THE HUMAN FACTOR

2019 | Feature Documentary | English | UK/Israel | 108 min.

EAST COAST PREMIERE

The intricacies of the volatile Palestinian-Israeli peace talks are deftly explored in Academy Award-nominated director Dror Moreh’s (THE GATEKEEPERS) latest documentary. With unprecedented access to six key envoys involved in the peace talk negotiations from the late 1980s to 2000, Moreh creates a riveting behind-the-scenes look at how Bill Clinton, Yasser Arafat, and Yitzhak Rabin came within reach of pulling off the impossible, and how their dreams for a peace accord would eventually unravel in tragedy. THE HUMAN FACTOR is a fascinating look at the missed opportunities and lost chances of the negotiations, with consequences that still reverberate around the world.

Directed by Dror Moreh

ROMANTIC COMEDY

World Cinema Documentary

2019 | Feature Documentary | English | UK | 78 min.

EAST COAST PREMIERE

As a teenager, Elizabeth Sankey’s understanding of love, relationships, and romance was defined by her obsession with romantic comedies. Now a filmmaker herself, she returns to the films she loved, from IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT and HIS GIRL FRIDAY to RUNAWAY BRIDE and WHEN HARRY MET SALLY, to uncover the surprisingly conservative lessons they’ve messaged to popular culture for nearly a century. Using clips from countless genre hallmarks, a diverse chorus of voices, and original music by the filmmaker’s band Summer Camp, Sankey delves into the world of romantic comedies on a journey of investigation and self-discovery.

Directed by Elizabeth Sankey

KIFARU

Compassion, Justice & Animal Rights

2019 | Feature Documentary | Swahili/English | USA | 81 min.

NEW YORK PREMIERE

Through the eyes of two new recruits joining the team of caretakers at Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy, KIFARU explores the often brutal and painstaking process of protecting and caring for Sudan, the world’s last male Northern White Rhino. With much of the species killed at the hands of poachers, the caretakers must devote every resource they have to the protection of Sudan as they attempt to fend off the many threats against the rhino’s life. Spanning the course of four years on the job, filmmaker David Hambridge creates a devastatingly resonant portrait of both the joys and heartbreak felt by each guard and their families, as they attempt to save the world’s oldest land mammals from extinction.

Directed by David Hambridge

Now nearly forty years later, Mark and Andy embark on a road trip to retrace the flight of their prop plane, finding themselves forced to confront a trauma that has haunted them their entire lives as they get closer to the point of impact.
