The Partisan Power of Digital Content

In the last decade, the internet has mobilized millions of people to take action. With digital content so abundant and so cheap, the power of that content to influence and drive action has never been stronger. But, that content also has the power to divide and polarize the people. We'll explore the impact digital content has on policy and politics.

Teenage punk, former metal drummer, and one-time truck driver Daughn Gibson now makes startling ballads that pit his world-weary torch-song crooning against current sampling techniques, organically turning laptop loops into something deeply felt and emotionally raw. The narratives on his debut solo record, All Hell, are the stuff of classic country songs–small-scale, small-town tragedy. But despite a pervasive, dust-topped twang, (and sampling... Read More →

Bronx rapper Kool Keith is one of the strangest, most influential figures in hip-hop history. His 80s group, The Ultramagnetic MCs, pioneered the use of “chopped” samples: warped, context-free snippets of sound now used as building block production technique across the full spectrum of pop music. As a solo artist, Keith has performed under a series of bizarre aliases, most notably as Dr. Octagon. His classic 1996 record Dr... Read More →

Miracles of Modern Science

Miracles of Modern Science are an unlikely rock band. Using just mandolin, violin, cello, standup bass, and drums, they create explosive pop that upends notions of what these instruments can do. The band began life at Princeton University. Vocalist/bassist Evan Younger and mandolinist Josh Hirshfeld shared a hall their freshman year and soon began hijacking open mics with their off-kilter acoustic collaborations. They found kindred spirits in... Read More →

Ceremony

Hardcore punk is in the middle of a resurgence, fueled both by reverent nostalgia for the broken nose physicality of the scene’s heyday (in an indie rock time significantly more chillaxed), and new bands willing to stretch the boundaries of the original sound. Fucked Up owned 2011 as a great example of the former, and their Matador Records label mates Ceremony are making a strong claim on 2012. The California band is hardly a fresh-faced... Read More →

Royal Headache

Sydney, Australia, is not the first place of origin you’d guess for Royal Headache. With a sound like a British Invasion band giddy in love with Motown 45s, their debut album feels like the product of hearts long broken, suggests skin pale from shunning the daylight. There are loose punk kick to the band too, jumping up from under singer Shogun’s weary crooning. It’s rock n’ roll, in short; emulating the original vintage, with the urgency... Read More →

Eternal Summers

Nicole Yun and Daniel Cundiff formed Eternal Summers as a duo in Roanoke, Virginia, an outgrowth of their involvement in the town’s close-knit artistic collective, Magic Twig. After the Parker Nitefly guitar that was key’s to their two-piece sound was stolen on tour, the band added bassist Jonathan Woods to compensate, making their giddy experiments in woozy indie-pop and quizzical post-punk a much sturdier force. ”Millions,” the first...

Zambri

Twin sisters Christy Jo and Jessica Zambri have been collaborating on music since childhood, giving the abstract synth-pop of their 2011 debut EP Glossolalia quite a bit of time to gestate. With eerily synced vocal harmonies floating above a nearly apocalyptic clatter, their sound is both catchy and unsettling. Though their vision on record is tightly contained (made alone, but with the help of indie-rock super producer Chris Coady), its dark... Read More →

Niki & the Dove

Swedish duo Niki & the Dove make futuristic pop music full of human drama, that falls somewhere between The Knife and late 70s album rock, like Kate Bush or Fleetwood Mac. Singer Malin Dahlström has a smoky, emotive voice that provides warm contrast to their occasionally icy synth sound. A song like this spring’s “Tomorrow” just explodes from minimal electronic notes, becoming a swooning love ballad. Their singles have been all over the... Read More →

Chain and the Gang

Ian Svenonius–punk rocker, left-wing agitator, talk-show host, raconteur–has never been a shy, retiring figure. A lifer in in the Washington, D.C., rock underground, Svenonius spanned decades fronting radically theatrical groups such as Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up, and Weird War. His playfully funky new band, Chain and the Gang, uses the same sort of gospel-inspired, call-and-response audience participation tricks as The Make-Up did; keeps... Read More →

Dustin Wong

Dustin Wong, former guitarist for both the hyper-kinetic rock band Ponytail and the loose and crunchy experimentalists Ecstatic Sunshine, now gets lost in beautiful guitar noise all his own. In the studio, Wong sets his guitar through a labyrinthine pedal series: looping, distorting, delaying, oscillating his sounds until they form overwhelming, enveloping blankets of pure sound. As the dizzying process is based on his live playing technique... Read More →

Magik Markers

Balf Quarry, the 2009 record from Brooklyn-via-Connecticut band Magik Markers, stands as one of the messiest, dreamiest noise-rock records in recent memory. Pairing dark, damaged guitars to singer Elisa Ambrogio’s wild-eyed blues swagger, it was at turns ominous and beautiful, heavy but then suddenly fragile. They’ve given fans of pure experimental noise plenty of fearsome CD-Rs to digest over the years but that record and 2007′s BOSS... Read More →

Mucca Pazza

Given that they describe their 30-piece ensemble as a “circus punk marching band,” its safe to say that’s there’s no other act in world quite like Mucca Pazza!

