Willis (Lance Henriksen), an elderly, conservative and cantankerous man, is grappling with the early stages of dementia and struggling to run his isolated farm in upstate New York. His son John (Viggo Mortensen), brings him to California to stay with him and his husband while they make long term plans for his care. During his stay, Willis’s homophobic, xenophoic and misogynist tendencies are increasingly exacerbated by his memory loss, occasionally with humorous results, but primarily placing a painful strain on John as old wounds between him and his patriarchal father resurface.
In his assured and deeply personal debut as a writer/director, Mortensen deftly explores the bonds and fractures of a father son relationship, while drawing out a charged, career-best performance from Henriksen.
Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project
A fiercely intelligent, radical activist who became a fabulously wealthy recluse in her later years, Marion Stokes was dedicated to furthering and protecting the truth — so much so that she recorded American television 24 hours a day for over 30 years. Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project peels back the curtain on her life, through a mix of Stokes’ own archive of recordings and interviews with those who knew her best.
Spanning 70,000 videotapes that captured revolutions, lies, wars, triumphs, catastrophes, bloopers, talk shows, and commercials, Stokes’ visionary and maddening project nearly tore her family apart.

Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed, a visionary, trailblazing figure who, inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her, began in 1906 to reel out a series of huge, colourful, sensual, strange works without precedent in painting.
The subject of a recent smash retrospective at the Guggenheim Museum, af Klint was for years an all-but-forgotten figure in art historical discourse.
Her work inspired some most celebrated contemporary artists like Joseph Albers, Paul Klee, Cy Twombly, Andy Warhol, Mondrian, Kandinsky.
Raise Hell: The Life and Times of Molly Ivins

Her razor sharp wit left both sides of the aisle laughing, and craving ink in her columns. She knew the Bill of Rights was in peril, and said “polarizing people is a good way to win an election and a good way to wreck a country.” Molly’s words have proved prescient. Now it’s up to us all y’all to raise hell!
