Description: The newest Abu Ghraib prison torture scandal shocked the American public. But they might be even more stunned to explore that strikingly related violence occurs inside prisons throughout the United States, where prisoners are routinely abused, even tortured, by prison guards. TORTURE: AMERICA'S BRUTAL PRISONS visits correctional institutions in Texas, Florida and California, uncovering penal systems with deeply ingrained cultures of punishment, rather than rehabilitation.
Description: A CHILDHOOD. A NEIGHBORHOOD. AN ODE TO LIFE One-of-a-kind autobiography narrated and filmed with nice sensibility and beauty. Its exceptional cinematic quality offers a visual treat to a Quebec rarely seen before. This poetic take on childhood memory transcends easy nostalgia for a sincere celebration of life. Claude Demers returns to the working-class district of Montréal where he grew up, and instantly wonders: Why? The rest of Where I'm From forms the answer. Demers tries to relive all the experiences he had for the first time as a child, or at least understand them: the first novel he read and the power of language. His first awareness of death. The question of what is normal and what isn’t. The concept of wanting to leave, of having to leave.
Description: In response to the Fukushima disaster, Yama-san is running an election campaign with an anti-nuclear message. But unlike last time, he has no money, no machine, no nothing. Does he even stand a chance? On March 11, 2011, Japan experienced one of the most calamitous nuclear disasters in history. But in two national elections following the accident, the pro-nuclear Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) achieved landslide victories, gaining control of the two parliaments. Why? 'Campaign 2' by Kazuhiro Soda observes a tiny local election right after the disaster and gives insight into this hard question, presenting a microcosm of Japan's political-psychological landscape.
Description: Portrait of an necessary American musician through the testimonies of fellow musicians and folks from his environment, but also through archival material and documents from different stages of his life and career.
Description: The Black Audio Movie Collective’s seventh movie envisioned the death and life of the African American revolutionary as a seven part study in iconography as narrated by novelist Toni Cade Bambara and actor Giancarlo Espesito. The stylized tableaux vivants that memorialise Malcolm’s life referenced the early 20th century funeral photography of James Van der Zee’s The Harlem Ebook of the Dead and the elemental static cinematography of Sergei Paradjanov’s The Colour of Pomegranates.
Description: As co-created by environmentalists Stephan Poulle and Nicolas Koutsikas, the documentary Gulf Stream and the Next Ice Age argues and provides evidence for the concept that mankind is wreaking permanent and potentially irreversible hurt on the ecosystem by interfering with the natural course of the Gulf Stream. Koutsikas and Poulle recommend that this interference, in turn, will prompt a fresh Ice Age that virtually destroys the modern world.
Description: This is the storyline of Harry, Niall, Zayn, Louis and Liam; five men from the UK who are taking the globe by storm. One Direction are a global phenomenon, spearheading a British Invasion of America not seen for fifty years. From their explosive first appearance on The X Factor to becoming the hottest man band on the planet, Reaching for the stars details previously unseen footage from the man s globe tour and concerts. Interviews with industry experts discover what really makes these teen idols tick, and as this pop fairy-tale unfolds we ask what s next? for the men who seem to have it all.
Description: This is a masterpiece of found footage and archival cinema largely ignored. Using vast collections of photographs and family movies acquired in the flea stores and to expatriates, combined with photos produced by mass media and Franco official regime, this movie traces the history of the folks of Spain from civil fight to the raising mass culture and consumption in the '70s. The "particularity" is that all the chapters are distinguished among them by a famous song, similar with the content shown, with deals with the invented and surrealistic globe invented by folks to survive in starvation, repression and lack of freedom. This tactic takes that to the origins of cinema, to the cabaret, and to cinema as a colective party in the theater.
Description: Held up for seven years before it was released, Far from the Trees seems like a excellent successor to Luis Buñuel's Land Without Bread. Like that earlier film, it is a type of impressionistic travelogue that shows a Spain far from the beaten paths of the tourist resorts; not only poverty but the persistence of superstitions and occult beliefs captured by the movie rebuke the photo of a forward-looking, modern Spain that by the 60s was being promoted by the Franco regime. Esteva Grewe largely allows the photos and juxtapositions to speak for themselves, giving the movie a lyrical feeling that somewhat softens its social criticism - though obviously not enough for the censors.
Description: The movie accompanies the Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist around the world, shows her at work in her studio in Zurich as well as at the Museum of Modern Art in Fresh York. Since she won the Duemila Prize at the Biennale di Venezia in 1997, Pipilotti Rist is an internationally recognized and renowned artist. For the first time, she lets a documentary filmmaker into her world, providing insight into her constructive process, the development of projects and the collaboration with her team.
