LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, JORDAN ROCK - This film is a glimpse into the world of 20 year old stand-up comedian Jordan Rock. Following in the footsteps of his older brothers Chris and Tony (and Cousin Sherrod) is the ultimate challenge. Can he find his voice and make a name for himself on the New York comedy scene?

THIS TIME IT’S REAL: THE REBIRTH OF PROFESSIONAL ROLLER DERBY by David Block
In Word Association, roller derby can trigger many responses: Pro wrestling on wheels, sexy women, tattoos. However, the sport was never meant to go down that path. Block’s film documents how members of Old School Derby Association Pro are determined to bring back professional roller derby minus the theatrics, which arguably marred the game. Their passion, dedication and great feats of athleticism make David Block’s film breath taking.
