CLAIRE’S CAMERA is set against the backdrop of the Cannes Film Festival. Hong Sang-soo’s character study follows Man-hee as she tries to navigate the aftermath of being abruptly fired by her jealous boss. When she meets Claire, a teacher from Paris who takes her photo on the beach and offers some sage wisdom on her current predicament, a friendship is formed. A lighter and more whimsical take on Hong’s signature idiosyncratic style, the film’s charms and subtle humor are cemented by wonderful performances from leads Isabelle Huppert and Kim Min-hee.

Santa Fe is facing a housing and equity crisis. Our high cost of living is forcing many people to move farther to the outskirts of the city, often to areas that lack essential services and amenities. This can lead to car dependence, contributing to climate change and perpetuating a cycle of poverty. As Santa Fe continues along this path, we're becoming increasingly segregated and divided, leaving many Santa Feans feeling we must choose between disinvestment and displacement. But Santa Fe is better than that!

IF A TREE FALLS: A STORY OF THE EARTH LIBERATION FRONT is the remarkable story of the group’s rise and fall, told through the transformation and radicalization of one of its members, Daniel McGowan. Part coming-of-age tale, part cops-and-robbers thriller, the film interweaves a chronicle of McGowan facing life in prison with a dramatic investigation of the events that led to his involvement with the ELF. Using never-before-seen archival footage and intimate interviews — with cell members and with the prosecutor and detective who were chasing them — IF A TREE FALLS asks hard questions about environmentalism, activism, and the way we define terrorism.

In this gorgeously animated drama, the lives of several strong-willed women and a young musician intersect. Their stories reveal the hypocrisies of modern Iranian society, where sex, drugs, and corruption coexist with strict religious law. In the bustling metropolis of Tehran, avoiding prohibitions has become an everyday sport and breaking taboos can be a means of personal emancipation. Nevertheless, women invariably end up on the bottom rung of the social order. A young woman needs an operation to “restore” her virginity. A judge in the Islamic Revolutionary Court exhorts favors from a prostitute in exchange for a favorable judgement. The wife of an imprisoned drug addict is denied the divorce she needs in order to live independently.

"Sporting an ingeniously cinematic concept that’s nimbly executed by writer-director Huang Hsin-yao and producer-DP Chung Mong-hong, this ballad of sad losers mixed with satire on parochial politics is convulsively funny yet uncompromisingly bleak, bridging art with entertainment...Arguably the best film to emerge from a year of exciting resurgence in Taiwan" - Maggie Lee, Variety
“A formally inventive, socially conscious, perceptive, and most important of all, humorous work of art. Huang's tragic-comic vision is definitely one of the most exciting things from Asian cinema this year." - I-Lin LIU, Asian Film Vault
"This wink to technology branding is consistent with the central role played by satirical humour in all of Huang’s storytelling endeavours, a facetious tone that brought comic relief to the sometimes grim subjects." - Aurélie Godet , Cinema Scope
“A memorable debut from an uncompromising new voice in Taiwanese cinema." - James Marsh, South China Morning Post

