KISS THE GROUND

Directed by Joshua Tickell, Rebecca Harrell Tickell
(2020, USA, 84 minutes)

Narrated by and featuring Woody Harrelson, this inspiring and groundbreaking film reveals the first viable solution to our climate crisis. KISS THE GROUND reveals that, by regenerating the world’s soils, we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies. Using compelling graphics and visuals, along with striking NASA and NOAA footage, the film artfully illustrates how, by drawing down atmospheric carbon, soil is the missing piece of the climate puzzle.

Positioned to catalyze a movement to accomplish the impossible—to solve humanity’s greatest challenge, to balance the climate and secure our species’ future.



THE NEST

Directed by Sean Durkin
(2020, UK/Canada, 107 minutes)

“Excellently engineered domestic drama, with characters walking on just the right number of eggshells around each other until they crack wide open.” Globe and Mail

Rory (Jude Law), an ambitious entrepreneur and former commodities broker, persuades his American wife, Allison (Carrie Coon), and their children to leave the comforts of suburban America and return to his native England during the 1980s. Sensing opportunity, Rory rejoins his former firm and leases a centuries-old country manor, with grounds for Allison’s horses and plans to build a stable. Soon the promise of a lucrative new beginning starts to unravel, and the couple have to face the unwelcome truths lying beneath the surface of their marriage.



CODED BIAS

Directed by Shalini Kantayya
(2020, USA, 90 minutes)

“A chilling plunge into Orwellian reality.” The Hollywood Reporter

Modern society sits at the intersection of two crucial questions: What does it mean when artificial intelligence increasingly governs our liberties? And what are the consequences for the people AI is biased against?

When MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini discovers that most facial-recognition software does not accurately identify darker-skinned faces and the faces of women, she delves into an investigation of widespread bias in algorithms. As it turns out, artificial intelligence is not neutral, and women are leading the charge to ensure our civil rights are protected.

Winner: New York Women in Film & Television (NYWIFT) Award for Excellence in Documentary Filmmaking



DICK JOHNSON IS DEAD

Directed by Kirsten Johnson
(2020, USA, 89 minutes)

“For all its playfulness, it’s the real, stinging, joyful, inconvenient reality of life that DICK JOHNSON gives us. It’s a committed act of preservation: a looping, reeling, repeatable act of love.” Rolling Stone

A lifetime of making documentaries has convinced award-winning filmmaker Kirsten Johnson (CAMERAPERSON) of the power of the real. But now she’s ready to use every escapist movie-making trick in the book—staging inventive and fantastical ways for her 86-year-old psychiatrist father to die while hoping that cinema might help her bend time, laugh at pain and keep her father alive forever.

The darkly funny and wildly imaginative DICK JOHNSON IS DEAD is a love letter from a daughter to a father, creatively blending fact and fiction to create a celebratory exploration of how movies give us the tools to grapple with life’s profundity.

Winner of a U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.

US KIDS

Directed by Kim A. Snyder
(2020, USA, 123 minutes)

When a gunman entered the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine’s Day 2018, gruesome images of the deadliest high school shooting in US history quickly emerged. In the massacre’s aftermath, students unite in their frustration at the inaction of elected officials. Over the next month, their actions grow into the nationwide March For Our Lives movement, the largest youth protest in American history. Peabody Award-winning director Kim A. Snyder (NEWTOWN) follows the teenage activists as they fight for gun control and compel the political system into action. Insightful and rousing, US KIDS chronicles a new generation of youth leaders and their remarkable dedication to enact change.

“Offers a potent testimony to the impact of citizen protest.” Variety
