Dear White People is a sly, provocative satire of race relations in the age of Obama. The film follows four black students at Winchester University, where the unexpected election of activist Samantha White (Tessa Thompson) as head of a traditionally black residence hall sets up a college campus culture war that challenges conventional notions of what it means to be black. While Sam leverages her notoriety as host of the provocative and polarizing radio show "Dear White People" to try to prevent the college from diversifying Armstrong Parker House, outgoing head-of-house Troy (Brandon P. Bell) defies his father's lofty expectations by applying to join the staff of Pastiche, the college's influential humor magazine. Lionel (Tyler James Williams), an Afro-sporting sci-fi geek, is recruited by the otherwise all-white student newspaper to go undercover and write about black culture—a subject he knows little about—while the aggressively assimilated Coco (Teyonah Parris) tries to use the controversy on campus to carve out a career in reality TV. With tongue planted firmly in cheek, Dear White People explores racial identity in "post-racial" America while weaving a universal story of forging one's unique path in the world. Winner of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival's Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent. Official Web Site

Award-winning independent filmmaker Rory Kennedy (Ghosts of Abu Ghraib, Ethel) dares to reopen the books on a war that scarred our national psyche. Chronicling a story few of us know, Kennedy's potent documentary may both shock you and restore your faith in humanity. During the chaotic final days of the Vietnam War, the North Vietnamese Army closes in on Saigon as South Vietnamese resistance crumbles. The United States has only a skeleton crew of diplomats and military operatives still in the country. As Communist victory becomes inevitable and the U.S. readies to withdraw, some Americans begin to consider the certain imprisonment and possible death of their South Vietnamese allies, co-workers and friends. Meanwhile, the prospect of an official evacuation of South Vietnamese becomes terminally delayed by Congressional gridlock and the inexplicably optimistic U.S. Ambassador. With the clock ticking and the city under fire, a number of heroic Americans take matters into their own hands, engaging in unsanctioned and often makeshift operations in a desperate effort to save as many South Vietnamese lives as possible.

His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C.—and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life.

Screenwriter Hossein Amini (Drive, The Wings of the Dove) makes a stylish directing debut with this sleek thriller set in Greece and Istanbul in 1962. Intrigue begins at the Parthenon when a glamorous, wealthy American couple—the charismatic Chester MacFarland (Viggo Mortensen) and his alluring young wife Collete (Kirsten Dunst)—meet Rydal (Oscar Isaac, Inside Llewyn Davis), a Greek-speaking American who is working as a tour guide, scamming female tourists on the side. Instead of becoming his latest marks, the two befriend him, but a murder at the couple's hotel puts all three on the run together and creates a precarious bond between them as the trio's allegiance is put to the test. Their journey takes them from Greece to Turkey, and to a dramatic finale played out in the back alleys of Istanbul's Grand Bazaar.

In the coming-of-age mystery White Bird in a Blizzard, Kat Connors (Shailene Woodley, Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars) is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve (Eva Green), a beautiful, enigmatic, and haunted woman, disappears—just as Kat is discovering and relishing her newfound sexuality. Having lived for so long in a stifled, emotionally repressed household, she barely registers her mother’s absence and certainly doesn’t blame her doormat of a father, Brock (Christopher Meloni), for the loss. In fact, it’s almost a relief. But as time passes, Kat begins to come to grips with how deeply Eve’s disappearance has affected her. Returning home on a break from college, she finds herself confronted with the truth about her mother’s departure, and her own denial about the events surrounding it... Co-starring Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane and Angela Bassett. Written and directed by Gregg Araki (Mysterious Skin, The Doom Generation), based on the novel by Laura Kasischke.

Federico Fellini's reputation as a film auteur and director of international stature was established with this moving dramatic comedy about the wastrels of a small provincial Italian town who gradually become disenchanted with the city's suffocating atmosphere. Vitelloni means "big calves" in Italian; Fellini uses the word to describe idle young men without occupations who refuse to grow up and are supported by parents, relatives and friends. The film served as an inspiration for Barry Levinson's Diner.

In January 2013, filmmaker Laura Poitras was in the process of constructing a film about abuses of national security in post-9/11 America when she started receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four," who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA and other intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she and reporter Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes. Poitras is a masterful storyteller: she compresses the many days of questioning, waiting, confirming, watching the world's reaction and agonizing over the next move, into both a great character study of Snowden and a narrative that will leave you on the edge of your seat as it inexorably moves toward its conclusion.
