The Handmaiden

 

From PARK Chan-wook, the celebrated director of OLDBOY, LADY VENGEANCE and STOKER, comes a ravishing new crime drama. PARK presents a gripping and sensual tale of two women - a young Japanese Lady living on a secluded estate, and a Korean woman who is hired to serve as her new handmaiden, but is secretly plotting with a conman to defraud her of a large inheritance. Inspired by the novel Fingersmith by British author Sarah Waters, THE HANDMAIDEN borrows the most dynamic elements of its source material and combines it with PARK Chan-wook’s singular vision to create an unforgettable viewing experience.

“SEXY AND TWISTY AND SO COMPELLING.” – Alison Willmore, Buzzfeed

“THE BEST FILM AT CANNES THIS YEAR. Deliriously twisty.” – Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice **

“FOUR STARS. A HUGELY ENTERTAINING THRILLER. Simmering with genuine sexual tension.” – Benjamin Lee, The Guardian

Gimme Danger

Cine-Rama and the Chattanooga Film Festival are honored to present a film about one of the greatest rock n roll bands that ever existed by one of the greatest filmmakers who ever lived. There is no filmmaker more perfect to tell the strange but true tale of The Stooges. It doesn't get much cooler than GIMME DANGER.

Emerging from Ann Arbor Michigan amidst a countercultural revolution, The Stooges’ powerful and aggressive style of rock-n-roll blew a crater in the musical landscape of the late 1960s. Assaulting audiences with a blend of rock, blues, R&B, and free jazz, the band planted the seeds for what would be called punk and alternative rock in the decades that followed. Jim Jarmusch’s new film GIMME DANGER chronicles the story of The Stooges, one of the greatest rock-n-roll bands of all time. GIMME DANGER presents the context of the Stooges emergence musically, culturally, politically, historically, and relates their adventures and misadventures while charting their inspirations and the reasons behind their initial commercial challenges, as well as their long-lasting legacy.

Little Sister is one of those films that we just instantly had to share with our audiences after seeing.

Get ready to love this one as much as we do and we think that you'll join us in agreement with Indiewire that LITTLE SISTER is the "Goth-Nun Family Dramedy You Didn't Know You Needed".

Author: The JT Leroy Story

Cine-Rama is proud to present a special week long engagement of one of the most fascinating and incredible documentaries of 2016. Author: The JT Leroy Story.

On January 9, 2006 The New York Times sent shockwaves through the literary world when it unmasked "it boy" wunderkind JT LeRoy, whose tough prose about a sordid childhood had captivated icons and luminaries internationally. It turned out LeRoy didn't actually exist. He was the creative expression of 40-year-old San Francisco former phone-sex operator turned housewife, Laura Albert. Author: The JT LeRoy Story takes us down the infinitely fascinating rabbit hole of how Laura Albert - like a Cyrano de Bergerac on steroids - breathed not only words, but life, into her avatar for a decade. Albert's epic and entertaining account plunges us into a glittery world of rock shows, fashion events, and the Cannes red carpet where LeRoy becomes a mysterious sensation.

White Girl

White Girl

Summer, New York City. A college girl falls hard for a guy she just met. After a night of partying goes wrong, she goes to wild extremes to get him back. WHITE GIRL’s provocative story, already being praised as a “Kids” for the millennial generation, is based on the real-life events of director Elizabeth Wood.

“There are so many remarkable things about Saylor’s ferocious lead performance in WHITE GIRL that it’s hard to know where to begin … Vulnerable, invincible, empowered, and pathetic all at once, few actresses have better navigated the difference between being naked and being exposed – and it looks like we ain’t seen nothing yet.” – Rolling Stone

“The film uses the freedoms of a beautiful, white, blonde girl as a commentary on white privilege; that it never slams that message over the heads of its viewers is a testament to its commitment to show, not tell. This is no after-school special, nor is it a celebration of what it means to be 19 and have the world at your fingertips. Call it a coming-of-age story, but only if “coming of age” means realizing the harsh limits of the power afforded to you by your race, gender, or sexuality.” – BuzzFeed

“Shocking and sexy as hell…Seductive and repellent by turns, �it’s a title that will provoke fierce love-or-hate reactions, but there’s no question it augurs the arrival of a powerful, audacious new directorial talent.”�– The Hollywood Reporter

“WHITE GIRL is a movie you can’t easily shake off, not even days after you’ve seen it.” – Indiewire’s The Playlist

“Terrific performances and a topical plot…a stylish Sundance button-pusher.” – The Guardian

