MOUTHPIECE

Directed By: Patricia Rozema
Studio: levelFILM

Official Synopsis: MOUTHPIECE is a powerful, amusing and highly original look into the conflicted psyche of Cassandra Haywood a fiercely independent millennial woman. Cass is a single writer who lives by her own rules. She’s also a bit of a disaster. Following the sudden death of her mother, Elaine (Maev Beaty) she finds herself in crisis, unable to think straight, with a debate raging inside her head. This movie makes that invisible conflict visible: Cassandra (Amy Nostbakken & Norah Sadava) battles it out while figuring out what to say at her mother’s funeral. What unfolds is a wild careening through grief, anger, hypocrisy, sex and self-sabotage in an exploration of the messy contemporary lives of women from both generations. Raucous jokes, musical numbers and heart breaking memories add up to a deeply moving and political portrait of a mother and a daughter as seen through the eyes of one conflicted young woman.

Starring: Amy Nostbakken, Norah Sadava, Ari Cohen, Ishan Davé, David Kohlsmith, Paloma Nuñez, and Maev Beaty

LEAVING HOME, COMING HOME: A PORTRAIT OF ROBERT FRANK

Directed By: Gerald Fox
Studio: Greenwich Entertainment

Official Synopsis: Completed in 2004, Leaving Home, Coming Home: A Portrait of Robert Frank was the first ever feature-length documentary about the legendary Swiss-American photographer and filmmaker. Originally deemed too personal to be shown widely, the film has just been authorized by Frank for theatrical release. Shot in cinema-verité style between New York and Nova Scotia, where Frank now lives, the film captures Frank reflecting on a lifetime of image making that most famously produced “The Americans,” probably the most influential photographic book of the last sixty years. From the Lower East Side to Coney Island, Frank revisits places where he lived and photographed, unsentimentally yet humorously noting the erosion of the New York he once knew. He recalls his collaborations with the Beat generation, including his film Pull my Daisy, narrated by Jack Kerouac, as well as his infamous Cocksucker Blues with The Rolling Stones. Affectionate conversations with Frank’s second wife, the vibrant artist June Leaf, reveal decades of closeness, creative exchange and support through the intense tragedies of Frank’s life. In rare moments of vulnerability, Frank speaks movingly about these tragedies and his attempts to cope through his deeply personal photography and films. Unembellished and unflinching, this portrait captures the life and art of one of the most significant and uncompromising artists of the 20th century.

Starring: Robert Frank
