A searing look at a day in the life of an assistant to a powerful executive. As Jane follows her daily routine, she grows increasingly aware of the insidious abuse that threatens every aspect of her position.
The iconic Merce Cunningham and the last generation of his dance company is stunningly profiled in Alla Kovgan's 3D documentary, through recreations of his landmark works and archival footage of Cunningham, John Cage, and Robert Rauschenberg.
Consummate con man Roy Courtnay has set his sights on his latest mark: the recently widowed Betty McLeish, worth millions. But this time, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes.
Shown at the 2019 AFI Festival: Stunning and compelling
"The Song of Names" is a film with Clive Owen and Tim Roth elegantly directed by Francois Girard. It tells the story of two young boys who develop a friendship over a shared love of music. Young Polish violin prodigy Dovidl Rapoport comes to live with the family of Martin Simmonds in the days preceding the German bombings of London, England during WWII.
The story continues showing different periods of Dovidl and Martin's lives from adolescence to mature adulthood. With the excellent acting, screenplay by Jeffrey Caine and Girard's conscientious direction, the film is a gift to the viewing public!
