Chlotrudis Tuesday Night at the Movies + Indie Film Round-Up, November 7 - 13

Hello, Chlotrudis Members!

I'm pretty excited about this week's Chlotrudis Tuesday Night at the Movies, so I do hope you can join me for Charlie Kaufman's directorial debut, SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Catherine Keener. As I'm sure you know, Kaufman is responsible for writing the films BEING JOHN MALKOVICH and ADAPTATION, so for this film is sure to be quite the ride. And those of us on the discussion list know that Marilyn has called it his version of a horror film. We'll be catching the 6:45 p.m. screening at the Kendall Square Cinema, with dinner beforehand at 5:15 p.m. (location to be determined).

For theater director Caden Cotard (Philip Seymour Hoffman), life catering to suburban blue-hairs at the local regional theater in Schenectady, New York is looking bleak. His wife (Catherine Keener) has left him to pursue her painting in Berlin. His therapist (Hope Davis) is better at plugging her best-seller than she is at counseling him. A new relationship with the alluringly candid Hazel (Samantha Morton) has prematurely run aground. And a mysterious condition is systematically shutting down each of his autonomic functions, one by one. Worried about the transience of his life, he leaves his home behind. He gathers an ensemble cast into a warehouse in New York City, hoping to create a work of brutal honesty. Co-starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Michelle Williams, Tom Noonan, Emily Watson and Dianne Wiest. Written and directed by Charlie Kaufman, screenwriter of ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND and BEING JOHN MALKOVICH.

Director: Charlie Kaufman
Cast: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Samantha Morton, Michelle Williams, Catherine Keener, Emily Watson, Dianne Wiest, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Hope Davis, Tom Noonan, Sadie Goldstein, Robin Weigert

The Boston Jewish Film Festival is in full swing! Celebrating its 20th year, the films in this year�s festival reflect a new generation�s exploration of age-old issues: the Holocaust, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and what it means to be Jewish in a non-Jewish world. Nor is the Festival short on comedic offerings. More than 35 filmmakers, actors, film subjects, musicians, introducers and panelists participate actively in this year�s Festival. The Festival screens at 9 locations this year: the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Coolidge Corner Theatre; the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Boston; the Kendall Square Cinema; and these suburban locations: AMC Framingham 16, Arlington Capitol Theatre, Hollywood Hits Premiere Theatres, Showcase Cinemas Randolph, and the West Newton Cinema.

The Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film (CSIF) is pleased to be part of the 20th annual Boston Jewish Film Festival, as a Community Partner during the festival�s anniversary year. Chlotrudis has already co-presented TWO LADIES (DANS LA VIE) on Thursday November 6th, and is also working to promote the film GOOD in its New England premiere, on Sunday November 9th. In GOOD, Viggo Mortensen plays German literature professor John Halder whose novel about compassionate euthanasia attracts the attention of Nazi officials and draws him into the Party circles. Halder is but one of millions of �good,� ordinary Germans living in a society spiralling out of moral control under the Nazi regime, and his story is both profound and damning. Its impact can be seen in the fate of his Jewish friend, Maurice, played by Jason Isaacs (�Bloodlines,� HARRY POTTER). GOOD will screen at 3:00pm Sunday the 9th at the Institute of Contemporary Art. Hope you can join us there!

Hey, Brattle supporters! Mark Sunday, November 16th on your calendars! That's the day Willem Dafoe comes to town for the 3rd Annual Brattle Gala.

Chlotrudis Monday Night at the Movies + Indie Film Round-up, October 31 - November 6

Hello, Chlotrudis Members!

So we all know that Tuesday night is Election Night, and we'll all be too wound up to go to the movies... so please join your hosts for this week, Gil and Amanda, for a Monday Night at the Movies that is already getting acclaim on the festival circuit. Kristen Scott Thomas stars in the French language film, I'VE LOVED YOU SO LONG. . We will be catching the 6:50pm screening at the Kendall Square Cinema on Monday, November 3. Dinner beforehand at the Cambridge Brewing Company, 5:30 p.m.

