Several CMP member-supported films premiering in late May and early June!
Liz Garbus' series on the New York Times
THE FOURTH ESTATE
premieres on Showtime May 27th
A chief task for The Times, long considered the "newspaper of record," is to find the best way to accurately and honestly cover this unconventional president, even as he tries to undermine them.
Through extraordinary access and exclusive interviews, Oscar® nominated filmmaker Liz Garbus chronicles the tenacious men and women in the trenches who are fighting for the freedom of the press and America's right to know.
THE TALE - premieres on HBO Tonight!
A narrative rather than a documentary, THE TALE is produced by GameChanger Films, a film fund for Women Directors of which several members of CMP are also investors! Our very own Steve Cohen is an Co-Executive Producer. Starring Laura Dern, THE TALE tells the story of a young woman's experience with childhood sexual abuse.
“This zeitgeist has also said that there is restorative justice here,” Dern said. “There’s reward in being a witness to something and using your voice, sharing your experience when you see multitudes of people come forward. That has really changed the conversation, that there is therefore less fear — through a piece of art that you make — to all have conversations together and hopefully allow it to be the groundbreaking time we all so desperately need.”
CMP-funded and DOC10 favorite WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR premieres in select theaters June 8th!

Dystopia, Apocalypse, Culture War: 2018 or 1968?
"The upheaval of 50 years ago is hardly history at the movies — from zombies to concerns about male-dominated Hollywood, what happened continues to reverberate. In 1968, the world went up in flames, the auteur theory ignited debate, parental guidance at the movies was suggested, women in film were on the verge of a breakthrough, flesh-eating zombies hit the screen and American movies went to war (again). The world was watching, and the world was changing. Fifty years later, it can sometimes feel as if we are living in the sequel, or at least some kind of weird dystopian reboot."
