Ikiru brings us a man, Kanji Watanabe, who outwardly has lived an accomplished, if boring, life in Japanese civil service. When a diagnosis of stomach cancer reveals that he's only got a maximum of six months to live, he's confronted with the inadequacies of his pursuits. He's forced to strip the veneer off his existence and find meaning in his final days. Watanabe's life is told through the reflections, perceptions, and impressions of the people around him in two parts; Watanabe's quest in the present and then through a series of flashbacks.

11/14/2019 - Film: L'amore Molesto (Troubling Love)
What happened to Amalia? Who was with her the night she died? Her daughter Delia is saddened by the news, yet she is not surprised. She considers her mother to be a disgrace even before she hears of the sordid circumstances of her death. Delia travels home to Naples for the funeral and tries to piece together her mother's recent life. By doing so, she starts to confront her childhood memories that shaped their family history. Based on the first novel by Elena Ferrante.

Screening after Troubling Love is the film Ferrante Fever.
With over 5 million copies of her "Neapolitan Novels" sold and publication rights in 50 countries, Elena Ferrante is a global literary sensation. A journey between New York City's cultural hub and Ferrante's native Italy explores how an anonymous, translated author's visceral tales of love and friendship gained such an enthusiastic following. Ann Goldstein, Sarah McNally, Jonathan Franzen, Roberto Saviano and others weigh in on the Ferrante "mania" and what makes her work—and her mysterious persona—so uniquely captivating.

About the film: Two Native American tribal court judges in California strive to reduce incarceration rates and heal their people by restoring rather than punishing offenders. Abby is a fierce, lean elder who has dedicated her life to humane justice. Claudette represents a new generation of Native American lawyers who are revisioning justice. The film follows cases in and out of their courts. Taos Proctor is facing life in prison when we meet him in Abby's court. We follow his story over two years as Abby and her staff help him rebuild his life. A thousand miles south, Claudette reunites a nine-year-old boy with his family. Meanwhile her teenage nephew is at risk of entering the school to prison pipeline.
