High Maintenance: Season 4 – Available on Digital April 4th
The fourth season of High Maintenance finds The Guy (Ben Sinclair) back traversing the city on his bicycle, having said goodbye to last season’s RV. With a new friend by his side, The Guy drops in on a variety of customers whose disparate lives, jobs, identities and circumstances reveal the human connection that we all seek. Playing out over the course of a year, this season focuses on cycles of renewal, webs of human connections, and putting down roots in the ever-changing ecosystem of New York City.
Liberty: Mother of Exiles – Available on Digital April 14th
Over 4 million people visit the Statue of Liberty annually. The most photographed statue in the world, its meaning is universal and represents freedom, hope and protest to generations of people throughout the world. Liberty: Mother of Exiles casts a new light on one of America’s most familiar symbols, revealing its little-known history and surprising challenges, and celebrating it as an enduring beacon of hope for generations of immigrants. Produced and directed by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato (HBO’s Emmy®-nominated Mapplethorpe: Look at the Pictures and Carrie Fisher: Wishful Drinking), the documentary begins with the groundbreaking ceremony for a new state-of-the-art facility at the base of the Statue of Liberty, and goes on to reveal the statue’s unexpected history – a story filled with many false starts as well as significant financial and technical challenges that were ultimately solved in innovative ways. The film also follows legendary designer and “godmother” to the statue, Diane von Furstenberg, in her quest to discover how sculptor Auguste Bartholdi’s dream became a reality and what the statue has meant to generations of people from around the world.
Strike Back: Season 7 – Available on Digital April 18th
Final season of the hit Cinemax series finds the Section 20 team facing off against corrupt governments, a vengeful crime family and a pair of jihadist brothers as they hunt down weapons of mass destruction.
The Plot Against America – Available on Digital April 21st
Six-part HBO limited series imagines an alternate American history during World War II, told through the eyes of a working-class Jewish family in New Jersey as they endure the political rise of Charles Lindbergh, an aviator-hero and xenophobic populist, who captures the presidency and turns the nation toward fascism.
The Bronx, USA – Available on Digital April 27th
From the team behind HBO’s If You’re Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast, The Bronx, USA follows producer George Shapiro, who returns to his hometown of the Bronx after the death of his closest friend, Howard West. Revisiting the streets, stores and memories of his childhood, Shapiro reflects on the singularity of the borough he grew up in and the close friendships he made there that have stood the test of time. Along with George, the film features notable Bronx-ites like General Colin Powell, Alan Alda, Carl Reiner, Rob Reiner and Chazz Palminteri, who share their experiences and what the Bronx means to them. The 83-minute documentary also introduces the next generation of Bronx-ites – the 2017 graduating class of DeWitt Clinton High School, who come from different backgrounds from Shapiro’s class of 1949, but whose passion, drive and emphasis on the power of friendship connects them with those who came before them nearly seventy years ago. A love letter to a special part of New York City and its distinctive residents, The Bronx, USA is a funny, heartwarming and insightful celebration of what connects us across racial backgrounds, cultures and generations, ultimately emphasizing the hope that exists for the future of America.
