IDA

Returning to his native Poland for the first time in his career, acclaimed filmmaker Pawel Pawlikowski (MY SUMMER OF LOVE) confronts the contentious history of his birthplace in this intimate drama about a young nun in 1960s Poland who, on the verge of taking her vows, makes a shocking discovery about her past. The revelation triggers a heart-wrenching journey into into the secrets of her family’s repressed past, evoking the haunting legacy of the Holocaust and the realities of postwar Communism. Powerfully written and eloquently shot, IDA is a masterly evocation of a time, a dilemma, and a defining historical moment.    more

An essential and heartbreaking documentary which premiered at the prestigious Hot Docs film festival, CHILDREN 404 is an intimate look at the LGBTQ youth struggling against Russian leader Vladmir Putin’s anti-gay propaganda laws. In response to laws that forbid “propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations to minors,” activist Elena Klimova created Children 404, an online forum for Russian teens who have been harassed and alienated by a community obliged to tell them they are sick, sinful, and abnormal. Despite risks to their own safety in this dangerous climate, two Russian documentarians collect their anonymous stories of humiliation, discrimination, and courage.    more

FRANK

Acclaimed Irish filmmaker Lenny Abrahamson delivers a wonderfully offbeat comedy about young wannabe musician Jon and an avant-garde band led by the enigmatic Frank. After a rocky start Jon ingratiates himself with the band members, and they retreat to a cabin in the woods to record an album. But as creative tensions grow the band’s entire raison d'être is called into question. Oscar nominee Michael Fassbender gives a standout performance as Frank, a musical genius who hides himself inside a large papier-mâché head, loosely inspired by outsider musicians such as Daniel Johnston, Captain Beefheart, and cult comedy legend Chris Sievey (a.k.a. Frank Sidebottom).    more
