CABARET  

One of my favorite musicals ever. Liza and Fosse are a perfect match.

CITY OF GHOSTS

One of the most haunting and important films I saw at Sundance this year. No doubt, you'll be hearing about this film come Oscar® season.

QUEST

A beautiful and intimate portrait of a family over the course of ten years. The Rainey family will leave a mark on your life.

DINA

An honest and sweet look at love, intimacy and relationships. This is well-crafted storytelling at it's best.

DOLORES

Dolores Heurta is a feminine icon and now there's (finally) a film that recognizes her great impact on our society.

STEP

You'll fall in love with the girls on this Baltimore high-school step team. Their stories of how they try to become the first in their family to attend college are truly inspiring.

FOREVER PURE

A powerful documentary about hate speech, mob mentality and the Israeli and Palestinian struggle through a sports lens.

WHAT LIES UPSTREAM

Filmmaker Cullen Hoback has created a political thriller that uncovers the layers to what is systematically wrong with our drinking water.

WHOSE STREETS?

The essential and raw documentary of Ferguson from those that took to the streets.

THE FORCE

Director Pete Nicks delicately follows the Oakland Police Department over two years of corruption and scandal. Would make for an interesting pairing with Whose Streets?
