This timely, eye-opening documentary takes the audience through the treacherous, yet victorious, 14-year journey that both Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure in order to obtain FDA-approved clinical trials of Antineoplastons - resulting in the largest and most convoluted defeat against the Food and Drug Administration in American history. Directed by Eric Merola, BURZYNSKI details the heroic plight of the doctor who faced relentless governmental harassment in order to bring his life-saving treatment to the world. Various cancer survivors are presented in the film that chose Dr. Burzynski's treatment instead of surgery, chemotherapy or radiation - with full disclosure of their original medical records to support their full recovery from prior terminal cancer diagnoses.

This strikingly shot concert documentary follows enigmatic Drag City singer-songwriter Bill Callahan on a two-week tour from California to New York. For the past 25 years, under both the Smog moniker and under his own name, Callahan has cultivated a legacy as both a pioneer in the lo-fi movement and one of the country's finest troubadours. The film is built on impressionistic scenes of Callahan's life on the road combined with his cryptic musings ("I started playing music when I was 20, and time stopped for me then in a good way"), creating a voyeuristic glimpse into his meticulously constructed universe of disaffection and disorder. It is an austere and beautiful portrait of both the musician and the multifarious American landscape. (c) Factory25

How is it that music can bypass the ravages of dementia? In this new documentary, neuropsychologist Oliver Sacks and others explore the channels that music courses in the brain and what it might mean for the future of Alzheimer's treatment. Each screening will be followed by a Q&A with specialists in the field. Alzheimer's disease is terrifying because one loses one's memory. 5.6 million people in the U.S. are struggling with dementia and memory loss and 10 million more people are connected to them. There is no known cure and the numbers of sufferers is on the rise. Alive Inside follows Dan Cohen, a social worker who decides on a whim to bring iPods to a nursing home. What Dan Cohen discovers by accident, and scientists have been studying for years, is that a person suffering from memory loss can seem to "awaken" when given music they have an emotional attachment to. As Sacks explains, 'Music imprints itself on the brain deeper than any other human experience. Music evokes emotion and emotion can bring with it memory."