Make Things not War

The rise of America, and of the West, was inextricably bound to the rise of making -- of lightbulbs, trains, cars, planes, even blue jeans. Then, somewhere down the line, the West stopped making. Now a wave of entrepreneurs is trying to bring making back -- not in a hundred factories, but in a million garages. They believe that DIY making can save our economies and our souls, and that it can make us smarter and happier and more connected to our fellow beings.

The 6 year "overnight" success - How We Built the Biggest Game in the World

    Beach Fossils

    Beach Fossils’ songwriter Dustin Payseur crafts carefully arranged songs focusing on life’s simple pleasures: sun, friends, maybe a quick trip out of town. Their debut EP earned rave reviews in 2o1o, and last year’s What a Pleasure EP deepened their guitar pop sound with cleaner production and a slightly melancholy sentiment. The past year has seen multiple members of the band split off into various side-projects: Cole Smith scratching... Read More →

    Sweden’s Jens Lekman brings an uncommon wit and humanity to his songs, detailing his vulnerabilities with a smooth baritone. First drawing attention for his 2004 debut, When I Said I Wanted to Be Your Dog, Lekman is the latest in a long line of songwriters too smart for their own good. He picks up the torch of slight disappointment passed over the decades from Scott Walker to Jonathan Richman to Morrissey to Stuart Murdoch. But the even keel of... Read More →

    The Felice Brothers

    The Felice Brothers, Ian and James, started playing music together at family barbeques in upstate New York, as perfect a start as any maker of back-porch Americana can have. After relocating to the big city, they found themselves playing powerful folk-rock in the pastoral environs of the 42nd Street subway station, and gigging around Greenwich Village (imagine Dylan, years later, bringing The Band back to play his old haunts).

    Ice Choir

    Kurt Feldman has been a big part of great Brooklyn bands for years, first as drummer for local indie-pop torchbearers The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, and then as guitarist for underloved and now disbanded digital shoegazers The Depreciation Guild. His new project, Ice Choir, is another stylistic switch, wildly successful in channeling the smooth lilt of the best FM-radio pop of the early-to-mid 80s.

    Zambri

    Twin sisters Christy Jo and Jessica Zambri have been collaborating on music since childhood, giving the abstract synth-pop of their 2011 debut EP Glossolalia quite a bit of time to gestate. With eerily synced vocal harmonies floating above a nearly apocalyptic clatter, their sound is both catchy and unsettling. Though their vision on record is tightly contained (made alone, but with the help of indie-rock super producer Chris Coady), its dark... Read More →

    Caveman

    Caveman have made a big name for themselves in a short time by infusing their sweet chamber-pop harmonies with forceful, layered rhythms (among other left turns). Made up of native New Yorkers and long-time friends, it’s not hard to figure out how the folk-pop stylists arrived at such a cohesive, immersive sound. Their 2011 debut, CoCo Beware, was both hushed and complex, drawing favorable comparisons to Grizzly Bear’s gentle textures... Read More →

    Frankie Rose

    Frankie Rose was a trend-setter in Brooklyn’s lo-fi rock scene for years before she went solo. The aura of assured cool she lent Crsytal Stilts, Vivian Girls, and Dum Dum Girls in their formative stages went a long way towards putting those bands on the map. She took the stage ,mallet in hand, and a dozen stand-up tom drummers seemed to appear overnight. And 2010′s self-titled Frankie Rose and the Outs proved that she could do 60s-inspired...

