DVD Release Fact Sheet
Synopsis: Recently divorced artist LAURA lives a quiet life in Marin County, spending time preparing for an upcoming show. One day she sees a news story that a man, NATHAN, has been found dead, suspected of having jumped off the roof of his San Francisco apartment building. Something about this bothers her, and we follow her to a local retirement home, where she tells her friend FRANK what happened.
It turns out that Laura, Frank and Nathan all served on the jury for one of San Francisco’s most high profile cases: EVAN BARBER, an infamous serial killer known as the Midnight Murderer. The jury ultimately found Evan guilty and he was executed soon after.
While the authorities are quick to dismiss Nathan’s death as a suicide, Laura is suspicious. When Frank also turns up dead, the coincidence is too great to ignore. She starts looking into Nathan’s last days, and learns that he’d been working on a book about his experiences, and re-examining some of the evidence from the case. Meanwhile Laura starts to get the feeling that someone, or something, is following her. Could she be next?

After a trip to a tailor to get Woody a customfitted suit, the pair heads to the bank to sign off on the loan Vincent needs to fulfill his dreams. But when a problem with the collateral puts the brakes on Vincent’s plans, his lack of legitimate business experience and his criminal record leave him with no good options. Desperate not to lose his only chance at success, Vincent throws back in with his former associates, convinced that one last score will set him free. With Woody in tow, he plunges into the violent world he thought he had escaped, running a drug deal for his exemployer, Baltimore crime boss Mr. Fish (Dennis Haysbert) and Fish’s brother Arthur (Danny Glover).
In the course of one harrowing day, Woody comes face to face with double-crossing thugs and brutal turf wars, and sees his beloved uncle in a tragic and frightening new light. Ultimately, the boy will have to decide whether to follow his flawed hero…or become his own man.

SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: THE ART OF RAP
- Director Ice T’s Critically-Lauded Documentary Debuts on DVD, Digital, and Video on September 18th -
what goes on inside the minds and erupts from the pens of rap legends, when Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap, Ice-T’s critically-acclaimed film, debuts on DVD, Digital, and Video on Demand on September 18th. Directed and hosted by rap legend Ice-T, the release of The Art of Rap on DVD follows the documentary’s premier at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and successful theatrical runs in the United States and England.
A performance documentary about the runaway juggernaut that is hip-hop, Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap features some of the genre’s biggest talents, including Chuck D, Grandmaster Caz, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Melle Mel, Q-Tip, Redman, Mos Def, Afrika Bambaataa, B Real, Immortal Technique, Ice Cube, MC Lyte, Nas, Dr. Dre, KRS One, Common and Kanye West.
The film has won raves from hip-hop specialists and more mainstream media alike. Allhiphop.com’s Tim Sanchez wrote, “Ice-T has produced one of the finest and most detailed film documentaries about Hip-Hop in existence…a source of inspiration and education for all Hip-Hop fans young and old.” Time Out London’s Tom Huddleston wrote, “On the big screen, the sheer force and energy of these poets is extraordinary. These guys are legends for a reason.”
“Rap is an American art form and it needs respect,” Ice-T said in a recent interview with Hip-Hop Weekly. “I wanted to do a film that makes people totally understand how great it is to me. Rap saved my life. So I called my friends up and asked if they’d be in my movie: ‘I’m not gonna ask you about the money, the cars, the jewelry, the beef. I just wanna ask you about the craft.’ It was a labor of love.”