“The most explosive portrait of NYC youth since Kids” – iD x VICE

“A f**cked-up nightmare dressed as a party.” – Buzzfeed

Danny Says - Art House Theater Day Special Screening

Help your pals at Chattanooga's only art house cinema celebrate the first ever nationwide Art House Theater Day with this special screening! DANNY SAYS is a documentary on the life and times of Danny Fields. Since 1966, Danny Fields has played a pivotal role in music and “culture” of the late 20th century: working for the Doors, Lou Reed, Nico, Judy Collins and managing groundbreaking artists like the Stooges, the MC5 and the Ramones. DANNY SAYS follows Fields from Harvard Law dropout, to the Warhol Silver Factory, to Director of Publicity at Elektra Records, to “punk pioneer” and beyond. Danny’s taste and opinion, once deemed defiant and radical, has turned out to have been prescient. DANNY SAYS is a story of marginal turning mainstream, avant garde turning prophetic, as Fields looks to the next generation.

The Chattanooga Film Festival are absolutely honored to have the opportunity to bring all 10 hours of Krzysztof Kieślowski's cinema masterwork to Chattanooga for one weekend only. Cinephiles will already know what rarity it is to see these films theatrically so we're hoping very much that you'll join us.

This masterwork by Krzysztof Kieślowski is one of the twentieth century’s greatest achievements in visual storytelling. Originally made for Polish television, Dekalog focuses on the residents of a housing complex in late-Communist Poland, whose lives become subtly intertwined as they face emotional dilemmas that are at once deeply personal and universally human. The series’ ten hour-long films draw from the Ten Commandments for thematic inspiration and an overarching structure, and grapple deftly with complex moral and existential questions concerning life, death, love, hate, truth, and the passage of time. Shot by nine different cinematographers, written alongside longtime collaborator Krzysztof Piesiewicz, with stirring music by Zbigniew Preisner and compelling performances from established and unknown actors alike, Dekalog arrestingly explores the unknowable forces that shape our lives.

This new digital transfer of Dekalog was sourced from the 35mm original camera negatives provided by Telewizja Polska and stored at Filmoteka Narodow. When possible, the restoration of each episode was supervised and approved by its respective cinematographer.

DEKALOG: ONE
Krzysztof, a semantics professor and computer hobbyist, is raising his young son, Paweł, to look to science for answers, while Irena, Paweł’s aunt, lives a life rooted in faith. Over the course of one day, both adults are forced to question their belief systems.
DEKALOG: TWO
Dorota is in love with two men: her gravely ill husband, Andrzej, and a fellow musician who is the father of her unborn child. Andrzej’s doctor, himself no stranger to loss, is Dorota’s downstairs neighbor; she implores him to swear to a prognosis for her husband, and in doing so puts a very serious decision into his hands.
DEKALOG: THREE
It’s Christmas Eve, and Ewa has plotted to pass the hours until morning with her former lover Janusz, a family man, by making him believe her husband has gone missing. During this night of recklessness and lies, the pair grapple with choices made three years ago, when their affair was discovered, and with the value of their present lives.
DEKALOG: FOUR
A father and daughter, Michal and Anka, have a unique intimacy, that the college-aged Anka is beginning to feel conflicted about. When she finds an unopened letter from her deceased mother, it seems to justify her attraction to Michal, who may not in fact be her father.
DEKALOG: FIVE
Jacek, an angry drifter, murders a taxi driver, brutally and without motive. His case is assigned to Piotr, an idealistic young lawyer who is morally opposed to the death penalty, and their interactions take on an emotional honesty that throws into stark relief for Piotr the injustice of killing of any kind.
DEKALOG: SIX
A teenage postal worker, Tomek, routinely spies on his older neighbor Magda, a sexually liberated artist who lives in the apartment across the courtyard from his. As their private worlds merge, fascination turns to obsession, and the line between love and curiosity becomes violently blurred.
DEKALOG: SEVEN
As a high school student, Majka bore a child, Ania, whom Majka’s mother, Ewa, has been raising as her own. Now that Majka is ready for motherhood, Ewa refuses to let go, leading Majka to kidnap her own daughter, with unexpected emotional consequences.
DEKALOG: EIGHT
Zofia, a professor of ethics, is visited by Elzbieta, an American researching the fate of Jews who survived World War II. A daytime classroom conversation turns into a night of confrontation, and Zofia is forced to answer for a decision she made decades ago that directly affected the course of Elzbieta’s life.
DEKALOG: NINE
Roman and Hanka have a loving marriage, but his impotence has led to her having an affair. The unbearable situation drives Roman to extreme measures both physically and mentally, testing their love and his own will to live.
DEKALOG: TEN
Jerzy and Artur’s father dies, leaving behind a valuable stamp collection, which, they discover, is coveted by dealers of varying degrees of shadiness. The more involved the brothers get in their father’s world, the more dire and comical their situation becomes.

