Sarah Polley explores her family history, and the idea of memory.

It's not about the world of design, it's about the design of the world.

Mau is the first-ever, feature-length documentary about the design visionary Bruce Mau. The film explores the untold story of his unlikely rise in the creative world, and ever-optimistic push to expand the boundaries of design. We tell the story of his incredible career - from Mecca to MOMA, from Guatemala to Coca Cola - and his most important project yet: his own life.

WPIRG & Cinema Politica Presents

This is more than a mere documentary of the history of political activism at the University of California at Berkeley; it’s an oral history of a struggle (the good and the bad and the downright foolish) that has never gone away, but has merely metamorphosed over time into different forms. It’s as relevant today as ever.

The Manor

Years later, his father has seen his weight balloon to 400 pounds, while his mother struggles to survive at 85 pounds.

Alone Up There

The stand-up comedian is a special breed, both an artist and an artisan. They work by painstakingly developing a persona, scripting and editing an act, and revising it on the spot to suit the energy of a given audience. If the audience does not grasp the countless hours crafting the routine, and the empathic micro-calculations, then the act was a success... well, as long as it was funny.
