Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion

The story is about how an ex-police chief got away with murder as his staff ignored obvious clues and tried to find other scapegoats.

Liked the weird soundtrack and the actor who played the charismatic ex-police chief! Nice black comedy!

A Small Act

This is a documentary about how a small act by one person could have a big impact on someone else's life. A Swedish teacher's donations helped to sponsor the secondary school education of a young boy from Kenya. He studied law at the Harvard University, worked at the United Nations and started a fund to give scholarships to more needy children from Kenya.

Liked the intimate exploration of life in both Sweden and Kenya as well as the use of flashbacks and news clips to explain the relationship to the outside world.
