As Mousavi's supporters rose up to protest Ahmadinejad's victory declaration hours before the polls closed, Bahari endured personal risk by sending footage of the street riots to the BBC. Bahari was arrested by police, led by a man identifying himself only as "Rosewater," who tortured and interrogated him over the next 118 days.

Monday, January 12, 2015 at 7:00pm – AN INCONSISTENT TRUTH. The Susquehanna Valley Conservatives are proud to sponsor this film, which presents the ‘other side’ of the global warming issue. As the title suggests, this is an answer to Al Gore's Oscar-winning documentary, AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH (2006), but it's much more than a simple rebuttal. It was the top-grossing movie per screen in the entire country for its first two weeks, and after an eight-week run, it ranked #442 on the list of top-grossing documentaries of all time. The viewpoint of this film might not be the most popular position on the subject, but it offers refreshing diversity. Diversity, after all, is not just found in different cultures or races or religions. True diversity is diversity of thought. Admission is FREE; donations will be accepted. For more information, please contact Stan Zellers at firstname.lastname@example.org or 570-713-8172. Presented by the Susquehanna Valley Conservatives.

Wednesday, January 28 at 7:30 pm; Doors Open at 7:00 pm – The Weis Center presents: Tanya Tagaq in Concert with Nanook of the North(Multimedia/World Music) Inuit throat singer, improviser and two-time Juno Award nominee Tanya Tagaq reclaims the controversial 1922 silent film classic Nanook of the North. Nanook of the North is considered the world's first major work of non-fiction filmmaking, yet it is rife with contradictions. The film portrays the lives of an Inuk family in Arctic Canada. Its director, Robert Flaherty, lived and worked with Inuit for years, but still included staged scenes of buffoonery and feigned Inuit ignorance of modern accoutrements. Working with composer Derek Charke (whose "Tundra Songs" Tagaq performed with the Kronos Quartet), Tagaq, along with percussionist Jean Martin and violinist Jesse Zubot, performs a live accompaniment to the film's silent images of life in an early 20th-century Inuit community in Northern Quebec. Tagaq employs exquisite improvisations with traditional roots, a style she has perfected over a decade of performances on major stages worldwide, as well as through collaborations with Björk, Mike Patton and many others. Tagaq was awarded the Galaxie Rising Star Award at the 2013 Mundial Montreal for her showcase performance of the program. Adults: $10, Seniors 62+ and Subscribers: $8, Youth 18 and Under: $5, Bucknell Employees and Retirees (limit 2) $5, Bucknell Students: FREE!, Non-Bucknell College Students (limit 2): $5. http://www.Bucknell.edu/BoxOffice or 570-577-1000Please be advised that on the night of the performance cash will be the only accepted form of payment.

BIG HERO 6 (PG) 102 min, Animation/Family. Directors: Don Hall, Chris Williams, Stars: Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Jamie Chung.

CITIZENFOUR (R) 114 min, Documentary. Director: Laura Poitras; Stars: Edward Snowden adn Jacob Appelbaum. In January 2013, Poitras (recipient of the 2012 MacArthur Genius Fellowship and co-recipient of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service) was several years into making a film about surveillance in the post-9/11 era when she started receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four," who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA and other intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she and Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes. Executive Produced by Steven Soderbergh.
DAYS OF HEAVEN (1978) (PG) 95 min. 35MM. Drama. Director: Terrence Malick. Stars: Richard Gere, Brooke Adams, Sam Shepard. Released five years after his debut feature Badlands, Malick’s second film is a decadently illustrated tragedy whose majestic cinematography (by Nestor Almendros) earned the film universal acclaim as a visual masterpiece. Among the fertile wheat fields of the Texas Panhandle in the early 20th century, a wealthy landowner (Shepard, in his first on-screen role) falls in love with the girlfriend (Adams) of a quick-tempered farmhand (Gere). Tensions give way to greed and deception, compromising the harmony of the natural environment that fuels the film’s atmosphere of grace and lyricism. Co-sponsored by the Bucknell Arts Council. Free admission for Arts Pre-Orientation 2014 students. Part of the BU Tuesday evening Film Series - $2
DEUS EX (1971) (NR) 33 min. 16MM. Documentary. Director: Stan Brakhage. One of cinema’s most influential and prolific artists, Stan Brakhage’s output of over 350 films is loaded with countless visionary works.

A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free
HOSPITAL (1970) (NR) 84 min. 16MM. Documentary. Director: Frederick Wiseman. Wiseman’s absorbing profile of a large urban hospital is “as open and revealing as filmed experience has ever been. You look misery in the eye and you realize there’s nothing to be afraid of” (Pauline Kael). With its emphasis on the emergency ward and outpatient clinics, its patients and medical staff bound up in the daily activities of health care in America, Hospital sears the retina and the brain with images of suffering, frustration, fear and dedication. Preceded by Paranoia Corridor (1995, Stan Brakhage, 3 min. 16mm). A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free
THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – Part 1 – (PG-13) 123 min, Adventure/Sci Fi. Director: Francis Lawrence, Stars: Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson.

