FADING PORTRAITS: Fading Portraits provides a rare insight into a society where the government plays a pivotal role in artists' lives, controlling the fate of their work, and subsequently their role within society. The predicament that all artists in such societies face is that when the artist's voice is not heard, it as if the artist does not even exist. Iran is one such society, and Maryam Zandi is one such artist. A renowned documentarian and photographer, Zandi is attempting to publish her photos of the 1979 Revolution and is faced with a dilemma: To give in to the Ministry of Culture & Islamic Guidance's demand to omit several photos or to maintain her persistence that historical events cannot be censored.

SMALL TOWN ROBOT: BIG world ideas. Greenbush, Minnesota is about as far away from the “big city” as you can get. One look at the minuscule main street and you might think you’ve got the farming town figured out but take another look. Hundreds of miles from the big funders and large corporations, this town of 719 people have consistently come together, fundraised, and fielded a high school robotics team that goes head-to-head and heart-to-heart with the world. But it’s not just about competing at the global championships. It may well be a good start to changing how the world works.
