The Homestretch follows three homeless teens as they fight to stay in school, graduate, and build a future. Each of these smart, ambitious teenagers - Kasey, Anthony and Roque - will surprise, inspire, and challenge audiences to rethink stereotypes of homelessness as they work to complete their education while facing the trauma of being alone and abandoned at an early age. Through haunting images, intimate scenes, and first-person narratives, these teens take us on their journeys of struggle and triumph. As their stories unfold, the film connects us deeply with larger policy issues of juvenile justice, immigration, foster care, and LGBTQIA rights.

Tongues of Heaven*

 

Sunday, November 2nd, 2014 3:30pm - 5:30pm

 

"You already know the importance of saving a language. You know the reason, but not the motivation to save it," admits Anchi Chen, one of the collaborators for TONGUES OF HEAVEN. With 96% of the world's population speaking only 4% of the world's languages, what does it mean today to speak your mother tongue? To put it another way, what do you lose when you lose your native language? Using video as the primary medium of expression, four young indigenous women from the Austronesian language territories Taiwan and Hawai'i share their questions, desires and challenges of learning their heritage languages.

 

Co-presenters:

The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM)

TaiwaneseAmerican.org

North American Taiwanese Women's Association (NATWA)

 

Endorsement:

Through the lens of her camera, Anita Chang and her collaborators follow the extraordinary prehistoric expansion of the Austronesian-speaking peoples across the Pacific from Taiwan to Hawai'i, and in her journey she provides a sensitive portrait of the impending death or hoped-for rebirth of some of the languages that arose through this monumental 4,000 year old migration, one of the greatest in human history. Much has been written in the professional linguistics literature in recent years about language endangerment, but this film puts that message in powerful visual form, relating it to individual speakers on whom the future of an entire language or culture may depend.

-Robert A. Blust, Linguist, University of Hawaii

The Joe Show*

 

October 24th - 30th, 2014 2 Shows Daily

 

Eight years in the making, The Joe Show is a shocking and wildly entertaining documentary on America's most controversial Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, and his ring-master's approach to modern media, politics and law enforcement. The nature of politics has changed so that in today's world of instant fame, politicians need their time in the spotlight. And Joe loves the spotlight. Response time is compromised for screen time, credibility for celebrity and safety for sound bites. Joe's desire for fame corrupts everything he stands for and the voters cheer as ratings soar. The Joe Show is a feature-length documentary that explores how Joe has used fear, crime and his role as Sheriff to make himself the most famous law enforcement officer in the world. Racism, sex crimes, illegal immigration, first amendment rights and multiple deaths at the hands of his employees are all issues Joe faces and spins. He's famous, he's outrageous, he may be dangerous... and it's all just part of The Joe Show, a tragic comedy of historic significance.

The strange circumstances lead Li to Jack Lai who is a master hypnotist and also in jail for manslaughter after taking the rap for a murder his wife committed under duress. Jack clearly knows who is responsible but is also clear that only he can identify the culprit. Li therefore springs Jack from jail and takes him along. Although they fail to catch the criminal, it is clear from the evidence in the apartment that there is a plot to steal two Egyptian diamonds worth millions.Inadvertently hypnotized by Jack, Inspector Li retrieves the diamonds from the safe. Jack takes them and heads off to give them to Ocean, who is holding his wife hostage. Inspector Li is arrested for stealing the diamonds. His colleagues use the situation to settle some old scores. En route to jail, Inspector Li escapes by jumping from the Qing Ma Bridge. His girlfriend, Brenda, still hopelessly in love with him, helps him to evade recapture to pursue Jack and the criminal mastermind Ocean in order to recover the diamonds.

The Wisdom Tree*

 

Thursday, September 18th, 2014 7:15pmStruggling to decipher a mysterious car accident, a quantum physicist, a neuroscientist and an FBI agent are drawn into an ever-deepening mystery. What follows is a meditative transformative journey through a maze of subliminal artworks, baffling scientific discoveries, introspective eastern mysticism and a series of puzzling events. Stuck in an enigmatic entanglement, they must unravel the most profound discoveries ever and save the human race from an enormous moral dilemma. Not in their wildest dreams could they have foreseen what lay ahead -- and neither will viewers.

 

The Wisdom Tree is a tale of human fears and desires, constructed around a classic drama with both sci-fi and mystic elements. This captivating and gripping mystery binds science (physics and neurology), art (fine art paintings and classical music) and mysticism (philosophy and spirituality) suggesting that the universe is multi-dimensional, strange, harmonic, and that - as Eastern spiritual traditions have long maintained - "All is one."

 

Though an original work of fiction, The Wisdom Tree heavily relies upon proven as well as proposed theories.

An inspirational life long journey that takes you across the United States and introduces you to some amazing runners.

 

A Long Run features Bob Anderson who started Runner's World magazine when he was 17 with $100. He grew the magazine to nearly a half million circulation before selling it to Rodale Press in 1984. How did he do it and why did he sell the magazine he loved?

 

47 years later he started his 50 race challenge... one year - 50 races - 350 miles.

 

His goal - Run under a 7 min/mile average pace at 64-years-old (which is equal to 5:30/mile average pace for a 30-year-old male or 6:00/mile average pace for a 30-year-old female). That's fast for any age!

 

Did he reach his goal? How did he cope with injuries? Weather? Hills? How did he recover each week?

 

Some of the runners besides Bob Anderson featured in the film include: Bill Rodgers, Paula Radcliffe, Joe Henderson, George Hirsch, Rich Benyo, Amol Sexena, JoAnn Dahlkoetter, Rich Stiller, Hans Schmid, JT Service, Pina Family, Wall Family, Billy Mills, Gerry Lindgren, Dave Zimmerman, Dean Karnazes, Monica Jo Nicholson, Coach Lloyd McGuire, Katie McGuire, Mary Etta Blanchard, John Young, Roger Wright and more...

Letter from an Unknown Woman*

 

Thursday, August 7th, 2014 7:30pm

 

In the winter of 1948, Beijing, a renowned writer (Jiang Wen) receives a letter from an unknown woman on his birthday. As he reads the letter, a female voiceover begins to recount a relationship he has forgotten. The woman, a Miss Jiang, tells of her first infatuation with the writer when she was in her early teens, when she was his neighbour at a siheyuan. When she moved back to Beijing years later as a student at the Peking Women's College, she had a brief liaison with him, after which she became pregnant. Days later, the writer had completely forgotten about her.

 

She gave birth to their son in Sichuan, during the war-torn years of the Second Sino-Japanese war. When she moved back to Beijing eight years later, after the war, she became a dance hostess to support her son. Although the two met again, the writer could not recognize her. They had one last liaison again. Though finding her familiar, the writer failed to pin down her identity. On the day after their son dies, she decides to write this letter to let him know of their existence.

Not One Less*

 

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014 7:30pm

 

Set in the People's Republic of China during the 1990s, the film centers on a 13-year-old substitute teacher, Wei Minzhi, in theChinese countryside. Called in to substitute for a village teacher for one month, Wei is told not to lose any students. When one of the boys takes off in search of work in the big city, she goes looking for him. The film addresses education reform in China, the economic gap between urban and rural populations, and the prevalence of bureaucracy and authority figures in everyday life. It is filmed in a neorealist/documentary style with a troupe of non-professional actors who play characters with the same names and occupations as the actors have in real life, blurring the boundaries between drama and reality.
