Neil Young Journeys: Directed by Jonathan Demme, the film chronicles Young's performance last May at Massey Hall in Toronto, where he was born. (In theaters beginning June 29.)

About Face: The Supermodels, Then and Now: Features interviews with Christie Brinkley, Jerry Hall, Beverly Johnson, Isabella Rossellini and others about how they have dealt with the effects of aging. (Premieres on HBO July 30.)

Searching for Sugar Man: The film introduces us to a soulful musician who was discovered in the late '60s in a Detroit bar and projected to be the finest recording artist of his generation. But when his first album bombed, he faded into obscurity — until now. (Limited theatrical release July 27.)

The Central Park Effect: A lovely film about the astounding variety of wild birds that frequent New York City's Central Park, and the devoted birders who track their migration. (Premieres on HBO this summer.)
