More than 1.5 million children in America are grieving the premature loss of a parent. The EmmyÂ®-nominated documentary One Last Hug follows three heartbreaking but ultimately empowering days at Camp Erin, a bereavement camp that offers children who lost loved ones the support they need to deal with their grief. Founded by baseball great Jamie Moyer in memory of Erin Metcalf, a fan who died of cancer at 17, the free, weekend-long retreat is staffed by grief-support professionals and volunteers. Through group meetings, walks in the woods, and a scavenger hunt for rocks painted with words like â€śAngerâ€ť and â€śConfused,â€ť campers are encouraged to come out of their shells and process their emotions, sharing their feelings with other grieving kids. The weekend culminates in a Luminary Ceremony, where children light floating lanterns in honor of their deceased loved ones, and are given the chance to say a final goodbye. Directed by OscarÂ®-nominated filmmaker Irene Taylor Brodsky, One Last Hug is an inspiring look at the indelible effect that sharing, friendship and emotional support can have on children dealing with extraordinary loss.

â€śIt was really gratifying to see that people were upset. You donâ€™t know what effect the character is going to have.

Thanks to a Japanese scientist’s invention of synthetic blood, vampires have progressed from legendary monsters to fellow citizens overnight. And while humans have been safely removed from the menu, many remain apprehensive about these creatures “coming out of the coffin.” Religious leaders and government officials around the world have chosen their sides, but in the small Louisiana town of Bon Temps, the jury is still out.
Local waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), however, knows how it feels to be an outcast. “Cursed” with the ability to listen in on people’s thoughts, she’s also open-minded about the integration of vampires — particularly when it comes to Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), a handsome 173-year-old living up the road. But at the service of Bill’s less virtuous vampire associates, Sookie is drawn into a series of catastrophes that will put their love to the test.

Filmed in Chattanooga, TN, Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life & Times of Katrina Gilbert is a personal journey that follows a year in the life of Katrina Gilbert, a 30-year-old woman earning just above the minimum wage as a certified nursing assistant. Katrina never expected to be a single mother of three young children, living paycheck to paycheck and barely scraping by. But after leaving her husband Jeremy â€“ whose addiction to painkillers destroyed their marriage and gutted their finances â€“ Katrina finds herself living in a trailer and providing sole support to her children. Overworked, underpaid and uninsured, Katrinaâ€™s saving graces are a budding relationship with a single father facing similar circumstances and the Chambliss Center, a subsidized day-care center that provides affordable daycare. A microcosm of the ordeal faced by some 70 million women and children in the U.S. today, Paycheck to Paycheck is executive produced by Maria Shriver, and is a component of the recently released, multi-platform project, The Shriver Report: A Womanâ€™s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink.
