American Experience: The Wright Stuff 1996
Description: On August 8, 1908, at a racetrack outside Paris, Wilbur Wright executed what was, for him, a routine flight: a smooth take-off banking into a couple of tight circles, ending in a excellent landing. The flight took less than two minutes, but it left spectators awestruck. While the combined talents of Wilbur and Orville Wright had produced the first plane capable of controlled flight , their distrust of others had almost cost them the credit for their invention. Now, having proved to the public that they had mastered the sky, the reserved brothers from the tiny city of Dayton, Ohio, became globe celebrities.
Released: 12 Feb 1996 Director: Nancy Porter Writers: Nancy Porter Actors: Garrison Keillor, David McCullough Genres: Documentary, History

But the dawn of a fresh day appears on the horizon and the globe before us lights up. In the distance, you can hear the echoes of the city, and a boy, at the top of the mountain, listens to the wind, losing himself in the infinite.

Description: Murder In The Front Row: The San Francisco Bay Zone Thrash Metal Story. In the early 1980’s, a tiny group of dedicated Bay Zone headbangers shunned the difficult rock of MTV and Hollywood hairspray bands in favor of a more risky brand of metal that became known as thrash! From the tape trading network to the clubs to the record shops and fanzines, director Adam Dubin reveals how the stage nurtured the melody and the melody spawned a movement. Murder In The Front Row is said through strong first person testimony and stunning animation and photography. The movie is a social study of a group of young folks defying the odds and building something essential for themselves. Featuring interviews with Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Exodus, Testament, Death Angel, Possessed and many more! Narrated by Brian Posehn.

There he directed and produced more than 10 No-Budget movies. Diffic ult relationships and the process of filmmaking itself were his main themes. He got lost in alcoholism and committed suicide in August 2012.

American Experience: The Wright Stuff Reviews:

For the past several decades, PBS's "The American Experience" has been quietly producing one of the greatest shows on television. Time and again, they have released amazingly nice documentaries--ones who are nearly everytime better than their competition. Yet again, "The Wright Stuff" is an exceptional episode--and it was a joy to watch.This present is about the Wright Brothers. It's not just about their invention of the airplane but about their lives--both before and after the invention. It was quite interesting--especially as you learn that the brothers were self-taught engineers--and were better than college-educated ones! In addition, you learn about the controversy concerning their proving they were the first to fly, though the movie seems to indicate it was clearly established around 1910. It now wasn't and the decision to credit them didn't come until much later. Part of this was, it seems, the fault of the brothers--as they didn't wish to present off their fresh invention for fears of having their concept stolen! It's all very interesting and a great loving portrait of these geniuses. Well made and well worth seeing.