Gene Wilder Tribute - Blazing Saddles

There is no overstating the magic of Gene Wilder we loved his work deeply and a great many of you since his passing have contacted us about tribute screenings. We would never ever allow ourselves to profit on the legacy of anyone that added so many great films to our lives but it's also apparent that like us a great many of you have found that among the best ways to pay tribute to this lost legend is to revisit all of the incredible films he left behind.

That's why we're proud to offer up this special screening of one of Gene's all time great performances in Mel Brook's comedy classic BLAZING SADDLES. Proceeds from this event's ticket sales will be donated to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America. Our humble way of saying than you for the lifetime of laughter and all-time classic films that Gene left behind. Join us in paying tribute to this fallen hero.

Ingmar Bergman's: The Seventh Seal

Disillusioned and exhausted after a decade of battling in the Crusades, a knight (Max von Sydow) encounters Death on a desolate beach and challenges him to a fateful game of chess. Much studied, imitated, even parodied, but never outdone, Bergman’s stunning allegory of man’s search for meaning, The Seventh Seal (Det sjunde inseglet), was one of the benchmark foreign imports of America’s 1950s art-house heyday, pushing cinema’s boundaries and ushering in a new era of moviegoing.

Don't Look Back

Bob Dylan is captured on-screen as he never would be again in this groundbreaking film from D. A. Pennebaker. The legendary documentarian finds Dylan in England during his 1965 tour, which would be his last as an acoustic artist. In this wildly entertaining vision of one of the twentieth century’s greatest artists, Dylan is surrounded by teen fans, gets into heated philosophical jousts with journalists, and kicks back with fellow musicians Joan Baez, Donovan, and Alan Price. Featuring some of Dylan’s most famous songs, including “Subterranean Homesick Blues,” “The Times They Are A-Changin’,” and “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue,” Dont Look Back is a radically conceived portrait of an American icon that has influenced decades of vérité behind-the-scenes documentaries.

I Am Not a Serial Killer

Cine-Rama is proud to present a special weekend engagement of one of the funnest thrillers you'll see this year (and featuring our favorite Christopher Lloyd performance since the Back to the Future days).

Sixteen-year-old John Wayne Cleaver (Max Records, Where the Wild Things Are) is not a serial killer -- but he has all the makings of one. Keeping his homicidal tendencies and morbid obsessions with death and murder in check is a constant struggle that only gets harder when a real serial killer begins terrorizing his sleepy Midwestern town. Now, in order to track down a psychopath and protect those around him, John must unleash his darkest inner demons. Based on the cult novel by Dan Wells, this twisted, genre-bending thriller co-stars Christopher Lloyd and Breaking Bad's Laura Fraser.

Weiner

Anthony Weiner was a young congressman on the cusp of higher office when a sexting scandal forced a humiliating resignation. Just two years later, he ran for mayor of New York City, betting that his ideas would trump his indiscretions. He was wrong. With unprecedented access to Weiner, his family and his campaign team, WEINER is a thrilling look inside a political comeback-turned-meltdown. What begins as an unexpected surge to the top of the polls takes a sharp turn once Weiner is forced to admit to new sexting allegations. As the media descends and dissects his every move, Weiner desperately tries to forge ahead, but the increasing pressure and crippling 24-hour news coverage halt his political aspirations. With the city of New York as a loud and bustling backdrop, Weiner walks the line between political farce and personal tragedy as it plunges through an increasingly baffling political campaign with unflinching clarity, humor, and pathos.

Opening Reception: Ashley Hamilton // Fragmented Desire

Swine is excited to announce it's second solo-exhibition by local artist Ashley Hamilton!

We will have an opening reception on Friday, August 26th, from 5:30 - 8pm. There will be a lecture by the artist starting at 6:30pm. Light refreshments will be provided; this event is free and open to the public! 

The show is up through September 10th!

Ashley Hamilton is an interdisciplinary artist from Chattanooga, TN. A native of Nashville, Ashley began her art education at Nashville School of the Arts. She spent a year studying abroad at Queensland College of Art in Brisbane, Australia, where she focused mainly on printmaking and installation. She received her BFA in drawing and painting from University of Tennessee in Chattanooga.

