Nothing More (Nada +) – Amazon.com Exclusive

Juan Carlos Cremata Malberti's Nothing More is a remarkable debut feature that explores the repressive, crippling political and social aspects of today's Cuba while turning upside down all our comfortably cliched expectations about the U.S.'s island neighbor.

Carla is a young postal worker who dreams of joining her parents in Miami even as she enlivens her own drab existence by opening and rewriting the very letters she is responsible for processing. Intermittently bursting into song and cleverly mimicking various cinematic styles, the film is hilarious as well as heartbreaking.

"Cuba's Answer to Amelie!" -Miami Herald

"Charming, imaginative!" –Telerama

Nothing More is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Spanish with English subtitles.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Bottle-blonde Cuban pixie Carla (Thais Valdés) has worked at the post office for five years. It isn't a friendly place and she's lonely (her family lives in the US). When she accidentally damages a piece of mail, she recreates the missive in her own words. It's a love letter from a student to a professor and Carla helps bring them together. Then she opens and rewrites other letters, so that their meanings become more clear (sure, it's illegal, but it gives her life purpose). Along the way, she finds love with Christian Bale-lookalike César (Nacho Lugo). Set in Havana, the award-winning Nada+, or Nada Mas ("nothing more"), is shot in eye-catching black and white with dabs of luminous color and touches of stop-motion animation. Though the secondary cast overacts wildly at times, writer/director Juan Carlos Cremata Malberti's feature debut reveals a keen eye and a vivid imagination. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

History Lessons

History Lessons Lowest new price: $13.21
Lowest used price: $7.49
List price: $19.95
Model: 2251377

In her most comprehensive documentary to date, lesbian filmmaking icon Barbara Hammer offers radical sexual politics in a surprise package of humor as she re-traces lesbian history to create an irreverent, compelling and empowering film. Hammer presents an extraordinary array of archival footage -- from popular films to newsreels, sex ed films, stag reels, medical and educational films, antique erotica -- and then playfully manipulates it to openly place lesbians everywhere throughout history.

History Lessons explores lesbian images from the beginning of film until 1969 (The Stonewall uprising). Focusing on these pre-liberation images, the film exposes not only popular lesbian representations and mis-representations in popular culture and entertainment but also the negative images used in the medical, scientific and legal establishments.

In her familiar experimental style, replete with ironic humor, Hammer recontexualizes lesbian images that portrayed lesbian behavior as "illicit" and lesbians as mannish, neurotic, and cold outsiders. She juxtaposes and morphs dramatic vignettes, commercials, and archival footage from narrative, medical, educational and adult entertainment films.

Lesbians turn up in the most unexpected places (and a few expected ones) in History Lessons--as much a collage as it is a movie. Barbara Hammer takes newsreels, stills, health films, and even pornography and whirls them into a cheeky lesbians-are-everywhere cultural soufflé. The piece is not entirely successful; at times it gets tedious and a bit heavy-handed, and one needs to have a high tolerance for the dripping-things-onto-film-stock technique. Still, the spirit is one of subversive fun as Hammer intercuts straight-laced news reports from the '40s with lurid pulp novel covers to suggest that there might be more to these ladies than meets the eye. This film isn't for everyone, but for young women who are interested in a good laugh while they reclaim a bit of their cultural identity, History Lessons may be just the thing. --Ali Davis
