Untitled (Just Kidding)

–Recent works by Jesse Malmed

Santa Fe native but Chicago-based artist and curator Jesse Malmed presents a selection of recent experimental shorts. While unexpecting the expected, viewers can look forward to bodyswaps, closed captioning seeking sentiences, cloud covers, singtalk, the sitcom set and séance nonfictions. By turns comedic and poetic, Jesse's work practices sustainable sourcing, utilizing a wide-range of materials from his own camera, vigorous and elliptical research practices and the ever-growing archives of the arcane, avant and popular. Artist present!
     Jesse Malmed's work in moving images, performance, text, occasional objects and their overlaps and gaps have found temporary homes at museums, festivals, basements, bars and barns throughout the world.

Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival: Flix and Chopstix


“ … roaring, over-the-top performances …”–Boston Globe

If you didn’t see The Producers when originally released in 1968, you are in for a treat, and if you did see it then, it is just as good if not better the second time around. The late Roger Ebert called The Producers with Zero Mostel “one of the funniest films ever made”. This Mel Brook’s spoof of the Broadway stage was Brooks first film and one that broke boundaries when it first premiered.

The Producers is part of the Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival’s Flix & ChopStix, a Christmas day celebration of comedy and Chinese Food. Film tickets available at CCA. Film and dinner packages available at www.SantaFeJFF.org.

“Woody Allen’s classic comedy” –Slant Magazine

Woody Allen’s "Annie Hall" unites the neurotic and romantic Alvy Singer (Woody Allen) with the ditsy Annie Hall (Diane Keaton) in this semi-autobiographical portrait of a love affair filled with Allen’s trademark paranoia and zany humor. Considered to be one of Allen’s best films, the “lobster scene” alone is a comedy classic.

"Annie Hall" is part of the Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival’s Flix & ChopStix, a Christmas day celebration of comedy and Chinese Food. Free supervised programming for children ten and under with paid adult admission to the film. Film tickets available at CCA. Film and dinner packages available at www.SantaFeJFF.org.

Touch of Evil

"Evocative and brilliant … a wondrous gift no movie lover should miss.” –Chicago Tribune

There’s never been a noir quite like it. Orson Welles’ imaginative and virtuoustic classic—reassembled by a team including the legendary editor Walter Murch, and now digitally restored for the first time—follows  the Mexican drug trade, as Charlton Heston, Janet Leigh and Welles himself play characters on a collision course, along with Marlene Dietrich. With music by Henry Mancini, and cinema’s most famous tracking shot (courtesy of cinematographer Russell Metty), this is a director’s cut for the ages: a true celebration of Welles’ peerless talent. (U.S., 1958/1998, 112m, DCP)

Inside The Mind of Leonardo

"Atmospheric, gripping and beautifully dramatized...a wonderful and unmissable thing" –Guardian
Only 21 paintings by Leonardo da Vinci exist, but 6,000 pages of his private journals survive. This extraordinary wealth of drawings and writing represent Leonardo's stream of consciousness: his passion, obsession, ambition, philosophy, frustrations and genius. This film uses motion graphics and deep research to bring Leonardo’s creative process to life, presenting a surprising and truthful portrayal of mankind's greatest polymath in his own words. BAFTA winner (and DOCTOR WHO star) Peter Capaldi portrays Leonardo, capturing the essence of the human being behind the genius. (U.K., 2013, 85m, Submarine)

She's Beautiful When She's Angry

Intensely relevant and timeless.” –Examiner

Mary Dore’s film offers a provocative and rousing look at the women’s movement of the 1960’s, as seen through the eyes of grassroots organizers across the country. Alternatively thrilling, scandalous, and hilarious, the documentary tells the story of a revolution for equal pay, a right to child care, and not least, sexual freedom. These battles are still being fought. (U.S., 2014, 92m, International Film Circuit)

Magician: The Astonishing Life & Work of Orson Welles

A lively and fresh retelling of the protean artist's eventful life.” –The Hollywood Reporte

The Oscar-winning filmmaker Chuck Workman gives an eye-popping, thrilling survey of the remarkable genius of Orson Welles on the eve of his centenary, capturing the enigma of his career as a Hollywood star, his rises (and repeated falls) as a Hollywood director, and the continuing legacy of an icon who remains one of cinema’s essential visionary artists.

