• Buzz is strong for Turk Pipkin's globe-trotting doc 'Nobelity,' which had a special showing last month in Austin with former Gov. Ann Richards in attendance and singing its merits. Shot on digital video in America, France, England, India and Africa, the film follows local celeb Pipkin as he picks the minds of nine Nobel laureates, including Desmond Tutu, about war, peace, love, the environment and what we need to do to save our beleaguered planet. The film gets its world premiere March 16 at the Paramount Theatre during SXSW and should hit theaters during the Earth Day weekend, April 20-22. Check out the trailer at www.nobelitythemovie.com.
