We Are Northern Lights

14 Oct 2014 6:30PM - 14 Oct 2014 12:00AM

Description:

How do you capture the essence of Scotland in just one film? You invite people from all across the country to submit their unique visions in a mass participation project and combine them into an impressionistic self portrait of contemporary Scotland that is poignant, thrilling, moving, often very funny and strays far from the stereotypes often encountered. Created on the eve of the most momentous decision in the country’s history - the vote for independence, this is a unique chance to re-discover Scotland through the eyes and thoughts of the people who live there.

Viva Chile Mierda

Viva Chile Mierda

15 Oct 2014 2:00AM - 15 Oct 2014 12:00AM

Description: Chile, 1974. Under the cloak of darkness Pinochet's military intelligence service raid the home of the filmmaker's aunt Gaby. She, together with her husband and brother, were blindfolded and taken to a secret military prison to be interrogated. For three weeks they were tortured and terrorized. No one knew where they were. Their children were kept under armed guard. Were it not for the help given to them by one young prison guard, they would not have coped. That guard was Andres 'Papudo' Valenzuela, who several years later would be the first military intelligence officer to admit to the crimes committed by the dictatorship. Through intimate interviews, illustrations, animations and first person voice over, this film traces the lives of both prisoners and guard in order to reflect on the enduring effects of this traumatic history. Their stories shine light on larger issues of exile, national identity, truth and reconciliation.

Loss and Resurrection: The Case of Allan Dwan’s THE HALF-BREED

26 Nov 2014 2:00PM - 26 Nov 2014 12:00AM

Description:

Originally a star of the Broadway stage, Douglas Fairbanks began his film career not as Zorro, Robin Hood, or d'Artagnan, but in a series of contemporary comedies and western dramas filmed under the auspices of the Triangle Film Company. Perhaps the most idiosyncratic of the series was The Half-Breed, released July 1916, in which the star played a half-white/half-Indian outcast suffering from the prejudices of local townspeople. Created by a team of future film legends (director Allan Dwan, production supervisor D.W. Griffith, cinematographer Victor Fleming), the cast also includes: Alma Rubens, Sam De Grasse, and Jewel Carmen. For decades the film had been available only in severely degraded and abbreviated versions, until the San Francisco Silent Film Festival and the Cinematheque française collaborated to restore the film back to its original 1916 release version.
