Banksy Does New York - Chris Moukarbel

Chris Moukarbel
Genre: Documentary
Price: $4.99
Release Date: May 19, 2015

Acclaimed director, Chris Moukarbel (HBO’s Me at the Zoo, SEX//NOW), latest film is a feature documentary about the renowned street artist Banksy’s self-proclaimed and citywide celebrated month long October 2013 residency in New York City.Banksy is revered and reviled, considered both a vandal and a genius. Completely anonymous, he is nevertheless without question one of the world’s best known living artists; having left his unmistakable mark and social messages everywhere from Los Angeles street corners to the walls of the Tate. Over the course of a month-long residency in New York, Banksy and his team took to the streets – secretly creating a variety of public work ranging from elaborate conceptual stunts to traditional graffiti art. Constructed under the dark of night, each new piece was then announced daily on his #BANKSYNY Instagram account and chronicled on his pop-up website. Constantly evading a citywide search by the NYPD, Banksy’s work created a public response that was an equal mix of reverence and derision, with some of the more controversial statements sending waves of reaction throughout the city.” From a Central Park stand where priceless original works were anonymously sold for $60 to a mural on the entrance to the Hustler strip club, to a junkyard in Willets Point, Queens; New York City served as the canvas for this street art vigilante.BANKSY DOES NEW YORK is an exhilarating survey and detailed documentation of Banksy’s city-wide exhibit and at the same time a vibrant portrait of the city itself. As in his other film projects, Moukarbel has employed his distinctive method of weaving his own footage together with crowd-sourced footage shot by those countless individuals that experienced Banksy’s work on the front line. In this way, the film will both document Banksy’s elaborate stunt and also take an unprecedented look at what it means to make public art in the information age. In the end, this residency garnered international attention and raised Banksy’s profile to an iconic stature. From ABC to Al Jazeera, no other public art project ever has received the same level of mainstream attention from the press. The most striking feature of Banksy’s time in NYC was the amount of social media coverage. Each day the public would rush to the newest location - armed with camera phones. These video recordings blasted the Internet in a grass-roots media blitz like no other cultural project in New York City. The film was produced by Jack Turner (HBO’s Emmy winning Which Way Home, Me @ the Zoo and Cold in July).

A son's riveting look at a father whose life seemed straight out of a spy thriller, THE MAN NOBODY KNEW - IN SEARCH OF MY FATHER, CIA SPYMASTER WILLIAM COLBY, uncovers the secret world of a legendary CIA spymaster. Told by William Colby's son Carl, the story is at once a probing history of the CIA, a personal memoir of a family living in clandestine shadows, and an inquiry into the hard costs of a nation's most cloaked actions. From the beginning of his career as an OSS officer parachuting into Nazi-occupied Europe, William Colby rose through the ranks of "The Company," and soon was involved in covert operations in hot spots around the globe. He swayed elections against the Communists in Italy, oversaw the coup against President Diem in Saigon, and ran the controversial Phoenix Program in Vietnam, which sparked today's legacy of counter-insurgency. But after decades of obediently taking on the White House's toughest and dirtiest assignments, and rising to become Director of CIA, Colby defied the President. Braving intense controversy, he opened up to Congress some of the agency's darkest, most tightly held secrets and extra-legal operations. Now, his son asks a series of powerful and relevant questions about the father who was a ghost-like presence in the family home - and the intelligence officer who became a major force in American history, paving the way for today's provocative questions about security and secrecy vs. liberty and morality. The film forges a fascinating mix of rare archival footage, never-before-seen photos, and interviews with the "who's who" of American intelligence, including former National Security Advisers Brent Scowcroft and Zbigniew Brzezinski, former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, former Secretary of Defense and Director of CIA James Schlesinger, as well Pulitzer Prize journalist Bob Woodward. Through it all, Carl Colby searches for an authentic portrait of the man who remained masked even to those who loved him most.

Meet Scientology's highest-level defector, Marty Rathbun. As the former Inspector General of Ethics in the organisation, Rathbun worked closely with its leader, David Miscavige, and celebrity follower Tom Cruise. Now he lives in small town America, a man under siege. "The squirrel himself, how you doing Mr Squirrel?" A woman in a blue poncho cackles at the top of her voice, her wild eyed-face jammed into the camera lens. She's one of the Squirrel Busters who have for months besieged Marty Rathbun's house. They're sent to harass and torment members who leave and then make public their Scientology experiences. It's an incredible turnaround for Marty who had been David Miscavige's number two in the Church and was a master of these 'dirty tricks': "I didn't think twice about silencing critics or punishing someone". The Church may contest Marty's status now, but in 1993 Miscavige describes taking on the head of the IRS, side by side with Marty, as they prevailed in Scientology's greatest victory to date, becoming tax exempt in the US and dodging a billion dollar tax bill. Not only that - but Marty was the man charged with finding a poster boy for Scientology and attracting none other than Tom Cruise. "I helped them on his divorce with Nicole and then I was auditing him and helping him get Penelope audited". But his close relationship with Cruise was also his downfall, "Miscavige had to start undermining me in front of Cruise". Out of favour, Marty eventually escaped, going on the run to start up his own independent Scientology movement. Now his blog presents the greatest direct threat to Scientology. In return, they've turned Marty's daily life into a bitter battle. Marty's story offers an unparalleled insight into the inner workings of Scientology's upper echelons and the full array of the weapons it resorts to when it feels a need to protect its own interests. Truly fascinating - and more than a little frightening. Orwell would have loved it!

