Event Description

Fort Greene

Set in the heart of a rapidly-gentrifying Brooklyn neighborhood, Fort Greene chronicles the events surrounding a mysterious shoplifting incident at a high-end clothing store two doors down from Ralph's bodega, the unofficial neighborhood Town Square.


Three immigrant window cleaners risk their lives every day rappelling down some of Chicago's tallest sky-scrapers. Paraiso reveals the danger of their job and what they see on the way down.


New York filmmaker Sarah Enid Hagey's lovely short-subject documentary, "Blackbird" is about some of the wild theories that gripped Beebe, AK following the deaths of thousands of blackbirds there on New Year's Eve 2011.

We Will Live Again

We Will Live Again is a look at the unusual and extraordinary operations of the Cryonics Institute. The film follows Ben Best and Andy Zawacki, the caretakers of this 'mom and pop style' warehouse, as they maintain the 99 deceased human bodies stored at below freezing temperatures in cryopreservation. The Institute and the Cryonics Movement were founded by Robert Ettinger, who in his nineties has long retired from running the faculty, but still lives nearby, self-publishing books on cryonics, awaiting the end of this life and eagerly anticipating his next.

Between Color & I

Marti Domination in the Life of Dreams

A surrealist documentary, Marti Domination in the Life of Dreams is a conversation about dreams and films with Marti Domination (star of Matthew Barney's Cremaster cycle). In performative demonstration, Marti then steps into a plane where dreams and films intertwine and bids the viewer a loving farewell.
