Summer Pasture

Loading
"Filmed in the high grasslands of eastern Tibet [in 2007], Summer pasture offers an intimate glimpse into the life of a young nomad couple and their infant daughter. Locho and his wife Yama live in Dzachukha, eastern Tibet--nicknamed '5-most' by the Chinese for being the highest, coldest, poorest, largest, and most remote country in Sichuan Province. They depend on their herd of yaks for survival, much as their ancestors have for generations. In recent years, however, Dzachukha has undergone rapid development, and Locho and Yama are finding their traditional way of life increasingly more difficult to maintain. Summer pasture evolves as a patient exploration of Locho and Yama's personalities, relationship, and the changes taking place around them. Over its course we witness their trav [...]

Arabic Movie

Loading
So many Israelis still wax nostalgic about that old Friday afternoon ritual, back in the times when television had just one channel. Everyone would watch the Arab movie of the week, but did anybody ever wonder how Israel's official TV station was able to transcend hostile boundaries to obtain these films, and why it insisted on showing movies made by "the enemy"? The Arabic-language movie from Egypt let some of us escape back to our original homeland, and let others peek out from our "villa in the jungle" and catch a glimpse of our neighbors across the border. But most of us didn't really want to see the people whose culture, anguish, and aspirations were reflected on our screens. "Arab Movie" brings us the stars and the songs, the convoluted plots, and that fleeting moment when we s [...]

The Last Laugh

Loading
A feature documentary that proceeds from the premise that the Holocaust would seem to be an absolutely off-limits topic for comedy. But is it? History shows that even the victims of the Nazi concentration camps themselves used humor as a means of survival and resistance. Still, any use of comedy in connection with this horror risks diminishing the suffering of millions. So where is the line? If we make the Holocaust off limits, what are the implications for other controversial subjects--9/11, AIDS, racism--in a society that prizes freedom of speech? Shot on Super 16mm, "The Last Laugh" thoughtfully weaves together an intimate cinema verité portrait of Auschwitz survivor Renee Firestone alongside interviews with influential comedians and thinkers ranging from Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverm [...]
