April 22: This Changes Everything
(Canada., 89 min., 2015, rated PG). What if confronting the climate crisis is the best chance we'll ever get to build a better world? Filmed over 211 days in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change. The film presents seven portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana's Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Naomi Klein's narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds up to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.

 May 6: Beatriz at Dinner (USA, 82 min., 2017, rated R). This Trump-era satire features a culture clash involving a middle-aged, working class Mexican immigrant going head-to-head with a rich, bilious, selfish real estate tycoon who proudly skirts the law. Beatriz, played by Salma Hayek, an immigrant from a poor town in Mexico, has drawn on her innate kindness to build a career as a holistic health practitioner in Los Angeles. Doug Strutt, played by John Lithgow, is a cutthroat, self-satisfied billionaire. When Beatrizís car breaks down, these two opposites meet at a dinner party, their worlds collide, and neither will ever be the same.

May 20: Manchester by the Sea (USA., 137 min., 2016, rated R). Lee Chandler is a brooding, irritable loner who works as a handyman for a Boston apartment block. One damp winter day he gets a call summoning him to his hometown, north of the city. His brother's heart has given out suddenly, and he's been named guardian to his 16-year-old nephew. As if losing his only sibling and doubts about raising a teenager weren't enough, his return to the past re-opens an unspeakable tragedy.

 *NOTE: The starred films will be screened with English subtitles.
