What does it take to build a world-class French restaurant? What if the staff is almost entirely men and women just out of prison? What if they have barely two months to learn their trade? This documentary follows the hectic launch of Edwins restaurant in Cleveland, Ohio, where trainees have something to prove as they struggle to start their new lives. Director Thomas Lennon, who joins the Rutgers Filmmaking Center as the new head of the Rutgers Film Bureau, will appear for a post-screening Q&A.
10 a.m. Friday, September 21, 2018
A woman (Tilda Swinton) is cornered into covering up an accidental death when her eldest son's lover washes up on the beachfront in front of their house. When she does the only thing an unflinchingly devoted mother could—hiding the body to protect her son—a riveting cat-and-mouse game soon turns into a haunting love story with self-sacrifice at its center. Directors Scott McGehee and David Siegel will appear for a post-screening Q&A.
This event is underwritten by the Blanche & Irving Laurie Foundation.

In 1988, the celebrated Catalan pianist Alicia de Larrocha performed a recital at Rutgers of works by Beethoven, Mozart, Granados, and De Falla. 30 years after that recital, Rutgers presents Alicia's Hands, a documentary on the life of this unique and unforgettable artist. The New Jersey premiere of this film will be followed by a Q&A with Ms. Alicia Torra, De Larrocha's daughter and a performance by Spanish DMA candidate, Enriqueta Somarriba, of some of De Larrocha's own pieces.

Note: this is not a handicap-accessible venue.