Description: In Bettina Büttner’s exquisitely lucid documentary Kinder (Kids), childhood dysfunction, loneliness, and pent-up emotion run wild at an all-boys group home in southern Germany. The kids interned here contain ten-year-olds Marvin and Tommy. Marvin, fiddling with a mini plastic Lego sword, explains matter-of-factly to the camera, “This is a knife. You test it to slash stomachs open.” Dennis, who is even younger, is seen in a hysteric fit, mimicking some pornographic scene. Men will be boys, but innocence is disproportionately spare here. Selecting not to dwell on the harsh specifics, Büttner reveals the disconcerting manner in which traumatic episodes can manifest themselves in the mundane — a minigame of Lego, Hide and Seek, or Truth or Dare. Filmed in lapidary black-and-white, Büttner’s fascinating movie sheds light on childhood from the boys’ characteristically disadvantaged perspective — one not yet totally cognizant — leaving much ethically to ponder over.
Description: By the time "It's A Mean Old World" was filmed, Reverend Pearly Brown had been struggling to survive singing gospel melody for nearly 40 years. While the rough sound of his bottleneck testing has the feel of a life spent scuffling on the street, the poignancy of his voice is a better measure of the gentle spirit and inner strength of the man.
Description: The storyline of the settlement of Irish immigrants in the North Bronx, Fresh York, and how the once predominantly Irish neighborhoods are changing because of the influx of another groups.
Description: A short movie about axe making in Oakland, Maine. It documents the process of creating fine axes in the Emerson Stevens store -- the last axe factory to operate in Oakland. Oakland was once a world-famous center of quality blade-making.
Description: Pete and Toshi Seeger, their son Daniel, and folklorist Bruce Jackson visited a Texas prison in Huntsville in March of 1966 and produced this rare document of of work songs by inmates of the Ellis Unit.

Description: Supporters from all walks of life test to describe what makes so many inhabitants of Rotterdam love the red-and-white of Feyenoord so much. But, as one fanatic puts it: 'You can't explain it, you just have to feel it.' Made by a supporter for supporters.
Description: DREAMING NICARAGUA is a movie about HOPE. It's about love for the dignity and courage of the human spirit that, even immersed in uttermost tragic conditions, wars for a better life, and in this case, with a friendly SMILE. DREAMING is a sensitive and lyrical portrayal of four kids living in extreme poverty in Nicaragua. The movie takes us beyond their hardships and gives voice to the youngsters, who are surprisingly funny, hopeful, and optimistic. A traveling art teacher provides a secure arena for our four unlikely protagonists to express their innermost thoughts. When painting, the children momentarily escape the stresses of their reality into a globe of dreams and ideas, a stark contrast to their lives outside: a vicious cycle of hunger, kid labor, and violence. Despite the extreme circumstances, the kids and their families face their lives with an inspiring unity, strength and humor.
Description: After selling herself at fourteen to a brothel inside her home city of Svay Pak, Mien takes an undesired path all over Cambodia for the remainder of her teenage life. At twenty, her path crosses with a group of folks fighting to create a difference, bringing her long and onerous adventure back to face where it all began. The Pink Room is an intertwined storyline of the heart-rending, epic war to end sex slavery, from rescue to prevention, and experiencing first hand, the need to change not just individuals, but the communities they come from. Most documentaries on trafficking only bring awareness to the problem. This movie bring awareness to the solutions.
Description: Nobody can escape the dance of life. Prisoners of the Ground is literally and symbolically about surviving in the dark: a portrait of an introvert, melancholic society; a Finnish tango in the shape of a movie.
Description: From Oscar and Emmy award winning filmmakers, Red Units highlights the Soviet Union's legendary and enigmatic hockey training culture and world-dominating squad through the eyes of the team's Captain Slava Fetisov, following his shift from hockey star and celebrated national character to political enemy.

A movie by Gabe Polsky and Executive Producers Werner Herzog and Jerry Weintraub.
Description: Eight girls on the margins of Israeli society are thrown together during the course of a school year at Tel Aviv's oldest beauty school. Amidst the combs and colorings, these girls show a microcosm of modern-day Tel Aviv -- native Israelis and fresh immigrants, Asians and Africans, among them girls struggling with cancer and private loss. As they learn to make beauty without, every girl undergoes a strong transformation within.
Description: Summers develops a quasi-autobiographical fictional frame for an inquiry into a gallery of Spanish celebrities who have decayed into something worse than total abandonment. The movie visits a famous singer, a winner prize warrior who has been committed to an asylum, and an ancient matador returning to the ring among many others to probe the anomie that comes with fame as a privilege at its apex and a curse at its bitter end. This movie treads somewhere between what should have been a legitimate "essay film" and a commercial "where are they now" featurette. The treasure hunt for the "campeón maldito" or "estrella maldita" (cursed champ or star) seems to be a fixture of Spanish famous culture today (as of course it is in a coarser method today in Anglo-American culture). In any event, this is an interesting instance of this.
