Kirsten Johnson has been the eyes and mind behind some of the most iconic documentary films ever made. Her work has arguably moved documentary cinema into the public eye in an entirely new way. But more importantly, Johnson reveals through her own eyes the very nature of perception, of what it means to be alive and seeing the world.

For anyone who ever dreamed of glory on the b-ball court. Well, perhaps not glory, but just basic competence, here come the Pistol Shrimps! A moribund women’s intramural basketball league in Los Angeles is the unlikely setting for a Hoosiers-style sports story, but stranger things have happened in the City of Angels. As actress and Shrimps team member Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) explains in an interview with Jimmy Fallon: “We’re a really serious basketball team. We love to ball and we ball hard. No Hatrz allowed!”

Every artist has his great white whale. For Canadian daredevil Ken Carter, it was jumping the St. Lawrence River in a rocket-powered Lincoln Continental.
