The Terror (2018)

In 1848, two real life warships, HMS Terror and HMS Erebus, sent on a Royal Naval expedition to find the treacherous Northwest Passage become trapped in ice near Arctic and face starvation, mutiny, cannibalism and a demonic polar bear.

Director's Cut

Raised in the slums of Toronto during the Depression, Ted Kotcheff learned storytelling on the streets before taking a stagehand job at CBC. Discovering his skills with actors and production, Kotcheff went on to direct some of the greatest films of the 1970s, including The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz, Wake in Fright and North Dallas Forty. Witty and fearless, Director's Cut is not just a memoir, but a close-up on life and craft.

Liberating Hollywood

Liberating Hollywood examines the professional experiences and creative output of women filmmakers during a unique moment in history when the social justice movements that defined the 1960s and 1970s challenged the enduring culture of sexism and racism in the U.S. film industry. This is the first study of women directors within the intersection of second wave feminism and civil rights legislation to investigate the remarkable careers of these filmmakers during one of the most mythologized periods in American film history.
