Content advisory: the English subtitles of “The Roundy Belly Wolf” contain one mildly coarse word. “The Aviator” contains a short dream sequence of a plane falling which might be too intense for some sensitive viewers. It is purposefully put last in the program so that those who wish to leave after the film, “The Wind in the Reeds,” may do so.
