BURLESQUE: HEART OF THE GLITTER TRIBE is a documentary feature about the passion and personalities at the heart of today's new wave of burlesque. On stage and in candid conversation, twelve of today's hottest performers reveal the naked truth about an exotic world where artifice is a route to authenticity and pretending to be someone else is the ultimate journey to become yourself. These burlesquers put it all on the line in performances that are sexy, funny, elegant and outrageous - and they bare more than just their bodies as they discuss their artistic vision, their financial struggles, the misconceptions that infuriate them and the community that sustains them.

It is 2007. Banksy and his team enter Bethlehem and the occupied territories of Palestine and start to leave their signature artwork across the West Bank walls. The anonymous, pacifist street artist and the country scarred by war on a constant search for consensus and solidarity: it should have been love at first sight. But something went wrong. Among the artworks Banksy and his team left in the streets of Bethlehem, one in particular, the mural of an Israeli soldier asking a donkey for its papers incites fury: it's one thing to enter the territory and start working without even introducing yourself to the community, but it's quite another to depict them as asses for all the world to see. Local taxi driver Walid steps in and with the support of the community and a water-jet stone cutter cuts out the offending wall. His declared aim: to put it on Ebay and sell it to the highest bidder. We follow the journey of that big piece of concrete from the dusty streets of Bethlehem, across the ocean, to posh western auction houses, where it is put on sale to private collectors. In a sense, that wall is our central character and through it we discover a much larger story, that of a secret art market of walls, stolen from around the world.

Henri-Georges Clouzot's 1956 film, The Mystery of Picasso (Le Mystère Picasso), sets out some lofty goals for itself. In only 75 minutes, Clouzot seeks to uncover nothing less than the mystery, not merely of Picasso's process of painting, but of artistic production itself. We're talking metaphysical meta-projects here, the search for the core truth of capital-A Art. To this end, the film documents the production of 20 original works by Picasso.
Some, the earlier works in particular, are rendered primarily in black ink, with a splash of color here or there; others, certainly the final ones, explore a wide range of colors. All have that post-Picasso Picasso feel about them. You know, the almost regimented feel of paintings painted like "Picasso would have painted them," the kind of paintings more apt these days to draw yawns than elicit shocked gasps.
Slightly abstract in quality, with the occasional old school cubist flourish, the paintings feature many of the master's usual iconographic suspects: women and women's breasts, bullfighting, Mediterranean scenes.
Directed by: Henri-Georges Clouzot

Documentarian Thomas Riedelsheimer shows us Andy Goldsworthy as he creates art in natural settings using natural materials such as driftwood, ice, mud, leaves, and stones. Goldsworthy comments on his "earthworks" and occasionally responds to off screen questions from Riedelsheimer while he painstakingly builds his outdoors sculptures. With some exceptions, such as a winding stone wall that he built in Mountainville, NY, Goldsworthy's creations are intentionally mutable works.
We see how several of them fall apart, melt, or drift away due to exposure to the elements; we also see, for example, a complex structure of interconnected sticks collapse while Goldsworthy is still working on it.
Riedelsheimer takes us to Goldsworthy's home in Penport, Scotland, and to a French museum, but the emphasis of the film is on observing Goldsworthy at work.

When director Tony Silver and co-producer Henry Chalfant delivered the broadcast version of their prize-winning film to PBS in 1983, the world received its first full immersion in the phenomenon that had taken over New York City.
The urban landscape was physically transformed by graffiti artists who invented a new visual language to express both their individuality, and the voice of their community.
In STYLE WARS, New York's ramshackle subway system is their public playground, battleground, and spectacular artistic canvas.
As MC's, DJ's and B-boys rock the city with new sounds and new moves, we see street corner breakdance battles turn into performance art.
