Ron Mann – Go Further (2003)

GO FURTHER is a documentary that charts the progress of an environmental activism bus tour from Seattle to Santa Barbara, led by actor Woody Harrelson. In a biofuel bus burning hempseed oil as gas, painted with scenic and symbolic murals depicting the tour’s goals, Harrelson and his crew of eclectic environmentalists–a yoga instructor, a raw foods chef, an organic living neophyte–set out to educate people about Simple Organic Living (SOL), calling their trek the SOL Tour. While some of the SOL Tour’s participants ride in the bus, others bike alongside it. Read More »

Werner Herzog – On Death Row (2012)

In this gripping series of films, Academy-Award nominated filmmaker Werner Herzog (Into
the Abyss, Grizzly Man) delves deeper into the abyss of the human soul. Through
interviews with five inmates awaiting their appointment with a lethal injection in the Texas
and Florida prison systems, Herzog conducts a uniquely thought-provoking analysis of why
people, and the state, kill. Each of the four episodes features an intense interview with a
death row inmate in which we hear their own account of life in captivity and the crime that
condemned them. Herzog explores the emotions that these men and women go through as
they possess the haunting knowledge of exactly when – and how – they are going to die.
Utterly gripping, Death Row packs a strong emotional punch and is a truly unmissable
experience. Read More »
