There’s Something Wrong With Aunt Diane® Now Available for Pre-Order!

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

On Sunday, July 26, 2009, Diane Schuler left the campgrounds in upstate New York where she was vacationing with her family and set off toward home on Long Island, a drive she had made numerous times before. With her were five young children: her son, daughter, and three nieces. Four hours later, she drove the wrong way on the Taconic State Parkway for nearly two miles – eventually crashing into an oncoming SUV, killing herself and seven others. One of the worst motor-vehicle accidents in New York State history, the tragedy quickly became national news and her actions on that day, and in the past, were thrust under a microscope in a desperate search for answers.

In the aftermath, Diane Shuler was portrayed as a reckless drunk and a mother who cracked. But was she the monster the public made her out to be? Or the perfect wife and mother described by many who knew her.

Filmmaker Liz Garbus (the Oscar®-nominated “The Farm: Angola, USA”; HBO’s “Bobby Fischer Against the World”) explores this puzzling tragedy through interviews with never-before-heard witnesses and with Diane’s friends , as well as chronicling what transpired minute-by-minute. There’s Something Wrong with Aunt Diane reveals a complex and complicated case that has left those involved still really wondering what happened to Aunt Diane.

Saving Pelican 895®–Now Available on DVD!

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

The Louisiana state bird – the brown pelican – spent 45 years on the endangered species list. After years of being relocated back to its natural habitat, the April 2010 BP explosion and oil spill ravaged the brown pelican’s nesting homes on the Gulf of Mexico. As oil rushed in at millions of gallons each day, seven thousand birds died as a result of the environmental disaster. Three months after the spill, cleanup workers rescued 894 birds.

 Saving Pelican 895 tells the gripping story of the rescue of one of the oiled bird victims, pelican “LA 895” (named after its state and rescue number), by the Fort Jackson Oiled Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of Louisiana. Following LA 895 on his heartfelt journey — from his rescue as a young bird with oil-slicked feathers and little survival skills to his return to his natural habitat – the film intimately captures the marathon process that a life must endure to recover from such harsh conditions.

This beautifully shot 39-minute documentary from Emmy® – winning filmmakers Marc Levin and Daphne, is as much about the effects of the spill on the brown pelican as a species as it is about the Louisianans who give their hearts and souls to help find and heal their state’s birds.
