Synopsis:

She is small, but dangerous. Wherever Benni ends up, she is immediately expelled. The wild 9-year- old girl has already become what child protection services call a “system crasher”. And she is certainly not looking to change her ways. Because Benni has one single goal: to be back at home with her mommy! But Bianca is scared of her own daughter. Mrs. Bafané from child protection services is trying her best to find a permanent placement for Benni. She hires the anger management trainer Micha as Benni’s school escort and suddenly there is a seed of hope. Will Micha be able to succeed where all others despaired? While being acutely authentic, first-time director Nora Fingscheidt transcends a psychological study and crafts vibrant, visceral and emotional cinema, which evokes unforgettable performances.

Suffragettes in the Silent Cinema
No charge. Donations welcome.

Following the movement into the "modern age,” this documentary—which contains clips from a variety of silent films—is a time capsule from the dawn of women's suffrage as a mass movement. It looks at how the new medium of film was used for messaging by anti-suffragists and suffragists alike. Director, historian and novelist Kay Sloan will introduce the film via Skype; the discussion afterwards will be led by Jyotika Virdi, professor of Cinema Studies at the University of Windsor in Ontario.

The Hirschfield International Film Series Presents: Varda by Agnès

The Hirschfield International Film Series Presents: Varda by Agnès

The Hirschfield International Film Series presents Varda by Agnès. In French and English with English subtitles.

Two showings: 3-5pm & 8-10pm

(Agnés Varda, France, 2019, 1h 55min) Free

Synopsis:

The final film from the late, beloved Agnès Varda is a characteristically playful, profound, and personal summation of the director’s own brilliant career. At once impish and wise, Varda acts as our spirit guide on a free-associative tour through her six-decade artistic journey, shedding new light on her films, photography, and recent installation works while offering her one-of-a-kind reflections on everything from filmmaking to feminism to aging. Suffused with the people, places, and things she loved—Jacques Demy, cats, colors, beaches, heart-shaped potatoes—this wonderfully idiosyncratic work of imaginative autobiography is a warmly human, touchingly bittersweet parting gift from one of cinema’s most luminous talents.
