          Swaziland is Africa's last absolute monarchy and a nation at a dangerous crossroads. Wedged between South Africa and Mozambique, it is a tiny kingdom of enormous inequality and the world's highest HIV infection rate (43%). The people demand democracy and an end to starvation, while the king lives a life of luxury and rules by decree. With unprecedented access, we meet the royal family: Princess Sikhanyiso, a teenage rapper and eldest child; Queen LaMbikiza, a headstrong outsider and first of 12 wives; and King Mswati III, a distant figure out of touch with his home and country. Filmmaker Michael Skolnik captures the birth of a nation's revolution, and the dawning awareness of a young Swazi princess to the tragic backdrop to her lavish lifestyle.

          "Zoo" is an extraordinary glimpse into the life of a seemingly normal Seattle family man whose secret sexual appetites led to his shocking death. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Robinson Devor ("Woman Chaser," "Police Beat"), the film explores the ensuing media coverage and public outcry that uncovered a secret community of zoophiles, who call themselves "zoos." This expressionistic rendering of how apparently upstanding citizens banded together and videotaped their journey into the most taboo realms of behavior, reveals the enormous gulf between what we appear to be and who we really are.
