Apollo 11
Crafted from a newly discovered trove of 65mm footage, and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, “Apollo 11” takes us straight to the heart of NASA’s most celebrated mission — the one that first put men on the moon, and forever made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into household names. (93 minutes).

Dogman
In a seaside village on the outskirts of an Italian city, where the only law seems to be survival of the fittest, Marcello is a slight, mild-mannered man who divides his days between working at his modest dog grooming salon, caring for his daughter Alida, and being coerced into the petty criminal schemes of the local bully Simoncino, an ex-boxer who terrorizes the neighborhood. (103 minutes).

Too Late to Die Young— original title Tarde Para Morir Joven
During 1990 in Chile, a small group of families lives in an isolated community right below the Andes, building a new world away from the urban excesses.

(110 minutes).
