What She Said: The Art of Pauline Kael @ Online Screening
May 4 – May 31 all-day

A portrait of the work and life of controversial film critic Pauline Kael, and her battle to achieve success and influence in the 20th century movie business. In a field that has historically embraced few women film critics, Kael was charismatic, controversial, witty, and discerning. Her decades-long berth at The New Yorker energized her fans and infuriated her detractors on a weekly basis. Sarah Jessica Parker reads from Kael’s reviews; filmmakers Quentin Tarantino, Paul Schrader, and Francis Ford Coppola and critics Camille Paglia, Molly Haskell, Greil Marcus, and David Edelstein speak to her enormous gifts and influence.

“The most powerful, loved, and hated film critic of her time.” – Roger Ebert on Pauline Kael (1919-2001).

Someone Somewhere @ Online Screening
May 18 – Jun 3 all-day

In this Parisian bittersweet romance from Cédric Klapisch, warehouse employee Rémy and research assistant Mélanie have never met, but they live parallel lives: they reside in neighboring apartment buildings, ride the same subway route, and are troubled by bouts of insomnia and depression. Their days punctuated by unfulfilling jobs, they seek meaningful romantic and platonic connection. As they stumble through psychotherapy, dating apps, fainting spells, and family visits, the seemingly star-crossed duo orbit around each other but remain just out of reach. Klapisch spins a delicate “what-if” from their compartmentalization, exploring our increasingly hermetic modern urban life.

“[Klapish has] this singular knack for examining with SENSITIVITY and DETAIL the relationship highs and lows of the 40-and-under crowd”— VARIETY

“ENTERTAINING slow-burn Parisian romance”— THE GUARDIAN

 

Cédric Klapisch | Comedy/Drama | France/Belgium | 2019 | French with English Subtitles | $10

Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy @ Online Screening
May 22 – May 29 all-day

An intimate, candid perspective into the curious world of cookbook author and British ex-pat Diana Kennedy – widely regarded as the world’s expert on Mexican cuisine. At five feet tall and 97 years old, Diana is larger than life: a foul-mouthed fireball far more feisty and energetic than her age and petite frame let on. Author of nine Mexican cookbooks, she has spent over 60 years researching and documenting the regional cuisines of Mexico. Kennedy has lived ‘off-the-grid’ on an eight-acre ranch outside Zitácuaro, Michoacán since the 1970’s: composting, growing her own crops, and using solar power to run her home. Aware of her own mortality, she is working tirelessly to solidify the legacy of her life’s efforts, with the hope of turning her home into a foundation for culinary education in Mexico.

Featuring extensive interviews with Kennedy and famed chefsJosé Andrés, Rick Bayless, Gabriela Camara and Alice Waters, Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy provides an intimate look at the author of nine acclaimed cookbooks and a two-time James Beard Award winner. Diana is called the “Julia Child of Mexico”, but the feisty cook prefers “The Mick Jagger of Mexican Cuisine”.

“Elizabeth Carroll’s zingy documentary portrait… puts a relevant, environmentally-minded contemporary lens on Kennedy’s cherished traditionalism.” – Guy Lodge / Variety 

“Kennedy… proves endlessly good company, curious, compassionate and beloved in the country where she has spent the bulk of her adult life.” Danny Leigh / Financial Times
