    Daring Journey: from Immigration to Education Narrated by actor Peter Coyote, this documentary details the challenges and risks four individuals - Luis B., Sergio Garcia, Janet Robles and Ruben Robles, Sr. - are willing to take as they cross the border from Mexico to the United States in search of the "American Dream." It shows the human element to the often-debated and polarizing issue of immigration.

    We Are Superman Kansas City has suffered from hyper-segregation for over 60 years. We Are Superman chronicles the story of Troost Avenue, which lies in the heart of KC. Troost draws a geographic line between black and white, rich and poor. A growing movement unites to transform Troost from a dividing line into a gathering place. On the corner of 31st Street and Troost Avenue, a community of people are battling against prejudicial legislation, exploitative corporations, and a stereotype that has stigmatized the urban core since the suburban revolution. This is the story of their work, their vision, and how they are no longer waiting on a Superman to come save them. duration 56:40   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
