4:00PM
BUILD THE WALL
by Joe Swanberg. 2020. 57 min.

BUILD THE WALL tackles the fantasy of isolation, showing the appeals — drawing peacefully in the woods, tending to pot plants — but also a healthy dose of unsocialized behavior, anxiety about aging, and dealing with old friends with divergent life paths.

- Kentucker Audley

Starring Kent Osborne, Jane Adams and Kevin Bewersdorf, a longtime Rockaway resident who also composed the score and will introduce the film.

5:05PM
END OF THE SEASON
by Jason Evans. 2020. 13 min.

Shot in Oregon as it approaches the off-season, this gorgeous black-and-white portrait of Matsutake mushroom hunters meditates on the possibility of freedom through isolation.

AN OCCURRENCE AT ARVERNE by Robert Broadhurst. 2020. 7 min.

A man arrives at an unknown home with an unknown agenda. Filmed in the off-season in Arverne, Robert Broadhurst's short film puts the viewer in charge of how the story unfolds.

5:25PM
ROSA
by Suha Araj. 2020. 23 min.

While working at her aunt's flower shop, Rosa takes her job underground when she begins a side business of shipping undocumented bodies to their home countries for burial.

EVICTION by Steve Loff. 2006. 5 min.

Real-time footage of a family being forcibly removed from their Harlem home.

INSIDE WOMEN INSIDE by Christine Choy & Cynthia Maurizio. Produced by Third World Newsreel. 1978. 21 min.

A disgraceful example of the United State’s justice system, INSIDE WOMEN INSIDE tells the stories of women in prison in the 70’s. Testimonials of their regularly violated human rights illustrate profound isolation not only through confinement, but also through neglect and degradation. Despite the most destitute of circumstances, these women demonstrate staggering strength in their ability to organize and make demands.

Thanks to the generous contributions of The Women’s Film Preservation Fund of New York Women in Film & Television, INSIDE WOMEN INSIDE has been preserved.

6:15PM
SEVEN YEARS IN MAY
by Affonso Uchôa. 2019. 42 min.

In a night in May, seven years ago, Rafael was arriving home from work. When he was opening the gate, someone called his name. He looked back and saw people he didn’t know. Rafael left his house carried by the unknown people and never came back. Since then he lives as if that night has never ended.

Remote discussion with Affonso Uchôa following screening.

7:40 PM
NOTHING BUT A MAN
by Michael Roemer. 1964. 96 min.

Duff (Ivan Dixon), a single-father railway worker new to town, falls in love with Josie (Abbey Lincoln), a schoolteacher and daughter of the disapproving local preacher, in Jim Crow Birmingham. They fight to survive together in a place where every aspect of daily life—work, relationships, parenthood, Church—is tainted by pervasive, systemic racism. A noted landmark of independent cinema, which features a nearly all-black cast and is said to have been Malcolm X’s favorite film, Nothing But a Man holds a significance that stretches far beyond its groundbreaking production history. Every performance, every emotion, every interaction is of such clarity and depth that this masterpiece is one of the rare films whose greatness can never be overstated.
