Movies for Mommies: Breastmilk - the Movie

Program Running Time 90 min.

Films in Program

Directed By: Dana Ben-Ari
(USA, 2014, 90 mins)

With unexpected humor, with an unflinching camera, with some guilt and some pain, this film takes the unusual risk of examining what breast milk truly means. We are often told that breast milk is better. Better for babies, better for mothers, better for nutrition, health, well-being, and society. Many accept this and yet there are still very few women who succeed in breastfeeding exclusively for the recommended six months and beyond. What would it take to change?

"There are Portlandia-worthy moments amid the talk of breast pumps, latching and engorgement, and also surprising insights with implications beyond the nursery."Sheri Linden, LA Times

"Gently affecting and insightful."Variety

Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Program Running Time 96 min.

Films in Program

Directed By: Woody Allen
(USA, 2008, 96 mins, 35mm)

One of Allen’s best in recent times, this is a funny, wise movie about young Americans abroad, bohemia, sensuality, and the gaudy delights of Barcelona. Contrasting performances from Jamon, Jamon couple Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz complete the package.

"Vicky Cristina Barcelona trips along winningly, carried by the beauty of its locations and stars - and all the gauzy romanticism those enchanted places and people imply."Manohla Dargis, New York Times

"The actors are attractive, the city is magnificent, the love scenes don’t get all sweaty, and everybody finishes the summer a little wiser and with a lifetime of memories. What more could you ask?"Roger Ebert

Directed By: Dominic Dromgoole
(GB, 2014, 182 mins, DCP)

Bringing the pinnacle of English theatre to cinema audiences around the world, Globe on Screen presents brand new productions of Shakespeare’s plays presented in the famous Globe theatre in London, recreating the space and audience experience the Bard would have envisaged.

Shakespeare’s teasing, glittering, hilarious and amazingly inventive play showcases some of his most dazzling dramatic poetry with its seriousness only fleetingly glimpsed beneath the dreamlike surface.

"The Globe at its crowdpleasing best ... Hilarious and hearty."Time Out London

(USA, 2013, 98 mins, Blu-ray Disc)

Ricky likes lines, shapes, designs. So much so that he can’t quite decipher the more practical banalities we need to grasp to navigate safely from A to B. Autistic and alone on the New York subway, the 13 year old is trapped in a spiral of urban alienation and solipsism while his desperate mother forlornly searches the streets of Queens ahd Hurrican Sandy approaches…

"Wonderfully witty and understated ... A small miracle of a film."Stephen Holden, New York Times

"Fascinating and beautiful ... an impressionistic record of the subway experience circa exactly right now."Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice

"An exceptional film ... richly textured and fully engaging."Amy Taubin, Art Forum

Tim's Vermeer

Program Running Time 80 min.

Directed By: Teller
(USA, 2013, 80 mins, DCP)

Delving deeper into the art and mastery of Johannes Vermeer, this entertaining doc by the magician Teller casts a light on the researches of Tim Jenison, a video engineer obsessed with the idea that the painter used optical devices to craft his infinitely detailed canvases.

"Just about the most fun you can have while learning."Variety

"Thrilling."Wall Street Journal
