Line of Separation

 

Available Thursday, August 1st

After the fall of the Third Reich, the small town of Tannbach is cruelly divided down the middle in the battle between East and West regimes and the town's inhabitants suffer the consequences. A gripping historical drama exploring the devastating and sobering effects that decades of conflict had on the close-knit German communities after the second world war.


POV | Call Her Ganda

Available Tuesday, July 30

When Jennifer Laude, a Filipina trans woman, is brutally murdered by a U.S. Marine, three women intimately invested in the case—an activist attorney (Virgie Suarez), a transgender journalist (Meredith Talusan) and Jennifer’s mother (Julita “Nanay” Laude)—galvanize a political uprising, pursuing justice and taking on hardened histories of U.S. imperialism.

 

Rivers of Life | The Mississippi

Available Thursday, August 1st

The Mississippi reaches far beyond the Deep South; its fingers stretch into nearly half of the USA. From the frozen north – where coyotes learn to fish in icy water – down through the nation’s agricultural heart and then to the mysterious, steamy southern swamps where alligators still rule. The many faces of the Mississippi unite a nation.

Vicious Season 2

 

Expires Friday, August 23rd

The story of partners Freddie (Ian McKellen) and Stuart (Derek Jacobi), who have lived together in a small central London flat for nearly 50 years. Constantly picking each other apart and holding on to petty slights for decades, Freddie and Stuart are always at each other’s throats, cracking snide remarks aimed at the other’s age, appearance and flaws.
