In Sugar, Miguel, a Dominican baseball pitcher from the small town of San Pedro De Macorís, single-mindedly focuses on training at a pro baseball academy – as so many in his country do –awaiting his chance to graduate to the minor leagues in the U.S., and to help pull his family out of poverty. At 19, he gets his break – a call-up to spring training for a team in Iowa – but what happens when his game falters? And were all the sacrifices worth it? A beautifully filmed, exquisitely acted drama from Brooklyn filmmakers Boden & Fleck that takes a bracing new look at a fractured American dream.
Outdoor Cinema is an annual international festival of open-air cinema, music, dance, and food. It includes eight weeks of films at Socrates Sculpture Park, taking place on Wednesday evenings through August 21. The festival kicks off on July 3rd with a new American film to welcome Independence Day weekend: Our Nixon, a feature-length documentary directed by Penny Lane, first debuted in March at SXSW and to be released in theaters in July 2013. Outdoor Cinema 2013 features eight international titles from Chad, the Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Mexico, Romania, South Korea, Turkey, and the United States.
In addition to the films, which are presented in their original language (with English subtitles), each evening will feature regional cuisine from neighborhood restaurants and performances by local musicians and dancers that celebrate the culture of the film. Pre-screening performances begin at 7:00pm and films begin at sunset (weather permitting). From 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m., we will also offer free sunset paddling sessions from the Socrates Sculpture Park beach at Hallets Cove, just north of the park.

DJs hit the stage at 6:00pm and movies begin at sundown.

LINEUP:

July 11 - Ferris Bueller's Day Off
High School truant extraordinaire, Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) plots to take one last grand day off before graduation, touring the streets on Chicago in a Ferrari “borrowed” from a friend’s father while staying one step ahead of principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones).

July 18 - Enter the Dragon
Under the guise of an international martial arts competition, Bruce Lee and partners John Saxon and Jim Kelly infiltrate the hidden island fortress of a powerful drug syndicate off the coast of Hong Kong.

[R] Short film: Catnip: Egress to Oblivion by Jason Willis DJ: Hahn Solo

July 25 - Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
When young Charlie Bucket finds the final golden ticket wrapped inside a Wonka Bar, he is granted access to the secret mysteries of Mr. Wonka’s (Gene Wilder) chocolate factory.

August 15 - Rocky
After the top boxing contender drops out, small time debt collector Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) gets a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship. Set on the eve of the Philadelphian Bicentennial, Rocky took Hollywood by surprise, as the rags-to-riches classic creamed box offices and won the Academy Award for best picture, in addition to featuring one of film history’s most iconic training montages. [PG] Short film: Marcel, King of Tervuren by Tom Schroeder DJ: Emch

August 22 - Vertigo
Retired private eye, Scottie Ferguson (Jimmy Stewart) battles acrophobia in one final case, trailing the enchanting Madeleine Elster (Kim Novak).

  • Good Will Hunting
    At one of Boston’s top universities, MIT janitor Will Hunting (Matt Damon) is discovered after solving one of the schools most vexing math equations, but the future of this brilliant mind depends on the guidance of therapist Sean Maguire (Robin Williams). [R]

Jumanji is a visually elaborate fantasy about an enchanted board game that opens a magical portal to a jungle universe. Two young children, Judy (Kirsten Dunst) and Peter (Bradley Pierce), discover the game in an abandoned home and suddenly are greeted by Alan (Robin Williams), an adult who has spent his life trapped inside the game since playing it at age 12. Alan's only hope for freedom involves finishing the game, but this proves rather dangerous, as Judy, Peter, and Alan find themselves running for their lives from huge rhinoceroses, evil monkeys, vicious lions, and other terrifying jungle beasts. Director Joe Johnston, whose special-effects background previously came to good use in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, used groundbreaking computer imagery to simulate the thrills.

