As much an ethnographic study as a feature film, Alamar (To the Sea) finds father Jorge Machado picking up his son Natan from his Italian ex-wife Roberta. A brief introduction explains the idyllic Caribbean romance that produced Natan before Roberta realized she could not abandon her modern urban environment. For Jorge lives in a one-room dwelling perched above the seductively beautiful, turquoise waters of the Mexican coral reef Banco Chinchorro. Jorge and the man he calls father share the dwelling and chores, spending their days spear and line fishing, cooking, and cleaning their small boat. Minimalist would be an understatement.

The documentary American Grindhouse recounts the history of low-budget cinematic fare that exploits the taboo subjects of our culture, especially sex and nudity as well as violence and drugs. From the landmark 1913 Traffic in Souls to the present day incarnations of such fare, producers and directors have profitably cashed in on repressed desires and the allure of the forbidden. With narration by Robert Forster, American Grindhouse proceeds through the 20th century's decades describing the catalysts for cunning filmmakers who discern an audience and provide the products to gratify desire.
