1 - DOCUMENTARY (IMPORT) - GIVING UP THE GHOST; CLOSING TIME AT DOC'S MUSIC L - (Blu) 
MUG-SHOT


Robert Mugge's feature-length music documentary, GIVING UP THE GHOSTS: Closing Time at Doc's Music Hall, explores the twin careers of respected physician and musician Dr. John Peterson and the music and arts venue he owned and helped operate in downtown Muncie, Indiana from 1992 to 2012. The film centers around a final music hall concert by Doc and his house band performing Doc's original songs along with covers of assorted jazz (Spyro Gyra), rock (The Doors, The Animals), soul(The Temptations, The Isley Brothers), and pop (Paul Simon, Lionel Richie, Judy Garland) favorites.In interviews, Doc and others discuss his early success in the music business, his later innovative merging of traditional and alternative medicines, and his purchase and restoration of a downtown Muncie building both to provide an outlet for the work of young artists and musicians and to helpinvigorate Muncie's abandoned downtown. The film also includes discussion of the ghosts many claim to have seen and heard in the building over the years (presumed to be deceased actors whoperformed in the city's multiple theaters during earlier decades) and a ceremony intended to "free" them, now that the venue was shutting down.

MUG-SHOT


'SOUVENIRS OF BUCOVINA: A Romanian Survival Guide' is a two-hour documentary about the region of Bucovina which is located on the northern slopes of the central Eastern Carpathians and adjoining plains; which, at various points over the past two millennia, has been conquered and controlled by the Romans, Goths, Huns, Turks, Austro-Hungarians, Nazis, Soviets, and others; and which, since World War II, has been split between Northern Romania and Southern Ukraine. The filmis divided into six parts: the first examines such enduring treasures of the Bucovina region as its pottery, its native dances, and the Eastern Orthodox monasteries built in the 16th Century by Moldavian princes and decorated with colorful exterior frescoes; the second introduces multiple generations of a unique Bucovinan family; the third explores some of the last remaining synagogues and cemeteries of the once-dominant Jewish population which was largely killed off or deportedduring and after the Second World War; the fourth explores the Rroma (gypsy) population which was enslaved for 500 years and which (like the Jewish population) was transported to death camps during World War II; the fifth examines ongoing Bucovinan and Romanian survival skills and compares life under Communism from the 1940s through the 1980s with life under Capitalism anddemocracy today; and the sixth explores the outbreak of color in Romanian society since the democratic revolution of 1989. Interviewees include individuals already mentioned as well as the Mayor of Radauti, a local historian, an Eastern Orthodox archbishop, a Ukrainian rabbi, a cemetery caretaker, the president of a local Jewish Federation, and a wide variety of musicians performing regional folk music, gypsy brass band music, dance music, klezmer, piano blues, and heavy metal.The film was shot in 2011 during a long visit to Northern Romania with a side trip to Southernbn Ukraine.
