Mesmerizing…sure to generate heated discussion..." –The Hollywood Reporter

An Evening with Jon Jost

One of America’s most important trailblazing independent filmmakers, Jon Jost began making 16mm films in 1963. He has made 38 feature-length films, all of which he has conceived, written, photographed, directed and edited; most of these he also produced. He has made more than 30 short works and the large-scale, seven-screen installation work, TRINITY. Jost was the subject of a MoMA retrospective that subsequently traveled to  venues around the world. Jost will show his latest work, COMING TO TERMS, a meditation on family and mortality that Jonathan Rosenbaum called Jost’s “greatest feature …  (bringing together his) exquisitely meditative sense of visual surface and texture with his tragic sense of how America has been losing its soul … geology and psychology meet on the same devastated terrain — the wasted world that we all currently inhabit.” The film stars the legendary filmmaker James Benning.

The Green Prince

“Four stars … Terrific. As gripping as any high-concept Hollywood thriller.” –The Guardian
They should have been sworn enemies. But after the son of a Hamas leader became an informer for the Israelis, the Israeli secret ops agent who he worked with became a trusted friend. Born in the troubled Occupied Territories, Mosab Hassan Yousef’s fervor against Israel was unquestionable, ultimately landing him in prison. But he began to see Hamas as a problem that escalated violence, not a solution, and agreed to spy on the Hamas elite for over a decade. Nadav Schirman’s mind-blowing true story shows how he risked exposure and certain death while grappling with the perception that he had betrayed his own family and people, and how relationship with Gonen Ben Yitzhak, the Israeli secret agent, became one of unbreakable loyalty.

At 90 years old, and suffering from the debilitating effects of diabetes, Terry continues to share his wisdom with the next generation.
