THE BIG BAD FOX AND OTHER TALES
6 p.m. at Pathways Gathering Space | All ages    83 mins

From the creators of the Oscar-nominated Ernest & Celestine comes another hilarious, heartwarming tale of animal misfits: a fox who mothers a brood of chicks, a rabbit who plays a baby-delivering stork, and a duck who wants to be Santa Claus. This film has the pacing and spontaneity of Looney Tunes shorts, but underneath the gags (and there are plenty) it offers a sensitive portrayal of family and the anxieties of modern life.

YOU & ME
1 p.m. at Pathways Gathering Space
90 MINS
Discussion to follow (via Skype) with director Alexander Baack and writer and actor Hillary Baack

Ella (Hillary Baack) is deaf, but that is hardly the most interesting thing about her. She’s published a collection of short stories and she’s also a literature professor. Having just moved to L.A., she’s too busy for a husband, or even a boyfriend. But then she meets Tony (Paul Guyet), a recently-blinded man. Charming and funny, this is one of the first films to star disabled actors in both leading roles. Sally Struthers also turns in an amazing performance as Tony’s mom. Tickets & Info

WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT
7 p.m. at Pathways Gathering Space

An actor enters the stage, having never seen the script. That classic anxiety dream is the conceit of this internationally acclaimed play by Nassim Soleimanpour. With no rehearsal, no director, a new actor for every performance, and a script waiting in a sealed envelope on stage, this audacious theatrical experiment is a reminder of the transformative power of theater. Since its premiere it has been performed by John Hurt, Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Lane, and F. Murray Abraham. What MVFF guest will be next? Claim Free Tickets

BETHANY HAMILTON: UNSTOPPABLE

Born into a family of surfers in Kauai, Bethany Hamilton began surfing competitively at eight years old. In 2003, at age 13, she was attacked by a 15-foot tiger shark, resulting in the loss of her left arm. But not only did she survive—she was back on the circuit just a year later. Now a mother, Hamilton undertakes her greatest challenge: chasing a toddler, and the biggest wave of her career. A tale of bravery, perseverance, athleticism, and hope, this film gives new meaning to the expression “surf like a girl.” Tickets & Info

THE HUMAN ELEMENT
11:30 a.m. at Pathways Gathering Space  76 MINS

The planet is in crisis, and scientists agree that humans are to blame. In Chasing Ice (MVFF 2012), James Balog transfixed us with his time-lapse photography of melting glaciers in the Arctic. This stunning new film finds him closer to home, capturing the lives of Americans on the frontlines of climate change: coastal communities threatened by the rising sea, children suffering from air pollution, firefighters up against record-setting infernos, and coal miners tunneling out of a dying industry.

SEA OF SHADOWS

The world’s smallest and most elusive whale, the vaquita porpoise, is only found in Mexico’s Sea of Cortez, a place of extraordinary biodiversity. Today, that sea is a death trap because of commercial development and overfishing, but a number of brave souls are fighting for its protection—from drug cartels and the Chinese mafia, no less. This eco-thriller, a winner at the most recent Sundance Film Festival, ventures into the front line of efforts to save the planet’s most endangered sea mammal.
