Iris – Featurette

  Iris – Featurette
IRIS pairs legendary 87-year-old documentarian Albert Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how, even in Iris’ dotage, a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. IRIS portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, artand people are life’s sustenance and reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middle-class Queens upbringing during the Great Depression. “Ifeel lucky to be working. If you’re lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows.”
Directed by: Albert Maysles

  The Apu Trilogy: Pather Panchali; Aparajito; Apur Sansar – Trailer
Two decades after its original negatives were burned in a fire, Satyajit Ray’s breathtaking milestone of world cinema rises from the ashes in a meticulously reconstructed new 4K restoration. The Apu Trilogy brought India into the golden age of international art-house film, following one indelible character, a free-spirited child in rural Bengal who matures into an adolescent urban student and finally a sensitive man of the world. These delicate masterworks—Pather Panchali (Song of the Little Road), Aparajito (The Unvanquished),and Apur Sansar (The World of Apu)—based on two books by Bibhutibhusan Banerjee—were shot over the course of five years, and each stands on its own as a tender, visually radiant journey. They are among the most achingly beautiful, richly humane movies ever made—essential works for any film lover.
Directed by: Satyajit Ray
Starring: Kanu Banerjee, Karuna Banerjee, Subir Banerjee, Uma Das Gupta, Indir Thakrun (“Auntie”) Chunibala Devi, Pinaki Sengupta, Smaran Ghosal, Soumitra Chatterjee, Sharmila Tagore

Helicopter Mom – Clip

  Helicopter Mom – Clip
Even with good intentions and an abundance of love, parents can sometimes become… smothering. Such is the case with Maggie (a hilarious Nia Vardalos), who decides that she would not only accept her son Lloyd (Jason Dolley) as gay, she would encourage it. In fact, Maggie becomes so convinced that Lloyd is indeed gay that she “outs” him to his entire high school. Like any good “helicopter mom,” Maggie hovers over every aspect of her son’s life. She takes control of his social life, sets him up on dates with boys whom she has approved, and files for a gay student college scholarship. There’s just one wrench in her grand plans: Lloyd doesn’t even know whether he’s gay or not—and he’s just asked a cute girl to prom (Skyler Samuels). In the end, will Maggie be willing to accept her son for who he is—or just who she thinks he is?
