All in This Tea

All In This Tea takes us into the world of tea by following world-renowned tea expert David Lee Hoffman to some of the most remote regions of China in search of the best handmade teas in the world. Hoffman is obsessed; during his youth, he spent four years with Tibetan monks in Nepal, which included a friendship with the Dalai Lama, and was introduced to some of the finest tea -- that golden nectar with which we can taste the distant past.

Huey Lewis and the News: Before

This film follows one of the world's top rock-and-roll bands of the 80s and a crew of fifty technicians to the Bahamas for the making of a music video for their number one hit single, 'Stuck With You' for their album, 'FORE!' Blank takes us behind the scenes for an off-beat look at what happens when a song is transformed into visuals and musicians are transformed into actors.

Innocents Abroad

A warmly amusing look at a bus-full of American tourists on a whirlwind tour of Europe. The eclectic soundtrack includes Mozart, Bob Dylan, Sandy Denny, Jonathan Richman, others.

Puamana

Aloha! This gentle portrait of Auntie Irmgard Farden Aluli, one of Hawaii's best loved composers, focuses on Hawaiian women's contributions to family structure, art, music and dance. An intimate glimpse into the real culture of the islands.

The Arch

When The Arch opened in Paris, it received the most consistently positive reviews of any film to ever play in the 'City of Light'. Set in 17th Century China, this film is considered the first art film in the Chinese language. Deals with the sexual repression of a beautiful widow ...'the ludicrousness of mankind, the futility of intelligence.'

Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe

Yes, German film director Werner Herzog really does eat his shoe to fulfill a vow to fellow filmmaker Errol Morris — boldly exemplifying his belief that people must have the guts to attempt what they dream of. Inspiring.

Ziveli! Medicine for the Heart

This little-known Blank gem is a portrait of the Serbian-American communities of Chicago and California, highlighting their history in this country, their music, dancing and religion.
