    In Between The Extremes: Jesse Rosen On "The Art of Being Straight"

    Jesse Rosen's directorial debut, "The Art of Being Straight," follows 23-year old Jon (played by Rosen), who has just moved to Los Angeles from New York, ostensibly "taking a break" from his longtime girlfriend.

    A Triumph of Passion: "Herb & Dorothy" Director Megumi Sasaki

    Megumi Sasaki's doc "Herb & Dorothy' tells the story of Herbert Vogel, a postal clerk, and Dorothy Vogel, a librarian, who managed to build one of the most important contemporary art collections in history with very modest means. In the early 1960's, when very little attention was paid to Minimalist and Conceptual Art, Herb and Dorothy Vogel quietly began purchasing the works of unknown artists. Devoting all of Herb's salary to purchase art they liked, and living on Dorothy's paycheck alone, they continued collecting artworks guided by two rules: the piece had to be affordable, and it had to be small enough to fit in their one-bedroom Manhatt...
