    Truly CA: Our State, Our Stories [#301] Gumby Dharma Art Clokey's life is fascinating in its own right, but also in how it gently influenced his characters and story lines for 40+ years. His world famous characters - Gumby, Pokey and the rest of the gang - and his animation of Davey and Goliath, seem to echo the spiritual path of their creator/animator. Art's animation work and love of life have influenced millions of TV and film viewers and filmmakers across the world.
    Robina Marchesi's film captures Art's story as he reminisces about his long life and his vast work. In addition, it includes short interviews with some of the contemporary leaders in the animation world who have been touched and influenced by Art's pivotal contribution to the genre. Highlight clips of Art's original, groundbreaking art films, Gumbasia and Mandala, appear, as well as clips of some of Art's favorite Gumby and Davey and Goliath episodes. Also included is new stop motion work (directed/animated by Academy Award Nominee Timothy Hittle), depicting 'interviews' with Gumby and some of the gang on their time with Art Clokey.

    Great Performances [#3813B] Pavarotti: A Voice for the Ages Like Enrico Caruso before him, Luciano Pavarotti extended his presence far beyond the limits of Italian opera. Quickly establishing his trademark rich sound as the greatest male operatic voice of the 20th century, he expanded his reach to stadium concerts and pop collaborations which brought him fame beyond measure. Audiences adored his larger than life personality, childlike charm, generous figure, and happy go lucky style. This program celebrates the 50th anniversary since his career debut in Amsterdam, Vienna, Zurich and finally London where he substituted for the ailing Giuseppe di Stefano as Rodolfo in La Boheme.
    Even today, it is his powerful sound with its natural grace and brilliant color which still leads many to consider him the world's greatest voice. It is Pavarotti who brought opera to the masses and made football fans worldwide fall in love with "Nessun dorma." This program includes that hit and other beloved arias from La Boheme, Rigoletto and Aida; Neapolitan songs in arrangements by Henry Mancini including "Mamma" and "O Sole Mio"; favorite sacred songs like "Ave Maria" and "O Holy Night"; as well as popular duets with Bono, Sting and Eric Clapton.

    Sweet Dillard One of the most successful high school jazz bands in the country is in Broward County, South Florida, just steps away from highway I-95. SWEET DILLARD chronicles the 2013-2014 school year of the Dillard Center for the Arts Jazz Ensemble, and their inspirational bandleader, Christopher Dorsey. The no-nonsense Dorsey lays downs the law from the first beat, calling out his students' tendency to form into cliques of black and white, automatically inhabiting separate sides of the rehearsal room, something he won't tolerate. "You don't have to like each other, but you're gonna respect each other," Dorsey declares. SWEET DILLARD follows several of the jazz students and their families, including: Ulysses, a keyboardist who lost his father at a young age; Chris, who once stole cars and sold drugs before breaking away from his pill-addicted mother; and Kim, an intense perfectionist with Asperger's Syndrome, who manages to shed his inhibitions with the band. At the end of the year, they travel to New York City for the national championships, deter- mined to make their families and South Florida proud. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
