Straight Up

straight up now playing

1h 35min | Comedy, Romance

Todd is a hyper-articulate, obsessive compulsive gay twentysomething whose fear of dying alone leads him to a baffling conclusion: he might not be gay after all. When he meets Rory, a whipsmart struggling actress with her own set of insecurities, the two forge a relationship that’s all talk and no sex. Writer-director-star James Sweeney delivers a razor sharp rom-com that’s equal
parts Classical Hollywood and distinctly 21st century, exploring just how elastic our definitions of love and sexuality can get.

A Towering Task: The Story of the Peace Corps

Peace Corp newsletter

1h 47min | Documentary     

     The new documentary, A Towering Task, tells the remarkable story of the Peace Corps and takes viewers on a journey of how to experience the world.

A Towering Task features indelible interviews of current and returned Peace Corps volunteers, current and former staff, scholars and journalists, community members and leaders around the world (including Presidents Jimmy Carter and Ellen Johnson Sirleaf). Remarkable archival materials and stunning footage from around the globe bring to life an agency that represents to the world the American idea. By expertly weaving together personal volunteer experiences with the political machinations of the time, A Towering Task provides viewers with a visceral experience of President John F. Kennedy’s vision.

As the agency is nearing its 60th anniversary, more than 200,000 volunteers have served in over 140 countries. At the beginning of 2020, more than 7,300 Americans of all ages were serving their country and seeking to understand their place in the global community. They worked at the forefront of some of the most pressing issues facing the global community demonstrating what it means to be an American, both in the U.S. and as part of a broader global community.

In response to the current pandemic, in the first time in its history, the Peace Corps has evacuated all volunteers, and the future of the agency is in question. As the pandemic subsides and the world once again will have to reevaluate how to cooperate, the story of the Peace Corps will serve as a reminder of Kennedy’s call to action: “Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.”

Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy

Diana Kennedy newsletter

1h 22min | Documentary

An intimate, candid perspective into the curious world of cookbook author and British ex-pat Diana Kennedy - widely regarded as the world’s expert on Mexican cuisine. At five feet tall and 97 years old, Diana is larger than life: a foul-mouthed fireball far more feisty and energetic than her age and petite frame let on. Author of nine Mexican cookbooks, she has spent over 60 years researching and documenting the regional cuisines of Mexico. Kennedy has lived ‘off-the-grid’ on an eight-acre ranch outside Zitácuaro, Michoacán since the 1970’s: composting, growing her own crops, and using solar power to run her home. Aware of her own mortality, she is working tirelessly to solidify the legacy of her life’s efforts, with the hope of turning her home into a foundation for culinary education in Mexico.

Spaceship Earth

1h 53min | Documentary

The true, stranger-than-fiction, adventure of eight visionaries who in 1991 spent two years quarantined inside of a self-engineered replica of Earth's ecosystem called Biosphere 2. The experiment was a worldwide phenomenon, chronicling daily existence in the face of life-threatening ecological disaster and a growing criticism that it was nothing more than a cult. The bizarre story is both a cautionary tale and a hopeful lesson of how a small group of dreamers can potentially re-imagine a new world.
