Meru

“Easy to dismiss as just a “climbing film,” but I urge you to give Meru a chance. Visually striking with a story and setting that will move and inspire you. Already watched it? Watch it again in anticipation fo the filmmakers’ new film Free Solo that just premiered at the Telluride Film Festival.” –Josh Levey, Marketing Director

WHERE TO WATCH:

 


The Money Pit

I grew up on this film, begging to rent the VHS over and over. I vaguely remember never returning it…OOPS! A Classic 80’s Tom Hanks comedy, slap stick silly with a good story anyone can relate to. If you’re looking for a an hour and a half to escape from heavier real life stuff, look no further.” –Carly Nelson, Film Program Operations Manager

WHERE TO WATCH:

 


RBG

“Watched RBG again last weekend as a timely look at the process and importance of the Supreme Court Justices. In awe of her discipline, dedication and inspiration. Great footage, engaging pace, bi-partisan interviews, even romance.” –Elisabeth Nebeker, Executive Director

WHERE TO WATCH:

 


The House of Flowers (La Casa de las Flores)

“This Spanish-language melodrama centers on the story of a wealthy and secretive Mexican family. This dark comedy is really a telenovela with a modern twist and one of Mexico’s best productions. The show is available dubbed over in English, but it’s better enjoyed in Spanish—subtitles.” –Nancy Rivera, Development Coordinator

WHERE TO WATCH:

 


Preacher

“Based on the graphic novel of the same name, this darkly comic and gory series is quite possibly the most-bat s%^t crazy show on television. It is incredibly fun and entertaining to watch.”  –Patrick Hubley, Programming Director

WHERE TO WATCH:

 


World Of Tomorrow

“A 4-year-old girl named Emily is taken into the future by her clone. Don Hertzfeldt’s haunting visuals, sound design, and story work together beautifully to make us think about what defines our humanity. #NowIsTheEnvyOfAllTheDead” –Leslie Means, Education Coordinator

WHERE TO WATCH:

 


The Florida Project

“If you didn’t see this wonderful, real, heartfelt drama when we played it around the state, stream it right away! This movie about a little girl and her broke mother living in a motel will change your perspective forever about poverty, custody, and the things we do out of desperation.” –Davey Davis, Programming Coordinator

WHERE TO WATCH:

 


GLOW

“Set in the 80’s, GLOW follows an all-female wrestling group trying to make it big on network TV. It has a perfect mix of drama and comedy and encapsulates what I have always imagined this era to be like as a 90’s baby. The writers also masterfully unravel the large ensemble’s individual stories, along with rich and authentic perspectives of what it must be like to be a feminist back then.” –Melissa Kinney, Marketing Manager
