Polina
Polina (Danser sa vie)

(NR) 1 Hr. 56 Min. In French with English subtitles (Art House & International, Drama)

In this thrilling coming-of-age story, a rigorously trained and talented young dancer is determined to find her voice in a cutthroat world.  Polina (played by Anastasia Shevtsova, a professional dancer who has performed with Saint Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre) is a promising classical ballet dancer about to join the prestigious Bolshoi Ballet when she discovers contemporary dance, a revelation that throws everything into question on a profound level. Diverting from her plan, she leaves all her exacting preparation behind and moves to France to work with famous choreographer Liria Elsaj (played by French Academy Award-winner Juliette Binoche who has danced with London-based dancer/choreographer Akram Khan). But once there she is quickly forced to grapple with the realization that determination and hard work don't always lead to success.

Trip to Spain

(NR) 1 Hr. 55 Min. (Digital) In English (Art House & International, Comedy)

Fri. 9/8 - Thurs. 9/21

After jaunts through northern England and Italy, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon embark on another deliciously deadpan culinary road trip. This time around, the guys head to Spain to sample the best of the country's gastronomic offerings in between rounds of their hilariously off-the-cuff banter. Over plates of pintxos and paella, the pair exchange barbs and their patented celebrity impressions, as well as more serious reflections on what it means to settle into middle age. As always, the localesare breathtaking, the cuisine to die for, and the humor delightfully devilish.

Rooted in Peace

Thurs. Sept. 21

(NR) 1 Hr. 37 Min. (Digital) In English (Documentary)

Sundance Film Festival alum and award-winning director Greg Reitman’s new film ~ Rooted In Peace ~ is being shown at The State on Sept. 21, in honor of the International Day of Peace.  Through interviews with some of the world’s most intriguing thought leaders, Rooted In Peace challenges viewers to examine their values as Americans and human beings. Today we are at war within ourselves, with our environment, and with the world. Reitman takes us on film journey that encourages us to take notice, stop the cycle of violence, and proactively seek ways to find personal and geopolitical balance. Relying on memoir but also interviews with such luminaries and activists as Deepak Chopra, music legends Donovan, Mike Love and Pete Seeger, film director David Lynch, Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire, Ted Turner, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, neuroscientist Dan Seigel and many others, Reitman heeds former guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's words: "If the forest is to be green, every tree must be green, if there's going to be Peace on earth then everybody must need to feel that quality of Peace."