One of the most remarkable movies that I have ever seen. This isn't hyperbole.” –Huffington Post
Richard Linklater began filming this story of a family’s evolution in 2002, and for the next 12 years followed the story of a boy (Ellar Coltrane) and his sister (Lorelei Linklater), who are coping with the challenges of growing up with two divorced parents (Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke). An unprecedented work of commitment, BOYHOOD is also a universally resonant chronicle of the passage of time. (U.S., 164m, 2013, IFC Films, DCP)

Escobar: Paradise Lost

Absorbing and suspenseful … del Toro’s presence, like Brando’s in THE GODFATHER, looms over everything that happens.“Hollywood Reporter

In Columbia, Nick (Josh Hutcherson), a Canadian surfer boy, meets Maria (Claudia Traisac), an idealistic local girl who works with the poor. But this love story has a dark side: Maria’s wealthy, very protective uncle Pablo Escobar (Benicio Del Toro) is one of the world’s biggest narco-traffickers. Writer-director Andrea Di Stefano ingeniously mixes fact and fiction in this disturbing thriller, with Hutcherson (Jennifer Lawrence’s love interest in the Hunger Games movies) an ordinary guy stumbling headlong into terror and violence, holding his own opposite one of the most charismatic actors alive. And Del Toro, with his mixture of avuncular sweetness, self-mythologizing grandiosity and cobra-like cruelty, was born to play Escobar. (France-Spain-Belgium, 2014, 120m)

Still Life

“**** … Deeply moving and richly rewarding–a film with incredible heart. Marsan is brilliant, his is a finely embodied, indelible performance deserving of every accolade … A tonic for the soil.” –Empire

For years, John (Eddie Marsan, Sherlock Holmes) has been responsible for finding and informing the next of kin that their relations have passed away alone. When he is downsized, John takes the time to fully immerse himself in an exploration of someone else’s family in a journey filled with mischief, misadventure, love and regret, including for Kelly (Joanne Froggatt, Downton Abbey), a long-lost daughter of the deceased. Winner of four awards at Venice, including Best Film and Best Director (for Uberto Pasolini, producer of THE FULL MONTY) and awards at Reykjavik and Edinburgh, this is s a funny, resonant and universal celebration of dignity, community values and human connection, and ultimately, all that life is worth living for.

Son of a Gun

“Terrific, taut, tense, balls-to-the-wall action heist film … Tough-minded and gutsy at every turn.” –3aw

A rookie criminal (Brenton Thwaites) makes a deal with a pro (Ewan McGregor), and is pulled into a dangerous world of high-stakes crime, including a major heist. But who can he trust? This wild first feature from the Cannes-winning short film director Julius Avery is a wild genre film that signals a great new talent from Australia. (Australia, 2014, 108m, A24, DCP)

Songs Of The Sea

“One of the most blissfully beautiful animated films ever made … a gem beaming with awe-inspiring, heartwarming magic.” –IndieWire

In the latest hand-drawn animation from the creators of the Oscar-nominated SECRET OF KELLS, a girl—the last of the selkies, women in Irish and Scottish legends who transform from seals into people—escapes from her grandmother's home to journey to the sea. Such an adventure requires courage, and our hero tries to free fairy creatures trapped in the modern world. (Ireland, 2014, 93m, GKids)

The Match

Patrick Stewart is a treasure, and it’s a dynamite role for anyone.” –Playlist

A couple (Carla Gugino and Matthew Lillard) begin interviewing a former dancer (Patrick Stewart), seemingly for research on a dissertation about the dance landscape of 1960s New York City. But the questioning soon turns personal, and a mystery from the past begins to emerge. Adapting his Tony-nominated play, Stephen Belber weaves a dark, funny and poignant tale of responsibility and commitment. (U.S., 2014, 92m, IFC Films)

Duke of Burgundy

Never in all of cinema has the mashing of panties against a face been quite so fraught with genuine emotion.” –Guardian

Peter Strickland’s eagerly anticipated follow up to BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO pays homage to Euro-erotica from the 1970s with a sensitivity that makes the film sweet, bizarre and touching. Beginning at an all-woman’s conference on butterflies, the film shifts to the bedroom, where an intense relationship between two women (Sidse Babett Knudsen and Chiara d’Anna) unfolds, as they experiment with  role-playing, submission and domination. (U.K., 2014, 106m, IFC Films, digital)

redline1971 web


“A thrilling lesson about how authoritarianism can be curbed, sometimes, by one simple and well-targeted blow.” –PopMatters

It’s the great whodunit of the civil rights era. In 1971, eight citizens broke into a Pennsylvania FBI office, stole classified files, and began leaking them to the press. The files revealed the FBI’s deliberate and illegal actions to infiltrate and disrupt activist groups, and the Washington Post’s publication of a story helps launch an investigation into U.S.’s surveillance methods, and an FBI manhunt, as they search for the burglars. More than 40 years later, nobody knew who stole the files … until now. Johanna Hamilton’s gripping documentary features the first interviews with the fearless citizens who shone a spotlight on a then-corrupt institution. (U.S., 2014, 79m, DCP)

One of world cinema's foremost auteurs … Andrei  Zvyagintsev's filmmaking has always been superb, but he's never taken on the state of his nation in the way he does here … Not just masterful but also hugely important.” –Playlist

An auto repairman finds himself in conflict with a local politician, and his life begins spinning out of control. Andrei  Zvyagintsev's Cannes-winning satire about corruption and the other demons of modern Russia, is breathtakingly gorgeous, sharp-witted, surprisingly (and bitterly) funny and brilliantly told: a film for the ages.
