“Featuring rare interviews with Danish architect, Jorn Utzon (b. 1918-d.2008), the film documents the stunning ups and downs in the lengthy design and construction process of the Sydney Opera House (1959-73)… Characterized by some as a “tempestuous saga” the story is punctuated by lively testimonies from a diverse cast of political and professional participants. Midway through construction, Utzon’s firm was removed from the project! In spite of legendary resistance encountered in the land down under, the design teams’ original vision shines through in the end, remaining a compelling symbol challenging others to push the limits of what is possible.” Architecture + Design Film Festival, Winnipeg Film Group

Filmed over four years, Noam Chomsky – widely regarded as the most important intellectual alive – unpacked the principles that have brought us to the crossroads of historically unprecedented inequality – tracing a half-century of policies designed to favor the most wealthy at the expense of the majority – while also looking back on his own life of activism and political participation. Profoundly personal and thought provoking, Chomsky provides penetrating insight into the death of the middle class, and swan song of functioning democracy.

Featuring Alan Rickman in his final onscreen role, “This riveting drone thriller is propelled by a crack cast led by Helen Mirren as single-minded British Col. Katherine Powell. She’s determined to finally nab the radicalized Englishwoman she’s been tailing for six years, now finally located in a house in Kenya. The capture plan, monitored with tiny flying drones half a world away, escalates to a kill mission with evidence of a suicide plot. Toronto Star
