The first full evening of The Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival presents the following films.  Please note location of each showing as these may vary.

Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World
5:00 p.m. at the Chilmark Community Center, 520 South Road, Chilmark
We depend on the internet for nearly everything but rarely do we step back and recognize its endless intricacies and unsettling omnipotence. From the brilliant mind of German film director Werner Herzog comes this playful yet chilling examination of our rapidly interconnecting online lives. Tickets & Info

Resilience 
6:45 p.m. at the Chilmark School, 8 State Road, Chilmark
Discussion to follow with Don Berwick, former Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services **FREE for educators**
In 1998, Drs. Robert Anda and Vincent Felitti published a study showing that traumatic stress experienced in childhood (especially sexual, emotional, or physical abuse but also parental neglect) usually leads to a whole host of illnesses and self-destructive behaviors later in life. Tickets & Info

The Wolfpack
7:00 p.m. at the Chilmark Community Center, 520 South Road, Chilmark
Discussion to follow with film subjects Susanne Reisenbichler and Govinda, Mukunda, Narayana, and Eddie Angulo
Locked away from society, in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the six Angulo brothers’ only means of learning about the outside world is through the movies they watch. This has been their world for years—but when one of the brothers escapes, everything changes. Tickets & Info

Dheepan
8:45 p.m. at the Chilmark School, 8 State Road, Chilmark
Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, Dheepan follows a Sri Lankan man who flees civil war, taking two strangers, a woman and an orphaned girl, with him. After moving from one temporary home to the next, they settle in a housing block in the suburbs of Paris. Audiard (Oscar-nominated director of A Prophet) takes us on a searing and suspenseful ride into the heart of the refugee experience. Tickets & Info

Morris from America
9:15 p.m. at the Chilmark Community Center, 520 South Road, Chilmark
Taking home two awards at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, this heartwarming coming-of-age comedy follows Morris, a slightly overweight 13-year-old, and his single father, Curtis (Craig Robinson of The Office). Their relationship takes Morris on a journey of self-discovery that ultimately brings him back to his father. Tickets & Info
