Albert Nobbs

“Albert Nobbs” received three Academy Award nominations, including Best Actress for Glenn Close, Best Supporting Actress for Janet McTeer and Best Achievement in Makeup. The actresses also received Golden Globe nominations in the same categories, and the film garnered a third Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song. Multiple Academy Award and Golden Globe nominated actress Glenn Close stars in this emotional and thought-provoking tale. “Albert Nobbs” boasts an all-star ensemble supporting cast, including Mia Wasikowska, Janet McTeer, Aaron Johnson, Brendan Gleeson and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. In 19th-century Ireland, painfully shy butler Albert Nobbs (Glenn Close) hides an incredible secret: He is really a she. Terrified that someone will discover her identity, Albert keeps a very low profile, until the arrival of Hubert Page (Janet McTeer) registers a sea change in Albert's life.

American Traitor: The Trial of Axis Sally

“American Traitor: The Trial of Axis Sally” features an award-winning ensemble cast, including Academy Award-winner Al Pacino, Meadow Williams and Thomas Kretschmann. She was beautiful. She was talented. She was American — and she was tried for treason. She was Axis Sally, and her story has never been told. In 1948, renowned attorney James J. Laughlin (Oscar-winner Al Pacino) gets assigned a case that will captivate the public: Defend Nazi broadcaster Mildred Gillars (Meadow Williams), aka “Axis Sally.” In WWII Germany, Gillars was hired by the Third Reich’s Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels (Thomas Kretschmann) to broadcast propaganda to U.S. forces overseas and their families in America. With her love and mentor Max Otto Koischwitz, Gillars kept “the boys” amused — until the Allies won the war and Gillars went on trial.

Planet of the Humans

“Planet of the Humans” takes a harsh look at how the environmental movement has lost the battle through well-meaning but disastrous choices, including the belief that solar panels and windmills would save us, and by giving in to the corporate interests of Wall Street. The film is the debut movie from Jeff Gibbs, whom award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore calls “a brave and brilliant filmmaker whose new voice must be heard.” Gibbs is a lifelong environmentalist and longtime collaborator of Moore’s with whom he co-produced “Bowling for Columbine” and “Fahrenheit 9/11”. “Planet of the Humans” first screened as a work in progress at the most recent Traverse City Film Festival where it was a huge audience favorite. Moore and Gibbs decided that with the American public — and much of the world — confined to their homes during the pandemic and suddenly having to consider the role humans and their behavior have played in our fragile ecosystems, the moment was too urgent to wait.

Queen Marie

Devastated by the First World War and plunged into political controversy, Romania's every hope accompanies its queen on her mission to Paris to lobby for international recognition of its great unification at the 1919 peace talks. Princess Marie of Edinburgh was born in 1875, one of Queen Victoria’s countless granddaughters. At the age of seventeen she was coerced into a dynastic marriage with Crown Prince Ferdinand of Romania. As a good royal and a good Victorian, Marie had a highly developed sense of duty and became a passionate champion of her adopted country. This passion is at the heart of “Queen Marie”. The story begins at the end of WWI. Initially neutral, Romania is invaded by Germany in 1916 and enters the war on the side of Britain and France. As one of the victorious allied nations, Romania earns a place in the Paris Peace Conference of 1919. Negotiations break down between Romanian Prime Minister Bratianu and French Prime Minister Clemenceau and Marie.

Sunflowers: Exhibition on Screen

Sedona International Film Festival presents the Exhibition on Screen series with “Sunflowers”. The event will show in Sedona on Tuesday, May 18 at 4 and 7 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre. Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers are among his most famous works, and are some of the most iconic paintings in the world. In an extraordinary exhibition, the Van Gogh Museum took a new and revealing look at the five publicly-owned versions of sunflowers in a vase. And once again, the Van Gogh museum opened its doors exclusively to Exhibition on Screen. They are immediately recognizable, but our film goes beyond the surface to explore the many questions and mysteries that surround these works. Why, for example, did Van Gogh choose the exotic sunflower with its long stem and golden crown? Indeed, when did the flower itself arrive in Europe and how had previous artists reacted to it? What was Van Gogh trying to say with his works and how does that differ from version to version?

The Human Factor

There was a time when peace appeared to be just within reach. What went so horribly wrong? “The Human Factor” – a new film by Dror Moreh, Academy Award-nominated director of “The Gatekeepers” – revisits three decades of an Israeli-Arab peace process from a unique perspective: that of the American mediators. These are the peacemakers who shuttled between Middle East capitals, spending hours with the region’s political heavyweights – prime ministers, generals, ex-terrorists, diplomats, dictators and presidents. These mediators gained intimate knowledge of the individuals and stories which dominated daily news around the world. For all those key figures – some working on the same issue for almost three decades – peace in the Middle East became a personal obsession, a mission which shaped their professional careers, affected their personal lives, and still occupies their minds.

While everyone is caught up in passionately loving someone who loves somebody else, a tragicomedy unfolds about art, fame, human folly, and the eternal desire to live a purposeful life.

Zenprov Comedy: Laugh Therapy

After 16 months away from the stage, Zenprov Comedy is fully vaccinated and ready to shoot a mega-dose of hilarity straight to your funny bone with their completely improvised show “Laugh Therapy” on Saturday, May 22 at 7:30. Due to Covid-19 restrictions at Mary D. Fisher Theatre in Sedona, a maximum of 50 seats will be available. Tickets are $15 each. This show is likely to sell out, so make sure to order early. While the troupe hasn’t performed live for more than a year, they have been practicing—a lot. Besides doing a handful of monthly online comedy shows on Zoom, they studied with professional Second City coach Jessica Mitilio in Chicago. “Working with Jessica as an improv coach is one of the bright spots for us this year,” said Derek Dujardin, director of Zenprov Comedy. “While we’ve always done consistently good shows, I felt the troupe had hit a plateau. Jessica helped us get to a whole new level of performance and has given us a host of new games to play together."
