2PM A Purple Tree is Fine with Me "Children's art, however modest, plays an essential role in the creative process." A pictorial calendar of music and art is family entertainment, inspiring the young and "cracking up" the most serious. Sony film festival winner. Q&A's with producer Shelli Lipton.

2:45 Boomer Boots Up Without a word but with movement, humor and physical gusto, a whimsical character dances through an odd, new world in post industrial Holland, where water, land and sky fuse with sculpture amid the industrial, man-made environment.
