Description: Chronological look at the life and career of Johnny Carson (1925-2005), with commentary from an ex-wife and more than 30 fellow comedians, friends, employees, and biographers. The biography defines why Carson was an enduring star (his cool, his timing, his genuine laugh, his breadth of knowledge) and pursues his motivations and inner self (a loner with a drinking problem, a decent Midwesterner whose mother withheld approval, a quiet person who loved to entertain). The key to understanding him, argues the biography, is his love of magic.

Released 2/6/2009

Description: Crude Independence is a documentary movie about the heartland in the process of transplanting itself, and the fresh heart is pumping oil.

With the advent of fresh drilling technologies, oil companies from far and wide are descending on tiny rural cities across America with boys and machinery in tow.

Through revealing interviews and breathtaking imagery of the northern plains, Crude Independence is a rumination on the future of tiny city America-a tale of change at the hands of the global energy store and America's unyielding thirst for oil.
