Winner of multiple 2014 Cannes Film Festival Awards (including the coveted Critics' Week Grand Prix), Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy's The Tribe is an undeniably original and intense feature debut set in the insular world of a Ukranian high school for the Deaf.

With no friends and living on welfare, they feed their curiosity, creativity, and imagination with film, which allows them to escape from their feelings of isolation and loneliness. Everything changes when one of the brothers escapes, and the power dynamics in the house are transformed. The Wolfpack must learn how to integrate into society without disbanding the brotherhood.

A film poem inspired by the Peruvian poet César Vallejo. A story about our need for love, our confusion, greatness and smallness and, most of all, our vulnerability.

THE APU TRILOGY I: PATHER PANCHALI Song of the Little Road
ultiple screenings July 17 - 19, 2015
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
www.mbcinema.com
The release in 1955 of Satyajit Ray's debut, Pather Panchali, introduced to the world an eloquent and important new cinematic voice. A depiction of rural Bengali life in a style inspired by Italian neorealism, this naturalistic but poetic evocation of a number of years in the life of a family introduces us to both little Apu and, just as essentially, the women who will help shape him: his independent older sister, Durga; his harried mother, Sarbajaya, who, with her husband often away, must hold the family together; and his kindly and mischievous elderly "auntie," Indir-vivid, multifaceted characters all. (In Bengali with English subtitles)

THE APU TRILOGY II: APARAJITO The Unvanquished
Multiple screenings July 18 - 21, 2015
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
www.mbcinema.com
Aparajito picks up where the first film leaves off, with Apu and his family having moved away from the country to live in the bustling holy city of Varanasi (then known as Benares). As Apu progresses from wide-eyed child to intellectually curious teenager, eventually studying in Kolkata, we witness his academic and moral education, as well as the growing complexity of his relationship with his mother. This tenderly expressive, often heart-wrenching film, which won three top prizes at the Venice Film Festival, including the Golden Lion, not only extends but also spiritually deepens the tale of Apu. (In Bengali with English subtitles)

THE APU TRILOGY III: APUR SANSAR The World of Apu
Multiple screenings July 18 - 22, 2015
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
www.mbcinema.com
This extraordinary final chapter brings our protagonist's journey full circle. Apu is now in his early twenties, out of college, and hoping to live as a writer. Alongside his professional ambitions, the film charts his romantic awakening, which occurs as the result of a most unlikely turn of events, and his eventual, fraught fatherhood. Featuring soon to be Ray regulars Soumitra Chatterjee and Sharmila Tagore in star-making performances, and demonstrating Ray's ever-more-impressive skills as a crafter of pure cinematic imagery, Apur Sansar is a breathtaking conclusion to this monumental trilogy. (Bengali with English subtitles)

YOU, THE LIVING
Wednesday, July 22, 7:00 p.m.
Miami Beach Cinematheque, 1130 Washington Avenue, First Floor
www.mbcinema.com
You, The Living is about the human being, about her greatness and her miserableness, her joy and sorrow, her self-confidence and anxiety. A being at whom we want to laugh and also cry for. It is simply a tragic comedy or a comic tragedy about us. - Roy Andersson (Director) (In Swedish with English Subtitles).

Anthony & Cleopatra (Shakespeare's Globe)
Sunday, July 26, 12:00 p.m.
O Cinema Miami Beach, 500 71st Street

Irrational Man
Opens July 31, 2015
O Cinema Miami Beach, 500 71st Street
www.o-cinema.org
When a burned-out, brilliant professor – one who believes in lessons from life rather than textbooks – takes a job at a small college, everyone there is abuzz. He becomes involved with a teacher as well as a precocious student, but it takes a dramatic, existential act to turn his life around and make him see the world through a much rosier and more positive perspective.
