My Little Pony: Equestria Girls - Rainbow Rocks*

Sept 27 - Oct 12, 2014

Canterlot High is hosting a musical showcase and Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, and Fluttershy are going to be performing with their new band, The Rainbooms. But when a new girl group, The Dazzlings, arrives at CHS, they convince everyone to turn the friendly showcase into a Battle of the Bands.

As tensions mount between the competing musical acts, a reformed Sunset Shimmer realizes that the Dazzlings may not be ordinary girls and are after something far more sinister than just being named Best Band at Canterlot High. The Rainbooms call on Princess Twilight to return to their world to help them perform a musical counter-spell so that they can win a battle that now determines the fate of the entire school.

Ken Li Wen-Kin is a senior member of the Hong Kong Police Force. He has an egocentric and overpowering personality. He is intolerant of mistakes, his underlings and girlfriend, Brenda suffering due to his macho personality. The main action begins when Inspector Li is brought in to investigate a cop who has committed a crime. On interrogation the cop reveals that he remembers nothing since he met a man the night before. The strange circumstances lead Li to Jack Lai who is a master hypnotist and also in jail for manslaughter after taking the rap for a murder his wife committed under duress. Jack clearly knows who is responsible but is also clear that only he can identify the culprit. Li therefore springs Jack from jail and takes him along. Although they fail to catch the criminal, it is clear from the evidence in the apartment that there is a plot to steal two Egyptian diamonds worth millions.Inadvertently hypnotized by Jack, Inspector Li retrieves the diamonds from the safe. Jack takes them and heads off to give them to Ocean, who is holding his wife hostage. Inspector Li is arrested for stealing the diamonds. His colleagues use the situation to settle some old scores. En route to jail, Inspector Li escapes by jumping from the Qing Ma Bridge. His girlfriend, Brenda, still hopelessly in love with him, helps him to evade recapture to pursue Jack and the criminal mastermind Ocean in order to recover the diamonds.

Tongues of Heaven*

Sunday, October 19th, 2014 3:30pm - 5:30pm

"You already know the importance of saving a language. You know the reason, but not the motivation to save it," admits Anchi Chen, one of the collaborators for TONGUES OF HEAVEN. With 96% of the world's population speaking only 4% of the world's languages, what does it mean today to speak your mother tongue? To put it another way, what do you lose when you lose your native language? Using video as the primary medium of expression, four young indigenous women from the Austronesian language territories Taiwan and Hawai'i share their questions, desires and challenges of learning their heritage languages.

Co-presenters:

The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM)

TaiwaneseAmerican.org

North American Taiwanese Women's Association (NATWA)

Endorsement:

Through the lens of her camera, Anita Chang and her collaborators follow the extraordinary prehistoric expansion of the Austronesian-speaking peoples across the Pacific from Taiwan to Hawai'i, and in her journey she provides a sensitive portrait of the impending death or hoped-for rebirth of some of the languages that arose through this monumental 4,000 year old migration, one of the greatest in human history. Much has been written in the professional linguistics literature in recent years about language endangerment, but this film puts that message in powerful visual form, relating it to individual speakers on whom the future of an entire language or culture may depend.

-Robert A. Blust, Linguist, University of Hawaii

The Joe Show*

October 24th - 30th, 2014 2 Shows Daily

Eight years in the making, The Joe Show is a shocking and wildly entertaining documentary on America's most controversial Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, and his ring-master's approach to modern media, politics and law enforcement. The nature of politics has changed so that in today's world of instant fame, politicians need their time in the spotlight. And Joe loves the spotlight. Response time is compromised for screen time, credibility for celebrity and safety for sound bites. Joe's desire for fame corrupts everything he stands for and the voters cheer as ratings soar. The Joe Show is a feature-length documentary that explores how Joe has used fear, crime and his role as Sheriff to make himself the most famous law enforcement officer in the world. Racism, sex crimes, illegal immigration, first amendment rights and multiple deaths at the hands of his employees are all issues Joe faces and spins. He's famous, he's outrageous, he may be dangerous... and it's all just part of The Joe Show, a tragic comedy of historic significance.

The Homestretch*

The Homestretch follows three homeless teens as they fight to stay in school, graduate, and build a future. Each of these smart, ambitious teenagers - Kasey, Anthony and Roque - will surprise, inspire, and challenge audiences to rethink stereotypes of homelessness as they work to complete their education while facing the trauma of being alone and abandoned at an early age. Through haunting images, intimate scenes, and first-person narratives, these teens take us on their journeys of struggle and triumph. As their stories unfold, the film connects us deeply with larger policy issues of juvenile justice, immigration, foster care, and LGBTQIA rights.
