Great ECLECTIC films of all genres, every OTHER Monday …



October 27, 2008

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

What do a Transylvanian transvestite, a cryogenically-preserved motorbiker and a Frankenstein's monster wearing golden underpants all have in common? They're all crucial parts of Rocky Horror Picture Show, the comedy cult classic which is at once hysterical, indispensable and truly disturbing. A story of creation, love, hate, adventure, and, most of all, SEX. Happy Halloween @ The Yoga Barn!

Winged Migration (2001) see poster

The cameras of Jacques Perrin fly with migratory birds. The search for food, good weather, and a place to hatch young takes this annual cycle of stamina across continents and oceans. A visual “birds-eye view”.

Baraka (1992) see poster

Without words, cameras show us the world, with an emphasis not on "where," but on "what's there."

Roger & Me (1989)- see poster

A documentary about the closure of General Motors' plant at Flint, Michigan, which resulted in the loss of 30,000 jobs. Details the attempts of filmmaker Michael Moore to get an interview with GM CEO Roger Smith.

 

Salaam Bombay! (1988) see poster

The story of Krishna, Manju, Chillum and other children on the streets of Bombay. Sometimes they get a temporary job selling tea, but mostly they beg for money and keep out of the way of the police.

What the Bleep Do We Know?! (2004) see poster

Demands a freedom of view and greatness of thought so far unknown, indeed, not even dreamed of since Copernicus. This film plunges you into a world where everything is alive, and reality is changed by every thought.

Rivers & Tides (2001) see poster

A portrait of Andy Goldsworthy, an artist whose specialty is ephemeral sculptures made from elements of nature.

Naked States (2000) see poster

Photographer Spencer Tunick travels the U.S. in search of volunteers to pose nude for his outlaw photo-shoots, all of them done out in public and without legal permits. This documentary chronicles Tunick's logistic nightmares, brushes with the law, and the free-spirit-volunteers who discard their inhibitions for his artistic vision.

My Architect (2003) see poster

Nathaniel Kahn's search for himself via the legacy of his famous Architect father, Louis Kahn, dead since 1974. A beautiful tale with much deeper meaning with regard to the importance of love, loss, family and perhaps more importantly, our life's work.

1 Giant Leap see poster

It is increasingly rare to come across a project that genuinely defies description, where no pigeonhole will do.

1 Giant Leap is a unique project for the 21st century which fuses words, sounds, rhythms and images from across the globe to celebrate the creative diversity of musicians, storytellers, authors, filmmakers, artists and thinkers from cultures around the world. The results illustrate breathtaking artistic and cultural diversity with a clear message of unity running throughout.

1 Giant Leap represents is a completely new genre of filmmaking somewhere between documentary and pop video, a music-based time capsule of the planet earth at the turn of the 21st century.

 

Loose Change see poster

“Loose Change” is a documentary that claims the events of 11th September 2001 were orchestrated by the government of the United States of America with the object of allowing said government more draconian controls over its citizenry while establishing a justification for war.

If you haven't seen this film, you need to for two reasons. One, it's an internet phenomenon that's surprisingly well-done. Two, you really should take a look and decide for yourself if the American people need to be more vocal and ask more questions. The claims from “Loose Change” seem wildly far-fetched. But the really crazy thing is, what if they're not?

Naked in Ashes see poster

The clash of ancient traditions and modern civilization is at the center of "Naked in Ashes," an inspirational and cautionary film that documents the hermetic lives of a handful of Indian yogis.

Covered in ashes that symbolize life's impermanence, the Hindu holy men, amid the chaos of their urban surroundings, stand out like ghosts from the past that they may soon become.

Who Killed the Electric Car? see poster

A look into the anticipated introduction of electric cars in the mid '90s to their mysterious recall a few years later. The documentary talks to former electric car owners, government personnel and others while examining the automobile industry and the laws around it. Why was this clean, efficient, sleek yet affordable vehicle pushed from the market in the midst of global warming and rising gasoline prices?

