Amazon Says: Since the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in 2009, there are only four American doctors left who openly provide third-trimester abortions Dr. LeRoy Carhart, Dr. Warren Hern, Dr. Susan Robinson, and Dr. Shelley Sella. AFTER TILLER paints a complex, compassionate portrait of these physicians who have become the new, number-one targets of the anti-abortion movement, yet continue to risk their lives every day to do work that they believe is profoundly important for their patients lives. The film weaves together revealing interviews with the doctors with intimate scenes from inside their clinics, where they counsel and care for patients at an important crossroads in their lives. By sharing the moving stories of several of these patients, AFTER TILLER illuminates the experiences of women who seek later abortions and their reasons why. less...

Amazon Says: Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Mark Mori s BETTIE PAGE REVEALS ALL is an intimate look at one of the world s most recognized sex symbols, told in her own words for the first time. In Mori s alluring documentary, the real Bettie Page emerges from the veil of myth and rumor via audio interviews taped a decade prior to her death in 2008. With earthy, razor sharp wit, Bettie tells her life story -- from humble beginnings as one of six children in an impoverished southern family, to high school salutatorian, to scandalous 50s pin-up model, to shocking retirement in 1957 at the peak of her modeling career. Sharing rare details about her short-lived first marriage and many torrid affairs, this keen insider s glimpse follows Bettie through decades of broken marriages, born-again Christianity, and bouts of mental illness, before her ultimate return to the public eye in the early 90 s, unaware of her cult status. Ranked by Forbes in 2012 as one of the top ten posthumous celebrity earners, Bettie and her enduring legacy continue to flourish. With a stunning array of gorgeous photographs, unusual archival material, and playful movie footage, BETTIE PAGE REVEALS ALL shows how Bettie s unabashed sexual expression and provocative poses set the stage for the sexual revolution and ushered in a modern era in fashion. For stars like Katy Perry and Beyonce, as well as new generations of adoring fans around the world, Bettie remains an irresistible style icon and an empowering role model. less...

Amazon Says: Simon Schama presents this epic series exploring the extraordinary story of the Jewish experience from ancient times to the present day. Both deeply historical and utterly contemporary, this is a compelling film about distinctiveness and difference, separation and isolation, tolerance and prejudice. It is also a celebration of the ways in which Jewish thought, imagination, and achievement have transformed the world for us all. less...

Amazon Says: In 1971, filmmaker and racing fan Roman Polanski spent a weekend with world champion driver Jackie Stewart as he attempted to win the Monaco Grand Prix. Polanski was given intimate access to Stewart s world for three days, both on the track and off. The result was WEEKEND OF A CHAMPION, an extraordinarily rare glimpse into the life of a gifted athlete at the height of his powers. Now after forty years, Polanski and Stewart revisit the film, looking back with both nostalgia and the temperance that comes with age. Featuring a newly-filmed postscript, WEEKEND OF A CHAMPION is here presented as both a timeless relic of the racing world in the early 70s and a fond tribute to the enduring power of the sport. less...

Amazon Says: Hurricanes, wildfires, droughts, windstorms, floods...Climate change is no longer a prediction for the future, but a startling reality of today. The Pentagon believes it to be a matter of national and international security. Yet, as the evidence of our changing climate mounts and the scientific consensus proves a human causation, there continues to be no political action to thwart the warming of our planet. Greedy Lying Bastards investigates the reason behind stalled efforts to tackle climate change despite consensus in the scientific community that it is not only a reality but also a growing problem that is placing us on the brink of disaster. The film details the people and organizations casting doubt on climate science and claims that greenhouse gases are not affected by human behavior. Filmmaker and political activist Craig Rosebraugh, in association with Executive Producer Daryl Hannah, documents the impact of an industry that has continually put profits before people, waged a campaign of lies designed to thwart measures to combat climate change, used its clout to minimize infringing regulations and undermined the political process in the U.S. and abroad. less...
