August 27: The Pearl Button * (Chile/France/Spain, 82 min., 2015, rated PG). The ocean contains the history of all humanity. The sea holds the voices of the Earth and those that come from outer space. Water receives impetus from the stars and transmits it to living creatures. Water, the longest border in Chile, also holds the secret of a mysterious button that was discovered in its seabed. Chile's coastline presents a supernatural landscape of volcanoes, mountains and glaciers. In it are the voices of the Patagonian indigenous people, of the first English sailors and also those of its political prisoners. Chilean documentarian Patricio Guzman delivers a stunning continuation of his exploration of the effects of Augusto Pinochet's ruthless dictatorship.

September 10: Moonlight (US, 111 min., 2016, rated R) Directed by Barry Jenkins, this drama charts the life of a black gay youth named Chiron as he grows up in a rough neighborhood in Miami. In the first segment, Chiron is a ten-year-old nicknamed "Little" who is taken in by a kindhearted Cuban drug dealer and his girlfriend. In the middle installment, a teenage Chiron explores his sexuality as he falls in love with a close friend. The final chapter follows Chiron in his twenties as he reconnects with faces from his past. Moonlight won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2017.

September 24: The Light Between Oceans (UK/New Zealand., 133 min., 2016, rated PG-13). A war weary man takes a job as a lighthouse keeper on an island for the solitude. He meets a beautiful young woman and they eventually marry. One day they see a small dingy with an infant and man inside floating in the ocean. They rush to rescue them only to find the man is dead. They struggle over the decision to report it and whether to keep the baby. It's only years later that they discover that the child still has a mother looking for her. "The Light Between Oceans" is a heart-breaking drama about fate, love, moral dilemmas and the lengths to which one couple will go to see their dreams realized.

October 1: Maudie (Canada/Ireland, 115 min., 2016, rated PG-13) Based on a true story, an unlikely romance develops between the reclusive Everett Lewis and a fragile, yet determined, woman named Maudie who he hires to be his housekeeper. Maudie, bright-eyed but hunched with crippled hands, yearns to be independent, to live away from her protective family and also yearns, passionately, to create art. MAUDIE charts Everett's efforts to protect himself from being hurt, Maudie's deep and abiding love for this difficult man and her surprising rise to fame as a folk painter.
