Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story

MA15+ | NFT Documentary

“A thoroughly engaging, eye-opening showbiz doc.” - The Hollywood Reporter

Truth is stranger than fiction in the extraordinary story of Hedy Lamarr, the Hollywood screen siren who invented 1940s wireless technology.

Known for her striking looks and electric onscreen persona, Lamarr’s legion of fans never knew she possessed such a beautiful mind. An Austrian Jewish émigré who acted by day and drew mechanical and electronic inventions by night, Lamarr came up with a ‘secret communication system’ to help the Allies to beat the Nazis. Weaving in Lamarr’s own voice from archival recordings, this absorbing documentary reveals how Lamarr gave her patent to the Navy, received no credit for her contributions, and wound up impoverished in her latter years.

Executive produced by Susan Sarandon and narrated by Diane Kruger, Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story is a film for lovers of history, Hollywood and science.

Premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.

Bowling For Columbine

M Documentary

Why do 11,000 people die in America each year at the hands of gun violence? Talking heads yelling from every TV camera blame everything from Satan to video games. But are we that much different from many other countries? What sets us apart? How have we become both the master and victim of such enormous amounts of violence? This is not a film about gun control. It is a film about the fearful heart and soul of the United States, and the 280 million Americans lucky enough to have the right to a constitutionally protected Uzi. From a look at the Columbine High School security camera tapes to the home of Oscar-winning NRA President Charlton Heston, from a young man who makes homemade napalm with The Anarchist's Cookbook to the murder of a six-year-old girl by another six-year-old, Bowling for Columbine is a journey through America, through our past, hoping to discover why our pursuit of happiness is so riddled with violence.
