Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes

Tuesday, Jan 22, 2019 at 2:00 PM - English

One of the most important record labels in the history of jazz ” and, by extension, that of American music ” Blue Note Records has been home to such groundbreaking artists as Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Bud Powell, Art Blakey, and Eric Dolphy, as well as present-day luminaries like Ambrose Akinmusire and Norah Jones. Founded in New York in 1939 by Jewish refugees Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff who fled Nazi Germany, Blue Note’s history goes beyond the records, encompassing the struggle of black artists to be heard, the conflict between art and commerce, and the idea of music as a revolutionary force. Through rare footage, session notebooks, and studio recordings by jazz icons, this affectionate documentary is an exhilarating deep dive into jazz’s continuing importance in American cultural conversation.

Cold War

Jan 22, 2019 to Jan 31, 2019 - various times - English

Oscar-winner Pawe‚ Pawlikowski follows his box-office sensation Ida with this bittersweet tale of an impossible love that won him the Best Director prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Set between the late 1940s and the early 1960s, Cold War is, as the title implies, a Soviet-era drama, but it inventively avoids the cliches of many a classical-minded World War II art film, tracking the tempestuous love between pianist Wiktor and singer Zula as they navigate the realities of living in both Poland and Paris, inside and outside of the Iron Curtain. Shot in crisp black-and-white and set to a bewitching jazzy score, Poland's entry to the 2019 Academy Awards consummately depicts an uncompromising passion caught up in the gears of history.

Drive

Saturday, Jan 26, 2019 at 11:30 PM - English

Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling teamed up for an arthouse-esque action film brimming with style that also delivers gut-punching thrills and memorable characters imbued with clear ambitions and fears. Gosling, then known as a romantic lead, plays a Hollywood stunt driver by day who moonlights as a wheelman for criminals by night. A loner by nature, the Driver becomes the target for LA’s most dangerous men after aiding the ex-convict husband (Oscar Isaac) of the beautiful neighbor he’s fallen in love with (Carey Mulligan). The ensuing carnage, high-speed chases, and pulsing 80’s-style synth score managed to both pay homage to predecessors such as Bullitt, The Driver, and Thief and elevate the film to one of 2011’s most popular and well-reviewed films.

Amidst cut-throat competition at a renowned auction house, Camila has just been promoted as the head of the Latin American Art Department when she is presented with one of her great-aunt Amelia Pelaez’s paintings as a last minute inclusion. The authenticity of the painting is questionable, Camila’s dedication to her great Aunt is not, forcing Camila to decide between her own burgeoning career and Amelia’s legacy. Written by Cuban-American playwright and Miami native Carmen Pelaez, this exciting world premiere thrusts us into the world of high stakes art dealing, Cuban politics, and a thrilling pursuit for the truth. Absent from Miami stages since her extended run of Rum and Coke at the Coconut Grove Playhouse, Ms. Pelaez will also star in the new play.

Capernaum

Friday, Feb 1, 2019 various times - English

Winner of the Jury Prize and the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, Capernaum, the new film by Nadine Labaki (Caramel), chronicles the journey of a clever, gutsy 12-year-old, Zain, who survives the danger of the city streets by his wits. He flees his parents and to assert his rights, takes them to court suing them for the “crime” of giving him life. While steeped in the quiet routines of ordinary people, Lebanon’s Official Entry to the Oscars is - like the neo-realist classics of De Sica and Rossellini - a film with an expansive palette: without warning it can ignite with emotional intensity, surprise with unexpected tenderness, and inspire with flashes of poetic imagery.

93 Queen

Thursday, Feb 7, 2019 at 7:30 PM - English

93QUEEN follows Rachel "Ruchie" Freier, a no-nonsense Hasidic lawyer and mother of six who is determined to shake up the "boys club" in her Hasidic community by creating Ezras Nashim, the first all-female EMT corps in New York City.

93QUEEN is set in the Hasidic enclave of Boro Park, Brooklyn, where EMT corps have long been the province of men. Though the neighborhood is home to the largest volunteer ambulance corps in the world (known as Hatzolah), the organization has steadfastly banned women from its ranks.

Now Ruchie and an engaging cast of dogged Hasidic women are risking their reputations - and, literally, the futures of their children - by taking matters into their own hands to provide dignified medical care to the Hasidic women and girls of Boro Park.

93QUEEN is one of the first portrayals in vérité of the lives of Hasidic women who embrace their cultural identity. At the same time, the film dashes many of the stereotypes that people have about the oft-misunderstood Hasidic culture - particularly Hasidic women.
