Christiania - 40 Years of Occupation, directed by Robert Lawson and Richard Jackman

Christiania - 40 Years of Occupation tells the story of a 40-year-old squatter community occupying an abandoned military base in Copenhagen, Denmark. Through interviews with longtime Christiania residents and police and government officials, the film explores consensus democracy, alternative building methods, drug policy and Scandinavian culture in a provocative and often humorous character study of this unique community.

Gray Matters is the story of Eileen Gray, the 20th Century artist whose vision, imagination and sensibility changed the way we live, within our houses and with our furniture. The documentary is a historical, scholarly and cinematic investigation of the life of one of the most significant, but little-known contemporary artists.
