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!

Hundreds of thousands of cats have roamed the metropolis of Istanbul freely for thousands of years, wandering in and out of people's lives, impacting them in ways only an animal who lives between the worlds of the wild and the tamed can. Cats and their kittens bring joy and purpose to those they choose, giving people an opportunity to reflect on life and their place in it. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to ourselves.

LUCKY follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town. Having out lived and out smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment. Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch's directorial debut, "Lucky", is at once a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.

PG-13for Some language

Mark Felt - The Man Who Brought Down the White House centers on “Deep Throat”, the pseudonym given to the notorious whistleblower for one of the greatest scandals of all time, Watergate. The true identity of the secret informant remained a mystery and source of much public curiosity and speculation for more than 30 years. That is until, in 2005, special agent Mark Felt shockingly revealed himself as the tipster. This unbelievable true story chronicles the personal and professional life of the brilliant and uncompromising Felt, who risked and ultimately sacrificed everything – his family, his career, his freedom – in the name of justice.

A Film by: Kobi Farag

(Israel, 2016, 77 min, Hebrew, English subtitles).

On the corner of Dizengoff and Arlozorov, in the heart of Tel Aviv, stands Farag which was once THE most glorious photo shop and which remains, in our collective memory, as the epitome of wedding and family photos.

Kobi Farag, a member of the youngest generation of the Farag family, set out to discover the family’s history. After searching in private archives he reveals the story of ten brothers and sisters who immigrated to Israel from Bagdad in the fifties and climbed the ladder of success. He traces their lives from the transition camp to their luxurious home and then tries to solve the riddle of the eventual painful disintegration of a family that drifted apart.

Professor Marston & the Wonder Women

Rfor strong sexual content including brief graphic images, and language.

Details the unconventional life of Dr. William Marston, the Harvard psychologist and inventor who helped invent the modern lie detector test and created Wonder Woman in 1941. Marston was in a polyamorous relationship with his wife Elizabeth, a psychologist and inventor in her own right, and Olive Byrne, a former student who became an academic. This relationship was key to the creation of Wonder Woman, as Elizabeth and Olive's feminist ideals were ingrained in the character from her creation. Marston died of skin cancer in 1947, but Elizabeth and Olive remained a couple and raised their and Marston's children together. The film is said to focus on how Marston dealt with the controversy surrounding Wonder Woman's creation.

Wasted! The Story of Food Waste

Wasted! The Story of Food Waste

UN

Every year, 1.3 billion tons of food is thrown out. That's $218 billion worth of food produced for human consumption that never gets eaten ... With one-third of the world's food being thrown away even before it reaches the plate, it's time to shed new light on what is food and what is garbage.

WASTED! The Story of Food Waste is a feature-length documentary that will change how people buy, cook and eat food.

Through the eyes of chef-heroes like Massimo Bottura, Dan Barber and Danny Bowien, we'll see how the world’s most influential chefs battle food waste — transforming what most people consider garbage, scraps, and rejects into incredible dishes that feed more people, impact the bottom line, and create a more sustainable food system.

WASTED! will also showcase forward-thinking organizations and individuals who are already influencing the future of food recovery and demonstrating how eating empowers you, in the fight to solve one of the greatest problems of the 21st Century: global food waste.
