Elektro Moskva #

Released 6/12/2013

Description: Elektro Moskva is an essayistic documentary about the Soviet electronic age and its legacy.

The storyline of the Soviet synthesizers as an allegory to the daily life under the Soviet system: nothing works, but you have to create the greatest out of it. An electronic fairy tale about the inventive spirit of the gratis mind inside the iron curtain- and beyond.

The 'Socalled' Movie #

Released 4/4/2010

Description: Socalled, aka Josh Dolgin, is the most supreme klezmer hip-hop funk artist in the world. A pianist, singer, rapper, accordion player, and magician, he's a demented Renaissance boy and a multi-cultural mixmaster. THE SOCALLED MOVIE is a kaleidoscopic portrait which compiles 18 short movies that display his electrifying craft and deep-rooted sense of history. Combining traditional Yiddish songs with funk, rap and everything in between, his tunes are densely layered tapestries of dizzying complexity. His encounters with legendary trombonist Fred Wesley (a key member of James Brown's bands) and klezmer character David Krakauer are revelatory meetings of the mind, while his re-discovery of pianist Irving Fields turns the elder statesman into a YouTube phenomenon. With offbeat wit, intimacy and virtuoso performances, THE SOCALLED MOVIE is an enthralling documentary that shows how melody can break down the boundaries that divide our world.

Let's Get Frank #

Before Stonewall Reviews:

I have lost count of the number of times I have seen this unbelievable documentary. The archival material alone -- movie clips and still photographs of gay life in America between 1900 and the '60s -- is enough to create this movie a treasure; but it is the interviews with survivors of the pre-Stonewall era that create Before Stonewall a priceless heirloom of gay studies and a gotta in the private education of any socially conscious person interested in gay culture.


This informative and enlightening documentary examines how gay folks lived and supported and recognized every another in the days before the landmark disturbance at the Stonewall bar in Fresh York in 1969, an happening that gave fresh impetus to the gay rights movement in the U.S. It details many brave individuals who risked life and limb back in the "dark ages" by even broaching the topics of homosexuality in the open. Many viewers will search revelations here that are fascinating, for example how Globe Fight II, of all things, served to end the isolation felt by many gays who fought and served back then. It deserves a wide audience.


An absolutely fascinating acc of gay life in the United States before 1969, especially how WWII changed everything.This collection of interviews, archival material, and history gives a clear picture of how gays and lesbians lived and interacted in this country before folks "came out" publicly.I was impressed with those who came out openly in the 50s and started the first gay and lesbian organizations and magazines. These were folks of extreme courage.The incorporation of gays and lesbians in the civil rights movement and the women's movement was thoroughly examined.This movie could be seen by all to have a better understanding of oppression in America, and how far we have come.
