Road Movie

roadmovie550

"Waves of emotion emerge in an instant; moments of terror, exhilaration, hilarity, even first love unite in a flowing cinematic essay … a forceful social experience." –Screen Space

A mosaic of asphalt adventures, landscape photography, and some of the craziest shit you’ve ever seen, Dmitrii Kalashnikov’s THE ROAD MOVIE is a stunning compilation of video footage shot exclusively via the deluge of dashboard cameras that populate Russian roads. The epitome of a you-have- to-see- it-to- believe-it documentary, THE ROAD MOVIE captures a wide range of spectacles through the windshield—including a comet crashing down to Earth, an epic forest fire, and no shortage of angry motorists taking road rage to wholly new and unexpected levels—all accompanied by bemused commentary from unseen and often stoic drivers and passengers.

Mary and the Witch's Flower

maryandthewitches550

Opens a world of visual enchantment where water can dance, brooms and carpets take flight, and woodland critters transform into fantastical beings … its emotional warmth and wondrously inviting hand-drawn imagery carry on Ghibli’s proud tradition … weeps you up and then gently sets you down, back into a world that seems more capable of magic than it did before.” –LA Times

Academy Award®-nominated director and former Studio Ghibli artist Hiromasa Yonebayashi—creator of WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE and THE SECRET WORLD OF ARRIETTY, and animator on SPIRITED AWAY, HOWL’S MOVING CASTLE and PONYO—adapts a classic young adult novel to tell the heartfelt story of a young girl seeking her place in the world. When Mary, an ordinary but very lonely girl, discovers an old broomstick, and a magical flower, she has a night of unimaginable adventures, including a school that might remind some of Hogwarts … though it was written long before the Harry Potter series. A glorious, bittersweet fantasy-action tale for the whole family (Japan, 2017, 102m, GKids)
