THREE FILMS ON COMPASSION AND CHANGE

As the nation focuses on systemic racial injustice and disparity, it’s time to pause for reflection. In conjunction with Magnolia Pictures, we are offering three important documentaries that engage and inspire, with eloquent and moving perspectives from authors James Baldwin and Toni Morrison and activists involved in the Ferguson Uprising. All give us a deeper understanding of the need for compassion and change in our nation.

You may buy any one of these for $6.99, or all three for $15 (see below). Once purchased, the files never expire. Watch anytime and keep them for reference in your film library. Proceeds will be split 50-50 between Harbor Theater and Magnolia Pictures, and we will donate our share to one of these charities:

CAMPAIGN ZER0
A group dedicated to police reform and reducing
violence through policy change.
 
THE BAIL PROJECT
A revolving fund that helps low-income people pay bail.
After a case closes and bail is returned, the same money
can help someone else.
 
NAACP LEGAL DEFENSE AND EDUCATIONAL FUND
Fights for racial justice through litigation, advocacy,
and public education.

History repeats itself? Will we listen and learn?

Whose Streets? is a documentary of the Ferguson (Missouri) uprising after the slaying of unarmed Michael Brown by a police officer ….told by the activists and leaders who lived and breathed it. Filmmakers Saabah Folayan and Doman Davis explain, “This is more than a documentary...this is our story to tell. Whose Streets? is a powerful battle cry from a generation fighting, not for their civil rights, but for their right to live.”

Master filmmaker Raoul Peck examines race in America, using the words of James Baldwin (from a book he was writing when he died), about the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr., Medgar Evans and Malcolm X. Using rich archival material, I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for.

TONI MORRSION: The Pieces I am offers an intimate meditation on the life and works of the legendary writer and Nobel prize-winner who died shortly after this film was released in 2019. Inspired to write because no one took a “little black girl” seriously, Morrison reflects on race, history, America and the human condition, with additional interviews with Angela Davis, Fran Lebowitz, Oprah Winfrey, and art by contemporary African-American artists including Kara Walker, Rashid Johnson and Kerry James Marshall.

ELLA: JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS

01 hours 30 minutes
Available June 26
Ella Fitzgerald was a 15-year-old street kid when she won a talent contest in 1934 at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem. Within months she was a star. ELLA FITZGERALD: JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS follows her extraordinary journey over six decades as her sublime voice transforms the tragedies of her own life and the troubles of her times into joy. The film uses never-before-seen images and unheard interviews to bring Ella Fitzgerald to life and to tell the story of her music. Here is an Ella the world never knew – tough, thoughtful, funny, a dazzling musical innovator. The film also uncovers Ella’s commitment to the battle for Civil Rights; and it explores the conflicts that always haunted this intensely private woman: the struggle to reconcile her hunger for adoring audiences with her longing for a domestic life with her husband and son.

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: Lucian Freud: A Self Portrait

01 hours 30 minutes
For the first time in history the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, is bringing together Lucian Freud’s self-portraits.The exhibition will display more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings in which this modern master of British art turned his unflinching eye firmly on himself. Spanning nearly seven decades, his self-portraits give a fascinating insight into both his psyche and his development as a painter. This film is very much about the self, the progress of time and one man’s intense struggle with the making of making art.