She meets President Coin who convinces her to be the symbol of rebellion, while trying to save Peeta from the Capitol. Based on the novel by Suzanne Collins.
NATIONAL GALLERY (2014) (NR) 181 min. Documentary. Director: Frederick Wiseman. In his 39th documentary Wiseman takes us behind the scenes of one of the world’s foremost art institutions. In his expansive and probing style, the director constructs a portrait of a place that reveals its inner workings and its relations with the world, listening raptly as docents decode the great canvases of Da Vinci, Rembrandt, and Turner; visiting with the museum’s restorers as they use magnifying glasses, scalpels, and Q-tips to repair an infinitesimal chip; and attending administrative meetings in which senior executives politely battle with younger ones who want the museum to become less stodgy and more welcoming to a larger cross-section of the public. At the heart of the museum, and the film, are the masterpieces themselves, the great works of Western art from the Middle Ages to the 19th Century that inhabit one of the London National Gallery’s premier collections of paintings. Introduced by Bucknell Art History Professor Christiane Andersson. Co-sponsored by the Bucknell Department of Art and Art History. Part of the BU Tuesday evening Film Series - $2
NEW YORK EYE AND EAR CONTROL (1964) (NR) 34 min. 16MM. Non-Fiction. Director: Michael Snow. The first major film work of multidisciplinary artist Michael Snow features a legendary free jazz score by Albert Ayler and Don Cherry and the first screen appearance of Snow’s globally famous "walking woman," a flat sculpture he placed in a variety of real-world situations. A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free
NIGHTCRAWLER (R) 117 min, Crime/Drama/Thriller. Director: Dan Gilroy, Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rene Russo and Bill Paxton. A pulse-pounding thriller set in the nocturnal underbelly of contemporary Los Angeles. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Lou Bloom, a driven young man desperate for work who discovers the high-speed world of L.A. crime journalism. Finding a group of freelance camera crews who film crashes, fires, murder and other mayhem, Lou muscles into the cut-throat, dangerous realm of nightcrawling -- where each police siren wail equals a possible windfall and victims are converted into dollars and cents. Aided by Rene Russo as Nina, a veteran of the blood-sport that is local TV news, Lou thrives. In the breakneck, ceaseless search for footage, he becomes the star of his own story.
ORNETTE: MADE IN AMERICA (1985) (NR) 85 min. 35MM. Documentary. Director: Shirley Clarke. Stars: William Burroughs, Brion Gysin, Buckminster Fuller, Don Cherry, Yoko Ono, Charlie Haden, Robert Palmer, Jayne Cortez and John Rockwell. Chronicling Coleman’s boyhood in segregated Texas and his subsequent emergence as an American cultural pioneer and world-class icon, Clarke uses documentary footage, dramatic scenes and some of the first music video-style segments ever made to portray the inner life of an extraordinary artist. A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free
REMBRANDT’S J’ACCUSE (2008) (NR) 86 min. 35MM. Documentary. Director: Peter Greenaway. Stars: Martin Freeman, Eva Birthistle, Jodhi May. Is “The Night Watch,” Rembrandt’s 1641 masterpiece—and one of the most famous paintings in the world—a scrupulous “indictment of guilt in paint?” Such is cine-provocateur Peter Greenaway’s claim, a contention he scrupulously argues in this unprecedented cinematic investigation into a work of art that the filmmaker reveals to be a revelation of murder. Examining the evidence—dozens of clues hidden throughout the Dutch master’s commissioned group portrait—Greenaway unveils the event, the motive, the conspirators, the murderers and also the outcome for Rembrandt’s career (the artist’s precipitous downfall from wealthy celebrity to discredited pauper). A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free
SANS SOLEIL (1983) (NR) 100 min. 35MM. Documentary. Director: Chris Marker. Marker, the cinemaʼs globetrotter essayist par excellence, traveled between Japan, Africa and Iceland to create his masterpiece portrait of late twentieth-century civilization. Juxtaposing sounds and images with astonishing fluidity, Marker dissolves the distinctions between fiction and non-fiction, offering the viewer the extraordinary sensation of simultaneously spanning the globe and being enclosed within someoneʼs mind. Preceded by Eureka (1974, Ernie Gehr, 16mm. 30 min.) A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free
THEORY OF EVERYTHING (PG-13) 123 min, Bio/Drama/Romance. Director: James Marsh, Stars: Edie Redmayne, Felicity Jones, Tom Prior. This is the extraordinary story of one of the world's greatest living minds, the renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who falls deeply in love with fellow Cambridge student Jane Wilde. Once a healthy, active young man, Hawking received an earth-shattering diagnosis at 21 years of age. With Jane fighting tirelessly by his side, Stephen embarks on his most ambitious scientific work, studying the very thing he now has precious little of – time. The film is based on the memoir Travelling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen, by Jane Hawking, and is directed by Academy Award winner James Marsh ("Man on Wire").
*TRANS (2012) 93 min. Documentary. Director: Chris Arnold. TRANS is an extraordinary documentary feature about men and women... and all the variations in between. It is about the Transgender Community, the most misunderstood and mistreated minority in America. TRANS provides an up-close and very personal vision into the lives, loves, and challenges of a remarkable cast of characters of all ages and from all walks of life. These are stories of confusion and courage, challenge and triumph that have never been told — until now. To anyone who ever wondered, “who they really are,” TRANS asks...”are you brave enough to find out? Sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the Susquehanna Valley – Free
WHIPLASH (R) 107 min, Drama/Music. Director: Damien Chazelle, Stars: Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons. Andrew Neyman is an ambitious young jazz drummer, single-minded in his pursuit to rise to the top of his elite east coast music conservatory. Plagued by the failed writing career of his father, Andrew hungers day and night to become one of the greats. Terence Fletcher, an instructor equally known for his teaching talents as for his terrifying methods, leads the top jazz ensemble in the school. Fletcher discovers Andrew and transfers the aspiring drummer into his band, forever changing the young man's life. Andrew's passion to achieve perfection quickly spirals into obsession, as his ruthless teacher continues to push him to the brink of both his ability – and his sanity.
