Wildness
    Friday March 9, 2012 8:30pm - 9:44pm @ Alamo Lamar B (1120 South Lamar Blvd)

    Rooted in the tropical underground of Los Angeles nightlife, "Wildness" is a portrait of the Silver Platter, a historic bar that has been home to Latin/LGBT immigrant communities since 1963. With a magical-realist flourish the bar itself becomes a character, narrating what happens when a weekly party (organized by Director Wu Tsang, DJs NGUZUNGUZU, and Total Freedom) called Wildness explodes into creativity and conflict. What does “safe space” mean? Who needs it? And how does it differ among us? At the Silver Platter, the search for answers creates coalitions across generations.

    Saturday March 10, 2012 11:15am - 12:47pm @ Alamo Lamar B (1120 South Lamar Blvd)

    Partially blinded by an unknown illness at the age of 4 and sent out to work on the tough streets of Kano in Nigeria at the age of 9, Aisha Sani Abdullahi's life chances were not great. However, a chance encounter sent Aisha's life in a completely different direction… Aisha's Song is an energetic and beautifully shot 16mm documentary that uses the sounds of street life in Kano in order to create a vibrant and organic soundscape. Touching and uplifting, the film is a story of female empowerment from a part of the world where women are all too often overlooked.

    In 1967, Brute Force had just released his first album on Columbia Records and was on the brink of becoming a star. The Beatles championed his next single, "King of Fuh," to be released on Apple Records. But dreams of fame and fortune quickly turned into nightmares when the record was censored and permanently shelved. In 2010, Sony and Apple reissued Brute Force's controversial music from the sixties, giving him another chance to re-capture his dreams of rock stardom.

    Shot cinematically, IT AIN'T OVER is a visually stunning documentary that follows Dr. Edward Dobson, a man accustomed to counseling people through suffering, as he comes to grips with the unusual disease eating away his body. ALS or “Lou Gehrig's Disease” is a degenerative disorder that systemically incapacitates the body, commandeering the ability to hold, speak, walk, swallow, and even breathe until it causes the lungs to fatally collapse. They don't know what causes it, and there is no cure. After learning he had 2-5 years to live, Ed chose to examine what hope looks like in situations where it doesn't exist.

After many unsuccessful attempts, Mr. Lee returned with the camera intact and photographic evidence of his travels. Intrigued by his findings, Juergen published the photographs on the internet, unaware that his small invention would send shockwaves around the world and alter his life forever.

    Written in Ink is a documentary about hope. The compelling story of a man trying to regain contact with his sister after 14 years of silence. But can one change what has already been written in ink? Beautifully shot on 35mm the film has been praised for its ability to extract with sensitivity the most hidden recesses of the human soul and for its distinctive documentary language. Without the use of interviews and voice-over the film closely follows its protagonist's endeavor and becomes an allegory for the trials of human existence.

    Saturday March 10, 2012 7:00pm - 8:05pm @ Alamo Lamar B (1120 South Lamar Blvd)

    "WONDER WOMEN! The Untold Story of American Superheroines" traces the fascinating evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman. From the birth of the comic book superheroine in the 1940s to the blockbusters of today, WONDER WOMEN! looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society’s anxieties about women’s liberation. "WONDER WOMEN!" goes behind the scenes with Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, comic writers and artists, and real life superheroines such as Gloria Steinem, Shelby Knox and others who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male dominated superhero genre.

Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters
    Saturday March 10, 2012 9:30pm - 10:47pm @ Alamo Lamar B (1120 South Lamar Blvd)

    Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters follows the acclaimed photographer’s decade-long quest to create a series of haunting, surreal, and stunningly elaborate portraits of small-town American life. His photographs are like single-frame movies — partly because each composition brims with narrative, partly because he uses cinematic tools such as special effects, hundreds of lights, and huge crews of technicians. As we travel with him — from first inspirations, through countless creative and logistical obstacles, to the instant where all the elements coalesce in a single perfect moment — we realize that, despite their vast scale, Crewdson’s images grow from his most intimate dreams and fantasies.

    The Austin Chronicle recommends this event in "Art as Acts of Subversion and Immersion: 'The Sheik and I,' 'Trash Dance,' and 'Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters'." Read the full feature here.

Gritty, elliptical, and voyeuristic, Francine is a portrait of a near-silent misfit and her fragile first steps in an unfamiliar world.

Paul Williams Still Alive
    Sunday March 11, 2012 3:45pm - 5:09pm @ Alamo Lamar B (1120 South Lamar Blvd)
    In the seventies, Paul Williams wrote hits like “We’ve Only Just Begun” "Evergreen" and “Rainbow Connection." He starred in Battle for the Planet of the Apes and on Johnny Carson’s couch and then, he kind of disappeared. Williams struck a chord with many, including director Stephen Kessler--who found him. Paul Williams Still Alive is both a rollicking pop-culture flashback and the humorous journey of an awkward documentarian and his reluctant subject. Yet it ultimately evolves into the touching tale of a man who has made peace with the beast that fame and celebrity awoke.

    Brooklyn Castle is a documentary about I.S. 318 – an inner-city school where more than 65 percent of students are from homes with incomes below the federal poverty level – that also happens to have the best, most winning junior high school chess team in the country. (If Albert Einstein, who was rated 1800, were to join the team, he’d only rank fifth best.) Chess has transformed the school from one cited in 2003 as a “school in need of improvement” to one of New York City’s best. But a series of recession-driven public school budget cuts now threaten to undermine those hard-won successes.

