The Portland Museum of Art’s PMA Films has added several selections to its roster of films for streaming. Partnering with exhibitors and distributors, PMA is renting retrospectives and first-run content to the public; a portion of proceeds benefits the museum. Newly available are:

“Some Kind of Heaven,” directed by Lance Oppenheim. A documentary that cracks the manicured facade of The Villages, America’s largest retirement community — a massive, self-contained utopia located in Central Florida — looking at a small group of residents who are unable to find happiness within the community’s prepackaged paradise.

“Beautiful Something Left Behind,” directed by Katrine Philp. New Jersey’s Good Grief counseling center offers a holistic approach to mourning. The film presents an affectionate and intimate look at the lives of several children who have recently lost their parents and must navigate their grief by embracing sadness with honesty, bravery, humor, and love.

“Preparations to Be Together for an Unknown Period of Time,” directed by Lili Horvát. After 20 years in the U.S., a Hungarian neurosurgeon returns to Budapest for a romantic rendezvous with a fellow doctor she met at a conference. When the love of her life is nowhere to be seen, she tracks him down, only to have the bewildered man claim the two have never met. As the brilliant surgeon desperately searches for the truth, she fears her own brain may be tricking her into a romantic delusion.

“Identifying Features,” directed by Fernanda Valadez. In this suspenseful drama, Magdalena has lost contact with her son after he left their Mexican town to cross the border into the U.S. in search of work. Desperate to find out what happened to him, she embarks on an ever-expanding and increasingly dangerous journey to discover the truth.

“My Rembrandt,” directed by Oeke Hoogendijk. A documentary exploring the art world’s obsession with Rembrandt and the motives of its elite: 350 years after his death, aristocrats cherish, experts rule, art dealers investigate, collectors hunt and museums battle over his works.
