June's releases include: 

Husbands (1970) - The trailblazing independent auteur John Cassavetes (Opening Night) pushes his raw, uncompromising emotional realism to its limit in this unflinching portrait of masculinity in crisis.

Scorsese Shorts (1963 - 1978) - A compilation of five early short films by Martin Scorsese, that offer a fascinating window onto his artistic development. Spanning the years from Scorsese’s time at NYU in the mid-1960s to the late ’70s, when he was emerging as one of the era’s most electrifying talents.

Dance, Girl, Dance (1940) - Dorothy Arzner, the sole woman to work as a director in the Hollywood studio system of the 1930s and early ’40s, brings a subversive feminist sensibility to this juicily entertaining backstage melodrama. A behind-the footlights look at friendship, jealousy, and ambition in the ruthless world of show business.
