    Vermeer, Beyond Time Narrated by Steve Martin, VERMEER, BEYOND TIME focuses on both Johannes Vermeer's work and his family life, covering his conversion to Catholicism, his artistic contemporaries, and the short-lived Dutch Golden Age of the 17th century. The film examines his individual paintings and teases out what has come to be known as the Vermeer style - the representation of light, the interplay of color, and the effects of perspective across places and objects. Vermeer's paintings depict a world inhabited by refined and cultivated women, respectful or troublesome servants, charming young people and learned men. His ruthless elimination of objects and other details that serve no purpose results in images that suspend time and leave viewers wanting to know more. The documentary adds much to our understanding and knowledge of the painter, while still allowing for the mystery and allure of his art. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG

    Karamu: 100 Years in the House The word "Karamu" comes from a Swahili word meaning "a place of joyful gatherings." For the past 100 years, the Karamu House in Cleveland, Ohio - the oldest African-American theater in the United States - has lived up to its name, serving as a community center for the arts and maintaining a legacy of innovation and diversity. Narrated by James Pickens, Jr. from ABC television's Grey's Anatomy, KARAMU: 100 YEARS IN THE HOUSE is a 30-minute documentary which tells the story behind this important theater in America's arts and culture history. Karamu House has come to be known as a respected training ground and launching pad for many nationally known actors, playwrights and artists, including poet and playwright Langston Hughes, and author, folklorist and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston. The film shows how the theater's past parallels African-American history over the past 100 years, and even how it directly intersected with the civil rights movement when it sent bus loads of activists to march on Washington. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
