Private Dicks: Men Exposed

Among those interviewed are a retired 73 year-old professor who reflects on the decline in libido and prostate troubles, a 28 year-old porn star, a paralyzed advertising director who talks about sex as a paraplegic and a slang dictionary editor who explains the etymology of penis-related slang words and offers some rare historical slang.

For the Bible Tells Me So

Loading...
This documentary tells the stories of five Christian families coming to terms with their gay and lesbian children, in an America where thanks to social forces clashing, the very atmosphere seems filled with hatred, old-fashioned prejudice, and fear of the other. Amidst scholars parsing the Old and New Testaments, there are copious archival photographs, illustrations of biblical scenes, and a thoughtful and constructive exploration of the need for spirituality and family relationships in human life. The irony, of course, is that the people who would benefit most from an encounter with the film--fundamentalists, gay bashers, leaders of the ex-gay movement, and the like--are the folks least likely to see it or be open to its message of tolerance.

One Bright Shining Moment: The Forgotten Summer of George McGovern

Loading...
This documentary retraces George McGovern's bold presidential campaign of 1972 - a grassroots campaign that fought for peace and justice, and positioned ideas and people first. However, what is remembered today as being the ultimate political defeat of the American Century may also have been its high watermark. The film poses this central question: what does the crushing electoral defeat of a man so well respected for his decency and intellect say about the electoral process, the American government, and more importantly, what does it say about the forces at work on the American people---then and now?
