ANOTHER PERIOD

  • Release Year: 2017
  • Runtime: 28 minutes
  • Directed By: Jeremy Koner
  • Country: USA
Another Period tells the incredible story of the Bellacourt sisters, Lillian and Beatrice (played by Leggero and Lindhome). Defined by their family’s wealth, they care only about becoming super famous — which is a lot harder in 1902. The show follows the insanely decadent and outrageous life of the Bellacourt coterie. Before others claimed their fame, they were the one American family who epitomized all that was spoiled, shameless and stupid. The Bellacourts have more servants than relatives and days filled with money, sex, drugs…and more money.

After the episode: A conversation with creators, writers, and stars Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, and cast members Paget Brewster and Brett Gelman. Moderated by Hollywood Editor for New York Magazine and Vulture, Stacey Wilson Hunt. |Read More

ART AND CRAFT

  • Release Year: 2014
  • Runtime: 89 minutes
  • Directed By: Sam Cullman and Jennifer Grausman
  • Country: USA
Mark Landis is one of the most prolific and notorious "artists" of the century, an expert forger who has duped and befuddled curators across the nation. Many have dedicated years tracking his escapades with one burning question: “Why?” Framed as a cat-and-mouse chase between Landis and those he has hoodwinked, Art and Craft paints a richly complicated portrait of mental illness, skewed philanthropy, and the desire to feel connected. |Read More

AWOL

  • Runtime: 82 minutes
  • Directed By: Deb Shoval
  • Country: USA
Joey is a young woman in search of direction in her small town. A visit to an army recruiting office appears to provide a path, but when she meets and falls in love with Rayna that path diverges in ways that neither woman anticipates. Building on the award-winning short of the same name, director Deb Shoval crafts a clear-eyed love story, and an impressive feature film debut. |Read More

Badhair web 1

BAD HAIR

Junior, a nine-year-old living in Caracas, wants nothing more than to straighten his unruly hair—a fixation that stirs homophobic panic in his overtaxed mother. Each effort Junior makes to alter his appearance and gain his mother’s love is brushed off with abrasive avoidance until he’s ultimately faced with a heartbreaking decision. With a painfully tender performance by Samuel Lange, Bad Hair captures the search for identity as it clashes with intolerance. |Read More
