Getting Naked: A Burlesque Story
"Getting Naked: A Burlesque Story" peels back the curtain to reveal the sexy sub-culture of the neo-burlesque scene in New York City. This verité documentary intimately follows four performers, each of whom has discovered a newfound identity and belonging in a world of bawdy comedy and striptease. However, they find all that glitters is not necessarily gold, as this liberating community does not insulate from the harsh realities of sexism, illness and existential crisis. "Getting Naked" explores what it means to be an artist, an entertainer, and a woman in the toughest city on Earth.
Pornocracy: The New Sex Multinationals
With her background and experience in the field, the former French adult film star, director, documentarist, and feminist, Ovidie, investigates the current state of production and distribution of pornography, as the once lucrative adult film industry is in rapid decline more than ever before. Without a doubt, a lot has changed since the advent of the multitude of free online sites, or "tubes", and the crash of the omnipotent DVD market in the mid-2000s, and nowadays, performers earn less while being forced to shoot more and more challenging scenes. But, with a rampant piracy and nearly no profit at all, who is the one who benefits?
Scream for Me Sarajevo
In 1994 Sarajevo was a city under siege. Mortars and rocket propelled grenades rained onto the city, killing indiscriminately, ever day. Amongst the madness, two United Nations personnel: a British military officer and another Brit working for the UN Fire Department, decided it would be fun to persuade a global rock star, Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden, to come and play a gig to the population. Scream for Me Sarajevo brings that story, in all its madness, to the big screen. A story of musicians who risked their lives to play a gig to people who risked their lives to live them.

The Rachel Divide
Rachel Dolezal became infamous when she was unmasked as a white woman living as the black head of her local N.A.A.C.P. chapter. Her unbelievable story issued a direct challenge to the sensitive topics of race and identity, while playing into the age of viral media. Whether she was hated or simply misunderstood, Dolezal touched a collective nerve in the racially charged contemporary, causing her to burst into the public consciousness. Filming exclusively with Dolezal, her sons, and her adoptive sister Esther, documentarian Laura Brownson delves into the motivations and personal life of this divisive and controversial figure; in doing so, she explores the troubled past that has informed Dolezal's confusing present and uncertain future. Executive produced by Academy Award®-winner Roger Ross Williams, The Rachel Divide is a fully realized portrait of a life more complex than any tabloid would lead its readers to believe. The film demands the question: Is Dolezal truly "trans-black," as ...

Through interviews with people who knew them, such as music stars, critics, medical experts and unseen footage, the lives, music, and artistry of those who died at 27 are investigated with a bid to find answers.
