Product Description



King Corn - Engrossing and eye-opening, KING CORN is a fun and crusading journey into the digestive tract of our fast food nation where one ultra-industrial, pesticide-laden, heavily-subsidized commodity dominates the food pyramid from top to bottom corn. Fueled by curiosity and a dash of naiveté, college buddies Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis return to their ancestral home of Greene, Iowa to figure out how the modest kernel conquered America.



With the help of real farmers, powerful fertilizer, government aid, and genetically modified seeds, the friends manage to grow one acre of corn. Along the way, they unlock the hidden truths about America s modern food system.



A graceful and frequently humorous film that captures the idiosyncrasies of its characters and never hectors (Salon), KING CORN shows how and why whenever you eat a hamburger or drink a soda, you re really consuming ... corn.

BLUE VINYL , winner of the Excellence in Cinematography Award at Sundance, BLUE VINYL is a deeply personal and vital exposé that has been applauded as scary and hilarious (Elvis Mitchell, The New York Times)



Skeptical of her parents decision to re-side their home with vinyl siding (polyvinyl chloride or PVC) Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Judith Helfand set out with award-winning cinematographer/co-director Daneil B. Gold in search of the truth about vinyl, one of the fastest selling plastics in America. With a deep appreciation for irony, a great deal of chutzpah, and a piece of blue vinyl siding firmly in hand, Helfand and Gold travel from suburban Long Island to the vinyl-manufacturing capital of Louisiana and as far as Venice, Italy--where 31 former executives from a PVC-producing company are on trial for manslaughter.



Artfully balancing the horror with the humor, unexpected twists with unbelievable turns, BLUE VINYL is a sobering, shockingly funny, uniquely personal exploration into what it takes to be a really educated consumers.



Product Description



Crude Awakening - An unforgettable and shocking wake-up call, A CRUDE AWAKENING offers the rock-solid argument that the era of cheap oil is in the past. Relentless and clear-eyed, this intensively-researched film drills deep into the uncomfortable realities of a world that is both addicted to fossil fuels and blissfully unaware of the looming peak oil crisis.



Drawing on an international cast of maverick energy experts and thinkers, directors Basel Gelpke and Ray McCormack debunk the conventional wisdom that oil production will continue to climb, and instead stare bleakly at a planet facing economic meltdown and conflict over its most valuable resource. Featuring a haunting score by Phillip Glass and a fascinating array of rare archival footage, the film explores oil s rocky relationship with human progress in locales ranging from ancient Baku, Azerbaijan to dusty oilpatch town McCamey, Texas.



Amidst a dark and disturbing vision of our future, A CRUDE AWAKENING hints at a humbler way of life built around sustainability and alternative energy, providing a visually stunning, boldly prophetic testament which provokes not just thought but action.
