CAROL Based on the romance novel The Prince of Salt by Phyllis Nagy, Therese (Rooney Mara), a young saleswoman in the 50s in New York City meets Carol (Cate Blanchett), an older woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage. While their connection deepens and they become emotionally connected, Carol finds the strength to leave her husband (Kyle Chandler). Unfortunately, her husband begins to question her competence as a mother when he realizes that Carol´s relationships with her best friends are more than friendships. Directed by: Todd Haynes.
STRIKE A POSE In 1990, 7 dancers, 6 gays and 1 heterosexual joined Madonna for her most controversial tour: Blonde ambition. On the stage and in the iconic film Truth or Dare they showed the world what it means to express yourself. Madonna used the documentary to defend gay rights, freedom of expression and the fight against AIDS. 25 years later, they revealed the truth about their lives during and after the tour. Strike a Pose is a dramatic story about overcoming embarrassment and having the bravery to know who you are. Directed by: Ester Gould and Reijer Zwaan.
MAPPLETHORPE: Look at the Pictures Is the first, definitive, portrait of the controversial American photographer Mapplethorpe since his death from AIDS in 1989. The only thing more shocking than Mapplethorpe´s work is his life. The intimate revelations from his family, his friends and his lovers is only surpassed by Mapplethorpe´s frankness, revealed in a series of rediscovered, never heard before interviews, brought to light for the first time. This is the unique portrait of an artist who converted photography into a contemporary art with a daring vision that started a cultural war that continues today. . Directed by: Fenton Bailey y Randy Barbato.
