Monks of Vina   What started out as a story of winemaking, this documentary ended up being a look into the lives of the men who have dedicated themselves to a monastic life. With the challenging wine harvest of 2012 as the backdrop, the film explores the rituals and curiosities of monastic life. Along the way, the monks' faith is tested, especially among the new arrivals who recently relinquished all worldly possessions, and took their vows of poverty, obedience and chastity. Lifting a veil on the spiritual side of winemaking, THE MONKS OF VINA reveals the extreme sacrifice and devotion required in a quest to become closer to God.G

Water from the Wilderness: Hetch Hetchy to Francisco Bay   "Water from the Wilderness: Hetch Hetchy to San Francisco Bay" traces the extraordinary history of San Francisco's water system as well as the engineering and delivery of an urban water system in the era of climate change. Situated on a mostly arid coastal peninsula, the population boom that came with the California Gold Rush underscored San Francisco's need to develop a source of fresh water for the growing city. The 1906 earthquake finally spurred city fathers to create a public water utility. D

Mystery of the Mountain: Hidden In Plain View   Narrated by actor Memo Sauceda, MYSTERY OF THE MOUNTAIN: HIDDEN IN PLAIN VIEW chronicles a most intriguing and remarkable story, and explores the question: what if one of the world's largest pyramids is waiting to be unearthed in Mexico? For centuries, a rugged and venerated hilltop in Mexico has borne witness to the rise and fall of pre-Columbian societies, and to the creation and destruction of temples and pyramids. It is also the focal point of a most unlikely mystery, and a possible sacred structure lost to history. The program investigates one of the few clues that remains today: a 430-year-old map that was carefully redrawn and passed down from generation to generation. D