L�(Elsa Zylberstein) and Juliette (Kristin Scott Thomas) are sisters who are almost complete strangers to one other. Juliette has just been released from prison after serving a long sentence for the murder of her six-year-old son, and life together isn't easy for the estranged sisters. The world has moved on and Juliette often seems confused. Helped by some, such as the kindly but tactless social worker and her open-hearted but depressed parole officer (Fr�ric Pierrot), Juliette is also rejected by others, particularly employers who throw her out as soon as they find out what she did. But a huge question hangs over Juliette's renaissance. Why did she do such a terrible thing fifteen years ago? For all the others, it's a recurrent thought that they dare not put into words. And for Juliette, locked away in her secret, it's a burden to bear, which holds her back from engaging in her life and believing that she too has the right to be happy. (Fully subtitled)

Director: Philippe Claudel
Cast: Kristen Scott Thomas, Elsa Zylberstein, Serge Hazanavicius, Laurent Grevill, Fr�ric Pierrot, Lise S�r, Jean-Claude Arnaud, Mouss Zouheyri, Souad Mouchrik, Catherine Hosmalin Claire Johnston, Olivier Cruvellier

Toward the end of the week, The Boston Jewish Film Festival returns! Celebrating its 20th year, the films in this year�s festival reflect a new generation�s exploration of age-old issues: the Holocaust, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and what it means to be Jewish in a non-Jewish world. Nor is the Festival short on comedic offerings. More than 35 filmmakers, actors, film subjects, musicians, introducers and panelists participate actively in this year�s Festival. The Festival screens at 9 locations this year: the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Coolidge Corner Theatre; the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Boston; the Kendall Square Cinema; and these suburban locations: AMC Framingham 16, Arlington Capitol Theatre, Hollywood Hits Premiere Theatres, Showcase Cinemas Randolph, and the West Newton Cinema.

The Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film (CSIF) is pleased to be part of the 20th annual Boston Jewish Film Festival, as a Community Partner during the festival�s anniversary year. Chlotrudis will co-present two films: TWO LADIES (DANS LA VIE) on Thursday November 6th, and GOOD in its New England premiere, on Sunday November 9th. Set in contemporary France, TWO LADIES introduces us to a young Arab nurse who begins working as a private duty nurse to an elderly Jewish woman, while dealing with anti-Israeli anger in her own home. In this compelling story, director Phillipe Faucon offers hope that both religious and generational conflicts can be overlooked when needed. TWO LADIES will screen at 8:30pm Thursday the 6th at the Museum of Fine Arts. Hope you can join us there!

I am so excited about this week's Sunday Eye Opener! Swedish vampire film LET THE RIGHT ONE IN was my favorite movie at this year's Provincetown International Film Festival, and I've been thrilled with all the buzz it's been getting on the Festival circuit. To top it off, we gain an hour of sleep this weekend due to Daylight Savings, AND this week is a free screening, so what excuse do you have for not coming! While firmly a film with its roots in the horror genre, it is also a sweet and touching love story, and a painful coming-of-age story. And with the recent revelations that have emerged about the film recently, even on our very own discussion list, this one's sure to touch of a pretty wild discussion. Don't miss this film... I mean it!

See you at the Movies!
Michael

Chlotrudis Tuesday Night at the Movies + Indie Film Round-Up, October 24 - 30

Hello, Chlotrudis Members!

This week for the Chlotrudis Tuesday movie of the week, join Hilary to see Madonna's directorial debut, FILTH AND WISDOM at the Kendall Square Cinema on Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 7:20. The centerpiece of FILTH AND WISDOM is a strong performance by Eugene Hutz (EVERYTHING IS ILLUMINATED). If you want to contact Hilary about joining her for the film, her cell phone number is 617-953-4997.

Madonna's directing debut is a sprawling comedy about three mismatched London flatmates experiencing degradation while waiting for their dreams to come true. Ukrainian would-be pop singer A.K. (Eugene Hutz) flaunts an impressive mustache and expounds his philosophy of life: you can't achieve beauty without experiencing the gutter-and proceeds to demonstrate. A.K. earns a living by dressing up as a neo-Nazi and spanking men. He carries a weighty torch for his flatmate Holly (Holly Weston), a beautiful ballerina who, flat broke, tries a new career as a stripper and pole dancer. Also sharing the flat is Juliette (Vicky McClure), a pharmacy assistant so passionate about saving the world that she steals medicines to send to African orphans. Featuring the rowdy music of gypsy punk band Gogol Bordello (fronted by Hutz). Co-starring Richard E. Grant.

Director: Madonna
Cast: Eugene Hutz, Holly Weston, Vicky McClure, Richard E. Grant

The Brattle Theatre features an exclusive area premiere this week, the documentary FRONTRUNNERS. Grueling primaries, televised debates, newspaper endorsements, tense runoffs, questions of experience, charges of influence peddling, and considerable schmoozing... Elections don't get much tougher than this - especially in high school. Welcome to election season at Stuyvesant, NYC's public high school for gifted students. Director Caroline Suh & subject George Zisiadis will be in attendance for the Friday night show at 7:30 p.m. There are also a few new films opening up at the Kendall Square Cinema, most notably BREAKFAST WITH SCOT about two gay men, one a former professional hockey player, who must take care of the other's nephew when the boy's mother dies of a drug overdose. Scot is not what the two men expect, however, and favors diffused lighting, rouge and musicals. It's adorably cute and a little sentimental, but worth seeing.

