This year's shows are:
Teen Week: "The Ice Wolf"
An Inuit tale, adapted by Johanna H. Kraus
Director: Ray Mannila
From the East Coast Hudson Bay Inuits comes an exciting, authentic tale of a pale-haired child, exiled by her own people because she was "Anatou—the different one." In a village ruled by spirits, shamans, superstition and myth, such a different one has no place. During a famine, her parents disappear in a storm, and Anatou is cast out by the community. She seeks out the forest, into which no Inuit goes, and begs the Wood God to turn her into a wolf.
KidsWeek: "The Revenge of the Space Pandas or Binky Rudich and the Two-Speed Clock"
Written by David Mamet
Director: Irmgard Schopen-Davis
Binky Rudich, his friend Viv, and his almost-human sheep Bob tinker with a two-speed clock with the idea that, as Binky says, "Time on Earth moves at the same speed all the time, but there is another speed, a slower speed, and if we could find it, everything would stand still on Earth and we would spin off." And they do! To Crestview, Fourth World in the Goolagong System, ruled by George Topax and guarded by the Great Space Pandas. The excitement really begins when the Supreme Ruler commands that Bob be brought to him, never again to leave Goolagong, and he steals the two-speed clock just to make sure.
