The new feature documentary ALGREN is a journey through the gritty world, brilliant mind, and noble heart of Nelson Algren.

Exploding onto the national scene in 1950 after winning the first-ever National Book Award for The Man with the Golden Arm,
Algren shook up post-war American fiction with his gritty depiction of working class Chicago. Hemingway and Vonnegut sang his praises and Hollywood immortalizing his breakout novel with Frank Sinatra in the lead role. Algren even won a notorious place in both the heart and work of France’s premiere feminist, Simone de Beauvoir (their story of their affair is soon to be a major studio production).

Including never-before-seen archival footage, newly uncovered audio recordings, rarely seen photos, and interviews with Algren’s friends and colleagues – including William Friedkin, Russell Banks, Philip Kaufman, Billy Corgan and John Sayles ALGREN is an intimate, witty and even antagonistic portrait of this fearless, one-of-a-kind artist.
"Enlightening for those who don't know Algren at all and thrilling for those who knew the man or his work and his life."
-Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune

"A riveting, comprehensive depiction of an author that
Ernest Hemingway declared second only to William Faulkner
in the pantheon of U.S. writers."

-Duane Byrge, The Hollywood Reporter

How They Got Over tells the story of how Black gospel quartet music became a primary source of what would be known as rock and roll, and in the process helped to break down racial walls in mid-twentieth century America.

"The essential story of the cross-fertilization between quartet gospel music and rock ‘n roll. Filled with insightful commentary as well as rare, spectacular footage."
-Billy Price, R&B/Soul singer

Opening November 5th

Don McCarthy was 20 years old on D-Day, when his infantry division landed on Omaha Beach. Don and the other veterans who survived D-Day will someday soon have passed into memory and legend. This realization inspires 20-year-old filmmaker Charlotte Juergens to join Don and seven other D-Day vets on a journey to France – a commemorative pilgrimage to Omaha Beach for the 70th anniversary of the invasion.
