How to Kill 14 People without Saying a Word

Local Filmmaker / Red Carpet Premiere

showtimes: 

  • Oct 28 1pm

Special Admission: Tickets $20

Plot: This is an explosive film within the currently polarized political climate - Freedom of Speech, university protests and riots, terrorism, communism, fascism, and nazism are held up to the light. The interviewees include Cenk Uygur, the CEO of the Young Turks Network, Dr. Philip Zimbardo, the architect of the Stanford Prison Experiment, Cassie Jaye, the director of the politically charged Men’s Rights Activism documentary The Red Pill, Sabo, the Los Angeles renegade street artist, and Gavin McInnes, the controversial conservative pundit. “This could easily compete with [Dinesh] D’Souza.” says Gregg Bennett, Hollywood screenwriter. “This film is absolutely amazing! You’ve hit the nail right on the head. This will be an award-winning, news-generating, shit-stirring film that will bring out all the people who have had enough of this shit.” says John Galletta, CEO Brothers & Arms USA. The film deconstructs the pervasive ideology that both permitted the murder of 14 innocent people by Islamic terrorists in San Bernardino, CA in 2015, and gave rise to the unrest and riots on university campuses and major cities across America.

Rated R for language

Plot: One night, in front of a bodega in Brooklyn's Bed-Stuy neighborhood, Manny Ortega witnesses a white police officer wrongfully gun down a neighborhood street hustler, and Manny films the incident on his phone. Now he's faced with a dilemma: release the video and bring unwanted exposure to himself and his family, or keep the video private and be complicit in the injustice? With a deep sense of humanity and a deft directorial hand, Reinaldo Marcus Green smartly reformulates the traditional construction of "protagonist" to magnify the power of perspective. Green tells the story of how the footage affects the lives of three upstanding men in Bed-Stuy--a young father striving to support his new family, an African American cop dealing with the fallout of his colleague's mistake, and a star high school athlete who becomes politicized by the incident. Each man is very different, but they equally feel the urgency of the question they must all face: should I take moral action or remain safely on the sidelines? Green provokes viewers to ask themselves the same question.

Plot: Bubbling up from somewhere in the realm of madness and chaos comes the eagerly awaited latest from grandiose filmmaker Panos Cosmatos. Somewhere in the primal wilderness near the Shadow Mountains in the year 1983, Red Miller (Nicolas Cage) has fallen deeply for the beguiling Mandy Bloom (Andrea Riseborough). But the life he has made for himself comes suddenly and horrifyingly crashing down when a vile band of ravaging idolaters and supernatural creatures penetrate his idyllic paradise with vicious fury. A broken man, Red now lives for one thing only—to hunt down these maniacal villains and exact swift vengeance.

In his delicious follow-up to cult hit BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW, Cosmatos gleefully demonstrates an audacious command of tone and atmosphere, conjuring an ethereal treat for the senses that begs to be seen on a big screen.

“Nicolas Cage gives the performance of a lifetime.”