See you at the Movies!

Chlotrudis Tuesday Night at the Movies + Indie Film Round-Up, October 17 - 23

Hello, Chlotrudis Members!

This week for the Chlotrudis Tuesday movie of the week, join Chris to see RACHEL GETTING MARRIED at the Coolidge on Tuesday, Oct. 21 at 7:30. RACHEL is the latest film from director Jonathan Demme. Please note that this particular show is also the Coolidge's monthly Off the Couch presentation, which will include a discussion afterwards, sponsored by the Boston Psychoanalytic Society. This discussion will be led by Steven Cooper, PhD. The show is regular price, so Chlotrudis members will still get the usual discount.

Rachel Getting Married
When Kym (Anne Hathaway) returns to the Buchman family home for the wedding of her sister Rachel (Rosemarie Dewitt), she brings a long history of personal crisis, family conflict and tragedy along with her. The wedding couple�s abundant party of friends and relations have gathered for a joyful weekend of feasting, music and love, but Kym�with her biting one-liners and flair for bombshell drama�is a catalyst for long-simmering tensions in the family dynamic. Filled with the rich and eclectic characters that remain a hallmark of Jonathan Demme�s films, RACHEL GETTING MARRIED paints a heartfelt, perceptive and sometimes hilarious family portrait. Director Jonathan Demme, first-time writer Jenny Lumet, and the stellar acting ensemble leaven the drama of these difficult but compelling people with wry affection and generosity of spirit.

dir. Jonathan Demme, w/ Hathaway, Dewitt, Bill Irwin, Anna Deavere Smith, and Debra Winger, 1h54m

Friday, October 17, 7 pm. EVENING TWO- WITH ASHLEY SABIN AND DAVID REDMON.
INTIMIDAD (2008), their latest feature documentary, is the result of several years following a young, poor Mexican couple who live across the border, as they search obsessively for a decent life�-work, a home, stability--for themselves and their child. This is a humbling, deeply moving, humanist documentary, a mini-sized The Grapes of Wrath.

Thursday, October 23, 7 pm. EVENING ONE-WITH MEL STUART.
The legendary Hollywood director of the original WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY (1971) is an equally legendary television documentarian. Tonight�s film, MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT 1960 (1963), winner of three Emmy�s, is the pioneering network documentary which dared look at an American presidential campaign with gloves off, warts and all, a probing, revealing study of John Kennedy�s victory over Richard Nixon, including the first prime-time debates.

Friday, October 24, 7 pm. EVENING TWO-WITH MEL STUART.
From black-and-white to color, that�s only one change in Mel Stuart�s radically altered vantage, two elections after, for tonight�s MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT 1968 (1969). The Robert Kennedy assassination, the riots in the streets of Chicago, Nixon�s revenge victory, and the War in Vietnam marching on.those are part of the non-fiction scenario for this amazing document, at its fortieth anniversary, of the most volatile Presidential election ever.

Chlotrudis Indie Film Wrap-Up, October 10 - 16

Hello, Chlotrudis Members!

The big release for this week is Jonathan Demme's RACHEL GETTING MARRIED, starring Ann Hathaway. If the synopsis sounds vaguely like last year's MARGOT AT THE WEDDING, that's not necessarily a bad thing (for me.) It was nomianted for the Golden Lion Award at the Venice International Film Festival. Demme has been focusing on bigger budget narratives and documentaries of late, so it could be interesting to see what he does with a smaller film.

If you're free Monday evening I recommend that you head out to the Harvard Film Archive to check out the new film by Lucretia Martel called THE HEADLESS WOMAN. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the Argentinian director will be at the Archive on Monday, but she will be around over the weekend as they play the first two films in her trilogy. Saturday kicks things off with LA CI�AGA, her debut feature, followed by THE HOLY GIRL on Sunday. Martel is a talented filmmaker to watch.

Beth Caldwell will be our host for next week's Movie of the Week, but she hasn't chosen her film yet, so watch for another message to follow. In addition, there will be no Sunday Eye Opener this week to accomodate some special events running at the Brattle. Stay tuned for next week's message about the Sunday Eye Opener!

