A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps, and other sordid souls, is a place that reeks of death and hopelessness, where a lonely vampire is stalking the towns most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom...blood red.
The first Iranian Vampire Western, Ana Lily Amirpour's debut feature A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mash-up of genre, archetype and iconography, its prolific influences span spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave. Amped by a mix of Iranian rock, techno and Morricone-inspired riffs, its airy, anamorphic, black-and-white aesthetic and artfully drawn-out scenes combine the simmering tension of Sergio Leone with the surrealism of David Lynch.
Nominated for Best First Feature at the Film Independent Spirit Awards. Nominated for Best of Next! at the Sundance Film Festival.

Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, WHOSE STREETS? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters.
As the National Guard descends on Ferguson with military grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance. Filmmakers Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis know this story because they are the story. WHOSE STREETS? is a powerful battle cry from a generation fighting, not for their civil rights, but for the right to live.

His Girl Friday
In this undeniable gem of Hollywood's golden age, Walter, a hard-boiled newspaper editor, discovers that his ex-wife and former employee, Hildy, is set to marry a wet-blanket insurance salesman. Walter, certain that this is the wrong move for a strong-willed and ambitious woman such as Hildy, decides to sabotage her marital plans by enticing her with one last story--the execution of a convicted murderer.
A classic of the Screwball Rom-Com genre, HIS GIRL FRIDAY delivers the quick wit - and quicker dialogue - that only a pair like Hollywood legends Cary Grant and Rosalind Russel can!
Selected to be preserved at the National Film Preservation Board, USA.
"Perhaps the funniest, certainly the fastest talkie comedy ever made." - Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"...Hawks' willingness to sit back and let his lead actors' genius for comic timing carry the day that imbues HIS GIRL FRIDAY with its inexhaustible energy. Sixty years on it still makes 'When Harry Met Sally' look like 'Waiting For Godot.' In mime." - Simon Braud, Empire
