Alvar Aalto [electronic resource]: Technology and Nature

Filmed in his native Finland, Italy, Germany, and the U.S., this program looks at the life and work of Alvar Aalto and examines his creative style in the context of his time, the traditions he inherited, and the country and climate in which he lived. For Aalto, the Finnish landscape was much more than the background to which he successfully molded his own creations; he had an almost mystical affinity with it which was central to his whole achievement. Throughout his long career, Aalto's work embraced almost all the key public institutions as well as public and private housing. In the 1930s and 40s, almost single-handedly, Aalto made his country a place of pilgrimage for all who sought enlightenment as to the aesthetic possibility of the new architecture.

The U.S. Air Guitar Championship began in 2003, with two regional competitions, in New York and Los Angeles, with the finals in LA. The film follows the fierce competition between David "C-Diddy" Jung, (who rocks a Hello Kitty breastplate) and Dan "Björn Türoque" Crane, eternal challenger and perennial runner-up. After the US championship, they move on to Finland, where they are the first Americans ever to compete. The Europeans have several years head start, take air guitar very seriously, and really know h [...]

Leningrad Cowboys: Total Balalaika Show

Loading...
The Leningrad Cowboys are an American influenced Finnish show-band that likes to parody the clichés of rock stardom, while the Red Army Ensemble was formed to preserve Russian folk music. This event drew 70,000 people, and involved two nations that were at war a half a century ago and then endured a "peaceful coexistence" during the Cold War. What seems an impossible combination of musical styles and tastes becomes a sublime experience, especially when the Red Army musicians pick up their balalaikas to join the Cowboys on Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to heaven."
