Following the events of “Captain America: Civil War,” the Avengers as we know it no longer exists. Lines were drawn; sides were chosen. The Avengers is nothing more than a team name without any team members. Can Earth’s Mightiest Heroes put aside their differences and unite once more? Do they even stand a chance against the Mad Titan who delights in their failure and desperation? Can they stop his thirst for power and chaos as he begins to collect the Infinity Stones?

Remember that one shelf in the back of the video store? No, not the that one, the other one... And remember Night Flight? And remember adjusting the tracking on your VCR? And remember monster heads exploding and hand shakes through the fly of your pants?

Coming to Asheville from Studio 35 Cinema and Drafthouse in Columbus, Ohio, Bad Movie Nite! is a celebration of some of the cheapest, cheesiest, and most unintentionally hilarious b-movies ever made. You'll get trailers, shorts and a feature, and although we can't tell you what it is (we never know until we get it), believe me, it will be BAD!

“A tender, beautiful and loving film, which subtly recalls the crucial part the German Jews once had within Berlin culture.”

Berliner Morgenpost

During the 1920s, Café Nagler was the hottest place in Berlin. Mor, the film's director embarks on a journey to find out what's left of her family's legendary café. Her grandmother follows the filming with great anticipation. When Mor discovers the true story behind the café, she is unable to break her grandmother's heart and looks for a creative solution. Café Nagler is a film about memory, about our need for family myths and about our longing for a different past.

Final Portrait

Rfor language, some sexual references and nudity.

In 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, the American writer and art-lover James Lord (Armie Hammer) is asked by his friend, the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti (Geoffrey Rush), to sit for a portrait. The process, Giacometti assures Lord, will take only a few days. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees. So begins not only the story of an offbeat friendship, but, seen through the eyes of Lord, an insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process. FINAL PORTRAIT is a portrait of a genius, and of a friendship between two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly bonded through a single, ever-evolving act of creativity. It is a film which shines a light on the artistic process itself, by turns exhilarating, exasperating and bewildering, questioning whether the gift of a great artist is a blessing or a curse.

What happens when you lose the foundation of your family? In the wake of a husband and father's death, the family members he leaves behind find themselves adrift-and in danger of drifting apart-as they each try to find meaning in a world without the man who held them together. Mother Suzanne (Andie MacDowell) tentatively seeks companionship-but her attempts at dating only drive a wedge between her and older son Nicholas (Chris O'Dowd), whose own relationship with his girlfriend is disintegrating. Meanwhile, younger son Chris (James Adomian) deals with grief in his own complicated-and increasingly worrying-way. What plays out between the trio is a beautifully observed, powerfully emotional journey that speaks to the strength of family ties.

THE BLOOD IS AT THE DOORSTEP

THE BLOOD IS AT THE DOORSTEP

On April 30, 2014, Dontre Hamilton, a black, unarmed man diagnosed with schizophrenia, was shot 14 times and killed by a Milwaukee police officer responding to a non-emergency wellness check in a popular downtown park.

Filmed over the course of three years in the direct aftermath of Dontre's death, this intimate verite documentary follows his family as they struggle to find answers and challenge a criminal justice system stacked against them. Offering a painfully realistic glimpse inside a movement born out of tragedy, this explosive documentary takes a behind the scenes look at one of America’s most pressing social issues.

The setting may be Milwaukee, but it could just as well be anywhere—and it’s a film every concerned citizen here should see.

THESE ARE MY HOURS is a full sensory immersion into one woman's physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual experience of giving birth. It is the first documentary filmed entirely during the course of one one woman's labor, told from her perspective.

Emily Graham lives in Greenville, South Carolina, where she is about to give birth at home. She trusts herself and her body, and believes she possesses instinctual wisdom for labor.

It's been said: When a child is born, the mother is born too.

THESE ARE MY HOURS presents the ultimate celebration of womanhood by honoring its oldest ritual.

Featuring an original soundtrack by Lobo Marino.

"Whoever watches These Are My Hours becomes a companion, a godparent in this woman's labor, a participant in a small yet enormous slice of life. The film contrasts the true glory of the female body and its muscular and existential potential: Emily is not just a pregnant woman; she is the primal life-giving woman who wishes to do, can do and does do. This is, simply and in all its complexity, experiencing a revelation - of a new person, who will grow up to view the female naked body naturally, with respect and curiosity, in its beauty and ugliness, the way it really is."

- Leda Galanou, Flix Magazine

"These Are My Hours is the most beautiful, raw and honest birth film I've seen. As a midwife I've seen women give birth so many times. To know there's footage that captures this experience so well makes me beyond grateful. I cannot wait to share this film with my clients."

- Marjolein Faber, Dutch Midwife

"While other documentaries on birth have faithfully recorded and narrated a wide range of birth stories, Kirschenbaums brings the viewer close to feeling the sensations of birth... This ability to access the physiology of birth through film on the level of the sensory, as opposed to just the visual, is rare."

- Anna Hennessey, Visiting Scholar, UC Berkeley

"These Are My Hours represents everything I believe as a woman, mother, midwife, and feminist. I was in tears just a few seconds in, and haven't stopped thinking about it since. We need more tools for the positive birth movement, and this film is the real deal."

- Margo Blackstone, Co-Director of Indie Birth
