In the wake of legalization of gay marriage in her home state of New York, filmmaker Becca Roth is plagued by the fact that the majority of states in America currently have constitutional amendments banning gay marriage, including every state in the South. Except one. When she finds out that residents in North Carolina are gearing up to vote on one of the most restrictive marriage amendments in the country, she and her girlfriend Melina travel there to try to understand individuals on both sides and start a dialogue.

Dir. Becca Roth
(USA, 2014, 102 min)

Followed by a conversation with the filmmaker.

Maryla Michalowski-Dyamant, born in Poland, survived Ravensbrück, Malchow, and Auschwitz, where she was the forced translator of the “Angel of Death,” Dr. Mengele. She dedicated her post-war life to publicly speaking about her survival to the younger generations, so that it would never be forgotten or repeated. In this documentary film, Alice and Serena—her daughter and granddaughter—explore how Maryla’s fight against intolerance can continue today in a world where survivors are disappearing and intolerance, racism, and antisemitism are on the rise.

Screening followed by Q&A with Serena Dykman

Dir. Ela Thier (USA, 2016, 95 min.)

Shaina is a historian who lives 600 years in the future. Humans have cleaned up the planet. War, poverty, pollution, greed, exploitation, depression, and loneliness are things that she’s only read about in history books. She has never, in the flesh, seen humans hurt other humans- until now. While in the company of a group of physicists who experiment with time travel, Shaina is accidentally left stranded in the year 2015. Here she becomes involved with a group of friends who are as lovable as they are flawed. As the harsh realities of their lives unfold, she learns what no history book could have taught her. While most futuristic films depict a dystopia that is even colder and more mechanical than our own, this film takes a bold departure from the sci-fi genre by exploring the possibility of a future in which caring and compassion govern our societies.

"Thier's sensibility offers such a welcome break... inviting audiences to see our modern-day world through fresh eyes." - Variety
