Join us Tuesdays at 7pm, March 3, 10, 17 & 24, 2015, for a sampler of Documentary and Mockumentary films in the BIMA Auditorium:
WHY WE FIGHT (2005)
This documentary by Eugene Jarecki begins with the series of short films of the same title produced by Frank Capra in the 1940s and continues to the present with what he calls a "bipartisan inquiry into the workings of the military industrial complex and the rise of American empire."
THE LAST WALTZ (1978)
Referred to by Roger Ebert as "a revealing document of a time," Martin Scorsese's chronicle of The Band's legendary last concert features conversation with and performances by myriad legendary musicians, including Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan, among others.
WASTE LAND (2010)
This profile of work by Brazilian-born, Brooklyn-based artist Vik Muniz reveals a full-spectrum view of the artist's process and its transformation into a tool for social justice for pickers of recycled goods at Rio de Janiero's Jardim Gramacho, the world's largest garbage dump.
BEST IN SHOW (2000)
This satire of the documentary film format by Christopher Guest offers a detailed look into the lives of five dogs and their owners on their way to Philadelphia for the Mayflower Kennel Club Dog Show.
The BIMA Bistro stays open until 7pm in advance of each screening for drinks, food and small bites.
