The August Virgin (NR)

#VirtualCinema premiere

Eva (played by the film's co-writer, the luminescent Itsaso Arana) is about to turn 33. Her decision to stay in Madrid in the sweltering month of August, when most of the city's inhabitants flee, is something of a leap of faith - she's in search of herself and her own life. The neighborhoods around her are bursting with traditional Saint's Days parties and celebrations, while she encounters a series of old friends and lovers, and meets some new ones.

Nomad: In the Footsteps of Bruce Chatwin (NR)

#VirtualCinema premiere

Werner Herzog turns the camera on himself and his decades-long friendship with the late travel writer Bruce Chatwin, a kindred spirit whose quest for ecstatic truth carried him to all corners of the globe. Herzog's deeply personal portrait of Chatwin, illustrated with archival discoveries, film clips, and a mound of brontosaurus skin, encompasses their shared interest in aboriginal cultures, ancient rituals, and the mysteries stitching together life on earth.

"Duplicating many of Chatwin's most notable journeys, Herzog evokes the late English wanderer's restless soul and curious fascination with profound issues that have long captivated the director.

Driven to Abstraction (2019) (NR)

Premiering on #VirtualCinema August 28th.

DRIVEN TO ABSTRACTION unravels a mutating tale of self-delusion, greed, and fraud — the $80 million forgery scandal that rocked the art world and brought down Knoedler, New York City’s oldest and most venerable gallery. Was the gallery’s esteemed director the victim of a con artist who showed up with an endless treasure trove of previously unseen abstract expressionist masterpieces? Or did she eventually suspect they were fakes, yet continue to sell them for millions of dollars for fifteen years? Whatever the truth, two women from very different worlds crossed paths in what would become the greatest hoax ever of Modern American Art.

Epicentro (NR)

#VirtualCinema premiere August 28th.

EPICENTRO is an immersive and metaphorical portrait of post-colonial, "utopian" Cuba, where the 1898 explosion of the USS Maine still resonates. This Big Bang ended Spanish colonial dominance in the Americas and ushered in the era of the American Empire. At the same time and place, a powerful tool of conquest was born: cinema as propaganda. In his latest film, Hubert Sauper explores a century of interventionism and myth-making together with the extraordinary people of Havana -- who he calls "young prophets" -- to interrogate time, imperialism and cinema itself.

"Politics, people and the power of cinema are brought together to create a mosaic-like reflection on Cuba’s history in Epicentro.

Feels Good Man (NR)

A Liberty Theatre #VirtualCinema presentation.

As in many of the weirdest fairy tales, it all starts with a frog. This story, however, is all too real. In November 2016, a barbaric election cycle had exposed a seismic cultural rift, and the country suddenly felt like a much different place. For underground cartoonist Matt Furie, that sensation was even more surreal. His innocent creation, Pepe the frog, had become co-opted by agents of chaos.

"'Feels Good Man' offers an inside peek at the internet's growing ability to affect and shape modern society, which often makes the film a nightmare about extremism and technology." -Nick Schager, Variety

Jimmy Carter: Rock & Roll President (NR)

A Liberty Theatre #VirtualCinema presentation.

If it hadn't been for a bottle of scotch and a late-night visit from musician Greg Allman, Jimmy Carter might never have been elected the 39th President of the United States. This fascinating documentary charts the mostly forgotten story of how Carter, a lover of all types of music, forged a tight bond with musicians Willie Nelson, the Allman Brothers, Bob Dylan and others. Low on campaign funds and lacking in name recognition, Carter relied on support from these artists to give him a crucial boost in the Democratic primaries. Once Carter was elected, the musicians became frequent guests in the White House.

The Disrupted (NR)

A Liberty Theatre #VirtualCinema presentation.

THE DISRUPTED is an intimate portrait of 3 working class Americans who show enormous resilience. Even before the COVID-19 outbreak fundamentally changed the global financial landscape, when the U.S. economy was robust, there were economic casualties. People fell through the cracks, didn’t land in safety nets or lived in constant insecurity. THE DISRUPTED is about three of these people: a multi-generational Kansas farmer trying to save his farm, an Ohio father laid off from a factory job and AN UBER driver in Florida struggling to cobble together a living. Their stories of resilience and struggle ultimately expose the cracks in the American dream.

Ultimately, it is a story of family love and courage.
