        When ARMANDO and CARLOS PENA set off to carry their mother's ashes back to South Texas and reunite with their brothers, the road reveals more than they bargained for. Calavera Highway (Skeleton Highway), traces the odyssey of two brothers as they decipher their family's story-why their mother ROSA was outcast by her own family, and what happened to their father PEDRO, who disappeared during the notorious 1954 U.S. government deportation program, "Operation Wetback," in which over a million Mexican and Mexican Americans were forced across the border. A sweeping story of a family of seven men grappling with the meaning of masculinity, fatherhood, and a legacy of rootless beginnings.

                  Even at a very young age, Elizabeth Wiltsee was different. Behind her wide eyes and gap-toothed smile lay a prodigious intelligence. With an IQ of 200, she taught herself to read by age four and was reading classical Greek by the time she was ten. At Stanford University, English professor John Felstiner discovered in Elizabeth a deep thinker with the soul of a poet, possessing 'an utterly uncommon voice and sensibility.' Decades later parishioners in a small farming community on the central California coast would find her sleeping in the doorway of their church, homeless and apparently mute. Despite her deepening mental illness and erratic behavior she soon became part of their town, spending her mornings shyly attending Mass, her afternoons in the library perfecting her own translations of ancient Chinese poetry. Then she disappeared. This Dust of Words, whose title is taken from Elizabeth's Stanford honors' thesis, is both a meditation on that final journey and the story of an uncommon kindness and compassion: an elegy for a life lived differently - strange, beautiful and haunting, right to the very end.

                      The story of two teen boys, Jordan and Mike, and their quest to start a garage band. They recruit a female bass player, a British drummer and an accidental egg player - all adults - as the boys struggle to balance summer school, nosy parents, and a pair of bumbling two-bit managers who want to control the band. A coming of age family musical with all original songs written and performed by the lead actors, Your Name Here is an inspiration for kids who believe anything is possible. Written by Tamar Halpern
