A feature-length documentary film about hip-hop DJing, otherwise known as turntablism. From the South Bronx in the 1970s to San Francisco now, the world's best scratchers, beat-diggers, party-rockers, and producers wax poetic on beats, breaks, battles, and the infinite possibilities of vinyl.
Pearl Jam: Touring Band 2000
28 songs filmed entirely with handheld cameras by Pearl Jam crew members across 19 different cities from the bands' 2000 North American tour. Reflecting the time and composition of an actual concert set list, this video is, in the words of Eddie Vedder, "in some ways the visual equivalent of the bootlegs that have been released in the past year... a basic document of what may occur at any given Pearl Jam concert."

Josie and the Pussycats
Josie, Melody and Val are three small-town girl musicians determined to take their rock band out of their garage and straight to the top, while remaining true to their look, style and sound.

They must clear their names, even if it means losing fame and fortune.
The film is a day in the life of a young artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat, who needs to raise money to reclaim the apartment from which he has been evicted. He wanders the downtown streets carrying a painting he hopes to sell, encountering friends, whose lives (and performances) we peek into.
