Requiem For The American Dream
– directed by Kelly Nyks, Jared P. Scott, Peter D. Hutchison
Through interviews with Noam Chomsky filmed over four years, this definitive documentary of the “Two Americas” is an unvarnished account of how policies have helped concentrate wealth in the hands of a few at the expense of everyone else. Profoundly personal and thought provoking, this is an eye opening revised vision of the American Dream, in the wake of a dying middle class.
– directed by Amber Fares
The first all-woman racecar driving team from the Middle East have been grabbing headlines and turning heads at race tracks across the West Bank. These five women have sped their way into the heart of the gritty, male-dominated Palestinian street car-racing scene. Weaving together their lives on and off the track, Speed Sisters takes you on a surprising journey that drives you fast and far.
The Missing Ingredient
– directed by Toronto-native Michael Sparaga
What makes a restaurant an “institution”? Is it something you can manufacture, or even copy? The Missing Ingredient
follows Manhattan restaurateur Charles Devigne as he makes the bold decision to boost his struggling restaurant’s business by putting up the iconic zebra wallpaper made world-famous by the recently closed New York dining institution Gino’s. His choice sparks controversy when Gino’s previous owners, staff and loyal regulars, still hurting over Gino’s closing, catch wind of his intentions.