See you at the Movies!
Michael

Garry Peary Presents the BU Cinematheque

The BU Cinematheque returns! Enjoy informal meetings with those who make films, and screenings of important, innovative films and videos, sponsored by the Film and Television Department, BU College of Communication. The evenings are programmed by Gerald Peary, a film studies professor at Suffolk University and a Boston Phoenix film critic. Screenings are held at the BU College of Communication, 640 Comm. Ave., Boston, Room B-05. Events are FREE to BU students and staff and their friends. Transportation: the �B� Boston College Green Line, the first stop at BU past Kenmore Square. Note 6 pm screening times on September 26, before the Presidential debate, and October 2, before the Vice Presidential debate.

Thursday, October 16, 7 pm. EVENING ONE�WITH ASHLEY SABIN AND DAVID REDMON.
These young, courageous, and socially committed documentarians from Dallas, Texas, have traversed the globe, from China to Mexico, telling stories of the dispossessed. Tonight�s film, KAMP KATRINA (2007), is a New Orleans-set, true story of a blue-collar couple who turn their back yard into a camp ground for lost people after Katrina destroyed the city. An American Dream utopia? A Bunuelian dystopia?

Friday, October 17, 7 pm. EVENING TWO- WITH ASHLEY SABIN AND DAVID REDMON.
INTIMIDAD (2008), their latest feature documentary, is the result of several years following a young, poor Mexican couple who live across the border, as they search obsessively for a decent life�-work, a home, stability--for themselves and their child. This is a humbling, deeply moving, humanist documentary, a mini-sized The Grapes of Wrath.

Thursday, October 23, 7 pm. EVENING ONE-WITH MEL STUART.
The legendary Hollywood director of the original WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY (1971) is an equally legendary television documentarian. Tonight�s film, MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT 1960 (1963), winner of three Emmy�s, is the pioneering network documentary which dared look at an American presidential campaign with gloves off, warts and all, a probing, revealing study of John Kennedy�s victory over Richard Nixon, including the first prime-time debates.

Friday, October 24, 7 pm. EVENING TWO-WITH MEL STUART.
From black-and-white to color, that�s only one change in Mel Stuart�s radically altered vantage, two elections after, for tonight�s MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT 1968 (1969). The Robert Kennedy assassination, the riots in the streets of Chicago, Nixon�s revenge victory, and the War in Vietnam marching on.those are part of the non-fiction scenario for this amazing document, at its fortieth anniversary, of the most volatile Presidential election ever.

Chlotrudis Monday Night at the Movies + Indie Film Round-Up, October 3 - 9

Hello, Chlotrudis Members!

I've been waiting for this one for a while, and this week, our hosts Gil and Amanda invite you to join them at the Loew's Theatre in Harvard Square to see BLINDNESS, this week's Chlotrudis Monday Night at the Movie. On Monday, May 6, 7 p.m. we will have the opportunity to see a film that Chlotrudis members have been buzzing about for months. Written by 2007's Body of Work Award-winner Don McKellar, who is also featured in the film, BLINDNESS is adapted from the novel by Nobel prize-winnter Jose Saramago and directed by Fernando Meirelles (THE CONSTANT GARDENER; CITY OF GOD). The film stars Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Danny Glover, Gael Garcia Bernal, Don, and many more. You don't want to miss it.

From Nobel Prize-winning author Jose Saramago and acclaimed director Fernando Meirelles (The Constant Gardener, City of God) comes the compelling story of humanity in the grip of an epidemic of mysterious blindness. It begins in a flash, as one man is instantaneously struck blind while driving home from work, his whole world suddenly turned to an eerie, milky haze. One by one, each person he encounters will in due course suffer the same unsettling fate. As the contagion spreads, and panic and paranoia set in across the city, the newly blind victims of the "White Sickness" are rounded up and quarantined within a crumbling, abandoned mental asylum, where all semblance of ordinary life begins to break down. But inside the quarantined hospital, there is a secret eyewitness: one woman (Julianne Moore) who has not been affected but has pretended she is blind in order to stay beside her beloved husband (Mark Ruffalo). Armed with increasing courage and the will to survive, she will lead a makeshift family of seven people on a journey, through horror and love, depravity and beauty, warfare and wonder, to break out of the hospital and into the devastated city where they may be the only hope left.

