The multiple means of making art after the end of illusionism led these artists to create performances, sculptures, earthworks, tableaux, furniture, shaped canvases, and more, using unusual materials. They explore the process of making forms and giving meanings to those forms. In this idea art, their focus is as often social and psychological as artistic. Some of their activities enlist engineering and construction techniques, others compose texts or scripts that are central to their art. Some cast the viewer in the role of a spectator, while the others demand active participation. The sources for their concepts and art works are equally diverse; the delicate proportions and balance of Early Renaissance painting, the exploration of the surface of the moon, the structure and inventions of vernacular architects, to name only a few.

14: Dred Scott, Wong Kim Ark and Vanessa Lopez explores the recurring question about who has the right to be an American citizen. 14 examines the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment through compelling personal stories and expertly-told history. Under the Fourteenth Amendment, All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. The story is told through the lives of three ordinary and extraordinary American families who changed history by their courageous challenges to the powerful status quo - Dred and Harriet Scott, Wong Kim Ark and Rosario and Vanessa Lopez. Descendants of Dred and Harriet Scott and those of Wong Kim Ark tell the stories of how their ancestors fought all the way to the Supreme Court and changed American history. Rosario Lopez and her daughter Vanessa are both activists in the immigrant rights youth movement. Born in the United States and a citizen under the 14th Amendment, Vanessa wants to be either an artist, a photographer, a lawyer, or a marine biologist and President of the United States. It is the citizenship of millions of children like Vanessa Lopez, born in the United States to undocumented parents, that is at stake now. Original music by Edna Vazquez, Joaquin Lopez, Salvador Lopez and Edgar Baltazar.

Relive the dazzle, wonder and fun of The 1964 World's Fair, an extraordinary documentary narrated by Judd Hirsch that takes a fresh look at the sights and sounds of this once-in-a-lifetime event. Part futuristic exhibition, part glittery strip mall, the 1964 New York World's Fair was planned amid the optimism of the late 1950s, but the Fair's two-year run often mirrored the chaos of the 1960s. The fair was a brawling, costly and altogether chaotic event, but few of the 52 million people who attended noticed. Acclaimed public television producer Rich Hanley draws on the delightful memories of fairgoers who found a hope for the future, an understanding of other cultures, and a delicious Belgian waffle for just a dollar. So jump in that old station wagon and take a ride back to the 1964 New York World's Fair!

What do the Maya really say about the year 2012? Is the world coming to an end? Is a new golden age about to begin? Doomsday predictions based on misinformation about the Mayan calendar have now spread around the world. 2012: The True Mayan Prophecy is a fascinating, funny and inspiring film created by the PeaceJam Foundation in partnership with leading Mayan Elders, to tell the true story and to dispel the widespread misinformation about the Maya and their prophecies. You will learn from the most famous Mayan in the world, 1992 Nobel Peace Laureate Rigoberta Menchu Tum of Guatemala, what her people have actually predicted for the world in 2012 and beyond. 2012: The True Mayan Prophecy tells you what you don't need to worry about, and what you do need to focus on, as humanity proceeds through this shift in time. Filmed over a period of five years, this 46 minute documentary film takes you deep into the Guatemalan highlands, where a small group of elders have preserved the traditions of the ancient Mayans, passing this deep knowledge down from generation to generation in an unbroken lineage stretching for more than 2,000 years. The film also features interviews with the Dalai Lama of Tibet and Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa, sharing their perspectives on this change in time, and with leading scientists who address the many doomsday scenarios that have created so much fear. The film ends with a look at the five things the Mayan elders believe every one of us should be doing right now in order to help create a better future for all of humanity.