    Harkonen

    Harkonen came from the Pacific Northwestern hardcore scene of the late 90s, but their sound moved quickly beyond that genre’s basic moves. Given to intense metal riffing, ominously slow-paced tempos, and disconcerting ambient drones, the band fit in perfectly with the progressive Hydra Head label. Though they seemed to have called it quits in 2005, the band is reuniting for a string of exclusive east coast shows, with this year’s Northside... Read More →

    The Atlas Moth

    The Atlas Moth, a three-guitared, heavy-duty hydra out of Chicago, may have recorded their masterwork with 2011′s An Ache for the Distance. The record–a giant-sized amalgam of stoner metal, blues, deep sludge, and psychedelic rock–blasted through genre lines, reaching listeners (and critic’s year-end lists) across a wide spectrum. The band’s ultra-tight live show, with singer Stavros Giannnpoulos’ screaming fearfully about an... Read More →

    Buke and Gase

    Brooklyn’s Buke and Gase take their name from the home-modified instruments that define their unique sound. The “buke” is a six-string, baritone ukulele. The “gass” is a guitar and bass hybrid. (They recently changed its spelling in their name for pronunciation purposes.) As last heard on their second album, 2010′s Riposte, they stomped and rattled in a state of controlled chaos; singer Arone Dyer projecting bluesy, art-damaged... Read More →

And we don’t just mean in the context of a genre where it’s still novel to find a young girl from the strip-mall suburbs, but that her subject matter, which ranges from Bieber aggrandizing to misguided first boyfriends to Marvel Comics namedrops (she takes her name from one of history’s most awesome X-men), seems so authentically the product of a generation...

    Asobi Seksu

    Asobi Seksu (which means “playful sex” in Japanese slang) have become something of a New York City institution since 2004, when Yuki Chikudate and James Hanna started making their specific brand of dreamy guitar music. The super-melodic shoegaze of 2006′s Citrus earned wide critical acclaim, and follow-ups 2009′s Hush and 2011′s Fluorescence, only deepened the breadth of the band’s songwriting, as likely to draw on Japanese pop as...

    The Olivia Tremor Control

    The Olivia Tremor Control was formed in 1994 by Will Cullen Hart, Bill Doss, and Jeff Mangum, leftovers from the breakup of a short-lived band called Synthetic Flying Machine. As relocated Louisianans, they played a key role in the founding Athens, Georgia’s wildly influential Elephant 6 collective. When Mangum left the band to find his own fame as the singer/songwriter behind Neutral Milk Hotel, The Olivia Tremor Control became psych-pop... Read More →

    Grass Widow

    There are glorious left-turns in the songs of San Francisco trio Grass Widow, places where the overlapping, near-miss harmonies of their vocals cushion the jagged surf rock sounds made by their guitars. On record, the collusion of members Hannah Lew (bass), Ravon Mahon (guitar), and Lillian Maring (drums) is hive-minded in a peculiar way, their voices meeting up at unexpected corners as if it were purely natural. All members contribute vocals... Read More →

    Turbo Fruits

    Jonas Stein was still a member of the short-lived, but much-loved Nashville, Tennessee, pop-punk band Be Your Own Pet when he started Turbo Fruits. But, as is often the case, it’s his garage rock “side-project” that’s still going strong long after BYOP’s break up. Their 2009 record, Echo Kid, was a marvel of youthful energy; psych-pop riffs, frenzied drumming, and the odd whistled chorus. They’ve... Read More →

    Wise Blood

    Pittsburgh producer Chris Laufman is unusually gifted at taking bits of other people’s music and warping them, refitting them towards fiercely personal ends. As Wise Blood (the name referencing Flannery O’Connor’s first novel), he cuts up and recontextualizes samples to create Panda Bear-influenced pop, with mixed-up, braggadocious lyrics given urgent, hip-hop immediacy. Take a track like “B.I.G. E.G.O.” for example, how it uses a... Read More →

    Kingdom

    Kingdom is a Brooklyn-based producer and DJ whose signature sets and productions have been gathering a rabid following since he released his first mixtape in 2006.

    Dâm-Funk

    California producer Damon Riddick plays electro funk that would make George Clinton proud, bass lines that would clear Snoop Dogg’s head. Breaking into the business as a session keyboardist on hip-hop and New Jack Swing records, his work as Dâm-FunK expresses a deeper love for even deeper grooves. On the sprawling 2009 collection Toeachizown, Riddick perfectly emulated the sound of late 70s funk grappling with the dawn of neon synthesizer... Read More →

    Weeknight

    Comprised of New York based duo known simply as Holly and Andy, Weeknight create the sort of languid, obfuscous pop that swirls slightly menacingly through your eardrums. The interlocking male-female vocals contain both beauty and enigmatic characteristics, whether it be the bass heavy Devil or the glitchy Dark Light (Warrior), the crackling guitar lines and other-worldly lyrics elevate Weeknight above many of their synth-led...

