  • Come Together: A Beatles Tribute

    Various Artists

    Year: 2014

    Runtime: 52 min

    If music is the universal language, then the songs of the Beatles are its Rosetta Stone. Their compositions are an international language that crosses all borders and overrides cultural differences. Though they no longer exist as the Fab Four, their musical legacy lives on through generations of fans, and the thousands of tribute bands who "come together" worldwide, to interpret and perform their music. There are an estimated 8,000 Beatles tribute bands globally who perform at multiple Beatles festivals and conventions throughout the world. Shot almost entirely in Liverpool, the birthplace of The Beatles, and captured in HD during International Beatles Week, Come Together is a tribute to that legacy - a phenomena that shows no signs of stopping. Paul once said, "A hundred years from now, people will listen to the music of the Beatles the same way we listen to Mozart." Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. The lengths some tribute groups go to ranges from simple vocal harmonies, to what are affectionately called "Boots and Suits" bands. Regardless of nationality, they attempt to look and sound as close to the originals as possible. The result is a creative composite of musical expression. The documentary illustrates their diversification in sound and illusion. Come Together, moderated on-camera by John Lennon's sister, Julia Baird, captures that spirit, motivation, energy and interpretation through in-depth interviews, rare footage, stunning concert performances, and personal stories by bands and fans alike. People have come together from Tokyo to Stockholm to Las Vegas to share their love of the music of The Beatles and the positive and uplifting message it brings. This is their tribute to them as well.

    Runtime: 56 min

    The date is May 2nd, 1957. Stalin died only four years before and perestroika is still a long way off. However, the Canadian pianist Glenn Gould, who is just 24, arrives in Moscow for an exceptional tour: he is the first North American musician to play behind the iron curtain. This is the story that Glenn Gould in Russia tells by revealing documents from the Canadian Ministry of Foreign Affairs that had remained classified for years. Witness accounts from musicians such as Ashkenazy and Rostropovitch, parts of the original recordings of Gould’s concerts in Moscow and Leningrad, as well as a recording that had never been released before of his lecture-recital in Leningrad make this an invaluable documentary revealing an aspect of Glenn Gould’s artistry that few people are aware of.

  • Homeland

    Laurie Anderson

    Year: 2008

    Runtime: 41 min

    Homeland,' long awaited in recorded form, has evolved over more than two years of touring as Anderson developed the songs in front of concertgoers around the world, from downtown clubs in Manhattan to an amphitheatre in Athens, Greece. In Artforum, Anderson summarized the songs as 'one-third politics, one-third pure music, and one-third strange dreams.' The work was shaped more by humanity than by technology; Anderson built an intimate rapport with her audience during a show that featured a shifting set-list of new material and relied on words and music far more than visual and theatrical effects. That intimacy is just as palpable in the songs that evolved to make up her new album.. The Guardian said ''Homeland' represents some of the most purely beautiful music she has ever made.' In the States, Daily Variety declared, 'The music that accompanies the vignettes and songs is some of the loveliest that Anderson has ever written ...Like the narratives it accompanies, the sound's grave but not without wit; measured and dispassionate, but not without heart.'

    On the road, 'Homeland' drew acclaim and attracted controversy for its political content. But Anderson is not merely criticizing or complaining; on tracks like the stunning 11-minute album centerpiece, 'Another Day In America,' Anderson is really singing for our survival, retelling the stories of our present state in the most forthright material of her career. It can be harrowing but it can be hopeful, and it is as riveting as anything Anderson has produced since the groundbreaking 'Big Science' in 1982. As Variety concluded, ''Homeland' reinforces Anderson's place as the best interpreter of our troubled times.'

  • Episode 4: Master of Puppets

    London Calling The Untold Story Of British Pop Music 

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 52 min

    Britain's rock managers, with their largely theatrical background, were flamboyant in a way that baffled their secretive American counterparts. But, as they blundered and bludgeoned their way across the world's stages, these flashy impresarios ended up defining many of the rules of the modern music business. A rich post-war palette of gangsters, impresarios and Jewish homosexuals, these people were pioneers, they learning by their mistakes - like the disastrous Beatles merchandising deal that Brian Epstein struck - but without the belief, stubbornness and casual violence of Peter Grant, who upgraded the artist/promoter profit split on Led Zeppelin's 1972 tour from 50/50 to 90/10, every act touring America (including the homegrown ones) would be making a fraction of the money they now do from ticket sales. The amazing tales of ingenuity, visionary marketing and pure gangsterism are legion, and the influence these people have had on the culture remains, to the average music fan, an untold story. In this episode we reveal the truth about the real star makers of the music industry, with expert witnesses including notorious rock managers Andrew Loog Oldham, Simon Napier-Bell and Miles Copeland, as well as legendary rock critic Jon Savage.

  • Stories From Jamaica's Music Underground

    Rise Up

    Year: 2010

    Runtime: 1 hr 27 min

    On an island where reggae is considered the voice of the people and an outlet for survival, RiseUp follows three aspiring artists who seek to “rise up” from obscurity for their chance at success. This documentary is unlike any documentary about Jamaica as it takes the viewer off the beaten path far from any tourist attractions and sandy beaches yet still able to capture the beauty and magic that the Irie has to offer. From the deep countryside to the whirlwind ghettos of Kingston, no matter where you are, the film makes it evident that reggae music is the heartbeat of the culture. In a society where talent abounds and opportunity is scarce, RiseUp follows the very different lives of three artists struggling in their own unique way for their big break at stardom. Turbulence, the conscious ghetto youth with enough determination to move mountains; Ice, the young faux-gangster dancehall artist from the upper class; and Kemoy, the beautifully innocent country girl who barely realizes her amazing vocal gifts… all come together as the film seamlessly interweaves their lives behind the backdrop of the bustling underground reggae scene of Jamaica.

    In the early 1980’s, growing in a similar yet geographically separate way to the “grunge” movement in Seattle, was a new and lesser known genre of music known as “desert rock.” It was a catch-all style that ultimately evolved from jam-band generator parties that took place in remote desert locations outside of Palm Springs, CA. "Desert Age" traces the complete historical lineage of the people, places and bands that shaped that scene and genre to this day. The film is comprised of exclusive interviews, private photos and home videos that offer in-depth access to a scene that has remained insulated and undocumented until now.
