DocumentaryIn 1959, a government employee named Richard Oyler, living in the tiny desert town of Lone Pine, California, asked world-famous modern architect Richard Neutra to design his modest family home. To Oyler’s surprise, Neutra agreed. Thus began an unlikely friendship that led to the design and construction of an iconic mid-century modern masterpiece.

DocumentaryMystical death curses, visions of Messiah, an important world political figure under threat, religious leaders in shock, a cryptic kabbalistic death note . . . The story is shocking – the story is true – the story is still unfolding . . . In the fall of 2005, a 108-year-old rabbi, the most venerated rabbinical Jewish leader in Israel, proclaimed that he knew the name of the real Messiah. He insisted that he knew where the Messiah was and when He was going to reveal Himself to the world. Rabbi Kaduri claimed that he had personally seen the Messiah in a vision. But . . . there were just a couple catches: Kaduri declared that a particular and famed world leader had to die before the Messiah appeared publicly. Also, the name of the Messiah was to be mysteriously sealed in a message. Instructions were given to lock the
IndependentThe ubiquitous pink ribbons of breast cancer philanthropy - and the hand-in-hand marketing of brands and products associated with that philanthropy — permeates our culture, providing assurance that we are engaged in a successful battle against this insidious disease. But the campaign obscures the reality and facts of breast cancer – more and more women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year, and face the same treatment options they did 40 years ago. Yet women are also the most influential market group, buying 80 percent of consumer products and making most major household purchasing decisions. So then who really benefits from the pink ribbon campaigns — the cause or the company? And what if the very companies and products that profit from their association have actually contributed to the problem? In showing
DocumentaryThere is nothing that has been pondered more by mankind and nothing more divisive to the human race than the question...Is there a God? Did we come from the mind of a creator, or from absolutely nothing? Many have misunderstood or created concepts of what God actually means believing it to be the one defined by Christians, Jews or Muslims or other religious belief systems of the world. But in a world where miracles occur daily, the void between belief and reality is indicative of the troubled planet we live on and it has become apparent that the truth and understanding of our inner-selves is, in the end, our ultimate quest and perhaps it’s a simple question of faith.

Music Feature FilmsCursive II, a sequel to Cursive, had its international premiere at the opening of the Melbourne International Arts Festival, right after its world premiere in Taipei in September 2003, where it won both the Critics’ Award and the Festival Patrons’ Award. After studying Chinese calligraphy masterpieces, Lin Hwai-min found, despite the differences in styles, all the brush works share one common element: the focused energy with which the calligraphers “danced” during writing. He asked Cloud Gate dancers to improvise by facing blown-up images of calligraphy and created Cursive. Although both works were inspired by the aesthetics of Chinese calligraphy, Cursive II is drastically different from its forerunner. Chinese believe there are five shades of black ink. While Cursive emphasizes the dark blackness with lots o
DocumentaryREQUIEM FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM is the definitive discourse with Noam Chomsky, widely regarded as the most important intellectual alive, on the defining characteristic of our time - the deliberate concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a select few.