Especially when you add Tiny Lister, Snoop Dogg, Ben J, and almost the entire Van
Peebles family." – Vibe.com

from more than a car and bling — is hard to argue against. It should resonate with
any parents coping with high school kids, particularly rowdy boys." --USAToday.com

ABOUT MVP FILMZ
MVP Filmz’ founder Mario Van Peebles believes there are three loves in your life:
Love what you do, love who you do it with and love what you say with it. With his
new coming of age film, WE THE PARTY, he gets to do all three. In addition to
directing and acting in features, Van Peebles is passionate about supporting
education and eco- consciousness through media. With his reality show “Mario’s Green
House,” Mario got to team up with his kids and his filmmaker father Melvin Van
Peebles. The show chronicled the Van Peebles family’s often-humorous attempts to
raise their eco- consciousness as they try to go green in Hollywood. “We never got
to the full green, more like Olive green,” jokes Van Peebles.
With Bring Your “A” Game, Van Peebles encourages young brothers to resist the pop
culture of anti-intellectualism and educate themselves beyond conventional
academics. His documentary Fair Game? explores such topics as the prison industrial
complex as a form of modern day slavery, and eco-apartheid.
A graduate of Columbia University with a B.A. in Economics and recipient of an
honorary doctorate from Hofstra University, Van Peebles worked for two years for New
York’s Department of Environmental Protection before moving to Hollywood to act,
write, and direct.
“It’s called ‘show business’ not ‘show arts.’ I needed the business savvy to turn
what I love into a career,” says Van Peebles. After three years of saving and
sleeping on a kitchen floor, Van Peebles got his first break acting in Heartbreak
Ridge opposite Clint Eastwood. He took that money and funded his first short film.
Soon after he was directing episodic TV including his own series for NBC produced by
Stephen J. Cannell called Sonny Spoon. His theatrical directing debut was the urban
gangster hit New Jack City, which became Warner Brothers’ most profitable movie of
1991. Van Peebles followed up with his multi-cultural western, Posse.
Van Peebles then directed and produced Panther, while his father wrote and produced
it. Panther is the story of the Black Panther Party’s rise to power. The film became
a political classic, earning both controversy and awards including the Locarno Film
Festival’s Silver Leopard award.
BAADASSSSS!, Van Peebles’ odyssey about the making of his father’s groundbreaking
film Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song was one of Ebert and Roeper’s 10 best movies
of the year for 2004.
Recently, Van Peebles directed and acted in All Things Fall Apart alongside 50 Cent
and Ray Liotta. He also directed Redemption Road, about two men on a spiritual
journey with Michael Clarke Duncan and Tom Skerritt.
Van Peebles received critical acclaim for his portrayal of political icon Malcolm X
alongside Will Smith in Michael Mann’s Ali. When not doing features, Van Peebles
directs award winning shows like “Damages,” “Lost” and “Boss.”
“Samuel L. Jackson has never been this Terrifying.”

This is Civilization
Debuts on DVD from Athena June 19, 2012
“Illuminating dash through the history of culture” —The Independent
“Entirely riveting” —The Observer
Silver Spring, MD — Following the common threads of inspiration and influence that link diverse art movements over centuries and continents, This Is Civilization, debuts on DVD from Athena on June 19, 2012. Artist and broadcaster Matthew Collings travels from London to Beijing in this sweeping four-part series and contemporary update of the BBC’s landmark 1969 series Civilization, with an expanded focus on non-Western art. The program was shot on location in Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Greece, China, Turkey, Egypt, and the U.S. and aired on the Ovation Channel in March 2009. This is Civilization includes a 12-page viewer’s guide with articles including Muse vs. Master, Living in the Material World, and the Art of War, as well as biographies of featured artists (DVD 2-vol. boxed set, $39.99, (www.athenalearning.com).
Collings traces the currents of emotion, money, and politics that shaped art through the centuries as he walks the halls of London’s Tate Gallery, the temples of ancient Egypt, a munitions-factory-turned-art space in Beijing, and other locales. As Collings shows, intricate patterns on mosques exude the same unifying aesthetic found in Jackson Pollock’s paintings, and kitschy reprints of Mao Zedong echo the devotional zeal of medieval church mosaics. At the same time, cultural forces as diverse as fascism and Christianity leave their own distinctive stamps on the art of their eras.
Broadcaster, critic, and author Matthew Collings has written extensively on contemporary art and hosted television programs including This Is Modern Art and Beautiful Equations. A classically trained artist, he collaborates with his wife, Emma Biggs, on abstract paintings.
