Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool tracks the artist’s history from his affluent upbringing as the son of a prominent Illinois dentist, through his training at Julliard in New York, and on to the truly remarkable records and performances which defined his apex years of creativity from the mid 1950s to the late 1970s. Fans of Davis will revel in watching never-before-seen footage and learning more about the complex man behind his canonical body of music.
Arresting and unique, Midnight Traveler is at once an intimate study of displacement as well as a compelling road movie. The journey of the Afghani Fazili family begins in Tajikistan, where a long wait has resulted in the rejection of their asylum claim. Over the next several years, Hassan Fazili uses cell phones to film his family’s journey back to Afghanistan, and then through Iran, Turkey, Bulgaria, and Serbia.
In his debut feature, director Ian Soroka creates an evocative portrait of the southern Slovenian landscape that facilitated what is considered to be Europe’s most effective resistance movement during World War II.
