CRUMB (1995)



1995 | 120 minutes | Color | English | Directed by Terry Zwigoff


Terry Zwigoff’s landmark 1995 film is an intimate documentary portrait of the underground artist Robert Crumb, whose unique drawing style and sexually and racially provocative subject matter have made him a household name in popular American art. Zwigoff candidly and colorfully delves into the details of Crumb’s incredible career and life, including his family of reclusive eccentrics, some of the most remarkable people you’ll ever see on-screen. At once a profound biographical portrait, a riotous examination of a man’s controversial art, and a devastating look at a troubled family, Crumb is a genuine American original.

Michio Kaku: The Universe in a Nutshell



2011| | The Floating University | Directed / Produced by Jonathan Fowler, Kathleen Russell, and Elizabeth Rodd



Kaku's latest book is The Future of the Mind: The Scientific Quest to Understand, Enhance, and Empower the Mind (http://goo.gl/kGrVaR).

The Universe in a Nutshell: The Physics of Everything
Michio Kaku, Henry Semat Professor of Theoretical Physics at CUNY

What if we could find one single equation that explains every force in the universe? Dr. Michio Kaku explores how physicists may shrink the science of the Big Bang into an equation as small as Einstein's "e=mc^2." Thanks to advances in string theory, physics may allow us to escape the heat death of the universe, explore the multiverse, and unlock the secrets of existence. While firing up our imaginations about the future, Kaku also presents a succinct history of physics and makes a compelling case for why physics is the key to pretty much everything.

LO and BEHOLD



2016-I-28 | Color | English | 98 min | Directed by Werner Herzog
Legendary master filmmaker Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams) examines the past, present and constantly evolving future of the Internet in Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World. Working with NETSCOUT, a world leader in-real time service assurance and cybersecurity, which came aboard as a producer and led him into a new world, Herzog conducted original interviews with cyberspace pioneers and prophets such as PayPal and Tesla co-founder Elon Musk, Internet protocol inventor Bob Kahn, and famed hacker Kevin Mitnick. 
These provocative conversations reveal the ways in which the online world has transformed how virtually everything in the real world works, from business to education, space travel to healthcare, and the very heart of how we conduct our personal relationships. In the words of executive producer Jim McNiel, “It’s a journey even Werner, with his immense imagination and inquisitive mind, didn’t expect. Unless you have lived in the technology space, you don’t yet fully appreciate what dwells there.” Herzog adds: “It is one of the biggest revolutions we as humans are experiencing.”

The Engines That Came in from the Cold



2001-III-1 | Channel 4 | 50 min | Written and directed by Dan Clifton


The first of a new run of Channel 4's science documentary strand, this film tells the story of how the Russians, at the height of the Cold War space race, developed a very remarkable kind of rocket engine. Not only was the technology different from that used by the Americans, it was actually better. When half a dozen of these engines were rediscovered 20 years after they were built, they were found - to the amazement of the American rocket design establishment - to be superior in power to anything NASA had come up with in the intervening decades. What's more, they worked. Now, incredibly, Russian engines are being used to launch American rockets.
