It only hurts until you laugh.

All Joking Aside


CHARLENE MURRAY wants nothing more than to become a stand-up comedian, but life won't stop getting in the way of her ambitions. From her soul-sucking job, to the heartbreaking estrangement from her family, to that bully who heckles her first amateur night gig, she just can't catch a break. But when she discovers that the heckler, BOB CARPENTER, actually used to be a big name on the comedy circuit before his career crashed and burned, she turns to him for mentorship; a request that is quickly shot down by the now grizzled barfly. But Charlene is tenacious, and over time the two find something in each other that has been missing in their own lives, a friendship is born, and Charlene learns to find funny in places she never expected.

Behind every great display is a dedicated designer...


In the confines of the show windows at “Wedgely's for Women” Judy Thibeault is queen. For more than 35 years she has been creating the eye-catching displays that have drawn several generations of the City's women through Wedgely's doors and played a huge role in making the store the success it is. However, in recent weeks the precision which she exercises over her mannequins and their environments is being disrupted in increasingly strange and inexplicable ways and every morning she arrives at work faced with a new and frustrating dilemma. Convinced that the only logical explanation is that her new, young co-worker Tammy is sabotaging the displays in an attempt to steal her job, Judy embarks on a course of action that will change her career and life.

Hashtags, hockey and homelessness.


A Social Media revolution has been building momentum on the Internet for the past five years, and it is creating a new sense of community and empowerment amongst those who have embraced it. History has shown that poor and marginalized communities stand to gain the most from leaps forward in the democratization of information, so the excitement was palpable in areas like Vancouver’s maligned Downtown Eastside about the possibilities of Web 2.0 and beyond. With the Winter Olympics less than a year away, billions have been spent in preparations as Vancouver puts on its best face for the world. Against this background the film examines Social Media in action as a group named Fearless City embarks on a campaign to empower and protect its neighbours with cellphones, video-streaming, and the World Wide Web.

Every 5 minutes, 3 million plastic bottles are used in the US alone.


Plastic Bottles is a profile of the work of Seattle-based photographer Chris Jordan , who uses his work to try and help us all get a better grip on the often incomprehensible and overwhelming statistics which describe our modern consumer culture.  With his painstakingly created, large scale photomontages Jordan makes visible what a field of 3 million plastic bottles - a number which reflects how many are used every 5 minutes in the US alone - and helps us find a new way to make sense of these numbers.  In engaging people in a discussion about the role we all play in contributing to these statistics, Jordan challenges us to reflect on the idea of personal responsibility in society.

Never underestimate the power of a beer.


Every second Saturday of July for the past twenty-eight years the tiny California community of Laguna Niguel sees itself become the host of an improbably recurring event which is popularly known as "Moon Amtrak".  Centered around the Mugs Away Saloon and located in an industrial area of town, the festival is inspired by JT Smith's drunken offer to buy a beer for anyone who would come out with him and moon the Amtrak passenger trains which were whizzing by on some nearby tracks.  While evolving over the yearsinto a sort of Mardi Gras for the Southern California biker community, the festival has remained curiously friendly to anyone who wants to pull their pants down, and welcomes everyone from grandmothers to newlyweds.  Without any central coordination the party now gets upwards of 3,000 people a year, some of whom begin to park their RVs along the route several days early to get the best spots.  With a generally well-behaved crowd, the biggest threat to Moon Amtrak's continued survival may actually be something as banal as condo construction, as the surrounding gated communities look to gobble up more real estate.