Considered “the grandmother of the New Wave” in France, Agnès Varda melds literary and documentary conventions with the politics of feminism and compassion, and a whimsical touch that is all her own. The Gleaners and I, inspired in part by the Jean-François Millet painting, uses the subject of gleaning (the act of gathering leftovers) to create a warm and witty discourse on, among other things, the nature of consumerist society and the role of creativity in survival.

Outdoor Cinema is an annual international festival of open-air cinema, music, dance, and food that includes eight weeks of films at Socrates Sculpture Park, taking place on Wednesday evenings through August 21. Outdoor Cinema 2013 features eight international titles from Chad, the Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Mexico, Romania, South Korea, Turkey, and the United States – selected by Karen Cooper, Director, and Mike Maggiore, Programmer and Publicist, Film Forum, and Dan Nuxoll, Program Director, and Mark Elijah Rosenberg, Artistic Director, Rooftop Films.

In addition to the films, which are presented in their original language (with English subtitles), each evening will feature regional cuisine from neighborhood restaurants and performances by local musicians and dancers that celebrate the culture of the film. Pre-screening performances begin at 7:00 p.m. and films begin at sunset (weather permitting). From 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m., we will also offer free sunset paddling sessions from the Socrates Sculpture Park beach at Hallets Cove, just north of the park.
Admission is free, and the evening’s food and performance line-up is announced the week prior.

DJs hit the stage at 6:00pm and movies begin at sundown.

LINEUP:

July 11 - Ferris Bueller's Day Off
High School truant extraordinaire, Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) plots to take one last grand day off before graduation, touring the streets on Chicago in a Ferrari “borrowed” from a friend’s father while staying one step ahead of principal Rooney (Jeffrey Jones).

July 18 - Enter the Dragon
Under the guise of an international martial arts competition, Bruce Lee and partners John Saxon and Jim Kelly infiltrate the hidden island fortress of a powerful drug syndicate off the coast of Hong Kong.

[R] Short film: Catnip: Egress to Oblivion by Jason Willis DJ: Hahn Solo

July 25 - Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
When young Charlie Bucket finds the final golden ticket wrapped inside a Wonka Bar, he is granted access to the secret mysteries of Mr. Wonka’s (Gene Wilder) chocolate factory.

[G] Short film: Irish Folk Furniture by Tony Donoghue DJ: Ayres

August 1 - 8 Mile
Rapper Eminem made his acting debut in this semi-autobiographical journey of a white kid trying to make it as a hip-hop artist in the bombed out heart of inner city Detroit. After freezing up during an important rap battle, the young rapper, Rabbit, thinks he is at a dead end, but his girlfriend (Britney Murphy) helps him build up the courage to take one last shot. [R] Short film: Until the Quiet Comes by Kahlil Joseph DJ: Who Am I

August 8 - Roman Holiday

The two dodge her secret service guards all throughout the city while giving the Princess a taste of the real world. [NR] Short film: How She Slept At Night by Lilli Carré DJ: $mall ¢hange

August 15 - Rocky
After the top boxing contender drops out, small time debt collector Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) gets a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship. Set on the eve of the Philadelphian Bicentennial, Rocky took Hollywood by surprise, as the rags-to-riches classic creamed box offices and won the Academy Award for best picture, in addition to featuring one of film history’s most iconic training montages. [PG] Short film: Marcel, King of Tervuren by Tom Schroeder DJ: Emch

August 22 - Vertigo
Retired private eye, Scottie Ferguson (Jimmy Stewart) battles acrophobia in one final case, trailing the enchanting Madeleine Elster (Kim Novak). Hailed as one of Alfred Hitchcock’s greatest works, winding through the streets of San Francisco in dazzlingly rich Technicolor, Vertigo weaves a dizzying story of love and obsession. [PG] Short film: My Favorite Picture of You by Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin DJ: Geko Jones

