The last film from Albert Maysles (d. March 5, 2015), Iris pairs the acclaimed documentarian with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old New York style maven. More than a fashion film, it is a story about creativity and inspiration.

Monsoon

  • Apr 25 & 30 (2015) @ 9:30pm
  • Apr 26 (2015) @ 3:30pm

Monsoon is a film that was waiting to be made: a great subject, a vast scale (all over India), dramatic cinematography, and even a bit of humour regarding the timid weather bureaucracy and a henna-haired odds-maker who bets on the rain. This is a fascinating weather film somewhere between a disaster movie and a humble salute to the soul of India.

A sly, slinky creeper set in an imaginary Iranian underworld, Amirpour’s debut feature blends elements of Lynchian neo-noir and spaghetti Western, but the film’s pointed, contemporary gender politics are very much its own. (Variety)
