– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

BEYOND THE VISIBLE: HILMA AF KLINT

“One of the best films I’ve seen about fine art. It casts an entrancing spell that allows the staggering depth of its subject’s work to consume us.” – Matt Fagerholm, RogerEbert.com

THE BOOKSELLERS

“THE BOOKSELLERS is a documentary for anyone who can still look at a book and see a dream, a magic teleportation device, an object that contains the world.”– VARIETY

BULL

“A wondrous vision of life on the edge.”- Indiewire

FANTASTIC FUNGI

“Eye-opening eye candy.” – Hollywood Reporter

THE INFILTRATORS

“Despite all its importance this is, at its core, almost a popcorn movie.” – Evan Saathoff, Birth Movies Death

SLAY THE DRAGON

“SLAY THE DRAGON is the most important political film of the year, and it may prove to be one of the key political films of the decade.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

UP FROM THE STREETS: NEW ORLEANS: THE CITY OF MUSIC

VITALINA VARELA

“A ravishing masterpiece. The mystery and wonder of Pedro Costa’s filmmaking defies any specific category… Gorgeous. Transcendent.” — Eric Kohn, Indiewire

THE WILD GOOSE LAKE