    Raoul Duke (Johnny Depp) and his attorney Dr. Gonzo (Benicio del Toro) take on the spiraling psychedelic safari of 1970s Las Vegas on a savage journey to the heart of the American Dream. Terry Gilliam’s highly stylized trip of a film captures all the whit, humor and horror of Hunter S. Thompson’s classic work of Gonzo journalism. [R]
  • Good Will Hunting
    At one of Boston’s top universities, MIT janitor Will Hunting (Matt Damon) is discovered after solving one of the schools most vexing math equations, but the future of this brilliant mind depends on the guidance of therapist Sean Maguire (Robin Williams). [R]

In the past year the world lost both folk legend Pete Seeger and his wife of seventy years, Toshi. The Hudson River Park is proud to present the opening night of Seeger Fest, a FREE five-day event honoring the lives and legacies of Pete and Toshi Seeger through music, film and community events.

The opening night will be a screening of the Emmy Award-winning documentary, Pete Seeger: The Power of Song that follows Mr. Seeger’s life as a musician and activist. The film includes interviews with Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, Arlo Guthrie and many others. Before the screening there will be a short concert featuring The Chapin Sisters with special guests Adira & Alana Amram, Aurora Barnes and Kristen Graves, skilled singer-songwriters who bring their own style and voice to the stage. They frequently collaborate with their father Tom Chapin and are inspired by their late uncle Harry Chapin who, like Pete, used music as a tool for social change.

After the music and before the screening, Kitama Cahill-Jackson, Pete Seeger’s grandson and associate producer of Pete Seeger: The Power of Song will briefly talk about the film and answer a few questions from the audience.

Please go to www.SeegerFest.org to learn about the additional Seeger Fest events which include a July 20th concert at Lincoln Center Out of Doors and a July 21st concert at SummerStage in Central Park.

Bobby Sanabria - drummer, percussionist, composer, arranger, recording artist, producer, filmmaker, conductor, educator, activist, multi-cultural warrior and multiple Grammy nominee - has performed with a veritable Who's Who in the world of jazz and Latin music, as well as with his own critically acclaimed ensembles. His diverse recording and performing experience includes work with such legendary figures as Dizzy Gillespie, Tito Puente, Paquito D'Rivera, Charles McPherson, Mongo Santamaría, Ray Barretto, Marco Rizo, Arturo Sandoval, Roswell Rudd, Chico O'Farrill, Candido, Yomo Toro, Francisco Aguabella, Larry Harlow, Henry Threadgill, and the Godfather of Afro-Cuban Jazz, Mario Bauzá.

Chico & Rita is a stunning, Oscar-nominated animated feature for adults. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams, while Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unites them, but their journey -- in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero -- brings heartache and torment, as they battle impossible odds to unite in music and love. Along the way they meet Chano Pozo, Dizzy Gillespie and travel to three continents in pursuit of their passions. Directed by Tono Errando, Javier Mariscal, Fernando Trueba.

As part of its Outdoor Cinema 2014 season, Socrates Sculpture Park will be screening 13 Assassins, a Japanese film directed by Takashi Miike. A samurai epic set in the 19th century during the end of Japan's feudal era: when a sadistic, imperious lord is poised to ascend to the throne, a group of unemployed samurai are enlisted to stop him--and his band of over 200 men. Cult director Takashi Miike takes a restrained, classical approach to this story of two traditions struggling for dominance, adding his own perverse touches and staging bravura action sequences--culminating in an extended, stupendously choreographed sword battle.

Pre-screening performances and food begin at 7pm; screening begins at sundown. This film is not suitable for children.

Outdoor Cinema is an annual international film festival that takes place every Wednesday evening in July and August. Focusing on a different country or culture each screening, this program invites visitors to picnic on the grass, see musical and dance performances, enjoy the waterfront breeze, and watch exceptional international films on an outdoor screen.

In homage to the women of soul music, SummerStage, ImageNation and Ubiquita Worldwide present Bellatrix!: A Soul Train Tribute to Women in Music. Dance, listen and watch with us as we celebrate the likes of Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, Nona Hendryx, Tina Turner, Celia Cruz and others! This fete kicks off with live performances by special guests Jamila Raegan, The Ki Ki Experience, Raye Six & Phyllisia Ross accompanied by backing band Winston's Crew Collective under the direction of bandleader Dannis Winston. The concert will be followed by a Soul Train Jam spun by the Ubiquita Sound System and a screening of the Academy Award winning film Twenty Feet From Stardom.

