Walking The Line                (57 min)

Walking the Line offers a harrowing view of the chaos, absurdity, and
senseless deaths along the U.S.-Mexico border through private
citizens who are taking the law into their own hands.  The region,
celebrated for its history of lawlessness, has become the most highly
trafficked areas for immigrants in the world- and one of the most
dangerous.  A shift in border policy forces migrants to cross the
unforgiving desert where thousands die; those who make it face
volatile civilian militias.  Following rancher vigilantes with
semi-automatic weapons, outlaw pastors with four-wheel drives, and
impoverished immigrants with dreams of a better life, the film explores
the uncertain line between what is patriotic, what is moral, and what is
just.  Walking the Line is produced and directed by Jeremy Levine
and Landon van Soest.

Christa Mc Auliffe:
Reach for the Stars                (75 min)

The most complete documentary ever produced on the life of our
nation's first Teacher in Space by first time feature filmmakers Renee
Sotile & Mary Jo Godges who wanted to tell the inspiring story of
Christa McAuliffe.

The story is about a courageous woman, a passionate teacher, and
her lifelong commitment to education, a commitment so great that she
gave her life for the cause.

Christa's story gained the interest of legendary singer/songwriter
Carly Simon who composed an original song for this film and
Academy-Award winner Susan Sarandon who narrates. The audience
will be instantly brought into the world of Christa McAuliffe, as she was
loved and remembered and examines Christa's personal journey as a
fledging astronaut. We discover her resistance to having NASA script
her space-based science lessons from the 'ultimate' classroom.

Christa, in her own words, will describe her own sense of inspiration
and what she hoped to inspire. It will be easy to see how she came to
be so beloved, how deeply her loss was felt across the nation, and
how this deeply personal loss drastically changed the dynamics of her
family.

This 75 minute documentary includes powerful new materials. The
producers worked closely with Christa McAuliffe's mother, Mrs. Grace
Corrigan, and other members of her family - some of whom have
never spoken publicly in connection with Christa's tragic death.

This film weaves a new and more intimate portrait of the public and
private lives of Christa McAuliffe.
