Description: Side by Side; Searching for a relationship that defines the states of belonging; The zone in the middle. Questioning the power of the image… the photo that tutorials us. The photo that lies. “Something is of course everytime lost when we receive to see only one side. It is for the exact same reason that one gotta have the courage to confess the pain of the coma-like contrast of life and cinema. In this scenario, somehow we gotta place it all together to see the large picture; While in the state of unconsciousness, we are stuck at the thin edge of a screen where two worlds, two countries, and two towns separate for the sake of it. I feel helpless standing in the middle. In this chain of accidents, in this war of guns and bombs, in the pile of my notes, thoughts, and nostalgic memories of Texas and Tehran, the globe lacks believe in common sense.”

Thunder and Lightning #

Released 5/4/2015

Description: The greatest squad never to victory the College Globe Series? It might have been the 1985 Mississippi State Bulldogs, who produced four Major League Baseball All-Stars. Two of them, Bobby Thigpen and Jeff Brantley, became Relievers of the Year, while the another two, Will Clark and Rafael Palmeiro, formed the imposing one-two hitting punch known as "Thunder and Lightning." The brash and bold Clark was born in Fresh Orleans, the son of a pool hustler, while the soft-spoken and shy Palmeiro was a son of Cuban immigrants who did his talking at the plate. As teammates at Mississippi State, they nearly propelled the Bulldogs to a College Globe Series title. Thirty years later, director Rory Karpf revisits those fabled Bulldogs, tracks the complicated relationship between Clark and Palmeiro, and brings closure to boys who could be remembered for what they did, and not for what they didn't do.

Schaut auf diese Stadt #

Released 8/12/1962

Description: This polemical documentary-using rare authentic photos and newsreels from both sides-justifies the erection of the Berlin Wall on August 13, 1961. It represents West Berlin as the front line of neo-fascism, terrorism and neo-colonialism-against which the peaceful town of East Berlin requires an "antifascist defense." Made at the behest of those responsible for GDR propaganda, Gass' trademark fast-paced editing and montage make a seamless, if skewed, rendition of the post-WWII history of Berlin. Notably absent, for example, are the Berlin Blockade and Airlift of 1948-49-that gave rise to the impassioned speech of West Berlin Mayor Ernst Reuter, from which the documentary's game is taken. The movie details the caustic text of journalist and propagandist Karl-Eduard von Schnitzler, soon a commentator on East German tv and host of the agitation tool "The Black Channel."

Korreltjie niks is my dood #

Released 1/1/2001

Description: On 19 July 1965, the South-African poet Ingrid Jonker walked into the sea near Drieankerbaai in Cape City at the age of 31. She left behind a tiny daughter and an oeuvre of three laurelled collections of poems. Jonker's work fell into oblivion, until on 25 May 1994 president Nelson Mandela opened the very first session of the first democratically elected parliament of South Africa with Jonker's poem Die type wat dood geskiet is deur soldate by Nyanga, a poem from 1960 that refers to the demonstrations near Sharpeville. Mandela chose the poem for nice reason; he named Jonker 'both an African and an Afrikaner'. A white person in South Africa cannot receive a bigger compliment. In the documentary Korreltjie niks is my dood, director Saskia van Schaik reconstructs the poet's eventful life, making her strong poetry with its South-African rhythm say part of the story.

McConkey Reviews:

I saw this nice documentary at a premiere in my hometown, and I didn't know very much about the movie prior to it coming out. I say you, this is one of those movies that makes you rethink your life. I did, and I kept thinking about how one boy made such a crazy impact on the world. Of course, he only revolutionized skiing, but it comes down to so much more than that. Shane McConkey is a character and a legend. I don't think I should ever do half the items he did, but after watching the documentary I am fully inspired to give a lot of crazy fresh things a shot. Watching this in a full theater was thoroughly entertaining when the funny items came up. Many folks were on the floor laughing from McConkey's outlandish and spontaneous behavior, and even though the film ends on a relatively sad note, you can't support but smile when you think back on the larger-than-life personality the last hour and forty mins entertained you with. I highly suggest this venture, especially if you're looking for superb views, intense winter sports, a high-profile bio, and a nice story. Also, one helluva soundtrack.See ya!


Incredibly nice movie/documentary. Prior to watching this I had only heard his name and the longer I watched the more I enjoyed it. Everyone involved in making this movie made it unbelievable to watch. The storyline itself is simply nice and the footage of Shane, his family, his mates and his wonderful life is unbelievably nice to experience. I would love to see this at an IMAX theater! Some of the first person views of his jumps makes you feel like you're there. I had no concept how nice this film and Shane's life was. So glad I saw it and I'll certainly watch it again- it's just that good. You don't have to be interested in skiing or BASE jumping to be blown away by it either. Simply put, watch this film!!


Being a lifelong skier, I knew who Shane McConkey was, but didn't follow his pursuits all that closely. After watching this wonderful documentary about his life, I am so much more enlightened about not only what he did, but just his general approach to life. His target was never to slay himself taking unnecessary risks, but rather hold pushing to the next lvl after next level, well aware of the inherent dangers. The homemade videos throughout the movie deliever a close-up insight into what drove Shane, and I found it deeply inspiring. He loved what he did, period. Some may criticize him for being selfish, that he abandoned a wife and young kid at home, but he wasn't the kind of guy that was going to sit back in the rocking chair and wait for life to pass him by. I absolutely suggest to this anyone, skiers or non-skiers alike, to witness moments with someone who was tapped into the most pure essence of totally living life.
