Title: Kill the Rabbits: A Stage Adaptation
Writer: Tiphanie Yanique
Director: David Edgecombe
Producer: V.I. Humanities Council
Abstract: It is the night of Easter Sunday. I’ve already been to chapel and received God on my tongue. I sit in the cell with my lights off. Everyone’s light is off. I wait for the man with the cross to begin his walk. He’s been doing it once a year for the whole 12 years I’ve been in here. Carnival is coming in a few weeks. During Carnival I can hear all the music and try hard to get a glimpse of Xica.

American Reds: The Failed Revolution
Grant details: TD-50460-12
Title: American Reds: The Failed Revolution
Writer: Richard Wormser
Director: Richard Wormser
Producer: Richard Wormser and Bill Jersey
Abstract: "American Reds: the Failed Revolution" is the first comprehensive documentary to examine the Communist Party USA between its rise to become the foremost radical group in America during the Great Depression and its fall during the Cold War. Its influence extended far beyond its numbers because of its opposition to racism, exploitation of workers, fascism and injustice. The program is unique because it draws upon interviews videotaped with members, former members and sympathizers in the 1980s. Television audiences will learn how and why communist ideology fostered such passionate devotion and generated such intense hostility; why communism was at the center of so many national debates and ultimately how this past struggle illuminates the way Americans today perceive fundamental issues such as free speech, national security, ideology, government social programs and civil rights.

Les Voyageurs Sans Trace (Voyagers Without Trace) Script
Grant details: TD-50564-13
Title: Les Voyageurs Sans Trace (Voyagers Without Trace) Script
Writer: Ian McCluskey
Director: Ian McCluskey
Producer: NW Documentary
Abstract: In 1938, three young Parisians arrived in the American West with kayaks, cameras, and beer. They had a bold, even foolhardy plan: be the first to take kayaks down the wild Green and Colorado rivers. They recorded their journey, creating the first adventure film shot in vivid color. But the reels go unseen for 75 years, until filmmaker Ian McCluskey spots a photo of the trio on a roadside marker. His curiosity sends him on a historical treasure hunt, learning to paddle the same waters and searching for clues. What led an explorer, his new bride, and his best friend halfway around the world on the eve of World War II? What secrets do flooded canyons and a weathered journal still hold? Ian traces the trio's wake back to Europe, uncovering unexpected connections to the French Resistance, the advent of the French Riviera, and the possibilities that free- spirited risk-taking offers to all.

Production Script, Modernism Inc.
Grant details: TD-250065-16
Title: Production Script, Modernism Inc.
Writer: Jason Cohn
Director: Jason Cohn
Producer: Jason Cohn
Abstract: Modernism, Inc. is a one-hour documentary intended for public television and other outlets that tells the story of Eliot Noyes, the iconic midcentury architect and designer who built the design programs for some of America’s most powerful postwar corporations. The film weaves Noyes’ story with the broader context of corporate America’s fulsome embrace of modernism during the period of postwar economic expansion and culminates in the under-documented backlash against Noyes and his generation of modernists during the countercultural upheaval of the Vietnam era. The life and work of Eliot Noyes in our telling is a vehicle to explore the much larger story of the intersection of postwar business, technology and design, a story that continues to resonate in the contemporary context.
