Soundtrack for a Revolution 2009
Description: Says the storyline of the American civil rights movement through its strong melody - the freedom songs protesters sang on picket lines, in mass meetings, and in jail cells as they fought for justice and equality. Details fresh performances of the freedom songs by top artists; archival footage; and interviews with civil rights foot troops and leaders. Freedom songs evolved from slave chants, from the labor movement, and especially from the black church. Melody enabled blacks to sing words they should not say, and it was crucial in supporting the protesters as they faced down brutal aggression with dignity and non-violence. The infectious energy of the songs swept folks up and empowered them to war for their rights. This movie celebrates the vitality of this music.
Released: 24 Apr 2009 Director: Bill Guttentag, Dan Sturman Writers: Bill Guttentag, Dan Sturman Actors: The Roots, John Legend, Wyclef Jean, Joss Stone Genres: Documentary, History, Music

Engelchen flieg #

Released 3/10/2001

Description: Twenty years ago, director Christiane Burkhard’s parents died in a plane crash. Actually she has made a documentary, in collaboration with her sister, about remembering and coming to terms with the facts. First, she looks for accounts in the former homes and from family and mates of the couple. She also has a huge number of old Super-8 recordings. Her mother was an enthusiastic amateur filmmaker, who captured all the major family happenings on film. Together with her sister, Burkhard watches the footage of the smiling faces of her parents. Making this documentary becomes a self-conceived ritual that could support her bid farewell to an unreal and unaccepted past. The subdued tone suits the difficulties all those involved have talking about the event, even after twenty years.

Island #

Released 9/14/2018

Description: A haunting, deeply moving documentary set among terminally ill cancer patients. The titular island of Steven Eastwood’s detail documentary is the Isle of Wight, where the filmmaker befriended a handful of individuals facing a terminal cancer diagnosis. Following them as they approach the end – through hospital appointments, time with family – this is a stark portrait, acutely attuned to the consoling rituals and stark realities of the dying process. Combining observational footage of his topics with contemplative shots of the surrounding coastal landscapes through the changing seasons, this deeply felt meditation on the passage from life to death is imbued with an unsensational matter-of-factness and resonant lyricism. A necessarily harrowing film, revealing through scenes of unblinking duration the final stages of the disease’s progress on its sufferers, The Island is also a movie of enormous delicacy, made in a spirit of tender respect for each one of the folks involved.

Villa Mehu – Kadonnut koti #

Released 3/8/2018

Description: “Villa Mehu – A Lost Home” is a poetic short documentary about the destructive force of time and the fragility of one man’s lifework. It’s a melancholic adventure to the past, a visit to mystical Villa Mehu built by a deceased ITE artist Elis Sinistö. Located deep in the woods of Veklahti, Finland, Villa Mehu served as Sinistö’s home for 50 years and it was also the best artwork of his life although it has never got the respect that it could deserve. Today, after Sinistö’s death, it is decaying slowly but surely towards its final demolition without anyone even noticing. “Villa Mehu – A Lost Home” takes its audience to a hypnotic adventure through the bizarre yet pretty globe of Elis Sinistö. It is both a tribute to his lifework and an attempt to save a tiny piece of Finland’s cultural history.

Soundtrack for a Revolution Reviews:

...And overcome,they did (and allow us all be thankful). I'm talking about the Civil Rights movement that (more or less)started back in the 1950's,when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on that bus to a white passenger (and was no large surprise what so ever,placed under arrest by the police),and acted as the springboard for a fresh revolution in the southern most United States:the revolution for civil rights for African American's. Although things only got far uglier (race riots, lynchings,protest rallies,with the subsequent violence toward the protesters,as well as the Freedom Riders),the transport toward civil rights was cemented with the March on Washington,with the Rev.Dr. Martin Luther King's insightful "I have a dream" speech before thousands of both black & white audiences. All of this,and more is documented in Bill Guttentag & Dan Sturman's superlative documentary,"Soundtrack For A Revolution". Besides a treasure trove of movie footage (both black & white,as well as colour)of the happenings that transpired a nation,there is testimony from some of the pioneers of the Civil Rights movement (folk singer/activist,Harry Belafonte,John Lewis,Charles Neblett,Robert Cohen,etc.),as well as performances of some of the melody that shaped a nation by the likes of The Roots,John Legend,Joss Stone,Wyclef Jean,Richie Havens & The Blind Men Of Alabama,to mention a few,as well as original movie footage of the songs being sung by the folks who were clamoring for social change (via newsreel & tv movie clips). The cinematography for the interview footage,as well as the performances are by Jon Else,Stephen Kazminski & Buddy Squires,with accuracy editing by Jeffrey Doe. This is a documentary that could be seen by anybody who is interested in American social history,and especially could be screened in schools during Black History Month,in February. Not rated by the MPAA,this movie includes disturbing photos & testimony of the ugly face of racism during a troubled time,as well as some unpleasant racial slurs by some of the lowest of the low,bottom feeders of society (and you know whom I am referring to)
