Documental, Historia: The Waco Siege of 1993 shook American society to its core. Following a 51-day stand-off with the FBI, the Texas compound of the unorthodox Christian group the Branch Davidians was burnt to the ground, killing most of its inhabitants. The official record stated that the Davidians had started the fire themselves to avoid capture. However, with meticulous and exhaustive investigation this ground breaking film claims to reveal a far more sinister truth. The horrific events of April 19th 1993 live long on the American memory: following a 51-day stand-off between the FBI and the Branch Davidians, the compound of the Davidians eventually burnt down, killing 76 of its members, many of them women and children. The FBI and the ATF have repeatedly asserted their probity in the affair, maintaining that the Davidians were a dangerous cult who were stockpiling illegal weapons and abusing children within the compound, and that they themselves had started the fire in an act of mass suicide. Waco: The Rules of Engagement fearlessly challenges the US government, dismantling their narrative with painstaking detail and presenting a far more troubling account of events.

Documental, Historia: Tim's Vermeer, directed by Teller of Penn & Teller fame. Produced by Teller's stage partner Penn Jillette and Farley Ziegler, the film follows Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor, as he attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all of art: How did 17th century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer ('Girl with a Pearl Earring') manage to paint so photo-realistically, 150 years before the invention of photography? Jenison's epic research project ultimately succeeds as he uses 17th century technology -- lenses and mirrors -- to develop a technique that might have been used by Vermeer, supporting a theory as extraordinary as what he discovers. Spanning a decade, Jenison's adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces; on a pilgrimage to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney; and eventually even to Buckingham Palace, to see the Queen's Vermeer.
