Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel
"With her lacquered black hair and Kabuki-like face, one-time 'ugly duckling' Vreeland was her own work of art and, as the film reminds us, she was one of the most important and amusing self-made works of art of her century." (James Verniere, Boston Herald)
Diana Vreeland: The Eye Has To Travel paints a vivid portrait of the late Harper’s BAZAAR and Vogue editor through letters, photos, animation, and excerpts from conversations with writer and her memoirist, George Plimpton. Witty, stylish and always original, Vreeland was a tastemaker and trailblazer for career-minded women.
Lisa Immordino Vreeland. 2012. 82 m. PG-13. USA. Samuel Goldwyn.2:00 PM 3:55 PM 5:50 PM 7:45 PM 9:40 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 5:05 PM 9:55 PM

Noise/Up and Down
“Wang Wo’s deceptively simple films are experimental, emotional, and opinionated. Wang shoots moments of daily life and astutely organizes the footage in surprising ways to create his deep, thoughtprovoking work.” — Zhu Rikun
Noise (2007) and Up and Down (2008) take the direct cinema approach, immersing the viewer in a non-narrative, highly sensory experience of the chaotic sounds and images of urban China. Says Wang: “It is like offering a sacrifice to the noisy era.”
Wang Wo. 70 m. NR. .7:30 PM
