Sam Neill, Michael Caton and Miranda Richardson star in new film at Fisher Theatre

The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the new comedy/drama “Rams” showing Jan. 29-Feb. 4 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

“Rams” features a stellar ensemble cast, including Sam Neill, Michael Caton and Miranda Richardson.

Brothers Colin and Les have been fighting for decades. Both are award-winning sheep farmers but when disaster strikes and disease threatens their flocks, will they be able to work together to save their sheep, their legacy, and their community?

In remote Western Australia, two estranged brothers, Colin (Sam Neill) and Les (Michael Caton), are at war. Raising separate flocks of sheep descended from their family’s prized bloodline, the two men work side by side yet are worlds apart.

When Les’s prize ram is diagnosed with a rare and lethal illness, authorities order a purge of every sheep in the valley. While Colin attempts to stealthily outwit the powers that be, Les opts for angry defiance.

But can the warring brothers set aside their differences and have a chance to reunite their family, save their herd, and bring their community back together?

“Rams” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Jan. 29-Feb. 4. Showtimes will be 4 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 29, 30 and 31 and 7 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 1, 3 and 4.

Sedona Film Fest presents ‘The Silent Revolution’ encore Jan. 29-Feb. 4

Winner of Best International Film Audience Choice Award returns to Fisher Theatre

The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona encore of the multiple award-winning film “The Silent Revolution” showing Jan. 29-Feb. 4 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

“The Silent Revolution” was among the highest-rated films by the audience at the recent Sedona International Film Festival, where it earned the honor of Audience Choice Best International Film. It has also won numerous awards at several prestigious film festivals around the world.

“The Silent Revolution” is a gripping and true story set in 1956 in East Germany. A group of students saw their life changed forever by a harmless human act of solidarity during the early stage of the Cold War, where freedom of thinking and integrity could make anyone an enemy of the state — or an ordinary hero. This is a film about the extraordinary courage of young individuals in a time of political oppression.

The year is 1956. During a visit to the cinema in West Berlin, high school pupils Theo and Kurt see dramatic pictures of the Hungarian uprising in Budapest on the newsreel. Back at school in Stalinstadt, they spontaneously decide to hold a minute’s silence in solidarity with the victims of the uprising during a lesson.

The gesture causes much bigger ripples than expected: while their headmaster initially tries to put the whole thing down to the whim of youth, the schoolchildren become objects of the political machinations of the fledgling East Germany. The People’s Education Minister condemns the action as a clearly counterrevolutionary act and demands that the ringleader be named within a week. But the schoolchildren stick together, thus facing with a decision that will change their lives forever.

“The ripple effect of a seemingly quite innocent idea and the subsequent, disproportionate reaction to it is fascinating to watch.” — Hollywood Reporter

“This is a solid piece of filmmaking which is elevated by a clutch of strong performances from the young cast.” — Screen International

“The Silent Revolution” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Jan. 29-Feb. 4. Showtimes will be 7 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 29, 30 and 31 and 4 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 1, 3 and 4.

Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona. For more information, visit: www.SedonaFilmFestival.org.

Exhibition on Screen 'Cézanne: Portraits of a Life' encore Feb. 9

Sedona Film Festival hosts big-screen presentation of art series at Mary D. Fisher theatre

Sedona International Film Festival presents the Exhibition on Screen series with “Cézanne: Portraits of a Life”. The event will show in Sedona on Tuesday, Feb. 9 at 4 and 7 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

Exhibition on Screen is thrilled to present one of the most talked-about exhibitions of the year. Dedicated to the portrait work of Paul Cézanne, the exhibition opens in Paris before traveling to London and Washington.

One cannot appreciate 20th century art without understanding the significance and genius of Paul Cézanne. Featuring interviews with curators and experts from the National Portrait Gallery London, MoMA New York, National Gallery of Art Washington, and Musée d’Orsay Paris, and correspondence from the artist himself, the film takes audiences beyond the exhibition to the places Cézanne lived and worked and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps the least-known of all the impressionists — until now.

Over his life Cézanne painted almost 1000 paintings, 200 of which were portraits. The exhibition, billed by art critics as “once in a lifetime”, brings together — for the first time since Cézanne’s death — fifty of these portraits from private and public collections all around the world.

These portraits provide the backbone to the moving new cinematic film. As well as offering an unprecedented level of insight into the exhibition, the film features interviews with curators, art experts and his great-grandson Philippe Cézanne. The film also travels to Cézanne’s home and studio in Provence and by including correspondence from the artist, it successfully sheds new light on the life and work of this hugely influential artist.

The Exhibition on Screen Series is generously sponsored by Goldenstein Gallery.

“Cézanne: Portraits of a Life” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Tuesday, Feb. 9 at 4 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $12.50 for Film Festival members. Tickets are available in advance at the Sedona International Film Festival office or by calling 928-282-1177 or online at www.SedonaFilmFestival.org. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona.
