Sagrada: Mystery of Creation

“**** … A philosophical meditation on art, design and time. Beautiful. 4 Stars." –Tribune de Genève
They broke ground in 1882; they are about halfway through. The building is the  Sagrada Família in Barcelona, designed by the Antoni Gaudí, continues to advance, thanks to an international army of workers—including one sculptor who has been at it for 30 years— and history with highs and lows. More than any building, the Sagrada Familia encourages questions about architecture, creativity and process. (Germany, Switzerland, 2012, 89 mins, DCP)

The Green Prince

“Four stars … Terrific. As gripping as any high-concept Hollywood thriller.” –The Guardian
They should have been sworn enemies. But after the son of a Hamas leader became an informer for the Israelis, the Israeli secret ops agent who he worked with became a trusted friend. Born in the troubled Occupied Territories, Mosab Hassan Yousef’s fervor against Israel was unquestionable, ultimately landing him in prison. But he began to see Hamas as a problem that escalated violence, not a solution, and agreed to spy on the Hamas elite for over a decade. Nadav Schirman’s mind-blowing true story shows how he risked exposure and certain death while grappling with the perception that he had betrayed his own family and people, and how relationship with Gonen Ben Yitzhak, the Israeli secret agent, became one of unbreakable loyalty. (Germany-U.K.-Israel, 2014, 95m, DCP, Music Box Films)

I Am Eleven

Irresistible. The kids are charming, funny, goofy and absurdly serious.” –Financial Review
Do you remember when you were 11?  Australian filmmaker Genevieve Bailey travelled the world for six years talking with 11-year-olds to compose this insightful, funny and moving portrait of childhood. From an orphanage in India to a single-parent household in inner-city Melbourne, to bathing with elephants in Thailand, I AM ELEVEN explores the lives and thoughts of children from all around the world. It weaves together deeply personal and at times hilarious portraits of what it means to stand on the cusp between childhood and adolescence, that fleeting moment when childish naiveté has faded, yet teenaged self-consciousness has not yet taken hold. These young minds, still unguarded and remarkably honest, offer a powerful insight into the future of our world. (Australia, 2014, 98m, DCP)

Boyhood

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)
