Chasing Ice
    Friday March 9, 2012 7:30pm - 8:46pm @ Alamo Ritz 1 (320 East 6th St)

    Photographer James Balog was once a skeptic about climate change. But through his Extreme Ice Survey, he discovers undeniable evidence of our changing planet. In "Chasing Ice", Balog deploys revolutionary time-lapse cameras to capture a multi-year record of the world's changing glaciers. Traveling with a team across the brutal Arctic, Balog risks his career and his well-being in pursuit of the biggest story facing humanity. As the debate polarizes America, and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, "Chasing Ice" depicts a heroic photojournalist on a mission to deliver fragile hope to our carbon-powered planet.

Just Like Being There
    Friday March 9, 2012 9:30pm - 11:08pm @ Alamo Ritz 1 (320 East 6th St)
    In the gig poster community, artists such as Daniel Danger and Jay Ryan prove that creating this artwork is a way of life, more than just a career. These artists are at the forefront of an expansion of the gig poster genre. MONDO's reinvigoration of "the film poster as an art form," and Gallery 1988’s theme based exhibits are only two ways in which this artwork is reaching a greater public. In a community with strong roots, dating back to the 1960s, this expansion is controversial- refreshing to some, sacrilegious to others.

Girls Against Boys
    Friday March 9, 2012 11:59pm - 1:26am @ Alamo Ritz 1 (320 East 6th St)
    "Girls Against Boys" is a character-driven, psychological thriller about two girls on a killing spree in New York. With edgy and ironic humor and a darkly meditative tone that is far more European or Asian than typically American, it is also a coming-of-age story about a young woman coming to understand how the world really works. It’s a ride for sure, and it even gets more than a little gruesome, but it's character-driven rather than action-driven, and it has a psychological twist that's more like a way of reading the film than a big reveal.

Eating Alabama
    Saturday March 10, 2012 11:00am - 12:02pm @ Alamo Ritz 1 (320 East 6th St)

    In search of a simpler life, a young couple returns home to Alabama where they set out to eat the way their grandparents did – locally and seasonally. But as their new diet forces them to navigate the agricultural industrial complex, they soon realize that nearly everything about the food system has changed since farmers once populated their family histories. A thoughtful and often funny essay on community, the South and sustainability, "Eating Alabama" is a story about why food matters.

Girl Model
    Saturday March 10, 2012 1:00pm - 2:17pm @ Alamo Ritz 1 (320 East 6th St)

    Despite a lack of obvious similarities between Siberia and Tokyo, a thriving model industry connects these distant regions. "Girl Model" follows two protagonists involved in this industry: Ashley, a deeply ambivalent model scout who scours the Siberian countryside looking for fresh faces to send to the Japanese market, and one of her discoveries, Nadya, a thirteen year-old plucked from the Siberian countryside and dropped into the center of Tokyo with promises of a profitable career. After Ashley’s initial discovery of Nadya, the two rarely meet again, but their stories are inextricably bound.

Tchoupitoulas
    Saturday March 10, 2012 3:15pm - 4:35pm @ Alamo Ritz 1 (320 East 6th St)

    "Tchoupitoulas" is a story of the New Orleans night. It is a visually exhilarating and aurally immersive record of one night in the many lives of a thriving nocturnal populace. Three young boys act as our wide-eyed conduits to a parade of entertainers and revelers as they dance through the lamp lit streets and doorways of the Crescent City. From dusk to dawn, from Rampart to the river, we explore the lives and locales of one of the world's most unique cities. In moments, vignettes, performances, and exchanges, "Tchoupitoulas" is a kaleidoscopic odyssey into another side of New Orleans.

    May, a high-strung and overly meticulous nurse, must return to Los Angeles to retrieve bone marrow for a transplant. Soon after her trip begins, her world turns upside down when past and present collide and she runs smack into JP, the man she left behind five years ago. Flustered, May loses the cooler containing the marrow. With only 24 hours remaining, the two embark on an offbeat search through the streets of Los Angeles only to discover that just when you think all is lost you find what you least expected.

The Comedy
    Saturday March 10, 2012 9:00pm - 10:32pm @ Alamo Ritz 1 (320 East 6th St)
    Indifferent even to the prospects of inheriting his father's estate, Swanson (Tim Heidecker) whiles away his days with a group of aging Brooklyn hipsters, engaging in acts of recreational cruelty and pacified boredom. Desensitized and disenchanted, he strays into a series of reckless situations that may offer the promise of redemption or the threat of retribution. A scathing look at the white male on the verge of collapse, Rick Alverson's carefully observed portrait provokes and disorients; a cautionary fable for the autumn of the American Era.

    Saturday March 10, 2012 11:59pm - 1:32am @ Alamo Ritz 1 (320 East 6th St)
    World War II did not end with complete defeat for the Nazis – some of them managed to utilize their secret technologies to flee to the dark side of the Moon. There, deep within their swastika fortress, Schwarze Sonne, they have plotted the reconquest of the Earth for over 70 years. In 2018, the flagship of their space armada, the gigantic Götterdämmerung, is nearing completion, but when the next American crewed moon mission lands too close to the Nazi base for comfort, the plans are rushed forward.

