Enzian On Demand

This week, Enzian On Demand is offering four new indie movies to stream that would’ve normally had a run in their theaters.

While Enzian Theater in Maitland is currently closed due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, they have partnered with film distributors to bring you indie films on-demand that you can watch from the comfort of your own home.

A percentage of every on-demand purchase will go back to Enzian in an effort to help its nonprofit organization during this difficult time.

In addition to previous offerings Fantastic Fungi, The Times of Bill Cunningham, Best of CatVideoFest: Creature Comforts Edition, and Extra Ordinary, here are the new titles available for streaming purchase:

Beanpole

Ticket: $12
Through April 23, nearly 50% of purchase goes back to Enzian.

About the movie:
In post-WWII Leningrad, two women, Iya and Masha (astonishing newcomers Viktoria Miroshnichenko and Vasilisa Perelygina), intensely bonded after fighting side by side as anti-aircraft gunners, attempt to readjust to a haunted world.

As the film begins, Iya, long and slender and towering over everyone—hence the film’s title—works as a nurse in a shell-shocked hospital, presiding over traumatized soldiers. A shocking accident brings them closer and also seals their fates.

The 28-year-old Russian director Kantemir Balagov won Un Certain Regard’s Best Director prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival for this richly burnished, occasionally harrowing rendering of the persistent scars of war. Certified Fresh with 91% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands

Ticket: $12
Through April 23, nearly 50% of purchase goes back to Enzian.

About the movie:
Based on the novel by Jorge Amado, this Brazilian comedy follows the strange events that befall Doña Flor (Sonia Braga) after she is left a widow by the death of her wild, irresponsible husband. He died after another wanton night of carousing.

Attempting to marry more wisely the second time around, Doña Flor weds a stable, but boring, pharmacist who has no interest in sex. When she discovers that her new sex life is less than satisfying, Doña Flor is visited by the sexy ghost of her late husband.

When initially released, Dona Flor became the most successful film in Brazilian history. Its box office was only reached by a Brazilian production 35 years later by the 2010 blockbuster Elite Squad: The Enemy Within. Internationally, Dona Flor received nominations for a Golden Globe and a BAFTA Award.

Earth

Ticket: $12
Through April 23, nearly 50% of purchase goes back to Enzian.

About the movie:
EARTH was filmed at seven locations where humans are transforming the planet on a grand scale:

Entire mountains being moved in California, a tunnel being sliced through rock at the Brenner Pass, an open-cast mine in Hungary, the world-famous Carrara marble quarry in Italy, a copper mine in Spain, the salt mine used to store radioactive waste in Wolfenbüttel and a Northern Canadian tar sands site where the destruction of indigenous lands threatens local communities.

Director Nikolaus Geyrhalter contrasts these large scale projects with interviews with the individuals helping to realize them to highlight our fraught struggles for and against the planet.

Other Music

Ticket: $11.50
Through April 23, nearly 50% of purchase goes back to Enzian.

About the movie:
Other Music was an influential and uncompromising New York City record store that was vital to the city’s early 2000s indie music scene.

But when the store is forced to close its doors due to rent increases, the homogenization of urban culture, and the shift from CDs to downloadable and streaming music, a cultural landmark is lost.

Through vibrant storytelling, the documentary captures the record store’s vital role in the musical and cultural life of the city, and highlights the artists whose careers it helped launch including Vampire Weekend, Animal Collective, Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, William Basinski, Neutral Milk Hotel, Sharon Van Etten, Yo La Tengo and TV On The Radio.
