    ImageMakers [#1303H] The Animation of Imagination THE LOST THING (Australia) - A boy discovers a bizarre looking creature while out collecting bottle caps one day at the beach. Realizing it is lost, he tries to find out where it belongs, but everyone else is too busy or wrapped up in their own lives to care. The boy decides it is up to him to find its home. The surreal animation comes from the mind of children's book writer Shaun Tan. A beautiful allegory exploring how we take for granted the world around us and how we ourselves at times feel like we don't belong.
    FANTASTIC FLYING BOOKS OF MORRIS LESSMORE (US) - Inspired in equal measures by Hurricane Katrina (the filmmakers are based in Louisiana), Buster Keaton, The Wizard of Oz, and a love for books, "Morris Lessmore" is a story of people who devote their lives to books. The film is a poignant, humorous allegory about the curative powers of reading. The film uses a hybrid style of animation that harkens back to silent films and M-G-M Technicolor musicals.

    Hollywood Idols [#114H] Gary Cooper: The Face of a Hero Known for his personification of the Western Hero, it was Montana-born Gary Cooper's horse-riding skills that first brought him bit parts in movies - and he never lost his love of the great American outdoors. Though he rarely played a villain and was an adept comedian, Cooper is best remembered for the strong, silent heroes he portrayed. With his lanky, country-boy looks and shy manner, he created a unique screen presence, though his real life was one of sophisticated elegance. He received three Academy Award nominations and two Academy Awards for his resume of more than 100 films. Cooper's most memorable films include A Farewell to Arms, Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, Meet John Doe, The Pride of the Yankees and High Noon. Daughter Maria Cooper Janis and actors George C. Scott, Charlton Heston, and Patricia Neal are among those appearing in this profile of one of Hollywood's greatest stars. duration 44:59   STEREO TVPG

    Super Bowl Fever
    The kick-off for Super Bowl 50 is this Sunday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. at Levi's Stadium, and the region has been gearing up for the big game. And then we have the red-hot Golden State Warriors: the team earned a trip to the White House this week, where President Obama honored last year's N-B-A champs. Scott Shafer talks sports with long-time Bay Area radio sports host Rick Tittle.

    NFL Players Choir
    God is never too far from the Gridiron -- it's not unusual to hear prayers in the locker room or professional athletes thanking God when they win. Ahead of the big game, some current and former NFL players are in the Bay Area to raise their voices in praise in a Super Bowl Gospel celebration. A few members of the NFL Players Choir stopped by our studios and gave us a sneak peak of their Bay Area performance.

    Guests:
    • Myron Butler, choir director and Grammy award winner
    • Bryan Scott, former linebacker, who played with teams including the Atlanta Falcons and the Buffalo Bills
    • Olrick Johnson, former linebacker with the Patriots, Vikings and New York Jets

    Drones at Work
    In the near future, drones will be delivering our pizzas, inspecting power lines, and tackling dangerous jobs -- or so say Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who are developing new uses for these flying robots. Producer Sheraz Sadiq and reporter Monica Lam visit several start-ups to see what they're developing.

    Zika Virus Detection
    This week the World Health Organization declared the Zika virus an international public health emergency. The virus is carried by mosquitos and has been linked to birth defects. Here in the Bay Area, scientists are working on new technology that may help to quickly detect infections from the Zika virus. Scott Shafer talks with Dr. Charles Chiu, a specialist in infectious diseases at UC San Francisco.

    Roadtrip Nation: Ready to Rise This travel documentary follows three out-of-work youth - Ryan, Summer and Michael - as they travel across the country to interview inspiring individuals who overcame adversity to build fulfilling lives and careers.
    Ryan, a 20-year-old from Patterson, Calif., aspires to uplift his community in some way, and believes the opportunity to travel and meet mentors from similar backgrounds will open him up to a whole new world of possibility. Summer, also 20 and a California native, has been looking for a support system her whole life. Raised in a foster care environment without a defined sense of family to guide her, she knows what it's like to feel alone in the world, and dreams of becoming a crisis counselor to help others who face similar challenges.
    Twenty-four year old Michael, who was raised in a poverty-stricken neighborhood, found himself involved in gang life at the age of 12 to get by. A high-school dropout, Michael resolved to turn his life around after he found himself locked up in a juvenile detention center. Once out, he became involved with the program YouthBuild Schenectady, which gave him the support he needed to awaken his potential. Michael hopes the road trip will give him the wisdom and experiences to further develop his purpose and share his story with others.
    As the roadtrippers embark on their personal journeys for a better way of life, along the way they find hope and inspiration from their interviews with Chris Gardner, author of The Pursuit of Happyness, Father Greg Boule, founder and executive director of the non-profit organization Homeboy Industries, filmmaker Lydia Joyner, and several others.
