This Week at CCA

Weekly Update on What's Happening

This week at CCA (June 28 - July 4), we have three new films opening: Fancy Dance (playing exclusively at CCA), Music (also playing exclusively at CCA & for one week only) & Janet Planet.

Kicking it off, we have Fancy Dance, featuring Golden Globe Best Actress winner Lily Gladstone. Gladstone portrays Jax, a woman on a mission to find her missing sister while safeguarding her niece on an Oklahoma reservation. As they navigate the complexities of their world and fight against custody challenges, their journey becomes a poignant exploration of resilience and familial bonds.

Next on the lineup is Music, a stirring tale set against the tumultuous backdrop of the Greek mountains. Here for one week only, this film is a quietly colossal achievement from one of contemporary cinema's preeminent image makers. Freely inspired by the story of Oedipus, it is as terrifying as myth and as gentle as a folk song. For Tickets: Click here.

Rounding out this trio is Janet Planet, the film debut of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Annie Baker, who captures the nuanced passage of time and the subtle, heart-wrenching process of a daughter’s emotional shift away from her mother.

A Cinematic Masterpiece

Taken in by a family of farmers, Jon grows up without knowing his father or mother. Years later, after a tragic accident, he is sent to prison, where he meets Iro. The two form a connection, expressed through music, that will, by turns, haunt them and uphold them the rest of their days. Freely inspired by the story of Oedipus, Schanelec’s latest is as terrifying as myth and as gentle as a folk song.

“An immaculate work of cinema…exquisitely shot and unimpeachably assembled.”

-Nicolas Rapold, ArtForum

“The celebration of a vision Schanelec has meticulously honed over the past three decades, like a late sonata by a composer who has fully come into their voice.” -Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

A Must-See Exclusive

Since her sister’s disappearance, Jax (Lily Gladstone) has cared for her niece Roki (Isabel Deroy-Olson) by scraping by on the Seneca-Cayuga reservation in Oklahoma. Every spare minute goes into finding her missing sister while also helping Roki prepare for an upcoming powwow.

At the risk of Jax losing custody to Roki’s grandfather, Frank (Shea Whigham), the pair hit the road and scour the backcountry to track down Roki’s mother in time for the powwow. What begins as a search gradually turns into a far deeper investigation into the complexities and contradictions of Indigenous women moving through a colonized world while at the mercy of a failed justice system. Gladstone stars alongside Deroy-Olson, Ryan Begay, Crystle Lightning, with Audrey Wasilewski and Whigham.

Credit should also go to newcomer Deroy-Olson, who expertly walks the tightrope between naive innocence and pluckiness." -Amon Warmann, Empire

Experience the Magic of Janet Planet

In rural Western Massachusetts, 11-year-old Lacy spends the summer of 1991 at home, enthralled by her own imagination and the attention of her mother, Janet. As the months pass, three visitors enter their orbit, all captivated by Janet and her spellbinding nature. In her solitary moments, Lacy inhabits an inner world so extraordinarily detailed that it begins to seep into the outside world.

"Playwright Annie Baker lauches into orbit with her affecting debut." -Jesse Hassenger, Paste Magazine
