  • Copyright Criminals

    Various Artists

    Year: 2009

    Runtime: 53 min

    Copyright Criminals examines the creative and commercial value of musical sampling, including the related debates over artistic expression, copyright law, and (of course) money. This documentary traces the rise of hip-hop from the urban streets of New York to its current status as a multibillion-dollar industry. For more than thirty years, innovative hip-hop performers and producers have been re-using portions of previously recorded music in new, otherwise original compositions. When lawyers and record companies got involved, what was once referred to as a “borrowed melody” became a “copyright infringement.” The film showcases many of hip-hop music’s founding figures like Public Enemy, De La Soul, and Digital Underground—while also featuring emerging hip-hop artists from record labels Definitive Jux, Rhymesayers, Ninja Tune, and more. It also provides an in-depth look at artists who have been sampled, such as Clyde Stubblefield (James Brown’s drummer and the world’s most sampled musician), as well as commentary by another highly sampled musician, funk legend George Clinton. As artists find ever more inventive ways to insert old influences into new material, this documentary asks a critical question, on behalf of an entire creative community: Can you own a sound? USA Today calls Copyright Criminals "...a compelling and insightful documentary illuminating both sides of a hotly debated issue: Should the original artists get paid when someone samples their work? Are current copyright laws out of step with our mashed-up, high-tech culture?" "...an amazing documentary on the history of sampling" -Rob Sheffield, Contributing Editor, Rolling Stone. "...so vibrant in presentation and in its use of audio/visual mash-ups proving their points that it's not only one of the most enjoyable documentaries you've seen in a while, it's one of the only ones you can dance to." - Hartford Courant. "Benjamin Franzen and Kembrew McLeod's exceptionally smart and energetic documentary lays out the complexities of sampling--artistic and political, legal and philosophical."

  • Wonderful Crazy Night

    Elton John

    Year: 2016

    Runtime: 1 hr 7 min

    Thirty-three studio albums and Elton John and his trusted copilot, Bernie Taupin, are still making the soundtrack of our lives. Rock ’n’ roll is the key motivator here. “Blue Wonderful” is wrapped in guitars and features a solo from album producer T Bone Burnett. “Guilty Pleasure” is raucous fun. Taupin’s deft lyrical touch shines on “I’ve Got 2 Wings” and “The Open Chord”, both flush with clever turns of phrase. “A Good Heart” is pure Elton balladry—heartfelt feelings framed by his timeless voice. “Looking Up” expresses gratitude with characteristic flair, like a 2016 version of “I’m Still Standing”. Wonderful Crazy Night shows that rock ‘n’ roll remains Elton John’s North Star.

  • Mystery Girl: Unraveled

    Roy Orbison

    Year: 2014

    Runtime: 1 hr 36 min

    In the words of Ben Fong-Torres:
    What was not to love about Roy Orbison? He was humble, he was friendly, and he had one of the greatest voices in popular music. With songs like “In Dreams” and “Running Scared,” he turned pop tunes into opera, and was called “the Pavarotti of rock and roll.”

    The discography of Roy Orbison (1936-1988) - which yielded some of the most heartfelt, passionate classics of the rock ‘n’ roll era - shined even brighter with the release of Mystery Girl, the last album Orbison recorded, in 1989. The commercial success of Mystery Girl was nothing short of impressive: the album was a Top 5 hit, eventually earning Orbison his first platinum award for over 1 million sales, and featured the worldwide Top 10 smash “You Got It.” Mystery Girl: Unraveled features a new hour-long documentary on the making of the album, executive produced by Roy’s sons. The documentary includes new interviews with those behind the album including Steve Cropper, Tom Petty, Mick Campbell and Jeff Lynne. In addition there are eight wonderful music videos, including an unreleased alternate video for “She’s a Mystery to Me” and three new videos for “The Way Is Love,” “You Got It” and “California Blue.

  • Episode 1: Fuck Art Let's Dance

    London Calling The Untold Story Of British Pop Music 

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 53 min

    "Fuck art let's dance!" proclaimed the famous slogan on a post-punk T-shirt, expressing the rebellious musical spirit that thrived in art colleges at the time. Ironically it was precisely this spirit that had led to British art colleges contributing to pop music culture on a scale unmatched elsewhere. The new role of art schools as a social melting pot in the 1960s, and their policy that everyone had to study a broad-based arts curriculum before being allowed to specialise, resulted in a new cultural playground where musical passions and fresh ideas flourished. Every British pop band contained at least one art school graduate and many, from Roxy Music and Wire to Franz Ferdinand, formed entirely at art school. Pete Townshend's legendary Union Jack jacket - often misinterpreted as patriotism - was a pure pop art statement, deconstructing the national flag as fashion, and the band's clever conceptual collection The Who Sell Out was the result of manager Kit Lambert "encouraging my art school ambitions". Even scruffy rebels like The Sex Pistols owed their aesthetic to art college graduates Malcolm McLaren and Jamie Reid's love of the Situationist and Dadaist movements, and every band that hadn't met at art college boasted an art college graduate, or found itself steered, styled, sloganised, photographed and reported on by their like. This opening episode examines the reasons behind this phenomenon, and asks if this uniquely British impulse has run its course.

    Posse

    Year: 2016

    Runtime: 23 min

    Posse is so unbelievably cool. With dreamy soundscapes and stark, deadpan vocals, Posse makes perfect rainy day music. They write the kind of songs that would honestly fit well over some self-effacing John Cusack monologue. Their sound is signature Seattle, but not pretentious in the slightest. With lyrics so layered and melodies so subtle, Posse’s songs take up a lot of real estate in your brain and refuse to leave.

The American Dance Guild created a one-time concert, which is a unique historic retrospective of the Modern Dance choreographers of THE NEW DANCE GROUP from the 1930's to the 1970's. This concert of 18 recreated dances and excerpts celebrates and honors the achievements of the New Dance Group in its heyday. At the time, the choreographers of the dances featured in this video were a dramatic voice for social change. These choreographers came from the 1930's tradition of idealistic artistic innovators who aimed to make dance a viable statement about the injustices of the world. The GALA Concert presents the original choreographers, or their artistic heirs, together with excellent professional dancers in a program of influential and compelling works. The GALA Concert was produced by the American Dance Guild in June 1993, and includes mini-interviews with the choreographers. The video includes such legendary dances as: "the solo Masterpiece of the decade", THE DESPERATE HEART (1943) by Valerie Bettis, and the darkly dramatic LYNCHTOWN (1936) by Charles Weidman. There are important dances that highlight the American black experience, such as Pearl Primus's THE NEGRO SPEAKS OF RIVERS (1944), and Donald McKayle's portrayal of the experience of chain gangs in RAINBOW ROUND MY SHOULDER (1959). Also featured are Modern Dances true mavericks, including Anna Sokolow's LYRIC SUITE (1954), Daniel Nagrin's STRANGE HERO (1948) and Sophie Maslow's FOLKSAY (1942).
