A film by Armando Bo

Most evenings in Buenos Aires, "Elvis" Gutiérrez is a star - his singing and stage presence bring back to life the King of Rock and Roll in all his glory. By day, though, Gutiérrez slaves away at a dead-end factory job and endures the scorn of his ex-wife; only his young daughter, Lisa Marie, brings any joy outside of his Elvis tribute gigs. Feeling more connected to his stage persona than to the world around him, Gutiérrez retreats from reality until a tragic accident forces him to grapple with his real-world responsibilities.

Armando Bo's feature debut, which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, shows how performing on stage can bestow glamour and grace to the unlikeliest of people. With a jaw-dropping performance by real-life Elvis tribute artist John McInerney, this powerful yet tender film imbues its lead character with depth and dignity, creating a portrait of a broken man who seeks shelter in his dreams and singular talent.

“A knockout, riveting performance! John McInerney is utterly compelling.” - The Hollywood Reporter

“One of the 10 Best Music Films at Sundance! An emotion-laden and intense journey.” - Rolling Stone

Bonus Materials • Short Films: Community Based Monitoring / Eider Studies / History / Location / Sanikiluaq Today • Music Video: SKQ by Arctic Recordz • Behind the Scenes: Building an Igloo / Making Eider Skin Parkas / Making a Seal Skin Kayak

Featuring stunning footage from seven winters in the Arctic, People of a Feather takes us through time into the world of the Inuit in the northern reaches of Canada. Connecting past, present and future is the Inuit's unique relationship with the eider duck. Eider down, the warmest feather in the world, allows both Inuit and bird to survive harsh Arctic winters.

Changing sea ice and ocean currents disrupted by the massive hydroelectric dams powering eastern North America bring modern challenges to these Arctic residents. Inspired by Inuit ingenuity and the amazing properties of the eider feather, the film is a call to action to implement energy solutions that work with nature.

“Artful and meditative...a near mystical mix of time-lapse Arctic landscapes, marine life photography, and interwoven imagery of Inuit life.” - The Georgia Straight

THE OYLER HOUSE: Richard Neutra's Desert Retreat
46 minutes, documentary, color, 2012

A film by Michael Dorsey

Bonus Materials • Richard Oyler and Kelly Lynch Tour The House • Deleted Scenes: Hollywood Movies / Neutra's Curtains / Iwo Jima

In 1959, a government employee named Richard Oyler, living in the tiny desert town of Lone Pine, California, asked world-famous modern architect Richard Neutra to design his modest family home. To Oyler's surprise, Neutra agreed. Thus began an unlikely friendship that led to the design and construction of an iconic mid-century modern masterpiece.

Considered the "father of California Modern Architecture," Time Magazine put Richard Neutra on their cover in 1949, ranking him second only to Frank Lloyd Wright among America's greatest architects. The Oyler House: Richard Neutra’s Desert Retreat explores how Neutra came to befriend this modest, small-town family, and how he was inspired by the site's stunning desert setting, which Neutra compared to the grandness of the mystical Gobi Desert.

Now owned by the actress Kelly Lynch and her writer-producer husband Mitch Glazer, the post & beam-style home and its exotic surroundings shine through beautiful cinematography, and the story comes to life through interviews with Richard Oyler, Kelly Lynch, Neutra's sons, and well-known Los Angeles real estate agent Crosby Doe, who has represented homes by some of history's greatest modern architects.

“A most inspiring, moving, and memorable film, a must for any architecture lover.” - Daniella on Design

“An outstanding piece of filmmaking. One really gets a sense of how this house is a truly spectacular piece of architecture.”
- Canoe Design