Director: Fernando Meirelles

Cast: Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Alice Braga, Yusuke Iseya, Yoshino Kimura, Don McKellar, Maury Chaykin, Danny Glover, Gael Garc�Bernal

This Sunday we offer a special opportunity to see two new films from one acclaimed indie director! Wayne Wang, director of SMOKE, EAT A BOWL OF TEA and THE JOY LUCK CLUB, returns to the realm of the art film with A THOUSAND YEARS OF GOOD PRAYERS and THE PRINCESS OF NEBRASKA, two films adapted from stories by Chinese-American author Yiyun Li. Family ties bind us together in visceral ways, but the forces of modern life often seem to drive parents and children apart. In A THOUSAND YEARS OF GOOD PRAYERS, elderly Mr. Shi, a widower and a retired scientist, has arrived from Beijing to spend time with his divorced daughter, Yilan. At first prying and lecturing, Mr. Shi eventually discovers more about his daughter's life and, after a difficult confrontation, find common ground to build a new understanding of each other on. In PRINCESS OF NEBRASKA, Sasha, a Chinese exchange student in Nebraska, is pregnant after a one-night stand with Yang, a young man she knew briefly in Beijing. She departs for San Francisco, where she plans to get an abortion. But the characters she meets there, including a man who was Yang's former lover and a flirtatious bar hostess, offer her a glimpse at the possibility of another outcome for herself and her child. This film will not be released theatrically but will feature an unprecendented debut on YouTube! Both films will start at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, and each is less than 90 minutes long. Don't miss this terrific opportunity to see a pair of new films by an accomplished filmmaker.

Also opening this week is last week's Sunday Eye Opener, the Bill Maher opinion piece, RELIGULOUS. If you are a fan of Michael Cera's George Michael on "Arrested Development," or Paulie Bleecker from JUNO, you won't want to miss him in NICK AND NORAH'S INFINITED PLAYLIST which opens today. Ed Harris returns to the director's chair for a modern western called APPALOOSA.

The 7th Annual Boston Latino International Film Festival kicks off tonight at the Harvard Film Archive. BLIFF presents the latest films produced by Latinos and the latest films dealing pertaining to social issues of Latino communities in the US and Latin America. The festival also focuses on alternative films with social content from Latin America in addition to films addressing with Latino issues in the United States. The majority of films are playing at the Harvard Film Archive, including tonight's pair of features that open the festival, MALDEAMORES (LOVESICKNESS) and PARTES USADAS (USED PARTS). Other venues include 80 Border Street Cultural Exchange Center, and Boston Universities GSU Auditorium. BLIFF runs through October 12; check their website for the full schedule.

BRATTLE THEATRE AND CHLOTRUDIS PRESENT 9TH SEMESTER OF SUNDAY �EYE-OPENER� FILM SERIES

The CHLOTRUDIS SOCIETY FOR INDEPENDENT FILM (CSIF), in conjunction with the BRATTLE FILM FOUNDATION, begins its latest semester of The Sunday Eye-Opener at 11am Sunday, September 28th at the historic art-house theatre in the heart of Cambridge�s Harvard Square.

As well as the latest independent releases coming to town, the Sunday Eye-Opener features cutting-edge films that are seeking distribution, classic re-releases, and the work of local filmmakers. Previous semesters� highlights include HARD CANDY with Ellen Page, THE PROPOSITION, Andrew Bujalski�s MUTUAL APPRECIATION, documentaries TARNATION and JESUS CAMP, and an early Ingmar Bergman classic, SMILES OF A SUMMER NIGHT.

Brattle executive director Ivy Moylan and Chlotrudis president Michael Colford provide introductory notes and context, and afterwards lead the audience discussion. In past seasons screenings have included the filmmaker or a guest presenter from the local film community. Come early for the complimentary coffee and pastries, stay late for the often spirited post-film conversation. Weekly admission is $10, while the 8-week series price is $50 for the general public, $30 for members of the Brattle or Chlotrudis, or the incredible price of $20 for members of both groups. Join the Eye Opener email list at the Brattle�s webpage, www.brattlefilm.org /brattlefilm/contact.

The Brattle Film Foundation runs the Brattle Theatre, dubbed �Boston�s unofficial film school.� The Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film is a Boston-based non-profit group devoted to honoring and supporting independent and foreign films and their audiences. For over a decade, the group has worked with film festivals, local art-houses and theatres, production companies, and others to bring creative, quality films to the attention of audiences and film-lovers. Check http://www.chlotrudis.org for announcements of upcoming events, and for regular weekly independent film listings.

Chlotrudis Tuesday Night at the Movies + Indie Film Round-Up, September 26 - October 2

Hello, Chlotrudis Members!

