2016. USA. Dir: Ron Clements et al. With Auli’i Cravalho. Animated. 107 min.
Disney’s island-hopping adventure is a serene breath of fresh sea air, ditching much of the studio’s tired princess cliche?s in favor of a bold new vision. The Pacific Island songcraft of Opetaia Foa’i meets the showtune sparkle of that Miranda guy, scoring Moana’s quest across an unparalleled animated oceanscape.
2015. USA. Dir: J. J. Abrams. With Daisy Ridley, John Boyega. 135 min.
Forget the prequels (seriously, forget them); with a new, young cast and Abrams at the helm, the Force is stronger than ever in Episode VII. Expertly balancing nostalgia and freshness, Abrams ushers the spirit of the original trilogy into the 21st century – with some sic action scenes to boot.
2014. France/Switzerland. Dir: Jean-Luc Godard. With Héolïse Godet. 70 min.
This cerebral and wildly inventive visual essay from the canonical French director has garnered international praise as a milestone of 3-D technology. The free-flowing narrative loosely represents the stories of two couples and one dog, all rendered through tantalizingly strange and ingenious imagery. We’re proud to present this film’s CT premiere.
