            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.

              Co-habitating and conversing in hopes of copulating. Wes is a struggling artist whose artistic process is tied up in processed food, and his roommate Dale has a better handle on his Wii than women. In hopes of a hookup, both meet up with the ever-hopeful Amy and her introverted sister June - also roommates. The online-initiated blind date proves an awkward outing for the four until Dale suggests they each share a story from their lives. The exercise is increasingly sardonic, mocking the lengths to which some strangers will go in hopes of becoming intertwined. Life is funniest when it's happening to someone else.

                      He was kidnapped up north as summer was drawing to an end. A whole army went to war just to bring him back. He might still be alive. Yet, the day the war ended, he was still the Kidnapped, the Living Dead, the one who didn't return. "Chronicle of a Kidnap" depicts the laborious and Sisyphus attempt of his wife and his family to bring home he who was forgotten the very day the war ended. It is the story of a young woman, his wife, who wished "to bring him the moon" and who inadvertently became an inane pawn in international diplomatic and political stratagems within a Marathon's media representation of her, who like in "Chronicle of a Death Foretold" is destined to encounter death in the last act.
