Shot outside of Pittsburgh at a fraction of the cost of a Hollywood feature by a band of filmmakers determined to make their mark, George A. Romero’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD is one of the great stories of independent cinema: a midnight hit turned box-office smash that became one of the most influential films of all time. A deceptively simple tale of a group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse who find themselves fending off a horde of flesh-eating ghouls newly arisen from their graves, Romero’s claustrophobic vision of a late-sixties America (literally) tearing itself apart rewrote the rules of the horror genre, combined gruesome gore with acute social commentary, and quietly broke ground by casting a black actor (Duane Jones) in the lead. After decades of poor-quality prints, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD can finally be seen for the immaculately crafted film that it is thanks to a new 4K restoration, scanned from the original camera negative and supervised by Romero himself. NR / 96 min.

Three Palestinian women living in an apartment in Tel Aviv try to find a balance between traditional and modern culture. NR / 102 min. In Hebrew & Arabic w/ subtitles.
"After watching Maysaloun Hamoud’s sparkling, taboo-breaking first feature IN BETWEEN (BAR BAHAR), audiences will have to seriously update their ideas about the lifestyle of Palestinian women in Israel. IN BETWEEN focuses not on politics but on daily life, yet its portrait of social change is most revealing." - The Hollywood Reporter
"What makes this spiky dramedy so compelling are the Palestinian-Israeli protagonists, whose split lives have rarely been depicted on screen. These strong, modern, sexually active women, living independently in the center of Tel Aviv, away from their families and the weight of tradition, struggle to be true to themselves when confronting the expectations of others." - Variety
