What did you think of this film?
A unique window into the honest and whimsical world of beloved performer Gilda Radner, whose greatest role was sharing her story. Working with the Radner estate, D’Apolito unearthed a collection of diaries and personal audio and videotapes documenting her childhood, her comedy career, her relationships and ultimately, her struggles with cancer. These never-before-seen-or-heard footage and journal entries form the narrative spine of the documentary, allowing Gilda to tell her own story – through laughter and sometimes tears.

Hal (2018)?

What did you think of this film?
Although Hal Ashby directed a remarkable string of acclaimed, widely admired classics throughout the 1970s—HAROLD AND MAUDE, THE LAST DETAIL, SHAMPOO, COMING HOME, BEING THERE—he is often overlooked amid the crowd of luminaries from his generation. Amy Scott’s exuberant portrait explores that curious oversight, using rare archival materials, interviews, personal letters, and audio recordings to reveal a passionate, obsessive artist. Ashby was a Hollywood director who constantly clashed with Hollywood, but also a unique soul with an unprecedented insight into the human condition and an unmatched capacity for good. His films were an elusive blend of honesty, irreverence, humor, and humanity. Through the heartrending and inspiring HAL, you feel buoyed by Ashby’s love of people and of cinema, a little like walking on water.

What did you think of this film?
Starting six months before the 2016 presidential election, director Jim Stern put his life on hold and — driven to understand what seemed incomprehensible at the time — traveled through red states to interview and spend time with Donald Trump supporters from different backgrounds. It was a search for insights and answers, for anything that could explain the billionaire’s surging appeal and why these voters remained untroubled by so many troubling things the candidate had said and done.

What did you think of this film?
In January, 2015, American rock climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson captivated the world with their effort to climb The Dawn Wall, a seemingly impossible 3,000 foot rock face in Yosemite National Park, California.

The pair lived on the sheer vertical cliff for weeks, igniting a frenzy of global media attention.

But for Tommy Caldwell, The Dawn Wall was much more than just a climb. It was the culmination of a lifetime defined by overcoming obstacles. At the age of 22, the climbing prodigy was taken hostage by rebels in Kyrgyzstan. Shortly after, he lost his index finger in an accident, but resolved to come back stronger. When his marriage fell apart, he escaped the pain by fixating on the extraordinary goal of free climbing The Dawn Wall.

Blurring the line between dedication and obsession, Caldwell and his partner Jorgeson spend six years meticulously plotting and practicing their route. On the final attempt, with the world watching, Caldwell is faced with a moment of truth. Should he abandon his partner to fulfill his ultimate dream, or risk his own success for the sake of their friendship?

40 Years in the Making: The Magic Music Movie (2017)*

Title: 40 Years in the Making: The Magic Music Movie

Running Time: 99 minutes

What did you think of this film?
One of the most fondly-remembered bands of the Boulder revolution was Magic Music.

These guys were the real deal: living in teepees, cabins, and converted school buses up in the Boulder mountain ranges, only leaving their camp to grace city-folk and university students with their sweet melodies. With their original songs, acoustic instruments and tight harmonies, Magic Music was tremendously popular in Boulder and many people expected them to go on to much wider success. Although they had their fair share of ‘almosts’ over the years, the group never made a record deal and eventually broke up in 1976.

One of Magic Movie’s biggest fans was Director Lee Aronsohn, who attended the University of Colorado at Boulder before leaving for a life in Los Angeles in 1975. 40 years later, the songs he had heard Magic Music play on the campus quad continued to echo in his head, but there was no record to listen to, no CD, or no MP3s. Aronsohn would hum the songs he remembered to himself, and sing them to his children. Every so often he’d search the blossoming World Wide Web for any trace of Magic Music, but aside from a handful of singing magicians, there was little to be found.

Two years ago, Aronsohn finally found a connection to one of the original band members, Chris “Spoons” Daniels, who has remained active in the Colorado music scene with his band Chris Daniels and the Kings. Through his connection with Chris, Aronsohn learned about the post-Magic Music history of the other band members, and to his excitement, discovered the existence of never-released demo tracks recorded by the band back in the 70’s. Having retired from television in 2012 after 35 years making sitcoms, Aronsohn was looking for a new project that would be personally meaningful to him, and found it in the story of Magic Music. Why had his favorite band not made it? Were they as happy and fulfilled now as they seemed to be in the 70’s? And last but not least, could he convince the remaining members to put aside their differences for one last show?
