Dear AACC board and membership,

We would love to have you see this documentary about the St. Louis Nahed Chapman New American Academy, featuring five teenage students and their amazing teachers and principal. Day One Flyer above. It is part of the St. Louis International Film Festival. It will be Saturday night, 7pm on Nov. 3 at the Gathering (McCausland just off Manchester) . It is free, so you are welcome to bring friends and family. You can see on the flyer (Food Drive Flyer) that there will be a food collection for the refugee families at the school, if you care to bring a canned good or such.

Peter Tao (AACC Advisory member and Mosaic Steering Committee member and driver for producing this film) is an executive producer of the film.

Peter is asking people to join in sharing this story why St. Louis strives to be a welcoming community and the New American Academy is part of that full picture, you would really benefit from seeing the whole film. This past weekend Peter and his wife, Helen Lee, were at the film’s sold out showing at the Milwaukee film festival. Previously it premiered at the Newport Beach Festival. The film is nominated for an award in the STL festival. To watch the trailer, visit https://www.cinemastlouis.org/film-categories/spotlight-on-inspiration-documentary-competition

Opening Night – Destroyer (Dir. Karyn Kusama, 2018, 123 min.)

Directed by native St. Louisan Karyn Kusama (“Girlfight,” “The Invitation”) — who receives SLIFF’s Charles Guggenheim Cinema St. Louis Award — “Destroyer” follows the moral and existential odyssey of LAPD detective Erin Bell (Oscar® winner Nicole Kidman, who also stars in “Boy Erased” at this year’s fest). As a young cop, Erin was placed undercover with a gang in the California desert with tragic results. When Silas (Toby Kebbell), the darkly charismatic leader of the gang, re-emerges many years later, she must work her way back through the remaining members to finally reckon with the demons that destroyed her past. The film also stars Tatiana Maslany, Bradley Whitford, and Sebastian Stan. Vogue writes: “There are scads of movies about crazy-ass, kick-ass, out-of-control male heroes, but very few about women, in part because audiences tend to be put off by behavior in a female star that they would adore in a De Niro or Nic Cage. Kidman and Kusama don’t care. … Astonishingly intense and immersive, Kidman achieves here what Charlize Theron accomplished in ‘Monster’ — she remakes herself as a nightmare, which is another way of saying that any talk of Best Actress prizes has to reckon with her.”

With director Kusama, SLIFF Charles Guggenheim Cinema St. Louis honoree, and co-screenwriter Phil Hay.
