MARTIN EDEN

Adapted from a 1909 novel by Jack London yet set in a provocatively unspecified moment in Italy's history, Martin Eden is a passionate and enthralling narrative fresco in the tradition of the great Italian classics. Martin (played by the marvelously committed Luca Marinelli) is a self-taught proletarian with artistic aspirations who hopes that his dreams of becoming a writer will help him rise above his station and marry a wealthy young university student (Jessica Cressy). The dissatisfactions of working-class toil and bourgeois success lead to political awakening and destructive anxiety in this enveloping, superbly mounted bildungsroman.

AGGIE

Aggie is a feature-length documentary that explores the nexus of art, race, and justice through the story of art collector and philanthropist Agnes “Aggie” Gund’s life. Emmy-nominated director Catherine Gund focuses on her mother’s journey to give viewers an understanding of the power of art to transform consciousness and inspire social change. Aggie is internationally recognized for her robust and prescient support of artists–particularly women and people of color–and her unwavering commitment to social justice issues. After falling in love with art as a high-school student, Aggie discovers a new way of looking at the world. The film opens with Aggie selling Roy Lichtenstein’s “Masterpiece” For $165 million to start the Art for Justice Fund. The proceeds from one of the highest grossing artworks ever sold fuel a monumental effort to reform the American criminal justice system and end mass incarceration. The film captures Aggie as a true maverick who demonstrates the unique role and potential of collectors and benefactors to use art to fight justice.

MYTH OF A COLORBLIND FRANCE

AVAILABLE TO STREAM UNTIL 10/23

For more than a century, Black artists, authors, musicians and others have traveled to Paris to liberate themselves from the racism of the United States. What made these artistic innovators choose France? Why were the French fascinated by the newcomers? And to what extent was and is France truly colorblind?

Myth of a Colorblind France investigates these questions and examines the ways that racism has plagued not only Blacks fleeing the United States, but Africans and people of color in France today. The film explores the lives and careers of renowned African Americans who emigrated to Paris, including Josephine Baker, James Baldwin, Richard Wright, Beauford Delaney, Augusta Savage, and Lois Mailou Jones, and includes rare home movie footage of Henry Ossawa Tanner in Paris.

Myth of a Colorblind France features interviews with French scholars Michel Fabre and Francis Hofstein, as well as sculptor and author Barbara Chase-Riboud, poet James Emanuel, historian Tyler Stovall, filmmaker Thomas Allen Harris, graffiti artist Quik, hip hop producer Ben the Glorious Bastard, African drummer Karim Toure, and many more.

Marbles, a hapless stoner, can see ghosts. Using a homemade concoction of neurological medication and marijuana, he’s getting along just fine mediating between the living and the dead for a pittance of a living, until Officer Jayson Tagg, a recently dead wannabe super-cop, makes him an auspicious offer: help him find a serial killer in exchange for a hefty payout of life insurance. The money will allow Marbles to buy back his family house, the only link to happy memories Marbles shared with his late father, and which his domineering mother is selling.

With the help of Yana, Tagg’s alcoholic sister on house arrest, the unlikely duo of stoner and ghost cop follow clues to a pumping gay bar, chase a mysterious hooded figure, then run into Marbles’ mother who’s out on the town in an attempt to get over his father. The night gets more horrifying when they hit a body, and it turns out to be Tagg’s, moving on its own as if possessed by a gormless ghoul.

Marbles and Tagg must overcome perverted talent agents, soul-sucking ghouls, and their own differences, with time running out until Tagg turns into a soulless ghoul. While Marbles faces horrors from his past, Tagg must overcome his personal demons in order to save his newfound friend.

RBG Re-Release

Instead of the standard rental, RBG is being offered for $6.99 to own - once purchased, the link will never expire.
Magnolia Pictures will be donating all proceeds to the ACLU Women’s Rights Project, which was co-founded by Justice Ginsburg in 1972. While we're all mourning the loss of an American hero, we hope that viewers will be re-introduced to her work, and take her passion and courage back out into the world.

The Oscar®-nominated and Emmy®-winning documentary RBG, directed by award-winning filmmakers Betsy West and Julie Cohen, chronicles the inspiring and personal story of Ginsburg’s rise to the nation’s highest court while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. “From her Supreme Court chambers to her exercise room, what a privilege and a joy it was for us to train our cameras on RBG, and capture the story of this feisty, determined, brilliant woman who used her talents to make our world a better place," said West and Cohen.

Justice Ginsburg chose the American Civil Liberties Union as the vehicle for her legal work in large part due to its interconnection between civil liberties and civil rights, including women's rights. “I wanted to be a part of a general human rights agenda … [promoting] the equality of all people and the ability to be free,” she said. The ACLU and their Women’s Rights Project have made progress by establishing essential protections for women and challenging cultural norms that dictate traditional roles according to gender. Today, the ACLU continues to lead litigation and advocacy work that ensures everyone has the freedom to live, work, and learn, free from discrimination on the basis of sex.

In addition to owning the film, you'll also have access to a long-form Q&A with the directors from earlier this summer.