Lots going on at the Brattle Theatre this weekend, but we've also got a Chlotrudis Tuesday Night at the Movies on tap at the Coolidge Corner Theatre. Please join me for the 7:30 screening of CHOKE on Tuesday, September 30. CHOKE is the directorial debut of Boston-born actor (LOVELY & AMAZING; STATE AND MAIN; MAGNOLIA) Clark Gregg, who wrote the screenplay based upon the novel by Chuck Palahniuk.

CHOKE
directed by Clark Gregg
starring Sam Rockwell, Anjelica Huston, Kelly Macdonald, Brad Williams Henke, Clark Gregg, Bijou Phillips, Gillian Jacobs, Jonah Bobo, Paz de la Huerta, Viola Harris, Joel Grey
Based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club), CHOKE is a deliciously deranged dark comedy about mothers and sons, sexual compulsion, and the sordid underbelly of Colonial theme parks. Victor Mancini (Sam Rockwell), a sex-addicted med-school dropout, who keeps his increasingly deranged mother, Ida (Anjelica Huston), in an expensive private medical hospital by working days as a historical reenactor at a Colonial Williamsburg theme park. At night Victor runs a scam by deliberately choking in upscale restaurants to form parasitic relationships with the wealthy patrons who �save� him. When, in a rare lucid movement, Ida reveals that she has withheld the shocking truth of his father�s identity, Victor enlists the aid of his best friend, Denny (Brad William Henke) and his mother�s beautiful attending physician, Dr. Paige Marshall (Kelly Macdonald), to solve the mystery before the truth of his possibly divine parentage is lost forever.

This Sunday is a busy day for the Brattle Theatre. Things kick-off with the return of the much beloved Sunday Eye-Opener, co-presented by Chlotrudis and the Brattle. We are kicking off our Fall Eye Opener series with a really fun (and funny) sneak preview: Larry Charles' (BORAT) newest film RELIGULOUS starring Bill Maher. Eye Opener subscribers will get preferred seating at this screening. RSVP directly to iVY (ivy@brattlefilm.org) by Friday, September 26 at 6:00 PM to reserve your seat and enroll for the Fall. Each week we will screen an unreleased or undistributed film - so all screenings are sneak previews - hand selected by the Brattle Film Foundation and the Chlotrudis Society for Independent Film. Ivy will send out an email announcing the film to those people who have subscribed to the Eye Opener email list each Wednesday, and the film will usually be announced here each week as well. The Eye Opener series runs for 9 weeks, and the cost for a subscription of all 9 films is $30 for members of Chlotrudis or the Brattle; $20 for members of both organizations, and $50 for everyone else. We would love to see this series continue to grow! Please feel free to spread the word about this series. RELIGULOUS is a film directed by Larry Charles and starring American political comedian Bill Maher, host of Real Time With Bill Maher on HBO. According to Maher, the title of the film is a portmanteau derived from the words "religion" and "ridiculous," implying the satirical nature of the documentary that is meant to mock the concept of religion and the problems it brings about. The fun kicks off at 11am Sunday morning, September 28, so don't miss it!

Also on Sunday, September 28, The Brattle Film Foundation will host its fifth annual ART HOUSE, a silent auction featuring artworks by some of Greater Boston's best and brightest artistic talent. This event is tailored to both casual and seasoned art enthusiasts alike, with art pieces worth more than $1,000 dollars sometimes selling for as little as $100. For the fifth anniversary event, ART HOUSE will enjoy a new, larger venue at the Longy School of Music Concert Hall in Harvard Square. This year's event features an expanded list of artists & artwork, and video art by Lumen Eclipse, Harvard Square's very own cutting edge art venue. Don't miss this art-packed extravaganza where there is something for everyone! The bidding begins at 7pm and closes at 8:30pm so don't arrive late! Space is limited to purchase your tickets early! General admission $15.00; Brattle and WGBH members $12.00. Cash bar and tasty treats with admission; catering by Whole Foods, beer donated by Harpoon Brewery. Click here to preview the artwork and purchase tickets.

Also at the very busy Brattle this week is an exclusive area premiere of the documentary BEAUTIFUL LOSERS. In the 1990s a loosely organized group of forward thinking artists gathered around New York City's Alleged Gallery. Inspired by street culture, hiphop, graffiti, skateboarding, indie-rock and a DIY aesthetic, this group has gone on to influence much of the art hitting galleries and museums - not to mention boutiques and cinemas - today. This documentary depicts, with characteristic playfulness, the various boundary-defying artists, filmmakers, and designers involved in this scene including Harmony Korine, Mike Mills, Margaret Kilgallen, Shepard Fairey, Barry McGee, Ed Templeton, and others. A stated goal of director, and Alleged Gallery owner, Aaron Rose is to have this film inspire those who see it to 'make something from nothing' and it does an admirable job of depicting the ups and downs of carving out a life from the art world. BEAUTIFUL LOSERS plays Friday - Tuesday at the Brattle.

