Cape of Good Hope
- 107 min
A profoundly optimistic film that arrives on the tenth anniversary of the end of Apartheid, "Cape of Good Hope" is, in the words of writer-director Mark Bamford, "a movie about people just trying to live. It's not about black and white, it's not about politics, but about human beings."
In the tradition of such rich, multi-layered, difficult-to-categorize films as Ang Lee's "Eat, Drink, Man, Woman," Mira Nair's "Monsoon Wedding," and Robert Altman and John Sayles's sociological slice-of-life pictures, "Cape of Good Hope" beautifully interweaves a number of storylines, all revolving around a Cape Town animal rescue shelter. The new South Africa is revealed in "Cape of Good Hope," a colorful and vibrant mosaic of love and hope.
The faces of Hope are: Jean Claude (Eriq Ebouaney of Raoul Peck's award-winning film, "Lumumba"), a refugee from war-torn Congo who finds himself torn between love and the promise of asylum in the West; Lindiwe (Nthati Moshesh), a single mother and housekeeper trying to make a life for herself and her son while finding a way out of the township once and for all; Sharifa (Quanita Adams) and Habib (David Isaacs), a young Muslim couple unable to have children of their own yet desperate to have a family; Morne (Morne Visser), a recently widowed vet who wants to believe that true love can strike twice; and Kate (Debbie Brown), the emotionally guarded founder of the animal shelter, who seems to relate better to stray dogs than to people.
"Cape of Good Hope" is the first feature film written and directed by Mark Bamford-award-winning director of the short film, "Hero"-along with his wife, co-writer and producing partner, Suzanne Kay. Themselves recent transplants to South Africa, the couple found inspiration for "Cape of Good Hope" through their experiences working as volunteers with children and refugees.

Christmas in the Clouds
- 96 min
Kate Montgomery's film is a lighthearted tale that features an almost entirely Native American cast, and a refreshing take on tribal culture. Ray (Tim Vahle), the overly conscientious manager of his tribe's new luxury resort, finds that an anonymous critic has booked a suite for the holidays.
Determined to get a good review, Ray has his work cut out for him. His chef (Graham Greene) doesn't want to cook meat, his loyal assistant (Sheila Tousey) is distracted by a particularly juicy romance novel, his handyman (Jonathan Joss) is busy flirting with the ski bunnies, his housekeeping staff has decided to turn the hotel into a daycare center and his father, a retired chief (Sam Valhos) just wants to win the Jeep Cherokee at the Christmas bingo. When a beautiful and mysterious young woman (Mariana Tosca) arrives from New York, she's mistaken for the critic, while the real one (M. Emmett Walsh) encounters one problem after the next.