    Amen Dunes

    Recording songs for himself in a Catskills cabin before he did it in an expatriate’s flat in Beijing, Amen Dunes’ Damon McMahon naturally stumbled upon a hypnotically personal style of psych pop–all quivering guitars, low moans, and primal rhythms. His 2009 album, DIA (cabin-recorded before his move overseas) blurred the margins between experimental folk and pop-drone. Last year’s follow-up, Through Donkey Jaw, found an even more hypnotic...

    Crystal Stilts

    Brooklyn’s Crystal Stilts were chief among of a new wave of lo-fi rockers that broke out of the borough in 2008 to wide notice and gigs all over the world. Combining the dour, sunglassed detachment of The Velvet Underground with the playfully energetic jangle of early 80s New Zealand indie-pop, the Stilts have remained single-minded aesthetes in an eclectic post-Internet underground. 2011 was maybe the band’s best year, and saw the release of...

    Vår

    From War to VÅR, there’s little change in pronunciation but a big change in definition. Meaning “spring” in their native Danish, VÅR is the new name of the band formed by Iceage singer Elias Rønnenfelt and Posh Isolation label head Lohke Rahbeck (a singer himself for the band Sexdrome). The change seems more meaningful than just a move to differentiate themselves from the 70s funk band who used “War” first. As the project of two... Read More →

    Wymond Miles

    Though probably best known as a guitarist for the excellent, prolific San Francisco garage-rock band The Fresh and Onlys, Wymond Miles is a formidable songwriter in his own right. His solo EP Earth Has Doors was a promising tidbit, but the soon-to-be-released Under the Pale Moon, reveals a New Wave melancholy less overtly rambunctious than F & Os, but possessed by similarly inventive pop songwriting. It’s one of 2012 best debut records.

    Starfucker

    “Starfucker” is a somewhat silly name that the Portland electro-pop band who use it have thought about ditching more than once. After using it to self-title their candy-colored psych debut in 2008, they toyed with PYRAMID, then Pyramidd, before dropping the vowels for a slightly more chase STRFKR, and then landing back where they started. It works somehow, though not in the usual cheap, fame-whoring context. Their bold, swirling keyboard... Read More →

    Future of the Left

    There was a McLusky-sized hole left in the chest of punk rock when the Welsh trio broke up in 2005, but it didn’t take long for Future of the Left to spackle it in. Fighting on with notably aggressive McLusky drummer Jack Egglestone and singer Andy “Falco” Falkous’ furious delivery of hilariously sour lyrics, FOTL are rock heroes we need now. On the band’s first two records, Curses (2007) flirted with heavy synth-pop where Travels with... Read More →

    Bronx rap group Ultramagnetic MC’s were in operation for two years before their 1986 single “Ego Trippin’” got them the world’s notice. It was the first hip-hop song to sample the drum break from Melvin Bliss’ “Synthetic Substitution,” a seminal snippet of music that would later be used in both Naughty by Nature’s “O.P.P.” and Wu-Tang’s “Bring Da Ruckus” (among many others).

    We Are Cave Creatures | Dir: Chris King, Whit Bernard, Adam Pogoff, Clay Franklin | DVD | 10:18 | USA | 2011 | English (no dialogue)

    In April 2011, Moviehouse asked composers Whit Bernard & Adam Pogoff to compose and record a film soundtrack for a movie that did not exist. Once, complete Moviehouse then handed the soundtrack over to animator Chris King.

Chris created a movie, but then Moviehouse removed the soundtrack and gave the now silent film to a second composer Clay Franklin.

We Are Cave Creatures is both versions of the film, first with the original soundtrack it was created from and second with the soundtrack that was made composed to the film.

    Wolfy has embarked on a journey of self-discovery. “I want to eat the world!”- he says, but how is still undetermined; yet his mind is set out for an adventure. Joining Wolfy, we sail with him on what is to be an enchanting, musically, challenging and endearing path. Amongst the fanciful characters Wolfy meets on this path there is an Italian one-winged bird and a magical French dragon; much joy, words of wisdom and questionable tricks are to be presented throughout his journey, and Wolfy confronts them with his gentle yet curious way, with the help of a long lost friend. A rare moment, for those who are young at heart.

