Away from Her

Sarah Polley

Beethoven’s Hair

Brand Upon the Brain!

The Journals of Knud Rasmussen

Manufacturing Dissent

Rick Caine, Debbie Melnyk

Less than flattering portrait of controversial Oscar-winning documentary maker Michael Moore (Bowling for Columbine) made by two Canadian filmmakers who started out as admiring fans.

Radiant City

Gary Burns, Jim Brown

Entertaining, humorous and original documentary by Gary Burns and Jim Brown exploring the legacy of suburbia, from the rise of the motorcar to the arrival of the "new urbanists".
