Althea Gibson emerged as a most unlikely queen of the highly segregated tennis world of the 1950s. Her roots as a sharecropper's daughter, her family's migration to Harlem, her mentoring from Sugar Ray Robinson, David Dinkins and others, and her fame that thrust her unwillingly into the glare of the early Civil Rights movement, all bring the story into a much broader realm of African American history, transcending sports

Worms at work: This film is a celebration of the redworm, a slimy creature who is slowly eating away at our tremendous waste problem. Worm composting is gaining ground, especially in Northern California, where excellent examples of the closed circuit wate reduction method can be found in schools, office buildings, and on larger scale farms. A redworm (which is usually seen as nothing more than fish bait) can eat up to half its weight each day in biodegradable waste and, as a result, it produces a nutrient rich soil enhancer with a myriad of uses. Worms at work features worms and the people who feed them in an effort to educate both children and adults, whil reforming popular opinion about the lowly worm

"Lucy Daniels believes that a family secret told to her as a four year-old radically impacted the trajectory of her life, and set in motion a life-long debilitating mental illness. Born into a powerful newspaper-magnate family, from an early age Lucy defined her worth by her ability to write. Despite early success, she was struck with severe anorexia and underwent brutal treatment in mental institutions, only to survive, pen her first best-seller, and ultimately win a Guggenheim Prize in literature - all before the age of 22. The first of its kind, this hybrid documentary weaves together 'relational' recreations, animated dream sequences, constructed worlds and intimate interviews to tell a worthwhile story of survival and creativity, filtered through the eyes of filmmaker and subject"--imdb.com
