Eyes on The Prize: America's Civil Rights Years 1954-1965
Manufacturer: PBS Brand: Unknown
Eyes on the Prize tells the definitive story of the civil rights era from the point of view of the ordinary men and women whose extraordinary actions launched a movement that changed the fabric of American life, and embodied a struggle whose reverberations continue to be felt today. Winner of numerous awards, Eyes on the Prize is the most critically acclaimed documentary on civil rights in America. One of the essential documentary series from 20th-century television, Eyes on the Prize is an extraordinary, grassroots history of the civil rights movement in 1950s and '60s America. Leaving punditry and debate to others, this six-hour program concerns itself with the individuals who were there, who participated on the front lines, who witnessed and survived to tell about the crusade's tragedies and victories. Starting with a pair of mid-'50s heroic actions in the South that helped galvanize black and white activism against institutional racism (actions that included Rosa Parks's refusal to give up her bus seat to a white passenger in Montgomery, Alabama), the series winds its way through the exponential growth of the movement to the passage of the Voting Rights Act and beyond. The epochal battle between states-rights advocates and federal authorities is well-covered, as are the many sacrifices made and enormous risks taken by Mississippi Freedom Riders and advocates of black voter registration. --Tom Keogh

Janis: Little Girl Blue - Special Director's Edition [Blu-ray]
Manufacturer: FilmRise Brand: FilmRise
Janis Joplin is one of the most revered and iconic of all rock & roll singers, a tragic and misunderstood figure who thrilled millions of listeners and blazed new creative trails before her death in 1970 at age 27. With â€œJanis: Little Girl Blue,â€ Oscar-nominated director Amy J. Berg (â€œDeliver Us from Evil,â€ â€œWest of Memphisâ€) examines Joplinâ€™s story in depth, presenting an intimate, insightful portrait of a complicated, driven, often beleaguered artist. Joplinâ€™s own words tell much of the filmâ€™s story through a series of letters she wrote home over the years, many made public here for the first time (and read by Southern-born indie rock star/actor Chan Marshall, aka Cat Power). Joplin was a powerhouse when she sang, and her recordings have never left the radio or the hearts of rock fans. Bergâ€™s â€œJanis: Little Girl Blueâ€ offers new understanding of a bright, complex woman whose meteoric rise and sudden demise changed music forever and continues to influence female musicians. "Janis: Little Girl Blue," written and directed by Amy J. Berg and produced by Academy Award-winner Alex Gibney (â€œGoing Clear,â€ â€œTaxi to the Dark Sideâ€), features exclusive interviews with musicians Pink, Kris Kristofferson, Melissa Etheridge, Bob Weir, Juliette Lewis, famed TV presenter Dick Cavett, counterculture filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker and the Joplin family. This Special Director's Edition Blu-ray ...
