CSI is co-sponsoring two films during the festival.

A Classy Broad, Sunday, July 23, 1:35 pm, Castro Theatre

This delightful film documents the life of Marcia Nasatir, starting with her childhood as a Jewish girl in Texas and ending up in Hollywood where she broke through the glass ceiling to become the first female vice president of production at United Artists. Featuring clips from films such as Rocky and The Big Chill (which she helped bring to the screen) and interviews with Hollywood luminaries, A Classy Broad details a singular life.

Planetarium, Sunday, July 30, 5:30 pm, Castro Theatre

Paris, late 1930s. Two séance-conducting sisters from America (the luminous Natalie Portman and Lily-Rose Depp) meet a silver-haired French film producer who vows to capture their communions with the dead on his own cinematographic medium. This handsomely reptilian producer, who is based on the real-life illustrious filmmaker who was executed at Auschwitz, Bernard Natan, may be enchanted by the young and beautiful sisters, but he casts a darker, stronger spell on them.
