Finding a sense of place and purpose in four stories: a young girl seeks solace and safety in her favorite hiding place; a family of native descent returns to the land of their forefathers to learn about the past and connect with the present; a whimsical artist who has worked for 35 years creating a visual feast of one of his favorite places; a silent film star tours the world he knows; and a lifelong Chicagoan sees his town in a whole new way thanks to a theatre group from the other side of the world.

Through The Past (Episode #101)

KQED World: Fri, Jan 23, 2015 -- 2:00 AM

Wherever we go, the past is never far behind. We explore four stories that connect us to times gone by. A family business that started a major fast food innovation, a man trying to keep a legacy alive, a muralist who keeps the iconic images of yesteryear around for generations to come and the fragility of life is examined through the memories we keep, and the ones we forget.
