Synopsis (Amazon Studios)
Nominated for "Best International Film" at this year's Academy Awards, this French film is only slated to play for one week at THE NEON...so hurry down. "Inspired by the 2005 riots in Paris, LES MISÉRABLES – directed by Ladj Ly – follows Stéphane (Damien Bonnard), a recent transplant to the impoverished suburb of Montfermeil, as he joins the local anti-crime squad. Working alongside his unscrupulous colleagues Chris (Alexis Manenti) and Gwada (Djebril Zonga), Stéphane struggles to maintain order amidst the mounting tensions between local gangs. When an arrest turns unexpectedly violent, the three officers must reckon with the aftermath and keep the neighborhood from spiraling out of control." THIS FILM IS SUBTITLED.

Synopsis (Neon Rated)
RETURN ENGAGEMENT! One of the most awarded films of the year is still at "99% Fresh" on rottentomatoes. This film is hard to describe. It is full of social commentary, and it can't be pinned down to one genre. "Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide 'indispensable' luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims' newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. By turns darkly hilarious and heart-wrenching, PARASITE showcases a modern master at the top of his game." (taken from Neon Rated) From Bong Joon Ho - director of THE HOST, MOTHER and SNOWPIERCER. THIS FILM IS SUBTITLED.

AMERICAN HERETICS

Synopsis (Harmony Creek Church)
"AMERICAN HERETICS: THE POLITICS OF THE GOSPEL will be shown at 3:00 pm on Sunday, March 15, 2020. The film is sponsored by Harmony Creek Church, a progressive Christian community in Kettering, Ohio. The film seeks to provoke a deeper understanding — both theologically and practically — of an enlivened faith that seeks to create a world that is good news for everybody, especially poor, the oppressed and the marginalized. This documentary film takes audiences into the buckle of Bible belt where a group of defiant ministers, congregations, and community leaders are challenging deeply rooted fundamentalist Christian doctrine in favor of a Gospel of Inclusion. Labeled as "heretics" for their beliefs and actions, they refuse to wield their faith as a sword sharpened by literal interpretations of the Bible. Especially those fundamentalist Christian interpretations that continue to justify nationalism and hack away at landmark civil rights protections for women, minorities, immigrants, and the LGBTQ communities. This poignant story challenges what we think we know about the Christian heartland by offering a rare personal glimpse into the contentious and often misunderstood history of religion, race, and politics in America. These Heretics are still interested in saving you from hell, but it is the earthly one, where poverty, discrimination and nationalism oppresses '...those who are the least among us.' The film event will be followed by a 30-minute panel discussion and Q and A session with several local justice activists." Tickets are $10 in advance and $13 on the day of the screening, and they can be purchased by clicking the "official website" link above.
