abt_poster_copyA Ballerina’s Tale pays tribute to the talent and tenacity of Misty Copeland, the African American ballerina who defied racial stereotyping to grand jete from corps de ballet into principal roles. Watchers of the Sky is filmmaker Edet Belzberg’s profile of international activist Raphael Lemkin, who defined ‘genocide’ and fought tirelessly to punish and prevent it worldwide. Beasts of No Nation is a harrowing tale of an African boy who’s forced to become a soldier. Room, Truth and Meadowland feature exceptional performances by Brie Larson, Cate Blanchett and Olivia Wilde, respectively. Momentum and Assassin boast badass female leading characters, played by Olga Kurylenko and Qi Shu, respectively. Crimson Peak casts Mia Wasikowska and Jessica Chastain in great Gothic spectacle.
