Weston Currie‘s Congress: A Thousand Years of Death is the comprehensive history of a haunted American town. The film begins in prehistory, ends in the distant future, and finds time in the middle to tell the story of Congress’ founding family, the Turners.

Watch a sequence from the film.
The 2008 animated feature film written, directed, produced and animated by Nina Paley (previously we posted Battle of Lanka, one of the musical clips which gave the start to the movie) Sita Sings the Blues is available online with a Creative Common license, that is free as in beer and as in speech.
Have a look at Youtubes new channel where you can watch feature-length films legally. There are for example:
- Many Werner Herzog films such as Fitzcarraldo, Aguirre – The Wrath of God, Woyzeck, Even Dwarfs started small, Little Dieter needs to fly and My Best Friend, the fabulous documentary about Klaus Kinski
- Godfrey Reggios Koyaanisqatsi
- Morgan Spurlocks Super Size Me
- Richard Linklaters Slacker
- Buffalo Bill & The Indians with Paul Newman
- and the Academy Award-nominated Norwegian film Elling

One of the great American movies available in full for US viewers.

Italian director Adamo Paolo Cultraro is shooting his first feature film and is writing down basically every detail about the production process.

Motionographer has the beautiful title sequence for 3:19, feature film directed by Dany Saadia.
