What happens when a college psych study goes shockingly wrong? In this tense, psychological thriller based on the notorious true story, Billy Crudup stars as Stanford University professor Dr. Philip Zimbardo, who, in 1971, cast 24 student volunteers as prisoners and guards in a simulated jail to examine the source of abusive behavior in the prison system. The results astonished the world, as participants went from middle-class undergrads to drunk-with-power sadists and submissive victims in just a few days. Winner of two awards at the Sundance Film Festival, including Best Screenplay, and created with the close participation of Dr. Zimbardo himself, 'The Stanford Prison Experiment' is a chilling, edge-of-your-seat thriller about the dark side of power and the effects of imprisonment.

In this remarkable documentary, filmmaker Brett Story excavates the often-unseen links and connections that prisons – and our system of mass incarceration – have on communities and industries all around us; from a blazing California mountainside where female prisoners fight raging wildfires to a Bronx warehouse that specializes in prison-approved care packages to an Appalachian coal town betting its future on the promise of new prison jobs to the street where Michael Brown was shot in Ferguson (and to the nearby St. Louis County, where African-Americans are still fending off police harassment, but of a different form). THE PRISON IN TWELVE LANDSCAPES is a film about our criminal justice system in which we never see a penitentiary.

Surrounded on three sides by the Mississippi River and spread across 18,000 acres, Angola with 5000 inmates, is one of the oldest and largest prisons in the US. Louisiana doles out sentences so extremes that 95% of those who enter its gates die here.

In the process, it captured their innate humanity, and the relationships and community that they build to sustain one another. By revealing a powerful and universal truth – that to err is human and to forgive, Divine – “The Farm” touched an enormous and receptive audience and garnered many of cinema and broadcast’s top awards, including Sundance’s Grand Jury Prize, three Emmys and an Oscar nomination. When first broadcast on A&E, “The Farm” attracted the largest audience for a documentary feature in the network’s history. “The Farm” was broadcast in 15 countries, including Japan, Australia, and throughout Europe, and has been the basis of educational programs throughout the nation since.

Johnny Cash is one of the most influential musical figures of the last 50 years. His deep, resonant voice and sparse guitar style have given him an instantly recognizable sound that manages to sit somewhere between folk, rock and country. He has been awarded ten Grammy Awards and was the youngest ever inductee into the Country Hall of Fame. His music is as relevant today as it has ever been. The concert on this album was recorded at the Tennessee State Penitentiary in Nashville in 1976. It is one of only two of his prison concerts that were filmed for broadcast. It features Cash with special guests Linda Ronstadt and Roy Clark performing a selection of their biggest hits such as Folsom Prison Blues, Orange Blossom Special, A Boy Named Sue and Ronstadt’s version of the Eagles Desperado. This concert has legendary status in the USA but has never had an official release in the UK.

From the Oscar-nominated director of“Far from Heaven,” “I’m Not There” and the new HBO mini-series “Mildred Pierce,” this controversial masterpiece is the most fervently debated film of the 1990’s and a trailblazing landmark of Queer Cinema. Todd Haynes’ second feature—after the underground sensation “Superstar:The Karen Carpenter Story”—this groundbreaking American indie is thrilling work of immense visual invention. Inspired by the writings of Jean Genet, Poison deftly interweaves a trio of transgressive tales—“Hero,” “Horror” and “Homo”—that build toward a devastating climax. “Hero,” shot in mock TV-documentary style, tells a bizarre story of suburban patricide and a miraculous flight from justice; “Horror,” filmed like a delirious ’50s B-movie melodrama, is a gothic tale of a mad sex experiment which unleashes a disfiguring plague; while “Homo” explores the obsessive sexual relationship between two prison inmates. A runaway hit which made national headlines when it was attacked by conservative figures including Dick Armey, Ralph Reed and Minister Donald Wildmon, Poison is audacious, unforgettable and thoroughly entertaining.

In the shadows of other dimensions, there lies a nefarious force waging war upon humans for millennia from the space between spaces - a dark force that governs not just our thoughts and actions but our very souls. The very advent of time began the slave master hierarchy between us and those unseen forces behind our every action and thought. They built and created "rules" and systems of thought, created kingdoms and spawned religions used to rule the masses from afar by controlling the ebb and flow of space and time on an epic level. We think we have the right to choose, but we do not.

