Sound It Out is a portrait of the customers and staff of the last independent record store in Stockton - On -Tees in North East England.
"Those devotees, self aware and amusing about their obessions include Shane, perhaps the biggest fan the British band Status Quo has ever had 'Big Dave’, who D'J's for himself and friends in a shed behind his home; and Sam and Gareth, two alarmingly articulate metalheads. Tom Butchart, the store's owner tends to their particular manias with a thoughtful respect, and a shared sense of passion suffuses every exchange...music fills in the colors, and the ragged, tiny store whose walls are lined with posters and old 45s is a haven, even a shrine. Like a mint pressing in a bargain bin Sound It Out is a rare find.” - Daniel Gold, NEW YORK TIMES

Stryker is the story of a brutal turf war between two street gangs in Winnipeg's North End. Omar (Ryan Black), the mixed blood leader of the ABS (Asian Bomb Squad), dominates the ’hood with his crew of Filipino enforcers. His nemesis, Mama Ceece (Deena Fontaine), is the girl-thug leader of the Indian Posse. She has just been released from jail and is determined to regain control of her neighbourhood. "Stryker" is Canadian slang for a prospective gang member.
This film follows one Stryker (Kyle Henry), a 14-year-old Native arsonist from a northern reserve whose arrival in the city serves as a catalyst in this fierce battle.

In this entertaining sequel to Who Killed The Electric Car?, director Chris Paine takes us behind the scenes with the world’s leading auto industry visionaries – Elon Musk of Tesla, Bob Lutz of General Motors and Carlos Ghosn of Nissan as they race to create the best electric car. Through solid research and interviews with journalists and consumers he has created a terrifically entertaining look at the reality of a consumer driven electric car.
“Revenge is powered by human drama and by three very different charismatic auto-industry leaders in the risky, process of resurrecting the battery-powered consumer car. The film navigates the bailout process, exploiting its twists and turns to create maximum tension." - Globe and Mail
“Riveting…Highly entertaining.” - Vanity Fair