Ashley’s work exists in the liminal space between struggle and play. Her work often explores issues regarding the quest of self-identity, focusing on psychoanalytical notions such as displacement, fragmentation, desire, and repetition compulsion. The viewer is confronted with overwhelming amounts of marks from compulsively painting on top of paintings, then peeling back through the various layers. There is an air of mania and anxiety; an itch that cannot be satiated; an alarm that cannot be silenced. Through these ritualistic studio practices, Ashley's work is both cathartic and compounding.

In LO AND BEHOLD, REVERIES OF THE CONNECTED WORLD, the Oscar®-nominated documentarian Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams) chronicles the virtual world from its origins to its outermost reaches, exploring the digital landscape with the same curiosity and imagination he previously trained on earthly destinations as disparate as the Amazon, the Sahara, the South Pole and the Australian outback. Herzog leads viewers on a journey through a series of provocative conversations that reveal the ways in which the online world has transformed how virtually everything in the real world works - from business to education, space travel to healthcare, and the very heart of how we conduct our personal relationships.

Fantastic Planet with Bad Friend

One of our favorite things to do at Chattanooga Film Festival and with MES Film Club has always been to combine a band we love with a film we love and the stars have truly aligned for us on this one. Join us at Cine-Rama for a special one night only presentation of the animated sci-fi masterwork Fantastic Planet with a special appearance by Nashville's ultra-rad Bad Friend.

Check out Bad Friend Here: https://badfriendnashville.bandcamp.com/

Official Film Synopsis:
Nothing else has ever looked or felt like director René Laloux’s animated marvel Fantastic Planet, a politically minded and visually inventive work of science fiction. The film is set on a distant planet called Ygam, where enslaved humans (Oms) are the playthings of giant blue native inhabitants (Draags). After Terr, kept as a pet since infancy, escapes from his gigantic child captor, he is swept up by a band of radical fellow Oms who are resisting the Draags’ oppression and violence. With its eerie, coolly surreal cutout animation by Roland Topor; brilliant psychedelic jazz score by Alain Goraguer; and wondrous creatures and landscapes, this Cannes-awarded 1973 counterculture classic is a perennially compelling statement against conformity and violence.

Tickets are just 8 dollars in advance 10 dollars the day of the show there are a limited number available for this screening so do not miss out on one of the most mind expanding experiences your likely to have in a cinema this year and a band that we think you'll love just as much.

Claire Bloomfield is a local contemporary photographer originally from Nashville, TN. She received her BFA in photography from UTC in 2014. After spending time in India and Sundog Eco Village in Montana she began to make work based around Western food culture and ritual practices of the East. Her photographs are created using a multi media processes. She cultivates sculptures with organic and synthetic materials, sometimes even growing her own plants to make work. She uses her desktop scanner to create unified painterly photographs. She views her work as altarpieces that are created, scanned and erased. The work lives in the moment, and her photographs are traces. She believes it is important to have a process in photography. "Darkrooms are becoming outdated and technology is on the rise. We must use technology to our advantage as artists, but lets not forget those eureka moments upon developing a canister of film. These are moments magic and creation as one.”

Chimes at Midnight

Chimes at Midnight

The crowning achievement of Orson Welles’s extraordinary film career, Chimes at Midnight was the culmination of the filmmaker’s lifelong obsession with Shakespeare’s ultimate rapscallion, Sir John Falstaff. Usually a comic supporting figure, Falstaff—the loyal, often soused friend of King Henry IV’s wayward son Prince Hal—here becomes the focus: a robustly funny and ultimately tragic screen antihero played by Welles with looming, lumbering grace. Integrating elements from both Henry IV plays as well as Richard II, Henry V, and The Merry Wives of Windsor, Welles created a gritty and unorthodox Shakespeare film, one that he intended, he said, as “a lament . . . for the death of Merrie England.” Poetic, philosophical, and visceral—with a kinetic centerpiece battle sequence that rivals anything else in the director’s body of work—Chimes at Midnight is as monumental as the figure at its heart.

Scanners

Scanners

With Scanners, David Cronenberg plunges us into one of his most terrifying and thrilling sci-fi worlds. After a man with extraordinary—and frighteningly destructive—telepathic abilities is nabbed by agents from a mysterious rogue corporation, he discovers he is far from the only possessor of such strange powers, and that some of the other “scanners” have their minds set on world domination, while others are trying to stop them. A trademark Cronenberg combination of the visceral and the cerebral, this phenomenally gruesome and provocative film about the expanses and limits of the human mind was the Canadian director’s breakout hit in the United States.

Cine-Rama is proud to present this landmark film in a gorgeously restored new format sure to make your head explode just like in the film's most iconic scene. Tickets are only $8 dollars all proceeds of which go towards helping us keep movie magic alive in Chattanooga!