On the night of February 15, 2001, Sonia Reich fled her home in Skokie, Illinois, insisting that someone was trying to kill her — to “put a bullet in [her] head." It would take a year for her son, Chicago Tribune journalist Howard Reich, to understand why she was running the streets, fearing for her life. Prisoner of Her Past tracks Howard’s journey across the United States and Eastern Europe to discover why his mother believes that the world has conspired to try to execute her. As Howard learns, Sonia has late-onset Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, a little-known but extremely debilitating illness that has pushed her into delusion. However, Sonia remains fully aware of her surroundings, totally alert to the world, thoroughly cognizant of the present. She has no hints of Alzheimer’s disease or any form of dementia. One doctor told Howard, “Dementia would be a relief for your mother, because then she wouldn’t remember.” Sonia’s horrific childhood fleeing the Nazis — about which she told Howard nothing when he was growing up — has come back to haunt her. She believes that yellow Stars of David have been sewn to her clothes, that doctors and nurses are trying to poison her, that her grandchildren have been taken away. Past and present merge in Sonia’s perceptions, and Howard sets out to discover why. He locates the few experts who can explain the obscure phenomenon of late-onset PTSD, and travels to the city of Sonia’s birth, in Ukraine, to uncover the horrors that now haunt his mother. Prisoner of Her Past ventures beyond Sonia’s story, to show what can be done to help traumatized children today. The film looks at victims of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, an area of special interest to Howard, a jazz critic. Some are benefiting from psychiatric awareness and techniques unavailable to Sonia and children of her generation. Prisoner of Her Past makes it clear that if childhood trauma victims are not helped, they will be retracing Sonia’s steps 60 years from now.

The writer, actor, and director Sacha Guitry emerged from the theater to become one of France’s best-known and most inventive filmmakers, and La poison marked his first collaboration with another titan of the screen, the incomparably expressive Michel Simon. With Guitry’s witty dialogue and fleet pacing, the black comedy is the quintessential depiction of a marriage gone sour: after thirty years together, a village gardener (Simon) and his wife (Germaine Reuver) find themselves contemplating how to do away with each other, with the former even planning how he’ll negotiate his eventual criminal trial. Inspired by Guitry’s own post–World War II tangle with the law—a wrongful charge of collaborationism—La poison is a blithely caustic broadside against the French legal system and a society all too eager to capitalize on others’ misfortunes.

Cut Poison Burn is a searing film that illuminates the grim truth about America's so-called War on Cancer. This thought-provoking documentary takes on the forces that have conspired to thwart meaningful advances in cancer research and treatment over the past century. These forces include the federal government (in its effort to label and persecute innovators as quacks), drug companies eager to suppress alternative treatments and powerful industry organizations that place profit over human lives. The story centers on the Navarros, a family struggling to keep their young son alive. The war between the Navarro Family and the FDA is perhaps this country's greatest evidence as to why there should be medical freedom. As the personal meets the political, we see how the FDA holds a vise-like grip on treatment options. Heart-wrenching and informative, the film ultimately expresses the hope that we can create a new paradigm of prevention, medical freedom and acceptance of highly-tailored therapies to usher in a more enlightened era. Over 12 years, 150 hours of footage and interviews with top oncologists, researchers, policy-makers, homeopaths and patients carry the story and reveal that we are on the brink of disaster and in desperate need of reform.

Sweethearts of the Prison Rodeo goes behind prison walls to follow convict cowgirls on their journey to the 2007 Oklahoma State Penitentiary Rodeo. In 2006, female inmates were allowed to participate for the first time. In a state with the highest female incarceration rate in the country, these women share common experiences such as broken homes, drug abuse and alienation from their children. Since 1940, the Oklahoma State Penitentiary has held an annual 'Prison Rodeo'. Part Wild West show and part coliseum-esque spectacle, it's one of the last of its kind - a relic of the American penal system. Prisoners compete on wild-broncs and bucking bulls, risking life-long injuries. For inmates like Danny Liles, a 14-year veteran of the rodeo, the chance to battle livestock offers a brief respite from prison life. Within this strange arena the prisoners become the heroes while the public and guards applaud.
