Life of Crime
Sept. 19-23


Jennifer Aniston stars as a kidnapped wife, whose wealthy husband (Tim Robbins) doesn’t want to pay her ransom in the dark caper comedy “Life of Crime”, adapted from Elmore Leonard’s book The Switch.
 
When a pair of low-level criminals kidnap the wife of a corrupt real-estate developer, they get both more and less than they bargained for in “Life of Crime”.
 
Mickey Dawson (Jennifer Aniston), the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), is kidnapped by two common criminals (Yasiin Bey and John Hawkes), who intend to hold her for a $1 million ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings. But Frank, who is holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress, decides he’d rather not get his wife back, setting off a sequence of double-crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Elmore Leonard.

 
 
“Life of Crime” is packed with the outrageously eccentric characters, black comedy and unexpected twists that earned Leonard a reputation as one of America’s sharpest and funniest crime writers. The all-star cast also features John Hawkes, Yasiin Bey, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher and Will Forte.
 
“Life of Crime” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Sept. 19-23. Showtimes will be 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 19-20; and 7 p.m. on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 21-23.  

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.

The One I Love
Sept. 19-23


Ted Danson, Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss star in the dramatic comedy “The One I Love”. The highly anticipated debut feature from acclaimed author Charlie McDowell is an original tale that continues to showcase McDowell's keen observations of human relationships with a distinct and comedic voice.  
 
On the brink of separation, Ethan (Duplass) and Sophie (Moss) escape to a beautiful vacation house retreat for a weekend getaway in an attempt to save their marriage, at the recommendation of their therapist (Danson).  The retreat is not only gorgeous, but also secluded — Ethan and Sophie are the only people staying there.

 
 
Soon after Sophie and Ethan arrive, however, they realize that there’s something strange about the retreat’s guest house. With the rules of the scenario seemingly established, Ethan and Sophie must go about navigating this strange situation they find themselves in. What begins as a romantic and fun retreat soon becomes surreal, when an unexpected discovery forces the two to examine themselves, their relationship, and their future.
 
“The One I Love” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Sept. 19-23. Showtimes will be 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 19-20; and 4 p.m. on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 21-23.

The Two Gentlemen of Verona
from the Royal Shakespeare Company
Sunday, Sept. 21


The Royal Shakespeare Company’s extraordinary production of “The Two Gentlemen of Verona” makes its Sedona big-screen debut on Sunday, Sept. 21. The Sedona International Film Festival hosts the high-definition premiere of William Shakespeare’s renowned play from its home in Stratford-Upon-Avon. There will be one show at 1 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
 
Simon Godwin makes his Royal Shakespeare Company debut to direct the Bard’s exuberant romantic comedy. He is Associate Director of the Royal Court and his production of “Strange Interlude” recently played to critical acclaim at the National Theatre. This is the first time in 45 years “The Two Gentlemen of Verona” has been performed in full production on the Royal Shakespeare Theatre stage.

 
Valentine and Proteus are best friends, until they fall in love with the same girl. Having travelled to Milan in search of adventure, they both fall for the Duke’s daughter Silvia. But Proteus is already sworn to his sweetheart, Julia, at home in Verona, and the Duke thinks Valentine is not good enough for his Silvia. With friendship forgotten, the rivals’ affections quickly get out of hand as the four young lovers find themselves on a wild chase through the woods, confused by mistaken identity and threatened by fierce outlaws before they find a path to reconciliation.
 
“The Two Gentlemen of Verona” features Mark Arends as Proteus and Michael Marcus as Valentine. Mark recently appeared in Headlong’s 1984, and Michael’s credits include playing Henry Tudor in the BBC series The White Queen. Launce is played by Roger Morlidge, who has just finished appearing in the West End transfer of The Full Monty.

   
 
Critics are raving about this production of “The Two Gentlemen of Verona”:
 
'There's a lovely summery feel to Simon Godwin's modern-dress production of this early Shakespeare comedy; it's a stylish and confident RSC debut.' Evening Standard

'Director Simon Godwin eagerly explores the light and dark sides of romance in a striking RSC debut.' — Guardian

'Simon Godwin's lively, modern-dress staging…remarkably engaging, amusing and disquieting.' Times
 
'Winning comic fizz to complement its dark side.' — Daily Telegraph
 
“The Two Gentlemen of Verona” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Sunday, Sept. 21 at 1:00 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. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W.

Documented
Sept. 24-25


The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present its premiere series with the debut of the critically-acclaimed, award-winning and thought-provoking film “Documented”. There will be three shows: Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 4 and 7 p.m. and Thursday, Sept. 25 at 4 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
 
In 2011, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas outed himself as an undocumented immigrant in the New York Times Magazine. “Documented” chronicles his journey to America from the Philippines as a child; his public struggle as an immigration reform advocate; and his journey inward as he reconnects with his mother, whom he hasn't seen in 20 years. A broken immigration system leads to broken families and broken lives. 
 
Jose Antonio Vargas began his immigrant journey at age 12, when he was sent to the United States from the Philippines by his mother to live with his grandparents in Mountain View, California. After attending San Francisco State University, Vargas pursued a print journalism career – landing jobs at newspapers in San Francisco, Philadelphia, New York City, and Washington D.C. for the Washington Post – all the while, managing to keep his true citizenship status a secret.

