Love is in the Air

ALIVE MIND CINEMA SERIES: BEING IN THE WORLD

Alive Mind Cinema is a monthly series featuring films that explore the meaning of life and happiness. These critically acclaimed and transformative films present the power of art and spirituality to change how we see our world. Each screening is followed by a discussion led by local leaders in the spiritual and theological communities. Being in the World takes us on a journey around the world to meet philosophers influenced by the thought of Martin Heidegger, as well as experts in the fields of sports, music, craft and cooking, in a celebration of human beings and our ability to find meaning in life through the mastery of physical, intellectual and creative skills.

BIG MEN

On May 28, 7 p.m., join a Skype Q&A with director Rachel Boynton. The film’s central story follows a small group of American explorers at Dallas-based oil company Kosmos Energy. Between 2007 and 2011, with unprecedented, independent access, Big Men’s two-person crew filmed inside the oil company as Kosmos and its partners discovered and developed the first commercial oil field in Ghana’s history. Simultaneously, the crew filmed in the swamps of Nigeria’s Niger Delta, following the exploits of a militant gang to reveal another side of the economy of oil: people trying to profit in any way possible, because they’ve given up on waiting for the money to trickle down. So what happens when a group of hungry people discover a massive and exquisitely rare pot of gold in one of the poorest places on earth? At Boedecker. — Boedecker Theater

LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON

Ryota Nonomiya is a successful businessman driven by money. When he learns that his biological son was switched with another child after birth, he must make a life-changing decision and choose his true son or the boy he raised as his own. “A tender poem about the ebb and flow of paternal love.” — The Telegraph. At Boedecker. — Boedecker Theater

LOVE IS IN THE AIR (AMOUR & TURBULENSES)

In this delightful French romantic comedy, soon-to-be-married Julie and continent-hopping playboy Antoine find themselves seated next to each other on a first class flight to Paris — but it isn’t a welcome arrangement. He broke her heart three years prior, and they haven’t spoken since. Over the course of the flight, their verbal sparring catches the attention of the other passengers, who are amused by the live soap opera happening in front of them. Alternating between real time and flashbacks from their love affair, this big-budget French affair is a breezy, glossy and sexy alternative to the typical Hollywood romantic comedy. At Boedecker. —Boedecker Theater

ON THE OTHER HAND MOVIE SERIES: FRACKNATION

Panel discussion after screening includes: Jon Caldara, president of the Independence Institute; John Ashby, geological engineer; Neshama Abraham, Environmental Services and Marketing; and Wes Wilson, EPA whistleblower. This rebuttal to Gasland and exploration of hydraulic fracturing is bound to spark discussion. When journalist Phelim McAleer is put off by Gasland’s Josh Fox during a press conference, he uses Kickstarter to fund a documentary that casts doubt on environmentalist claims about the effects of fracking. At Boedecker. — Boedecker Theater

THEATER ON SCREEN: CAESAR AND CLEOPATRA

Christopher Plummer and Nikki James star in George Bernard Shaw’s celebrated comedy about a Roman political strategist and a teenage Egyptian queen. At Boedecker. —Boedecker Theater

TIM’S VERMEER

Tim Jenison, a Texas-based inventor, (Video Toaster, LightWave, TriCaster) attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: How did 17th century Dutch master Johannes Vermeer (“Girl with a Pearl Earring”) manage to paint so photo-realistically — 150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory is as extraordinary as what he discovers. Spanning a decade, Jenison’s adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces, on a pilgrimage to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney and eventually to Buckingham Palace, to see the Queen’s Vermeer.
