At an absurdly self-indulgent student film festival, the directors of the (mostly terrible) short films start getting killed off one by one and a budding British documentary filmmaker decides to investigate.
This short film was packaged on video with Hartley's featurette "Surviving Desire." It affectionately examines the lives of a group of "young, middle-class, white, college-educated, unskilled, broke, drunk" Brookylnites who would love to make something of their lives -- assuming they can pay the rent first.
Deep in the Ukrainian countryside, the filmmaker becomes a participant of a radical group trying to discover happiness through mathematical formulas. Can they succeed, or do dreams of utopia turn into a veritable nightmare?
In a future decadent world where "the Program" terminated with creativity, humankind has taken refuge in virtual reality to live their dreams and adventures as the real world falls apart.
Twenty years after A Brief History of Time flummoxed the world with its big numbers and black holes, its author, Stephen Hawking, concedes that the "ultimate theory" he'd believed to be imminent - which would conclusively explain the origins of life, the universe and everything - remains frustratingly elusive. Yet despite his failing health and the seeming impossibility of the task, Hawking is still devoted to his work; an extraordinary drive that's captured here in fleeting interview snippets and footage of the scientist sharing a microwave dinner with some fawning PhD students. Though the pop-science tutorials that dapple the first of this two-part biography are winningly perky, Hawking, alas, remains as tricky to fathom as his boggling quantum whatnots
"The Einstein Theory of Relativity" is the short version (587 m) of the lost American long version (1219 m) of Hanns Walter Kornblum's original German feature "Die Grundlagen der Einsteinschen Relativitäts-Theorie" from 1922 that is also lost.
A talk by Dr. Glen-Martin Swartwout, introducing his clinical model as a roadmap to healing ourselves and our culture based on the observations of European Biological Medicine including Bioelectronics of Vincent, German Electroacupuncture methods (EAV, Vegatest Method), Homotoxicology of Reckeweg which is founded in embryology, new research on biologically structured water, and many other pearls gleaned from over 30 years of practical investigation, integration and synthesis of theories and models of life, healing, consciousness, development and the nature of existence. This video is the first in a series introducing key aspects of the model.
Hugh and Erwin were strangers when a chance encounter changed both of their lives over the course of 10 minutes. Hugh's skeptical sarcasm toward Erwin's peculiar fascination with quantum theory turns dead serious when Erwin provides answers to Hugh's inexplicable life.
What I wanted to explain in my movie was to show the pain that poeple go through when they are not sure of themselves in a relation. In this way, 'Men Make Women Crazy Theory' focuses on the pain of having to face a person whose love doesn't come up to what you have expected. - Zoe Cassavetes

Bachir "Chiren" Boumaaza, aka Athene, is an extravagant Internet celebrity, with over 240 million upload views, and a professional gamer. If you haven't heard of him, he's a record holder in World of Warcraft and online poker, and plays the main character in a series of videos on a popular YouTube channel with well over 340,000 subscribers. Athene is known for crashing gaming servers, with the aid of his massive army of followers, who just love to be part of the controversy and trouble Athene is so well known for. Over the past year, we haven't heard much from him, and it seemed as though he had fallen off the grid. Recently Chiren broke his silence, and announced that his disappearance was due to being very busy, conducting new research in the fields of quantum mechanics, general and special relativity, and neuroscience. He continued to say that this research is culminating in significant new discoveries that will be presented in a documentary named Athene's Theory of Everything.
The Theory of Everything: "Michio Kaku & Steven Hawking have interesting ideas, however, this video veers less to the direction of Darwin & the "extremely" improbable -- more in the direction perhaps of those such as Sir Roger Penrose (a Steven Hawking's mentor), Steven Meyer (ID), Niels Bohr (atomic structure), Sir John Eccles (Nobel Prize for consciousness), Max Planck (father of Quantum Physics), Albert Einstein (Relativity), Thomas Aquinas, Aristotle (teacher of Alexander the Great), Plato (student of Aristotle) -- and (above all) -- Jesus Christ.

This captivating documentary from the History Channel recounts the development of iconic physicist Albert Einstein's provocative theory of general relativity. Some 200 years after the introduction of Isaac Newton's law of universal gravitation, Einstein rocked the science community with his theory, which suggests that gravity is a warping of space-time caused by the presence of matter.
This timely, bold set of one-on-one interviews presents two of the most venerable figures from the American Left—renowned historian Howard Zinn and linguist and philosopher Noam Chomsky—each reflecting upon his own life and political beliefs.
