Cast: Leni Riefenstahl
This volume of Short -- the DVD-format magazine that collects award-winning short films from around the world -- features six outstanding movies that you're not likely to see at your local multiplex. The titles include True, a comedy that inspired the popular Budweiser "whassup?" commercials; Tar Der Freiheit, a 1935 documentary on the German Army that Leni Riefenstahl made shortly after Triumph of the Will; Why Liberace?, a look at the late showman as both musician and cultural phenomenon; Clown Car, a satiric comedy in which a pair of clowns become stranded in the desert and are forced to fend for themselves; Serpent and the Sandman, a look at the work of poet Ben Porter Lewis; and Sky Above, Heaven Below, a drama about a young girl and her relationship with her sister in China before the revolution. Several of the shorts include alternate commentary tracks from the director, allowing you to hear them discuss the film as you watch, while others also have storyboard features, permitting the viewer to compare the film's pre-production sketches with the final product.
