A film by James Crump

72 minutes, documentary, color, English, 2015

DVD Extra: Troublemakers Director James Crump and Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles Director Philippe Vergne engage in a lively discussion at the historic Theatre at Ace Hotel in Downtown L.A.

Troublemakers unearths the birth of land art in the late 1960s and early 1970s when a cadre of renegade artists sought to transcend the limitations of painting and sculpture by producing earthworks on a monumental scale in the desolate desert landscape of the American southwest.

Today these works, which include Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty, Michael Heizer's Double Negative, and Walter De Maria's Lightning Field, continue to astound and amaze us for their breathtaking audacity.

Troublemakers takes its place among the great art documentaries of the past half-century.” - The Wall Street Journal

“A thrilling and revealing look at the creators and myths of land art...masterfully captures the why and how of these sacred terrestrial forms.” - Interview Magazine

Troublemakers has many pleasures to offer [and] shows how extraordinary land art can be.” - The Boston Globe

! These are works that are meant to be the next is quickly convinced that future generations will indeed head to the American desert like they do to the great churches of Europe.” - The Guardian

A film by Lucie Borleteau

97 minutes, fiction, color, French w/ English subtitles, 2015

Thirty-year-old Alice is a sailor about to embark on a journey she will not soon forget. Leaving her fiancé Félix ashore, she joins the crew of an old cargo ship, the Fidelio, as a mechanic. Once on board, Alice discovers that she is replacing a man who has just died and that Gaël, the first great love of her life, is the ship's captain.

Lulled by life aboard the ship and entranced by the limitless horizon of the wide open ocean, Alice succumbs to desire and begins an affair with Gaël. But she soon faces a difficult choice about what will make her truly happy: an unfettered life at sea, or grounded happiness at home?

Lucie Borleteau's provocative and sensuous directorial debut brings to the screen a powerful female protagonist in an almost exclusively male world, while Arianne Labed's fearless performance as Alice reveals a confident, independent woman fully in command of her own sexuality, grappling with conflicting desires.

“High passions on the high seas.” - The Hollywood Reporter

! Sensual...powerful.” - Time Out London

“Borleteau presents the intense sexual relationship graphically yet perceptively; this is that rare movie in which the characters' lovemaking actually reveals things about them. Borleteau is no less astute in depicting the work aboard an ocean freighter; the movie has as much to say about life in the globalized economy as it does about eroticism.” - Chicago Reader

“A fascinating portrait of a liberated female sailor who floats free of the conventional life. Ariane Labed puts in an astonishingly vivid performance as the globe-trotting seawoman. Very satisfying.” - Spirituality & Practice
