7:15 pm | 2 hrs | R – The Documentary program deals with global political issues – the refugee crisis, the education of girls and women in Afghanistan, activism in Ferguson MO. Very strong doc program this year.

Oscar Nominated Short Films: ANIMATION

2:30 pm | 2 hrs | Ratings guidelines: Animated Shorts: PG-13. The themes tackled in this year’s Animated program are quite heavy – the death of a parent, Alzheimer’s, China’s one child policy, and more. The program overall is rather melancholy, and while there’s nothing especially objectionable within, most of these shorts will not appeal to children under 12, at all. The films are all very good, but adult audiences will appreciate them much more than kids.

Oscar Nominated Short Films: LIVE ACTION

Inside Peace

7:15 pm | $7/$5 members

Focused on several hardened offenders doing time at Dominguez State Jail, Inside Peace offers a rare look, not only inside the correctional facility, but inside the hearts and minds of the men featured. The film is the winner of several film festival awards, including three for Best Documentary, two Humanitarian awards and two Audience Choice awards.

Though many in society, law enforcement and the criminal justice system may have given up on them, this film poses the larger question of whether the men have given up on themselves and whether they can change – inside. At the core of the film is the Peace Class the men attend, initially as an excuse to get free pencils, paper and an hour of air conditioning in the sweltering heat of San Antonio, Texas. Eventually, though, it is their minds and spirits that become refreshed, through exposure to concepts such as reflection, inner strength and the possibility of real change – from the inside out.

LIVE! ON STAGE JONATHAN RICHMAN featuring TOMMY LARKINS on the drums!

Doors open @ 7:00 pm | $20

advance tickets: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2596209

Jonathan Richman has been writing songs, making records and performing live for most of his life, winning fans and making friends around the world with his guileless honesty and playfully catchy compositions. He’s revered by countless fellow artists, and has built a remarkably loyal international audience through his tireless touring. His deceptively straightforward songs embody timeless qualities of humanity, optimism, emotional insight and a boundless sense of humor, untainted by cynicism or transient notions of hipness.

The records that Jonathan Richman has made over the past 30 years have long held a special place in the hearts of his fans. He began playing guitar at the age of 15, and in the early 1970s formed the Modern Lovers, whose raw, minimalist sound and emotionally forthright songs helped to lay the groundwork for punk rock. But by the time the group’s landmark debut album (including the much-covered “Road Runner,” a Top Five single in Europe) was released in 1976, Jonathan had already moved on to a quieter sound and a gentler lyrical focus. Since then, he’s continued to record and tour prolifically, first with a series of Modern Lovers lineups, later on his own, and eventually as a duo with drummer Tommy Larkins. Over the years, Jonathan’s music has absorbed a multitude of influences, from doo-wop to country to a variety of international styles, without sacrificing the artist’s effervescent personality.

Sunday Silents Presents Daughter of the Dawn (1920)

3:00 pm | $7/$5 members | 1 hr 20 min | 1920 | Western | with live music by Marta Waterman

Rosendale Theatre presents DAUGHTER OF THE DAWN, a touching story of Native American life in the 19th century, recently restored and seen for the first time in almost 100 years. As one of the only silent feature films starring a Native American cast, DAUGHTER OF THE DAWN broke new ground when it was released and faced a wide range of challenges throughout its production.

The film was produced by Richard Banks, who had met Norbert A. Myles, a seasoned actor of vaudeville and short subjects, on a movie set in 1916. At that time, he began to recruit Myles’ as-of-yet unproved directorial talents for a film Banks had long aspired to make, one based on an old Comanche legend.

Filming took place at the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge near Lawton, Oklahoma, in the summer of 1920. The story of DAUGHTER OF THE DAWN revolves around different tribes, a hunt for buffalo, and a love triangle. The film is especially interesting to audiences today because of its authentic portrayal of Native American life and legends.

7:15 | 2 hours, 13 minutes | PG-13 | Drama, Romance

DreamWorks Pictures’ “The Light Between Oceans” is a heart-breaking drama about fate, love, moral dilemmas and the lengths to which one couple will go to see their dreams realized.

Dance Film Sundays Presents Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty

3:00 pm | $12/$10 members/$6 children

Always dazzlingly theatrical, British choreographer Matthew Bourne does it again with Sleeping Beauty. Captured live at the Hippodrome (Birmingham, England) in HD in 2013. Bourne’s haunting new scenario is a gothic fairy tale for all ages. Although the beloved Tschaikovsky score remains the same, the traditional tale of good vs. evil and rebirth is turned upside-down, creating a supernatural love story, across the decades. Running time is 105 minutes.

Petipa’s Beauty premiered in 1890—the year Bourne chose to begin his version of the story. It opens with the christening of the heroine Princess Aurora. It was the Fin-de-Siecle period when fairies, vampires and decadent opulence fed the gothic imagination. As Aurora grows into a young woman, we move forward in time to the more rigid, uptight Edwardian era; a mythical Downton Abbey golden age of long summer afternoons, croquet on the lawn and new dance crazes. Years later, awakening from her century long slumber, Aurora finds herself in the modern day, a world more mysterious and wonderful than any fairy story!

