One Year Anniversary!
Rivers and Tides
One year ago on June 26, the Roxie Cinema and Northern California discovered RIVERS AND TIDES: ANDY GOLDSWORTHY WORKING WITH TIME. Since that time, the movie has won the German equivalent of an Academy Award for both Best Documentary and Best Cinematography, while multitudes of critics from around the nation have jumped on the bandwagon. But it was the initial, overwhelming reception here in the Bay Area that insured the movie would go on to be experience by hundreds of thousands in theaters all over the United States. This one-year anniversary performance is a tribute your enlightened embrace.
"Ravishingly beautiful " -- Stephen Holden, NY Times
RIVERS AND TIDES is co-presented with The Trust For Public Land
What I Want My Words To Do To You:
Raw, unsettling, and surprisingly frank, WHAT I WANT MY WORDS TO DO TO YOU: Voices from Inside a Women's Maximum Security Prison, a feature-length documentary focusing on a writing group led by internationally acclaimed playwright and activist Eve Ensler ("The Vagina Monologues") at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in Westchester, New York.
Most of the members of Ensler's group have been convicted of murder and many face the possibility of spending the rest of their lives in prison. The film documents the prisoners delving into and exposing the most terrifying places in themselves, as they grapple with the nature of their crimes and their own culpability. Among them are several high-profile inmates, including former Weather Underground members Kathy Boudin and Judith Clark, and Pamela Smart, whose story was fictionalized in Gus Van Sant's film, "To Die For." The film culminates in a performance of the inmates' writing by Oscar-nominee Glenn Close, Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei, Oscar-nominee Rosie Perez, Hazelle Goodman ("Deconstructing Harry"), and Mary Alice ("Sunshine State") before an audience of over 300 inmates. With Eve Ensler and the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility Writing Group. Featuring performances by Mary Alice, Glenn Close, Hazelle Goodman, Rosie Perez, and Marisa Tomei. USA, 2003. ENGLISH. 78 mins. COLOR. DV. Showtimes: Nightly at 6,8, & 10:00pm. Additional Wed, Sat & Sun matinees at 2:00 & 4:00.
An eye-opener!-- Edward Guthmann, S.F. Chronicle
Dennis "The Menace" Scheyer, host of The Menace's Attic on KUSF and SLAMDANCE Present: RAMONES: END OF THE CENTURY described as, "A reminiscence of New York in the 1970s, of the dawn of CBGB and, most of all, of the Ramones, Michael Gramaglia and Jim Fields' End of the Century is that rare music-world documentary truly deserving of the much-misappropriated moniker Behind the Music. The movie relives every up, down, and in-between of the seminal punk rockers' 20+ years career, charting addictions, lineup changes and other roads to ruin in strikingly candid, unsentimental terms (and with the participation of nearly all band-mates). It's an exhaustive, encyclopedic work--the ultimate fan-boy (or girl) documentary.” Directors Michael Gramaglia & Jim Fields will be in attendance for the screenings. TWO SHOWS ONLY: 7:30 & 9:30pm. $8.00. Tickets available at Roxie box office only. The box office opens 1 hour before the 7:30 show. NO DISCOUNTS OR PASSES ACCEPTED FOR THIS SPECIAL ENGAGEMENT! USA, 2003. ENGLISH. 85 mins. COLOR. DV.
The Clash were the band who made Punk real, they explored and expanded musical boundaries like no act before or since. They were the coolest, the most political, the most eclectic and most thrilling of the Punk bands. This critically acclaimed documentary is the official and definitive story of The Clash, made with the participation of all the original band members, fifteen years after they broke up. Sadly, in December 2002, Joe Strummer, punk pioneer and founding member of the Clash passed away, leaving behind a legacy that will remain an influence on future modern rock music. This year The Clash were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and were presented with a Grammy Award -a fitting tribute to their founder. UK, 2003. ENGLISH. 82 mins. COLOR. DV.Showtimes: Nightly at 6:00, 8:00, and 10:00pm with Wed/Sat/Sun Matinees at (2:00) and 4:00.
