Description: In a half-changed world, girls are often forced to choose: Mothering or working? Your children's wellbeing or your own own? Responsibility or self expression? Who Does She Think She Is?, a documentary by Academy Award winning filmmaker Pamela Tanner Boll, details five fierce girls who refuse to choose. Through their lives, we discover some of the most problematic intersections of our time: mothering and creativity, partnering and independence, economics and art. Along the way, the movie invites us to consider both ancient legacies of girls worshipped as cultural muses and more modern times where most folks can't even name a handful of female artists. In the end, the diverse girls in the movie demonstrate that our creativity and our caregiving are not mutually exclusive, but deeply connected. In fact, their co-existence might just be the key to finishing the job. Written by Courtney Martin

Description: If you thought TV shows in which audiences and juries judge musical acts were a relatively fresh phenomenon, you'd better think again. In the 1970s, such "festivals" were incredibly famous in Brazil. They were recorded before a live studio audience, and usually featured a number of elimination rounds. They also formed the springboard for the career of many a big-name star, such as Chico Buarque, Caetano Veloso, Roberto Carlos and Gilberto Gil. Appearing on such a tool was no cakewalk, however: audiences should be as wild in their condemnation as in their appreciation of an artist. Extensive archive footage (including performances and behind-the-scenes interviews) from a turbulent final of the Festival of Brazilian Famous Melody one evening in 1967 paints a fascinating picture, not only of the transformation of Brazilian melody into true "festival" music, but also of a society starting to buck vs the yoke of military rule.
Description: In 1988, Oscar-winning German filmmaker Volker Schlondorff ("The Tin Drum") sat down with legendary director Billy Wilder at his office in Beverly Hills, California and turned on his camera for a series of filmed interviews.

We are presented with a generous smattering of movie clips, rare photographs and artwork, but mostly Wilder just sits in his office and talks with the off screen Schlondorff, moving easy between English and German.

Description: In late 2003, two filmmakers from the Sundance award-winning Guerrilla News Network spent three weeks on the frontlines of the simmering guerrilla fight in Iraq, gathering intelligence, dodging bullets, and capturing the untold stories of what has become the world's most covered, and misunderstood, conflict. BattleGround is an irreverent adventure that will challenge the orthodoxies of Left and Right, and highlight the humanity of all sides of the conflict. BattleGround will be a critical movie for anyone who wants to understand the strong forces that are sucking America deeper and deeper into a Middle Eastern quagmire. Is Iraq our generation's "Bright Shining Lie," or is it the frontline in a global war for national survival? Or is to some combination of both?
Description: How the cinema industry does not respect the author's work as it was conceived, how manipulates the motion pictures in order to create them easier to watch by an undemanding audience or even how mutilates them to adapt the original formats and runtimes to the restrictive frame of the tv screen and the abusive requirements of advertising.

Description: During the summary trial that he and his wife were submitted to, Nicolae Ceausescu is reviewing his long reign in power: 1965-1989. From a formal mission of view, The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu proves that it is possible to only test existing photos to yield movies focused on newest history, yet with an epic vein related to that of the historical fiction cinema. This is an eminently syntactic endeavor, where montage plays a twofold part: mise-en-scene, as it builds scenes that do not exist as such in the rushes, and classical editing, connecting scenes together.

Anna May Wong: In Her Own Words (2013) ** 1/2 (out of 4) This documentary is rather special in its own method but it still isn't quite as nice as one would hope. Director and writer Yunah Hong spends just under a hour going through the life and career of Anna May Wong, a talented and pretty actress that many felt could have been a star but wasn't because of her race. The documentary follows her earliest days all the method up to her death and the different movie highlights of her career. What makes this special is that we're given the typical documentary kind talking heads but Hong takes it a step further by having actress Doan Ly testing Wong and speak as her through letters she had written in her life. Anna May Wong certainly needs a nice documentary done on her and while this one here includes some interesting and even nice moments, it falls just short of being good. I think the one trouble with the movie is the actress testing Wong and talking for her. I really didn't think this added anything to the documentary and at times it just comes across a tiny silly. I think just having someone narrated her "own words" would have been more effective and less theatrical. The actress testing the part did a fine job but it just wasn't needed. The greatest items about this documentary deals with Wong's days in the silent cinema and how she ended up going to Germany to test and become a star. Hearing the result that the Production Code had on non-white actors was also quite interesting. Fanatics of the actress will certainly wish to check this one out but just a several minor switches and this should have been much better.
