            There's a theory that we should be born with a small amount of alcohol in our blood, and that modest inebriation opens our minds to the world around us, diminishing our problems and increasing our creativity. Heartened by that theory, Martin and three of his friends, all weary hi...gh school teachers, embark on an experiment to maintain a constant level of intoxication throughout the workday. If Churchill won WW2 in a heavy daze of alcohol, who knows what a few drops might do for them and their students? Initial results are positive, and the teachers little project turns into a genuine academic study. Both their classes and their results continue to improve, and the group feels alive again! As the units are knocked back, some of the participants see further improvement and others go off the rails. It becomes increasingly clear that while alcohol may have fuelled great results in world history, some bold acts carry consequences.

            • Available

            Winner of the Grand Jury and Audience Awards at Sundance, and a hot Oscar contender, Minari is a tender, sweeping story that follows a Korean-American family in search of the American Dream. Steven Yeun (Okja, SFF 2017; Burning, SFF 2018; The Walking Dead) is fantastic as Jacob Y...i, a Korean immigrant who is determined to make a success of his life in America. Though his wife Monica (Yeri Han) is deeply sceptical, he moves the family to rural 1980s Arkansas with the hope of creating a viable farm on land that has been historically unproductive. His young son David (Alan S. Kim) and daughter Anne (Noel Cho) have mixed feelings about this move: at first excited by their new mobile home, they soon grow bored being in a backwater. The arrival of their foul-mouthed but loving grandmother (Youn Yuh-jung) from Korea brings new energy to the family dynamic, but Jacobs determination to make it as a successful farmer throws the familys finances, and its relationships, into peril. Clearly a deeply personal project for Lee Isaac Chung, Minari will immerse you in the lives of these delicately drawn characters.
