Harold & Lillian: A Hollywood Love Story

Daniel Raim / 2017, USA
94min / Digital

Movie fans know the work of Harold and Lillian Michelson, even if they don’t recognize the names. Working largely uncredited in the Hollywood system, storyboard artist Harold and film researcher Lillian left an indelible mark on classics by Alfred Hitchcock, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Stanley Kubrick, Roman Polanski and many more. Through an engaging mix of love letters, film clips and candid conversations with Harold and Lillian, Danny DeVito, Mel Brooks, Francis Ford Coppola and others, this deeply engaging documentary from Academy Award®-nominated director Daniel Raim offers both a moving portrait of a marriage and a celebration of the unknown talents that help shape the films we love.

“Truly charming...A terrifically moving human story!” Vanity Fair

“CRITICS' PICK! Charming... Like flipping through misplaced leaves in a photo book, the documentary maintains a free-flowing tone as it uncovers the work that went into creating some of the indelible scenes in Hollywood history.” New York Times

Red May: Capitalism, Technology, Subjectivity

RED MAY: Red Planets: The Left Turn in Science Fiction


Panel: Nisi Shawl, Thomas Foster, Jason Read, Jason Adams

Maybe you think it’s easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism, but science fiction writers--the great ones like Ballard, Le Guin, Octavia Butler--can and do imagine both. Science fiction and grand Left theory have much in common: extrapolation, cognitive estrangement, the ability to unearth the fragment of the future in the present or the past alternative that the capitalist present killed. Teasing out the relationships between these complementary modes of imagination are SF author Nisi Shawl (Everfair), critical theorist Jason Read (The Politics of Transindividuality); Jason Adams (Occupy Time) and Thomas Foster (The Souls of Cyberfolk).

Patrick Read Johnson / 2007/2017, USA
113min / Digital

From the producers of "Star Wars," "American Graffiti" and "Lost in Translation" with an original score by Alan Parsons and David Russo, "5-25-77" is an off-beat, coming-of-age comedy that celebrates the dreamers in us all. It tells the true story of a sci-fi obsessed filmmaker living in a small Illinois town who grows up making 8mm knockoffs of his favorite films. One day, his mom, desperate to help him escape the fate of small town life, makes a phone call to the editor of American Cinematographer Magazine that results in a Wizard of Oz like transport of our hero to Hollywood… where he becomes the first person that didn’t WORK on Star Wars, to SEE Star Wars.
