10 Attitudes

Loading...
Josh is a thirtysomething gay man who came to Los Angeles from Cleveland ten years earlier with his significant other, Lyle. While Lyle has eased comfortably into the Los Angeles lifestyle, Josh is still a Midwesterner at heart, and he becomes aware of just how far off base he is when he learns Lyle has been having an affair. Josh breaks up with Lyle, and, suddenly single after a decade, he finds he's more than a little out of step with the Hollywood dating scene. Josh's friend Brandon assures him that it will only take ten dates for Josh to find the new man of his dreams, and after getting some fresh fashion advice from the wildly flamboyant Tex, Josh hits the Internet looking for love. However, Josh ends up kissing more than his share of toads as he searches for Prince Charming.

Agents of Change

Loading...
From the well-publicized events at San Francisco State in 1968 to the image of black students with guns emerging from the takeover of the student union at Cornell University in April 1969, the struggle for a more relevant and meaningful education became a clarion call across the country in the late 1960s. Through the stories of the young men and women who were at the forefront of these efforts, Agents of Change examines the untold story of the racial conditions on college campuses and in the country that led to these protests, revealing how unprepared these institutions were when confronted by demands for black studies programs, safer housing, fairer judicial proceedings, and changes to democratize the institutions. The film's characters were at the crossroads of change and controver [...]

Air Guitar Nation

Loading...
If punk helped democratize music by prizing energy over virtuosity--then air guitar takes it even further, removing musicianship and playing altogether. The world championships began in 1996, and the contest has been a part of the Oulu Music Video Festival in Oulu, Finland since. 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 [...]
