Limbo

Eliot Rausch's film exposes the lives of 3 undocumented students, living in the US without legal status.

Through their lens, this is their story.

The Secret Life of the Bocage

The rather ordinary-looking bocage landscape has an extraordinary tale to tell. This familiar landscape is man-made, created centuries ago and maintained ever since. Yet it teems with wildlife.

How have the plants and animals of the hedges and meadows adapted to the presence of human beings? What invisible ties link the human and natural worlds? Ancient bocage landscapes are one of Europe's distinctive ecosystems.

The Manhattan Project Hd1080P

by Cameron Michael

This time-lapse production has been a wild and exhilarating ride, with a lot of physical work lugging my 120-130 pounds of gear around all of Manhattan. I bent (broke) some laws and made a ton of friends. Thank you all for your support and please feel free to help out a starving artist and share this video with the world.


The Beatles: Budokan Hall, Live 1966

1080p. From June 30 to July 2 of 1966, the Beatles performed five concerts at the Budokan arena in the Japanese capital of Tokyo. The band's arrival in Japan, originally due for June 28, was greatly delayed by a hurricane, and they did not land in the country until 3 AM of the following day. All told, the five concerts attracted 25,000 fans, with all shows selling out, and the telecast delivered an astounding 60% television rating. This was reported heavily in the Japanese media, who characterized the unexpected fan frenzy as a "Beatles hurricane," obviously referring to the weather that preceded their arrival.
