Inclusive arts festival

More than 600 artists from all over the globe are descending on Washington, D.C., June 6-12 for the largest celebration of arts and disability in the world. A mix of dance, music, theater, visual arts, and film, the 2010 International VSA Festival includes headliners such as Mali's Salif Keita, Patti LaBelle, and glass sculptor Dale Chihuly.

Brando broke his jaw

If you have mixed feelings about today's celebrity culture, HBO's "Smash His Camera" about legendary paparazzo Ron Galella offers a fascinating look at hit-and-run photography. Controversial and often vilified, Galella captured some of the most iconic images of the past 50 years. But his tactics got him sued twice by Jacqueline Onassis and slugged by Marlon Brando. Watching the documentary is like getting tips on how to be a sociopath. Airs June 7 at 9 p.m.
