The Portland Museum of Art has added several selections to the list of films it offers 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:

“The Father,” directed by Florian Zeller. Anthony is 80, mischievous, living defiantly alone and rejecting the caregivers that his daughter, Anne, introduces. Yet help is also becoming a necessity for Anne; she hopes to move to Paris, can’t make daily visits anymore and Anthony’s grip on reality is unraveling.

“This Is Not a Burial, It’s a Resurrection,” directed by Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese. Lesotho’s first submission for Oscar consideration, in Sesotho with English subtitles. While preparing for her own death, Mantoa, an 80-year-old woman who has lived in a small Lesotho village her entire life, receives word of an accident that has killed her only son, leaving her entirely alone, with only the respect of her community, the traditions of her ancestors, and the courage of her convictions. When her community must relocate to make way for a dam that would flood her family’s burial ground, Mantoa draws a line in the sand and becomes an unlikely political and spiritual leader.

“2021 Oscar-Nominated Shorts: Animation, Live Action, and Documentary,” various directors. Each is offered as a separate rental.
