Strand streaming new release films

Wed, 01/06/2021 - 12:00pm

The Strand Theatre continues to present new release films to stream from their website. Three of the films available throughout January are “The Weasel’s Tale,”  “The Reason I Jump,” and “Kill It” and “Leave This Town.

In “The Weasel’s Tale,” a beautiful actress from cinema’s golden age, an actor in the twilight of his life, a frustrated scriptwriter, and an old director will do the impossible to try and preserve the world they have created in an old mansion, faced with the threat of a young couple who could put everything in danger.

“The Reason I Jump,” based on the best-selling book by Naoki Higashida, is an immersive cinematic exploration of neurodiversity through the experiences of non-speaking autistic people from around the world. The film blends Higashida’s revelatory insights into autism, written when he was just 13, with intimate portraits of five remarkable young people. It opens a window for audiences into an intense and overwhelming, but often joyful, sensory universe. This film be be available starting Jan. 8.

“Kill It” and “Leave This Town” is an animated film from acclaimed Polish artist Mariusz Wilczynski. This surrealistic, fierce, and raw vision of his childhood hometown of Lodz, where reality and fantasy collide, is a meditation on aging, mortality and loss. Additional films to stream during January are “Coup 53,”  “Zappa,” and “Collective.”
