Loudon Wainwright III: Surviving Twin

Grammy-winning singer Loudon Wainwright III reflects upon his unique relationship with his father in an evening of original songs and heartfelt stories.

There is a satirical, even silly bent to many of his songs; at the same time, there is no one to match him for unsparing self-examination, clearly expressing his failings, as a husband, father and human in meter, melody and rhyme.

The Desert Bride (La Novia del Desierto)

While traveling across Argentina to a new job, a longtime maid encounters a salesman who opens her eyes to life's beauty and possibilities.

Though it runs a mere 78 minutes, The Desert Bride is strikingly languorous and open-ended, its graceful silences and unhurried rhythms speaking to the intriguing identity crisis of its protagonist.

Gabriel and the Mountain

In a drama based on a true story, Brazilian backpacker Gabriel Buchmann spends his gap year exploring Africa. Why does he die in the Malawi mountains?

Director Barbosa's love letter to his late friend is emotionally satisfying and cinematically splendid, with social commentary shoe-horned in for better or worse.

Outlaw King

In 14th-century Scotland, Robert the Bruce claims the crown and leads a fierce uprising to win back the country's independence from English rule.

Outlaw King is an old-school history lesson, but Mackenzie presents it with a modern flare, and its themes of a small group overthrowing the ruling power are especially timely today.
