Life of Brian One Sheet.jpg

Monty Python delivers the group's sharpest and smartest satire of both religion and Hollywood's epic films. Set in 33 A.D. Judea where the exasperated Romans try to impose order, it is a time of chaos and change with no shortage of messiahs and followers willing to believe them. At it's center is Brian Cohen, born in Bethlehem in a stable next door, who, by a series of absurd circumstances is caught up in the new religion and reluctantly mistaken for the promised messiah, providing ample opportunity for the entire ensemble to shine in multiple roles as they question everyone and everything from ex-lepers, Pontius Pilate and haggling to revolutionaries, crazy prophets, religious fanaticism, Roman centurions and crucifixion, forever changing our biblical view.

The Public.jpg

When sub-zero temperatures reach downtown Cincinatti, patrons of the public library- many of them homeless or mentally ill- stage a sit-in, refusing to leave the library and face the dangerously inclement weather. The situation evolves into a stand-off with the local authorities as the media and public watch on. Writer/director Emilio Estevez uses the provocative story and excellent cast to tackle important social issues such as poverty, mental illness and the commodification of news media.

The Invisibles.jpg

While Goebbels infamously declared Berlin "free of Jews" in 1943, 1700 managed to survive in the Nazi capital. Claus Räfle's gripping docudrama traces the stories of four real-life survivors who learned to hide in plain sight. Moving between cinemas, cafés and safe houses, they dodged Nazi officials and a dense network of spies and informants. Yet their prudence was at odds with their youthful recklessness, prompting them to join the resistance, forge passports, or pose as Aryan war widows. Masterfully weaving these story threads together, The Invisibles is a testament to the resourcefulness, willpower and sheer chance needed to survive against incredible odds.
