American cowboy Casey Tibbs, a nine-time world champion who left home at the age of 13 in 1942 due to his father’s disdain of rodeo, had a rags-to-riches life after his groundbreaking spurring lick was developed and he was launched to stardom. Akin to riding a wild bronc in competition, his unpredictable journey had its grand victories and cheerless crashes. Get ready to “Let’er Buck!”

We visit one of the teams building this technology at their top secret testing site in the Las Vegas desert, and in the process unpack how Americans have forgotten to dream when it comes to infrastructure.

After a long journey through space the last two believers are about to reach their destination. Ananda, the space archaeologist, hopes to prove that Earth is not a myth and that all mankind did originated from the same tiny blue planet - but mostly he wants to prove his colleagues and his father wrong and to make the biggest discovery in history. Yamaka, the outcast rabbi, is searching for something subtler. He believes that Jerusalem is not just a mystical idea, but an actual place, where he might find the feeling of holiness missing in his life. Together they followed the clues and arrived at their destination, but instead of a living planet and a holy city, they find only the fragments of what once was...

MELODY MAKERS tells the true story of the rise and fall of the most influential music publication in history. Melody Maker began as a weekly jazz musician’s trade paper in the 1920’s and by the 1960’s became an internationally recognized “must read” for rock n’ roll fans and musicians alike. Melody Maker magazine became a pop culture phenomenon and this was, to a great extent, due to its Chief Contributing Photographer, Barrie Wentzell (1965-1975) and his black and white photos that blistered across the front cover. MELODY MAKERS features candid interviews with the Melody Maker journalists, musicians and other subjects who worked behind the scenes who infuse the film with humour, and offer new insight about the cultural significance of the paper at a time when rock n’ roll was in its infancy and Melody Maker magazine was revered as the bible of rock n’ roll during this dynamic, formative and most controversial period in music history. Melody Makers features a rare classic rock photo archive to capture this unique period in music history when confidences were kept, and journalists and Barrie had unprecedented access - pre paparazzi - before the national press began picking in the idiosyncrasies of celebrity. Melody Makers is chock full of anecdotal stories and the true stories from behind pictures.

“Ayre” is a namesake piece. It’s also a message to “look up from the device and get back to nature and the Spirit” song. A band member commented, “We love cell phones and devices but there is whole world out there waiting to communicate with us, if we will just listen.” The Band loves to showcase the beauty of their state in their films and they are excited to demonstrate the strength of Utah’s diverse culture built around the blessings of freedom. When asked about the song’s meaning, one replied, “When you stand at the cliffs of Cedar Breaks… if you look up at night or down in the day, either way you can see millions of years in the past as well as the endless possibilities in either direction. You can look across the vast waves of green cedars that are now, and realize in the “Myst” of all that time that you have choices to make that will affect generations. You realize that you must step forward with meaning and intent.”

The music video “Fawn” is from Mira Wunder’s new single “Licht Aus” is centered around the theme of mother-daughter relationships. The video was shot with the Miscanthus field in the south of Germany, giving the historical look of an American plantation. This location itself, acts like a third character, giving the feeling of imprisonment and entrapment. The intimate setting augments the complex emotional world of a mother and her grown daughter. Only at the end of the film do they find each other, when the rebellious daughter breaks her self-built walls against her mother. They, for the first time, begin to pursue a common goal, symbolized by the common hunt for a chicken.