 
 
In 2008, Vargas was awarded a Pulitzer as part of the team of Washington Post journalists who reported on the 2007 shooting massacre at Virginia Tech University. Vargas began working on “Documented” shortly before “outing” himself as undocumented in a ground-breaking New York Times Magazine essay, “My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant.” He then traveled around America, telling his story in solidarity with the more than 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the country.
 
“Against the advice of lawyers, I wrote, in detail, what I had to do to live and survive in America: hide in plain sight as I worked as a journalist for more than a decade; lie on government forms to get jobs while paying taxes and contributing to Social Security (undocumented workers provide billions in both); grow estranged from my mother in the Philippines who put me on a plane to the United States in 1993. In outing myself, I risked everything and prepared myself for anything,” said Vargas.
 
“What I was not prepared for, however, was silence, especially from politicians in Washington, where immigration has become the third rail of American politics, often framed in partisan, polarizing terms, mostly subjected to elections, and tied to the future of political parties.”
 
“To us who are directly affected by the political standstill, immigration is urgent and personal. Immigration is about our families.”
 
“Documented” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 4 and 7 p.m. and Thursday, Sept. 25 at 4 p.m. 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.

An Evening with Armen Ra
Sept. 25-27


Glamorously eccentric and enigmatic Theremin master Armen Ra returns to Sedona for “An Evening with Armen Ra” — special film screenings and live concerts — on the Goldenstein Stage at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.  There will be three performances Sept. 25-27, presented by the Sedona International Film Festival, in partnership with Sedona/Verde Valley Pride.
 
Armen Ra — Theremin virtuoso and star of the documentary “When My Sorrow Died: The Legend of Armen Ra and the Theremin” — returns to Sedona after a sold-out, standing-room only screening and concert at the recent Illuminate Film Festival. Now is your chance to experience the magic that is Armen, his life and his music.
 
Armen Ra is a spellbinding character off stage and when he steps up to play his Theremin. Rivaling Clara Rockmore with style & attitude and as original and uncompromising as Klaus Nomi, “When My Sorrow Died” takes an intimate look at the life of the Iranian-born Armenian, turned concert performer, by way of the New York club scene. It’s a feast for the eyes, visually lush with a rich palette of colors, as well as the ears, with footage from a number of Ra’s concert performances.

 
Armen Ra recounts his dynamic journey in this life-spanning documentary that mixes rare concert performances, candid interviews, and archive material with the magical power of music that can alchemize ancient sorrow into timeless beauty.
 
Born in Tehran to a father who worked for Iran Air, a mother who was a concert pianist (and with an aunt who was an opera singer), Armen was lucky enough to travel the world on frequent vacations when he was a child. A precocious little boy, he delighted in sewing the costumes for his puppet shows and displayed a florid imagination which, as he grew, was applied to crafting his exotic persona.
 
When political unrest in Iran caused his family to relocate to America, Armen was frequently bullied at school. He quickly decided that he had nothing in common with his classmates and soon found his way to New York City, where he began a new chapter of his life.
 
Take the only instrument you play but never touch and put it in the hands of a human who touches every soul they meet. Let Armen Ra transport you to another time and place with his magic and beauty.
 
There will be three presentations of “An Evening with Armen Ra” (featuring screenings of “When My Sorrow Died” and live concert performances) on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, Sept. 25-27, at 7 p.m. each night. Tickets are $15 general admission and $13 for Film Festival members and students. All tickets include a meet-and-greet with Armen Ra in the lobby after the show.
 
The Thursday evening performance will kick off the Sedona/Verde Valley Pride weekend celebration with a special reception in the theatre courtyard before the show. The public is invited to all three performances.

My Old Lady
Sept. 26-30


He’s in the will, and she’s in the way in “My Old Lady”. Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) is a down-on-his-luck New Yorker who inherits a Parisian apartment from his estranged father. But when he arrives in France to sell the vast domicile, he's shocked to discover a live-in tenant who is not prepared to budge. His apartment is a viager — an ancient French real estate system with complex rules pertaining to its resale — and the feisty Englishwoman Mathilde Girard (Maggie Smith), who has lived in the apartment with her daughter Chloé (Kristin Scott Thomas) for many years, can by contract collect monthly payments from Mathias until her death.
 
With no place to go, Mathias strikes a tentative lodging arrangement with Mathilde, instantly clashing with suspicious, lovelorn Chloé over his private dealings with a rapacious property developer, who wants to purchase the apartment. An uneasy détente settles in as the quarreling Mathias and Chloé come to discover a common ground of childhood pain and neglect. As they draw increasingly closer, Mathilde unveils a complex labyrinth of secrets that unites the trio in unexpected ways.

 
 
With its unique blend of comedy, drama and ultimately romance, “My Old Lady” marks the directorial debut of internationally celebrated playwright Israel Horovitz, adapting his own hit play.
 
Filmed on location in a ravishing Paris of quiet back streets and familiar locales, “My Old Lady” is a touching romantic drama about inheritance and past secrets coming home to roost, featuring an all-star cast working together at the height of their powers.
 
