Shot in Baton Rogue on a small budget in a short amount of time, the somber new film Evan's Crime is a palpable passion project, the kind of movie that is pushed hard into existence by the sheer will of its makers. The film's commitment to itself, its characters, and its message is a true positive quality, even as its seams are frequently showing.
From executive producer Morgan Freeman comes THE C WORD, a bold new film that will forever change the way we view cancer. At its heart are powerful twin narratives: one from celebrated French neuroscientist and cancer revolutionary Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, the other from THE C WORD’s own director, Meghan O’Hara.
With a dose of good humor, heart, and a touch of rock-n’-roll beat, THE C WORD reveals the forces at play keeping us sick and dares to ask: if up to 70% of #cancer deaths are preventable … what are we waiting for? Screening at Cinema Village 11/25-12/1: https://is.gd/Hftn2i
If we can eliminate enemy threats without placing boots on a battlefield, then why not do so? That’s one of the unspoken questions raised, and largely unanswered, by “National Bird,” Sonia Kennebeck’s elegantly unsettling documentary about the United States’ reliance on aerial combat drones.
