April Film Highlights:

  • April 3: Manuscripts Don't Burn (2013, Mohammad Rasoulof): Drawing from the true story of the government's attempted 1995 murder of several prominent writers and intellectuals, Rasoulof imagines a repressive regime so pervasive that even the morally righteous are subsumed or cast aside

  • April 17: Stop Making Sense (1984, Jonathan Demme): Universally acclaimed as one of the best concert films ever made, Jonathan Demme's extraordinary documentary captures the groundbreaking Talking Heads in performance at their peak.
