A man falls from the sky into a deserted field with nothing but a lamb in a suitcase and an engagement ring in his pocket. Disorientated, he embarks on a city-wide journey towards his arranged marriage with a woman he has never met.

The Stones of the Quarries
'The Stones of the Quarries' is a short documentary connecting historians, nature preservers, and quarry workers to the world of granite quarrying in northern Massachusetts.

Maybe even in your own town.

Antonio Norales: Garifuna Guardian
In Antonio Norales: Garifuna Guardian, Walker Simon seeks to introduce in a colourful manner the culture and history of the Garifunas, a little-known ethnic group which stems from the intermingling of Africans, said to have survived the shipwrecks of slave ships, and the native Caribbean Arawak Indians. Through the lively images of a dance, Simon delves into their long resistance against domination by British colonisers on the island of St. Vincent in the late 18th Century. The film's main character is representative of the Garifunas' campaign to preserve their culture, including their own language, as the diaspora extends into the United States.
