Synopsis (Oscilloscope )
"In the heart of the Tibetan highlands, multi-award-winning nature photographer Vincent Munier guides writer Sylvain Tesson on his quest to document the infamously elusive snow leopard. Munier introduces Tesson to the subtle art of waiting from a blind spot, tracking animals, and finding the patience to catch sight of the beasts. Through their journey in the Tibetan peaks, inhabited by invisible presences, the two men ponder humankind’s place amongst the magnificent creatures and glorious landscapes they encounter along the way."

Synopsis (A24)
"The audacious new film from writer-director Sean Baker (THE FLORIDA PROJECT and TANGERINE), starring Simon Rex in a magnetic, live-wire performance, RED ROCKET is a darkly funny and humane portrait of a uniquely American hustler and a hometown that barely tolerates him." The Chicago Tribune says this film is "Raunchy, restless, cinematically vital..."

Synopsis (MGM/UA)
"LICORICE PIZZA is the story of Alana Kane and Gary Valentine growing up, running around and falling in love in the San Fernando Valley, 1973. Written and Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, the film tracks the treacherous navigation of first love." Starring Alana Haim (from the band Haim) and a fantastic first film performance from Cooper Hoffman (son of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman), this film could launch both young people into strong film careers. (On a side note, Paul Thomas Anderson directed Cooper's father in MAGNOLIA, PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE and THE MASTER...so there's something extra special about this being his first film.) CLOSED CAPTION DEVICES AVAILABLE FOR THIS FILM. NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION DEVICES AVAILABLE FOR THIS FILM. HEARING ASSISTANCE DEVICES AVIALABLE FOR THIS FILM.

Synopsis (Sony Classics)
Don't miss Pedro Almodovar's gorgeous new film on the big screen! "Two women, Janis and Ana, coincide in a hospital room where they are going to give birth. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, doesn’t regret it and she is exultant. The other, Ana, an adolescent, is scared, repentant and traumatized. Janis tries to encourage her while they move like sleepwalkers along the hospital corridors. The few words they exchange in these hours will create a very close link between the two, which by chance develops and complicates, and changes their lives in a decisive way." EMPIRE writes, "Almodóvar juggles comedy and drama to terrifically entertaining ends, aided by a tip-top Penélope Cruz. It's hard to think of a more exciting actor-director partnership working today."

Synopsis (Neon Releasing)
Rated "98% Fresh" - "FLEE tells the story of Amin Nawabi as he grapples with a painful secret he has kept hidden for 20 years, one that threatens to derail the life he has built for himself and his soon to be husband. Recounted mostly through animation to director Jonas Poher Rasmussen, he tells for the first time the story of his extraordinary journey as a child refugee from Afghanistan." Don't miss this gorgeous documentary that is certain to be an Academy Award contender this year! ABC News says, "The year's most inventive animated adventure mixes graphic design with documentary realism and puts hallucinatory brilliance at the service of understanding the continuing psychic damage of war. You'll never forget it."

Synopsis (Janus Films)
Winner of multiple awards around the world, DRIVE MY CAR will almost certainly be a "Best Picture" contender in this year's Academy Awards. "Two years after his wife’s unexpected death, Yusuke Kafuku (Hidetoshi Nishijima), a renowned stage actor and director, receives an offer to direct a production of Uncle Vanya at a theater festival in Hiroshima. There, he meets Misaki Watari (Toko Miura), a taciturn young woman assigned by the festival to chauffeur him in his beloved red Saab 900. As the production’s premiere approaches, tensions mount amongst the cast and crew, not least between Yusuke and Koji Takatsuki, a handsome TV star who shares an unwelcome connection to Yusuke’s late wife. Forced to confront painful truths raised from his past, Yusuke begins - with the help of his driver – to face the haunting mysteries his wife left behind. Adapted from Haruki Murakami’s short story, Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s DRIVE MY CAR is a haunting road movie traveling a path of love, loss, acceptance, and peace."

Synopsis (Filmmaker)
We're delighted to bring JULIA REICHERT: 50 YEARS IN FILM to Julia's hometown. Our four initial screenings in 2021 have wrapped up, but we will look to add more films in 2022...so stay tuned tot this site for more details in the future. The retrospective, which was curated and organized by the Wexner Center for the Arts, premiered at the Museum of Modern Art in May 2019. The film series then traveled to Los Angeles, Houston, Minneapolis, Portland, Cleveland, Louisville and Madison before the pandemic shut everything down. Reichert said, “It means so much to me to share these films again with Dayton audiences, many who weren’t even born yet when these films came out.”