Ubiquita Sound System is home to an ever-growing roster of brilliantly talented an accomplished female DJ's. Established in 2000, as one of the first groundbreaking all-female DJ residencies in NYC nightlife, the Ubiquita brand has become synonymous with a stamp of excellence for women on the 1 & 2's .The legendary DJ collective has appeared on the cover of the Village Voice and have played a wide array of venues, special events and cultural institutions around the world.

Formerly known as the Ladies of Ubiquita, these gorgeous selectors' more notable appearances include Good Day NY, The Studio Museum of Harlem, SummerStage, Brooklyn Academy of Music, VH1 Hip Hop Honors weekend, The Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum, Winter Music Conference in Miami, The Brooklyn Museum & Harlem Stage. Notable brand partnerships include Scion, Red Bull & Cover Girl.

This Academy Award-winning documentary is the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, the film is both a tribute to the unsung voices who brought shape and style to popular music and a reflection on the conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent harmonizing with others. Twenty Feet from Stardom juxtaposes interviews with industry legends (Bruce Springsteen, Bette Midler, and others) and the relative unknowns who support them like Darlene Love, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer, and Judith Hill as they illuminate the art of melding their own distinct voices with lead vocals and reveal their desires for careers as solo artists.

As part of its Outdoor Cinema 2014 season, Socrates Sculpture Park will be screening Microcosmos, a French film directed by Claude Nuridsany and Marie Pérennou. Microcosmos features some of the most gorgeous macro-photography of insects ever put on screen. Shooting with custom cameras and lenses that took three years to develop, the filmmakers turn a French meadow into an otherwordly adventure as its denizens—a seemingly infinite variety of bugs—crawl, fly, creep, and leap. This is an amazing voyage into a surprising and often humorous miniature universe, a surreal, wordless visual treat for children and adults alike. More here.

Pre-screening performances and food begin at 7pm; screening begins at sundown.

Outdoor Cinema is an annual international film festival that takes place every Wednesday evening in July and August. Focusing on a different country or culture each screening, this program invites visitors to picnic on the grass, see musical and dance performances, enjoy the waterfront breeze, and watch exceptional international films on an outdoor screen.

As part of its Outdoor Cinema 2014 season, Socrates Sculpture Park will be screening the Italian film Umberto D., directed by Vittorio De Sica. A neorealist masterpiece from De Sica (The Bicycle Thief), Umberto D.follows a few days in the life of the title character, a retired bureaucrat: the police break up his pensioners’ strike; a canteen hostess catches him feeding his lunch to his dog, Flike; his landlady threatens him with eviction; a sympathetic young maid reveals she’s pregnant; and pride quashes his attempts to beg in front of the Pantheon. Umberto D. is bursting with life – a heartfelt tale of a man struggling to hold onto his dignity in the face of ageism and a changing, postwar Italy.

Following Umberto D. will be Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer, with filmmaker Maxim Pozdorovkin in person. Rated R for explicit sexual content. Not appropriate for audiences under 17.

Directed by Maxim Pozdorovkin and Mike Lerner, Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer tells the story of Russian punk-rock activists Pussy Riot--Katia, Masha, and Nadia--who staged a balaclava-masked performance at a Moscow cathedral (protesting the head of the Orthodox Church for supporting Putin's campaign) and earned the wrath of the regime. Their arrest and trial for "hooliganism" against the church follows. A fascinating documentary portrait of a courageous, defiant collective whose impact continues to be felt worldwide.

Outdoor Cinema is an annual international film festival that takes place every Wednesday evening in July and August. Focusing on a different country or culture each screening, this program invites visitors to picnic on the grass, see musical and dance performances, enjoy the waterfront breeze, and watch exceptional international films on an outdoor screen.
