              The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 mobilizes a treasure trove of 16mm material shot by Swedish journalists who came to the US drawn by stories of urban unrest and revolution. Gaining access to many of the leaders of the Black Power Movement—Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver among them—the filmmakers captured them in intimate moments and remarkably unguarded interviews. Thirty years later, this lush collection was found languishing in the basement of Swedish...

                    The Eye of the Storm, a delicious dark dramady. Based on the book of the same name, think King Lear in Australia. Geoffrey Rush and Judy Davis play the squabbling children and Charlotte Rampling's the domineering manipulative seductive matriarch. It's wicked and melodramatic in the best way and they rival each other for scene stealing.
