Sunday's program includes Tami Gold and Gerardo Renique's Land Rain and Fire: Report From Oaxaca (28 min.), about the October 2006 teachers' strike in Mexico that claimed the life of U.S. documentary maker Brad Will, and Jonathan Culp's Grilled Cheese Sandwich (90 min.), a comedy about high school revolutionaries.
