When Nahid, an Iranian exile, set out to make a documentary about Farah, the wife of the shah of Iran, she expected to encounter her opposite. As a child, Nahid had lived in poverty, watching Farrah’s wedding as if it were a fairy tale. In this poignant consideration of subjectivity as truth, we learn that people write history. And can also heal it.

‘The Legend of Pancho Barnes’ chronicles the thrilling life and extraordinary times of aviation pioneer Florence Lowe ‘Pancho’ Barnes, one of the most colorful and accomplished women pilots of the earliest 20th Century, and an ill-behaved woman who made history.
Where exactly do babies come from? Mixing animation and interviews, Yu’s subjects recall some of their earliest experiences and misconceptions of sex and babies. This Indian-themed riff on the Kama Sutra provides a fun glimpse into how we think about sex and what we learn along the way.
