The Williams sisters are unlike any other sports celebrities in America today, and so well-known that their last name need never be mentioned—not even in this documentary’s title. Venus and Serena Williams, tennis stars who endured years of training, triumph and hardship side by side, have worked as a team despite countless opportunities for their blood ties to split them apart. Venus and Serena turns the spotlight on their hardest year, as physical challenges and personal changes reveal the inspiring depth of their commitment to each other.

30 Years Of Vanessa Renwick: An Oregon Department of Kickass Retrospective
Artist in attendance!
There are few living artists as in tune with the rugged spirit of the Pacific Northwest as Vanessa Renwick and her Oregon Department of Kick Ass. Across work in experimental film, documentary and installations, this Chicago transplant has delivered unsparingly rough but sumptuous visions, ranging from travels with her pet half-wolf-half-dog to an operatic rendition of the Trojan power plant's demolition, to Kodak-hour panoramas of the industrial tidal flats of Puget Sound.