Another pair of documentaries worth mentioning that are opening this week are FLOW, winner of the Audience Award at the Provincetown International Film Festival, and TROUBLE THE WATER, winner of the Grand Jury Prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival. In FLOW, director Irena Salina reveals the emerging global catastrophe surrounding our water: African plumbers reconnect shantytown water pipes under cover of darkness to ensure a community's survival; a Californian scientist forces awareness of shockingly toxic public water sources; a CEO argues privatization is the wave of the future; a Canadian author uncovers corporate profiteering. FLOW opens today at the Kendall Square Cinema. TROUBLE THE WATER takes us inside Hurricane Katrina in a way never before seen on screen. Incorporating remarkable home video footage shot by Kimberly Rivers Roberts�an aspiring rap artist trapped with her husband in the 9th Ward�Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine producers Tia Lessin and Carl Deal weave this insider's view of Katrina with a devastating portrait of the hurricane's aftermath. TROUBLE THE WATER opens today at the Coolidge Corner Theatre.

This weekend The Newburyport Documentary Film Festival celebrates its 5th year at the Newburyport Screening Room and the Firehouse Center for the Arts. 15 documentaries over three days celebrate the art of the documentary, including HERE, KITTY, KITTY; ELEGY FOR THE ELSWICK ENVOY; KATRINA'S CHILDREN; and WEINER TAKES All. The Newburyport Documentary Fim Festival is presented by the Newburyport Film Society, a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing the Festival and a wide range of film experiences to audiences on the seacoast.

See you at the movies!

Emerson filmmaking professor Todd offers an evening of his dense, sensual, uncompromising experimental shorts, which are ecological, philosophical, and, though abstract, absorbed with the key questions of the meaning of life and death, and how one spends one�s short time on earth. Also, pay rapt attention to Todd�s extraordinarily textured soundtracks!

Thursday, October 2, 6 pm. AN EVENING WITH VERNA BLOOM.
Bloom, a BU graduate, has acted in the films of Martin Scorsese, starred in the cult western, THE HIRED HAND, and is beloved forever for her raunchy, funny role in NATIONAL LAMPOON'S ANIMAL HOUSE. At BU, she shows her most esteemed part, in Haskell Wexler�s MEDIUM COOL (1969) as a single mother thrust into the police violence at the 1968 Democratic Convention.

Friday, October 3, 7 pm. AN EVENING WITH JAY COCKS.
He�s the acclaimed screenwriter of Martin Scorsese�s THE AGE OF INNOCENCE and GANGS OF NEW YORK. For BU, Cocks has chosen to show a more controversial work, Kathryn Bigelow�s STRANGE DAYS, with Ralph Fiennes and Angela Bassett, a futurist action picture which he co-scripted with James Cameron, and which, Cocks recalls, was booed at its 1995 New York Film Festival premiere.

Thursday, October 16, 7 pm. EVENING ONE�WITH ASHLEY SABIN AND DAVID REDMON.
These young, courageous, and socially committed documentarians from Dallas, Texas, have traversed the globe, from China to Mexico, telling stories of the dispossessed. Tonight�s film, KAMP KATRINA (2007), is a New Orleans-set, true story of a blue-collar couple who turn their back yard into a camp ground for lost people after Katrina destroyed the city. An American Dream utopia? A Bunuelian dystopia?

Friday, October 17, 7 pm. EVENING TWO- WITH ASHLEY SABIN AND DAVID REDMON.
INTIMIDAD (2008), their latest feature documentary, is the result of several years following a young, poor Mexican couple who live across the border, as they search obsessively for a decent life�-work, a home, stability--for themselves and their child. This is a humbling, deeply moving, humanist documentary, a mini-sized The Grapes of Wrath.

Thursday, October 23, 7 pm. EVENING ONE-WITH MEL STUART.
The legendary Hollywood director of the original WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY (1971) is an equally legendary television documentarian. Tonight�s film, MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT 1960 (1963), winner of three Emmy�s, is the pioneering network documentary which dared look at an American presidential campaign with gloves off, warts and all, a probing, revealing study of John Kennedy�s victory over Richard Nixon, including the first prime-time debates.

