AFI Silver Virtual Screening Room – New This Week

When two women uncover a pattern of illegal sterilizations in women's prisons, they wage a near-impossible battle against the Dept. of Corrections. Filmed over seven years with extraordinary access and accounts from currently and formerly incarcerated people, Erika Cohn's documentary exposes modern-day eugenics and reproductive injustice in California prisons.

Rubika Shah's documentary depicts a moment in history when music changed the world. In late-'70s Britain, as punk was exploding in popularity, like-minded bands came together to form Rock Against Racism. The organization spread virally across the UK and into Europe, becoming a grassroots youth movement, as an entire generation challenged the status quo. Courtesy of Film Movement.

Mathieu Kassovitz took the film world by storm with this gritty look at racial and cultural volatility in 1990s France. In dead-end suburbia, a Jew, an African and an Arab (Vincent Cassel, Hubert Koundé and Saïd Taghmaoui) give human faces to France's immigrant populations, their resentment at their marginalization slowly simmering until it reaches a boiling point.

Pietro Marcello transposes Jack London's 1909 American novel about a rugged, radical individual – seaman-turned-novelist Martin Eden – to a Neapolitan port city in the late 20th century. The working-class sailor strives to rise above his circumstances and join the literary elite, inspired by his obsession with Elena, his bourgeois dream woman. Courtesy of Kino Lorber.
Co-presented with the Embassy of Sweden as part of Films Across Borders: Stories of Resilience & Hope
Though housing prices are skyrocketing in cities around the world, incomes are not. The escalating crisis in our increasingly unlivable cities has an effect on us all. Fredrik Gertten's timely and urgently relevant documentary is a searing study of the global housing crisis and its implications on a local level. Courtesy of Argot Pictures.
This explosive documentary is an in-depth look at the U.S. government's failed response to the COVID-19 outbreak. With damning testimony from public health officials and hard investigative reporting, filmmaker Alex Gibney (ENRON: THE SMARTEST GUYS IN THE ROOM) exposes a system-wide collapse caused by a profound dereliction of leadership.
