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.

"[Seven] Psychopaths is viciously funny, delightfully clever, and meta without being cloyingly self-conscious." (Matt Goldberg, Collider.com)
Written and Directed by Irish playwright (The Lieutenant of Inishmore, The Pillowman) and Academy Award winning filmmaker Martin McDonagh, the madcap and darkly comedic Seven Psychopaths follows a struggling screenwriter (Colin Farrell) who inadvertently becomes entangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld. Co-starring Christopher Walken, Woody Harrelson, Tom Waits and a scene-stealing Sam Rockwell, McDonagh’s follow-up to In Bruges is hilarious and violent but not without the soul and wit he is known for.
Martin McDonagh. 2012. 109 m. R. US/UK. CBS Films.2:30 PM 5:00 PM 7:20 PM 9:40 PM

According to China
This 2010 film consists of Chinese television and Internet footage of people and events from the year 2008, a year like many others. Putting it together, Wang highlights no particular news event but rather the volume of information and the spaces that exist within it for reflection, imagination, and judgment. He explains that the intention of this film is “to use lies to speak a word of truth.”
