Big Bad Wolves Big Bad Wolves

When the seemingly meek schoolteacher Dror is arrested - and then released due to a police blunder - as the lead suspect in a brutal child murder, renegade detective Miki and enraged grieving father Gidi take the law into their own hands in search of information and bloody justice. Their violent rage quickly spins out of control in this fantastically intense, darkly funny revenge thriller from the pioneers of Israeli horror cinema.

Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth tells the extraordinary story of one of America’s greatest living writers, from her childhood in a family of Georgia sharecroppers to a distinguished career as an activist and author. The first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for her novel The Color Purple, Walker found herself at the center of a national controversy surrounding the book and the film adaptation’s depiction of the relationship between black women and the men in their lives.

Closed Curtain Closed Curtain

Filmed in secret in defiance of director Jafar Panahi’s 20-year filmmaking ban, Closed Curtain tells the story of a writer whose plans of working in seclusion are disrupted when strangers break into his home. Just as the situation between the mysterious, inquisitive visitors and the paranoid writer reaches its apparent resolution, the film takes a step back with a surreal blend of fiction and autobiographical documentary, as Panahi himself finds the fiction film bleeding into his everyday life.
