Amazon Says: Product DescriptionFilmed over twenty years by acclaimed documentarian Jennifer Fox (Flying: Confessions of a Free Woman), MY REINCARNATION chronicles the epic story of the high Tibetan Buddhist Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and his western-born son Yeshi. The film follows Namkhai Norbu s rise to greatness as a Buddhist teacher in the West, while Yeshi, recognized at birth as the reincarnation of a famous spiritual master, breaks away from his father s tradition to embrace the modern world. Can the father convince his son to keep the family s threatened spiritual legacy alive? Never before has a high Tibetan Master allowed such complete access to his private life and it is doubtful that another ever will. With her signature intimate entry to both family and icons including the Dalai Lama, Fox expertly distills a decades-long drama into a universal story about love, transformation and destiny.Special FeaturesDeleted ScenesSneak Preview Screening footage, Melbourne, AustraliaHighlights from NYC PremiereExtended InterviewEnglish, Italian, Tibetan with English Subtitles less...

Amazon Says: Workingman's Death is an unflinching portrait of the state of manual labor in the 21st century. In the Ukraine, a group of men spend long days crawling through cramped shafts of illegal coal mines. Sulfur gatherers in Indonesia brave smoky heat of an active volcano and the treacherous trip back down. Blood, fire and stench are routines for workers at a crowded open-air Slaughterhouse in Nigeria. Pakistani men use little more than their bare hands to dismantle an abandoned oil tanker for scrap metal. Steelworkers in China fear they could be a dying breed. less...
