Shipwrights On The Crane

It’s December in Port Townsend, Washington; grey days, rain and temperatures in the 30’s. A small crew rips rotten planks off an 85 foot fishing vessel down from Juneau, Alaska. Then on a swaying scaffolding they precisely measure new three inch thick planks of yellow cedar, securing them with 9” lag bolts. The new planks are caulked with oakum and driven into the seams while the boat’s crew helps where they can. An ode to work and the intersections of skill, cooperation and physical strength; a deep dive into the reality of shipwright work. Directed by Charles Espey of Port Townsend.

Searching for Sugar Man

This cult classic documentary captivated audiences when it was released in 2012. It follows the increasingly bizarre search for legendary musician Sixto Rodriguez, whose folk music brought him stardom halfway across the world, and who seemingly vanished without a trace...or did he? Roger Ebert says it best in his review of the film: "I hope you're able to see this film. You deserve to...It exists because we need for it to."

My Darling Supermarket

Grocery store employees, today’s essential workers, get star treatment in MY DARLING SUPERMARKET (made prior to the pandemic). Set within a bright, colorful supermercado in São Paulo, Brazil, this charming, funny documentary glides through a seemingly endless array of vibrantly designed shelves and displays, but it’s the store’s employees who take center stage. A panoply of individuals with fears, hopes, and questions about their place in the universe are celebrated in a quirky portrait that juxtaposes their idiosyncrasies with the assumed mundanity of bringing food to our table. (Written by Film Forum)
