Greener Grass: Cuba, Baseball and the United States (Episode #119)

KQED 9: Thu, Sep 27, 2012 -- 11:00 PM

Since 1866, Cubans have lovingly played baseball, a game that represented independence and modernity. Both Cuba and the U.S. embraced the game, but in distinct ways. Set against the backdrop of the choppy history of U.S.-Cuban relations, this program documents how both countries have used baseball as a political tool and how the sport has operated as both bridge and barrier between the two lands.

Discovering Dominga (Episode #115)

KQED World: Sun, Sep 9, 2012 -- 11:00 PM

Chronicles the extraordinary journey of a young Iowa housewife who discovers she is a survivor of one of the most horrific massacres in Guatemalan history, committed in 1982 against Maya Indian villagers who resisted a World Bank-funded dam project. The film follows her emotional odyssey of self-discovery and political awakening as she travels from the cornfields of her adopted Iowa to the Maya highlands of Guatemala in search of her past. As the Iowa immigrant comes to terms with her bi-cultural identity, her story sheds light on a little-known genocide against this hemisphere's largest Indian majority.
