Stalin Thought of You
The 106-year-old Boris Efimov, the most famous political cartoonist of the Soviet era, is one of most riveting storytellers you’ll ever meet. And the story he has to tell—his journey through the terrors of the Stalinist years, a time when his more charismatic brother was killed by Stalin—is a stunningly intimate history of the Soviet Union augmented with incredible archival footage. And as a portrait of totalitarian culture, it’s also a rich psychodrama of the complex relationship between power and its victims.

"This unassuming but quietly winning comedy-drama delivers on the promise of its title." (David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter)
Tom McCarthy (The Visitor, The Station Agent) returns with this new comedic drama, one of the big audience hits of this year's Sundance Film Festival. The film follows Mike Flaherty (Paul Giamatti), an attorney and high school wrestling coach who takes on the guardianship of an elderly client in a last ditch effort to save his legal practice. What appears to be a win-win proposition for him and his client quickly reveals itself to be much more complicated than anticipated, when the client's teenage grandson shows up at his door in need of a guardian himself.

Einsatzgruppen: The Death Brigades
An eye-opening chronicle of epic evil, this is one of the most important documentaries of recent years. It reveals the story of the Nazi mobile killing squads that systematically murdered over a million Eastern European Jews even before deportations to killing centers began. Who were the men who carried out this genocide? Prazan’s definitive film, which has been compared to Shoah, features astounding, never-before-seen footage, including color “home movies” taken by the Germans themselves, along with searing interviews.
MichaŽl Prazan. 2009. 180 m. NR. France, English/French/German with subtitles. National Center for Jewish Film.5:00 PM 7:00 PM
