The Mule

Earl Stone (Clint Eastwood), a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that only requires him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he's signed on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. He does well -- so well, in fact, that his cargo increases and he is assigned a handler. But he isn't the only one keeping tabs on Earl; the new drug mule has also hit the radar of DEA agent Colin Bates. As Earl’s money problems become a thing of the past, his past mistakes weigh heavily on him.

All is True

The year is 1613, Shakespeare is acknowledged as the greatest writer of the age. But disaster strikes when his renowned Globe Theatre burns to the ground, and devastated, Shakespeare returns to Stratford, where he must face a troubled past and a neglected family. Haunted by the death of his only son Hamnet, he struggles to mend the broken relationships with his wife and daughters. In so doing, he is ruthlessly forced to examine his own failings as husband and father. His very personal search for the truth uncovers secrets and lies within a family at war.

Love, Gilda

This documentary opens a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of beloved performer Gilda Radner, whose greatest role was sharing her story. Working with the Radner estate, documentarians unearthed a collection of diaries and personal tapes archiving Gilda’s childhood, comedy career, relationships and ultimately, struggles with cancer. The never-before-seen-or-heard footage and journal entries form the narrative spine of the documentary, allowing Gilda to tell her own story - through laughter and sometimes tears.

Searching for Winnetou
Saturday, October 5  | 2:00pm-4:00pm 
Searching for Winnetou explores the controversy surrounding cultural appropriation of Indigenous culture in an innovative, hilarious, unnerving, yet inspiring way.  For years Drew Hayden Taylor, prolific playwright and author of dozens of Canadian-Indigenous books, has noticed a high proportion of German tourists visiting Canada, many who have come looking for a real “Indianer” experience (what Germans call the North American Native lifestyle).  Inevitably, almost every one of these Germans will relate stories of Winnetou: Germany’s most famous, but mythical, Apache warrior.
 
Mr. Jane and Finch
Saturday, October 26 | 2:00pm-4:00pm 
When 80-year-old community activist Winston LaRose detects early signs of gentrification in Toronto’s Jane and Finch neighbourhood, he embarks on an impassioned run to become councillor of the ward. The opening of several new subway stations nearby and a confirmed plan to build light-rail transit in the neighbourhood, in particular, cement Winston’s instinct to advocate for the community and protect its residents against displacement.

In "The Public," an unusually bitter Arctic blast has made its way to downtown Cincinnati and the front doors of the public library. At odds with library officials over how to handle the extreme weather event, some homeless patrons turn the building into a shelter for the night by staging an "Occupy" sit-in. What begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a stand-off with police, exacerbated by a rush-to-judgment media, constantly speculating about what's really happening.
