Movie of the month: Demain (Tomorrow) - documentary

Faced with a sense of powerlessness in the face of growing evidence of a coming mass human extinction, Melanie Laurent (Inglorious Bastards) and activist Cyril Dion travel to ten countries where grassroots pioneers are reinventing their economies and democracies. From Detroit, where urban farms have transformed a dying city, to Copenhagen, where nearly 70% of the energy is renewable, to Kuttambakkan in India, where participative democracy allows different castes to work together, and to other communities around the world.

Movie of the month: La Môme

A swirling, impressionistic portrait of one of France's immortal icons, showing her rise from the brothels of Paris to the dazzling limelight of New York's most famous concert halls. Although her charisma and extraordinary voice opened many doors for her, Piaf also faced great personal loss and drug addiction, all of which she funneled into her vocalizations to dazzle audiences in the process. Starring Marion Cotillard
