How To Survive a Plague
"A model for the here and now of how social change occurs." (New York Times)
To be HIV-positive in the late 1980s was to be facing a death sentence. But a group of determined young people used nonviolent civil disobedience and grassroots participatory democracy to battle bigotry and neglect. They also helped identify promising new treatments and move them through trials and into drugstores in record time. In compelling detail, this meticulous documentary puts us smack in the middle of the emotional, inspirational story of the movement that turned AIDS into a manageable condition.

A Late Quartet
"Centered around four outstanding performances, Yaron Zilberman's fiction-feature debut feels like the work of a filmmaker who knows and appreciates the art form under scrutiny, laying a credible foundation for a story that lays bare the often melodramatic passions of the artistic soul." (Justin Chang, Variety)
When the beloved cellist of a world-renowned string quartet receives a life changing diagnosis, the group's future suddenly hangs in the balance. Inspired by and structured around Beethoven's Opus 131 String Quartet in C-sharp minor, the film pays homage to chamber music and the cultural world of New York and stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener and Christopher Walken.
