King Georges | Edited by TEC alum Amanda Larson

"After more than four decades, America’s finest French restaurant, Philadelphia’s Le Bec Fin, is struggling to keep up with changing tastes. Its tempestuous chef/owner Georges Perrier remains ambivalent: should he sell the restaurant and finally retire, or partner with his talented protégé, Nicholas Elmi (an eventual Top Chef winner), in an attempt to reinvigorate its faded glory King Georges offers an intimate portrait of a passionate culinary artist facing the inevitability of change."
Where to Invade Next | Edited by TEC alum Tyler Walk
9:30 PM, Thu Nov 12, 2015 | SVA Theatre
"Oscar-winning director Michael Moore (Bowling for Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11) returns with his first film in six years. It won acclaim at the Toronto and New York film festivals as his “biggest crowd pleaser” (Variety) and “most far-reaching” (New York Times), and will open in theaters later this year. Moore travels abroad as a one-man army seeking to secure other countries’ best ideas for America. His hilarious encounters raise questions about work, education, female leadership and more. Courtesy of Tom Quinn, Jason Janego and Tim League."

"Netflix presents an exclusive preview of a captivating documentary crime series. Filmed over a ten-year period, Making a Murderer is an unprecedented real-life thriller about a DNA exoneree who, while in the midst of exposing corruption in local law enforcement, finds himself the prime suspect in a grisly new crime. Set in America’s heartland, the series takes viewers inside a high-stakes criminal case where reputation is everything and things are never as they appear. DOC NYC will screen the first two episodes of this ten-part series."

"Seymour Bernstein is a hidden treasure of New York City. He gave up a promising career as a concert pianist to teach music, leaving an indelible influence on his students. Among his admirers is Ethan Hawke, the versatile actor/director/writer, who allows us to experience Seymour’s gift for storytelling as he circles the question of why make art?” Whether aficionados or newcomers to the world of classical music, viewers have much to gain from this introduction."

"Martina, the director of a prominent NYC gallery, is an obsessive collector of the work of late outsider artist Roy Ferdinand, which chronicled a violent, sexual pre-Katrina New Orleans. When she meets Ferdinand’s sisters, they are drawn together by common experience: Martina too is haunted by the spectre of her own brother, the 14-year-old victim of an unsolved murder in 1978 Queens. David Shapiro intricately weaves together the stories of these two brothers in this indelible nonfiction mystery."
