The Zookeeper's Wife

Fri. 4/14 - Fri. 4/28

(PG-13) 2 Hrs. 6 Min. (Digital) Biography, Drama, History

Starring two-time Academy Award nominee, Jessica Chastain, and Golden Globe nominee, Daniel Bruhl, The Zookeeper’s Wife—based on the best-selling book of the same name, which is in turn based on true life events—tells the story of Antonina and Jan Żabińska, who together managed Poland’s Warsaw Zoo during World War II. When Germany invades in 1939, bringing with it the new Reich, Jan and Antonina must come to terms with their new oppressive reality, all while balancing caring for their children and animal wards. But resistance is not futile, and Antonina and her husband find their own way to protect their family and community from the violence and hatred infiltrating their country.

Kedi
Kedi

Fri. 4/14 - Fri. 4/21

(Doc) 1 Hr. 19 Min. (Digital) In Turkish with English subtitles

Kedi is a profile of an ancient city and its unique people, as seen through the eyes of the most mysterious and beloved animal humans have ever known, the cat. Kedi is not a documentary about house cats or the strays you occasionally see in your back yard. Kedi is a film about the hundreds of thousands of cats who have roamed the metropolis of Istanbul freely for thousands of years, wandering in and out of people's lives, impacting them in ways only an animal who lives between the worlds of the wild and the tamed can. Cats and their kittens bring joy and purpose to those they choose, giving people an opportunity to reflect on life and their place in it. Street cats are such a big part of the culture that when Former U.S. President Barack Obama visited Istanbul, part of his tour included a stop at the Hagia Sophia to visit its famous cat, Gli.  Kedi is far more than a cat fancier's dream, it is a thoughtful, beautifully filmed, absorbing meditation for filmgoers of any purr-suasion.

(NR) 1 Hr. 57 Min. (Digital) In Japanese with English subtitles (Art House, Drama)

In this luminescent film fromHirokazu Kore-eda, a prize-winning author, Ryota, dwells on his past glory and  wastes the money he makes as a private detective on gambling.  After the death of his father, his aging mother and beautiful ex-wife seem to be moving on with their lives. Renewing contact with his initially distrusting family, Ryota struggles to take back control of his existence and find a lasting place in the life of his young son - until a stormy summer night offers them a chance to truly bond again. After the Storm crosses cultural lines to offer timeless observations about parental responsibilities, personal bonds, and the capacity for forgiveness.
“Watch and listen closely ... and worlds of deeply felt, awkwardly expressed passion will unfold in and around a cramped apartment in a nondescript high-rise that has aged along with the inhabitants who raised families there.” ~ NPR
