The Seventies

Loading...
The 1970's was one of the most dramatic decades in American history. The country lost its first war, experienced a frighteningly close nuclear meltdown, endured two energy crises; and saw a political scandal bring down a President. This was also the decade of excess and flamboyance - where punk and disco collided, sexual mores were broken and society's taboos were laid bare. Through the use of rarely seen archival footage and interviews with key identities from the era, this incisive documentary paints a vivid portrait of a time that impacts us still.

Displaying courage, grace and even humor after decades of deprivation through conflict, international sanctions, and totalitarian oppression, their optimism and determination is both inspiring and heartbreaking. Ultimately, Homeland : Iraq year zero is the story of a lost civilization--one of the oldest on the planet--destroyed by the wanton and misguided actions of a more powerful nation"--Container.

In Country

Loading...
"To many of us, the idea of Civil War re-enactment is a familiar concept. But the men of Delta 2/5(R) recreate the battles of a far more charged conflict: The Vietnam War. For one weekend a year, the woods of Oregon transform as a mix of combat enthusiasts, Iraq veterans, and even a former South Vietnamese Army officer, revive, by choice, a war that a whole generation would much rather forget. Disquieting and provocative, this blurs fantasy with trauma, deftly tugging at the imposing question: what compels these men to don the vintage uniforms and meticulously bring this controversial war back to life?" -- Container.

2 Oder 3 Dinge, Die Ich von Ihm Weiß

"Family drama and historical truth collide in this film about the painful legacy cast by Hanns Ludin, a prominent Nazi executed for war crimes in 1947. In this astonishing documentary, Hanns Ludin's son, filmmaker Malte Ludin, breaks sixty years of silence and repression, investigating his father's dark deeds and interviewing his still-denying sisters.

Pride of Lions

Loading...
Pride of lions presents Sierra Leone in a new light -- the story of what it means for a country and its people brutalized by an 11-year civil war to move beyond their scars. Through personal stories of human suffering, loss, and recovery, woven within a 50-year historical framework, the Sierra Leoneans reveal universal truths about the strength of the human spirit and the power of forgiveness to move us forward. The amputee, boy soldier, doctor, high school principal, student, and agricultural entrepreneur -- each has a unique perspective and a powerful story to tell. Witnessing their ability to overcome inconceivable human atrocities and reclaim their legacy is inspirational for most, but for the two Americans in our story, it has been life changing.
