DocumentaryThe Cool School is an object lesson in how to build an art scene from scratch and what to avoid in the process. The film focuses on the seminal Ferus Gallery, which groomed the LA art scene from a loose band of idealistic beatniks into a coterie of competitive, often brilliant artists, including Ed Kienholz, Ed Ruscha, Craig Kauffman, Wallace Berman, Ed Moses and Robert Irwin.

What was lost and gained is tied up in a complex web of egos, passions, money, and art. This is how L.A. came of age.

DocumentaryGaming in Color exists for anyone who believes that the pixelated world can be a better place for everyone, no matter who they are.

A lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or otherwise queer gamer has a higher chance of being mistreated in a social game. The power dynamic of a geek society tips against them. Diverse queer themes in story lines and characters are still mostly an anomaly in the mainstream video game industry. However, the gaming community is far more colorful than
