    Released 2005
    The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill celebrates the urban wilderness in San Francisco. Bohemian Mark Bittner has been searching for his direction in life. Homeless and disappointed in his music career, he begins feeding the feral flock of parrots that have made Telegraph Hill their home. The parrots are primarily Red-masked Parakeets, descended from pets that were either released or that escaped from their owners. Bittner watches over the birds and sees their behavior sometimes mimics that of humans. He seeks out birders and avian experts to learn more about the flock. When his care of the birds attracts national and international attention, the flock becomes endangered. Bittner works to ensure the birds, who he states are perfectly capable of caring for themselves, never learn to depend on humans for their survival. The 2003 documentary, directed by Judy Irving, is based on the book by Bittner. It won the 2006 Genesis Award for documentary film.moreless

    Aliens of the Deep is a 2005 documentary that explores the deepest parts of the ocean as they have never before been seen. American film director James Cameron accompanies a group of Russian and NASA scientists as they descend deep into both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans to explore a variety of hydrothermal vents. Though it was long thought impossible that life could exist in such a forbidding environment, Cameron and his team discover a spectacular diversity of life thousands of feet beneath the ocean's surface. Despite the utter lack of sunlight, the crew finds giant worms, vast colonies of shrimp and armies of blind white crabs that are able to live despite crushing water pressures that would instantly kill a human being. Cameron and the NASA scientists speculate that the life that exists around these vents is very likely the same sort of life that would exist on other planets, making Aliens of the Deep a fascinating primer on the possible existence of extraterrestrials.moreless

    A fresh, social and political look at the $57 billion-a-year Adult Entertainment Industry and its effects on 3 subjects who agree to view porn 1 hour a day for 30 days. Strip club owners, strippers, porn stars, top-of-their-game experts and 3 unknowing subjects hammer out an exclusive look into the soul of the porn biz. Director, Lance Tracy, IMDB (Best Director, NY International Film & Video Festival, and 5-Telly winner) maturely balances humor, shocking honesty, science and entertainment. THE ON-CAMERA EXPERIMENT: THREE SUBJECTS: A single man and a married man are separately subjected to a steady diet of porn, strip and sex clubs for 4 weeks. The wife has plenty to say about her husband's voluntary exposure to porn. The subjects consistently fill out behavior and attitudinal surveys. With the help of several research experts, the filmmakers carefully document the results. Simultaneously and independently, a major university conducts a parallel study with 100 college students. The results are staggering and conclusive. THE EXPERTS: In November of 2004, conservative Senator Brownback held a Senate hearing on the effects of pornography. He invited 4 experts who all testified that porn has only negative effects. This ticked off the porn and sexologist industries that see nothing wrong with it. Host & director, Lance Tracy hunts down these experts for a one-on-one. He also gives the porn industry a chance to respond to the hearing. Larry Flynt, Ron Jeremy, Nina Hartley, Sharon M...moreless

Meanwhile, on the east coast, Weather Service personnel pilot an airplane straight through the middle of Hurricane Emily.
