WORLD PREMIERE

Ed Asner: On Stage and Off (Dir. Kurt Jacobson and Warren Leming) (83 mins.)

Edward Asner is widely acknowledged as the most honored performer in American television history (seven Emmys, five Golden Globes) and is a spokesman for progressive American ideals. This full-length documentary probes the ethnic Kansas City roots, his early struggles, his inspirations and influences, his remarkable acting career, his brave political activism at personal cost and his unflagging energy to this day as a superb performer on screen and stage. This 2-time former president of the Screen Actors Guild (1981-85) is as devoutly serious about the craft of acting as he is about sticking to ethical action in public life. Like his famous blunt and beloved screen counterpart 'Lou Grant', Asner's personal creed in real life is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. Interviewees include actor Michael Shannon, director Oliver Stone, and actor Mike Farrell.

Wings of Desire - 4K Restoration

Wings of Desire - 4K Restoration

PG-13

"Wings of Desire" is one of cinema’s loveliest city symphonies. Bruno Ganz is Damiel, an angel perched atop buildings high over Berlin who can hear the thoughts—fears, hopes, dreams—of all the people living below. But when he falls in love with a beautiful trapeze artist, he is willing to give up his immortality and come back to earth to be with her. Made not long before the fall of the Berlin wall, this stunning tapestry of sounds and images, shot in black and white and color by the legendary Henri Alekan, is movie poetry. And it forever made the name Wim Wenders synonymous with film art.

New 4K restoration with 5.1 sound mix provided by the Wim Wenders Foundation and supervised by Wim and Donata Wenders. Funding provided by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and the FFA, and by the French CNC.
