The Untold Story of American Superheroines (March 2013), Kristy Guevara-Flanagan's film tracing the fascinating evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman — going behind the scenes with Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, comic writers and artists, and feminist figures such as Gloria Steinem, Kathleen Hanna, and others, who offer a counterpoint to the male-dominated superhero genre. Broadcasting in Spring of 2013 is Nicole Newnham and Maren Grainger-Monsen's Revolutionary Optimists, which follows Amlan Ganguly, a lawyer-turned-social entrepreneur, as he sows hope in the poorest neighborhoods of Calcutta by empowering children to become leaders in improving health, health, transforming their communities for the better; and Kind Hearted Woman, acclaimed filmmaker David Sutherland's (The Farmer's Wife, Country Boys) portrait of a Native American woman who struggles between saving her family and risking it all to help her Indian community and abused women.
