Presumed Guilty (Episode #2307)

KQED Plus: Mon, Jan 28, 2013 -- 4:30 AM

Imagine being picked up off the street, told you have committed a murder you know nothing about and then finding yourself sentenced to 20 years in jail. In December 2005 this happened to Tono Zuniga in Mexico City and, like thousands of other innocent people, he was wrongfully imprisoned. "Presumed Guilty" is the story of two young lawyers and their struggle to free Zuniga. With no background in film, Roberto Hernandez and Layda Negrete set about recording the injustices they were witnessing, enlisting acclaimed director Geoffrey Smith to tell this dramatic story.

William Kunstler: Disturbing The Universe (Episode #2302)

KQED Plus: Mon, Jan 28, 2013 -- 3:00 AM

This film examines the life of this radical attorney from a surprising angle. William Kunstler's two daughters from his second marriage grew up lionizing a man already famous for his historic civil rights and anti-war cases. Then, in their teens, they began to be disillusioned by a stubborn man who continued representing some of the most reviled defendants in America -- this time accused rapists and terrorists. In this intimate biography, Emily and Sarah Kunstler seek to recover the real story of what made their late father one of the most beloved, and hated, lawyers in America.

Reportero (Episode #2513H)

KQED 9: Mon, Jan 7, 2013 -- 10:00 PM

"Reportero" follows a veteran reporter and his colleagues at Zeta, a Tijuana-based independent newsweekly, as they stubbornly ply their trade in one of the deadliest places in the world for members of the media. In Mexico, more than 40 journalists have been slain or have vanished since December 2006, when President Felipe Calderon came to power and launched a government offensive against the country's powerful drug cartels and organized crime. As the drug war intensifies and the risks to journalists become greater, will the free press be silenced?
