Shelley is the executive producer, and Walter the writer, producer and director, of Weaving the Past: Journey of Discovery, a moving story about Walter’s grandfather Emilio Hernandez that discusses not only Mexican-American history, but issues of social justice that are still relevant today.

Also in this hour: Greg Ehrbar on the DVD release of Mr. Selfridge.
