The problem with asking whether an activity X is fair use is that fair use analysis is very fact driven.   If I were going to give an answer worth relying on I'd want to know as much as possible about the usage, and I'd want to do some homework that I'd have to charge for.
 
The only exception to that is for situations where the a trivial amount of material is used or for situation which are close to some settled caselaw.
 
In this case, the headlines themselves are probably not protected by copyright anyway.

You said:
 
Quote:
This sounds like an educational movie, not for profit and that would fall under fair use.

which sounded to me to be an unqualified "go ahead".  As an attorney dealing with copyright, I am accutely aware that virtually no fair use question ever has a simple "yes" or "no" answer.
 
So rather than having me prove a negative, why don't you provide support for your conclusion -- support beyond merely quoting the statute.
 
Or perhaps you're saying that any "educational" use of any copyrighted work is fair use?