He has appeared on the David Letterman TV show five times.
His latest release is Folk Hotel.
Reviews - Fall 2017
Folk Hotel is almost certainly the best Americana album of 2017 and the lyrics are some of the very best of the last decade. Tom Russell is one of the key songwriters of the last twenty years or so. He must now be included on any list of great songwriters which would also include important people like Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Hank Williams.
Country Music People, Paul Riley, 12/17
Mythical America explored by brilliant Americana songwriter...Russell is a riveting storyteller.
Peter Watts, UNCUT, Oct. 2017
Tom Russell's 'Folk Hotel' keeps it simple, beautiful — and Hank Williams pays a visit...
Chicago Tribune, 9/6/17, Steve Knopper,
One of the top three records of 2017... RNR Magazine
As ruggedly romantic as ever...Russell is a treasure.
Colin Irwin, Mojo, Oct. 2017
A master class in songwriting by an important singer. #2 in the top ten records of 2017. Some of Mr. Russell's best songs ever... CMP UK
Folk Hotel continues to distinguish what makes Russell a master songwriter...fascinating details, quirky characters, and sophisticated narrative structure.
The Austin Chronicle, 9/15/17
Immaculately crafted songs from one of America's greatest troubadour-poets. Folk Roots 10/10/17
More than two dozen albums in, Russell seems to somehow go deeper and grab tighter and more urgently with each new work. In a run of exceptional records spanning decades, this one is, what Russell's fellow Angelino James Ellroy might term, Tom's "latest classic." Craig MacDonald, 10/7/17
Russell gives us detail enough to imagine the characters’ lives behind the lyrics. Just as Dickens gave us everyday protagonists in 19th century London, treated as persons not caricatures, Russell’s songs do this for America; not the New-Adam-Frontier-America with John Ford characters who created the nation state but the modern America of the common man. Mike Wistow, FOLKING UK 10/17
Folk Hotel, Tom’s brilliant new masterwork; a collection that comes hot on the heels of his "Play One More - The Songs of Ian and Sylvia. " Tom Russell is the finest songwriter of my generation. He proves it, yet again, on Folk Hotel.
Mike Regenstreif, Folk Roots/Folk Branches
In the 1990’s Tom Russell was, along with Dave Alvin, hailed as the architect of what came to be known as Americana music. Folk Hotel is album number 36 for Russell and, in 2017, he has surely delivered one of the Americana albums of the year... 9/10 Peter Churchill, Americana UK 8/30/17
“Folk Hotel” is yet another superb album from Tom Russell. If you know his music already, you won’t be disappointed by this latest offering. If you don’t know Tom’s music, this is as good a place as any to start.
Peter Cowley, FATEA
This isn't just the next album, "Folk Hotel" is a very distinct shift of emphasis back to one man playing guitar and singing songs...If this becomes Russell’s new direction, then the future of the storytelling tradition is in safe hands.
No Depression, Lyndon Bolton 8/17
Tom Russell really doesn’t like to be pigeonholed. He appears to only have one rule in his artistic vision, and that’s the primacy of the story; anything else is fair game...Folk Hotel is a beautifully put together set of songs that show Russell at the top of his game. Penguin Eggs, 9/17 Canada
“Folk Hotel” is quite brilliant. Brilliant because no one writes songs with this kind of imagery and this level of intricacy is seldom in folk, nor does it ever sound this weather-worn. Folk, blues, country, poetry, call this whatever you want. The truth is it is all of these things, but so much more. Tom Russell has many people jealous of his talents, wishing they could do this too, but he’s largely without peer. A five-star hotel if ever there was one.
Maximum Volume Music 8/17
Any perceived exhausting elements to grasping the underpinning value of a Tom Russell album are blown away by the riches that this influential Americana scribe lays out. FOLK HOTEL will keep a listener on their toes and retains a tendency to reveal a little bit more in each play. This is the fruit of a legendary singer-songwriter at work and every small share keeps the spirit alive. In a JFK twist – ask not what Tom Russell can do for you, but what you can do for Tom Russell.
Three Chords and The Truth, 9/1/17
If there was any justice in the world Russell would have achieved megastar status long ago, and this veteran performer's finest album to date finds him revelling in the evocative imagery of string of captivating narratives led by "Harlan Clancy." 100 Syndicated Regional Newspapers - UK - 8/30/17
On songs like Rise Against Handsome Johnny , Harlan Clancy and The Last Time I Saw Hank Tom Russell shows that he can take Irish romanticism, history and memories and produce music that is both all his own and that owns Americana. Northern Sky 10/17
Close your eyes and be transported. Not just to Greenwich Village, New York and America’s West, but to Copenhagen, Belfast and Swansea, from whence Dylan Thomas – dedicatee of “The Sparrow of Swansea” – set out on his adventures... Russell is an architect of Americana. The veteran U.S songwriter remains at the top of his game... Buy Folk Hotel and a bottle of Jack Daniel’s, dim the lights and settle into a comfy chair. It’s all the company you need.
Liz Thomson, The Arts Desk, 9/3/17
Alongside his friend and compatriot Dave Alvin there’s a bloody good argument that Tom Russell helped invent what we now call Americana Music...as the record title, "Folk Hotel," implies - here he goes back to what he does better than anyone else these days; writing incredibly complex stories and making them sound beautifully warm and simple.
The Rocking Magpie 8/30/17
Folk Hotel, his 14-track, 71-minute latest release, is one of the best and maybe even the best of all the items in his catalog. Put this record on your must-buy list and then start saving your money. After you hear Folk Hotel, you’re going to want to own a lot more from Russell’s engrossing catalog.
JEFF BURGER, NO DEPRESSSION 9/5/17
For his fortieth album folk singer-songwriter Tom Russell has created a record the likes of which we haven’t seen or heard in more than fifty years— a master at the top of his game. Folk Hotel is a historical novel in 13 songs, something Robert Graves might have written if he had been a songwriter instead of a novelist... it is a towering achievement. It has Grammy written all over it. He has brought folk music in its great tableau out of the dark closets of long-stored and cherished memories into the bright sunshine of waking dreams and day-to-day reality.
Ross Altman, Phd. Folkworks.org 9/8/17
The erudite, engaging Russell likes to populate his songs with vivid, larger than life characters...Russell is an artist who flies under the radar but deserves a bigger audience. 4 1/2 out of 5 Stars. The Sun/UK 9/817
Russell delivered a powerful and often witty performance filled with stories of his encounters with Johnny Cash, David Letterman, and others. It was quite evident that Russell is a national treasure whose music should be better known throughout America. Gary Stoller, No Depression 10/2/17
Slow down and breathe. This contemplative journey follows in the steps of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and is a rare insight into life within a monastic community. The sun rises. Everything is calm and still. Life is beautifully serene as Benedict Cumberbatch’s composed, meditative voice reads an extract from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals. So begins Max Pugh and Marc J Francis’ (Black Gold, LFF2006) fascinating and immersive exploration of what it means to devote one’s life to mindfulness. With unprecedented access to the famous secluded monastery of Plum Village in the South West of France, Walk With Me captures the daily routine and rituals of monks and nuns on a quest to develop a deep sense of presence. It is an insightful rumination on the pursuit of happiness, living in the present and our attachment to material things – a welcome remedy to the stresses of city life and a world in turmoil.
