5 Broken Cameras (Episode #2608H)

KQED World: Sat, Aug 31, 2013 -- 3:30 PM

This film is a deeply personal first-hand account of life and nonviolent resistance in Bil'in, a West Bank village where Israel is building a security fence. Palestinian Emad Burnat, who bought his first camera in 2005 to record the birth of his youngest son, shot the film and Israeli filmmaker Guy Davidi co-directed. The filmmakers follow one family's evolution over five years, witnessing a child's growth from a newborn baby into a young boy who observes the world unfolding around him.

The Law In These Parts (Episode #2607H)

KQED World: Sat, Aug 31, 2013 -- 2:00 PM

Israeli filmmaker Ra'anan Alexandrowicz examines the system of military administration used by Israel since the Six Day War of 1967 -- featuring the system's leading creators. In a series of thoughtful and candid interviews, Israeli judges, prosecutors and legal advisers who helped devise the occupation's legal framework paint a complex picture of the Middle East conflict and the balance among political interests, security and human rights that has come with it.

The City Dark (Episode #2503H)

KQED World: Thu, Aug 15, 2013 -- 6:00 AM

Is darkness becoming extinct? When filmmaker Ian Cheney moves from rural Maine to New York City and discovers streets awash in light and skies devoid of stars, he embarks on a journey to America's brightest and darkest corners, asking astronomers, cancer researchers and ecologists what is lost in the glare of city lights. Blending a humorous, searching narrative with poetic footage of the night sky, "The City Dark" provides a fascinating introduction to the science of the dark and an exploration of our relationship to the stars.

Last Train Home (Episode #2413)

KQED World: Thu, Aug 8, 2013 -- 5:30 AM

Every spring, China's cities are plunged into chaos as 130 million migrant workers journey to their home villages for the Chinese New Year in the world's largest human migration. This film takes viewers on a heart-stopping journey with the Zhangs, a couple who left infant children behind for factory jobs 16 years ago, hoping their wages would lift their children to a better life. They return to a family growing distant and a daughter longing to leave school for unskilled work. As the Zhangs navigate their new world, "Last Train Home" paints a rich, human portrait of China's rush to economic development.

Neurotypical (Episode #2606)

KQED World: Thu, Aug 1, 2013 -- 6:00 AM

"Neurotypical" is an exploration of autism from the point of view of autistic people themselves. Four-year-old Violet, teenaged Nicholas and adult Paula occupy different positions on the autism spectrum, but they are all at pivotal moments in their lives. How they and the people around them work out their perceptual and behavioral differences becomes a remarkable reflection of the "neurotypical" world -- the world of the non-autistic -- revealing inventive adaptations on each side and an emerging critique of both what it means to be normal and what it means to be human.
