Citizenfour

After years researching her film about our increasingly surveillance nation, MacArthur Genius Fellowship and Pulitzer Prize recipient Laura Poitras began receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four," who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by U.S. intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she and Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes. (U.S., 2014, 118m, DCP, Radius TWC)

Art and Craft

“Perversely satisfying… The art world deserves him.” –NY Times

Legendary art forger Mark Landis has mimicked the works of Picasso, the 15th-century masters and even Walt Disney. But he’s not in it for money: his delivery of his works is a kind of performance art, as he donates his pieces to museums around the country. When he dupes a tenacious amateur investigator, it seems that the show is approaching its finale. Sam Cullman and Jennifer Grausman’s hugely entertaining doc is as a cat-and-mouse art caper that delves into authenticity and obsession (U.S., 2014, 89m)

Keep on Keepin' On

From producer Quincy Jones and director Al Hicks comes this inspiring tribute to Clark “CT” Terry, a living legend whose career spans more than seven decades. Terry is one of jazz’s most prolific and beloved musicians: he counts Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, and Duke Ellington among his many admirers, and Dizzy Gillespie called him “the greatest jazz trumpet player on earth.” Hicks explores Terry’s personal approach to jazz, his dedication to teaching, and his friendship with a young blind piano player named Justin Kauflin. At 90 years old, and suffering from the debilitating effects of diabetes, Terry continues to share his wisdom with the next generation. When times get tough, he tells his students, just keep on keepin’ on. (U.S., 2014, 86m)

Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival: Gett: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem

“Expertly written, brilliantly acted” –Variety     “An astonishing work of craftsmanship” –Hollywood Reporter

An Israeli woman (Ronit Elkabetz, “The Band’s Visit”) seeking to finalize a divorce (gett) from her estranged husband finds herself effectively put on trial by her country’s religious marriage laws in this powerhouse courtroom drama from sibling directors Shlomi and Ronit Elkabetz. Viviane’s determination to fight for her freedom and the ambiguous role of the rabbinical judges shape a procedure where tragedy vies with absurdity in this searing drama. “Gett” made its international debut this year at Cannes and is Israel’s submission for the Academy Awards Best Foreign Picture. Tickets available at CCA and at www.SantaFeJFF.org.

11:00a Sunday, November 30 , coffee preceding film begins at 10:30a

Encore show added 4:00p Thursday, Dec 4!

Ghibli Celebration: Princess Mononoke

“Exotically beautiful … breathtakingly rendered … it’s the film's stirring use of nature, myth and history that make it so special.“ –New York Times
Animation’s unsurpassed epic, Hayao Miyazaki’s film follows a battle between humans, gods and nature. It includes several iconic characters: a demonic boar—drawn as a furious tangle of pulsating wormlike strands; the hero Ashitaka, cursed after being wounded; the god-like Princess Monokoke, with her blood-smeared face, astride a white wolf; and the Forest Spirit, who brings the earth to life with each step he takes. With the voices of Billy Crudup, Claire Danes, Gillian Anderson, Minnie Driver, Billy Bob Thornton, Jada Pinkett Smith, and John DiMaggio. (Japan, 1997, 134m, new 35mm print, recommended for ages 11 and up; features intense battle scenes)
