The Melting Family
Nicole Groton / USA / 90 min
Sunday, Nov 15
Nicole Groton’s candidly personal film chronicles the episodes that led a single nuclear unit to grow exponentially through seven divorces and remarriages, becoming a revealing portrait of modern-day families. Home videos anchor the filmmaker’s memories of a complex childhood, while family members deconstruct 20 years of romances, adulteries, births and unexpected deaths, and their profound impact on the extended clan. The Melting Family is a generous, insightful project that challenges conventional views of the “broken family.”

Sunday, Nov 15
Intimately capturing an under- acknowledged slice of American industry, Ben Powell’s vibrantly shot film follows the voyage of a Mississippi towboat and its precious cargo to its destination in New Orleans. The hardy crew, representing a diverse microcosm of American river culture, from ambitious newcomers to seasoned sea dogs, sign on for month-long tours of duty. Misfits on land, they find purpose – and a welcome paycheck – for their part in keeping this essential industrial economic ecosystem afloat.
Above and Below
Nicolas Steiner/ Switzerland, Germany, USA /110 min Order
Saturday, Nov 14
Nicolas Steiner’s sublime exploration of lives lived on the fringe is set in a seemingly apocalyptic world that happens to be our own. Living above ground, April dons a spacesuit to simulate life on Mars as part of a remote science program in Utah, while Dave has left modern society for an abandoned military bunker in the California desert. Meanwhile, finding shelter below, in Las Vegas storm drains, are Lalo, Rick and Cindy, who contend with frequent, dangerous flooding to survive on their own terms.
Ian Cheney/ USA / 70 min
Monday, Nov 16
Without water, there is no life. Bluespace sets out on a creative expedition to two planets: Earth, where rising seas threaten our existence, and Mars, whose canals and ice offer science-fiction authors and astrobiologists the promise of terraforming and colonization. As climate and food scientists, riverkeepers and Sandy survivors explore the challenges facing waterfront cities like New York and Venice, Ian Cheney questions our future relationship with the natural world as one of potential lifesaving cooperation or ill-fated attempts at domination.

A real-life Breaking Bad for the psychedelic set, The Sunshine Makers reveals the entertaining, untold story of Nicholas Sand and Tim Scully, the unlikely duo at the heart of 1960s American drug counterculture. United in a utopian mission to save the planet through the consciousness- raising power of LSD, these underground chemists manufactured a massive amount of acid, including the gold standard for quality LSD, Orange Sunshine, as they tried to stay one step ahead of the feds.
