Herzog and a silent classic highlight Cultivate Cinema’s spring season

The bold, ambitious local screening series that is Cultivate Cinema Circle will celebrate its first birthday in June. As that anniversary draws near, the film series is ready to unleash a spring season full of highlights, including Werner Herzog’s latest documentary, “Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World,” and Dziga Vertov’s silent stunner “Man with a Movie Camera.”

The spring lineup starts  with the documentary “A Film About a Coffee,” Brandon Loper’s unique look at specialty coffee, at 1 p.m. April 16 in Central Library’s Mason O. Damon Auditorium. It is free. Following the movie, there will be a post-screening "coffee cupping" at Public Espresso (Hotel @ Lafayette, 391 Washington St.).

“Lo and Behold” is described by Magnolia Pictures as a “playful yet chilling examination of our rapidly interconnecting online lives.” The newest film from the director of “Grizzly Man” makes its Buffalo premiere at 7 p.m. June 13 at the North Park Theatre (1428 Hertel Ave.). Admission is $9.50.

“Man With a Movie Camera,” Vertov’s essential experimental film, screens at 1 p.m. May 21 at the Mason O. Damon Auditorium at Buffalo Central Library (1 Lafayette Square). It is free.

Also in the series:

  • Mark Cousins’ “I Am Belfast” at 9:30 p.m. April 28 at the North Park; $9.50 at the door.
  • Jenni Olson’s “The Royal Road” at 7 p.m. May 26 at Dreamland Studio & Gallery (387 Franklin St.); free but $5 donation suggested.
  • Cousins’ “Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise” at 8 p.m. June 8 at Burning Books (420 Connecticut St.); free.
  • Jan Ole Gerster’s “A Coffee In Berlin” at 1 p.m. June 25 at the Central Library’s Mason O. Damon Auditorium; free.

Be sure to keep checking for updates on an additional Cultivate screening, Jacques Demy’s “The Young Girls of Rochefort.” Demy’s stunning follow-up to “The Umbrellas of Cherbourg” is scheduled for a to-be-determined date at the North Park.
