When Elephants Were Young
William Shatner narrates this intimate story of a young man and a young elephant living in Thailand. Wok and his elephant Nong Mai share a life of struggle and street begging in gritty Bangkok. Their tender bond reveals a complex relationship, where wild elephants live among humans. One day the opportunity comes to release Nong Mai to the forest. Can an elephant who has only known a life of captivity survive in the wild? While the lens never strays from its focus of protecting the endangered Asian elephant from exploitation and extinction, this provocative and bittersweet film is a surprising view into the paradoxes of elephants in captivity - and the opportunity for Nong Mai’s survival may be a happy ending that offers hope for all.

Father Joseph
Father Joseph Philippe has survived political coups, the assassination of close friends, and the earthquake of 2010, yet he found a way to lift tens of thousands of people out of the direst poverty. He built - and then rebuilt - the largest micro-finance bank in Haiti, a 700-student K-14 school, an orphanage, a clean water project, a reforestation program, a health clinic, a radio station, and the first rural college in Haiti. It is an extraordinary life of faith and action. Willem Dafoe said: “This inspiring film challenges my sense of my place in the world and what my responsibility is to others.” Reza Aslan said: “Funny, warm, and invigorating, FATHER JOSEPH is one of the most inspiring, life-affirming documentaries I have ever seen.”

Papa
Hoards of quirky, middle-aged men, donning full white beards, sportsmen garb, and Spanish red berets, descend upon Key West for the Ernest “Papa” Hemingway Look-Alike Contest. For the first time since it's history, the final stage of voting resulted in a tie between two long-time contenders Matt Gineo and Denis Golden. Rather than welcoming two new Papas, the judges deliberated and voted on a tiebreaker, awarding Gineo the Papa title and membership into club. Since Golden lost the previous year in the closest vote to date, the other contestants (Wannabes) consider him to be the odds-on favorite to win the following year, seeing him as a symbol of inspiration and determination; while others are jealous of the attention he receives and consider him a threat.

Since: The Bombing of Pan Am Flight 103
Terrorism is one of biggest problems facing humanity today, but the families of the 270 victims of Pan Am Flight 103 have lived with it for decades. Bound together by tragedy when a bomb ripped the New York-bound 747 jumbo jet into pieces over Lockerbie, Scotland, just before Christmas in 1988, the Flight 103 families faced one traumatic injustice after another. From the early days when an unprepared U.S. government left the relatives to fend for themselves against a greedy, once-iconic airline, to the modern era, when the only man convicted of the crime was set free in a backdoor oil deal with Libya, the families refused to go down without a fight, harnessing the power of the media in their war for truth and justice. SINCE: THE BOMBING OF PAN AM FLIGHT 103 is a feature documentary that tells the story of some of these first victims of terrorism, who proved that ordinary people can accomplish extraordinary feats in the wake of politically fueled mass murder.
