The film captures with extraordinary immediacy the inner workings of the Berkman family in 1986 Brooklyn. Bernard and his restless wife Joan, an up-and-coming writer, have given up on their marriage. Their two sons, 16-year-old Walt and 12-year-old Frank, are left to grapple with their confusing and conflicted feelings. The experience is a tender, funny and ultimately moving coming-of-age for Walt and a tortuously premature one for Frank. The emotinal tensions and strains that emerge during this difficult perid for the Berkmans are given a remarkably subtle and nuanced portrayal as a family in transition learns to redefine itself. Writer-Direstor Noah Baumbach earned the 2005 Best Dramatic Directing Award at the Sundance Film Festival for his heartfelt film about a family splintered by divorce. Anchored by an uncompromising performance by Jeff Daniels as the family patriach, the film also stars Laura Linney, Jesse Eisenberg, Owen Kline, Anna Paquin and William Baldwin. Produced by Wes Anderson.

To define Tru-Paz is to define what hip hop is. Hip hop today is the epitome of Pop, the style and the music. Hip hop is also the epitome of street expression. Some view this dichotomy as a paradox, Tru-Paz views it as an opportunity. Akim, Boozy, and DJ Unknown are looking to bring up-tempo, energizing music with a conscious message into the ears of the people. Blending the good feelings of club music, with the uplifting vibes of positive messages, Tru-Paz hopes to deliver a universal brand of hip hop. Tru-Paz have always made their music for the people. The group is composed of three core members: Akim, Boozy and DJ Unknown. Akim is the lead MC, delivering sharp and energizing vocals that cut to the heart of any issue that needs to be tackled. His fans have compared him to everyone from Big L to Jay Z. Boozy is the Yang to Akim's Ying. Where Akim is fierce and aggressive, Boozy is cool and smooth. His sultry blend of harmonious singing and soulful rapping gives Tru-Paz a distinct reggae feel that very few groups possess. With his powerful voice and moving verses, Boozy is the perfect compliment to Akim's raw energy. Anyone that has heard Boozy has compared him to such legends as Tupac, and Bob Marley. With two solid vocal forces, DJ Unknown provides the glue that binds Tru-Paz together. With production that ranges from choppy samples over hard drums, to soulful electronic grooves over jazzy rhythmic drum loops. Unknown weaves melodies that both move the listener, as well as compliment Akim and Boozy's flows. As a producer, DJ Unknown has been compared stylistically to DJ Premier and DJ Pete Rock. Together, these three artists represent one goal. Together, they aspire to unite the fragmented hip hop community into one unstoppable force. The Tru-Paz vision is to inspire everyone, from the backpack kids who study hip hop history, to the club kids who bang bass heavy beats in their ride. From the average pop listener, to the most intense music critic, the Tru-Paz aim to smash the boundaries that divide hip hop. To take hip hop to where it was meant to be, to be a universal voice for the positive upliftment of all people, regardless of their differences.

"Meditate and Destroy" is a feature-length documentary that will provide an intimate portrait of Noah Levine, a Buddhist meditation teacher who uses his personal experience and punk rocker sensibilities to teach meditation in juvenile halls, high security prisons, and urban centers around the country. After a self-destructive adolescence of criminal activity and substance abuse, Noah now follows and shows others a path of spirituality and community service. Noah has a familiar counter-culture appearance; his arms are fully tattooed, he has gold teeth, and wears black t-shirts of his favorite bands. It seems a strange juxtaposition, however, to discover he is both a punk rocker and a devout Buddhist. "Meditate and Destroy" will fill a void in the media by exploring how the younger generations in America -- sometimes characterized as apathetic and self-involved-- are finding a positive way to channel rebellion and dissatisfaction. Through the story of Noah Levine, our film will help raise an important discussion on the meaning of spirituality among today's youth, personal identity, the punk rock ethos, and addiction recovery. "Meditate and Destroy" will not take a position that asserts Noah is an "enlightened guru" or somehow "holier than thou". This documentary aims to keep a reflective stance, acknowledging through an objective look at Noah's life that his transformation is ongoing. We won't sidestep the difficult questions for easy answers. Instead, our diverse portrait of Noah will allow viewers to reflect on what makes a former criminal become a peace-loving spiritual practitioner.
