    The Salt of the Earth

    Photographer Sebastião Salgado, who has witnessed some of the major events of our recent history, is now embarking on the discovery of grandiose landscapes as a tribute to the planet's beauty. Salgado's life and work are revealed to us by his son, Juliano, and by the great German filmmaker Wim Wenders. “The Salt of the Earth deals with two kinds of journeys the photographer made. The outward one may have literally taken him to the furthest corners of the Earth and resulted in the stunning images the film features, but it is the inward journey that paralleled it that completely holds our attention.” -Kenneth Turan Los Angeles Times

    5 To 7

    A chance encounter on the streets of Manhattan draws 20-something aspiring writer Brian into a passionate love affair with a glamorous French woman (Skyfall Bond girl Bérénice Marlohe). The catch? She’s married and can only meet him for hotel room trysts between the hours of 5 and 7. “Courageously sentimental in an age of irony, Victor Levin's refreshingly articulate 5 to 7 delivers romance of the sort thought lost.” -Peter Debruge, Variety
