Sag Harbor Cinema (SHC) @ Home will drop three new virtual offerings on Friday, May 15.

The newly added films will include Lee Grant's Down and Out in America (USA 1986; 57 minutes in English), Jean-Luc Godard's Band of Outsiders (France 1964; 95 minutes in French with English subtitles), and César Díaz's Our Mothers (Belgium/Guatemala 2019; 78 minutes in Spanish with English subtitles).

"Anna Karina's recent passing gives further relevance to the opportunity of screening Band of Outsiders, one of my favorite collaborations between Godard and the great muse of the French New Wave," explained SHC Artistic Director Giulia D'Agnolo Vallan. "I am also very excited to bring to our audiences the first of a series of Lee Grant's documentaries, and a film that speaks loudly to our present. Last but not least, a new and very strong voice from Latin America's cinema. As always with a program, I'd like to touch on different notes."

Down and Out in America explores the mid-1980s recession, following Minnesota farm workers, unemployed urban workers, as well as newly homeless in Los Angeles and New York. "These people were riding high on the American dream. They had homes and jobs and hopes for the future. Suddenly the bottom is dropped out of their world, and they are down and out in America," Grant noted about the documentary, which earned the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

Band of Outsiders was adapted from Dolores Hitchens' 1958 Fool's Gold. The film follows Franz and Arthur (Sami Frey and Claude Brasseur), two petty criminals that are fond of reciting lines from Hollywood classics. The two crooks rope in the stunning Odile (Anna Karina) to assist them with a heist.

Our Mothers follows a young forensic anthropologist looking for his father, a guerrilla fighter that disappeared in the 1980s. The film was awarded the Camera D'or at the 72nd Cannes Film Festival. "You can't look away or stop listening," Cinemania noted about Our Mothers.

Additionally, Spike Lee's Crooklyn (1994) was selected as Sag Harbor Cinema's Movie of the Week. "A lesser known but stunning film with an almost entirely 70s soundtrack, Crooklyn is a wild ride and a must-see summer escape," the Cinema notes.
