Nostalgia for the Light (Episode #2512H)

KQED Plus: Mon, Oct 29, 2012 -- 11:00 PM

Patricio Guzman's film is a meditation on memory, history and eternity. Chile's remote Atacama Desert, 10,000 feet above sea level, provides clear views of the heavens. But it also holds secrets from the past in its arid soil: human remains, from pre-Columbian mummies to the bones of political prisoners "disappeared" during the Pinochet dictatorship. In this otherworldly place, earthly and celestial quests meld: archaeologists dig for ancient civilizations, women search for their loved ones and astronomers scan the skies for new galaxies.

Give Up Tomorrow (Episode #2510H)

KQED Plus: Thu, Oct 4, 2012 -- 11:00 PM

As a tropical storm beats down on an island in the Philippines, two sisters leave work and never make it home. Paco Larranaga, a 19-year-old student, is sentenced to death for their rape and murder, despite overwhelming evidence of his innocence. "Give Up Tomorrow" exposes shocking corruption within the judicial system of the Philippines and one of the most sensational trials in the country's history. Two grieving mothers, entangled in a case that ends a nation's use of capital punishment but fails to free an innocent man, dedicate more than a decade to executing or saving him.
