Set in the late 1980s on an island off the coast of Maine, this dreamlike movie by local filmmaker Derek Kimball follows the last summer of Hannah Newcombe’s (Jane Ackermann) childhood. Raised in a church by the island’s insular priest, Hannah has led a sheltered life. She plans on attending a prestigious boarding school on the mainland at the summer’s end, but the sudden disappearance of a classmate, swallowed by the sea, leads her to reexamine her ambitions.

Just in time for Bike Night at the PMA, here comes a documentary about Giuseppe Marinoni, the champion cyclist who transitioned to master bike craftsman. Today, at age 75, and after nearly dying from the toxic fumes of his craft, he is attempting to break the world hour record for his age group—all on a bike he built by hand nearly 40 years ago.
