    The Cardboard Bernini Olympia Stone's documentary examines the work and life of artist James Grashow as he builds a giant cardboard fountain inspired by the work of the famous baroque sculptor Gian Lorenzo Bernini. James Grashow is an artist who has built-among many other things - giant 15 foot tall fighting men, a city, and an ocean - using paper mache, fabric, chicken wire and cardboard. More recently, he has begun making sculptures entirely out of corrugated cardboard and twist ties. Several years ago, while visiting the home of his art dealer, Allan Stone (who was the filmmaker's father), he stumbled across some of his giant fighting men that had been put outside due to lack of space. They were disintegrating. Although it was deeply painful and shocking for Jimmy to see his work like that, it was also surprisingly beautiful. Jimmy felt that he was seeing the full arc of his artistic enterprise before him - including its end. So, Grashow challenged himself to embrace the "back end" of his process, and decided to build a giant cardboard "fountain" - a Grashow "Bernini."
    From its conception, Jimmy intended this work to be put outside to disintegrate. Work on the fountain began in 2007 and was completed in 2010. Jimmy's "corrugated fountain" premiered indoors on June 11, 2010 at the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke, Virginia, to great acclaim. After shows in New York City and Pittsburgh, Jimmy finally installed the fountain outdoors at the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art in Ridgefield, CT on April 1, 2012. It was there for a total of six weeks, after which time Jimmy took his degraded cardboard masterpiece to the dumpster: "Ashes to ashes, mush to mush."
    The film is an intimate glimpse of an artist at work on what he considers might be his "final epic." We follow Jimmy as he asks what is the point of art and creation? What is the connection between creation and destruction? And, ultimately, what is the point of our lives in the face of our mortality?

    Anders Zorn in the Gilded Age In the gilded age of the 1890s, a boy of modest means - Anders Leonard Zorn (1860-1920) - grew up to be a portrait painter for the Swedish monarchy and American presidents. In this documentary filmed at the ZornMuseet in Mora, Sweden, Anders Zorn's story is told by museum director Johan Cederlund and other Zorn experts from Stockholm's Nationalmuseum, San Francisco's Legion of Honor, and Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.
    Zorn displayed his artistic abilities at an early age. When he was 12 his absent father died leaving a small inheritance that was wisely applied to his education. In 1885 he married Emma Lamm, who was from a cultured Jewish family in Stockholm, and it was through her that Zorn would gain entree to Swedish high society. In his mid-20s, living and working part of the time in England and France, he would return each year for long stays in Sweden. At the age of 29, his portraits and female nudes were such a success at the Exposition Universelle, the 1889 World's Fair held in Paris, that Zorn was appointed Chevalier de l'Order National de la Legion d'Honneur. He was invited to participate in the Columbian Exposition, the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, where he met Isabella Stewart Gardner, the noted Boston art collector; she would became his life-long friend and benefactor. He made numerous trips to the United States over the decade and among his most significant American portraits were those of presidents Grover Cleveland and William Howard Taft. His portraits of the powerful, that also included depictions of European royalty and American captains of industry, represent half of Zorn's oeuvre, with the other half being his paintings of everyday Swedish life. Together they have made him Sweden's premier painter.

    Nature [#3101] Saving Otter 501 On a typical late summer day a baby sea otter washes up on the beach in Monterey, California - hungry, lost, injured. It's a tragic event, but not surprising. California sea otters are struggling. For decades marine biologist Karl Mayer and his small staff have worked unceasingly - one otter at a time - to bring this "keystone" species back from the brink of extinction so it can play its important role in the local marine environment. But the effort has stalled, and no one knows why.
    This is the story of the Monterey Bay Aquarium's 501st attempt to save an orphan otter. From her discovery as a stranded newborn pup crying on the beach through her rehabilitation in secret roof tanks atop the Aquarium, we follow as Otter 501 learns how to dive, hunt, eat, and fend for herself in the wild, where survival is a long shot at best.
