The Void

The Void

Jeremy Gillespie, Steven Kostanski / 2017, Canada
90min / Digital

From the producers of THE WITCH and the filmmakers behind MANBORG. When police officer Carter discovers a blood-soaked man limping down a deserted road, he rushes him to a local hospital with a bare bones, night shift staff. As cloaked, cult-like figures surround the building, the patients and staff inside start to turn ravenously insane. Trying to protect the survivors, Carter leads them into the depths of the hospital where they discover a gateway to immense evil.

"Lovecraftian horror that disorients with a vicious nightmare logic." Fangoria (R.I.P.)

Mission Control: The Unsung Heroes of Apollo

David Fairhead / 2016, USA-UK
101min / Digital

Q&A with Apollo Flight Controllers all weekend! Friday with Col. Joseph A. Lazzaro, Saturday with Dr. James Joki, and Sunday with Richard Stachurski.

At the heart of the remarkable Apollo space program was the team who worked in MISSION CONTROL. They were born against a backdrop of economic turmoil and global conflict. Some stemmed from a rural lifestyle unchanged since the 19th century, while others grew up in a gritty, blue-collar America laden with mines and smoke stacks. They ranged from students straight out of college, to soldiers toughened by military service. Yet, from such ordinary beginnings, an extraordinary team was born. They set out on what JFK called “the most hazardous, dangerous, and greatest adventure upon which mankind has ever embarked.” Guided by the team’s testimony and the supporting voices of Apollo astronauts and modern NASA flight directors, “MISSION CONTROL” explores everything from the faltering start of the program to the Mercury and Gemini missions, and the tragedy of the Apollo 1 fire to the glories of the Moon landings. Their decade of achievement is one that will always soar through history.

Who's Crazy

Who's Crazy

Thomas White / 1966, USA
73min / Digital

Accompanied by a frenetic original soundtrack by the great Ornette Coleman, insane asylum inmates escape their confinement and hole up in a deserted Belgian farmhouse, where they cook large quantities of eggs and condemn one of their own in an impromptu court. The actors don’t have much need for words when they can dance around, light things on fire, and drip hot wax on each other instead. Ornette Coleman and the other members of his trio – David Izenzon and Charles Moffett – recorded their score for WHO’S CRAZY? in one go while the film was projected for them, and the result feels like a bizarre silent film with the greatest possible accompaniment. The soundtrack also features a young Marianne Faithfull singing what are probably her most experimental riffs – written for her especially by Ornette – as she asks, “Is God man? Is man God?” in an original track titled “Sadness.

”WHO’S CRAZY? was long thought to be lost by jazz-on-film scholars and the Library of Congress. In early 2015, the only surviving copy of the film, a 35mm print struck for the film’s debut at Cannes in 1966, was salvaged from director Thomas White’s garage after sitting on a shelf there for decades. Ornette’s soundtrack exists as a hard-to-find LP, but audiences have never before had the opportunity to see what Ornette saw when he composed it. The cast consists of actors from New York’s experimental theater troupe, the Living Theatre, who also performed in Shirley Clarke’s THE CONNECTION; and speaking of connections, Clarke would later direct the fantastic ORNETTE: MADE IN AMERICA (1984). The 35mm print of WHO’S CRAZY? was repaired by John Klacsmann, archivist at Anthology Film Archives.

The Transfiguration

Michael O’Shea / 2017, USA
97min / Digital

An official selection at the Cannes Film Festival, writer/director Michael O’Shea’s debut feature The Transfiguration follows troubled teen Milo who hides behind his fascination with vampire lore. When he meets the equally alienated Sophie, the two form a bond that begins to challenge Milo’s dark obsession, blurring his fantasy into reality. A chilling portrait of violence, The Transfiguration is an atmospheric thriller set against the grit of New York City.

“A quiet bite, but one that leaves its mark” The Hollywood Reporter

“Bold and brutal in shocking spurts, the indie horror drama from writer-director O'Shea is a startling debut that leaves a fresh mark on the genre while celebrating its forbears.” LA Times
