    Watch our MiniMovies in high quality at http://minimovies.submarinechannel.com Crass: There is No Authority but Yourself A filmic portrait of this last Punk stonghold. The anarchist punk band Crass was very different from their contemporaries. The Sex Pistols and The Clash sold their souls to big record labels, whereas Crass stayed true to their anti-corporate ideals. Crass still exists today as a commune just outside of London named 'Dial House'- a safe haven for those individuals of principle who still live by the old punk slogan 'Do it yourself'. Director Alexander Oey (1960) has directed a large number of documentaries, mainly for the Dutch networks VPRO and NPS, such as 'My Life as a Terrorist: The Story of Hans - Joachim Klein' (2005), 'Euro-Islam according to Tariq Ramadan' (2005),'Bijlmer the Rough Guid' (2003) and 'Jeff Wall' (1999). Camera: Alexander Oey Editor: Chris van Oers Sound: Benny Jansen http://minimovies.submarinechannel.com/documentaires/view/crass About Minimovies A Minimovie is an episodic documentary consisting of 8 to 10 episodes.

      http://minimovies.submarinechannel.com/documentaires/view/smallnations Watch our MiniMovies in high quality at http://minimovies.submarinechannel.com Small nations, Big games Basque Pilota Small nations often have big ambitions. For instance they seek for independence, they want preservation of their language or recognition of their unique cultural and national identity. The frustration of not being able to live up to these ambitions is often compensated by very peculiar sports in which the inhabitants can take great pride. The Irish have their hurling, the Inuit have their kneel jumping and mouth pulling, and here in The Netherlands we have the Friezen, a community in the north of the country that speaks a language that is totally not understandable for 'normal' Dutch people and play a sport that called fierljeppen. The goal of fierljepen is to jump over large ponds of water using a large pole. Small nations, Big games is about Pilota, the national sport of the Basques, a people in the north of Spain. The director followed his friend, Henrike Olasolo, from Amsterdam back to Basque country where Henrike was born. His father was a famous Pilota player back in the days, but Henrike, to his embarassment, has never played the game. For Henrike the social and political situation of the Basques (being stigmatized in the media as brutes and underdeveloped people) is symbolised by Pilota: the discussions about the cultural identity of the Basques is like slinging balls against a brick wall. The words bounce back, just like the balls. Director Jan Jaap Kuiper (1976) is a historian who is specialized in the history of the Russian film industry. After he graduated from the University of Groningen he stayed in Russia for some time and directed films in Moscow and Sint Petersburg. Back in The Netherlands Jan Jaap studied at the Amsterdam Film Academy. With his exam film Pyotr, letters from the gulag he won the VPRO Documentary Prize and as reward he got a budget to make this MiniMovie.

        Watch more Profiles on http://profiles.submarinechannel.com Director Tommy Pallotta made a compelling documentary about his friend Stephen Prince, a very engaging storyteller who worked extensively with film icon Martin Scorsese in the 1970s, both as a producer and as an actor (Taxi Driver). Prince was also the subject of Scorsese's lost film American Boy, in which the young Stephen tells fascinating, sometimes totally absurd anecdotes from his rock 'n' roll life. The most memorable scene from Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, in which Travolta injects adrenaline into the heart of Uma Thurman who overdosed, is based on a story that Stephen tells in this documentary. Three decades after Scorsese's film was released, Tommy Pallotta brings us American Prince, where he draws out Steven Prince once more to recount his days since 'American Boy', share why he turned his back on the entertainment industry and to compose the next chapter of his story. Since Submarine Channel helped American Prince to come about and since we distribute the film, we had a nice talk with the Amsterdam-based director Tommy Pallota. We talked to him about how he met Stephen Prince (their first encounter wasn't particularly friendly) and how Pallotta started in the film industry himself, still being a philosophy student in Austin. Here in Austin he met Richard Linklater with whom he work on movies like Slacker, Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly.

          American Prince by Tommy Pallotta http://americanprincemovie.com In 1978, director Martin Scorsese turned the camera on his friend and roommate, Steven Prince, whose life was more fascinating than what any screenwriter could dream up. The compelling documentary that emerged, 'American Boy' was to become Scorsese’s “lost” film. Having never been properly released, it gained cult status among cinefiles over the years through bootleg copies and influenced a whole generation of filmmakers. Quentin Tarantino took one of Prince's stories about injecting adrenaline into the heart of a woman who overdosed and turned it into one of the most memorable scenes in film history. Prince's influence on American cinema not only reaches much further than his small role as the gun salesman in 'Taxi Driver', he has clearly left an indelible mark. Three decades after Scorsese's documentary was released, Tommy Pallotta brings us 'American Prince', where he draws out Steven Prince once more to recount his days since 'American Boy', share why he turned his back on the entertainment industry and to compose the next chapter of his story. 'American Prince' premieres at SXSW on 14 March 2009 and will be distributed online by SubmarineChannel.com for free through video sharing and bittorrent websites such as Mininova.org and the like. See americanprincemovie.com for more details. Director's bio Tommy Pallotta has produced Richard Linklater's 'A Scanner Darkly' and 'Waking Life'. Directed the feature 'The High Road' and music videos for the band Zero 7. He has also produced several short films including 'Snack and Drink', which resides as part of a permanent collection in the New York Museum of Modern Art.

This is exactly what happened to director Rob Smits. At the beginning of Room 2017 we find him in a hotel room in Taipei. He has just returned from a trip to the Yanomami Indians in the deep green of Venezuela. Few men with a camera had spent time with this fierce tribe before him. But money talks, even in the wildest jungle, and on the day of his departure all but one of Smits' tapes were confiscated. Drifting through Taipei, capturing cityscapes that express his disorientation in a way that reminds us of Wenders' documentary Tokyo-Ga, Smits has to ask himself the desperate question: 'How to make a film with no footageω' Room 2017 is not only a highly inventive MiniMovie about creating a visual story from scrap, but also a contemplation on identity in a world where escaping the rat race has become all but impossible. We see the truly nerve-wrecking story of a man trying to regain what he was out to lose in the first place. With Room 2017, Smits turns a hopeless failure into a brilliant film. Director Rob Smits (1965) has directed a large number of documentaries, mainly for the Dutch networks VPRO and NPS, such as Jungle Rudy: The Chronicles of a Family, Best in Beef, Paradise and Observations in Holland//PUNT NL. Besides director, Rob Smits is also a cinematographer, editor and for most of his films he composes the music as well.
