“The best film at Sundance.” –Daily Beast
Frank (Michael Fassbender), an unstable yet charismatic musical savant, at all times wears a large, round, fake crudely painted head. Clara (Maggie Gyllenhaal) is the antithesis of all things mainstream. With their drummer, bassist and keyboard player, this makeshift but brilliant band go in search of success, an unlikely proposition, and find adventure. Lenny Abrahamson’s tale, strangely enough, is based on a true story. (Ireland, 2014, 95m, DCP, Magnolia Pictures)
“An incredibly assured directorial debut … a smart, crowd-pleasing entertainment … spectacular performances from Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss.” –Variety
Novelist Charlie McDowell makes a big splash with his first film, following a couple (Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss) who, on the verge of splitting up, escape to a beautiful vacation house to try and reconcile. What happens next … is worth seeing, rather than reading about! Funny, smart, deep, surprising, this is a romantic comedy unlike any before. (U.S., 2014, 90m, DCP, Radius-TWC) HELD OVER THIS WEEKEND ONLY!!!
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)

Miguel Arzabe's work is an intimate exploration of deep influences arising from his Bolivian heritage, his ancestors, and their legends. El otoño mío es tu primavera (my autumn is your spring) combines new video and painting in an installation that references the spatial distance, the subjective understanding, and the unrelenting passage of time that exists between two homes in different hemispheres.
On two occasions, CCA will screen two new films by Miguel Arzabe. Opening night: March 15, 6-8pm in the CCA Studio
April 21, 4pm: Join Miguel and his father as they discuss the process of making Leyendas del Altiplano, and share additional stories, legends, and family tales.
Full Moon Over Galisteo, 2012, is a quiet meditation on the struggle for connection and understanding. Filmed in the desert outside the village of Galisteo, home to Lucy Lippard, author of the influential compilation on conceptual art "The Dematerialization of the Art Object," this piece is an homage to new forms of art-making.
Leyendas del Altiplano, 2013, is a personal reinterpretation of an indigenous legend told to the artist's grandfather while working as a teacher in the Altiplano in the 1940s. He wrote and illustrated a compilation of these legends which provide the basis for this project. Featuring contributions from the artist's extended family and illustrations and photographs from Bolivian books, this short film tells the story of mountain gods who are tricked into bloody war over a beautiful woman.