Friday, October 24, 7 pm. EVENING TWO-WITH MEL STUART.
From black-and-white to color, that�s only one change in Mel Stuart�s radically altered vantage, two elections after, for tonight�s MAKING OF THE PRESIDENT 1968 (1969). The Robert Kennedy assassination, the riots in the streets of Chicago, Nixon�s revenge victory, and the War in Vietnam marching on.those are part of the non-fiction scenario for this amazing document, at its fortieth anniversary, of the most volatile Presidential election ever.

Chlotrudis Tuesday Night at the Movies + Indie Film Round-Up, September 19 - 25

Hello, Chlotrudis Members!

We're baaaack! That's right, the Chlotrudis Movie of the Week took the summer off but is back now, so dust off your movie viewing glasses and join us at the theatre once again. This time around the Chlotrudis Board of Directors will be taking turns selecting the films and hosting the event. To kick things off, Chris (that's him on the right in case you don't know what he looks like) has selected MOMMA'S MAN. This darkly comic effort from director Azazel Jacobs played at IFF Boston and features performances from his own parents, Flo Jacobs and legendary experimental filmmaker Ken Jacobs. Join Chris at the Kendall Square Cinema on Tuesday at 7:05 for this sure-to-be-unusual film.

Writer/director Azazel Jacobs chronicles the increasingly anxious dilemma of Mikey (Matt Boren), a young husband and father who stops off at his parents' loft during a business trip to New York and finds himself emotionally unable to leave. Unsure of his own motivations, he makes up excuses about why he�s staying. While his doting mother (Flo Jacobs, the director�s mother) is more than happy to enable his procrastination, his father (Azazel�s father, venerable avant-garde filmmaker Ken Jacobs) grows suspicious of his son�s change of plans. Ignoring their concern, Mikey moves back into his old room. He immerses himself in childhood memorabilia, dodges his wife�s panicked voicemails, and even attempts to resurrect old neighborhood buddies. But as his life builds to a darkly comic pitch, this young father realizes that he must choose between life as it is and life as it was. An acutely perceptive, deeply personal take on a universal experience: the fear of growing up.
Director: Azazel Jacobs
Cast: Matt Boren, Flo Jacobs, Ken Jacobs, Richard Edson, Dana Varon, Nan Arcilesi, Eleanor Hutchins, Piero Arcilesi
Run Time: 1hr 34mins

The Brattle Theatre presents an exclusive area premiere this week with SECRECY. Harvard professors Robb Moss and Peter Galison deliver this thoroughly engaging documentary about the history of government secrecy in the United States. Using a combination of interviews, archival and artistic footage and interweaving multiple storylines, SECRECY paints an at-times disturbing picture that still manages to touch compellingly on all sides of the issue. Though an emphasis is put on the damage done by and consequences of keeping secrets, there is considerable attention given to the benefit of the various 'Alphabet Agencies' and the sensible use of the Top Secret stamp. Touching on events from the military incidents that helped to create many of the laws governing state secrets to Pearl Harbor to 9/11, Guantanamo, Iraq and beyond, SECRECY's strength lies in its ability to combine facts and figures with dramatic stories and characters - notably military lawyer Lt. Cmdr. Charles Swift who successfully defended Gitmo prisoner Salim Hamdan. The directors will be present at select screenings.

On September 28, 2008, The Brattle Film Foundation will host its fifth annual ART HOUSE, a silent auction featuring artworks by some of Greater Boston's best and brightest artistic talent. This event is tailored to both casual and seasoned art enthusiasts alike, with art pieces worth more than $1,000 dollars sometimes selling for as little as $100. For the fifth anniversary event, ART HOUSE will enjoy a new, larger venue at the Longy School of Music Concert Hall in Harvard Square. This year's event features an expanded list of artists & artwork, and video art by Lumen Eclipse, Harvard Square's very own cutting edge art venue. Don't miss this art-packed extravaganza where there is something for everyone! The bidding begins at 7pm and closes at 8:30pm so don't arrive late! Space is limited to purchase your tickets early! General admission $15.00; Brattle and WGBH members $12.00. Cash bar and tasty treats with admission; catering by Whole Foods, beer donated by Harpoon Brewery. Click here to preview the artwork and purchase tickets.

Stay tuned! One of Chlotrudis' most loved programs returns in a couple of weeks! The Sunday Eye Opener, co-presented by the Brattle Theatre, is a sneak-preview film and discussion series that takes place every Sunday morning at 11 a.m. for eight weeks. This season's session begins on Sunday, September 28. Watch this space to find out what film will kick things off.