    Despite a lack of obvious similarities between Siberia and Tokyo, a thriving model industry connects these distant regions. GIRL MODEL follows two protagonists involved in this industry: Ashley, a deeply ambivalent model scout who scours the Siberian countryside looking for fresh faces to send to the Japanese market, and one of her discoveries, Nadya, a thirteen year-old plucked from the Siberian countryside and dropped into the center of Tokyo with promises of a profitable career. After Ashley's initial discovery of Nadya, the two rarely meet again, but their stories are inextricably bound. As Nadya's optimism about rescuing her family from their financial difficulties grows, her dreams contrast against Ashley's more jaded outlook about the industry's corrosive influence.

There’s a steady stream of beautiful women coming in and out of his posh home in the hills, and every night he makes his way through the hottest nightspots for a party that never ends.

    A divorcée with a five-year-old son, Zach has become a master at seducing women without ever getting too close. But all that’s about to change — he’s met a girl he calls “Crazy Eyes” (Madeline Zima), and she’s not like anyone he’s ever met before. Flirty but withholding, intelligent but damaged, she’s the one woman Zach can’t have, so naturally he wants her above all others.

    While Zach’s hard-partying lifestyle — aided and abetted by his bartender pal Dan (Jake Busey) — threatens to go off the rails, family concerns begin to play a major role in Zach’s life. While his ex-wife becomes more financially demanding, Zach grows closer to their son (Blake Garrett Rosenthal), finding stability and maturity in his role as a father that’s absent from the rest of his life.

    And as Zach begins to embrace fatherhood, his own father (Ray Wise) becomes seriously ill — which in turn leads to Zach’s mother (Valerie Mahaffey) having a mental breakdown. Will the quest for love and the responsibilities of family life help this poor little rich boy become a man?

    Minka | Dir: Davina Pardo | DVD | 16min | 2011 | USA |

    A film about place and memory, a farmhouse in Japan, and the lives of the people who called it home.

    Unfinished Spaces | Dir. Alysa Nahmias and Benjamin Murray | HD | Color | 86 min | 2011 |  USA | English and Spanish with subtitles

    Cuba’s ambitious National Art Schools project, designed by three young artists in the wake of Castro’s Revolution, is neglected, nearly forgotten, then ultimately 
rediscovered as a visionary architectural masterpiece.

    In 1961, three young, visionary architects were commissioned by Fidel Castro and Che Guevara to create Cuba’s National Art Schools on the grounds of a 
former golf course in Havana, Cuba. Construction of their radical designs began 
immediately and the school’s first classes soon followed. Dancers, musicians and
 artists from all over the country reveled in the beauty of the schools, but as the 
dream of the Revolution quickly became a reality, construction was abruptly 
halted and the architects and their designs were deemed irrelevant in the prevailing
 political climate. Forty years later the schools are in use, but remain unfinished 
and decaying. Castro has invited the exiled architects back to finish their
unrealized dream.

    Unfinished Spaces features intimate footage of Fidel Castro, showing his devotion to creating a worldwide showcase for art, and it also documents the struggle and
 passion of three revolutionary artists whose inspiration and ideals could ultimately
 destroy them.

    Impolex tells the story of Tyrone S., a United States soldier in Operation Paperclip, the mission to locate and retrieve German rockets and rocket science after the end of World War II. Tyrone is tasked with finding what he believes are the last V-2’s. Lost in the woods of an undefined European country, people from Tyrone’s past begin to appear in unusual ways, bearing strange tidings. A loved one he abandoned for the war is especially prominent in Tyrone’s journey, as is a fellow soldier and a mysterious man with tidings of the present and the future that are not yet known to Tyrone.

    Impolex is an unjustifiable blend of the bare bones realism of John Ford’s WWII documentaries and the glorious stupidity of Abbot and Costello.

    The Zone  | Dir. Joe Swanberg  | Starring: Lawrence Michael Levine, Sophia Takal, Kate Lyn Sheil, Kentucker Audley, Joe Swanberg | Blu-Ray | 71min | 2011 | USA | English

    With this sexually explicit meta-movie, the prolific and influential Midwest-based filmmaker Joe Swanberg concludes his trilogy of self-reflexive films that began with Silver Bullets and continued in Art History. Another look at the inter-personal relationships that develop among cast and crew during the filmmaking process, The Zone's first half is an ultra low-budget reworking of Pasolini's classic Teorema: an outsider (Kentucker Audley) visits the home of a young couple and their friend (Green cast members Lawrence Michael Levine, Sophia Takal, and Kate Lyn Sheil) and proceeds to seduce all of them. The fourth wall recedes in the second half, revealing a filmmaker-in-crisis (played by Swanberg, naturally) as he attempts to navigate the treacherous terrain of directing sex scenes featuring actors who are his personal friends. Swanberg's disarmingly loose and improvisational style is the stamp of an artist who is genuinely curious about how and why some movies are made. His work continually invites the audience to join in on the artistic process and go beyond just watching.

