    Secrets of Her Majesty's Secret Service Her Majesty's Secret Service, or MI6 as it is known, is the world's most legendary spy agency, thanks to the James Bond stories. Set up in 1909 as the Secret Service Bureau, the existence of MI6 was not formally acknowledged until 1994 - which goes a long way toward understanding the modus operandi of this government agency. Initially, the bureau was set up to control secret intelligence operations overseas, particularly concentrating on Imperial Germany's activities. With unprecedented access to some of the key players in British espionage, this film lifts the veil on the shadowy world of spying, going back in time and behind the scenes to look at some the world's most calculated and delicately executed operations. duration 55:30   STEREO TVPG

    Snapshot: A Love Story Interrupted By Invasion A true story of a daughter's journey through a landscape of years, memories and realities. Her journey initiated by the question "What do I know about war?" The answers are lying in an album of faded photos of her absent father, who left for Vietnam before she was born. She creates a world in which her father has a leading role. Snapshots from the album projected larger than life on a black wall bring the beautiful and ghostly characters to life. R&B tracks take us back to a high school dance floor in the 1960s in Appalachia where a White girl and Black boy kiss for the first time. The sound of a gunshot brings us back to the rice fields of Vietnam and a soldier's decision to kill or die. Carrying her past and the pain of her father's absence, a moment of dance positions her in the quest to find him. Her growing insights reveal how the forces of history, race and war affected herself and her family, and the torn fragments of her life begin to re-connect. SNAPSHOT honors her father and other Vietnam Veterans who have been lost under the avalanche of history. This play is a daring look at the truth of our past and an inspiring example of the need for us to reconcile our history --- one life at time. SNAPSHOT was nominated for BEST ACTRESS at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, special selection at: Cape Town Festival South Africa and International Women's Festival Tornio Finland and recipient of: Brooklyn Arts Council Individual Artist Grant, and Kentucky Foundation for Women Arts Meets Activism Grant. duration 58:02   TVPG
