Saturday, 2:30 p.m.: “Right Footed,” documentary
Jessica Cox was born without arms as the result of a severe birth defect but beat the odds so many times in myriad ways: an expert martial artist, college graduate and motivational speaker. Cox is also the world’s only armless airplane pilot, a mentor and an advocate for people with disabilities. Directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Nick Spark, “Right Footed” chronicles Cox’s story of overcoming adversity and follows as she becomes a mentor for children with disabilities and their families.
Saturday, 5 p.m.: “Oddball,” feature film
Eccentric chicken farmer Swampy Marsh and his granddaughter, Olivia, attempt to save their seaside town and reunite their family by recruiting their rambunctious dog, Oddball, to guard a colony of endangered fairy penguins from fox attacks.
Saturday, 7:30 p.m.: “One Day in April,” documentary
Fans of Indiana University’s “Little 500” will revel in this documentary, which follows four teams getting ready for the annual bicycle race, telling the story behind the race and about the months or years-long preparation for the event.
