MOVIES

GOLD TOWN

“Blue is the Warmest Color” — Thursday-Sunday, Dec. 5-8. Note: this film is rated NC-17. Synopsis: Adele’s life is changed when she meets Emma, a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire, to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adele grows, seeks herself, loses herself, finds herself.

“Escape Fire” — Wednesday, Dec. 11. Synopsis: Presented by the League of Women Voters in a one-night Juneau showing, Escape Fire tackles one of the most pressing issues of our time: what can be done to save our broken medical system? Award-winning filmmakers Matthew Heineman and Susan Froemke follow dramatic human stories as well as leaders fighting to transform healthcare at the highest levels of medicine, industry, government, and even the US military. The film examines the powerful forces trying to maintain the status quo in an industry designed for quick fixes rather than prevention, for profit-driven care rather than patient-driven care. After decades of resistance, a movement to bring innovative high-touch, low-cost methods of prevention and healing into our high-tech, costly system is finally gaining ground. Escape Fire is about finding a way out. It’s about saving the health of a nation. There will be a panel discussion after the show.
