CANNES GRAND JURY PRIZE WINNER!

Distant

Mahmut is a relatively successful commercial photographer who has been struggling to come to terms with the growing gap between his artistic ideals and his professional obligations. His tedious workload, coupled with the lingering loss he still feels for his ex-wife (newly married and on the verge of leaving Istanbul for Canada), leaves Mahmut clinging to the melancholic and obsessive routines of his solitary life. Without warning, Mahmut’s distant relative Yusuf arrives in Istanbul determined to find a job aboard a ship so that he may fulfill his dream of traveling around the world. In need of a place to stay as he searches for work, Yusuf imposes himself on Mahmut, who resents the sudden intrusion, but nonetheless feels obliged to help his family. It doesn’t take long for Yusuf to discover that the work he is looking for isn’t available, but he manages to prolong his stay with Mahmut by formulating stories that would suggest otherwise. His hope waning, Yusuf resorts to spending his days drifting through the streets of Istanbul, slowly coming to the realization that without work he may soon need to return home. Mahmut tries to help by offering him a job as his assistant during a photography shoot, but the fix is temporary. As the two men struggle to make a connection, communication is slowly reduced to the bare minimum; and their time together must come to an end. Turkish auteur Nuri Bilge Ceylan wrote, directed, photographed, produced and co-edited this profoundly beautiful picture about detachment and isolation without allowing the austerity of his story to overwhelm the heartwarming, often comic, moments that permeate this award-winning film. Set in a wintry, contemporary Istanbul, the stunning cinematography was clearly instrumental in procuring the Grand Prix at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival, where Muzaffer Özdemir and Mehmet Emin Toprak also shared best actor honors for their remarkable performances. Director/Writer/Cinematographer: Nuri Bilge Ceylan Runningtime 110 mins. Turkey. 2002. Color. DV. In Turkish with English subtitles. Showtimes: Nightly at 7:00 & 9:15. Additional Wed, Sat & Sun matinees at 2:30 & 4:45 NO 7:00 SHOW MON, MAY 3

"e pick! Achingly funny!" -- SF Gate

Fasten your seatbelts. You’re about to embark on an epic investigation of the long and glorious history of human stupidity. Setting out on an exhaustive search for its origins and true meaning, director Albert Nerenberg heads towards culture’s lowest common denominator. He careens at warp speed through sound bites from television news, reality TV shows, Internet sites and popular films, then on to institutions of higher learning obsessed with the study of intelligence. After a tour through the worlds of fundamentalist religion and politics, he finally arrives at – surprise! – George W. Bush, the president of the world’s only superpower and the most heavily armed nation on earth. What starts out as an entertaining romp through mass culture soon becomes ominous as cultural critics, authors, academics, entertainers, and people on the street reveal the economics and politics behind the dumbing down of contemporary culture. Hilarious, smart and very scary. Watch The Trailer. For more info, stumble into www.trailervision.com. Running Time: 72 mins. Show times: Nightly at 7:00. Additional Saturday and Sunday matinees at (4:30).

A best-selling Author for 30 years, Carlos Castaneda inspired millions to break free from social dogma, fueling controversy over his work's authenticity and assertions of perceiving non-ordinary reality, during an apprenticeship with Yaqui sorcerer, don Juan Matus. Genius, guru, cult leader or fraud? No one really knows. Over three years in the making, this shocking expose' explores Castaneda's mythic impact, controversial teachings and cult following. Candid interviews backed with dazzling animation and experimental footage offer an intense visual and intellectual experience. Where fans created the icon, his books created the myth. Yet when others capitalized on status and fame, Castaneda receded, embodying the moniker of 'enigma' to such an extreme degree, that it compounded suspicion over his life's work. To this day, Castaneda's books are ferociously debated raising questions over the sincerity of his character, authenticity of his findings, and suspicions over his true intentions.

Morning Sun

The film Morning Sun attempts in the space of a two-hour documentary film to create an inner history of the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (c.1964-1976). It provides a multi-perspective view of a tumultuous period as seen through the eyes—and reflected in the hearts and minds—of members of the high-school generation that was born around the time of the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, and that came of age in the 1960s. Others join them in creating in the film’s conversation about the period and the psycho-emotional topography of high-Maoist China, as well as the enduring legacy of that period. Morning Sun is not a comprehensive or chronological history of the Cultural Revolution as such; nor is it a study of elite politics or of student factionalism. The film essays rather a psychological history. It attempts a cinematic account of experiences and emotions as reflected on by historical actors who themselves were enacting a history that they had learned and wished to recreate in their own lives. It is also a film about the cultures and convictions, as well as the historical events, that created the impetus, language, style and content of the period—the films and plays, the music and ideas, the rhetoric and ideologies, the education and the aspirations, the frustrations and fantasies, as well as the realities and ardor, that a new revolution that attempted to remake revolution itself entailed. Official Website. Written, directed and produced by Carma Hinton, Geremie R. Barme, and Richard Gordon. In Color. Digital video. 117 mins. USA. 2003. In English and Chinese, with both English and Chinese subtitles. Showtimes: 2:00 pm only.

