"Feral" at 59E59 Theaters

Joe looks back at the town of his childhood. Bright, vibrant, and idyllic, the world resembles a haven of comfort. But as Joe journeys on, walls and lives are peeled back and the story of a community’s fall unfolds around him. Feral is an innovative piece of visual theater that combines puppetry, film, and live sound to create and destroy a world in front of its audience’s eyes. Puppeteers manipulate and bring to life a tiny world, whilst simultaneously creating a live animation, as they follow its every breath via digital camera.

"Posting Letters to the Moon" at 59E59 Theaters

Posting Letters To The Moon is a romantic, funny, and touching portrait of life during the early 1940s featuring readings of wartime letters between Oscar- nominated actress Celia Johnson (Brief Encounter) and her explorer and writer husband Peter Fleming (brother of James Bond creator Ian Fleming). Their daughter, Lucy Fleming, alongside her own husband, Simon Williams, reads these touching and amusing letters that tell of Celia’s experiences during the war: coping with a large isolated house full of evacuated children, learning to drive a tractor, dealing with rationing, holidays in Cornwall where she took to surfing, and all the while accepting offers, when she could get away, to act — for David Lean, Noël Coward, wartime propaganda films, and ultimately starring in the classic film Brief Encounter.

FIAF CineSalon: "Shéhérezade"

César Award Winner for Best First Feature Film, Most Promising Actress, and Most Promising Actor. Fresh out of juvenile detention and with nowhere to go, seventeen-year-old Zachary is back on his own, roaming the hard streets of Marseille again. Then he meets teen prostitute Shéhérazade and they fall madly, dangerously in love. With this astonishing feature debut based on true events and starring a cast of irresistible non-professionals, Jean-Bernard Marlin creates a searing portrait of urban decay and a lost generation, capturing a neon-lit nocturnal city crawling with gang members and drug dealers, a world as disturbing as it is romantic, and as violent as it is disarmingly tender.
