Film Series: Monday Special Free Preview Screening – Lady Bird

2017. USA. Dir: Greta Gerwig. With Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf. 93 min.


“I’ve tried – and failed – to think of another film that so sharply and humorously shows what it’s like to be a teenage girl.”
“Suddenly, A Shot Rang Out”

“The real surprise is just how honest and personal this film proves to be — again, par for the course with Gerwig, and yet, fairly rare among first-time directors, who haven’t had nearly so much practice simply being real.”
– Peter Debruge, Variety

“‘Lady Bird’ consolidates the style and sensibility of a generation caught between the last gasp of the 20th century and post-9/11 disillusionment like nothing else before. It looks back on that moment less to relish memories of a bygone era than to commune with its impact on young adults today.”
-Eric Kohn, Indie Wire

Film Series: I Am Not Your Negro

2017. USA/France/Belgium/Switz.
Dir: Raoul Peck. Documentary. 93 min.


This urgent doc illuminates the words of James Baldwin, one of the most influential voices of the Civil Rights movement. Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript Remember This House forms the foundation for the images, archival footage, newsreel clips, and interviews brilliantly interwoven by Peck and underscored by Samuel L. Jackson’s evocative narration.
