The final entry in the Magnolia Pictures: A Few Of Our Favorite Docs series is an inspiring and entertaining look at the extraordinary rise of one of the most colorful and controversial religious movements in American history. When media-savvy members of the Satanic Temple organize a series of public actions designed to advocate for religious freedom and challenge corrupt authority, they prove that with little more than a clever idea, a mischievous sense of humor, and a few rebellious friends, you can speak truth to power in some truly profound ways. R / 95 min. A portion of ticket sales will go to GiveDirectly’s COVID Relief Fund.
Join us on Wednesday, 6/10 at 7:00pm CT for a live Q&A with director Penny Lane in conversation with Lucien Greaves, head of The Satanic Temple; questions can be submitted in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by tweet using the hashtag #magnoliadocseries

One of Hong Sangsoo’s most delightful comic mysteries is now available in the U.S. When painter Youngsoo (Kim Joohyuk) learns that his girlfriend, Minjung (Lee Yooyoung), was recently seen having drinks with another man, he can’t help but question her about it. It doesn’t go well and they part on bad terms. The next day, Youngsoo tries to find her, but can’t. As he wanders and frets, Minjung has a series of encounters with other men. But to them it seems she’s not herself.
Featuring a supporting cast of Hong regulars including Kwon Haehyo, Yu Junsang and Kim Euisung, YOURSELF AND YOURS is a pleasing puzzle full of mistaken identity, excessive drinking and lots of he-said, she-said. As the rumors pile up, Hong asks: In a relationship, how important is it to know everything? NR / 86 min. In Korean w/ subtitles.

Kwon returns to Seoul from a restorative stay in the mountains. She is given a packet of letters left by Mori, who has come back from Japan to propose to her. As she walks down a flight of stairs, Kwon drops and scatters the letters, all of which are undated. When she reads them, she has to make sense of the chronology… and so must we. Shot in the narrow alleys, petite cafes and beautiful hanok inns of Seoul’s historic Jong-ro district, HILL OF FREEDOM is a masterful, alternately funny and haunting, tale of love and longing from the great Hong Sangsoo. NR / 67 min.
"A masterwork. Achieves a complexity akin to the grand historical meditations of Alain Resnais. Ingeniously constructed. I've watched it three times forwards and one time backwards and I feel as if I'm just beginning to get the hang of it." - Richard Brody, The New Yorker
"The prolific South Korean writer-director's funniest work, a wry, mostly English-language comedy." - Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, The A.V. Club

Master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished, Remember This House. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr., Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challenges the very definition of what America stands for. PG-13 / 95 min.

Kino Lorber presents new restorations of three "Way Ahead of Their Times" classic films, available as a package.
NR / 93 min. 1924. German intertitles w/ English subtitles.
Danish film master Carl Theodor Dreyer's MICHAEL is a mature and visually elegant period romance decades ahead of its time, one of the earliest and most compassionate overtly gay-themed films in movie history.
MÄDCHEN IN UNIFORM
NR / 87 min. 1931. German w/ subtitles.
This artfully composed milestone of lesbian cinema - and an important anti-fascist film - was the first of just three films directed by Leontine Sagan.
VICTOR AND VICTORIA
NR / 84 min. 1933. German w/ subtitles.
Produced in the final days of the Weimar Republic, VICTOR AND VICTORIA received limited exposure in the US, and is best known by the 1982 remake and the 1995 Broadway production. Viewers will be delighted that the original is every bit as charming and outrageous, reminiscent of Ernst Lubitsch and Billy Wilder.
An artful and intimate meditation on the life and works of the legendary storyteller and Nobel prize-winner. From her childhood in the steel town of Lorain, Ohio, to '70s-era book tours with Muhammad Ali, from the front lines with Angela Davis to her own riverfront writing room — Toni Morrison leads an assembly of her peers, critics and colleagues on an exploration of race, America, history and the human condition as seen through the prism of her own literature. Woven together with a rich collection of art, history, literature and personality, the film includes discussions about her many critically acclaimed works, including novels “The Bluest Eye,” “Sula” and “Song of Solomon,” her role as an editor of iconic African-American literature and her time teaching at Princeton University. Featuring interviews with Hilton Als, Angela Davis, Fran Lebowitz, Walter Mosley, Sonia Sanchez and Oprah Winfrey, who turned Morrison’s novel “Beloved” into a feature film. PG-13 / 120 min.
Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. As the National Guard descends on Ferguson with military grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance. R / 103 min.
