With echoes of Fellini, Italy’s Oscar submission follows writer Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo) a permanent fixture in Rome's social circles since the legendary success of his only novel. Having seduced his way through the city's lavish night life for decades, his 65th birthday coincides with a shock from the past. Jep finds himself unexpectedly taking stock of his life, turning his cutting wit on himself and looking past the extravagant nightclubs, parties, and cafés to find Rome in its absurd, exquisite beauty. Paolo Sorrentino (IL DIVO) returns with another unforgettable tale. (Italy, 2013, 182m, DCP)

Oscar favorite Matthew McConaughey stars in a tale of renegades and outcasts who bond together in a transformative true-life tale of resilience and innovation. (U.S., 2013, 117m, DCP, FilmDistrict)

Santa Fe-based artists Sydney Cooper and Edie Tsong present a new collaboration in the form of an installation and performance series called Forget Your Perfect Offering. This creative space illuminates the struggle to find meaning through object arrangement, ancestor worship, and celebration of everyday life in a ritual setting. This show celebrates the many ways we make meaning out of what we do. Blending religions, traditions, icons, mundane objects and repetitive activities, the artists create moments of introspection and community togetherness while highlighting the hybrid nature of contemporary ritual. Cooper and Tsong invite a spectrum of other local artists to produce performances throughout the run of this unique show.
