When Lilas moves into a couple's tiny Chinatown apartment, the already fragile balance between Leeward and Mary is upset even further.  As she navigates her way through the intimate lives of others, through the treacheries of the New York art world, and through the streets of New York, Swim Little Fish Swim tracks her journey from adolescence to adulthood with sensitivity and quirky charm.  In French and English, subtitled. 2013; 95 min.

Interpolated with these incredible sequences are biographical sections detailing Muybridge's personal and professional struggles, narrated by Dean Stockwell.

Snows of the Nile - Nathan Dappen and Neil Losin (Highland Park, New Jersey)
Uganda's Rwenzori Mountains rise 5000 meters from the heart of Africa. At their summits are some of Earth's only equatorial glaciers. But these so-termed Mountains of the Moon, which caused a sensation when they were first scaled in 1906, are changing rapidly. Snows of the Nile follows two climatologists on an ambitious expedition to retrace the steps of that legendary 1906 expedition, and to re-capture the famous glacier photographs taken at that time, in order to create a visual document of the truly stunning impact of a century of climate change. 2013, 20 min. With an introduction and Q+A session by Director Nathan Dappen!

A Life Outside  - Catherine Brabec (New York, New York)

Fifty years ago, six New Jersey surfers started riding the waves together and they are still going out to this day. Pioneering the surf break at the Casino Pier in Seaside Heights, New Jersey in the 1960's, and surfing freezing waters before wetsuits even existed, they found themselves caught by the grip of a deep passion, which cemented their bonds with one another even more intensely. Surfing the Pier was a privilege they earned, a territory they protected, even as their friendships were complicated by fierce competition.  Because the Pier was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, this is a homage to what was lost, as well as the triumphant tale of six New Jersey surfers, deeply connected to nature, water, and weather, and the lessons to be learned from the ocean. 2013; 83 min. With an introduction and Q+A session by Director Catherine Brabec!

Films By Stan Brakhage
Stan Brakhage is one of the most important figures in 20th-century American experimental film. Over the course of five decades, he explored a variety of formats, approaches, and techniques that included hand-held camerawork; painting directly onto celluloid; fast cutting; in-camera editing; scratching on film;  and the use of multiple exposures.  Inspired by mythology, music, poetry and visual phenomena, Brakhage sought to reveal the universal in the particular, exploring themes of birth, mortality, sexuality, and innocence. His films are intensely expressive and lyrical.  The films to be screened include new film prints of Mothlight, Fire of Waters, Creation, Prelude: Dog Star Man and others. 1959-1979; 70 min. With commentary by Festival Director Albert G. Nigrin.

Portrait of Jason - Shirley Clarke
On the night of December 2, 1966, acclaimed independent film-maker Shirley Clarke and a small crew convened at the Hotel Chelsea to make a ground-breaking documentary. There, for twelve straight hours, they filmed the one-and-only Jason Holliday as he sang tunes, donned costumes and reminisced about his life as a gay hustler and cabaret performer. The result is a mesmerizing portrait of Jason—a remarkably charming man, who spins tales that are by turns hilarious and heartbreaking--as well as a deeply illuminating documentary about gay life in New York City.   Ingmar Bergman called Portrait of Jason “the most extraordinary film I’ve seen in my life.” When it first screened in a sneak preview, the audience included Tennessee Williams, Robert Frank, Andy Warhol, Arthur Miller, Elia Kazan, Ruby Dee, Ossie Davis, and many others. But for decades, Clarke’s powerful and prophetic Portrait of Jason was thought to be lost.  Now, after a two-year search, the film has been masterfully restored.  Almost fifty years after it was filmed, Portrait of Jason is also a potent reminder of what the world was like for black gay men in the heat of the Civil Rights movement and on the cusp of the Stonewall Uprising. 1967; 105 min. Free for all Rutgers University Students with valid ID! Co-sponsored by the Rutgers University School of Arts and Sciences, the Rutgers University American Studies Department, the Rutgers University Office of the Dean of Students, the Rutgers University Center for Social Justice Education and LGBT Communities and the Rutgers University Cinema Studies Program!

In the Land of the Head Hunters - Edward S. Curtis

In 1911, famed photographer Edward S. Curtis travelled to Vancouver Island, British Columbia, to visit the Kwakwaka'wakw people. By the next year, Curtis decided that the best way to record the traditional way of life and ceremonies of the Kwakwaka'wakw would be to make a feature motion picture on a grand scale.  After three years of preparation, which included the weaving of costumes, the building of war canoes, housefronts, poles, and the carving of masks, filming began with the assistance of George Hunt, a Kwakwaka'wakw who had served as an interpreter for the famed anthropologist Franz Boas. Selected for the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, this early Native American drama, merged with a documentary style, is a story of love and revenge within a tribe native to British Columbia.  When Motana, the son of a great leader, goes on a vigil journey, he begins to fast with the hope of gaining the supernatural strength worthy of a chief as powerful as his father.   In the Land of the Head Hunters is a landmark film that preserves on celluloid the magnificence of a now-lost world. 1911/2014; 47 min.

An excerpt from a man’s life and why he goes to great lengths to do a good deed for another. Shot in New Brunswick. 2013; 5 min. With an introduction by Director Jessica Dotson!
Brainwashing – A.G. Nigrin
Brainwashing, shot almost exclusively inside a car wash, is a hypnotic film which functions as a metaphor for the drowning of the soul. The soundtrack consists of a condensed washing machine cycle: start, wash, rinse, dry, off. Featuring the car wash that used to be on Commercial Avenue in New Brunswick. 1987; 6 min. With an introduction by Director A.G. Nigrin!
Mental Radio – A.G. Nigrin
Believing she had telepathic powers, Mary Craig and her husband, the writer Upton Sinclair, set out to test these powers in the 1920s. Sinclair would draw pictures and then transmit them mentally to Craig; she would then draw the image she received in an adjacent, closed room. Their experiments were 75% successful. The telepathic interaction between Craig and Sinclair served as one of the starting points for Mental Radio which depicts psychic and telepathic interactions between soul mates, both animal and human. This film is also a visual interpretation of Graves Disease, a thyroid condition that alters the body’s inner rhythms. The pacing between staccato versus still shots is meant to simulate the physiological sensations associated with Graves Disease which include heart palpitations and unstable feelings counterpoised with periods of tranquility. Mental Radio is also a documentation of the filmmaker’s former garden in New Brunswick garden following a chronological development -- from early Spring to mid-summer. The film also showcases many  New Brunswick’s locales that have been torn down or re-developed, including Greasy Tony’s and the old Factory on Somerset Street. 1996; 11 min.
