“Deciding Vote,” by Jeremy Workman and Robert J. Lyons (U.S.): A now-forgotten New York assemblyman cast the tie-breaking vote that legalized abortion in New York, laying the groundwork for Roe v. Wade, 50 years ago.

Luchina Fisher, director of “Team Dream,” will discuss her documentary at the Short Cuts program.

 “These beautifully crafted stories are perhaps ones that our audiences are not yet familiar with,” Nancy Diamond, the Short Cuts festival producer, said in a publicity release. “Part of our joy in curating this festival is introducing these compelling gems.”  

After the screenings, Luchina Fisher, director of “Team Dream,” will join Diamond for a discussion about her film and other aspects of making documentaries. “Team Dream,” executive produced by Queen Latifah, won Best Documentary at the Tide Film Festival on Martha’s Vineyard. Fisher also teaches documentary filmmaking at Yale University.

Part three of the Short Cuts Film Festival is scheduled Jan. 18, with a slate of international narrative and animated short films.
