Guerrillas in our midst / [presented by] LD50 Films ; director, Amy Harrison ; writers, Margaret Herbig, Ron Hunnings.

"Presents a savvy exploration of the machinations of the commercial art- world during its boom in the 1980s, and brings the Guerrilla Girls to the screen. This anonymous group of art terrorists has succeeded in putting racism and sexism on the agenda in the art-world since 1985, and their witty and creative tactics have changed the face of political and cultural activism. Interviews with key figures in the Manhattan art scene, record-breaking auction sales, exhibition openings and interviews with the Guerrillas Girls themselves combine to highlight how the myth of the heroic male painter is perpetuated."-- Container

Yume / Warner Bros. Pictures ; a film by Akira Kurosawa ; presented by Steven Spielberg / Amblin Entertainment ; a Kurosawa Productions film ; produced by Hisao Kurosawa and Mike Y. Inoue ; written and directed by Akira Kurosawa.
[New York, N.Y.] : The Criterion Collection, [2016].
Unfolding in a series of eight mythic vignettes, this late work by Akira Kurosawa was inspired by the beloved director's own nighttime visions, along with stories from Japanese folklore. In a visually sumptuous journey through the masters imagination, tales of childlike wonder give way to apocalyptic apparitions: a young boy stumbles on a fox wedding in a forest; a soldier confronts the ghosts of the war dead; a power plant meltdown smothers a seaside landscape in radioactive fumes. Interspersed with reflections on the redemptive power of creation, including a richly textured tribute to Vincent van Gogh, the film is both a showcase for its makers artistry at its most unbridled and a deeply personal lament for a world at the mercy of human ignorance
