    A comedy about two brothers, a girl with a broken heart, a sex tape, an angel and a pig... Frank (CHARLIE HUNNAM) has been tortured, embarrassed, and humiliated  -- usually on film -- by his brother Bruce (CHRIS O'DOWD) his entire life.  Now that Bruce has finally kicked drugs and turned his life around, things should be different.  But when Frank's one-night stand with a distressed young woman (LIZZY CAPLAN) goes not quite as planned, Bruce's camera is ready, as always, to capture it...and share it with the world.

    In 1994 Korean-American teenager, Hyun Jae, went to a bar in New Mexico where a handsome young man posing as a firefighter offered her a ride home. Then she was abducted and smuggled into Las Vegas where she was imprisoned as a sex slave for two years. During her captivity, Hyun Jae (dubbed Eden by her captors) ensured her own survival by steadily carving out power and influence within the very organization that imprisoned her. Inspired by the complex and harrowing true story of human trafficking survivor Chong Kim, "Eden" peers into the darkest corners of America and attempts to discover the humanity within.

A scenario unfolds whereby the pale stranger finds himself welcomed into their fold. He is soon infatuated with the newlywed bride of the family's neighbor. As a love blossoms, dark secrets begin emerging.

Compliance
    Monday March 12, 2012 11:00am - 12:30pm @ Stateside Theatre (719 Congress Ave)
    When a police officer tells you to do something, you do it. Right? On a busy day at a suburban Ohio fast food joint, high-strung manager Sandra receives a phone call from a police officer saying that a pretty young employee, Becky, has stolen money from a customer. Convinced she's doing the right thing, Sandra commences the investigation, following instructions from the officer on the line, no matter how invasive they become. As we watch, we ask ourselves: “Why don’t they just say no?” and perhaps more troubling, "Am I certain I wouldn't do the same?" Inspired by true events.

Paul Williams Still Alive
    Tuesday March 13, 2012 2:00pm - 3:24pm @ Stateside Theatre (719 Congress Ave)

    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.

    After a long absence, gangster and father Ulysses Pick (Jason Patric) arrives home to a house haunted with memories, towing the body of a teenaged girl and a bound and gagged young man. His gang waits inside his house, having shot their way past police. There is friction in the ranks. Ulysses, however, is focused on one thing: journeying through the house, room by room, and reaching his wife Hyacinth (Isabella Rossellini) in her bedroom upstairs. The equilibrium of the house has been disturbed and his odyssey eventually becomes an emotional tour, as the ghostly nooks and crannies of the house reveal more about the mysterious Pick family.

The Taiwan Oyster
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 9:15pm - 11:10pm @ Stateside Theatre (719 Congress Ave)

    After the tragic death of a newly arrived Ex-pat, ESL kindergarten teachers Simon and Darin, steal the corpse in order to perform the final rites for the fallen stranger. Their quest for the perfect burial spot becomes a quixotic odyssey along Taiwan's picturesque East Coast Highway, where they encounter welcoming families, violent gangsters, personal demons, and Nikita, their traveling companion. The duty, transport, and dementia fueled by frequent substance abuse, ignites an internalization in all three characters as they define their personal feelings concerning mortality, purpose, burial rites and the concept of legacy.

    The Austin Chronicle recommends this event in "Aftershocks: Finding Inspiration in the Devastation of the 921 Earthquake." Read the full feature here.

Brooklyn Castle
    Friday March 16, 2012 11:15am - 12:56pm @ Stateside Theatre (719 Congress Ave)
    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.

    Determined to honor his father’s scouting legacy and mount one last comeback for his dwindling troop, Assistant Scoutmaster Randy Stevens (Patton Oswalt) pays a visit to his business-minded brother Kirk (Johnny Knoxville), who is throwing a television-themed slumber party for his newly adopted 10-year-old son at his McMansion. Randy pressures the boys to secretly ditch the party and join him on a weekend scout trip. Pursued by Kirk and his security guard (Rob Riggle), the adventure lands the boys in trouble at every turn, pits them against angry parents and park rangers, yet ultimately turns the group of sheltered kids into a troop to be reckoned with.

    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.

Waiting For Lightning
    Saturday March 17, 2012 2:45pm - 4:12pm @ Stateside Theatre (719 Congress Ave)

    From the producers of "Step Into Liquid", comes "Waiting For Lightning", the story of Danny Way, a young boy from a broken home in Vista, CA, whose passion for skateboarding would one day bring him and his creation, a ramp of prodigious and dangerous proportions, across many cultural and ideological boundaries to attempt the impossible: jump China’s Great Wall on a skateboard. It’s a film about how much abuse the body can sustain, how deep you have to dig to survive the betrayals of family, and how high and far dreams can fly.

Trash Dance
    Saturday March 17, 2012 7:30pm - 8:35pm @ Stateside Theatre (719 Congress Ave)

    Sometimes inspiration is found in unexpected places. Choreographer Allison Orr finds beauty and grace in garbage trucks -- and in the men and women who pick up our trash. She joins city sanitation workers on their daily routes to listen, learn, and ultimately to try to convince them to collaborate in a unique dance performance. Hard working, often carrying a second job, their lives are already full with work, family and dreams of their own. But some step forward, and after months of rehearsal, two dozen trash collectors and their trucks perform an extraordinary spectacle. On an abandoned airport runway, thousands of people show up to see how in the world a garbage truck can "dance."

    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.
