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)
In 1985, Texas cowboy Ron Woodroof’s free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live. Ostracized by his friends, he takes matters in his own hands, tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal. 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)

Atomic Surplus is a multi-faceted project that examines what it means to live in the birthplace of the atomic bomb. Through art that addresses not only New Mexico identity, but also the larger realms of science, environment, war, activism, fear and hope, Atomic Surplus will consist of a major group exhibition; a sub-exhibition of historic artworks; a film series; a lecture series; hands-on, field-based children's education program; essay-driven exhibition catalog; and online archive.
Through a multi-pronged approach and working with diverse partners, Atomic Surplus illustrates a diversity of perspectives on the nuclear legacy. The project not only references historical moments and regional connections, but uses New Mexico and the WWII-era as a touchstone for looking at much more global and contemporary consequences.
As centerpiece of the Atomic Surplus project, this group exhibition sets the tone for its auxiliary programs and publications. The work of 12 international artists represents a variety of topics and viewpoints. Presented in various media, the artworks depict everything from the first atomic bomb tests to nuclear waste facilities to the thriving wildlife in Chernobyl to the meltdown in Fukushima to the promise of nuclear power. Atomic Surplus does not take a position on the nuclear issue, but exposes audiences to a range of imagery and ideas. A color catalog accompanies the exhibition, with short essays from artists, scholars, historians, and others.
