"A divorced woman in her late 50s recaptures her life in Sebastian Lelio's pitch-perfect, terrifically written Gloria. Were this an American film, the situation of a middle-aged woman refusing to give in to loneliness would likely be fashioned into a comedy starring Meryl Streep or Maggie Smith, but Lelio refuses to adopt the industry's ageist slant, presenting a woman (magnificently played by Paulina Garcia) of undisguised sexuality seeking to be the center of life for the man she loves." Jay Weissberg, Variety.

110 minutes; R; Spanish with English subtitles



Tim's Vermeer

March 14-16

Tim Jenison, a Texas-based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in art: How did 17th-century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (Girl with a Pearl Earring, c. 1665) manage to paint so photo-realistically 150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory is as extraordinary as what he discovers.

80 minutes; PG-13



If You Build It

Friday 6 and 8 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday noon, 2 pm, and 4 pm


From the director of Wordplay and I.O.U.S.A. comes a captivating look at a radically innovative approach to education. If You Build It follows designer-activists Emily Pilloton and Matthew Miller to rural Bertie County, the poorest in North Carolina, where they work with local high school students to help transform both their community and their lives.

85 minutes

Friday 6 and 8:30 pm; Saturday 5 pm; Sunday 11:30 am, 2 and 4:30 pm


"Visitors doesn't add up to one grand epiphany, but an intermittent cluster of small ones, and as such it's an emotional and sensual pleasure." Bill Weber, Slant Magazine.
Director Godfrey Reggio reveals humanity's trance-like relationship with technology, which, when commandeered by extreme emotional states, produces massive effects far beyond the human species. Thirty years after Koyaanisqatsi,Reggio-with the support of Philip Glass and Jon Kane-once again leapfrogs over earth-bound filmmakers and creates another stunning black and white, wordless portrait of modern life.

87 minutes
