Poet Against Prejudice (United States) (Episode #105H)

KQED 9: Mon, Aug 28, 2017 -- 11:30 PM

Moving to a new country was challenging for Faiza Almontaser, a 17-year-old from New York City, who immigrated with her family to the US from Yemen when she was in middle school. She faced vicious bullying because of her Islamic identity and lost close friends to hate crimes. Through it all, her family still embraced their new home, and Faiza found a creative outlet for self-expression. Mentored by the legendary pioneer of direct cinema, Albert Maysles, Faiza's film documents her courageous and inspiring journey from victim to activist.

Displaced But Not Defeated (Colombia) (Episode #104H)

KQED 9: Mon, Aug 21, 2017 -- 11:30 PM

For decades, civil war has raged in Colombia. Violence has displaced millions of people, like 16-year old Maria Ceballos, who fled her home when guerrillas killed her father. Moving from gang-infested settlements to over-crowded rooms, Maria's family finds comfort among fellow displaced families and moments of joy in creative endeavors. Through her lens and mentored by filmmaker Susan Hoenig, Maria puts a human face on displacement.

Home Is Where You Find It (Mozambique) (Episode #101H)

KQED 9: Mon, Aug 7, 2017 -- 11:30 PM

16-year old Alcides Soares, like hundreds of thousands of kids in Mozambique, lost his parents to AIDS. Alcides is living apart from his sister and searching for a little brother he hasn't seen in 10 years. While he found shelter with a neighbor, many of Alcides' friends are living on their own, hoping for a better situation. Mentored by filmmakers Neal Baer and Chris Zalla, Alcides conveys his inspiring story about finding family and how he and his young friends face hardship with dignity and resilience.
