.ZACK: Ask for Jane

Based on a true story — and set less than 50 years ago, in 1969 Chicago — “Ask for Jane” might seem hard to believe for those who have grown up in the U.S. after Roe v. Wade. But in the world of “Ask for Jane,” abortion is punishable by prison, and getting birth control is nearly impossible. As a result, women die every day from taking matters into their own hands. When a pregnant student at the University of Chicago attempts to take her own life, Rose (Cait Cortelyou) and Janice (Cody Horn) find a doctor willing to perform the procedure in secret to save the woman’s life. Sparked by this experience, Rose and Janice form the Jane Collective: a secret organization to help other women obtain safe and illegal abortions.

.ZACK: The Blues Doctors Performance with Satan & Adam

“Satan & Adam” is a celebration of the transformative power of music and the bonds that develop when worlds collide and artists collaborate. One day in 1986, Adam Gussow, a white, Ivy League-educated harmonica player, found himself nursing a broken heart and walking down the street in Harlem, a block from the Apollo Theater. There, he came on a one-man band: Sterling Magee. Better known as Satan, Magee was a local legend with heavy blues guitar riffs and makeshift percussion instruments. When Adam sat in on a session with Satan that day, a most unlikely connection was formed, and their partnership and friendship would transcend the racial tensions of a segregated city. Gussow went on to establish himself as a world-class harmonica player, a professor of literature at the University of Mississippi, and the author of such books as “Beyond the Crossroads: The Devil and the Blues Tradition.”

.ZACK: Bisbee '17

Radically combining documentary and genre elements, the film follows several members of the close-knit community as they collaborate with the filmmakers to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Bisbee Deportation, where 1,200 immigrant miners were violently taken from their homes by a deputized force, shipped to the desert on cattle cars, and left to die. As the anniversary of Bisbee’s darkest day approaches, locals dress as characters on both sides of the still-polarizing event, staging dramatic re-creations of scenes — including a musical number — from the escalating miners’ strike that led to the Deportation.

.ZACK: Guggenheim CSL Award & Drunkard's Lament

St. Louis native Jim Finn — whose “The Drunkard’s Lament” screens at this year’s SLIFF — makes playful experimental films that have been variously described as “Utopian comedies” and “trompe l’oeil films.” The New York Times writes: “Steeped in the obsolete language of revolutionary art, Mr. Finn’s meticulous, deadpan mockumentaries often play like unearthed artifacts from an alternate universe.”