“My Old Lady” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Sept. 26-30. Showtimes will be 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 26-27; 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 28; and 7 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 29-30.

"The Glass Cage" with Nicholas Carr and Tim Wu
Life from New York's 92nd St. Y
Tuesday, Sept. 30


New York’s famous 92nd Street Y returns to Sedona on Tuesday, Sept. 30 when the Sedona International Film Festival hosts “The Glass Cage” featuring bestselling author Nicholas Carr in a conversation with Tim Wu. The event will take place at 5:15 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre, live as it is happening in New York. 
 
What kind of world are we building for ourselves? That’s the question bestselling author Nicholas Carr tackles in his urgent new book and the evening’s conversation: The Glass Cage, about the human consequences of automation.
 
Digging behind the headlines about factory robots and self-driving cars, wearable computers and digitized medicine, Carr explores the hidden costs of granting software dominion over our work and our leisure. Even as they bring ease to our lives, computer programs are stealing something essential from us. Drawing on psychological and neurological studies that underscore how tightly people’s happiness and satisfaction are tied to performing meaningful work in the real world, Carr reveals something we already suspect: shifting our attention to computer screens can leave us disengaged and discontented.

From nineteenth-century textile mills to the cockpits of modern jets, from the frozen hunting grounds of Inuit tribes to the sterile landscapes of GPS maps, Carr explores the impact of automation from a deeply human perspective, examining the personal as well as the economic consequences of our growing dependence on computers.

Join Carr as he discusses this increasingly crucial topic with public advocate and Columbia Law School professor Tim Wu, who developed the highly-influential Net Neutrality theory.

 
Nicholas Carr writes about technology and culture. His most recent book, The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains, is a 2011 Pulitzer Prize finalist and a New York Times bestseller. He is also the author of two other influential books, The Big Switch: Rewiring the World, from Edison to Google (2008) and Does IT Matter? (2004). His books have been translated into more than twenty-five languages.

 
Tim Wu is an author, policy advocate, and professor at Columbia Law School.  He is also a fellow at the New America Foundation, and a contributing editor at The New Republic.  Wu's best known work is the development of Net Neutrality theory, but he wires also about private power, free speech, copyright and antitrust.

Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members. Tickets are available in advance at the festival office. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona. Call 928-282-1177 for tickets and information or click on the link below.

Alan Alda, Jane Pauley, Fred Newman and Erik Kolbell
Life from New York's 92nd St. Y
Wednesday, Oct. 1


Alan Alda, Jane Pauley and Fred Newman are featured guests in a special Live from New York’s 92nd Street Y simulcast on Wednesday, Oct. 1. The Sedona International Film Festival will broadcast the event at its Mary D. Fisher Theatre at 5:15 p.m., live as it is happening in New York. 
 
What would you save if your house was on fire and it contained not only everything you own, but everything you are?
 
As we’ll learn from Alan Alda, Jane Pauley and Fred Newman, the question provokes unique responses, and forces us to delve deeply into our personal lives, work and faith. Psychotherapist and pastor Erik Kolbell, the author of the book of the same title, asks the questions and helps us all to consider what it is that we value most in life.

 
Alan Alda has earned international recognition as an actor, writer and director. He played Hawkeye Pierce on the classic television series M*A*S*H, and wrote and directed many of the episodes. In all, he has received 7 Emmys and has been nominated for an Emmy 33 times. He has also received three Tony nominations. Alda has the distinction of being nominated for an Oscar, a Tony, and an EMMY — and publishing a bestselling book — all in the same year (2005). His Emmy nomination was for his role on The West Wing. His Tony nomination that year was for his role in the Broadway revival of David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross. In addition to receiving an Academy Award nomination for his appearance in Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator that year, he was also nominated for a British Academy Award.

 
Jane Pauley was born on October 31, 1950, in Indianapolis, Indiana. In 1976, she joined NBC’s Today show as a correspondent, and later co-anchored with Tom Brokaw and his replacement, Bryant Gumbel. After resigning from her position on Today in 1989, Pauley began a successful NBC weekly magazine series, Real Life with Jane Pauley, which was later renamed Dateline.

 
Fred Newman grew up at the foot of storytellers in small town Georgia. He graduated Harvard Business School and worked with Newsweek magazine, and was first heard on A Prairie Home Companion as a guest in 1980 as author of his first version of Mouthsounds. He went on to work as an actor, a writer, and a fairly inept puppeteer with Jim Henson, hosting many shows for Nickelodeon and Disney (including the New Mickey Mouse Club).

 
Erik Kolbell is a writer, psychotherapist, and ordained minister. A Yale Divinity School graduate, Kolbell was the first Minister of Social Justice at Riverside Church in New York City where he worked on fair housing, racial equality, nuclear disarmament, prison reform and other issues. His work took him to Nicaragua as an official US observer for the first democratic elections, to Cuba with Pastors for Peace delivering medical supplies, and to South Africa on a fact finding mission during the apartheid years.
 
Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members. Tickets are available in advance at the festival office. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona. Call 928-282-1177 for tickets and information or click on the link below.
