Thor: Love and Thunder – Thor (Chris Hemsworth) finds himself on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest to find himself, now that his “superhero” days are over. His retreat is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman). Together with Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy, they embark on a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s revenge and stop him before it’s too late.

He has a stable relationship with his girlfriend Beth (Sarah Tollemache), but continues to have recurring nightmares. He decides to go visit his bigoted, homophobic family in rural Maine for their annual Fourth of July vacation to confront them and have them examine the roles they played in damaging his psyche.

Apples – As amnesia spreads from person to person on a pandemic-like scale, a middle-aged man named Aris (Aris Servetalis) boards the bus like any normal day, but suddenly forgets where he was going and who he is. He is then enrolled in a rehabilitation program, where every morning he listens to a tape that gives him homework. As he completes each task, he takes a Polaroid photo to keep in a scrapbook. When he meets fellow amnesiac Anna (Sofia Georgovasili), the two form a bond. Play in select cities. Click here for timetables.
Dreaming Walls: Inside the Chelsea Hotel – The legendary Chelsea Hotel, an icon of the 1960s counterculture and home to famous artists and intellectuals such as Patti Smith, Janis Joplin and the superstars of Warhol’s Factory, is currently being renovated. Soon it will reopen to the public as one of New York’s hottest luxury hotels. Dozens of longtime residents, most in their senior years, have lived amid scaffolding and constant construction for nearly a decade. In this chaotic context, dream walls takes us through the historic corridors of the hotel. Play in Toronto. Click here for timetables.
