I Can Only Be Mary Lane: Born in 1935, Chicago singer Mary Lane is one of the last living legends of American Blues. If only the world knew. At 82, Mary Lane is one of the last legendary Blues musicians that made the Great Migration from America’s south. Although Mary is widely respected in Chicago, she has never gotten the wider recognition she deserves. I Can Only Be Mary Lane follows Mary as she records just her second studio album and first in over 20 years. Her producer thinks it could potentially win her a Grammy if only they can get it done.

Song Of The Open Road: The Story Of The Southern California Youth Chorale: In the 60s and 70s, the Vietnam War and the Cold War raged on and it seemed like the world could come to an end at any time. The teenagers of the day had decided to tune in, turn on and drop out with drugs and the counter culture. K. Gene Simmonds, a high school music teacher, had a hard time trying to make his students care about the rest of the world, preferring to stay snug in their own little corner of the state. But he was determined that he could make a difference in some lives if he could open their minds to the wonders of travel. Gene started the Southern California Youth Chorale in 1965. Lives were enriched, confidences built, friendships and relationships sealed and memories cherished that have lasted a lifetime.

Pretend: In this surreal take on modern existence, two masked protagonists seek love in all its forms. An adaptation of Nat King Cole's "Pretend" (1953) this new duet interpretation features Canadian vocalists Ori Dagan and Alex Pangman.

Sex, Drugs & Bycycles: takes a look at Dutch social democracy and answers the question: is having month-long double paid vacations, no fear of homelessness, and universal healthcare the nightmare we've been warned about?

Imagination: As children, we viewed the world through the lenses of our imaginations. The carpet became lava, the shadows formed monsters, the family minivan was a spaceship. But the older we got, the more reality set in, and soon we forgot the magic our minds could create. We invite you to step back into your childhood and take a look through the lens once again in this stop-motion sensation, "Imagination."
