What Happened in Vegas
What Happened in Vegas 2017
While on vacation in Las Vegas, television professional Ramsey Denison is walking through a parking lot when he sees a group of police officers abusing a handcuffed suspect. Shocked by what he's witnessing, he calls 911 to report police brutality -- only to find himself attacked by police and arrested. After reading a police report filled with lies to justify his arrest, Ramsey discovers that the video documenting his attack by LVMPD officers has conveniently gone missing. Shocked by the LVMPD's blatant lack of accountability, Ramsey begins investigating a terrifying pattern of police corruption and discovers that behind the shimmering surface of Las Vegas lies a police department with individuals willing to go to any lengths to cover up crimes. What Happened in Vegas exposes the truth surrounding three murder cases in which all of the victims were shot by cops. The film graphically portrays the shooting deaths of Trevon Cole, a small time drug dealer; Erik Scott, a decorated ex-army officer and West Point graduate, and Stanley Gibson, a disoriented combat army veteran suffering from PTSD. With the help of the victims families, this shocking documentary weaves its way through a maze of lies from top LVMPD officials. Even in the shadow of this deep corruption, we meet heroic LVMPD officers who fight to improve relations within the community while keeping the streets safe. What Happened in Vegas takes a deep look at what is going wrong and what, if anything, can be done to fix it. This explosive expose is a searing examination of out of control cops and abuse of power. This is the movie police couldn't erase. Written by Ramsey Denison

The Blockchain and Us
The Blockchain and Us 2017
When the Wright brothers invented the airplane in 1903, it was hard to imagine there would be over 500,000 people traveling in the air at any point in time today. In 2008, Satoshi Nakamoto invented Bitcoin and the blockchain. For the first time in history, his invention made it possible to send money around the globe without banks, governments or any other intermediaries. Satoshi is a mystery character, and just like the Wright brothers, he solved an unsolvable problem. The concept of the blockchain isn't very intuitive. But still, many people believe it is a game changer. Despite its mysterious beginnings, the blockchain might be the airplane of our time. Manuel Stagars portrays this exciting technology in interviews with software developers, cryptologists, researchers, entrepreneurs, consultants, VCs, authors, politicians, and futurists from the United States, Canada, Switzerland, the UK, and Australia. How can the blockchain benefit the economies of nations? How will it change society? What does this mean for each of us? The Blockchain and Us does not explain the technology but starts a conversation about its potential wider implications. The film deliberately poses more questions than it answers. For a deep dive, see all full-length interviews from the film stream on the official website of the film.
Trophy is a startling exploration of the evolving relationship between big-game hunting and wildlife conservation that will leave you debating what is right, what is wrong and what is necessary in order to save the great species of the world from extinction.

Easy to Learn, Hard to Master: The Fate of Atari
Easy to Learn, Hard to Master: The Fate of Atari 2017
Before Google, Yahoo and even Apple, before the Silicon Valley cliché of informal dress code, skateboards running the corridors and wild creativity became commonplace, one company embodied the digital economy lifestyle and business style: the one firm coming out of the Age of Aquarius was Atari. The story of Atari is two-thirds the story of Nolan Bushnell, founder and visionary, and one-third the first and probably biggest boom and bust of the new economy some 20 years before the new economy even existed. Atari was showing that technology is cool, way before the personal computer revolution took place and they were reaching out to an ever-growing audience with something that is still cool today: video games. Atari literally introduced the digital world to the mass consciousness. Nolan Bushnell and Atari have a huge collection of firsts: the first successful video game company, the first coin-op video game ever, the first general purpose console to win the market, the first marriage between video games and movie industry in the history of entertainment, the fastest growing company in history, the biggest industry crash ever, the weirdest anecdotes in Silicon Valley, the coolest brand on the planet... Atari is a story to be told for two main reasons: it is pure fun and it is impressively educational. Going through the ups and downs of Atari's ride, one can learn when and how our relationship with the digital world was born (ahead of Apple, Commodore, Microsoft and even the Homebrew Computer Club), how the 100 billion dollars a year video game industry was born, what to do to make your idea successful, what to do to screw it all up, whether to sell your baby to a giant major or not, what not to do to preserve your market from crashing and many others interesting topics.

Canvey: The Promised Island
Canvey: The Promised Island 2018
The Stamford Hill area of London has been home to the largest Ultra-Orthodox Jewish community in Europe since the late 1800s. However, soaring rents, cramped housing, large families and low employment rates are forcing many members of the community to consider moving elsewhere. After a previous attempt by some to relocate from Stamford Hill to Milton Keynes failed, a new destination for those desperately seeking more space at less cost has presented itself - Canvey Island, Essex. Canvey Island is 70 per cent white, predominately Christian, one of the 5 most pro-Brexit wards in Britain and in 2013 was voted the most English place in Britain. The island may seem like an unlikely place for members of the Hasidic community to put down roots, but they have found the most unlikely of champions who is determined to do all he can to assist them. The man who gave the world Canvey Island's finest exports, Chris Fenwick a lifelong Islander, local pub landlord and manager of classic pub rock band Dr. Feelgood has devised a plan to integrate the communities by inviting the newcomers to a gig at his pub, taking the Hasidic children on a guided tour of the Island and with the help of the Reverend David Tudor and incoming mayor Barry Campagna organising a dinner party for the two very different communities. Mutual understanding is top of the menu, but will the Hasidic guests turn up? Will the Islanders learn to love their new neighbours? Written by Mark_a_Wood
Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story
Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story 2017
Hedy Lamarr was a Hollywood movie star who was hailed as the most beautiful and glamorous in the world. However, that was only the surface that tragically obscured her astounding true talents. Foremost of them was her inventive genius that a world blinded by her beauty could not recognize as far back as her youth in Austria with her homemade gadgets. This film explores Lamarr's life which included escaping a loveless marriage on the eve of Nazi Germany's conquest of her nation to a new career in Hollywood. However, her intellectual contributions were denied their due even when she offered them in the service of her new home during World War II. Only after years of career and personal decline in her troubled life would Lamarr learn that her staggering aptitude created brilliant engineering concepts that revolutionized telecommunications, which forced the world to realize the hidden abilities of a woman it had so unfairly underestimated.
