            Where his prior film, the acclaimed epic AQUARELA, was a reminder of the fragility of human tenure on earth, in GUNDA, master filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky reminds us that we share our planet with billions of other animals. Through encounters with a mother sow (the eponymous Gunda...), two ingenious cows, and a scene-stealing, one-legged chicken, Kossakovsky movingly recalibrates our moral universe, reminding us of the inherent value of life and the mystery of all animal consciousness, including our own.LONG SYNOPSISIn the vastness of the living world, we share our planet with billions of farm animals. However, in industrialized societies we are conditioned to ignore the sentience of these animals, often regarded as a passive resource. Where his prior film AQUARELA was a reminder of the fragility of human tenure on earth, in GUNDA, master filmmaker Victor Kossakovsky offers a radically recalibrated moral universe, where encounters with a mother sow (the eponymous Gunda), two ingenious cows, and a scene-stealing, one-legged chicken, remind us of the inherent value of life for all beings. By returning a pig's gaze, listening to a cow's gentle lowing, or observing a chicken find its wings, Kossakovsky voids any pretension that we are unique in our capacity for emotion, consciousness or will. Immersed in these animals lives, lived to the full in joy and pain, it becomes inescapable that humankind must swiftly undertake the major changes necessary to end mass exploitation of our fellow creatures. GUNDA is Kossakovsky's deeply personal attempt to renew our vision of life and meditate on the mystery of all animal consciousness, including our own.

            THE CATALANOTTI METHOD - Carmelo Catalanotti was murdered by a stab to the chest, but this murder if only for the strange composure of the body and the absence of blood, immediately presents something strange. Montalbano soon discovers that the victim was a loan shark, albeit in ...a fair way or at least not particularly greedy. But Catalanotti was not just a usurer, he was above all a fervent and original theatre artist, soul and founder of Trinacriarte, a very active amateur theater company from Vigta. The Trinacriarte is not a simple amateur company, a good many of its members are literally possessed, if not possessed by the passion for the theater. Carmelo Catalanotti was the guru of this group, a guru who knew how to be brilliant, but also cruel and sadistic. So much so that Montalbano realizes that it is precisely in his tragic art and his very personal and disturbing Method in which the solution lies to the mystery of his death.

            Two worthy Academy Award nominees from 1950s Sunset Boulevard actor William Holden and director Billy Wilder reteamed three years later for the gripping World War II drama, STALAG 17. The result was another Best Director nomination for Wilder (his fourth), and the elusive Best Ac...tor Oscar win for Holden. Holden portrays the jaded, scheming Sergeant J.J. Sefton, a prisoner at the notorious German prison camp, who spends his days dreaming up rackets and trading with the Germans for special privileges. But when two prisoners are killed in an escape attempt, it becomes obvious that there is a spy among the prisoners. Is it Sefton? Famed producer/director Otto Preminger tackles a rare acting role as the camps commandant; actor Robert Strauss won a Supporting Actor nomination for his role as Animal.

            This documentary explores Pompeii, that city cloaked in mystery which, over the course of history, has influenced culture and art, from Neoclassicism to Contemporary Art, through images and words by the great artists and writers who experienced, visited and imagined it: from Plin...y the Younger to Picasso, from Emily Dickinson to Jean Cocteau. The film doesnt just deal with the volcano eruption, which has gone down in history, but with what the city of Pompeii itself was actually like: how its citizens lived their lives, spent their free time, experienced pleasure, passion, religion and their fate.