Korengal picks up where Restrepo left off; the same men, the same valley, the same commanders, but a very different look at the experience of war. Korengal explains how war works, what it feels like and what it does to the young men who fight it. As one soldier cheers when he kills an enemy fighter, another looks into the camera and asks if God will ever forgive him for all of the killing he has done. As one soldier grieves the loss of his friend in combat, another explains why he misses the war now that his deployment has ended, and admits he would go back to the front line in a heartbeat. Every bit as intense and affecting as Restrepo, Korengal goes a step further in bringing the war into people's living rooms back home.

The film follows the Whites over the course of one tumultuous year, as they deal with a stabbing, criminal sentencing, attempted murder, death and birth.

"MIRAGE MEN takes a fascinating excursion into a twilight zone of wild conspiracies, obsessive believers and psychological double agents..." "...engaging...good fun." - The Hollywood Reporter

How the US government created a myth that took over the world. ET visitors. . . crashed UFOs. . . back-engineered alien technology. . . the government cover-up of a secret that would change the world as we know it. . . These are the core elements of the modern UFO mythology, a story that has captivated farmers, princes and generals for generations, and shows no sign of loosening its grip on the popular imagination. But what if, instead of covering up the UFO story, elements in the US military had actively encouraged it as part of their Cold War counterintelligence arsenal - manufacturing the myth of the UFO as a powerful weapon of mass deception and the perfect cover for all manner of clandestine technologies and operations. Now, for the first time, some of those whose actions have directly shaped the UFO mythology, and some of their victims, tell their stories, revealing a surreal disturbing and sometimes tragic sequence of events that is part Manchurian Candidate and part Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Mirage Men draws viewers into a saucer-shaped hall of mirrors, a shadow-world where every lie contains elements of the truth, and the truth is far stranger than the UFO believers, or their detractors, would have you believe.

But our heroes confront an even bigger challenge: have we reached our limit in understanding why we exist?

Directed by Mark Levinson, a physicist turned filmmaker, from the inspiration and initiative of producer David Kaplan and masterfully edited by Walter Murch (Apocalypse Now, The English Patient, The Godfather trilogy), Particle Fever is a celebration of discovery, revealing the very human stories behind this epic machine.

OPEN SECRET is a documentary that chronicles Steve Lickteig’s 20-year search for who his real birth parents were; why a whole town kept the truth from him; and how his family’s tumultuous history revolves around the hidden lives of two unconventional women. Steve grew up as the adoptee of Don and Mary Jane Lickteig, who ran a farm in Kansas and had eight other (natural) children. Lickteig always wondered who his real parents were and planned to search for them as an adult. When he was 18 years old, Steve received shocking news from his two best friends: he was not adopted from unknown parents but was actually the illegitimate son of his oldest sister, Joanie. Not only that, everyone in his life had always known the secret: his siblings, his schoolmates, townsfolk, even his girlfriends. Steve’s anger and confusion led to a long period of estrangement from his family. But his marriage led to a desire for reconciliation. He discovered that the secret to his story lay in the hidden lives of his adopted mother, Mary Jane; his biological mother, Joanie; and his long-lost father, a Polish Jew and Holocaust survivor. OPEN SECRET explores the cost of suppressing history across multiple generations. It follows the wrenching, funny, and liberating process of piecing together an authentic (and inevitably contradictory) family history.

In 137 years of organized professional baseball, it’s the only no-hitter tossed while the pitcher was on LSD. Dock was often embroiled in controversy on and off the field. While professional baseball hadn’t fully embraced racial equality, he was an outspoken leader who lived the expression ‘Black is Beautiful!’ His fearlessness enabled him to become one of the most intimidating pitchers of the 70’s and a trailblazer for a new wave of civil rights. After retiring, Dock became as outspoken about his career-spanning substance abuse issues as he had been about intolerance. He spent decades utilizing his brash approach as a counselor, helping other addicts in their recoveries. Through intimate stories and a trove of archival footage, No No: A Dockumentary brings Dock’s vibrant life to light, burnishing the legend and revealing the man behind it.
