    Year: 2018

    Runtime: 1 hr 2 min

    After two concept albums and a string of roles in Hollywood blockbusters, one of music’s fiercest visionaries sheds her alter egos and steps out as herself. Buckle up: Human Monáe wields twice the power of any sci-fi character. In this confessional, far-reaching triumph, she dreams of a world in which love wins (“Pynk") and women of color have agency (“Django Jane”). Featuring guest appearances from Brian Wilson, Grimes, and Pharrell—and bearing the clear influence of Prince, Monae’s late mentor—Dirty Computer is as uncompromising and mighty as it is graceful and fun. “I’m the venom and the antidote,” she wails in “I Like That,” a song about embracing these very contradictions. “Take a different type of girl to keep the whole world afloat.”

  • Stole the Show: Director's Cut

    Kygo

    Year: 2018

    Runtime: 51 min

    "Stole The Show drops us into the heart of the music streaming revolution.
    Our story follows the rise of Kygo, the first star born in this new streaming age. His success across streaming platforms, driven by his invention of the “tropical house” genre, changed the fundamental rules of how an artist succeeds.
    Stole The Show centers around Kygo's first arena show at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, using it as a lens to examine not only Kygo's journey from his bedroom studio in Bergen, Norway, but also the revolutionary rise of streaming.
    Before Barclays, Kygo was in an oddly indefinable position. His success felt major, becoming the fastest artist in history to reach one billion streams. However, no one had been in this position before, so there were no common benchmarks to go by. He needed a test to gauge his standing outside of the digital world. Barclays Center was that test, and the sold-out results reflected a resounding success. Stole The Show, featuring Bono, Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix, and Shaggy, examines Kygo's ascent within this brave new world of streaming, following his career from before it could be called a career through the moment he officially broke through the ceiling in Brooklyn, and beyond."

  • Pretend We're Dead

    L7

    Year: 2017

    Runtime: 1 hr 27 min

    L7: Pretend We're Dead takes us on an all-access journey into the 1990's grunge movement that took the world by storm, and the band that helped define it as the genre of a generation. Culled from over 100 hours of vintage home movies taken by the band, never-before-seen performance footage, and candid interviews, L7: Pretend We're Dead is an engrossing time capsule told from the perspective of L7, these true insiders who brought their signature blend of grunge punk to the masses! Chronicling the early days of the band's formation in 1985 to their height as the 'queens of grunge,' the film takes a roller coaster ride through L7's triumphs and failures, providing never-before-discussed insight into the band's eventual dissolution in 2001. Formed by Donita Sparks and Suzi Gardner-guitars/vocals, the band completed their lineup with the addition of Jennifer Finch on bass/vocals and Dee Plakas on drums. To highlight the fact that L7 was an all-female group, however, was to miss the point. "Our fans couldn't give a shit if we're women," Sparks says. "We did not set out to be an all-girl band. It just happened that way." Yet the "gender issue" would return time and again for the band; from shock jocks refusing to play "chick rock" to academics accusing the band of "incorrectly" embracing their feminism to hard rock press implying the band was merely riding a wave of "girl power" trendiness. Despite these obstacles, L7: Pretend We're Dead shows the thread of influence the band had not only on rock and roll but on future generations of women everywhere and is, at the end, a testament to the pioneering spirit of a band that refuses to take anything lying down. "They can't hear a word we said, when we pretend that we're dead" Also includes the infamous 1997 documentary "L7 The Beauty Process" that was directed by Krist Novoselic.
