    Soar This documentary explores the inspiring relationship between two sisters - both dancers: Kiera Brinkley, a quadruple amputee who lost her limbs at age two, and Uriah Boyd, who was born a month before her sister contracted pneumococcal sepsis. Featuring beautiful and moving dance sequences, the film celebrates the extraordinary ways that Kiera has learned to adapt - as a dancer, choreographer and medical assistant. It also reveals the deeply loving relationship between the sisters and how Uriah dedicated her life to helping Kiera adjust.
    Over the course of 3.5 years, the doc follows the lives of these two remarkable young women, capturing moments of revelation about themselves, and their frustrations with each other as they mature as individuals, dancers and sisters. Tension arises, though, when Uriah steps away, finally admitting her need to define herself as an individual. After a period of discord, a dance concert reunites them, rekindling their powerful bond. This film offers an intimate look at how dance helps these remarkable sisters to define themselves, together and separately, and the idea of what is possible.

    Healed: Music, Medicine and Life with MS Renowned cornet virtuoso Jim Klages was at the height of his career, having achieved his dream as soloist for the elite "President's Own" U.S. Marine Band in Washington D.C. But when the happily married family man noticed a strange tingling in his arm and nearly dropped his cornet, everything began to change. The diagnosis: multiple sclerosis.

As Jim's health continued to deteriorate, he was faced with his ultimate challenge: finding his way back to the art that had once sustained him. Jim persevered, determined to heal himself through composing and teaching. Through verite and archival footage, interviews, and music recordings, Healed illuminates the ways in which the creative spirit adapts not only to survive, but to thrive. Featuring Wynton Marsalis, "The President's Own" U.S. Marine Band, and research experts from the National Institutes of Health and the University of Southern California.
