Nik Fackler’s new film explores a paradise lost

Filmmaker, musician and psychedelia aficionado Nik Fackler is a millennial seeker. It's no surprise then he followed his well-crafted made-in-Omaha feature debut Lovely, Still (2008) with documentaries exploring cultures half-a-world away.

Black on Black

Comedian Lewis Black has made a living off of being extremely angry, irritated and voluble, to say the least. Considering his on-stage persona, it’s incredible how congenial of a man Black actually is.
