- Most dangerous man in America Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers /
- "In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg, a high-level Pentagon official and Vietnam War strategist, concludes that the war is based on decades of lies and leaks 7,000 pages of top secret documents to the New York Times, making headlines around the world. [The film tells how] one man's profound change of heart created a landmark struggle involving America's newspapers, president and Supreme Court -- a political thriller whose events led directly to Watergate, Nixon's resignation and the end of the Vietnam War." -- www.newday.com

- Soul of justice Thelton Henderson's American journey /
- "Few judges provoke the ire of conservatives more than Thelton Henderson, Senior Judge of the Federal District Court of Northern California. His career in many ways parallels the larger historic arc of the Civil Rights movement and the changing vision of government -- from Jim Crow laws to Civil Rights victories and back again with recent attacks on affirmative action. Similarly reflected are the changes and conflicts in judicial philosophy during those 40 years. Henderson's decisions on affirmative action, environmental protection and prison reform --and the furors that surrounded them --serve as a prism on these changes and what they mean for American society"--California Newsreel website.
