Let's Rock Again: Joe Strummer

LET’S ROCK AGAIN! is a one-hour music documentary following rock icon Joe Strummer as he tours across America and Japan. After a montage of Strummer’s glorious past with the seminal rock band the Clash, we are treated to a slice of life eleven years later on the comeback trail. Strummer’s main objective is simple -- to get his music out to the people and break even on his record, so that he can have another chance to rock again. This is achieved through photo shoots, magazine interviews and press appearances. In his humble quest, we even see Joe handing out flyers on the boardwalk and making a blind visit to a radio station in order to get his latest cd on the air and attract fans to his concert. Live performances feature songs from the Clash as well as material written with his new band, the Mescaleros. Part of the daily excitement of life on the road includes hanging out with celebrities backstage and taking the time to give every fan his due respect. A live studio recording is also featured in the mix. Directed by Dick Rude. Official Site. Running Time: 68 minutes. Showtimes: 7:00 Only.

Labor Fest 2006

LaborFest was established in 1994 to institutionalize the history and culture of working people in an annual labor cultural, film and arts festival. It begins every July 5th, which is the anniversary of the 1934 “Bloody Thursday” event. On that day, two maritime workers Howard Sperry, member of the ILA and George Coundourakis of the Marine Cooks and Stewards were killed by the police attack on strikers and their supporters. This touched off a general strike and led to the complete shutdown of the city. This was one of the most important general strikes in the history of the United States and led to hundreds of thousands of workers joining the trade union movement.

District B13

"District B13 serves as an ideal sampler for writer-producer Besson's distinct flavor of Eurotrash, where the men have manly goo-goo eyes for each other; the women are gold-hearted, punked-out skanks; and even the sluggiest thug wears Gautier. What makes District B13 stand out from the pack is the incorporation of parkour, a frankly dumbfounding extreme sport involving crazy rooftop shenanigans. Whatever the pseudo-philosophical bullstuff of its origins (the Wikipedia entry expounds at length about harmony and "being fluid like water"), it makes for the most irresistibly cinematic martial art since the hallowed Gymkata. Cribbing liberally from Escape from New York, the scenario takes place in a walled-off Paris of the future, where a heavily tattooed bad seed (parkour inventor David Belle) and a chrome-domed, trigger-happy detective must team up to stop the detonation of a hijacked neutron bomb. The plot, performances, and character development are all extremely negligible, but even the snobbiest cineaste will most likely wipe away the drool after seeing Belle, whose athletic ability suggests Jackie Chan after being bitten by an irradiated spider. Watching him vault over buildings, weave at top speed through crazy mazes of weathervanes, and fold himself through a postage-stamp-sized window in one limber movement renders all complaints about content or form pretty much moot." Andrew Wright, The Stranger. Directed by Pierre Morel. Written by Luc Besson, Bibi Naceri. With David Belle, Cyril Raffaelli, Tony D'Amario & Bibi Naceri. In French with English subtitles. Rated R.

Gram Parsons:
Fallen Angel

"Three decades after the untimely drug-related death of 26 -year-old trust fund baby, former Byrd and father of “alt country,” comes this definitive portrait of the fearless life and musical legend of Gram Parsons. Born Ingram Cecil Connor III to a wealthy Florida citrus-growing family, whose history reads like a Tennessee Williams play complete with suicide and alcoholism taking his parents by the time he was 18, Gram’s life had a privilege-tragedy dichotomy running through it, subtly underlined by director Gandulf Hennig (a musician himself). Hennig balances period footage with extensive interviews to great effect, while underpinning the visuals with sublime songs from the one of the greatest canons in popular music, sung in Gram’s heartbreaking broken angel voice. His all-too-short career saw him revitalize The Byrds, form The Flying Burrito brothers, hang out with the Rolling Stones and produce two timeless solo albums, all in pursuit of his vision of Cosmic American Music--a previously unthinkable synthesis of rock, soul and country. His life and its infamous aftermath, in which his body was kidnapped and ceremonially burned at the Joshua Tree, spawned a million myths, and his music has inspired countless imitators. The interviewees include such key witnesses to the Parsons phenomenon as acknowledged keeper of the flame Emmylou Harris, former hang-out buddy Keith Richards, wife Gretchen, former manager and self-confessed body burner Phil Kaufmann and other musical legends like ex-Byrd Chris Hillman, Steve Earle, Dwight Yoakam and Bernie Leadon of the Eagles. " -- Seattle Film Festival. Check out gramparsons.com. Directed and produced by Gandulf Hennig. Written by Gandulf Hennig and Sid Griffin. Germany, 2004, Running Time: 103 mins.

