WHITE MA­TE­RIAL Di­rec­tor and co-writer Claire De­nis ( 35 Shots of Rum) of­fers lit­tle in­for­ma­tion about the set­ting and po­lit­i­cal sit­u­a­tion por­trayed in her cur­rent film. All we know is that vi­o­lence has bro­ken out be­tween the po­lit­i­cal pow­ers and youth­ful rebels of an African nation, and a French colonist (Is­abelle Hup­pert, in a bravado per­for­mance) stub­bornly fights to keep her cof­fee plan­ta­tion run­ning. It’s a darkly lyrical story of the hu­man con­di­tion, the di­vi­sions we con­struct among one an­other, and fun­da­men­tal ques­tions of “home.” Not rated. 100 min­utes. In French with sub­ti­tles. Santa Fe. (Robert B. Ker)

(Not re­viewed) dark hu­mor, ironic twists, and sud­den blood­shed. Rated PG-13. 128 min­utes. Santa Fe; Es­pañola; Los Alamos; Taos. (Robert Nott) VI­SION: FROM THE LIFE OF HILDE­GARD VON BIN­GEN Mar­garethe von Trotta’s beau­ti­fully com­posed but stiff-kneed bi­og­ra­phy of Hilde­gard von Bin­gen, the re­mark­able 12th-cen­tury nun and vi­sion­ary, has a solemn earnest­ness but doesn’t breathe enough life into its sub­ject. Bar­bara Sukowa plays Hilde­gard with power and author­ity. She hits a lot of notes. It’s just that in the con­text of this movie, they don’t re­ver­ber­ate very much. Not rated. 111 min­utes. In Ger­man with sub­ti­tles. Santa Fe. (Jonathan Richards) THE WILDEST DREAM: CON­QUEST OF EVER­EST Bri­tish di­rec­tor An­thony Gef­fen’s sus­pense­ful and beau­ti­fully pho­tographed doc­u­men­tary ex­plores the fate and psy­che of climber Ge­orge Mal­lory, who dis­ap­peared on Mount Ever­est in 1924. More than seven decades af­ter Mal­lory’s death, Amer­i­can moun­taineer Con­rad Anker dis­cov­ered his re­mains 800 feet from Ever­est’s sum­mit. In 2007 Anker, along with Bri­tish climber Leo Hould­ing, re­traced Mal­lory’s fate­ful jour­ney, some­times us­ing equip­ment from the pe­riod, in an at­tempt to prove that Mal­lory could have reached the sum­mit be­fore per­ish­ing. Satur­day and Sun­day, Jan. 15 and 16, only. Rated PG. 93 min­utes.

Santa Fe. (Rob DeWalt) YOGI BEAR Af­ter the toxic Marmaduke this past sum­mer, and be­fore the lousy-look­ing Smurfs com­ing this year, here’s an­other live ac­tion/CGI adap­ta­tion of out­dated car­toon char­ac­ters. Dan Aykroyd and Justin Tim­ber­lake give voice to Yogi and Boo-Boo, re­spec­tively. Rated PG. 83 min­utes. Screens in 2-D only at Santa Fe;

Es­pañola; Taos.
