With a cast and crew of over 40 people and 20 plus songs from her back catalogue (The Teaches of Peaches, Fatherfucker, Impeach my Bush, I Feel Cream) Peaches wrote, directed and starred in this fantastical narrative build obscurely around her development as an artist and performer from "bedroom wannabe to fully fledged rock-stardom and beyond!". The result is a retrospective 'anti-jukebox' musical; a wild and wonderful trip through landmark moments in her career and albums, channeled through the eccentric and sexually skewed fibres of Peaches' imagination: "Peaches Does Herself tells the story of a young woman who, inspired by a 65-year-old stripper, begins to make sexually forthright music. Her popularity grows and she becomes what her fans expect her to be: transsexual. She falls in love with a beautiful she-male, but gets her heart broken and then ventures on a path of self-discovery." And just over a year later, Peaches' sensational electro-rock opera exploded onto the silver screen! After ten live performances, over 1,500 cuts, a movie was pulled together in a labour of love and polished up over the period of a year and lucky audiences in Toronto were the first to see the film when it had its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2012. Critics have described the movie as "a 'Pina' for the queer and sexually liberated crowd" and others "a great introduction to the wild, pumping, sexual world of Peaches". Peaches herself likes to describe it as "The Jukebox Musical that got a Sex Change"! (C) Official Site

Beth (Vinessa Shaw, 3:10 To Yuma) and Francis (Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Damages), a happy young couple expecting a child, have come to Mexico for a romantic getaway. As they dock on a sun-kissed beach where children are playing and giggling, everything seems perfect. But as they wander the strangely empty streets, an atmosphere of unease sets in: an abandoned hotel, a distress call that repeatedly echoes from a radio set, the sense of being watched...the sound of children's laughter drifting through the streets, but no adults in sight. What started as a day in paradise quickly turns into a struggle for survival. (c) CineDigm

October 2010. I'm stuck at a red light outside a 7-ELEVEN in Southampton, NY. An army of undocumented men stand on the corner in search of work. Across from them is a small, middle-aged man waving an American flag and a home-made sign that reads, "Deport Illegals". Tom Weddel, is an out-of-work roofer who has stood by himself in the same spot every morning for the past five-years protesting against illegal immigration. I pull over and rip out my camera. A half-hour later I'm 30-minutes into a new film called, They Come to America. The film focuses on the human and financial costs of illegal immigration. We filmed over the span of 14-months and journeyed through Arizona, California, Illinois, Florida, DC, New York and Colorado. The debates, events, people, and places we captured on film is simply amazing. When it comes to the topic of illegal immigration, this is a first-of-its-kind film. - (C) Official Site

Filmmaker Pritchett Cotton explores the controversial theory that American blacks were never truly released from the shackles of slavery, but instead offered the illusion of freedom by a government that methodically used financial and social constraints to prevent them from advancing within the context of the culture of the U.S. Host Rev. C.L. Bryant contrasts the social and political climates of early-21st century America against the mood of the country at the time of the civil rights movement of the 1950s and '60s while traveling across the country interviewing politicians and leaders, who comment about the concept of a "new underground railroad" that reveals the depths of the government's deception of the people. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

In 1999, Bill Wilson was named one of TIME Magazine's 100 Heroes and Icons of the 20th Century for his role as co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous. But 65 years earlier, in 1934, he had faced almost certain death from his uncontrollable drinking. At the time, medicine viewed alcoholism as a symptom of deeper psychiatric issues, and alcoholics were treated with lobotomies, shock therapy, or imprisonment. Despite this, Bill Wilson found a way to sobriety, and then forged a path for countless others to follow. With Bill as its driving force, A.A. grew from a handful of men to a worldwide fellowship of over 2 million men and women. Thousands of people throughout the world now credit him with saving their lives - both alcoholics and members of dozens of other 12 Step recovery groups. Bill's leadership eventually made him an icon within A.A. - and a man unable to be a member of the very society he had created. Through interviews, recreations, and rare archival material, Bill W. traces Wilson's life through his 17 years of devastating alcoholism, the crucial years of A.A.'s founding and growth, his battle with depression, his experimentation with LSD, and his struggle with celebrity status in an anonymous society. A reluctant hero, Bill Wilson lived a life of sacrifice and service, and left a legacy of recovery that continues every day, all around the world. Bill W. took eight years of full-time work to complete. The filmmakers conducted research in dozens of archives and private collections, and interviewed A.A. members and historians in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Making a film about the founder of an anonymous society, especially one who died in 1971, presented many obstacles, of course. Very few people who knew Bill W. were still alive at the time this production began. At first, it seemed as if there would be very little visual material available for use in a film. But research and a healthy dose of good fortune allowed the producers to unearth film footage and photographs - including some that had never been seen before - and some new material that had not been included in previous written biographies of Bill Wilson. As a result, Bill W. presents a new look at the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous.
