“One of the most controversial American men of the 20th Century, Roy Cohn was a ruthless lawyer and political power broker whose 28-year career ranged from acting as chief counsel to Senator Joseph McCarthy’s Communist-hunting subcommittee to molding the career of a young Queens real estate developer named Donald Trump.”

“Cohn formulated his playbook in the 50s, but it is all too familiar today: always attack; never admit blame or apologize; use favors and fear to ensure support for your objectives; expertly manipulate the media to gain advantage and destroy your opponents; lie shamelessly, invalidating the idea of truth; weaponize lawsuits; evade taxes and bills; and, most importantly, inflame the prejudices of the crowd by scapegoating defenseless people. Both for those who remember Cohn and those who were too young to have any awareness of him, Matt Tyrnauer’s WHERE’S MY ROY COHN? lays out who Cohn was and how his lessons to his apprentice Donald Trump have shaped contemporary American politics.” – Sony Pictures Classics

Athena is a mother who will do everything in her power to protect her herd when they are forced to leave their watering hole. This epic journey, narrated by Chiwetel Ejiofor, takes us across the African savannah, and into the heart of an elephant family. A tale of love, loss and coming home.

The African savanna elephant is the world’s largest animal and one of the few species that live in a matriarchal society. The Elephant Queen introduces us to Athena, a 50-year-old “tusker”—a now rare elephant whose tusks grow long enough to reach the ground—who is queen of her herd. These animals live in the arid lands of Africa, where food and water are scarce and there is a precarious balance between life and death. We join them as their “green season” watering hole is drying up, and Athena is weighing the dangerous trek to the oasis that is their dry-season refuge, a precarious journey particularly for the youngest elephants. Throughout their adventure, we witness their lives, the challenges they face, and the complex ecosystem that depends on them for survival. Featuring beautiful cinematography and honeyed narration, this glimpse into a complex animal society contextualizes how the changing, unforgiving climate and illegal poaching are substantially impacting these majestic pachyderms and ultimately the ecosystem they help maintain.

Wednesday, October 23rd at 8:15 in Rhinebeck
Upstate Films and SunCommon co-present this FREE documentary screening about the challenges ecologists and conservationists face in the lucrative salmon-hatchery industry.

The commercial seafood supply chain is complex and often produces unreliable information. To highlight the high stakes of this industry and help viewers understand how to responsibly source their seafood, Artifishal talks to leading scientists and fish-conservation groups. Positing that hatcheries and open-water fish farms are driving wild fish to extinction around the world, the film documents the high cost of our reliance on human-engineered solutions, explores our loss of faith in nature, and shows how communities and ecosystems are impacted as wild salmon slide toward extinction.

*Artifishal was produced by Patagonia, who, like SunCommon, is a certified B Corporation that aims to balance purpose with profit.

(USA / 2019 / Directed by Josh Murphy)
Unrated / 1 hr 15 mins.

This screening is being presented for free thanks to the generous support of SunCommon.
