Behind The Rainbow (Episode #608)

KQED World: Sun, Nov 24, 2013 -- 11:00 PM

More than a decade after the inauguration of Nelson Mandela, South Africa was slated to become the host of the World Cup in 2010 - a public affirmation of its break with its violent legacy of apartheid. But while the founding Freedom Charter of the African National Congress (ANC) outlined ideals for "a better life for all," harsh inequalities still existed, from xenophobic attacks to corruption scandals and township protests. As a new decade looms, post-apartheid South Africa is at a crucial and dangerous crossroads.
With the 2009 presidential election as a backdrop, this documentary gives a previously untold account of the country's political problems, struggles, and realities. It explores the transition of the ANC from a liberation organization into South Africa's ruling party, through the evolution of the relationship between two of its most prominent veterans, Thabo Mbeki and Jacob Zuma.
Exiled under apartheid, they were once brothers in arms. Under Mandela's administration, they loyally labored to build a non-racial state. Now, they are bitter rivals. Their duel threatens to tear apart the ANC and the country, as the poor desperately seek hope in change and the elite fight for the spoils of victory. The film features key interviews with ANC current and former leaders, including Jacob Zuma, Kgalema Motlanthe, Pallo Jordan, Thabo Mbeki, and Terror Lekota. Examining previous events that the country's political decision-makers have agreed to bury for the sake of democracy, this is a behind-the-scenes look at South Africa's seemingly miraculous transformation.

Welcome to the World (Episode #528)

KQED World: Thu, Nov 21, 2013 -- 2:00 AM

Is it worse to be born poor than to die poor? 130 million babies are born each year, and not one of them decides where they?ll be born or how they'll live. In Cambodia, you're likely to be born to a family living on less than $1/day. In Sierra Leone chances of surviving the first year are half those of the worldwide average Brian Hill takes a worldwide trip to meet the newest generation - In the US Starr's new baby could well be one more of 1.6 million homeless children now living in the streets.

A Village Called Versailles (Episode #613)

KQED World: Wed, Nov 20, 2013 -- 2:00 AM

The incredible story of this little-known, tight-knit community in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. When the storm devastated New Orleans in August 2005, Versailles residents rebuilt their neighborhood faster than any other damaged neighborhood in the city, only to find themselves threatened by a new toxic landfill slated to open just two miles away. Forced out of Vietnam by the war 30 years ago, many residents felt their homes were being taken away from them once again.

Poor Us: The Animated History of Poverty (Episode #525)

KQED World: Mon, Nov 18, 2013 -- 2:00 AM

Do we know what poverty is? The poor may always have been with us, but attitudes towards them have changed. Beginning in the Neolithic Age, Ben Lewis's film takes us through the changing world of poverty. You go to sleep, you dream, you become poor through the ages. And when you awake, what can you say about poverty now? There are still very poor people, to be sure, but the new poverty has more to do with inequality?

Ninos De La Memoria (Episode #605)

KQED World: Mon, Nov 4, 2013 -- 7:00 AM

This documentary tells the story of the search for hundreds of children who disappeared during the Salvadoran Civil War. Many were survivors of massacres carried out by the US-trained Salvadoran army. Taken away from the massacre sites by soldiers, some grew up in orphanages or were adopted abroad, losing their history and identity. This film weaves together 3 separate yet intertwined journeys in the search for family, identity and justice in El Salvador, and asks the larger question: How can a post-war society right the wrongs of the past?
