"The most moving documentary I have seen in years. Both an ardent love ltter to past vitality and a grateful salute to those who remain in place - the survivors, utterly without illusion, who refuse to leave. The filmmakers are so attuned to color and to shape that I was amazed by the handsomeness of what I was seeing. I'm not being perverse, this is a beautiful film." (David Denby, The New Yorker)
With a vivid palette and haunting score, Detropia sculpts a dreamlike collage of a grand city teetering on the brink of dissolution, struggling to survive postindustrial America while envisioning a radically different future.
Heidi Ewing/Rachel Grady. 2011. 90 m. NR. USA. Loki Films.2:30 PM 5:00 PM
Searching for Sugar Man
"An electrifying illustration of music's power to inspire and change lives on both sides of the footlights."
Academy Award Nominee for Documentary Feature
The greatest '70s rock icon that you've never heard of, Rodriguez's albums were critically well-received, but bombed on the U.S. charts. While he faded into obscurity in the States, his legend grew in South Africa, where a bootleg copy of his album made it to the airwaves and quickly became a phenomenal success. The film follows two of Rodriguez's biggest fans, who travel to the U.S. in hopes of finding out what happened to the singer whose anti-establishment message connected with them during the dark days of apartheid. Searching for Sugar Man is a story of hope, inspiration, and the resonating power of music.

"Jarecki, it's clear, has the talent to make shrewdly pleasurable Hollywood movies. Here's hoping Arbitrage is the first of many." (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly)
Arbitrage is a taut and alluring Wall Street thriller about love, loyalty, and high finance. Richard Gere's performance as a businessman forced to confront the limits of his own moral duplicity is already garnering awards buzz. From writer Nicholas Jarecki, making his feature directorial debut, Arbitrage also stars Susan Sarandon and Brit Marling (Another Earth).
Nicholas Jarecki. 2012. 100 m. R. US/Poland. Roadside Attractions .2:40 PM 5:10 PM 7:20 PM 9:30 PM
Never Stand Still: Dancing at Jacob's Pillow
"An exhilarating documentary featuring every kind of dance form imaginable in rapid, kinesthetically gripping visuals." (San Francisco Examiner)
The range of expression and a deep connection between performer and place are palpable as Ted Shawn, Paul Taylor, Suzanne Farrell, Mark Morris, Judith Jamison, and others come to Jacob’s Pillow, the mecca in the Berkshires. This beautiful documentary immerses us in the artists’ world through performances, intimate interviews, behind-the-scenes glimpses, and rare archival footage.
