TUESDAY OCTOBER 23 SPECIAL EVENT

SFFILM Presents
SPECIAL SCREENING: ROMA 7:00

Lead actors Yalitza Aparicio and Marina de Tavira are expected to attend.
The most personal project to date from Academy Award-winning director and writer Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity, Children of Men, Y tu mamá también), ROMA follows Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio), a young domestic worker for a family in the middle-class neighborhood of Roma in Mexico City. Delivering an artful love letter to the women who raised him, Cuarón draws on his own childhood to create a vivid and emotional portrait of domestic strife and social hierarchy amidst political turmoil of the 1970s. Cuarón's first project since the groundbreaking Gravity in 2013, ROMA will be available in theaters and on Netflix later this year. (135 min)

THURSDAY NOVEMBER 1 SPECIAL EVENT

SFFILM Presents
THEY'LL LOVE ME WHEN I'M DEAD 7:00

Morgan Neville, who charmed SFFILM Festival audiences this spring with his look at Mr. Rogers and his neighborhood, now playfully takes on the story of Orson Welles's last production, The Other Side of the Wind, a semi-mythological cinematic experiment, posthumously completed and receiving its first public release this year. Neville eschews scholars and critics and lets those who knew and worked with the mercurial filmmaker tell the story of "the greatest movie never released." The result is as lively and inventive as the work of the master it reveals. (98 min)

"What's great about They'll Love Me When I'm Dead is that it's got virtually everybody who had anything important to do with Other Side of the Wind under one roof, from the stars to the loyal Welles-worshipping youngsters to the literal hangers-on who rode dangerously on the backs of speeding cars to get shots." —Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter

SUNDAY NOVEMBER 4 SPECIAL EVENT

SFFILM Presents
CLOSING NIGHT: 5B 7:30

World Premiere In the mid-1980s, a simple number and letter designated a ward on the fifth floor of San Francisco General Hospital, the first in the country designed specifically to deal with AIDS patients. The nurses' emphasis on humanity and consideration of holistic well-being was a small miracle in the midst of a devastating crisis and the ensuing panic about risk and infection. The story of 5B is stirringly told through first-person testimony of patients, their loved ones, and hospital staff who volunteered to work on the ward, resulting in a bittersweet and moving monument to a moment in San Francisco history and a celebration of quiet heroes worthy of remembrance and renewed recognition. (93 min)

"Here on Ward 5B, a group of caregivers gathered to confront a new epidemic: AIDS. They created a haven of acceptance and compassion at a time when others called for isolation and rejection. They saw fellow human beings where others saw only contagion and disease. With the volunteer participation of a generous, loving community, they developed an internationally renowned center of excellence committed to quality of care for the living and the dying." —San Francisco General Hospital commemorative plaque
