A real-life thriller, with a lot more at
stake than a stock price or a few careers."     -- David Chute, LA Weekly   Paul Devlin's Power Trip, adds three new awards and continues its theatrical run in Los Angeles at Laemmle Theaters, 4 weekends in November.   Please spread the word about this and the many other November screenings below. (more info at www.po     Electricity is Hope When an American energy company buys the formerly state-run
electricity company in Tbilisi in the Georgian Republic,
a comical clash of culture combusts.
  This top-notch, surprisingly humorous documentary provides
insight into today's headlines, with a graphic, on-the-ground
depiction of the challenges facing
globalization of multinational companies in emerging markets.

The story is told over two years of electrical outages, blackouts,
corrupt politicians and a host of creative, yet highly dangerous,
illegal connections.

Mindflank (60 min.)

What do a hip hop producer, a kid who does naked comedy, terrorists, and
faith healing have to do with each other? Find out in Mindflank, the true story
of a year in the life of 23 year old Te Devan "Rocketman" Kurzweil.  He is a
strange mix of Abbie Hoffman activism and Andy Kauffman who hit the streets
of New York last year to fulfill his dream of being a rap star. Soon after 9.11.01
Te discovered he had the ability to take away people's pain without touching
them. This 6'7 Jewish kid from New Jersey spends his spare time fighting
terrorists, healing on the streets and entertaining people with his naked
comedy (as seen recently on the Ricki Lake Show). Although his mission in
life is to mess with people's heads and wake them up from their consumption
induced coma, he maintains that his healing powers are genuine. He
continues to heal people anywhere and everywhere he goes.

A planet of pure rock* A planet for you to enjoy the adventure*


A refuge for the mountain culture in the Argentine Patagonian Andes

The Film

Planet Frey is the chronicle of the discovery of a very small universe, with a very particular set of characteristics, at the center of which we find the mountain hut Emilio Frey. It is here, in this small planet of granite towers and needles, that we become fully aware of the traditional Patagonian mountain culture. Climbers find in Frey an ideal setting for rock climbing, which is one of its main attractions. The filmmakers go slowly discovering the environment, and in doing so, they begin climbing and end up by feeling the challenge in their own skin whilst attempting some of the main summits in the area. Planeta Frey is visually majestic, with an agile edition and excellent music it is virtually a celebration and invites the spectator to enjoy the mountain.

The Company

DOCSUR is a new independent production company; the first one of its kind in Patagonia. The whole idea behind the company when it was formed was to contribute in the propagation of information and images of this vast, mysterious and virginal region of the planet, with the belief that the broadcast of its natural resources and riches, full of breathtaking contrasts, was the best way to contribute with the full appreciation and preservation of the region. The company*s members and professional crew, all fully identified with their native land, work hard to offer to the world high quality products, that represent as well the infinite diversity of contents found in this territory. Patagonia harbors exquisite manifestations of nature, adventure, mystery, history, science and culture, and the world must have a chance to get to know them.
