Yet, on the day of Ali's procession, more than 100,000 people lined the streets of Louisville to celebrate his life, and an estimated one billion people worldwide watched events like Ali's memorial, held in the packed KFC YUM. Stories of the Louisville Lip's wit, generosity, swagger, and commitment to justice are retold by President Bill Clinton, Billy Crystal, Lonnie Ali, and others.

"Hardcore Devo Live!"

DEVO was among the most thought-provoking bands to emerge in the aftermath of punk, but before hits like "Whip It," DEVO worked in the basements and garages of Akron, Ohio, to make raw, unfiltered music that the group called "Hardcore DEVO." In the summer of 2014, DEVO did 10 shows performing these seminal pre-fame songs, created between 1974 and 1977 and rarely played since then. Shot at the Fox Theater in Oakland, California, this exciting concert film captures these groundbreaking artists performing the songs that started it all, interwoven with interviews revealing the history of the band.

Brooklyn Castle
(102 min) 2012 USA Katie Dellamaggiore, director
BROOKLYN CASTLE tells the stories of five members of the chess team at a below-the-poverty-line inner city junior high school that has won more national championships than any other in the country. The film follows the challenges these kids face in their personal lives as well as on the chessboard, and is as much about the sting of their losses as it is about the anticipation of their victories. Ironically, the biggest obstacle thrust upon them arises not from other competitors but from recessionary budget cuts to all the extracurricular activities at their school. BROOKLYN CASTLE shows how these kids’ dedication to chess magnifies their belief in what is possible for their lives. After all, if they can master the world’s most difficult game, what can’t they do?