Tales of the Hudson Valley

11:00 am | $10/$10 members/$6 children| 1 hour | Live performance

Orange and red leaves crush under foot, the aroma of baking apples and pumpkin bread fills the air, and our hearts thrill at memories from crisp autumn days past.

“Tales” is made to delight the entire family.

Washington Irving, America’s first man of letters, wrote these classic stories set in the Hudson Valley. Local theater artist Ann Citron directs the performance, which was adapted by playwright Edward Versailles. Back by popular demand, “Tales” has become an annual autumn tradition—like apple picking and enjoying our brilliant foliage. Three actors play a total of 22 different characters, which is a very entertaining concept in itself.

In 1945 Poland, a young French Red Cross doctor who is sent to assist the survivors of the German camps discovers several nuns in advanced states of pregnancy during a visit to a nearby convent. Warsaw, December 1945: the second World War is finally over and Mathilde is treating the last of the French survivors of the German camps. When a panicked Benedictine nun appears at the clinic one night begging Mathilde to follow her back to the convent, what she finds there is shocking: a holy sister about to give birth and several more in advanced stages of pregnancy. A non-believer, Mathilde enters the sisters’ fiercely private world, dictated by the rituals of their order and the strict Rev. Mother (Agata Kulesza, Ida). Fearing the shame of exposure, the hostility of the new anti-Catholic Communist government, and facing an unprecedented crisis of faith, the nuns increasingly turn to Mathilde as their belief and traditions clash with harsh realities.

Going Furthur

7:15 pm | Documentary

Fifty years after the iconic first Trip, Ken Kesey’s son Zane took the Furthur Bus – and his father’s legacy- back on the road, for its longest running tour in history. Armed with a new band of Merry Pranksters, the Furthur bus traveled over 15,000 miles in 75 days, riding into music festivals, community events, tribal gatherings and national landmarks, reestablishing itself as a symbol of radical self-expression and cultural revolution all across the country.

Through archive footage as well as over 400 hours of film, we explore the roots of a culture birthed in the early sixties, and how the mission of those first few idealists have influenced a new generation. This is an on-the-ground account of how Ken Kesey, the pranksters and the acid tests helped to generate a non-conformist society of freethinkers, artists and altruists who are now pushing the evolutionary envelope of human potential.

With eternal curiosity, razor-sharp intellect, and existential longing, Gold is a culinary geographer taking us where no critic has gone before.

Profiled

7:15 pm | 53 minutes | The director, Kathleen Foster, and others, will be present for a discussion following the movie.

PROFILED knits the stories of mothers of black and Latin youth murdered by the NYPD into a powerful indictment of racial profiling and police brutality, and places them within a historical context of the roots of racism in the U.S. Some of the victims—Eric Garner, Michael Brown—are now familiar the world over. PROFILED bears witness to the racist violence that remains an everyday reality for black and Latin people in this country and gives us a window into one of the burning issues of our time. Since the much-publicized death of Amadou Diallo in 1999, more than 300 Black and Latin youths have died in shootings by the NYPD. Today communities nationwide are demanding accountability for the rampant casualties and continuing racial inequalities. The time to face these systemic inequities as a society is now.

When the vitality of our subtle bodies and organs are elevated, life takes on a refined and beautiful quality. The Golden Orb is a deeply nourishing form of chi that would normally be reserved within the elite Inner Circles of Taoist practitioners and not shared with the public.

DEAR PRESIDENT OBAMA, The Clean Energy Revolution Is Now

7:15 pm | $7/$5 members | 1 hr 50 min

Filmmakers and journalists have been working on the film for nearly three years, filming in more than twenty states and conducting more than 120 interviews. Narrated by actor and activist Mark Ruffalo, the film is a direct appeal to President Obama as he shapes his environmental legacy, but it is also a very loud shout-out to every elected official in the country to carefully consider the growing evidence that proves that leaving fossil fuels in the ground is the only reasonable energy path forward.

Since 2008, under President Obama’s watch, the drilling and fracking industries have boomed across the United States. Today more than twenty million people live within a mile of at least one oil or gas well. Pro-drillers contended this rush would create a newfound “energy independence” in the U.S. In fact, as oil and gas prices have plummeted in the past year forcing industry to shut down rigs and lay off workers, in fact all the boom did was slow progress towards investing in new renewable energy sources.

The film takes a cross-country look at drilling, highlighting its variety of contaminations, the stories of its victims, the false promise of an economic boom, with a focus on clean energy solutions that would allow us to proceed towards a future that does not rely on yet another dirty fossil fuel extraction process. Interviews with scientists, economists, health professionals, geologists and whistle-blowers provide the core information we think will convince the current President and those that will follow to join the “anti-drilling” majority growing across the United States and call for fossil fuels to be left where they belong, in the ground.

An Oceans 8 Film, Written and Directed by Jon Bowermaster and Narrated by Mark Ruffalo.