    Arabian Drift, Unclear Holocaust presented by Spectacle Theater

    Arabian Drift | Dir: Tony Lowe | DVD | 50min | 2011 | USA | Farsi, Arabic

    Arabian Drift is a collage film devoted to car culture in the Middle East.  In the spirit of Tony Lowe and Akiva Saunder's VID WWWORLD series at Spectacle Theater, seemingly disparate media (cell phone footage from file sharing sites, videos found on Arabic language message boards, bootleg Islamic DVDs) provide a clashing narrative stream via visceral editing techniques.  Suicidal 'drifting' rallies held in the desert, gold plated sports cars in Dubai, road skating, two wheel SUV ballets and more serve as poetic frames of reference for thinking about the internet, oil, Islam, sexuality and death.

    Unclear Holocaust | Dir: The Anti-Banality Union | DVD | 65min | 2011 | USA | Amerikan with some Arabic

    When I first heard of Unclear Holocaust, the debut project of nebulous situationist art collective The Anti-Banality Union, my initial impression was that these impious troublemakers would fully deserve the inevitable fatwa that will be vexed upon them. However, after viewing part of the work, which reconstitutes scenes from over 50 Hollywood New York City disaster porn films into a more or less coherent narrative, I am pleased to report it is a rather damning yet thoughtful–and dare I say hilarious and enjoyable?–reminder of how bad Hollywood had pushed this scenario.- Screen Slate

    Boy I Am, presented by Women Make Movies

    Boy I Am | Dir. Sam Feder and Julie Hollar | 70min | USA | 2006 | English

    While female-to-male transgender visibility has recently exploded in this country, conversations about trans issues in the lesbian community often run into resistance from the many queer women who view transitioning as a "trend" or as an anti-feminist act that taps into male privilege. BOY I AM is a feature-length documentary that begins to break down that barrier and promote dialogue about trans issues through a look at the experiences of three young transitioning FTMs in New York City—Nicco, Norie and Keegan—as they go through major junctures in their transitions, as well as through the voices of lesbians, activists, and theorists who raise and address the questions that many people have but few openly discuss.

    Is transitioning a trend? Is it healthy? Anti-feminist? What does it mean for a young person in the lesbian
    community to become male, both for themselves and for the community? And how are these questions
    affected by race and class?

    The film’s historical framework insists on a coherent, patient, and inclusive discussion that concentrates on a range of gendered experience. Situating these struggles and stories in the context of queer and feminist struggles, BOY I AM presents an empowering chronicle of queer resistance that challenges all viewers to rethink their concepts of activism and identity.

    Flooding With Love For The Kid, Northside DIY Competition Special Presentation

    Flooding With Love For The Kid | Dir. Zachary Oberzan | DVD | 107min | USA | 2007 | English

    Meticulously adapted from David Morrell’s novel First Blood, which introduced the world to a young man named Rambo and his one-man war against a small town and its sheriff, FLOODING WITH LOVE FOR THE KID is in itself a one-man cinematic war.  Shot entirely for $96 in a 220 square foot studio apartment in Manhattan, it was adapted, directed, filmed, acted, designed, and edited by one man.  Actor and filmmaker Zachary Oberzan, performing all two dozen characters himself, has created a monumental testament to the animal ingenuity and triumphant spirit of the lone artist with no money, no resources, no nothing.  A wild, violent, compassionate ride through the back hills and caves of Kentucky, this film and its maker embrace their extreme limitations, and in doing so, ultimately transcend them. As Rambo and Sheriff Teasle hunt each other in the woods, the audience is forced to redefine the very nature of “suspension of disbelief."  How and why this story is told is a statement far larger than any story itself. This film asks the questions, "What do you need to make a good film? How much money, how many actors, how much space?  Can you make a great narrative film with nothing but your love of the work?" Completely transgressive yet action-packed and heart-breaking, FLOODING WITH LOVE FOR THE KID destroys all previous notions of low-budget filmmaking with a determination lifted from Rambo’s own infuriated rampage.

Photographer and filmmaker Avery Willard’s homemade queer films have gone unseen since the 1970s.

