Girl Model (Episode #2514H)

KQED 9: Sun, Mar 24, 2013 -- 10:30 PM

This film strips away the facade of the modeling industry by following two people whose lives intersect because of it. Ashley is a deeply conflicted American model scout, and 13-year-old Nadya, plucked from a remote Siberian village and promised a lucrative career in Japan, is her latest discovery. As the young girl searches for glamour and an escape from poverty, she confronts the harsh realities of a culture that worships youth -- and an industry that makes perpetual childhood a globally traded commodity. "Girl Model" will be accompanied by two StoryCorps animated shorts: "To R.P. Salazar, with Love" and "Sundays at Rocco's."

Patti Smith: Dream of Life (Episode #2214H)

KQED Life: Sat, Mar 23, 2013 -- 10:00 PM

Shot over 11 years by renowned fashion photographer Steven Sebring, this documentary is an intimate portrait of the legendary rocker, poet and artist. Following Smith's personal reflections over a decade, the film explores her many art forms and the friends and poets who inspired her -- William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Bob Dylan, Robert Mapplethorpe and Michael Stipe. She emerges as a crucial, contemporary link between the Beats, punks and today's music. Shot in lush, dark tones, featuring rare performance clips and narrated by the artist herself, "Patti Smith: Dream of Life" is an impressionistic journal of a multi-faceted artist that underscores her unique place in American culture. The film is the winner of the 2008 Sundance Film Festival Excellence in Cinematography Award: Documentary.

The Light In Her Eyes (Episode #2505)

KQED World: Sat, Mar 16, 2013 -- 11:00 PM

Houda al-Habash, a conservative Muslim preacher, founded a Qur'an school for girls in Damascus, Syria, 30 years ago. Every summer, her female students immerse themselves in a rigorous study of Islam. A surprising cultural shift is underway -- women are claiming space within the mosque. Shot right before the uprising in Syria erupted, "The Light in Her Eyes" offers a portrait of a leader who challenges the women of her community to live according to Islam, without giving up their aspirations.
