The Dawn Wall
In January, 2015, American rock climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson captivated the world with their effort to climb the Dawn Wall, a seemingly impossible 3,000 foot rock face in Yosemite National Park, California. The pair lived on the sheer vertical cliff for weeks, igniting a frenzy of global media attention. But for Tommy Caldwell, the Dawn Wall was much more than just a climb. It was the culmination of a lifetime defined by overcoming obstacles. At the age of 22, the climbing prodigy was taken hostage by rebels in Kyrgyzstan. Shortly after, he lost his index finger in an accident, but resolved to come back stronger.
When his marriage fell apart, he escaped the pain by fixating on the extraordinary goal of free climbing the Dawn Wall. Blurring the line between dedication and obsession, Caldwell and his partner Jorgeson spend six years meticulously plotting and practicing their route.

Metallica: Some Kind of Monster
A music documentary about Metallica's making of their album 'St. Anger' and the difficulties they had to go through in the process. Joe Berlinger shot over 1200 hours and followed one of the most successful heavy-metal band in history around night and day for over a year to create this documentary. It tells the trials and tribulations of the group as they cut their first album in six years. The members of the band submitted to two years of intensive group therapy to work through conflicts in their 20-year working relationship.
QT8: The First Eight
The film chronicles the life of Quentin Tarantino, from his start at Video Archives up to the releasing of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The documentary features interviews from his frequent collaborators of his films. The filmmaker Richard Linklater explores Quentin Tarantino from his trendsetting work on Reservoir Dogs and examines how his films have changed the movie making landscape forever.
Timothy Treadwell's death was as sensational as his life: Having presumed he could live safely among the grizzly bears of the Alaskan wilderness, the outdoorsman and author (Among Grizzlies)--along with his partner, Amie Huguenard--was eventually killed and devoured by one of the very animals to whom he had devoted years of study.
In telling this story, Werner Herzog relies considerably on Treadwell's own video footage, shot during his time in the wild. The famed German director takes Treadwell's story into unexpected emotional frontiers and startling landscapes of the mind. Treadwell is an intriguing, infuriating, perhaps even tragic figure. But Herzog himself is equally compelling, and this brilliant film is just one reason why.
