Bombshell (108 min., R)

At Fox News, there’s always been a brigade of blond women on camera. But it’s what’s going on behind the scenes at Fox News that sparks intrigue. One untouchable man, Roger Ailes, maintains dominion over the entire network. And he’s created an unbearably toxic atmosphere for his female staff, many of whom are approached with highly inappropriate suggestions and forced to deal with harassment. And with million of dollars on the line, there are many who will try to silence women at the network from speaking out. But there’s one thing they weren’t counting on, the women joining up forces.

Conviction (78 min.)

Bianca, Treena, Laura, and Caitlin are a stark reflection of the troubling worldwide tendency to criminalize and imprison the most vulnerable in society—those most affected by poverty, addiction, childhood trauma, and mental illness.  Together with long-time prisoners’ rights advocate Kim Pate

and others, these women collaborate with the filmmakers to answer a deceptively simple question: What would you have needed to avoid incarceration? Through art, photography, filmmaking and poetry, the women inside envision a more ideal world on the outside.

Their creative agency emerges as a force that empowers them to chart the course of their own lives, and they become increasingly engaged in making Conviction—not another “broken prison” film, but rather a “broken society” film.

In the midst of World War I, people are starting to despair. Both soldiers and civilians alike are beginning to feel as if there is no beacon of hope on the horizon. And then a possible solution presents itself, but it will require a daring mission of such magnitude that only a hero would attempt to do it. In this case, two heroes step up to the plate. But they quickly realize that they may be sacrificing their very lives to help end the war.
