1. Project of the Day—What’s up with the beach? Is it scary? Is it dark? Is it cool? The answer to all those questions can sometimes be yes (it can also be no, but that’s not the point). Surf Noir is a film that takes the general awesomeness of the beach, mixes in a creepy plot and some killer surf rock, and creates a film that is a throwback to a cool era, while simultaneously blazing a new trail.

  4. Project of the Day—Would it be fair to call the Heimlich maneuver a classic maneuver? It’s definitely a classic: it saves lives and probably has happened in at least one episode of every sitcom ever (we don’t have stats for that so don’t ask). In fact, it’s so ubiquitous, so engrained in our cultural lexicon, that we don’t often stop and think about its origins. Enter The Maneuver: The Inside Story of Dr. Henry Heimlich, a documentary about the man behind the move.
