Agnes and his Brothers
- 111 min
Agnes and his brothers have little in common, except an eccentric old father, relationship problems that are totally screwing up their lives, and the distinct possibility those two things are connected. Hans-Jörg conceals his sexual frustration behind his meek librarian appearance. Werner is much more successful at political combat than family diplomacy. Agnes is haunted by the mother she never knew and perhaps too nostalgic about her past as a man. Despite her efforts, transgendered Agnes just can't quite fit into the mold of the little homemaker expected by her bossy boyfriend. Once she's out on the streets alone, Agnes wipes away her tears and proudly takes on her bleak future with a smile. A profoundly human family drama, it's a story full of passion, poetry and humor about three brothers searching for love and acceptance, and at the same time, a fascinating snapshot of the current state of affairs in Germany.

Billy Wilder Speaks
- 71 min
In 1988, Oscar-winning German filmmaker Volker Schlondorff ("The Tin Drum") sat down with legendary director Billy Wilder at his office in Beverly Hills, California and turned on his camera for a series of filmed interviews. The conversation went on for two weeks. The results were aired on German TV in 1992 and debuted on U.S. television when it was shown on Turner Classic Movies in 2006. We are presented with a generous smattering of film clips, rare photographs and artwork, but mostly Wilder just sits in his office and talks with the off screen Schlondorff, moving easily between English and German. Clips shown include: "Double Indemnity," "The Lost Weekend," "A Foreign Affair," "Sunset Blvd.," "Ace in the Hole." "Stalag 17," "Sabrina," "Witness for the Prosecution," "Some Like It Hot," and "The Apartment." Wilder discusses all these films, and the actors in them as well. Mostly, Wilder offers his philosophy of movie making from one of its undisputed masters. As one might expect from Wilder, he peppers his conversations with hilarious anecdotes, keen insights into the craft of movie making and frank advice about the art of survival in Hollywood.
