Never Too Late

It has been a long time since Caine, Bronson, Angus and Wendell, aka, 'The Chain Breakers', escaped the torturous Vietnamese POW camp. They now find themselves sharing a new prison, The Hogan Hills Retirement Home for Returned Veterans. Each of the boys has an unrealised dream they want to achieve before it's too late. So, once again they band together to devise a plan to escape this new hell. But the rules of engagement have changed, in fact, they can't even remember what they were and that's half the problem.


The American Nurse

The American Nurse is a heart-warming film that explores some of the biggest issues facing America - aging, war, poverty, prisons - through the work and lives of nurses. It is an examination of real people that will change how we think about nurses and how we wrestle with the challenges of healing America. The film follows the paths of five nurses in various practice specialties from rural Appalachia, to prison hospices to nursing homes where the entire nursing staff comes together to sing for a dying resident.  And Brian McMillion, an Army veteran and former medic, rehabilitating wounded soldiers returning from war.



The Bad and the Beautiful

The iconic fashion, art and portrait photographer Helmut Newton (1920-2004) described himself, half-dismissively, as “a professional voyeur.” Elaborating, he said “I photograph a body, a face, legs…” Always women. Typically nude. Often provocatively posed and photographed. Director von Boehm paints a layered portrait of an artist devouring the most beautiful women in fashion and film with his camera. It’s a fun, generally brisk biography, one whose tone might be the artist’s credo. Newton declared that there are “only two dirty words” in any of the three languages he spoke — “art” and “good taste.” 


“Cathy has worked tirelessly to find a formula for a single screen theater to survive in this age of multiplexes.”  Eleanor Coppola, Award-winning, Producer, Director and Writer

Yours Truly

From July 10 to 17, stream Ai Weiwei: Yours Truly, the award-winning documentary detailing the human rights concerns at the heart of prolific artist Ai Weiwei’s practice.


Human rights become profoundly personal when Ai Weiwei, China’s most famous artist, transforms Alcatraz Island prison into an astonishing expression of socially-engaged art focused on the plight of the unjustly incarcerated. At the core of the installation, called @Large, were portraits of prisoners of conscience coupled with the opportunity to write letters of solidarity to the imprisoned.

In her impassioned and powerful film, director Cheryl Haines captures this monumental exhibition from conception to fruition, and as well visits current and former prisoners, including American whistleblower Chelsea Manning, to learn how these letters were vital to their survival.  Director, Cheryl Haines.NR, 76 min, Documentary

A Thousand Cuts

On June 15, 2020, journalist Maria Ressa was found guilty of cyber libel, setting a ticking clock on the limited time she has to get her story out to the world and keep the fight for democracy alive in this all too familiar tale of an autocratic leader drowning out "fake news." Nowhere is the worldwide erosion of democracy, fueled by social media disinformation campaigns, more starkly evident than in the authoritarian regime of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. Ressa places the tools of the free press—and her freedom—on the line in defense of truth and democracy.
