American Movie
USA 1999 107 min.

It takes a village to make a movie—but when that village is Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, rather than Hollywood, the creative process can go painfully, hilariously, unforgettably awry. A heartfelt tribute to underdogs everywhere, this acclaimed 1999 documentary remains a cult favorite today.

Best Before Death
USA 2019 89 min.

Scottish artist and musician Bill Drummond is on a 12-year world tour—but instead of performing in any traditional sense, he’s baking cakes and shining shoes in a documentary so quirky it almost reads as parody.

Cinearchitecture
Italy 2009 37 min.

Cunningham

A Family Tour
Taiwan 2018 107 min.

Forman vs. Forman
Czech Republic 2019 77 min.

It Must Be Heaven
France 2019 97 min.

Filmmaker E.S. has left Palestine—but no matter how far he travels, he can never leave the nation of his birth behind. Reminders of Nazareth imbue Paris and New York in this charmingly deadpan comedy that asks whether it’s ever truly possible to find a place to call home.

Nightcrawlers
USA 2018 75 min.

In 2011, Stephen McCoy set out to make a documentary about Boston’s homeless, dubbing the outcasts and addicts whose lives he captured with his camcorder “nightcrawlers.” Little did the budding filmmaker know that, a few years later, he’d be one of them. This is his video diary.

Varda by Agnès
France 2019 115 min.