Brooklyn Castle
    Sunday March 11, 2012 11:00am - 12:41pm @ Alamo Ritz 1 (320 East 6th St)

    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.

La Camioneta - The Journey of One American School Bus
    Monday March 12, 2012 1:30pm - 2:41pm @ Alamo Ritz 1 (320 East 6th St)

    Every day dozens of decommissioned school buses migrate from the United States to Guatemala, where they are repaired, repainted, and resurrected as the brightly-colored camionetas that bring people to work each day. Since 2006, nearly 1,000 camioneta drivers and fare-collectors have been killed for not paying the extortion money demanded by local gangs. "La Camioneta" follows the migration of one bus as a vehicle into the stories of five men whose lives become intertwined with its resurrection. Like the bus that unites their stories, the choice between obsolescence and innovation defines their decisions, propelling them toward an increasingly uncertain future.

Degenerate Art: The Art and Culture of Glass Pipes.
    Monday March 12, 2012 4:00pm - 5:14pm @ Alamo Ritz 1 (320 East 6th St)

    “Degenerate Art” tells the story of glass pipe-making from the origins of the “color-changing” pipe, to the radical emerging art movement it has become today. Despite federal laws, pipe-makers have created a whole new genre of American folk art. A huge multi-million dollar industry has formed around this taboo culture. This subversive art challenges our right to free speech and expression, as well as reflecting the nature of the people who make and collect the pieces. One of the last true underground American scenes, glass pipe art remains invisible to mainstream culture.

    On the street, they call it “soy sauce.” It's a paranormal, psychoactive drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. Its users drift across time and dimensions, but some who come back are devoid of all humanity. While most of Earth’s inhabitants remain blissfully oblivious to its threat—make no mistake—an otherworldly invasion is under way, and mankind needs to be saved. Enter John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. How can these guys possibly be expected to rescue mankind from certain destruction?

"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.

The more he fails to express his true feelings, the more his anxiety comes out in increasingly funny and dangerous sleepwalking incidents.

    The video begins by concentrating on the singer and explicit the polyphonic mechanism through which the base of the song is constructed. When the lyrics start, the video turns to a natural scene, more lyrical and organic. Trunks, branches and stones react to the music just like another character, maybe as a inner reflection of the protagonist, with who they vibrate and dialogue within the parallel editing. And if during the first verse the singer appears among a forest, during the second, he ascends to the mountain, evermore free, surrounded by the stars that echo the halo of the trees.

The term also refers to the power attributed to certain persons capable of inflicting injury or bad luck with ill-wishing looks. Religion, Sex and Rock'n'roll. Quite a cocktail.

Your mind is floating, but you’re caught and afraid of going anywhere. When you have a gigantic load upon your shoulders, the easiest thing is to just stand still. The stillness makes you drift.

Degenerate Art: The Art and Culture of Glass Pipes.
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 9:30pm - 10:44pm @ Alamo Ritz 1 (320 East 6th St)
    “Degenerate Art” tells the story of glass pipe-making from the origins of the “color-changing” pipe, to the radical emerging art movement it has become today. Despite federal laws, pipe-makers have created a whole new genre of American folk art. A huge multi-million dollar industry has formed around this taboo culture. This subversive art challenges our right to free speech and expression, as well as reflecting the nature of the people who make and collect the pieces. One of the last true underground American scenes, glass pipe art remains invisible to mainstream culture.

The Oyster Princess (1919) with live score by Bee vs. Moth
    Thursday March 15, 2012 12:00pm - 1:00pm @ Alamo Ritz 1 (320 East 6th St)

    When spoiled Ossi hears that her friend has married a count, her father promises to buy her a prince. The ensuing temper tantrums and mistaken identities make a comic mockery of Ossi’s moneyed world. From 1919, this film represents director Ernst Lubitsch’s early Berlin-era silent comedies, and it revels in lush, intricate sets and absurdly choreographed parades of servants. Austin jazz/rock band Bee vs. Moth performs their original score live with the film. The band’s unique blend of influences as diverse as Charles Mingus and Television makes a rollicking accompaniment for this classic film. www.beevsmoth.com

Bad Brains: Band in DC
    Friday March 16, 2012 9:15pm - 11:00pm @ Alamo Ritz 1 (320 East 6th St)

    Bad Brains are one of the most important and influential American bands still working today. They melded punk and reggae into an innovative style that has yet to be copied. Their impact and influence can be heard in groups like Beastie Boys, No Doubt, Nirvana, Jane's Addiction and countless more. Despite the troubles of an eccentric front man they have stayed together for 30 years without ever reaching the level of success so many think they deserve. Using rare archival footage and original comic illustrations the film re-constructs Bad Brains' rich and complicated history.

Just Like Being There
    Saturday March 17, 2012 6:15pm - 7:53pm @ Alamo Ritz 1 (320 East 6th St)
    In the gig poster community, artists such as Daniel Danger and Jay Ryan prove that creating this artwork is a way of life, more than just a career. These artists are at the forefront of an expansion of the gig poster genre. MONDO's reinvigoration of "the film poster as an art form," and Gallery 1988’s theme based exhibits are only two ways in which this artwork is reaching a greater public. In a community with strong roots, dating back to the 1960s, this expansion is controversial- refreshing to some, sacrilegious to others.