    "The Central Park Effect" reveals the extraordinary array of wild birds who grace Manhattan’s celebrated patch of green and the equally colorful, full-of-attitude New Yorkers who schedule their lives around the rhythms of migration. Acclaimed author Jonathan Franzen, an idiosyncratic trombone technician, a charming fashion-averse teenager, and a bird-tour leader who’s recorded every sighting she’s made since the 1940s are among the film’s cast of characters. Featuring spectacular wildlife footage capturing the changing seasons, this lyrical documentary transports the viewer to a dazzling world that goes all but unnoticed by the 38 million people who visit the park each year.

Lovely Molly
    Tuesday March 13, 2012 8:45pm - 10:20pm @ Alamo Lamar B (1120 South Lamar Blvd)
    "Lovely Molly" is a gripping horror thriller that begins as newlywed Molly Reynolds moves back into her long-abandoned childhood home. Soon, she experiences unnerving and impossible things. What starts as a simple story about things going bump in the night escalates into a battle for dominion over Molly's spirit, as she is beset by a cunning, malevolent force bent on wreaking havoc and terror on Molly and her family. Richly exploring the parallels between psychosis, addiction, and demonic possession to chilling effect, "Lovely Molly" shows us what really happens before the exorcist arrives. "Lovely Molly" premiered to critical acclaim at the 2011 Toronto Film Festival's Midnight Madness.

The Sheik and I
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 11:15am - 1:03pm @ Alamo Lamar B (1120 South Lamar Blvd)

    Commissioned by a Middle Eastern Biennial to make a film on the theme of "art as a subversive act," independent filmmaker Caveh Zahedi ("I Am a Sex Addict") goes overboard. Told that he can do whatever he wants except make fun of the Sheik, who rules the country and finances the Biennial, Zahedi decides to do just that. He turns his camera on the Biennial itself and gleefully presses every culturally sensitive button he can find. But his court jester antics fail to amuse. Zahedi's film is banned for blasphemy and he is threatened with a fatwa.

    The Austin Chronicle recommends this event in "Art as Acts of Subversion and Immersion: 'The Sheik and I,' 'Trash Dance,' and 'Gregory Crewdson: Brief Encounters'." Read the full feature here.

Iron Sky
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 11:45pm - 1:18am @ Alamo Lamar B (1120 South Lamar Blvd)

    Review by Marc Savlov, The Austin Chronicle

    Space Nazis must die.Any film that stars Udo Kier as a Nazi is comedy gold in our book and Iron Sky, from Finnish director Timo Vuorensola, is a crackerjack bit of Aryan tomfoolery, this despite the fact that the film is essentially a one-note gag strung out to feature length.Iron Sky's beautifully retro vision of the master race on the moon is great fun, especially if, like Indiana Jones, you hate Nazis. And who doesn't? Apart from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and theRed Skull, no one, that's who. Iron Sky's very premise sells the entirety of the film and while not every jape hits its target, the overall effect is pure fanboy-centric fun.

    In the waning days of WWII, German scientists managed to design a spacecraft capable of landing on the moon, where, ever since, the last vestiges of Hitler's mad dream have survived and thrived on the dark side (literally and, I suppose, figuratively as well). Led by Kier's equally demented Führer Kortzfleisch, they're preparing to return and create the Fourth Reich.

    It's 2018 and Sarah Palin (Stephanie Paul) is in the White House when a chance encounter between an American astronaut and a moon Nazi results in Korzfleisch's decision to invade the earth as soon as possible via ProjectGotterdamerung, a gigantic space armada replete with swastika-branded fighter ships and hyper-obedient moon-Germans.

    Iron Sky's weakest link, strangely, is the relationship that develops between blonde Aryan goddess/school teacher Renate Richter (Julia Dietze) and African-American astronaut James Washington (Christopher Kirby), the latter of which has arrived on the moon to foil the Nazi plot. The jokes here are too obvious and the characters played too broadly to be truly transgressive, and at times the whole film seems to be sliding into some sort of wild meta-self parody.

    Still, Iron Sky looks like a million deutschmarks (part of the film's funding was crowdsourced on the internet) and it's a surreal pleasure to watch. And Udo Kier? Unhinged as ever.

Hunky Dory
    Thursday March 15, 2012 11:00am - 12:49pm @ Alamo Lamar B (1120 South Lamar Blvd)

    In the summer of 1976, keen drama teacher Vivienne fights sweltering heat and general teenage apathy to put on an end of year music version of Shakespeare’s The Tempest. To engage her students, she uses hits of the time, which will be performed by a fresh young cast. What emerges is a funny and tender tale reflecting the high school experience itself in which the kids’ voices add a particular poignancy and beauty to some familiar classic tunes, making the film a nostalgia trip for the older audience members and a fresh introduction to some classic pop to the younger cinema goers.

"$ELLEBRITY" is a candid dialogue about the tone and texture of celebrity, past, present and future; an examination of our pop culture; and an honest look at the quality of our media consumption.

    "WE ARE LEGION: The Story of the Hacktivists" takes us inside the world of Anonymous, the radical "hacktivist" collective that has redefined civil disobedience for the digital age. The film explores early hacktivist groups like Cult of the Dead Cow and Electronic Disturbance Theater, then moves to Anonymous' raucous beginnings on the website 4chan. Through interviews with current members, people recently returned from prison or facing trial, writers, academics, activists and major players in various "raids," the documentary traces Anonymous’ evolution from merry pranksters to a full-blown movement with a global reach, the most transformative civil disobedience of our time.

The film is comprised of sound design, years of recorded voice messages, and macro photography. It explores memory by transcribing that which is tactile into that which is visual. The messages become fading imprints and remainders; the rust rather than the iron, the fossil rather than the bone. REMAINS asks the question, how does one remember touch and what is the emotional impact of those memories.
