We’re launching new films on our Video on Demand system in New York and Palm Springs. Our friends who make films have shared some with us, and with you — including Winnebago Man, documentaries about the desert, short films and a new series by Levi’s, We Are All Workers. From the comfort of your Ace guest bed, you can watch these moving, complicated and inspiring films about the American work ethic, experience and expression, as well a VBS.TV series of Americana.
To lighten things up a bit, we’ve made available to you Winnebago Man. You probably already know about Jack Rebney, but if you don’t, do yourself a kindess and watch this.
We also partnered with Massify and Killer Films to invite emerging filmmakers to develop screenplays that use Ace Hotel New York as a backdrop. We were astounded  and thrilled with what came back and the winners are featured on Ace Picks.
There are a few documentaries about the desert we think are beautiful, hilarious and interesting, so we put those on our VOD, too. Plagues & Pleasures of the Salton Sea, narrated by John Waters, is about the paradise nobody wants. The Ghost Mountain Experiment follows rugged idealist Marshal South and his hippie family as they face themselves and the world while living off the land.
If you bring your kids, you can get them to sleep before you watch the grownup stuff, with Bunny Ears TV, a hand-picked collection of cartoons from around the world, including some bedtime reels.
You can see all the films on Ace Picks.

Levi’s and VBS.TV recently went on a trip with a group of Navajo cowboys from the Triple B Association  — a bronco and bull riding league catering to the Indian community of the American Southwest. They tailed several of the Association’s toughest and most up-and-coming riders all across New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado to take a peek into their incredible lives — training and competing in rodeos and the lifestyle that goes with it.

We’re showcasing some selected images from the trip, by photographer Brad Bunyea, in our gallery at Ace Hotel New York from November 15 to December 12. Anyone can come see it, and all guests checked in between now and December 12 will get a special Pendleton x Levi’s Ace NYC keycard holder.

You can also see the video on VBS.TV and get a look at a special product line that inspired the trip, from Pendleton for Levi’s.

Jay Carroll did an installation in the lobby at Ace Hotel New York for the Levis x Filson collaboration and the Oregon Fire Lines film on VBS.tv. It’s pretty haunting and beautiful. And the wallets are going like hotcakes — get yours soon. Go check it out at 29th & Broadway — it comes down tomorrow — and see more on Jay’s blog.
