Roger Ebert’s life story becomes a must-see experience for everybody who truly loves the movies. Touching, funny and even buoyant despite the circumstances of Ebert’s last illness during its production, it’s a marvelous celebration of his passion for all films, from Faster Pussycat Kill Kill! to Cries and Whispers. 120 min.
“A work of deftness and delicacy, by turns a film about illness and death, about writing, about cinema and, finally, and very movingly a film about love”-NY Times.
“A uniquely powerful motion picture, the kind of open and honest portrayal I can’t ever recall having seen about a celebrity…stands not only as a moving piece of documentary cinema but an epitaph” – ReelViews.
Direction: Steve James

CITIZEN KOCH (USA 2014; NR)
The bloated influence of the Koch family in this era of wide-open campaign donations shows the dangerous abuses of wealth that have unbalanced our democratic system. Directors Carl Deal and Tia Lessin (Trouble the Water) examine the blunt end of the money sledgehammer and its impact on average Americans in this disturbing documentary. “If you have a shred of idealism left, it’s hard to watch… without a mounting sense of despair and outrage over the influence that money has come to wield over modern elections”- Washington Post.
