unReal is for those of us who escape. A film that celebrates breaking free from the confines of reality and venturing into a boundless world. This place isn’t remote or hard to find, and yet many never see it. Here, glacial walls transform into mountain bike trails, rain and snow aren't the only elements to fall from the sky and thousand pound mammals become riding partners. Breathtaking visuals conjure feelings of awe and pure joy; feelings that only those of us who venture outside can truly understand. This film is dedicated to you — the dreamers, the rule-breakers, the ones who never grow up, the ones who know the secret — the ones who know the way into the unReal world.

Reveals the events behind Kurt Cobain's death as seen through the eyes of Tom Grant, the private investigator that was hired by Courtney Love in 1994 to track down her missing husband (Kurt Cobain) only days before his deceased body was found at their Seattle home. Cobain's death was ruled a suicide by the police (a reported self-inflicted gunshot wound), but doubts have circulated for twenty years as to the legitimacy of this ruling, especially due to the work of Mr. Grant, a former L.A. County Sheriff's detective, who did his own investigation and determined there was significant empirical and circumstantial evidence to conclude that foul play could very well have occurred. The film develops as a narrative mystery with cinematic re-creations, interviews with key experts and witnesses and the examination of official artifacts from the 1994 case.

More than just a sports documentary, CHAMPS explores the pursuit of the American Dream through boxing and paints a picture of a controversial and unregulated sport in a moment of crisis. Built around the stories of heavyweight legends Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield, and Bernard Hopkins - who open up about their lives and careers as never seen before - CHAMPS weaves their uncensored recollections with classic fight footage and candid interviews with Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, Ron Howard, Spike Lee, Mary J. Blige, and 50 Cent. Boxing has long given kids from America’s roughest neighborhoods the opportunity to escape violence with violence. But in a sport where careers are made and broken in the blink of an eye, and whose athletes are often ill-equipped for the fame and fortune that accompany a title belt, one question remains… What does it take to be a champ?

Korengal picks up where Restrepo left off; the same men, the same valley, the same commanders, but a very different look at the experience of war. Korengal explains how war works, what it feels like and what it does to the young men who fight it. As one soldier cheers when he kills an enemy fighter, another looks into the camera and asks if God will ever forgive him for all of the killing he has done. As one soldier grieves the loss of his friend in combat, another explains why he misses the war now that his deployment has ended, and admits he would go back to the front line in a heartbeat. Every bit as intense and affecting as Restrepo, Korengal goes a step further in bringing the war into people's living rooms back home.

When the Golden State Warriors captured the fourth title in franchise history at the 2015 NBA Finals, it was a thrilling reward for one of the league’s most vocal and loyal fan bases. The Bay Area had waited 40 years since last tasting championship glory but the experience of this exhilarating ride made it all worthwhile. No one could have known that a little more than a year after selecting Stephen Curry with the seventh pick of the 2009 NBA Draft, the fortunes of the franchise were to be forever altered when the team was acquired by new owners, Joe Lacob and Peter Guber. Infused with optimism and a change of culture, the front office methodically went about the business of building a championship caliber club. Retooling the roster by adding key pieces like Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, Draymond Green, Andrew Bogut and Andre Iguodala helped to create an explosive offense capable of generating a crowd pleasing brand of ball.
Upon the hiring of Head Coach Steve Kerr and his championship pedigree, all of the pieces were finally in place. His blending of the offensive weaponry with their equally impressive defense launched the Warriors on a history making run. Led by the NBA’s Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry, Golden State raced to a franchise record 67 victories in the regular season and one of the most dominant campaigns that the league has ever witnessed. Now you can re-live the Golden State Warriors championship run from the first day of training camp through the scintillating six games of the 2015 NBA Finals. Go behind the scenes with exclusive access and go back in time with rare historical footage. Hear firsthand accounts from those who made it all happen.

I Dream of Wires is a new documentary about the rise, fall and rebirth of the machine that shaped electronic music: the modular synthesizer. Exploring the synthesizer’s history, the film reveals how innovators like Robert Moog helped build the foundation for the machine. It shows how cheap foreign imports destroyed the synthesizer’s reputation. And it tracks the phenomenal resurgence of high end modular synthesizers being used today by a new generation of musicians, many of them at the forefront of EDM – the electronic dance music genre. Inventors, musicians and enthusiasts talk about their all-consuming passion for the modular synthesizer. Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), Gary Numan, Morton Subotnick, Carl Craig and John Foxx show off their systems and give insight into why they are inspired to use this volatile but rewarding technology. A new generation of dance and electronic artists including Clark, James Holden and Factory Floor reveal why they’ve embraced the sound and physicality of modular synthesizers. Innovative companies like Modcan and Doepfer, driven by a desire to revive modular synthesizers, discuss how they planted the seeds that have now grown into a major cottage industry. What started out as a “vintage-revival scene” has grown into an underground phenomenon with modular obsessives craving ever more wild and innovative sounds and interfaces. Today, the modular synthesizer is no longer an esoteric curiosity or even a mere musical instrument – it is an essential tool for radical new sounds and a bona-fide subculture.
