Description

Monterey, California hosts an annual event called the "Technology, Entertainment, and Design" Conference, known globally as the TED Conference.  It brings together the world's most brilliant innovaters and visionaries to discuss their ideas on how to make the world a better place through their individual passions and expertise.  Zuniga takes the camera behind the scenes in this fascinating, invite-only event. 

 

Also included are two short films.  The first, by Turk Pipkin, is called "Challenges: An Interview with Rick Smalley from 'Nobelity,'" in which the Nobel prize-winning chemist discusses oil production and alternative energy.  The second is by Paul Whittington and is called "Android 207."  It follows a human-like robot who must cleverly find his way through a dangerous maze, and evokes both humor and sympathy.
