The Ross McElwee Collection
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Ross McElwee


This collection of films from the infamous documentarian Ross McElwee offers a great overview of his work. SHERMAN'S MARCH: When Ross McElwee is dumped by his girlfriend, the documentarian decides to retrace General Sherman's Civil War march on Atlanta, hilariously exploring romance and the mystique of southern women along the way. TIME INDEFINITE: This is a poignant, real-life look at what happens when Ross McElwee announces to his dyed-in-the-wool southern family that he's engaged to a Jewish woman from Boston. SIX O'CLOCK NEWS: Documentarian Ross McElwee lends his low-key, inquisitive style to this homemade personal journal, in which he interviews the subjects of soundbite-laden human interest stories on the network news, listening to their tragic stories and considering how the media has affected our concept of personal loss. BRIGHT LEAVES: Ross McElwee directs this autobiographical documentary about his family's roots in the tobacco business in North Carolina. Taking a sabbatical from his home in Boston, he offers a culturally interesting history of the south as viewed through the biggest, wealthiest tobacco enterprises. CHARLEEN & BACKYARD: These two films deal with humorous family observations in the genteel south from acclaimed independent filmmaker Ross McElwee.
