THE EAGLE HUNTRESS
"Aishol-pan, a 13-year-old girl, trains to become the first female in 12 generations of her Kazakh family to become an eagle hunter and rises to the pinnacle of a tradition that has been handed down from father to son for centuries. While there are many old Kazakh eagle hunters who vehemently reject the idea of any female taking part in their ancient tradition, Aisholpan's father, Nurgaiv, believes that a girl can do anything a boy can, as long as she's determined."

Synopsis (Lionsgate)
Certain to be a "Best Picture" contender, LA LA LAND is one of the best reviewed films of the year and is both visually and musically incredible - thus best to be seen on the big screen. With 100% reviews from Entertainment Weekly to The Wall Street Journal and Time (and dozens more), this is the must-see movie of the season. "Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Damien Chazelle, LA LA LAND tells the story of Mia (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams."

Synopsis (Press Notes)
"The Junior Leaguers Club of Dayton will sponsor its 6th annual fundraiser on Saturday, Feb. 18 at Noon. The screening is a special presentation of the recently remastered classic DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST - a Julie Dash film. The film is set in 1902 in the Gullah community. The West Africans were brought there as enslaved people, so the islanders developed a language and culture creolized from West Africa. This unique culture and language endured in the areas of the low country, such as the Carolinas and Georgia.The discussion will be moderated remotely by O, the lead actress from the film. Funds from this event will provide a recurring scholarship to a graduating senior from the Miami Valley. This year a silent auction will take place prior to the screening with items representing the culture. The tickets are $30.00 for adults which include movie, soda, glass of wine, and popcorn. The student tickets are $15.00 (excluding the wine). Tickets can now be purchased at THE NEON or by calling (937)219-7501 for tickets."

Synopsis (Press Notes)
"SURJ Greater Dayton (Showing Up for Racial Justice) is sponsoring a screening of CINCINNATI GODDAMN - a feature-length documentary about police brutality, anti-black racism, and the power of grassroots activism in Cincinnati, Ohio. From 1995-2001 there were fifteen black men killed by the Cincinnati police. The film focuses on two of those murders, Roger Owensby, Jr and Timothy Thomas. Martin Luther King said that 'A riot is the cry of the unheard.' Thomas's death sparked three days of civil unrest and protests. This poignant and powerful story of injustice is told through news reports, first-person accounts and cinema verite footage of the surviving families' long-suffering battle for justice. All proceeds will be donated to the local racial justice organization: Racial Justice Now! http://rjnohio.org/ . Tickets, available for a minimum donation of $10, are now available at THE NEON and by contacting surjgreaterdayton@gmail.com."
