In an England of the future, Alex (Malcolm McDowell) and his "Droogs" spend their nights getting high at the Korova Milkbar before embarking on "a little of the old ultraviolence," while jauntily warbling "Singin' in the Rain." After he's jailed for bludgeoning the Cat Lady to death, Alex submits to behavior modification technique to earn his freedom; he's conditioned to abhor violence. Returned to the world defenseless, Alex becomes the victim of his prior victims.

Entertainment and Social Change - Panel Discussion with Robert Walker
Entertainment and Social Change
presented by Population Media Center


Films and television programs entertain, but can they educate and promote positive social change?  Robert Walker, the president of the Population Institute and a senior adviser to the Population Media Center (PMC), talks about the success and impact of East Los High, an award-winning serial drama that was nominated this year for three Emmy Awards. Produced by PMC in association with Wise Entertainment, East Los High aired as a Hulu original series and rose to be one of the top five shows on hulu.com during its first season. Now in its third season on Hulu, it was Hollywood’s first and only series with an all Latino cast.  Walker explains how the program and its supporting transmedia strategy are addressing some of the challenges facing urban Latino youth, including teenage pregnancy and unsafe sex. Walker also talks about the history of entertainment media as a vehicle for promoting positive social change.

ASTRAEA | USA | Drama |  98 minutes| Texas Premiere
Directed by  Kristjan Thor

When disease nearly wipes out the human race, a telepathic teenage girl named Astraea believes her visions confirm that survivors are living in Northern Canada. She leads her doubting brother on a five-thousand mile journey, through a silent America, and into the snowbound wilderness, hoping to rebuild life as she knew it. As they head North, her clairvoyance intensifies and they encounter another couple homesteading on a remote lake in Maine. The grief and complexity - as well as the excitement and comfort - of communal living pits itself against Astraea's desire to keep moving and find her family. Astraea is a post-apocalyptic film that finally shows not what humanity is running from, but what we're running toward.

CHILDREN OF GIANT
CHILDREN OF GIANT | USA | Documentary | 86 minutes  
Directed by Hector Galan

Children of GIANT is a documentary film that unearths deeply wrought emotions in the small West Texas town of Marfa, before, during and after the month-long production of George Stevens' 1956 feature film, Giant. Based on the controversial Edna Ferber novel of the same name, the film, Giant did not shy from strong social-issue themes experienced throughout post-WWII America. George Stevens, its producer and director, purposely gravitated to the drought-ridden community of Marfa for most all of the exterior scenes.

ANOMALISA
ANOMALISA | USA | Animation/Drama |  110 minutes
Directed by Duke Johnson & Charlie Kaufman

Michael Stone, husband, father and respected author of "How May I Help You Help Them?," is man crippled by the mundanity of his life. On a business trip to Cincinnati, where he's scheduled to speak at a convention of customer service professionals, he checks into the Fregoli Hotel. There, he is amazed to discover a possible escape from his desperation in the form of an unassuming Akron baked goods sales rep, Lisa, who may or may not be the love of his life. A beautifully tender and absurdly humorous dreamscape, from the brilliant minds of Charlie Kaufman (SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK ) and Duke Johnson ("Community" episode, Abed's Uncontrollable Christmas), this stop-motion animation wonder features the vocal cast of Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tom Noonan and David Thewlis and a stirring strings-based score by Carter Burwell.  The darkly comedic and surreal stop-motion journey of a man's long night of the soul, ANOMALISA confirms Charlie Kaufman's place amongst the most important of American filmmakers, and announces Duke Johnson as a major creative force.
