Show Me A Hero Blu-ray with Digital Copy              Show Me A Hero DVD

In an America generations removed from the greatest civil rights struggles of the 1960s, the young mayor of a mid-sized American city is faced with a federal court order that says he must build a small number of low-income housing units in the white neighborhoods of his town. His attempt to do so tears the entire city apart, paralyzes the municipal government and, ultimately, destroys the mayor and his political future.

From creator David Simon (HBO®’s Treme® and The Wire®) and director Paul Haggis (Crash®), and based on the nonfiction book of the same name by Lisa Belkin, the six-part HBO® Miniseries presentation Show Me a Hero® explores notions of home, race and community through the lives of elected officials, bureaucrats, activists and ordinary citizens in Yonkers, NY.

Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life & Times of Katrina Gilbert® is now available on DVD!

Monday, October 13th, 2014

Filmed in Chattanooga, TN, Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life & Times of Katrina Gilbert® is a personal journey that follows a year in the life of Katrina Gilbert, a 30-year-old woman earning just above the minimum wage as a certified nursing assistant. Katrina never expected to be a single mother of three young children, living paycheck to paycheck and barely scraping by. But after leaving her husband Jeremy – whose addiction to painkillers destroyed their marriage and gutted their finances – Katrina finds herself living in a trailer and providing sole support to her children. Overworked, underpaid and uninsured, Katrina’s saving graces are a budding relationship with a single father facing similar circumstances and the Chambliss Center, a subsidized day-care center that provides affordable daycare. A microcosm of the ordeal faced by some 70 million women and children in the U.S. today, Paycheck to Paycheck is executive produced by Maria Shriver, and is a component of the recently released, multi-platform project, The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink.

Questioning Darwin™ DVD Ships Today!

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

Literal and creationist interpretation of the Bible is the fastest-growing branch of Christianity in the U.S. and around the world, with 46% of Americans believing the Genesis account of creation is the literal truth. Directed by award-winning British documentarian Antony Thomas (HBO’s For Neda), Questioning Darwin takes an in-depth look at the views of creationist Christians, who reject Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, while also examining how Darwin handled the question of God as he developed his theory of natural selection in the mid-1800s. Featuring interviews with Darwin historians and biographers, ministers and creationist Christians, and Darwin’s own words through his letters and writings, the film is a balanced examination of a 150-year debate, which has only increased in the last two decades with the rise of evangelical Christianity in the U.S. The film also illuminates little-known facts about Darwin’s life, placing one of the greatest scientific minds in historical context. By turns thought provoking and infuriating, Questioning Darwin will inspire debate among believers on both sides of the issue.
