This documentary about people connecting in the most unusual of ways comes from filmmaker Ido Haar. He’s the ideal person for this story; his 2004 documentary, Melting Siberia, detailed the search for his own grandfather. In Shaw, he unravels the tale of Samantha Montgomery and her double life. In the real world, she’s a caregiver in New Orleans, but online, she has unleashed her powerful singing talents in the YouTube alter ego Princess Shaw. On the other side of world, the Israeli producer and composer Kutiman spots her work and reaches out to create a song that becomes an unforgettable journey for the two subjects. And for viewers as well

For the final Live Read of the 2015–2016 season, series creator Jason Reitman is back to bring the event—in which he selects actors to recreate a live reading of a classic film project—to a close. Reitman—the originator of the much imitated but never duplicated concept whose films include Thank You for Smoking and Up in the Air—will assemble a top-flight cast of performers and a beloved movie title, both of which will be announced to the public shortly before the night of the Read—as is the Live Read custom, because his track record guarantees a spectacular evening. And also, because the surprise is a big part of the fun.

 

Followed by a reception hosted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

1986, 108 min, color, 35mm | Based on the novel by Colin MacInnes, developed for the screen by Michael Hamlyn, screenplay by Richard Burridge & Christopher Wicking and Don Macpherson, additional dialogue by Terry Johnson; directed by Julien Temple; with Eddie O’Connell, Patsy Kensit

 

 

Director Julien Temple’s seductive flamboyance elevates this 1986 adaptation of the Colin MacInnes novel on the concussive shock that popular culture had on the rigid class, race, and sexual attitudes of 1960s London. Colin (Eddie O’Connell) is a young photographer whose camera allows him access to the worlds of advertising and the high society scene—and his lens allows him to capture the changes wrought by music, fashion, and an eager, open-minded attitude about life; a point of view personified by the vivacious model and poster-girl-for-youth Crepe Suzette (Patsy Kensit). The battle for the soul of London between the squares and the cool is a culture war that Temple brings to wild, colorful, and perpetually moving life with a cast that moves from British icons in the movie world (James Fox) to the music world, with unforgettable turns by Sade, Ray Davies and—in one of his best (and sadly, under-recognized) roles, David Bowie.

1941, 58 min, B&W | Written by Spencer Williams; directed by Spencer Williams; with Spencer Williams and Cathryn Caviness

 

 

Luxuriant in its drama and featuring an all-black cast, this 1941 film was written and directed by Spencer Williams, the actor who made his career with his garrulous and charismatic portrayal of Kingfish in the controversial Amos and Andy TV series that was pulled from CBS in its ratings prime because of its promotion of stereotypes. Nothing could be farther from the characters in this film, which offers a take on the power of religion in the black community of the period. When a hunter (Williams) accidentally kills a woman, his blunder sets off a chain of events that includes a musical number that’s a de facto war between the musical forces of Heaven and Hell; it’s a dance-off squaring good (gospel) against evil (jazz). Energetic and completely likable, the cast features singers and actors who revel in the pleasure of getting to parade their talents before the camera without having to labor under the burden of playing sidekicks and domestics—the only roles offered in studio movies.

 

The Blood of Jesus will be preceded by the short film Regeneration (1923). This is the single surviving reel of Richard Norman’s heavily censored South Seas drama. Preserved by The Library of Congress.