Wordplay see poster

Wordplay is a documentary about people and the puzzles they love. Genial to a fault, it offers painfully non-judgmental profiles of the fanatics that inhabit this subculture … people who dedicate themselves to solving puzzles in record time and winning crossword championships.

The Tsavo Story see poster

The story of one man's vision, David Sheldrake, the founder of Kenya's Tsavo National Park, to create a haven for orphaned animals of all species, especially elephants and rhinos. Through preservation, protection and education, The David Sheldrake Wildlife Trust aims to create a Kenya where animals and humans live in equilibrium and harmony.

 

The Corporation

Since the late 18th century American legal decision that the business corporation is legally a person, it has become a dominant economic, political and social force around the globe. This film takes an in-depth psychological examination of the corporate model through various case studies. It illustrates that this type of "person" typically acts like a dangerously destructive psychopath without conscience. We see the profound threat this has for our world and our future, but also how people with courage, intelligence and determination can stop it.

Super Size Me (2004)

Why are Americans so fat? Two words: fast food. What would happen if you ate nothing but fast food for an entire month? Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock does just that and embarks on the most perilous journey of his life.

Ring of Fire / Lawrence Blair

Film #1 – Myths, Monsters & Hobbits / 50 mins
Lawrence takes us on a quest for some of those strange Indonesian creatures believed to be the origin of such international myths as unicorns, fire-breathing dragons, fire-dwelling phoenixes, forest elves and goblins. On the trail of the orang pendek, or ‘little people', we encounter an entirely new species of Tarsier - a tiny primate related to us but, proportionate to body weight, with a far larger brain. On Flores Island, Lawrence explores the cave where anthropologists recently discovered the bones of the ‘hobbit’, or Homo floresiensis, a 'cousin' species of man, who flourished as recently as 10,000 years ago, and was barely 3 feet tall.

Film #2 – Seas / 47 mins
Lawrence takes us on a Sailing adventure east of Bali, via underwater encounters with sperm whales, enormous eels, and mysterious life forms in search of the most vividly bioluminescent creature in nature – the Loweri Fish, thought to be the origin of the mythical glowing gems of Ratu Kidul, the Goddess of the South Seas.

Sumatra Orang Utan Society Event

In support of the internationally recognised ‘Orangutan Caring Week’.

Through the eyes of an orangutan, this inspiring film shows the extraordinary diversity of the plant and animal species that make up their unique habitat.

Patrick Rouxel's “Losing Tomorrow” is a poetic film on the Indonesian Rainforest. This film reminds us that the international consumption of exotic hardwood actively contributes to the massive destruction of the Indonesian Rainforest and its biodiversity. Along side the beautiful imagery, it talks of the Indonesians who are paying the toll for short-term economic gain in a country that has the highest number of plant and animal species threatened by extinction.

Patrick Rouxel is an independent filmmaker dedicated to the protection of the environment.

Easy Rider (1969) see poster

The Future of Food (2004) see poster

It examines the complex web of market and political forces that are changing what we eat as huge multinational corporations seek to control the world's food system. The film explores alternatives to large-scale industrial agriculture, placing organic and sustainable agriculture as real solutions to the farm crisis today.

The World's Fastest Indian (2005) see poster

Part road movie, part extreme-sports biopic, and all shaggy-dog story, The World's Fastest Indian evades easy classification. Regardless, it's hard to resist the film's pleasant market-defying eccentricity. Indian tells the story of Burt Munro, a sexagenarian New Zealand loner who, in 1967, hauls his 40-plus-year-old Indian brand motorcycle to a Utah raceway to see how fast it'll go, and subsequently breaks a speed record.

The film begins in the present, as Ram Dass deals with the effects of a massive stroke he suffered in Feburary 1997 that left him physically incapacitated. Interweaving current conversations, interviews with people in his life, and archival footage, we look back at his childhood, the controversy surrounding his research with Timothy Leary in psychedelics at Harvard, his studies in India with Neem Karoli Baba, who renamed him Baba Ram Dass (Servant of God), his work with the Seva Foundation in social action projects dedicated to relieving suffering in the world, and his impact as an author and guru to millions of followers.
