Nearing their 30-year anniversary in summer 2020, alternative rockers 311 - boasting a lineup of all five original members, 10 consecutive Top 10 albums and a hybrid groundbreaking musical-style - are heading for the big screen for one night only. The new ETSD3 documentary illustrates and solidifies the indelible relationship between 311 and their fans, as the film fuses together high-energy concert footage of hits and favorites (“Down,” “Beautiful Disaster,” “Come Original” and much more) with revealing off-stage moments, including exclusive interviews, behind-the-scenes clips and footage from the road, the studio and the musician’s homes.


HALE COUNTY THIS MORNING, THIS EVENING
2018, The Cinema Guild, 76 min, USA, Dir: RaMell Ross

Composed of intimate and unencumbered moments of people in a community, this Oscar-nominated documentary allows the viewer an emotive impression of the historic South - trumpeting the beauty of life and consequences of the social construction of race, while simultaneously a testament to dreaming against the odds. Through the lives of protagonists Daniel and Quincy, images weave together to create an inspired tapestry made up of time, the human soul, history, environmental wonder, sociology, and cosmic phenomena, offering a new way of seeing and experiencing the heat and the hearts of people in the Black Belt region of the U.S. and far beyond. “RaMell Ross's poetic portrait of life in a fabled corner of Alabama is a documentary of radiant images poised between desperation and joy. … and once you let yourself glide onto its wavelength, it’s got a cosmically becalmed addictive quality.” - Owen Gleiberman, Variety
