After her daughter's death, Rita returns to the African country where she lived her childhood to investigate a mystery of the past: the truth about the death of Yvone Kane, a former guerrilla and political activist. In this country, where progress is built on the ruins of a violent past, Rita finds her old mother, Sara, a hard and lonely woman who has lived there for many years. And while Sara lives the last days of her life seeking a meaning for her past deeds as a revolutionary, Rita finds herself in a territory marked by the scars of history and haunted by ghosts of war and evil, searching for Yvone's secret. But all paths seem to lead to the revelation of the impossibility of redemption and oblivion.

1913 : seeds of conflict
Ben Loeterman Productions ; written, produced and directed by Ben Loeterman
[Arlington, Virginia] : PBS, [2015]
This documentary examines a critical yet overlooked moment of transformation in Palestine, long before the Balfour Declaration and British Mandate period usually considered the matchstick for today's ongoing struggles. It was a time when identities were fluid and few Arabs or Jews living there could imagine the conflict that would engulf their region for the next century. 1913: Seeds of Conflict explores the crumbling of Ottoman rule and the rise of Jewish and Palestinian nationalism through the words of those who helped shape history: Albert Antebi, a Sephardic Jew known as the Jewish "pasha"; Ruhi al-Khalidi, the scion of a Palestine family and Jerusalem's elected representative to the Ottoman Parliament; Khalil Sakakini, a Christian schoolmaster and voice for Palestinian cultural autonomy; and Arthur Ruppin, a German Zionist who opens the Palestine Office to strategize the shape of a Jewish homeland to come.

A lady takes a chance
produced by Frank Ross ; screenplay by Robert Ardrey ; directed by William A. Seiter
New York, NY : Kino Lorber Inc., [2018]
Finding men had never been a problem for city girl Molly Truesdale; finding the right man is another matter. And women have never been a problem for cowboy bachelor Duke Hudkins, until they want to marry him. If it's true that opposites attract, these two are obviously made for each other. He assumes she's just another pretty gal who'll fall into his arms, but she's a lady who won't be roped easily by a brawling, rough-and-ready cowboy.

Toivon tuolla puolen
Sputnik sekä Bufo esittävät ; käsikirjoitus, ohjaus, tuotanto, Aki Kaurismäki
[New York, New York] : The Criterion Collection, [2018]
"This wry, melancholic comedy from Aki Kaurismäki, a response to the ongoing global refugee crisis, follows two people searching for a place to call home. Khaled (Sherwan Haji), a displaced Syrian, lands in Helsinki as a stowaway; meanwhile, middle-aged Finnish salesman Wikström (Sakari Kuosmanen) leaves his wife and his job and buys a conspicuously unprofitable restaurant. Khaled is denied asylum but decides not to return to Aleppo-- and the paths of the two men cross fortuitously. As deadpan as the best of the director's work, and with a deep well of empathy for its down-but-not-out characters (many of them played by members of Kaurismäki's loyal stock company), The Other Side of Hope is a bittersweet celebration of pockets of human kindness in an unwelcoming world"--Container.

お早よう / 松竹映画 ; 脚本, 野田高梧, 小津安二郎 ; 製作, 山内静夫 ; 監督, 小津安二郎
[New York, N.Y.] : The Criterion Collection, [2017]
[disc 1]. [Feature film and special features] -- [disc 2]. I was born, but ... ; A straightforward boy,

"A lighthearted take on director Yasujiro Ozu's perennial theme of the challenges of intergenerational relationships, Good Morning tells the story of two young boys who stop speaking in protest after their parents refuse to buy a television set. Ozu weaves a wealth of subtle gags through a family portrait as rich as those of his dramatic films, mocking the foibles of the adult world through the eyes of his child protagonists. Shot in stunning Technicolor and set in a suburb of Tokyo where housewives gossip about the neighbors' new washing machine and unemployed husbands look for work as door-to-door salesmen, this charming comedy refashions Ozu's own silent classic I Was Born, But ... to gently satirize consumerism in postwar Japan"--Container.

This increasingly bizarre scenario is observed by a lonely woman in the building across the street, a German scientist who is following the aliens, and an equally androgynous, drug-addicted male model.
