Filmed over twelve years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. 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. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past, and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking of our own journey.

"Cinephile's Choice" NORTE, THE END OF HISTORY
Wednesday, September 3, 7:00 p.m.
Sunday, September 7, 12:30 p.m.
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
Lav Diaz' epic reimagining of Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment is both an intimate human drama and a cosmic treatise on the origin of evil. Unfolding across the sun drenched fields and dark city streets of the Filipino island of Luzon, Norte, The End of History is a tale of murder, hate and hope from one of the world's most uncompromising cinematic visionaries. An embittered law student commits a brutal double murder; a family man takes the fall and is forced into a harsh prison sentence; a mother and her two children wander the countryside looking for some kind of redemption. (In Tagalog and English with English subtitles)

"Masters of Jewish Cinema Series" SIDNEY LUMET: THE DOG & DOG DAY AFTERNOON
Thursday, September 4, 7:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
THE DOG This dog is no ordinary dog, he's John Wojtowicz whose attempted robbery of a Brooklyn bank to finance his male lover's sex-reassignment surgery earned him a week in the media glare and 5 years of anonymity in a Federal penitentiary. With the 1975 release of Dog Day Afternoon and thanks to Al Pacino's hugely entertaining performance, the mouthy urban renegade who chanted Attica! Attica! and faced down an entire police force was embraced by an angry new generation of disenfranchised, a working class hero to the downwardly mobile was born. DOG DAY AFTERNOON Still the standard by which many New York movies are compared, Lumet's terrific telling of a true-story Brooklyn bank robbery gone way out of hand is just as captivating as ever. In an Oscar nominated role, Al Pacino is winning as Sonny, the young man leading the job to fund his girlfriend's sex-change operation (Chris Sarandon, also Oscar nominated) and becoming a media sensation in the process. With John Cazale and Charles Durning lending first-rate supporting performances.

Multiple screenings September 5 - 18, 2014
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
One of the major French filmmakers of the post-New Wave, Philippe Garrel has belatedly been recognized as a master in America, and Jealousy may be his most accessible film in nearly 50 years of filmmaking. Shot in lustrous, widescreen black and white by the great Willy Kurant (Masculin Feminin), the film opens with a man leaving his wife and daughter and, in a series of brief conversations, observed gestures, chance encounters and impulsive acts, tells the story of the relationships that flounder and thrive in the wake of this decision. The director casts his son and frequent star Louis Garrel as the husband who moves into a garret apartment with his actress girlfriend (Anna Mouglalis) and struggles with fidelity and the temptation to give up their art for an easier life. Shot with Garrel?s celebrated sensitivity and attention to faces, bodies, hands and the intricacies of the human heart, Jealousy is an especially intimate, deeply poignant and never less than enthralling tale of love, temptation and betrayal. (In French with English subtitles)

The iconic British rock band Duran Duran will take over US movie theaters on Wednesday, September 10th for a one-night-only showing of the film Duran Duran: Unstaged. This movie showcases the band's concert at the Mayan Theatre in Los Angeles, which was part of the American Express Unstaged concert series that celebrated the band's All You Need Is Now album and world tour. The film was directed by award-winning filmmaker David Lynch (Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive). Lynch has captured the band's performance in a ground-breaking, creative way that will provide fans with a visually stunning in-theater viewing experience. When it was originally filmed, the director layered images that he had created in advance of the show (live action, animation, special effects, etc.) on top of the band's performance footage as it was being filmed live. The technique, created an ocular event unlike anything ever seen before.

Thursday, September 11, 6:30 p.m.
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
In a stunning, Oscar-nominated performance, Rod Steiger stars as a German-Jewish Holocaust survivor who operates a small East Harlempawnshop, where his daily interactions with the desperate clientele further darken his already jaundiced view of humanity. As he engages in turf warfare with the local pimp (Brock Peters) who uses the shop as a front, Steiger's haunted memories come flooding back in staccato bursts, rendered by Lumet and editor Ralph Rosenblum in a subliminal style unprecedented in mainstream movies of the time.

"Masters of Jewish Cinema Series" SIDNEY LUMET: NETWORK
Thursday, September 18, 7:00 p.m.
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
Likely, Lumet's best known work and arguably his greatest achievement. Upon learning that he's to be fired due to his station's declining popularity, an iconic evening news anchor's sudden transformation into a ranting demagogue turns the station into a carnival of angry populism, ridiculous radicalism, and, of course, sky-high ratings. The film earned Oscars for scriptwriter Paddy Chayefsky and actors Peter Finch, Faye Dunaway and Beatrice Straight.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker James Franco, and based on the chilling novel by Cormac McCarthy (No Country For Old Men), Child of God tells the provocative story of Lester Ballad (Scott Haze, who spent four months living in an isolated cabin and caves in rural Tennessee to prepare for the role), a dispossessed, violent man, attempting to exist outside the social order. Consecutively deprived of parents and housing and driven by famished loneliness, Ballard descends literally and figuratively to the level of a cave dweller as he falls deeper into crime and degradation. Set in a small town in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Tennessee in the 1960s, Child of God is structured in three segments with each segment describing Ballad?s ever-growing isolation of from society and social mores.

Multiple Screenings September 25 - 28, 2014
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
"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

Mondays at the Museum Series: Will the Circle be Unbroken?
Monday, September 29, 7:00 p.m.
Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU, 301 Washington Avenue
Lecture by Dr. Andrew Gottlieb. Even the first of the Hebrews feared they would be the last. Beginning with Abraham and Sara's apprehension that they would not conceive a child and pass on their heritage l'dor v'dor, from one generation to the next, each successive generation of the Jewish people has also feared that it would be the last. These fears have been built on a history of exile, pogrom, Holocaust and many other threats, yet the Jewish people have endured these trials over thousands of years. Reeling from the recent Religion & Public Life Project (Pew, 2013), Jewish America is following in this tradition of anxiety over its survival. Without dismissing these veritable and alarming concerns, this lecture will examine them in the context of Jewish American history over the previous century, and discuss inspiring new trends that will balance this concern with a dose of optimism. $5 JMOF-FIU Members; $10 Non- Members; Free for Students with valid ID.
