Pride is inspired by an extraordinary true story. It’s the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.

Starring Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, Dominic West, Paddy Considine

NOSFERATU, featuring live score by MOOD AREA 52

NOSFERATU, featuring live score by MOOD AREA 52

Horror – 1922 – GERMANY – 81 Minutes – Film Arts Guild – Unrated

VIEW TRAILER

F. W. Murnau’s landmark vampire film Nosferatu isn’t merely a variation on Bram Stoker’s Dracula: it’s a direct steal, so much so that Stoker’s widow went to court, demanding in vain that the Murnau film be suppressed and destroyed. The character names have been changed to protect the guilty (in the original German prints, at least), but devotees of Stoker will have little trouble recognizing their Dracula counterparts. The film begins in the Carpathian mountains, where real estate agent Hutter (Gustav von Wagenheim) has arrived to close a sale with the reclusive Herr Orlok (Max Schreck). Despite the feverish warnings of the local peasants, Hutter insists upon completing his journey to Orlok’s sinister castle. While enjoying his host’s hospitality, Hutter accidently cuts his finger-whereupon Orlok tips his hand by staring intently at the bloody digit, licking his lips. Hutter catches on that Orlok is no ordinary mortal when he witnesses the vampiric nobleman loading himself into a coffin in preparation for his journey to Bremen. By the time the ship bearing Orlok arrives at its destination, the captain and crew have all been killed-and partially devoured. There follows a wave of mysterious deaths in Bremen, which the local authorities attribute to a plague of some sort. But Ellen, Hutter’s wife, knows better. Armed with the knowledge that a vampire will perish upon exposure to the rays of the sun, Ellen offers herself to Orlok, deliberately keeping him “entertained” until sunrise. At the cost of her own life, Ellen ends Orlok’s reign of terror once and for all. Rumors still persist that Max Schreck, the actor playing Nosferatu, was actually another, better-known performer in disguise. Whatever the case, Schreck’s natural countenance was buried under one of the most repulsive facial makeups in cinema history.

Directed by F. W. Murnau

Their most recent releases, Company Town and 1952 Philanski House, blend roots rock, instrumental tango, jazz, blues, Balkan influences, ranchera, and American folk, country, Brechtian cabaret, and classical music.

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW with live shadowcast performance 

Comedy/Musical – 1975 – USA – 100 Minutes – 20th Century Fox – Rated R

VIEW TRAILER

This low-budget freak show/cult classic/cultural institution concerns the misadventures of Brad Majors (Barry Bostwick) and Janet Weiss (Susan Sarandon) inside a strange mansion that they come across on a rainy night. After the wholesome pair profess their love through an opening song, their car breaks down in the woods, and they seek refuge in a towering castle nearby. Greeting them at the door is a ghoulish butler named Riff Raff (Richard O’Brien), who introduces them to a bacchanalian collection of partygoers dressed in outfits from some sort of interplanetary thrift shop. The host of this gathering is a transvestite clad in lingerie, Dr. Frank N. Furter (Tim Curry), a mad scientist who claims to be from another planet. With assistants Columbia (Nell Campbell) and Magenta (Patricia Quinn) looking on, Frank unveils his latest creation — a figure wrapped in gauze and submerged in a tank full of liquid. With the addition of colored dyes and some assistance from the weather, Frank brings to life a blonde young beefcake wearing nothing but skimpy shorts, who launches into song in his first minute of life. Just when Brad and Janet think things couldn’t get any stranger, a biker (Meat Loaf) bursts onto the scene to reclaim Columbia, his ex-girlfriend. When Frank kills the biker, it’s clear that Brad and Janet will be guests for the night, and that they may be next on Frank’s list — whether for murder or carnal delights is uncertain. And just what is that mystery meat they’re eating for dinner, anyway? In addition to playing Riff Raff, O’Brien wrote the catchy songs, with John Barry and Richard Hartley composing the score.

Directed by Jim Sharman

Starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Richard O’Brien, Patricia Quinn, Meat Loaf

IMMIGRATION: THE UNPARDONABLE SIN

Documentary/Family/News – 2013 – USA – 80 Minutes – Unrated

VIEW TRAILER

Immigration “the unpardonable sin” is a full feature documentary film conceived in order to explore current issues in the United States Immigration process both from a personal awareness and community wide experience. The film provides a revealing perspective of the immigration debate told from professionals working in the immigration field and from a representative subset of the general public without added media hype and political polarization. Shot from a first hand knowledge of cumbersome immigration difficulties, the film presents various challenges involved in navigating today’s immigration system and honest, balanced, and informative views on what ought to be done to resolve the broken United States Immigration system.

During the course of the film, the sentiments of Americans toward the current immigration system, the media and political approach, the issues on migrant diversity, migrant injustice, migrant youth, and the effects of immigration on the US border security and economic viability are explored. The goal of this film is to document what expert immigration professionals and public majority think of our approach to the outdated immigration system and how to effectively achieve much delayed and needed comprehensive immigration reform.

Produced & Directed by Andrew Mwangi