The result is a wholesale dismantling of auteurism, cinematic space, and the intellectual propriety of The Rolling Stones, Ltd., whose songs—and music of other genres including early rock, soul, doo wop, rhythm and blues, Cazone Napoletana, opera and salsa—are now performed variously by wayward narcoleptics, fried teenagers, amateur tenors, Polish pre-teen beauty pageant contestants and people testing out new keyboards, among others. It is a joyous paean to egalitarianism and the enduring, irrepressible folk underpinnings of tight-assed corporate culture. The Scorsesean 'needle drop' style of scoring with pop music established a whole new branch of the film industry—a mammoth bureaucracy of rights, licensing, music supervisors, clearance coordinators and entertainment lawyers and attendant opportunities for marketing and brand synergy between corporate film and music; Tough Guys is a modest attempt to send it reeling.

    Ai WeiWei: Never Sorry | Dir. Alison Klayman | 91min | USA | 2012 | English and Mandarin with English Subtitles

    Ai Weiwei is China's most famous international artist, and its most outspoken domestic critic. Against a backdrop of strict censorship and an unresponsive legal system, Ai expresses himself and organizes people through art and social media. In response, Chinese authorities have shut down his blog, beat him up, bulldozed his newly built studio, and held him in secret detention.

    AI WEIWEI: NEVER SORRY is the inside story of a dissident for the digital age who inspires global audiences and blurs the boundaries of art and politics. First-time director Alison Klayman gained unprecedented access to Ai while working as a journalist in China. Her detailed portrait provides a nuanced exploration of contemporary China and one of its most compelling public figures.

    The Redemption of General Butt Naked, presented by BAM

    The Redemption of General Butt Naked | Dir. Eric Strauss and Daniele Anastasion | 85min | USA | 2011 | English

    Joshua Milton Blahyi --aka General Butt Naked --was a ruthless and feared warlord during Liberia's 14-year civil war. Today, he has renounced his violent past and reinvented himself as a Christian evangelist on a journey of self-proclaimed transformation. Blahyi travels the nation of Liberia as a preacher, seeking out those he once victimized in search of an uncertain forgiveness. But in the end, are some crimes beyond the pale of forgiveness?

    Dubbed "General Butt Naked" for fighting with nothing more than an AK-47 and a pair of leather shoes, Blahyi believed he possessed supernatural powers that made him impervious to bullets. The General and his army of child soldiers are said to have killed thousands during Liberia's horrific civil war.

    Following a dramatic conversion to Christianity, the General abruptly laid down his weapons in 1996, leaving behind his soldiers, his country and a war that would rage for another seven years.

    Today, Blahyi is on a quest for redemption: facing those he once terrorized, preaching where he once murdered, and trying to rebuild the shattered lives of those he commanded during the war. For five years, filmmakers Eric Strauss and Daniele Anastasion tracked his often troubling path up-close, finding both the genuine and disconcerting in Blahyi's efforts. The film forces us to question the very nature of what true, meaningful reconciliation looks like in a country where justice has not been available.

    At every turn, THE REDEMPTION OF GENERAL BUTT NAKED asks viewers to confront hard questions about both the power and limits of forgiveness in a nation searching for healing and justice. Whatever you make of him -- liar or madman, charlatan or genuine repentant -- you will never meet another character as challenging as Joshua Milton Blahyi, General Butt Naked.

    Figure Father and Puppet, presented by Filmwax

    Figure Father  | Dir. Andrew Ellis | 8:57 | USA | English

    In January of 2011, I set out to make a short film which could shed light on our country’s job crisis through the story of an ex-convict searching for a job. I was introduced to Pedro through a friend who worked as a fatherhood counselor for ex-convicts in Harlem. Pedro was 49, looking for a job in construction, and willing to share his story with me. With multiple assaults, drug offenses, and two homicides on his record, it wasn’t likely that the outcome of my film was going to be positive, but I knew beneath his hardships his charisma and heart would reach people.

    We met for the first time on a snowy day in Harlem. Sitting face to face in a Jamaican restaurant on 125th street, Pedro pointed a chicken wing at me and repeated, “God will hold your hand, but the devil is waiting for you to fall”. This was the first time I’d heard his mantra, and I thought he was talking about his job search.

    We became friends over the following weeks through long walks and boxing lessons. In that time he didn’t make it to one job interview given all the complications of transferring medicaid, welfare, and job transcripts from his halfway house to his three quarter house. I wasn’t sure what aspect of his story I could actually convey on film until the day we took a trip to where he grew up, the projects of Hoboken. It was there that I met Tony, his twenty one year old son. I did the math on the back of my PATH train ticket home to realize that Pedro had only been out of jail for four years of Tony’s entire life. It hit me that while this man was in need of a job, his desire to become a father to his son was far more important to both of us.

