An idealistic FBI agent (Emily Blunt) is assigned to work a dangerous stretch of the US-Mexico border by her superior officer (Josh Brolin). She's exposed to the brutality of the Mexican drug cartel, and becomes partners with a defector from the cartel (Benicio Del Toro) who possesses keen knowledge about the organization. As she gets deeper into the ruthlessness and corruption surrounding the FBI sting to find the organizations leaders, her moral and professional boundaries are pushed to their breaking point. Rated R.

After moving to New York City from rural Maine, filmmaker Ian Cheney asks a simple question, "Do we need the stars?" Blending a humorous tone with cutting-edge science and poetic footage of the night sky, Cheney unravels the myriad implications of a globe glittering with lights--including increased breast cancer rates, disrupted ecosystems, and a generation of kids without a glimpse of the universe above. ... This film is the definitive story of earth's disappearing night sky.
Film introduced and discussion moderated by Scott Gray & Sonya Wulff.
