Happy New Year! Hope everyone enjoyed their New Years celebration. For this upcoming year, we have a slate of films we are releasing. In case you missed it, we published a 2016 film preview video last week.
We start the year off with our January film line up. Our releases for this month are listed below.
Hate Crimes in the Heartland – a documentary film and community outreach project by Emmy Award winner Rachel Lyon. Like no other documentary exploring this topic, Heartland portrays the shocking violence rooted in America’s history of racial hatred through the lens of Tulsa, Oklahoma, where two hate crimes, over 90 years apart, are impacting human rights, education and communities today. This is an in-depth analysis of current and past hate crimes in our country, bravely looking at horrific actions with a view to reconciliation.
Isn’t It Delicious – a dark comedy-drama about learning how to live, while in the midst of dying.
Set in present-day Connecticut and New York City, the film revolves around the alcoholic antics of Joan Weldon, the matriarch of an upper-middle class New England family, whose life is turned on its head when she discovers she is dying of lung cancer. While she’s figuring out her options, she sets out to reconcile her dysfunctional relationships with her three children, her husband and her former best friend. A fractured family of misfits finds and tries to fix themselves in this hilarious and heartbreaking story of a mother who seeks understanding.
