Garry Winogrand: All Things are Photographable

Plays February 17 & 18 at the Michigan!
Forged by Garry Winogrand's own words and images, this documentary is a stunningly intimate portrait of an artist who both personified his era and transformed it. Decades before digital technology transformed how we make and see pictures, Winogrand made hundreds of thousands of them with his 35mm Leica, creating an encyclopedic portrait of America from the late 1950s to the early 1980s in the process. When he died suddenly at age 56, Winogrand left behind more than 10,000 rolls of film - more than a quarter of a million pictures! He produced so many unseen images that it has taken until now for the full measure of his artistic legacy to emerge.

Las Cafeteras

February 20 at 7:30 PM. Presented by UMS. Tickets available at

The Los Angeles Times describes Las Cafeteras as a “uniquely Angeleno mishmash of punk, hip-hop, beat music, cumbia, and rock…live, they’re magnetic.”

Born and raised east of Los Angeles, the six-piece band is remixing roots music and telling modern-day stories. They create a vibrant musical fusion with a unique East LA sound and positive message, a mix-and-match of styles and sources that deliver socially conscious lyrics in both English and Spanish. Their wildly vibrant Afro-Mexican beats, rhythms, and rhymes document stories of a community looking for love and fighting for justice in the concrete jungle of Los Angeles.

Opens Friday, February 22 at the Michigan!
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival! Nadine Labaki's Capernaum ("Chaos") follows the journey of Zain, a gutsy, streetwise 12-year-old boy, as he flees his negligent parents and survives the dangers of the city streets by his wits. Along the way, he takes care of Ethiopian refugee and her baby son, ends up being jailed for a crime, and, ultimately, seeks justice in a courtroom against his parents for the “crime” of giving him life.
Capernaum was made with a cast of non-professionals playing characters whose lives closely parallel their own. Following her script, Labaki placed her performers in scenes and asked them to react spontaneously with their own words and gestures. When the non-actors's instincts diverged from the written script, Labaki adapted the screenplay to follow them. Presented in Arabic and Amharic with English subtitles.

Pioneers: First Women Filmmakers

With live organ accompaniment! In the Wild West days of early filmmaking—before Hollywood hardened into an assembly-line behemoth and boys’ club - talented women worked regularly as writers, producers, and directors, instrumental in shaping the very language of cinema as we know it. Nevertheless, figures like Alice Guy Blaché and Lois Weber are known today primarily by aficionados, and artists like Nell Shipman, Grace Cunard, and Marion E. Wong remain woefully obscure. Bringing together dozens of essential new restorations, this series spotlights the daring, innovative, and trailblazing work of the first female filmmakers and restores their centrality to the creation of cinema itself.
