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.

I Am Sam Kinison
I Am Sam Kinison 2017
I Am Sam Kinison is a feature-length documentary film exploring the life and legacy of shock comic Sam Kinison, a former Pentecostal preacher turned stand-up comic who repurposed his pulpit-honed chops to the brazen rock 'n roll world of MTV-era comedy. Following a steep trajectory to fame, excess, despair and near-redemption, Sam meets a sudden and early death when struck by a drunk driver in 1992. Using extensive clips from his comedy specials that cover some of his favorite topics including marriage, women, homosexuality, God, religion and world hunger Sam tells much of his story himself in a barrage of comedic feints and blows, shrieking and misanthropic riffing. Added perspective is provided by a dynamic cast of friends, family, fellow comics and celebrity party-mates, augmented by animated sequences that illustrate and add color to energetic and often hilarious interviews. Key interviews include the inspired storytelling of Jay Leno, Bill Burr, Ted Nugent, Charlie Sheen, Joe Rogan, Corey Feldman, Bob Saget, Tommy Chong, Ron Jeremy, and others. Starting with a childhood head injury, Sam's story plots a course of failure, from his time as a Pentecostal preacher, culminating in a humiliating marriage. Finally stepping onto a comedy club stage in Houston, he finds his voice and true calling but it takes years of struggle before mainstream audiences are ready to hear his message. Yet with all the unbridled profligacy of his eventual fame and fortune, Sam never loses his faith in God and his raucous story is replete with biblical themes fueled by sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. I Am Sam Kinison shocks, shticks and screams its way through a life and a wild career that shattered the status quo and changed comedy forever.

More Than T
More Than T 2017
Finding one's path in life is infinitely complex, yet many trans people are externally defined solely by that small part of their journey. Through textured vignettes, collaborators Silas Howard (Transparent, By Hook or By Crook) and Jen Richards (Her Story, Frameline40) illuminate themes of family, resilience, self-determination, and finding your calling, through the perspective of trans people of color. Defense attorney Mia Yamamoto, who was imprisoned in a Japanese American internment camp as a child, illuminates a fight for human dignity that includes-and goes beyond-her later-in-life gender transition. Reverend Louis Mitchell survived the decimation of his community during the start of AIDS, and now finds himself spiritual leader to white, straight, cisgender seniors who accept him in his entirety. Joanna Cifredo advocates for other trans women, refusing to rest until her story of survival is the norm and not the exception. Gizelle Messina teaches others how to find beauty in themselves-and at her M·A·C studio-finding family and self-acceptance through work that is more than skin-deep. Octavia Lewis mentors Ti'aira Chanel, her own experiences providing the basis for family and collaboration, while Charles Whitewolf finds his voice, chosen family, and inspiration through Theatre of the Oppressed NYC. The subjects of this affirming and uplifting Showtime documentary series embody the familiar themes of discovering and understanding not only oneself, but also the full life that can be created out of a struggle for survival.
