Co-Directed by Glenn Silber this political documentary illustrates the turbulent history of El Salvador from the 1930s-1980s, and the role of the U.S. government in that history. As the title suggests, the presence of U.S. military advisors in a military dictatorship fighting a guerrilla army fighting a civil war with popular support that are labeled communist is highly reminiscent of the beginnings of the U.S. escalation of the war in Vietnam. It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

Horse Tribe - Final - USA

60:00 min / Directed by: Janet Kern

The 21st century Nez Perce Tribe of Idaho decided that timeworn notions of Native American nobility and loss were unproductive. Once a great American horse tribe, they initiated a renaissance by bringing horses back to their land and lives with the help of a charismatic Navajo horseman whose exceptional gifts bring Nez Perce horse culture to modern renown and guides tribal youth to the 'strong medicine' of horses. But his personal demons -- and Indian on Indian racial prejudice -- imperil both accomplishments. 'Horse Tribe' illumines the connection of human to animal, history to life, and values to action. It is a heartbreaking, intimate and epic tale of vision and grit, a community in conflict, a man in crisis, and a beloved herd at risk.

Essence: Exploring the Horse-Human Relationship – IL USA

Directed by: Ivy Schexnayder

Since the dawn of time, humans have been drawn to horses - their strength, beauty, and power. We desire to have a deep connection with these wild and untamed creatures. What causes this longing for a relationship between humans and horses? Nature randomly taking its course? Or is this desire we have for a deeper connection a picture of God’s work of drawing us to Himself despite our rebellious hearts? Essence explores the complex connection between horses and humans and its deeper meaning with breathtaking footage taken from across the Midwest.

STALLION OF A DREAM: California and the Camarillo White Horse is the quintessential California story. From the 19th Century, Californians have sought a slicker means of locomotion, but before lowriders, hotrods and freeways, California was the birthplace of an endangered rare horse breed that set it apart: The Camarillo White Horse. For a century, these horses have embodied the California dream to spectators worldwide, evoking California’s storied past of immigration and empire-building and illuminating shifting attitudes on race, social status and personal identity. Into the cauldron of desire, possibility and the alchemy of transformation that was early California, came the aristocratic Spanish colonists known as the Californios, among them the Camarillo family. In this early California landscape the horse was central to traditions and culture.

Horse Shelter Diaries

Horse Shelter Diaries – NM USA

Directed by: Donna Wells

Horse Shelter Diaries is a new documentary by filmmaker, Donna Wells, whose purpose was to make the public aware that there are healthy viable horses for adoption out at The Horse Shelter in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Nine horse trainers took 9 horses that had never been saddled and ridden and trained them for 100 days then competed at the Gimme Shelter: Trainers’ Rally for Rescues event at the National Day of the Cowboy celebration. Over 1200 people witnessed what a difference a little training can make in the lives of these horse. The horses were then auctioned off to qualified bidders and went to their new homes.

The individual personalities of the rescue horses and the role of the trainers in their lives is the focus of the new documentary. Most horses end up at the Shelter because they have never been taught boundaries or skills. Wells said she was touched to see that all the trainers were genuinely invested in the welfare of the horses. “These horses are priceless,” trainer Erica Hess told the filmmaker, “and I feel like we’re just mining the gold that is in each of them.”

Marie Curie

Marie Curie

Polish actress Karolina Gruszka stars in this sweeping biography of the legendary, Nobel Prize–winning physicist and chemist, who courted controversy with both her challenging of France’s male-dominated academic establishment and her unconventional romantic life.

Physicist, chemist, and pioneer in the study of radioactivity, Marie Sklodowska Curie spent her life setting precedents. She was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize and the first person to win it twice. As the first female professor at the University of Paris, she had to overcome the condescension and antagonism of France's male-dominated academic establishment. She also courted controversy of the sort that still threatens to quash the careers of public figures today. This sweeping biography brings to life Curie's inspiring story of discovery, heartbreak, and triumph.

Marie Curie, The Courage of Knowledge depicts the blissful union between Marie (Karolina Gruszka) and her husband Pierre (Charles Berling), the father of her children, her partner in research, and co-winner of that first Nobel. When Pierre perishes in a tragic accident, it's up to Marie to continue their work. But as a woman and a foreigner, she's met with doubly fierce resistance. And though she perseveres, she's nearly undone by revelations regarding her relationship with a married colleague.

Director Marie Noëlle conjures turn-of-the-century Europe with camerawork whose restless precision is an analogue of the brilliant scientist's mind. Split-screen compositions slide like shoji doors, and lyrical montages emphasize the momentousness of Marie's innovations. At the centre of all this activity is, of course, Marie herself. Gruszka's performance, alternately stoic and vulnerable, never lets us forget that this visionary woman was also very much a complicated and fascinating human being.

Riders Of The Mist - India

65:00 min / Directed by: Roopa Barua

Riders of the Mist is a documentary about a century old bareback pony racing tradition in the state of Assam, India. The ponies are free-grazing and live in the grassland river islands of the Brahmaputra Valley. They come and participate in the annual racing event of a colonial era planters club in Jorhat, Assam. This documentary is a portrayal of the races as they unfold, the jockeys and their lives and these ponies that become part of the tradition every year. The heavy mist that hovers over Jorhat during this time of the year is a fitting backdrop for this quirky phenomenon that has a fleeting presence for a few days every year and is gone almost as soon as it arrives.

The Colorado

The Colorado, an epic film about North America’s wildest river, will have its New Mexico premier at the Jean Cocteau Cinema. Long-time Santa Fe resident William deBuys has co-written the script. Directed by Murat Eyuboglu, the soundtrack of the film is scored by five critically acclaimed composers—William Brittelle, Glenn Kotche, Shara Nova, Paola Prestini, and recent Pulitzer and Grammy winner John Luther Adams —and performed by Grammy-laureate vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth, percussionist Glenn Kotche (of Wilco), and cellist Jeffrey Zeigler (formerly with the Kronos Quartet).

For five million years the Colorado has carved some of the most majestic landscapes on the planet. It has also become the lifeline of a vast portion of North America, providing the water that sustains nearly forty million people, half a dozen major cities, and an immense agricultural empire. Because of these demands, the river is so overused and overpromised that it no longer flows to the sea or nourishes its delta. Placing the ecology of the river within a rich social context, The Colorado journeys through the prehistoric settlement of the region, the period of European exploration, the dam-building era, modern industrial agriculture and immigration, and the impacts of climate change.

Wrestling Jerusalem

Single Showing as a Benefit for Creativity for Peace and for the Santa Fe Council on International Relations

A cinematic journey of one man into the heart of the Israeli - Palestinian story.

“In a tour-de-force performance, writer-actor Aaron Davidman conjures a host of different characters while seeking answers to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in WRESTLING JERUSALEM. Creatively adapting his acclaimed one-man stage show using only simple props and backdrops, Davidman takes a multidimensional journey into the heart of the Middle East, and the intersection of politics, identity and spiritual yearning. He embodies and gives voice to 17 different characters on all sides of the existential divide–deftly moving between male and female, Jewish and Muslim, Israeli and Arab–modeling what it takes truly to bear witness through the eyes of the other. Challenging long-held beliefs with sharp and unblinking observation, Davidman finds both entrenched isolation and shared humanity in the shifting moral compasses and competing narratives of all his characters. Filmmaker Dylan Kussman moves freely and seamlessly among three locations–a live theater audience, the open expanse of a vast desert, and a small dressing room–exploiting the interplay of theatrical spontaneity, cinematic poetry, and spiritual intimacy. The result is a unique hybrid of stage and cinema that reignites hope for the future of this troubled region.”