“ Amen!” Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater in the internationally beloved “Revelations,” served-up with “Chroma” (Wayne McGregor), “Grace,” (Ronald K. Brown), and “Takademe” (Robert Battle), is coming to Rosendale Theatre in their newly released HD presentation to be screened for the first time in the Hudson Valley. This electrifying show, shot with 5 cameras and thrillingly edited, was captured in June 2015 at David H. Koch Theater, New York City for Lincoln Center at the Movies: Great American Dance.

The film opens with Wayne McGregor’s sumptuous “Chroma,” set to a score by Joby Talbot with orchestrations of songs by The White Stripes; it is a contemporary ballet full of sensory surprises, sumptuous movement, rock music played by an orchestra, and a luminous set by minimalist architect John Pawson. Next on the bill is one of the most popular works in the Ailey repertory: “Grace,” choreographed by Ron K. Brown, a powerful meeting of modern and West African dance with a soundtrack by Duke Ellington, Roy Davis and Fela Kuti which spellbindingly depicts individuals on a journey to the Promised Land. Ailey’s Artistic Director Robert Battle gives a very interesting interview; and then you will see his “Takademe” which mixes humor and high-flying movement in a savvy deconstruction of Indian Kathak dance rhythms. The presentation closes with an iconic masterpiece of American dance, Alvin Ailey’s “Revelations,” described by The New York Times as “one of the great works of the human spirit.” This stunning, soulful tour de force draws on African-American spirituals, song-sermons, gospel songs and holy blues. It is a very popular program performed by one of America’s most popular dance ensembles. – See more at: http://www.greatamericandance.com/AlvinAiley/#sthash.cO1lupnG.dpuf Recognized by U.S. Congressional resolution as a vital American “Cultural Ambassador to the World,” Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater grew from a now-fabled first performance in March 1958 that changed forever the perception of American dance.

When the beloved Yiddish writer Sholem Aleichem —creator of the book and characters on which Fiddler on the Roof is based —died 100 years ago, his last will and testament asked for his fans to honor his memory with annual readings of his works, in whatever language.

Mustang

7:15 pm | $7/$5 members | Turkish with English subtitles

Early summer in a village in Northern Turkey. Five free-spirited teenaged sisters splash about on the beach with their male classmates. Though their games are merely innocent fun, a neighbor passes by and reports what she considers to be illicit behavior to the girls’ family. The family overreacts, removing all “instruments of corruption,” like cell phones and computers, and essentially imprisoning the girls, subjecting them to endless lessons in housework in preparation for them to become brides. As the eldest sisters are married off, the younger ones bond together to avoid the same fate. The fierce love between them empowers them to rebel and chase a future where they can determine their own lives in Deniz Gamze Ergüven’s debut, a powerful portrait of female empowerment.

Requiem for the American Dream

7:15 pm | 1 hour, 13 minutes | Documentary, Biography, News

REQUIEM FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM is the definitive discourse with Noam Chomsky, widely regarded as the most important intellectual alive, on the defining characteristic of our time – the deliberate concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a select few. Through interviews filmed over four years, Chomsky unpacks the principles that have brought us to the crossroads of historically unprecedented inequality – tracing a half- century of policies designed to favor the most wealthy at the expense of the majority – while also looking back on his own life of activism and political participation. Profoundly personal and thought provoking, Chomsky provides penetrating insight into what may well be the lasting legacy of our time – the death of the middle class, and swan song of functioning democracy. A potent reminder that power ultimately rests in the hands of the governed, REQUIEM is required viewing for all who maintain hope in a shared stake in the future.

Dance Film Sundays Presents: Bolshoi Ballet in John Neumeier’s Emotion Packed “Lady of the Camellias”

3:00 pm | $12/$10 members/$6 children

A tragic story of life in the Nineteenth Century Parisian demi-monde, captured by Alexandre Dumas’ tragic novel, is re-imagined in an acclaimed production directed and choreographed by John Neumeier for the Bolshoi Ballet in “The Lady of the Camellias” captured on HD. An assemblage of Chopin’s nocturnes and sonatas, the score is emotionally driving and tender and the production is a masterful choreographic examination of the human psyche with themes of forbidden love, heart-break, and death all in three acts and a prologue. Running time 3 hours and 5 minutes. Ukrainian dancer Edvin Revazov (a guest artist from Hamburg Ballet) portrays Armand Duval, a young man from the bourgeois class, who has fallen madly in love with Marguerite Gautier, danced by Svetlana Zakharova, a gorgeous courtesan celebrated by Parisian high society and nick-named the Lady of the Camellias because she wears a white camellia when she is available to her lover(s) and a red one when her delicate condition precludes making love. As a way of showing the sordid side of the demi-monde Neumeier weaves the story-within-a story of “Manon Lescaut,” danced by Anna Tikhomirova as Manon and Semyon Chudin as Des Grieux. John Neumeier, born in Wisconsin in 1942, has made his career largely outside of the United States first as a dancer and house choreographer for the Stuttgart Ballet, then as Director of Ballett Frankfurt, where he soon caused a sensation due to his new interpretations of such well-known ballets as The Nutcracker and Romeo and Juliet. In 1973, he joined The Hamburg Ballet as Director and Chief Choreographer and, under his direction, The Hamburg Ballet became one of the leading ballet companies in Germany. His ballets are in the repertoire of ballet companies world-wide.
