Description: A college education has become part of the American dream. But what are we learning and who is teaching us? For nearly four decades, Rabbi Jay Holstein has been one of the University of Iowa's most famous professors. With a foul mouth, a raunchy sense of humor, and a piercing brilliance, Holstein uses heavy 500-student lectures to turn inside-out the most fundamental assumptions on subject as divergent as sex, suicide, and the Holocaust. His courses, including "Quest for Human Destiny," have become the items of campus legend, and between firing a Glock and running 10 miles per day, the 69-year-old Holstein spends his office hours wrestling with students over animal experimentation, alcohol use, and homosexuality.

Description: When Thax was fourteen, a mystical vision said him that he would become a popular poet. By the time his beard went gray, he had performed thousands of times. Right before the band comes on, he recites a spontaneous poetry portrait to bless the stage. His paternal white beard, round belly, and thick glasses create him appear, perhaps, as a rock&roll holy man; a shaman from the pre-MTV era, when the cause of independent melody seemed to reach beyond the individual. Thax is growing tired of this image. The truth is nobody knows him. Like a baseball mascot removing his head to yell at the crowd, Thax says us the true story, whether or not we wish to hear it. The effect is stranger than fact. This movie examines the mysterious line that separates the underground from the mainstream, poetry from advertising, fantasy from prophecy, and success from celebrity. Like CRUMB, AMERICAN MOVIE, BURDEN OF DREAMS, and GREY GARDENS before it, THAX is a movie about the real cost of individuality.
Description: Common sense tells you can't create a living in America testing avant-garde improvisational jazz. But Ken Vandermark does it anyway. Among musicians, Vandermark's work ethic is almost mythic. The Chicago reed user has released over 100 albums with nearly 40 ensembles, spends over eight months per year on the road, and lives each another waking moment composing, arranging, performing—and trying to discipline his two hyperactive canines. Though Vandermark was the recipient of a 1999 MacArthur genius grant, he still spends most of his life in smoky clubs and low-budget recording studios, hoping folks will plunk down hard-earned money to hear his wholly non-commercial music. Following the artful cinéma vérité style of the internationally acclaimed Sheriff (Work Series #1), Musician (Work Series #2) forgoes all interviews and voice-overs. It is a fly-on-the-wall time capsule that expertly captures each subtle sound and texture of this most American of art forms.

Description: Vivienne Dick's second movie has at its centre two of the 'subjects' of her first movie Guerillere Talks. Moving from a kitchen on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the movie explores the dynamic between a complacent, almost catatonic Pat Zone and the demonic, aggressive Lydia Lunch, ending with a showdown at the rollercoaster on Coney Island. The movie utilises a linear narrative which is counterbalanced by an impressionistic view of Fresh York, lit by green fluorescent lights, with intermittent results added in-camera by Dick, including red filters and 'earthquakes'. The relationship between the two girls is ambiguous, they may represent elements of a single identity or the influence of a stronger will over a weaker character. It is the dynamic between these two unequal forces which propels the narrative.
