Sedona Film Fest presents ‘The Truth’ premiere July 3-9

Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche and Ethan Hawke star in film at Fisher Theatre

The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the acclaimed and award-winning new drama “The Truth” showing July 3-9 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

“The Truth” premiered to rave reviews as the closing night film at the recent Sedona International Film Festival and is making a return by popular demand.

Legends of French cinema Oscar-nominee Catherine Deneuve and Oscar-winner Juliette Binoche join masterful filmmaker Hirokazu Koreeda to paint a moving portrait of family dynamics in “The Truth”. The duo is joined by Academy Award nominee Ethan Hawke.

Fabienne (Catherine Deneuve) is an aging French movie star who, despite her momentary lapses in memory, remains a venerable force to be reckoned with. Upon the publication of her memoirs, her daughter Lumir (Juliette Binoche) returns to Paris from New York with her husband (Ethan Hawke) and their young daughter to commemorate its release.

A sharp and funny battle of wits ensues between the mother-daughter duo, as Lumir takes issue with Fabienne's rose-colored version of the past. Reflected cleverly by Fabienne's latest role in a sci-fi drama, their strained relationship takes a poignant journey toward possible reconciliation.

Charming, bold, and imbued with endless emotional insight, “The Truth” offers a relatable look at human relationships, featuring exquisite performances from its all-star cast.

“Catherine Deneuve gives a magnificent performance: grand, subtle, lacerating and fearless.” — Owen Gleiberman, Variety

“A warm and moving family portrait with the kind of sensitivity only a master storyteller can bring to the table.” — David Ehrlich, IndieWire

“A charming love letter to Deneuve and an affectionate ode to French cinema itself.” — David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

Sedona Film Fest presents ‘John Lewis: Good Trouble’ premiere July 3-9

Legendary civil rights activist featured in award-winning doc at Mary D. Fisher Theatre



The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the award-winning new documentary “John Lewis: Good Trouble” showing July 3-9 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

“John Lewis: Good Trouble”, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Dawn Porter, chronicles the life and career of the legendary civil rights activist and Democratic Representative from Georgia.

Using interviews and rare archival footage, “John Lewis: Good Trouble” chronicles John Robert Lewis’ 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform and immigration. Using present-day interviews with Lewis — now 80 years old — Porter explores his childhood experiences, his inspiring family and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957.

In addition to her interviews with Lewis and his family, Porter’s primarily cinéma verité film also includes interviews with political leaders, Congressional colleagues, and other people who figure prominently in his life.

“The biggest reason I got involved in this project is because of John Lewis himself,” director Dawn Porter says. “He’s such a towering figure, and I knew that by partnering with CNN Films, I’d be able to explore not only his past, but his present as well, that we would also have access to the archival resources at CNN Worldwide.  John Lewis has consistently delivered a message of doing your best, being honorable, and respecting others for the past 65+ years. I think it’s really needed at this particular moment in history.”

“John Lewis: Good Trouble” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre July 3-9. Showtimes will be 7 p.m. on Friday, Sunday and Thursday, July 3, 5 and 9; and 4 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, July 6, 7 and 8.

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.
