Great Bear Rainforest 2001

A one-hour documentary about the breathtaking beauty of British Columbia's Great Bear Rainforest, and its imminent destruction by the logging industry. The two-million hectare Great Bear Wilderness is the largest intact area of ancient temperate rain forest remaining in the world. A small but dedicated group of people, working through a handful of grass-roots organizations, are lined up against forces determined to destroy the integrity of this unique biological wellspring. Only 0.2 percent of all the land on Earth ever supported temperate rain forest. Half of that is already gone. A quarter of what is left is in British Columbia. Of the province's original 353 rainforest watersheds, only 69 are intact. What remains are under direct threat by commercial interests. Logging companies, armed with permits from the government responsible for British Columbia, intend to reap this natural resource by using totally-destructive, clear-cut logging techniques over the next 5-10 years. The forests are being logged primarily for export to the United States, Japan, and Europe. The documentary features spectacular and extremely rare footage of the Kermode bear, also known as the Spirit Bear (more rare than the Chinese Panda). It is a very rare sub-species of black bear that has pure white and can only be found in The Great Bear Rainforest. We meet the First Nation people that have called the rain coast home for a thousand generations, consider the land a sacred living temple, nature's gift to humanity. The documentary tells the story through the eyes of the Academy-award nominated actor, James Cromwell. Through his visit to this area, we connect with the magnificent beauty of The Great Bear Wilderness. A rich coastal marine environment combined with a mild, humid climate makes this area a true natural paradise. We see splendid roaring waterfalls, meadows carpeted with wildflowers, moss-covered stands of ancient trees, and rocky unspoiled coastlines. From up close, we watch grizzlies, eagles, black bears, and a pack of grey wolves fatten themselves on salmon that fill watershed streams in Summer, and early Fall. The temperate rainforest on the West Coast of British Columbia in Canada, has been characterized as the most biologically productive land on Earth. Thousand year old cedar trees, along with Douglas Fir, and Sitka Spruce nearly three hundred feet tall, reign over a landscape that is home to thousands of species of plants, birds, insects, and other animals. Streams that teem with salmon returning to spawn support well-fed populations of grizzly bears, orca, whales, black bears, and eagles. The Great Bear Rainforest documentary is a warning beacon revealing the imminent threat to one of Earth's most important biological treasures.

AlphaGo 2017

With more board configurations than there are atoms in the universe, the ancient Chinese game of 'Go' has long been considered a grand challenge for artificial intelligence. On March 9, 2016, the worlds of Go and artificial intelligence collided in South Korea for an extraordinary best-of-five-game competition, coined The Google DeepMind Challenge Match. Hundreds of millions of people around the world watched as a legendary Go master took on an unproven AI challenger for the first time in history. Directed by Greg Kohs with an original score by Academy Award nominee, Hauschka, AlphaGo chronicles a journey from the halls of Cambridge, through the backstreets of Bordeaux, past the coding terminals of DeepMind in London, and, ultimately, to the seven-day tournament in Seoul. As the drama unfolds, more questions emerge: What can artificial intelligence reveal about a 3000-year-old game? What can it teach us about humanity?

Audrie & Daisy 2016

A sobering documentary showing teenage girls in the U.S. being victims of sexual assault by their male classmates/friends. It also covers the unfortunate trend that the system tends to minimize or even dismiss these cases, resulting in the victimized girls not receiving justice. To make matters worse, these girls often ended up getting bullied (both in school as well as online) for being rape victims.

They are then handed them over the American forces who transport them to the prison camps at the Guantanamo Bay base in Cuba.

Barça Dreams 2015

BARÇA DREAMS is the most complete documentary ever to be made about the story of FC Barcelona, one of the top soccer clubs in the world, highly praised for its legendary figures like Leo Messi, the best footballer of all time, the prestigious coach Pep Guardiola, or the man who revolutionized this sport (soccer and football are used interchangeably throughout the entire text) with his innovative vision: Johan Cruyff. The film narrates the soccer club's long road to fame and acknowledgement, culminating in the generation of players of the stature of Leo Messi, Xavi Hernández and Andrés Iniesta, all of them trained in the famous school of La Masía. It also reveals the secrets of a powerful soccer club that causes admiration worldwide and is closely linked to the Catalan identity, making the motto "Barça: more than a club" a reality. It is a genuine emotional voyage to the heart and soul of the club which Joan Gamper, an undisputable sportsman, founded over a hundred years ago. It rekindles the dreams and ambitions of a long list of footballers who sought glory in one of the most admired soccer clubs in recent times.

Next Goal Wins 2014

In 2001, the tiny Pacific island of American Samoa suffered a world record 31-0 defeat at the hands of Australia, garnering headlines across the world as the worst soccer team on the planet. A decade after that humiliating night, they remain rooted to the bottom of FIFA's World rankings, having scored only twice in seventeen years. They have lost every competitive game they have ever played. Against this backdrop of serial underachievement, the team face the daunting prospect of a qualification campaign for the upcoming 2014 World Cup in Brazil. It would take a miracle-maker or a madman to turn the team's fortunes around - and in maverick Dutch coach Thomas Rongen the islanders somehow find both. As a loan appointment from the mighty U.S. Soccer Federation, with experience of playing alongside football greats like George Best and Johann Cruyff, Rongen is completely unprepared for what greets him on the island - in his own words it is "by far the lowest standard" of football he's ever seen, with only half of his team even fit enough to play a whole game. A lack of athleticism aside, Rongen's ailing squad contains the emotionally scarred goalkeeper who conceded 31 goals against Australia a decade earlier and a member of Samoa's third gender, the fa'fafine, who lives 24/7 as a woman. To complicate matters further the team's best player has been posted 6000 miles away by the US military. With the team about to embark on a grueling World Cup Qualification campaign, Rongen has just one month to transform this ragtag of losers into a winning team - and perhaps learn a little about himself along the way.
