    Film by Michael Dorsey (Documentary) Cinematographer, Camera and Electrical Department Lost Airmen of Buchenwald is a feature-documentary chronicling the little-known story of Allied airmen imprisoned at the Buchenwald Concentration Camp in the final months of World War II. In the summer of 1944, 168 airmen from the US, England, Canada, Australia and New Zealand were sent by the German Gestapo from a prison in Paris to the infamous Koncentration Lager Buchenwald in Germany. Labeled "terrorists" by the Gestapo, they were sent there to be executed. A controversial moment in history that many western countries refused to admit ever happened, Lost Airmen of Buchenwald tells this harrowing story through interviews with seven surviving members of the group. The film follows them from their days hiding with the French Resistance to the darkest days of the Holocaust, as they struggled to survive inside Germany's most notorious camps as the country collapsed under the weight of the advancing Russian and Allied armies.

    High and Dry (2005)
    Film by Michael Toubassi (Documentary and Music) Camera and Electrical Department HIGH AND DRY is a documentary profiling the history of Tucson, Arizona's eclectic music scene.

The city has also spawned more popular acts including Calexico, the Supersuckers and Machines of Loving Grace. Some of these bands reached the big time but self-destructed under the pressure of a music career they just weren't ready for, while others still make a successful living from their music, without the support of a major label or the mainstream music industry. HIGH AND DRY tells these musicians' stories, while giving insight into the choices they made along the way - where the desert meets rock 'n' roll. Drawing upon rare archival material, as well as live performances and exclusive interviews with band members, the film provides a ... Written by Upstairs Film
