20 Feet from Stardom

Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present a “Festival Flashback” of “20 Feet from Stardom” on Tuesday, May 11 at 4 and 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre. The rousing and inspiring “20 Feet from Stardom” won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature at the 2014 Academy Awards. Meet the unsung heroes behind the greatest music of our time. Millions know their voices, but no one knows their names. In his compelling film “20 Feet from Stardom”, award-winning director Morgan Neville shines a spotlight on the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, the film is both a tribute to the unsung voices who brought shape and style to popular music and a reflection on the conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent harmonizing with others.

Crip Camp

“Crip Camp” is nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature at this year’s Oscars. In the early 1970s, teenagers with disabilities faced a future shaped by isolation, discrimination and institutionalization. Camp Jened — a ramshackle camp “for the handicapped” in the Catskills — exploded those confines. Jened was their freewheeling Utopia, a place with summertime sports, smoking and makeout sessions awaiting everyone, and campers felt fulfilled as human beings. Their bonds endured as they migrated West to Berkeley, California — a promised land for a growing and diverse disability community — where friends from Camp Jened realized that disruption and unity might secure life-changing accessibility for millions. Co-directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Nicole Newnham and film mixer and former camper Jim LeBrecht, this joyous and exuberant documentary arrives the same year as the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Four Good Days

Director Rodrigo García is a master of empathy, and his confident direction guides two exceptionally nuanced performances by Glenn Close and Mila Kunis in this powerful film inspired by a true story.

When Deb (Glenn Close) gets a surprise knock on her front door one evening, she barely recognizes her own adult daughter standing on the porch. Molly (Mila Kunis) has been transformed by yet another year of homelessness and addiction. She is toothless, ragged, emaciated and shaking from withdrawal symptoms — and now she begs Deb for one final chance to help her get clean.

Oliver Hermanus explores the toxic masculinity of Apartheid-era South Africa and the twin forces of racism and homophobia that fed it in “Moffie” – a powerful drama about a young gay military conscript trying to remain invisible. To be a mo?e is to be weak, e?eminate, illegal. The year is 1981 and South Africa’s white minority government is embroiled in a con?ict on the southern Angolan border. Like all white boys over the age of 16, Nicholas Van der Swart must complete two years of compulsory military service to defend the Apartheid regime. The threat of communism and “die swart gevaar” (the so-called black danger) is at an all-time high. But that’s not the only danger Nicholas faces. He must survive the brutality of the army – something that becomes even more di?cult when a connection is sparked between him and a fellow recruit.

My Octopus Teacher

“My Octopus Teacher” is nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature at this year’s Oscars. Shot over eight years, with 3000 hours of footage, “My Octopus Teacher” documents a never-before-seen unique friendship and interaction between a human and an octopus. After years spent filming some of the planet’s most dangerous animals, Craig Foster was burned out and depressed, his family relationships in turmoil. He decided to put a halt to his career to reconnect with his own roots — the magical underwater world of the kelp forest off the coast of his hometown, Cape Town, South Africa. For nearly a decade, Craig went diving daily in the icy cold waters, ditching wetsuit and scuba rig in one of the most predator dense places on earth. The common octopus he met and tracked became first his subject, then his teacher, showing him things no human had ever witnessed.
