"Secret Lives: Hidden Children and Their Rescuers During WWII"

Combining first-person interviews with children, parents and rescuers with World War II footage, this documentary tells the complex, emotional stories of a group of Jewish children who were saved from the Nazis by non-Jews who risked imprisonment and death. Whether they were hidden for months or years, the experience profoundly changed everyone involved. The film was directed by Aviva Slesin, who was rescued from the Nazis as a small child.

"Orson Welles: The One-Man Band"

A quick chronology of the creative life of multi-talented Orson Welles, from his groundbreaking radio work through his films, including "Citizen Kane," "Touch of Evil" and "The Magnificent Ambersons." But the main focus is on never-before-seen footage of several unfinished projects, such as Welles' versions of "The Merchant of Venice," "Moby Dick" and "Don Quixote." A special treat is several sequences from Welles' final completed, though unedited, film "The Other Side of the Wind" (1970-1976).
