Film: The Living End
Film: The Living End Wed June 28, 2017

LONGER WAYS TO GO FILM SERIES

One of the earliest entries in the New Queer Cinema genre, The Living End is an angsty, hilarious, and tragic response to the AIDS crisis that takes the tropes of the road movie genre and flips them upside down. The films tells the story of Jon (Craig Gilmore), an introverted film critic whose quiet life is disrupted when, in the space of twenty-four hours, he receives an HIV-positive diagnosis and picks up Luke, a brash, unstable drifter who is also HIV-positive. After a deadly encounter with a homophobic police officer, the pair set out on a nihilistic road trip with the motto "F*** everything."

NTLive: No Man's Land
NTLive: No Man's Land Sun August 06, 2017

Following their hit run on Broadway, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart return to the West End stage in Harold Pinter's No Man's Land broadcast from Wyndham's Theatre, London. One summer's evening, two aging writers, Hirst and Spooner, meet in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst's stately house nearby. As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men. Also starring Owen Teale and Damien Molony, don't miss this glorious revival of Pinter's comic classic. The broadcast will be followed by an exclusive Q&A with the cast and director Sean Mathias.

WHY CAN'T WE LIVE TOGETHER? FILM SERIES

Ever since seventeen-year-old Rachel Levy, an Israeli, was killed years ago in Jerusalem by a Palestinian suicide bomber, her mother Abigail has never found peace. Levy's killer was Ayat al-Akhras, also seventeen, a schoolgirl from a Palestinian refugee camp several miles away. The two young women looked unbelievably alike. To Die in Jerusalem unabashedly explores the Palestinian-Israeli conflict through the personal loss of two families, culminating in an emotionally charged meeting between the mothers of the girls -- reflecting the conflict as seen through their eyes. But some emotional chasms are too large to cross.

Film: I Am Not Your Negro
Film: I Am Not Your Negro Wed September 27, 2017

WHY CAN'T WE LIVE TOGETHER? FILM SERIES

In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, "Remember This House." The book was to be a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. At the time of Baldwin's death in 1987, he left behind only 30 completed pages of this manuscript. Now, in his incendiary new documentary, master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished. See more information.