    Over the following months I filmed them box, Tony feeling grateful for the time with his father, Pedro feeling excited that his son might become a professional boxer. All the while I spent time with each of them individually, digging up repressed memories in their relationship, and hitting walls where certain memories had been permanently blocked out. Pedro was severely abused as a child, and raised by the streets. Tony’s father was never there, and also raised by the streets. Coming from a home with two loving parents I proceeded into this foreign territory with caution and sympathy.

    Tony became a father during the course of shooting and the training sessions ceased. They stopped spending as much time together, and Pedro refocused on getting a job. This film is a window into a brief moment in their lives in which a new chapter in fatherhood began. Since the completion of the film I connected Pedro with a former prison chaplain who counsels at a church near his home in Harlem. He is still jobless but is on good terms with his son. Tony still lives in Hoboken and his baby girl is nearly six months old.

     

    Puppet  |  Dir. David Soll | 74min | USA | 2010 | English

     Synopsis:

    Puppet is a feature-length documentary that weaves together a broad look at the fraught history of American puppetry (its marginalization as children's theater and its sudden explosion as high art) with an intimate thread following Dan Hurlin, a downtown artist who is creating a complex puppet work about Mike Disfarmer - an eccentric, Depression-era photographer. Dan has just recovered from a scorching New York Times review, which forced his last show out of theaters prematurely. Now he faces a wider backlash against puppetry, suggesting an eerie parallel between himself and his new puppet-subject - an outsider artist whose stunning body of work was very nearly lost forever.

    Ebony Goddess: Queen of Ilê Aiyê and The Other Side of the Water: the Journey of a Haitian Rara Band in Brooklyn, presented by Third World Newsreel

    Ebony Goddess: Queen of Ilê Aiyê  | Dir. Carolina Moraes-liu | 20min | Brazil | 2010 | Portuguese with English Subtitles

    Ebony Goddess: Queen of Ilê Aiyê follows three women competing to be the carnival queen of Ilê Aiyê, a prominent and controversial Afro-Brazilian group with an all-black membership. The selection is based on Afro-centric notions of beauty, in counterpoint to prevailing standards of beauty in Brazil, a country famous for slim supermodels and plastic surgery. Contestants for the title of Ebony Goddess dress in flowing African-style garments, gracefully performing traditional Afro-Brazilian dances to songs praising the beauty of black women.

    The Other Side of the Water | Dir: Jeremy Robins and Magali Damas | DVD | 52min | USA, Haiti | 2010 | English and Haitian Creole (with English subtitles)

    Part carnival, part vodou ceremony, and part grassroots protest, Haitian “Rara” is one of the most breathtaking and contested forms of music in the Americas. The Other Side of the Water follows a group of young immigrants who take this ancient music from the hills of Haiti and reinvent it on the streets of Brooklyn. The documentary tells the story of an unlikely band that comes to speak for a larger community, and a music that manages to create a new meaning of home in the Diaspora.

    With the guidance of Temple University social worker Harold Haskins, a group of African American teenagers and young men in Philadelphia made this hybrid documentary/dramatization of their lives in the 12th and Oxford Street gang.  Shot in an original, naïve style, this unique film was distributed on the 16mm educational market.  The Librarian of Congress named The Jungle to the National Film Registry in 2009.

    A chicken dreams of heaven, death and resurrection. New Orleans-based animator Helen Hill became part of the Orphan Film Project in 2005, after most of her possessions were destroyed or damaged by Hurricane Katrina floodwaters. When she was tragically killed in 2007, age 36, a spontaneous collective formed to preserve and restore her work: people from NYU, the University of South Carolina (where “Orphans” began), Harvard Film Archive, the Center for Home Movies, BB Optics, and Colorlab. Within two months, 9 of her films were fully preserved and new prints back on the festival circuit. Preservation work on her large collection of Super 8mm home movies continues. Scratch and Crow was added to the National Film Registry as an exemplar of the student film.

    A journeyman documentary director at China's Central Newsreel and Documentary Film Studio went off book to document this expressive display of a troupe of motorcycle stunt riders. Because the film was made without official permission, Chinese authorities broke up the unit and did not sanction the film. The 16mm print that came to the University of South Carolina as part of the Chinese Film Collection gifted by the Embassy may be the only one that survives.