"Bravo for "Morning Sun," a densely packed documentary that is about as comprehensive a look at the Cultural Revolution as can be imagined in a two- hour work" -- SF Chronicle

Special Preview Screening to Benefit Magic Theatre
followed by discussion featuring Larry Eilenberg and director Michael Almereyda

This So-Called Disaster

Chronicling the direction, of Sam Shepard's play "The Late Henry Moss", for its world premiere at the Magic Theater in San Francisco in late 2000, THIS SO-CALLED DISASTER documents the final three weeks leading up to the first night, focusing on the A and B list actors who make up Shepard's cast. Rather than bringing a play to the big screen, this documentary attempts to expose the emotional process that actors go through in attempting to adapt the words of a play to the flesh and blood of the stage. Having said that, the play tells the story of two long-estranged brothers (Penn, Nolte) who are reunited in New Mexico by the death of their alcoholic father (played by James Gammon), with Woody Harrelson playing a local who went fishing with him, and Cheech Marin playing his neighbor. Almereyda deserves extra credit for not glamorizing the troupe. Before he shows any behind the scenes shenanigans, he establishes the serious intent of the work. . Starring: Sam Shepard, Nick Nolte, Sean Penn, T-Bone Burnett, James Gammon Directed by: Michael Almereyda HAMLET; NADJA; ANOTHER GIRL, ANOTHER PLANET).

For tickets:
Up to May 1: Call Magic Theatre Box Office at (415) 441-8222
May 2-3: In person at the Roxie Cinema

The SF DocFest has been playing the waters of real life since the spring of 2001. Our motto back then: Reality Is Fun! Our mandate: No social issue docs. But reality seems quite a bit less fun since the fall of that year. All that frivolity seemed a bit, well, frivolous. So we took 2003 to regroup. Now DocFest’s back to stay, and we’re not hiding from reality anymore. There’s still plenty of fun, but with an added dose of the dark side, straight up. Just like life. Enjoy the festival!

In the Realms of the Unreal
Jessica Yu, USA, 81 min. 5:15pm

In the Realms of the Unreal is the title of Henry Darger’s 15,000-page illustrated novel, a bizarre epic fantasy about a great war between the ferocious Vivian Girls and the Glandelinians who want to enslave them. It was discovered, along with mountains of other artwork and writings, after Darger, a lifelong recluse, died in a Catholic poorhouse in 1973. He has become one of the art world’s great mysteries, and something of a cottage industry has sprung up around his work. But this is the first movie about Darger and his work. Oscar winner Jessica Yu (Breathing Lessons, 1996) has created a gorgeous homage to this strange and disturbing work, merging interviews with people who knew him, dramatic readings of his writings—his novel read by young Dakota Fanning, currently starring in Man on Fire with Denzel Washington, and his autobiography read by Larry Pine—and in a striking, bold move, animated sequences that bring his drawings and paintings to life. Darger’s life and art illuminate each other as never
before.

Slasher
John Landis, USA 2004, 86 min. 7:15pm

John Landis, who’s made some of the great American comedies of the last 30 years (Animal House, Trading Places and The Blues Brothers to name a few) makes his first documentary, a peek into the even-sleazier-than-you-imagined world of the car salesman. And there’s no car salesman like Slasher’s “star,” beer-swilling, gravel-voiced Michael Bennett. Shot in Memphis, the film captures the man whose innate talent for creating “slasher sales” and unloading crappy cars is a horrific/hilarious sight you won’t soon forget. He’s a manic-depressive alcoholic car-wreck of a guy, and yet he has a devoted, loving wife and family at home, and a staff of hard-working (and equally hard-drinking) partners who follow him anywhere. Slasher is a true story about a bunch of born liars, with a cast of salesmen—and startlingly naive car-buyers (yes, there’s still a sucker born every minute)—that no one could have made up. Driven by a spectacular soundtrack of soul-stirring Stax hits, it’s an uproarious slice of American life. www.ifctv.com

Up for Grabs
Michael Wranovics, USA 2004, 90 min.
West Coast Premiere
9:15 & 11pm

You must remember this: Barry Bonds hits his record-breaking 73rd home run of the season into the stands at PacBell Park, and two guys claim ownership of the Bonds-bashed ball after it lands. Do they work out a deal, share and share alike, in the true spirit of baseball? Nope—they take that other all-American route and lawyer up. At first, it looks like a cut-and-dried case—surely a video of Alex Popov’s catch can’t lie. But as the movie, and the case, continues, lies and loyalties switch sides more than once, and both parties duke it out on television and in the courts. Who gets the ball? Even if you know the outcome of the story, this film is a priceless slice of ridiculousness. You don’t need to be a baseball fan to love Up for Grabs—it’s a blistering and riotous allegory for the final days of the Bay Area’s boom that went bust. UpForGrabs.com
