"Who Let the Dogs Out" is a song that has transcended generations, and has led Ben Sisto to dedicate eight years exploring and exposing a story steeped in show business, legal battles, female empowerment, artistic integrity and one very catchy hook. This documentary follows Sisto on his popular live talks across North America that explain the story of "Who Let The Dogs Out" accompanied by a museum of over 250 pieces of ephemera relating to the song and its origins. Sisto’s thesis to his life’s work: the idea that everything is based on prior art, and everything is source material for future art. It’s from this mantra that the dogs were let out…and we are here to explore who did it.

Synopsis: "A Beautiful Mess" is a short documentary detailing the journey of iamchelseaiam completing her first in studio EP. What initially started out as a project about a break up evolved in to a journey of loss, pain and resilience. The films narrative begins and ends in the same setting, a private listening session with all of her closest friends. We then find iamchelseaiam completing the recording of the final song on the project and talking about the process in her element. With the all important EP release show fast approaching, expect the unexpected. "A Beautiful Mess" is more than music, its the human experience.
