ROCKS IN MY POCKETS
Multiple screenings October 1 - 9, 2014
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
www.mbcinema.com
Rocks In My Pockets is a story of mystery and redemption. The film is based on true events involving the women of my family, including myself, and our battles with madness. It raises questions of how much family genetics determine who we are and if it is possible to outsmart one's own DNA. The film is packed with visual metaphors, surreal images and my twisted sense of humor. It is an animated tale full of art, women, strange daring stories, Latvian accents, history, nature, adventure and more. -Director Signe Baumane (In English)

www.mbcinema.com
"In Tim Sutton's second feature, Memphis, the musician Willis Earl Beal plays a blues singer of the same name, who is facing a devastating artistic crisis--composing and performing block. His desperate efforts at self-healing take him on a spiritual journey through the city of the title as he encounters friends, confidants, and religious counselor's dispensing hard-earned wisdom. Memphis itself plays a leading role in the film, by way of richly textured, sunlight-imbued images of streets and houses, churches and roads. With his loamy mosaic of drifting moods and troubled memories, Sutton offers a pictorial translation of the blues, a vision of an American classicism sheltered by the urban landscape's mystical embrace." -Richard Brody, The New Yorker

Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette and Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha. BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before.

Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor

London-based director Joanna Hogg, who Martin Scorsese referred to as "a uniquely gifted filmmaker", is a pioneer of the "New British Realism", starting with Unrelated, her first feature: Anna (Katheryn Worth) is the architypal British middle class woman, on a mission to escape her undisclosed relationship woes and other problems, to a rented villa in Tuscany with friends. The trip becomes a typically divisional experience where the "olds" are meant to socialize separately from the "youngs", as is traditional, but Anna takes the risk of being experimental. As a result she makes discoveries about her friends and herself that change the course of all involved.

Andrew Off the highway, across from the railroad track, you'll find Andrew, 13, working on his bike, talking dreams with his dad or practicing dance moves with his twin sister. He's just like a lot of American kids, except that his days are also about survival. Harley, 15, lives with his grandma now, and eight other members of his extended family, because his mom is in prison. He misses her deeply - but he's still the first guy in the room to crack a joke and make you laugh when you least expect it. Appachey, 12, dreams of becoming an art teacher in China and finds solace in skateboards - and, despite his smarts, has had to repeat the 6th grade, which doesn't fix all the things that are broken in his life.

Cinephile's Choice "Best of Venice" STRAY DOGS
Multiple screenings October 11 - 20, 2014
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
www.mbcinema.com
In the newest film from Tsai Ming-liang, a single father (Tsai mainstay Lee Kang-sheng) makes his meager living holding up an advertising placard on a traffic island in the middle of a busy highway. His children (Lu Yi-ching and Li Yi-cheng) wait out their days in supermarkets before they eat with their father and go to sleep in an abandoned building. As the father starts to come apart, a woman in the supermarket (Chen Shiang-chyi, also a Tsai regular) takes the children under her wing. There are real stray dogs to be fed in Tsai’s everyday apocalypse, but the title also refers to its principal characters, living the cruelest of existences on the ragged edges of the modern world. Stray Dogs is many things at once: minimal in its narrative content and syntax, as visually powerful as it is emotionally overwhelming, and bracingly pure in both its anger and its compassion. One of the finest works of an extraordinary artist. -New York Film Festival

MBC GREAT DIRECTORS SERIES: The films of Joanna Hogg ARCHIPELAGO
Thursday, October 16, 9:00 p.m.
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
www.mbcinema.com
As one of the New Emerging Artists chosen by the 51st New York Film Festival, this "bold, dynamic new artist" was introduced to US audiences. Coinciding with the 2014 release of her newest film Exhibition, her previous works Unrelated and Archipelago have become available, acclaimed in Britain and film festivals for their realistic site-specific depictions of the complexities of the middle class. Archipelago is Johanna Hogg's second feature film, a quietly devastating portrayal of a family in emotional crisis, and it resonates with many middle class families that have gone on vacation together. Edward (Tom Hiddleston) is preparing to leave for a year of voluntary service in Africa. His mother Patricia (Kate Fahy) and his sister Cynthia (Lydia Leonard) decide to gather the family together in Sicily as a farewell trip to say goodbye to Edward. Hired cook Rose (Amy Lloyd) and painting teacher Christopher (Christopher Baker, playing himself), though brought in to help, only serve to bring the family's anxieties into sharper focus. When Edward's father is delayed, the unspoken forces of absence and loss bring the family's buried anger and repressed tension to the surface.

The new film by Mathieu Almaric (Actor and Best Director winner at Cannes 2012), is a seductive hommage to the classic works of Claude Chabrol and early Alain Resnais. A man and a woman, secretly in love, are alone in a room. They desire each other, want each other, and even bite each other. In the afterglow, they share a few sweet nothings. At least the man seemed to believe they were nothing. Now under investigation by the police and the courts, Julien fails to find the words. "Life is different when one lives it and peels it off afterwards". What happened? What is he accused of?

A marine biologist and his two assistants are experimenting on Portugeuse men-of-war "on the edge of the Everglades". One of the assistants, Egon, has secret plans in a hidden grotto to overcome his complexes made more intense by his disfigured face, exaggerated by a visiting group of teenagers invited by the doctor's daughter who Egon is in love with. Egon's experimenting leads to revenge and eventual terrifyingly hilarious chaos…but all he really wanted was a girlfriend.
