16:00 GIMME SHELTER (new) @ The Flicks 1 + 2
 
event pic

Based on a true story that centers on 16-year-old Agnes “Apple” Bailey (Vanessa Hudgens), Gimme Shelter uncovers the struggle for survival and the hope of redemption through the harsh realities of life on the streets.

As a pregnant teenager, Apple’s journey plummets her into a perilous struggle until finding salvation in a suburban shelter for homeless teens. With provisions of unprecedented comfort, a collective sisterhood connection and female empowerment, the shelter elevates Apple to break the shackles of her past and inspires her to embrace the future with clarity, maturity and hope not only for herself but her unborn child.

It is the galvanizing force of Vanessa Hudgens who catapults Gimme Shelter above the heartbreaking level of soap opera with a lancing effect. – NEW YORK OBSERVER

It’s not the easiest film to watch, and if it wasn’t based on a true story than much of the decision-making would be too infuriating to tolerate but Vanessa Hudgens in a breakthrough role based on real events was enough to get me. - IRISH TIMES

16:00 The End of Poverty (2008) @ Meta House
 

THE END OF POVERTY (2008, 106 min) asks if the true causes of poverty today stem from a deliberate orchestration since colonial times which has evolved into our modern system whereby wealthy nations exploit the poor. People living and fighting against poverty answer condemning colonialism and its consequences; land grab, exploitation of natural resources, debt, free markets, demand for corporate profits and the evolution of an economic system in in which 25% of the world's population consumes 85% of its wealth. Featuring Nobel Prize winner AmartyaSen and Joseph Stiglitz, authors/activist Susan George, Eric Toussaint, Bolivian Vice President Alvaro Garcia Linera and more.

18:30 Catherine Deneuve in ON MY WAY (new) @ The Flicks 1 + 2
 
event pic

Now in her early sixties, former beauty queen Bettie (Catherine Deneuve) finds herself jilted by her lover and left alone to deal with the financial problems facing her family’s restaurant.

What begins as a quick drive to clear her head turns into a full-fledged road trip, and along the way there are chance meetings, an ex-Miss France gala, renewed ties with her estranged daughter and grandson, and possibly, at the end of the road, love…

If you are in the mood for a top quality foreign movie that is miles away from your standard Hollywood fare, and where you get to watch one of the top actresses of this generation, by all means, don’t miss this one.

You can tell Deneuve is relishing the chance to play not a great beauty, not a national legend, but a simple, human basket case – a woman who has been her own worst enemy for so long that she’s ready to give up the fight.BOSTON GLOBE

19:00 Dangerous Acts: Belarus (2013) @ Meta House
 

Creating provocative theater carries great personal risks: emotional, financial and artistic. For the members of the Belarus Free Theatre, there are additional risks: censorship, imprisonment, and worse. Director Madeleine Sackler goes behind the scenes with the acclaimed troupe of imaginative and subversive performers who, in a desolate country choked by censorship and repression, defy Europe's last remaining dictatorship. When authorities forbid critical examinations of such topics as sexual orientation, alcoholism, suicide and politics, the Free Theatre responds by injecting these taboos into performances that are staged in underground. And yet, because of the power of their message, they receive critical acclaim overseas. DANGEROUS ACTS STARRING THE UNSTABLE ELEMENTS OF BELARUS (2013, 76 min) picks up the story in 2010 when the KGB is cracking down on dissenters, sixteen years after Belarus' President Alexander Lukashenko takes power during the breakup of the Soviet Union.

Now, as a dubious new presidential election looms, the KGB targets the Free Theatre's founders Nikolai Khalezin and Natalia Koliada who, along with their colleagues, find themselves torn between fighting for their art and for their and their families' safety.

Comprised of smuggled footage and uncensored interviews, DANGEROUS ACTS gives audiences a front row seat to a resistance movement as it unfolds both on the stage and in the streets.

As the members of the Free Theatre confront the choice of either repression at home or exile in the US and the UK, DANGEROUS ACTS reconfirms our belief that the power of art and hope can indeed change the world.

20:30 THE KILLING FIELDS (1984) @ The Flicks 2
 
event pic

Only screening at The Flicks 2 on Street 136.

Sydney Schanberg is a New York Times journalist covering the civil war in Cambodia. Together with local representative Dith Pran, they cover some of the tragedy and madness of the war, in Phnom Penh.

When the American forces leave, Dith Pran sends his family with them, but stays behind himself to help Schanberg cover the event. As an American, Schanberg won't have any trouble leaving the country, but the situation is different for Pran; he's a local, and the Khmer Rouge are moving in.

The Killing Fields is a suspenseful and exhilarating experience, a journey through an apocalyptic landscape that features one shocking image after another. Watch, and you'll see why the film is so acclaimed and a must-see for everybody in Cambodia; locals as visitors.
