    Shakespeare On Film: Chimes At Midnight

    Falstaff commands center stage in Chimes at Midnight, Orson Welles’ groundbreaking film. Considered by some to be Welles’ greatest accomplishment in film, "Chimes at Midnight" incorporates elements of five of Shakespeare’s plays to reframe the larger-than-life comedic presence of Falstaff to magnificent effect.

    Joseph McBride (School of Cinema, San Francisco State University, author of Orson Welles), will join moderator Jim Kearney (English, UCSB) for a post-screening discussion.

    Gabriel Over The White House

    Newly-elected President Judson “Major” Hammond (Walter Huston) falls into a coma after a car accident, and is resurrected a changed man in this fascist fantasy, shaped and promoted by media tycoon William Randolph Hearst and directed by former Hearst animator Gregory La Cava. No longer a glad-handing partisan hack, Hammond embarks on a single-minded mission to consolidate power in the executive branch. He violently eliminates enemies and rivals, and strong-arms the European powers into both unequivocal disarmament and the immediate repayment of war debt to the U.S.

    14: Dred Scott, Wong Kim & Vanessa Lopez

    While the Fourteenth Amendment guarantees citizenship to those born or naturalized in the U.S., this Constitutional right has endured attacks since its passage in 1868, and it continues to be at risk today. "14: Dred Scott, Wong Kim Ark & Vanessa Lopez" traces these battles from their roots in the struggles against slavery prior to the Civil War, to the fight against the Chinese Exclusion Act in the late nineteenth century, to current anti-immigrant agitation.

The fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister: Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman).

    Tempestad

    Tempestad presents the parallel stories of two women victimized by corruption in Mexico. In this lyrical documentary, the two subjects' voices echo over the landscape and highways of Mexico, moving from north to south. They describe how official injustice allowed violence to take control of their lives, desires, and dreams. The film conveys the paralyzing power of fear: fear as a sickness that prevents you from taking a stand on your future and the future of your children, and which clouds your ability to dream and grow.
