12th and Clairmount

NR | 75 min | DOCUMENTARY

Home movie footage donated by metro Detroiters provides the spine of “12th and Clairmount,” which looks back at the Detroit riot of 1967 — and its causes and aftermath. Those five days in July were among the most pivotal — and divisive — in the city's history, with the turmoil leaving 43 dead. While the impending 50th anniversary of the summer of '67 was the impetus for the film, the home movie footage in "12th and Clairmount" captures a wide spectrum of Detroit life, from proud streetscapes to dance parties to neighborhood sporting events. Drawing from more than 400 reels of donated home movies from the era, other unearthed footage and newly recorded oral histories, the documentary is being produced by the Free Press in collaboration with Bridge Magazine and WXYZ-TV (Channel 7) and a group of metro Detroit cultural institutions, led by the Detroit Institute of Arts.

24 Hour War

NR | 99 min | DOCUMENTARY

After months of intense negotiations, Enzo Ferrari said no – refusing to allow Ford to interfere with what he loved the most: racing. Henry Ford II was furious, and vowed to build a racecar that would dethrone Ferrari, leading to the development of the revolutionary GT40. "The 24 Hour War" blends current interviews and classic footage for a speed-filled look at the Ford-Ferrari battle at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the famed endurance race where Ferrari had reigned supreme for decades.

By the time of his arrest he was already a Detroit legend, frequently making front-page headlines and leading the local television news.

Les Contes d'Hoffmann

NR | 209 min | OPERA

By the time he came to tackle the composition of Les Contes d’Hoffmann, Offenbach’s opus already included more than a hundred operas. Left unfinished when he died during rehearsals in October 1880, his last work combines fantasy, gravity and humour in an unexpectedly innovative synthesis of opera buffa, romantic opera and grand opera. This adaptation of three tales by E.T.A. Hoffmann, with a sprinkling of Goethe’s Faust, portrays the German poet as both narrator and hero recounting his love affairs with Olympia, Antonia and Giuletta. Robert Carsen’s spectacular production highlights the melancholy genius of a man marked by life, with a coherence and dramatic sense remarkable for a work that leaves numerous questions unanswered. Under the baton of Philippe Jordan, Nadine Koutcher, Stéphanie d’Oustrac, Kate Aldrich, Yann Beuron and Ramón Vargas, in the title role, interpret the legendary airs of this work whose brilliant mystery will continue to dazzle opera houses for countless years to come.

Macbeth LICEU

NR | 152 min | OPERA

A tribute to the year Shakespeare with a spectacular and surrealistic scene direction Scotland. Macbeth hears how enigmatic witches prophesy that he will be king of Scotland. Upon meeting him, his wife prompts him to assassinate the current king to replace him. The witches' predictions push Macbeth to be bloodthirsty with friends and rivals, until only and furious is going to face the last battle, in which it ends up dying. Giuseppe Verdi felt devotion for the work of Shakespeare and this is the first opera in which it is based on a text of the bard. Verdi's enthusiasm can be summed up in his will to achieve "something extraordinary". In this version, stage director Christof Loy places the action in a timeless classic space with surrealistic touches and dominated by blacks and whites, of great dramatic intensity.

Le Songe d'une Nuit d'Été ONP

NR | 120 min | OPERA

Numerous choreographers have delved into Shakespeare to find dramatic material for their ballets, beginning with Jean-Georges Noverre, an ardent defender of the “action ballet” and Marius Petipa, who was the first to use Mendelssohn’s stage music. George Balanchine, who also loved the score, would prove no exception. In 1962 he created his version of Shakespeare’s comedy for New York City Ballet. Faithful to the Bard’s vocabulary whilst adding a subtle touch of pantomime, he portrays a complex love story in two acts and six scenes. Theseus, Duke of Athens, and Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, become caught up in a domestic quarrel between the king of the elves and the queen of the fairies which results in the intervention of the mischievous Puck and his magic potion along with a troupe of amateur actors. The denouement is celebrated in the form of a grand virtuoso entertainment. One of George Balanchine’s rare narrative ballets, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is entering the Paris Opera Ballet’s repertoire. The sets and costumes for this production have been designed by another magician of the stage, Christian Lacroix.

Così Fan Tutte ONP

NR | 208 min | OPERA

Prompted by Don Alfonso, a cynical old philosopher, two young idealists decide to put their lovers’ fidelity to the test. But love will teach them a bitter lesson: those who believe themselves phoenixes and goddesses will discover the desires of the flesh… In 1790, one year after the French Revolution, in what would be their final collaboration, Mozart and Da Ponte conduct a scientific investigation of love. The music of Così fan tutte is truly extraordinary – complex in its symmetry, jovial and yet infused with an almost sacred melancholia. An extraordinary score where each note seems intended to make us accept a loss – lost paradise, lost youth, or a lost loved-one – and portray a world where all is in a constant state of flux. This laboratory of eroticism could but inspire choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, who excels in revealing a work’s innermost geometry on stage. With six singers doubled by six dancers, she depicts the desire which unites and separates human beings, like the interactions between atoms that, once broken, make new bonds possible.

NR | 90 min | DOCUMENTARY

This double feature of two mid-length documentaries is the first return engagement for a sold-out screening at the 2016 Freep Film Festival. "Predator/Prey: The Fight for Isle Royale Wolves," directed by the Free Press' Brian Kaufman, explores how the fragile ecosystem of Isle Royale National Park is dominated by the predator-prey relationship between wolves and moose. With wolves dwindling and moose booming, the National Park Service must decide how to manage these iconic species in a time when climate change threatens to undermine both. "Fifty Lakes One Island" is the result of Chicago filmmaker George Desort spending 80 nights on the Lake Superior island. Traveling alone with his camera equipment and as much food as he could fit into his kayak, Desort explored the rugged terrain of Isle Royale, creating a film built on breathtaking footage and personal, unvarnished storytelling. "Predator/Prey": 2016. 37 min. Directed by Brian Kaufman. "Fifty Lakes One Island": 2013. Directed by George Desort.

Les Contes d'Hoffmann

NR | 209 min | OPERA

By the time he came to tackle the composition of Les Contes d’Hoffmann, Offenbach’s opus already included more than a hundred operas. Left unfinished when he died during rehearsals in October 1880, his last work combines fantasy, gravity and humour in an unexpectedly innovative synthesis of opera buffa, romantic opera and grand opera. This adaptation of three tales by E.T.A. Hoffmann, with a sprinkling of Goethe’s Faust, portrays the German poet as both narrator and hero recounting his love affairs with Olympia, Antonia and Giuletta. Robert Carsen’s spectacular production highlights the melancholy genius of a man marked by life, with a coherence and dramatic sense remarkable for a work that leaves numerous questions unanswered. Under the baton of Philippe Jordan, Nadine Koutcher, Stéphanie d’Oustrac, Kate Aldrich, Yann Beuron and Ramón Vargas, in the title role, interpret the legendary airs of this work whose brilliant mystery will continue to dazzle opera houses for countless years to come.
