“Directed with surpassing sensitivity and visual lyricism” –Washington Post
“12 O’Clock Boys” packs more life into its 72 minutes than many longer documentaries do.” –NY Times
“Eye-opening…makes you realize how little of the American underclass gets seen by this country’s
mass media.” –Boston Globe
About the Film:
Pug, a thirteen year old boy living on a dangerous Westside block of Baltimore, has one goal in
mind: to join the 12 O’Clock Boys; the notorious urban dirt-bike group. Converging from all parts
of the inner city, they invade the streets and clash with police, who are forbidden to chase the
bikes for fear of endangering the public. Pug looks to the pack for mentorship, spurred by their
dangerous lifestyle and deep bonds. He narrates their world as if explaining a dreamscape—an
action-packed world full of power and freedom. The film captures this world with unprecedented
intimacy as the riders themselves guide us into a culture few get to access. The film presents
the pivotal years of change in a boy’s life growing up in one of the most dangerous and
economically depressed cities in the United States.

About the Film:
MR. TURNER explores the last quarter century of the great if eccentric British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851).
Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea.
Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.

Coherence’s brilliance comes from forcing the question of whether we truly know what we’re capable of.
— Filmink Australia
This low-cost thriller proves that something approaching brilliance is not just a function of budget –Ft. Worth Star-Telegram
Scrape away the sci-fi trappings and this emerges as a caustic, closely observed drama about some narcissistic California types with obvious tensions in their lives that are only heightened when normal routines are disrupted. — The Independent (UK)
About the Film
On the night of an astrological anomaly, eight friends at a dinner party experience a troubling chain of reality bending events. Part cerebral sci-fi and part relationship drama, COHERENCE is a tightly focused, intimately shot film that quickly ratchets up with tension and mystery.

Personal Documentary – Director, Ross McElwee
1985/ USA/ 157 minutes (plus intermission)
Grand Jury Prize Sundance Film Festival
Selected by the Library of Congress for Preservation in the National Film Registry
“McElwee is a film maker-anthropologist with a rare appreciation for the eccentric details of our edgy civilization” — Vincent Canby, New York Times
Ross McElwee is a modern master of cinema vérité — rough, real-life documentary filmmaking that seeks to expose a subject’s soul. — Austin Chronicle
Sherman’s March is a tremendously original work, and, in fact, may be the first overtly subjective documentary of its kind. — Karen Cooper, Sundance Institute
About the Film
Ross McElwee grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina in the 1960-70s, making backyard home movies of family and freinds as a hobby/obsession, much to the chagrin of his father, a highly respected local surgeon, who had hoped Ross would go to medical school, like his older brother.
Ross kicked around local TV stations filming news for a while. He then obtained a grant to make a documentary about the lingering effects of General Sherman’s march of destruction through the South during the Civil War. However, he is continually sidetracked by women who come and go in his life, his recurring dreams of nuclear holocaust, and Burt Reynolds.
SHERMAN’S MARCH is credited as the first film in the style of “personal documentary,” where the filmmaker is the subject, which results in many strange, hilarious, and profound insights about the intersection of the creative process and real life. It is a priceless portrait of the shifts in Southern Culture in the 1980s.
To the assumed relief of his parents, McElwee has been teaching film making at Harvard since 1986, and this and a dozen other films has made him one of the seminal documentary filmmakers of our era.

Studio-C Cinema has moved its primary screening space to The Warehouse Performing Arts Center in Cornelius, North Carolina. After a successful fifteen month partnership with The Cornelius Art Center, we agreed that our rapid growth could not be effectively accommodated in their multi-pupose art studio.
As a finished theater, The Warehouse meets our technical needs of good sight lines, comfortable new seating, good acoustics, fully controllable lighting, and efficiencies gained in a permanent, single-purpose theater space.
