Amanda Mitchell's engrossing documentary takes an in-depth look at a             cutthroat, challenging, and high-pressure profession that goes largely           overlooked. As she explores the lives of stunt women Jeannie Epper and Zoe       Bell (who stand-in for Wonder Woman and Xena: Warrior Princess     respectively), Mitchell shows the difficulties involved in staying fit,        employed, and on-top in a male-dominated industry. Features interviews with    Lucy Lawless, Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Lynda Carter, and more.       Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at AFI Fest (2003).          Amanda Mitchell---USA---2003---210 mins.

For her ambitious debut, documentary filmmaker Maria Finitzo followed five adolescent girls for two years, resulting in this authentic portrait of young women at a pivotal point in their lives. Unlike the media, which depicts most girls of this age as passive, powerless, or overly sexualized, Five Girls focuses on the positive ways they adapt to challenges in their lives by understanding their choices, resisting pervasive cultural messages, and believing in their own strengths. "The girls are all right" (People Magazine). Produced in association with Kartemquin Films.   Maria Finitzo---USA---2001---120 mins.

John Carpenter's superior Halloween may have set the stage for the unfortunate wave of slasher movies that came in its wake, but this low-budget horror picture may have had an even greater influence on the genre--a dubious distinction to be sure. A group of teenaged camp counselors are stalked by a silent killer who wears a hockey mask in this crudely effective, grisly film that made a fortune and spawned nine (yes, nine!) sequels so far, with more in the planning stages. The cast of mainly unknown victims includes a young Kevin Bacon.

This collection contains two critically-acclaimed films from Quebec that reflect the unique culture and worldview of the region. With Congorama (Canada/Belgium/France, 2006, 105 mins.), director Philippe Falardeau toys with coincidence, contrivance, and near-mystical encounters in this comic drama with as many twists of fate as there are twists of plot. When Michel (Olivier Gourmet), a failed Belgian inventor, discovers he was adopted, he sets off to find his birth parents in Canada. There he encounters Louis (Paul Ahmarani), a kindred spirit who has much in common with Michel. Then in Andre  Forcier's A Wind from Wyoming (Canada, 1994, 100 mins.), Lea is dumped by her boxer boyfriend on the eve of her 18th birthday, her mother has just run off with her sweetheart, and her obese sister is obsessing over some celebrated author. So Lea enlists the help of a hack hypnotist to try to get her dysfunctional family back on track. In French with English subtitles.  Philippe Falardeau/Andre Forcier---Canada/Belgium/France---2006/1994---205 mins.

A great combination of horror and satire, as well as a thoughtful portrait of an outsider, Martin is one of George Romero's best films. The title character is a lonely teenager who comes to live with his eccentric uncle in Pittsburgh. The uncle believes Martin is a vampire and, at times, Martin seems to believe it as well, despite the fact that sunlight only bothers him slightly and garlic and crosses have no effect on him. He does drink blood, but his methods for obtaining it are all-too human and rather gruesome. The opening sequence is a genuine shocker.

This absorbing documentary follows Kenzo Okuzaki--a veteran of Japan's WWII campaign in New Guinea--as he searches out those responsible for the mysterious deaths of several soldiers in his unit. Though he holds Emperor Hirahito accountable for all the suffering caused by WWII, he painstakingly tracks down former military officers and accuses them of specific war crimes, often times abusing them verbally and physically. Director Kazua Hara's subtle cinema verite not only captures the zeal of Okuzaki's lifelong mission, but also exposes the atrocities committed by the Japanese military against its own soldiers. The film created such controversy in Japan upon release that no major distributor would touch it. "The most amazing piece of filmmaking" (Michael Moore). Winner of the Caligari Prize at the Berlin International Film Festival. In Japanese with English subtitles.

Comedy is not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the           dogmatic Dane Lars von Trier, but that's the most economical way to describe     The Boss of It All. Instead of harping on America, the director focuses    his cynicism on his homeland. Ravn (Peter Gantzler), the owner of an IT firm   in Copenhagen, wants to sell to an Icelandic company. They insist on meeting   the company's nonexistent president first, so Ravn hires an unemployed actor   (Jens Albinus) for the part and the farce begins. "The mere idea of an actor     convincingly impersonating a C.E.O. is inherently and deliciously              disrespectful of the sacred capitalistic system" (Andrew Sarris, The New    York Observer). In Danish and Icelandic with English subtitles.             Lars von Trier---Denmark/Sweden/France/Italy---2006---100 mins.
