Two sisters in the Philippines, show remarkable courage, in the face of death threats, by helping former Australian police and Special Forces officers rescue underage girls from Subic Bay’s sex bars, and investigate foreign child sex offenders. The girls, both abused by foreign men as children, had also worked in sex bars. They now work at PREDA, a human right’s foundation set up by Fr. Shay Cullen, an Irish Catholic priest. They help three former Australian Federal Police officers to investigate the man who allegedly sexually abused the younger sister when she was fourteen. They are joined by John Curtis, a former Special Forces officer who leads the sting operation to rescue young girls from two Subic Bay sex bars catering exclusively to foreign men.

Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You
Arguably the most influential creator, writer, and producer in the history of television, Norman Lear brought primetime into step with the times. Using comedy and indelible characters, his legendary 1970s shows such as All In the Family, Maude, Good Times, and The Jeffersons, boldly cracked open dialogue and shifted the national consciousness, injecting enlightened humanism into sociopolitical debates on race, class, creed, and feminism. Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You is the definitive chronicle of Mr. Lear’s life, work, and achievements, but it is so much more than an arm’s-length, past-tense biopic; at 93, Mr. Lear is as vital and engaged as he ever was. Top-notch cinéma vérité documentarians Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing (Jesus Camp, 12th & Delaware, DETROPIA) seize the opportunity to fashion a dynamic portrait that matches the spirit of their subject. Breaking down the fourth wall to create an evocative collage where past and present intermingle, they reveal a psychologically rich man whose extraordinary contributions emerge from both his personal story and a dialogue with the world.

Pin Up! The Movie
Contemporary pin up girls, and the women who inspire them. Drawing from the art of Gil Elvgren and Alberto Varga, and the style sense of Marilyn Monroe and Bettie Page, the pin up is, in the words of art historian Maria Elena Buszek, “a uniquely American phenomena.” The modern pinup is enticing, captivating, independent, and omnipresent–a thoroughly 21st century woman. This documentary spends more than two years in the pin up scene, introducing us to women who are bold, confident and, yes, very modern. You can look at the pin up. But she’s the one calling the shots.

Life, Animated

At three years old, a chatty, energetic little boy named Owen Suskind ceased to speak, disappearing into autism with apparently no way out. Almost four years passed and the only stimuli that engaged Owen were Disney films. Then one day, his father donned a puppet—Iago, the wisecracking parrot from Aladdin—and asked “what’s it like to be you?” And poof! Owen replied, with dialogue from the movie.

Life, Animated tells the remarkable story of how Owen found in Disney animation a pathway to language and a framework for making sense of the world. By evocatively interweaving classic Disney sequences with verite scenes from Owen’s life, the film explores how identification and empathy with characters like Simba, Jafar, and Ariel forge a conduit for him to understand his feelings and interpret reality. Beautiful, original animations further give form to Owen’s fruitful dialogue with the Disney oeuvre as he imagines himself heroically facing adversity in a tribe of sidekicks. With an arsenal of narratives at his disposal, Owen rises to meet the challenges of adulthood in this moving coming-of-age tale.
