Filmmaker Jessica Yu's innovative documentary explores the parallel lives of legendary outsider artist Henry Darger. Reclusive janitor by day, visionary artist by night, Darger had virtually no friends but lived a rich imaginary life. Upon his death hundreds of watercolor paintings were discovered, along with a 15,000 page novel (bearing the same title as the film) detailing the exploits of seven angelic sisters who lead a rebellion against godless, child-enslaving men. Employing vivid animation and experimental elements, Yu immerses us in Darger's world and all its strange beauty, showing how he forged magic out of the bleakest of lives. USA. 2004. Running Time: 81 mins. Official Site. Mon - Fri Showtimes: Monday - Friday at 5:15. Sat. & Sun Showtimes: matinee (12:00 noon) only.

Presents
THE CENTURY OF THE SELF

The San Francisco Independent Film Festival is proud to present THE CENTURY OF THE SELF, a four-hour British documentary which “ponders the impact Freud's theories had on 20th century culture, particularly the way psychological ideas muddied the distinctions between consumerism, politics, democracy and advertising.” -Dennis Harvey, Variety. We live today in a society dominated by the self and its feelings. To 'be oneself' is no longer considered selfish but healthy and virtuous. THE CENTURY OF THE SELF shows how this revolution in how we see ourselves happened over the past 100 years. It asks if this has really been a liberation of the self or if it has just made us more vulnerable to being manipulated and controlled by those in power? To many in both politics and business this triumph of the self is the ultimate expression of democracy – power has finally moved to the people. This series examines the validity of that idea while recounting the extraordinary role members of the Freud family have played in fostering and encouraging this irresistible rise of the self, from Sigmund to Matthew. This 4-part documentary will be shown as two programs. The admission for Parts 1 & 2 is $8:00, $4.00 for seniors. The admission for Parts 3 & 4 is $4.00 for everyone. Directed, written and produced by Adam Curtis. 2004 UK. DV. Runningtime: 240 minutes. Don't forget to check out SF Indie Fest. Showtimes: Parts 1&2: Nightly at 7:00. Additional Sat. & Sun. matinees at 2:00. Parts 3&4: Nightly at 9:10. Additional Sat. & Sun matinees at 4:10.

"Remarkable. This is four hours of sheer brilliance, a film with the insight into contemporary life that usually takes scholars a full century's distance to acquire."
-- Mick LaSalle, SF Chronicle

"A fascinating viewpoint...there's nary a dull moment between wonderful archival clips and an extraordinary interview roster that encompasses strategists Dick Morris and Philip Gould, actress Celeste Holm (who shared Marilyn Monroe's psychiatrist), est founder Werner Erhardt, Mario Cuomo, surviving relatives of Freud and Bernaise, and many others." - SF Bay Guardian.

FRAMING THE DEBATE: HOW PROGRESSIVES CAN WIN.
A CONVERSATION WITH GEORGE LAKOFF

Why have conservatives dominated the national public policy debate and appropriated fundamental American values and language, from "freedom" to "compassion" to "patriotism"? Why don't Democrats communicate effectively, and why do they lack a unified message and constantly focus on boring policy issues to communicate their platform? Why do people vote against their self interests? Come find out Wed. Feb 16th, in a discussion of these and other critical issues with GEORGE LAKOFF, best-selling author of DON'T THINK OF AN ELEPHANT: KNOW YOUR VALUES AND FRAME THE DEBATE--THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE FOR PROGRESSIVES. Dr. Lakoff, a Senior Fellow at the Rockridge Institute, Professor of Linguistics at UC Berkeley and nationally-recognized expert on language and politics will discuss how conservatives think, how to counter their arguments, and how Democrats can communicate more effectively about key public policy issues. He'll answer questions, too. Tickets are $15 - a portion of proceeds will go to The Rockridge Institute. Doors open at 7:30pm, and the program will start at 8pm sharp. Please do RSVP. Drinks next door at Dalva (3121 16th Street) following the program. For more info, log into www.partyprogressive.com.

Head On

After a heavy night of drinking, 40-year old Cahit, on a path of self-destruction, drives his car head-on into a building in Hamburg. He enters a psychiatric clinic where he is approached by the young, somewhat carefree Sibel, who asks him to marry her. Desperate to escape the constraints of her fanatic Muslim-Turkish-German family, Sibel had already attempted suicide and now she sees a culturally acceptable marriage as her only means of freedom. Reluctantly, he agrees to the union and the two move in together. Against the odds, the mismatch works; with regular meals and a clean apartment, Cahit starts to clean up his act, while Sibel relishes her new life, going clubbing and picking up guys as she wishes. But convenience and friendship soon turn to love, a complication that sends Cahit towards destruction, Sibel to Istanbul and the possibility of their relationship lasting problematic. GOLDEN BEAR AWARD WINNER! Winner of the European Film Award for Best Film and German Film Awards for Best Picture, Best Direction, Best Actress, Best Actor and Best Cinematography.

"Impeccably made, uncompromising in its implacable vision of the deranging power of love, sex and controlled substances, this savage and staggering film knows how to take our breath away"
-- Kenneth Turan, LA Times.

"Love doesn't just hurt in the jagged German romance Head-On; it cuts and bleeds and even kills." -- Manohla Dargis, New York Times.

" In its breathlessly claustrophobic way the movie is vital and passionate, and lit with a lyric beauty that washes over love scenes and violent acts alike...the movie achieves a Romeo-and-Juliet romanticism that's hard to resist. " -- Ella Taylor, L.A. Wwwkly.
