Beyond the Visible: Hilma af Klint
Halina Dyrschka, Germany, 2020
The subject of a 2018 awe-inspiring retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term even existed. This course-correcting documentary describes not only the life and craft of af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterization and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value.

Flaming Ears
A. Hans Scheirl, Dietmar Schipek & Ursula Puerrer, Austria, 1992
This pop sci-fi lesbian extravaganza set in the year 2700 in the fictional burned-out city of Asche follows the tangled lives of three women. Truly underground and shot on Super 8, "Flaming Ears" is original for its playful disruption of narrative conventions, its witty approach to film genre, and its punk visual splendor.

Premiering on March 14


T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets
Sophie Fiennes, UK, 2023
Ralph Fiennes delivers an exquisite performance of T. S. Eliot's poetic masterpiece. During the pandemic, the Oscar nominee set himself the challenge of committing “Four Quartets” to memory, and in 2021 he brought it to the London stage. Written by the Nobel Prize winner in the shadow of WWII, this searching examination of who – and what – we are bears a powerful relevance to our present day.

Anna Biller, USA, 2008
Viva is a cult retro spectacle about a bored 1970s housewife who gets sucked into the sexual revolution. Abandoned by her perfect Ken-doll husband, Barbi (writer/director Anna Biller, The Love Witch) is dragged into trouble by her girlfriend, who spouts women's lib as she gets Barbi to discard her bra and go out on the town.

Premiering on March 21


Fiddler's Journey to the Big Screen
Daniel Raim, USA, 2022
Narrated by Jeff Goldblum and directed by Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Daniel Raim, this documentary captures the humor and drama of director Norman Jewison's quest to recreate the lost world of Jewish life in Tsarist Russia and re-envision the beloved stage hit Fiddler on the Roof as a wide-screen epic.

The Ballad of Little Jo
Maggie Greenwald, USA, 1993
In this gorgeously crafted film inspired by a true story, acclaimed writer-director Maggie Greenwald adds a modern twist to the classic western. Suzy Amis stars as Josephine, a society girl who disguises herself as a boy after leaving her home in disgrace. As Little Jo, she confronts all the dangers of the Wild West and risks everything by falling in love with the man who discovers her secret.

Premiering on March 28


Eden and After
Alain Robbe-Grillet, Tunisia/France, 1975
From the darkly erotic imagination of Alain Robbe-Grillet (Trans-Europe-Express) comes Eden and After, a dreamlike fable in which a group of decadent French students are drawn into the psychological and sexual games of a mysterious Dutchman. Once they imbibe his "fear powder," the students experience a series of hallucinatory episodes.


Hold Me Tight
Mathieu Amalric, France, 2022
Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread) gives another riveting performance as Clarisse, a woman on the run from her family for mysterious reasons in Mathieu Amalric’s most ambitious directorial outing to date. This virtuosic, daringly fluid portrait of a woman in crisis alternates between Clarisse’s adventures on the road and scenes of her abandoned husband as he struggles to take care of their children.
