September 21st: In Honor of Hispanic Heritage Month: La Frontera with Pati Jinich: SI:  Miles from Nowhere 

“Savor the sights, sounds and flavors of the U.S.-Mexico border alongside acclaimed chef and James Beard Award-winning host Pati Jinich as she experiences the region’s rich culture, people and cuisine.

(Director: Dan Connell) (Language: Pati Jinich) (PBS). 


September 28th: Julie Taymor’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream 

“From the mind of award-winning director Julie Taymor (The Lion King on Broadway, Frida, Titus) comes a Shakespeare adaptation like none other, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM. Rich with Taymor's trademark creativity, this immersive and darkly poetic cinematic experience brings the play's iconic fairies, spells and hallucinatory lovers to life. Filmed at her sold-out stage production with cinematography by Rodrigo Prieto (Argo, Frida) and music by Academy Award-winning composer Elliot Goldenthal, the feats of visual imagination are ingenious and plentiful, but beating at the center of the film is an emotionally moving take on the deeper human aspects of Shakespeare's beloved tale.”  2 hours, 25 minutes (2015)

(Director: Julie Taymor) (Features: David Harewood, Max Casella, Kathryn Hunter, Tina Benko) (Film Movement).
