Human Capital

Human Capital

Saturday, January 24 | 4:15pm, 7:15pm
Sunday, January 25 | 2:15pm, 4:45pm, 7:15pm

Directed By: Paolo Virzi
Rated: Unrated
Running Time: 110 min.

Human Capital begins at the end, as a cyclist is run off the road by a careening SUV the night before Christmas Eve. As details emerge of the events leading up to the accident, the lives of the well-to-do Bernaschi family, privileged and detached, will intertwine with the Ossolas, struggling to keep their comfortable middle-class life, in ways neither could have expected. Dino Ossola, in dire financial straits, anticipates the birth of twins with his second wife. Meanwhile, Dino’s teenage daughter’s relationship with hedge-fund manager Giovanni Bernaschi’s playboy son complicates an already tricky social dance of status, money and ambition. Observing transformative events from each character’s perspective, the film is a nuanced account of desire, greed and the value of human life in an age of rampant capitalism and financial manipulation. In Italian with English subtitles.

“Not just a chic thriller, but an engrossing study of Italian society and a downward-spiralling economy.”
—Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

Location: Doctorow Center for the Arts, 7971 Main Street, Village of Hunter

As the national election approaches, Enrico Oliveri has plummeted in the polls and his supporters and adversaries alike begin to acknowledge his impending downfall. Unwilling to face failure, Oliveri vanishes into the night. In a desperate move, his right hand man seeks out Oliveri’s twin brother, Giovanni Ernani, a prolific author and philosopher who is newly released from an insane asylum. Slowly and steadily, Giovanni insinuates himself into his brother’s public persona, impersonating Oliveri’s every tick and mannerism exquisitely. Giovanni quickly surpasses his brother’s political prowess with an eerie talent for rallying the masses through fearless and heroic speeches. As the film shifts between the failure of the sincere intellectual and the heroics of a madman, he probes the driving forces behind our contemporary global political reality leaving behind a rich web of questions. In Italian with English subtitles.

“Blends political satire with gentle comedy, high concept with genuine warmth....  Well worth seeing for the performance, or more accurately, the performances of the estimable Toni Servillo, who plays twin brothers.”

In 2006, Matt Van Dyke, a timid 26-year-old, left home in Baltimore and set off on a self-described “crash course in manhood.” He bought a motorcycle and a video camera and began a three-year, 35,000-mile motorcycle trip through Northern Africa and the Middle East. While traveling, he struck up an unlikely friendship with a Libyan hippie, and when revolution broke out in Libya, Matt joined his friend in the fight against dictator Muammar Gaddafi. With a gun in one hand and a camera in the other, Matt fought in—and filmed—the war until he was captured by Gaddafi’s forces and held in solitary confinement for six months. Two-time Academy Award nominated documentary filmmaker Marshall Curry tells this harrowing and sometimes humorous story of a young man’s struggle for political revolution and personal transformation.

“A gripping non-fiction thriller. Riveting ... suspenseful ... an extraordinary and quietly disturbing film.”
—David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