For Meryl (Justine Clarke), disaster is everywhere. She is constantly daydreaming of train wrecks, muggings, and shark attacks—her life is governed by an absurd and comical fear of catastrophe. One day, Meryl witnesses a real accident. This event links her to the lives of many other people who are affected by it. One is Nick (William McInnes), a photographer on the scene caught up in his own solitary fears. As Meryl and Nick clumsily attempt to connect, they are continually blocked by their own pent-up anxieties. As the two of them become wary lovers over a hot weekend, their story is circled by those of other characters, likewise trying to break free of their isolation and confusion. The winner of the equivalent of a Best Picture Oscar and numerous other awards in its native Australia, “Look Both Ways” is the first feature film to be written and directed by Sarah Watt, an Internationally acclaimed director of animated films. Watt’s debut won her the Discovery Award at the 2005 Toronto Film Festival, a prestigious prize given by a jury of more than 750 international critics. “Look Both Ways” is not afraid to look at melancholy subjects, but it is more Woody Allen than Ingmar Bergman. The film’s characters are full of foibles, neuroses and contradictions, but they are looked at with a gaze that is witty, insightful and compassionate. The title can be interpreted as a caution, but it is really an appeal to stop and “look both ways” at life. For more info, check out www.kino.com. Written and directed by Sarah Watt. Australia. 35mm.

Russian Dolls

A follow up to international sensation L'Auberge Espagnole, we again meet Xavier (played by Romain Duris of The Beat That My Heart Skipped) who seems dissatisfied with just about everything. An aspiring novelist, his greatest achievement is a co-credit on an over-the-top TV soap. His romantic life is equally disappointing, consisting of one-night stands and unfinished romances. He can seduce beautiful, smart and successful women - but ultimately sabotages even the most promising encounters. A chance meeting could be the answer to both his career slump and love life, but Xavier's lack of direction (and will-power) threatens to turn his good fortune into the ultimate heartbreak. Klapisch works again with many of the same actors who made L'Auberge Espagnole such a worldwide success, including international star Audrey Tautou and Cecile de France, one of France's most popular young stars. This film was a tremendous box office hit in France and nominated for 2 Cesar awards for Best Supporting Actress (Cecile de France and Kelly Reilly) and a Cesar for Best Editing.

Taking Guns
from Boys

Taking Guns from Boys is an hour-long documentary about a tiny West African nation ripped apart by a brutal civil war and the man who has come to establish peace there. United Nations Force Commander Daniel Opande has one year to deploy 15,000 multinational troops throughout Liberia, secure the country’s borders, make Liberia safe for civilians, and disarm 40,000 fighters from three warring factions. Liberia is just emerging from 14 years of literal and figurative darkness, during which 200,000 of its citizens were killed and another 800,000 separated from their homes. There has been no electricity in the capital, Monrovia, for 10 years. Liberian President Charles Taylor, indicted by an international court for war crimes in neighboring Sierra Leone, has just fled the country, creating an opportunity for Liberia to rebuild itself. Liberians desperately need peace as much as the three star Kenyan General needs to prove to them that he can deliver it. Opande was part of a United Nations mission here 10 years ago, when they began a disarmament that didn’t work. That failure ultimately preceded the restart of war that he has now returned to clean up. The pressure is on, and we are at Opande’s side to see how he handles it, beginning by landing in a country still armed by rebels who are not yet ready to stop fighting. Through Opande’s eyes you will see an Africa you have never seen before. You will meet an amazing man who has the courage to honestly examine his mistakes and try to do things right the second time. He’s a person who believes that things in Africa don’t always go from bad to worse, a person who will turn your preconceptions of Africa upside down. You will witness firsthand the historical end of a civil war. I was able to get incredible access to this United Nations peacekeeper during the most vulnerable, chaotic times of peacekeeping. Through intimate conversations with Opande, through watching his interactions with Liberians, and through conversations with the Liberians themselves I was able to ask: How do you end a civil war when you still have to play ball with some of its worst criminals? What are some of the problems with having a huge, political international organization attempt to manage what can be a very complex and delicate peacemaking process from afar? How do you handle these failed nation-states, their people, and their children? The film is shot in three trips that chronicle the beginning, middle and end of Opande’s year of service in Liberia.

State Of Fear

State of Fear: The Truth About Terrorism

"A cautionary tale for a world involved in a "global war on terror," Pamela Yates, Peter Kinoy and Paco de Onis' film examines the topical question of how an open society can balance demands for security with democracy. Building on the findings of the groundbreaking Peruvian Truth Commission, this must-see documentary examines the terror and intimidation inflicted on Peru's innocent civilians by both the Maoist Shining Path and the Fujimori dictatorship ­ leading to the deaths of almost 70,000 civilians ­ beginning with a succinct and compelling history of 20 years of Peruvian politics. At the same time, the film approaches these sweeping events of history with an invaluable human touch, as we hear the voices of the oppressed testifying to their senseless peril at the hands of both the guerrillas, and, soon after, the government-run death squads. An epic journey of one nation's encounter with a "war on terror," State of Fear resonates with intended parallels to the current situation in George W. Bush's United States, another country where official corruption has replaced the rule of law; where a possible threat to national security has been manipulated by a thieving cabal in the name of profit; and, where freedoms continue to be sacrificed in order to combat an enemy, real or imagined. Rather than leaving us with a bitter taste, State of Fear also manages to tell the story of courageous Peruvians who fought to maintain their democracy and persevered in their search for truth and justice." -- Vancouver Film Fest.
