Bag It, directed by Suzan Beraza - Americans use 60,000 plastic bags every five minutes-single-use disposable bags that we mindlessly throw away. But where is "away?" Where do the bags and other plastics end up, and at what cost to our environment, marine life and human health? Bag It follows "everyman" Jeb Berrier as he navigates our plastic world. Jeb is not a radical environmentalist, but an average American who decides to take a closer look at our cultural love affair with plastics. Jeb's journey in this documentary film starts with simple questions: Are plastic bags really necessary? What are plastic bags made from? What happens to plastic bags after they are discarded? Jeb looks beyond plastic bags and discovers that virtually everything in modern society-from baby bottles, to sports equipment, to dental sealants, to personal care products-is made with plastic or contains potentially harmful chemical additives used in the plastic-making process. When Jeb's journey takes a personal twist, we see how our crazy-for-plastic world has finally caught up with us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.

“5 more minutes…please?!” is the very first movie of Lipstick Productions. A European all female snowboard movie which outlines Lipstick Productions mission: Let´s not take everything too serious.
7 female riders, 1 van, 15 days, 4,300km, 416 GB of raw material… culminating in one video, divided into four chapters. The film documents the adventure of the trip, portraying the girls, their lifestyle and their passion for longboard, surfing and having fun!
The wind is howling and there is no surf! What better to do than catch up on some history by watching the famous 1959 surf film 'Gidget'. The name Gidget comes from the amalgamation of 'girl' and 'midget' which is quite clever really, as the leading roll is played by petite, bleach blonde, Sandra Dee. The cool thing about this old school film is that Gidget loved to surf, had her own board and motivated girls to have a go.
