Finding Fela

October 20, 2014
SIFF Film Center

Master documentarian Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks) looks at the life, music, and social and political impact of Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, who was immortalized in the Brodway hit "Fela!".

After performing at SIFF Cinema in March of this year, musician James Whetzel headed to Kickstarter and successfully raised the funds for a recorded version of his unique and inspiring original soundtrack for one of the most innovative and influential films of the silent era, Dziga Vertov's 1929 masterpiece The Man With a Movie Camera. He returns for this special encore presentation. 

Two Days, One Night

October 23

French Cinema Now Opening Night Film and Party! The Dardenne brothers deliver again. Never afraid to tackle difficult subject matter, this time around the celebrated Belgian filmmakers take on the European economic crisis. Two Days, One Night tells the story of Sandra (Marion Cotillard), a working-class mother who loses her job, but who has a fighting chance — and one weekend — to get it back.

Paramahansa Yogananda is considered the “Father of Yoga in the West,” having brought the ancient practice to America in the 1920s. His lasting impact comes alive through archival footage and the words of seekers, philosophers, and enthusiasts.

Actor Michel Hazanavicius scheduled to attend

In the People’s Democratic Republic of Bubunne, it's the women who are in power, who give the orders and who fight the wars, while the men wear veils and look after the home. 

Join us for a spectacular evening with French cinema and Academy Award® Winning luminaries Michel Hazanavicius and Bérénice Bejo.
