1. Bigfoot: The Lost Coast Tapes

Bigfoot is hiding... but not from us.

Sean Reynolds, an eager Television Host, is on a mission to debunk famed Bigfoot hunter Carl Drybeck, who claims to possess the body of a dead Sasquatch. When the team arrives in Northern California they are immediately thrilled Drybeck's zealous belief in his hoax is going to make for a wildly entertaining episode of campy-paranormal television. However, when Drybeck's hunting partner is mysteriously attacked, the team is left alone and reality begins to set in. The evidence is stacking up, Drybeck's theory may not be a hoax, and the existence of Bigfoot might just be the least of their worries. Shot on location in the region of the world's largest concentration of Bigfoot sightings and based on the real accounts of locals, The Lost Coast Tapes reveals a new truth about America's oldest living legend.

Running Time: 85 minutes; Genres: Suspense Horror Adventure

2. The Island President

Jon Shenk's The Island President tells the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, a man confronting a problem greater than any other world leader has ever faced--the literal survival of his country and everyone in it. After bringing democracy to the Maldives after thirty years of despotic rule, Nasheed is now faced with an even greater challenge: as one of the most low-lying countries in the world, a rise of three feet in sea level would submerge the 1200 islands of the Maldives enough to make them uninhabitable. The Island President captures Nasheed's first year of office, culminating in his trip to the Copenhagen Climate Summit in 2009, where the film provides a rare glimpse of the political horse-trading that goes on at such a top-level global assembly. Nasheed is unusually candid about revealing his strategies--leveraging the Maldives' underdog position as a tiny country, harnessing the power of media, and overcoming deadlocks through an appeal to unity with other developing nations.

When hope fades for a written accord to be signed, Nasheed makes a stirring speech which salvages an agreement. Despite the modest size of his country, Mohamed Nasheed has become one of the leading international voices for urgent action on climate change.
