    Global Voices [#521] Street Ballad: A Jakarta Story Titi Juwariyah, 27, is a street singer in Jakarta, Indonesia. She leads a challenging, conflicted life - from her migration to Jakarta as a lost teen from the Java countryside to her heartfelt quest for identity and acceptance in her adopted city.
    Armed with just a battered guitar, a soulful voice, and a desire for a better life, Titi composes catchy folk tunes to entertain passengers on Jakarta's teeming buses. She dreams of making a career in music but is overwhelmed by the pressures of supporting her troubled family.
    When personal crisis strikes, Titi finds herself alone and on the edge of despair. An emotional journey to see her ailing parents in their remote countryside village provides Titi with important perspective and new determination to turn her life around.
    Back on the streets of Jakarta, Titi embarks on a brave new quest for independence and legitimacy. But in the process of chasing that dream, she stands to lose the very thing that is closest to her heart.

    Xmas Without China Pride and mischief inspire Chinese immigrant Tom Xia to challenge his American neighbors to survive the Christmas season without any Chinese products. Fed up with toy and food recalls, the Jones family down the street eagerly accept the consumer mission-impossible and are drawn into a surprising intercultural exchange with the Xia family. While the Joneses strive to adapt without all their Chinese-made coffee makers, hair dryers and Christmas lights, Tom hopes that in missing the lifestyle that cheap goods afforded them, they'll begin to appreciate the place he's from. But when Tim Jones begins to challenge Tom about why he's so proud of communist China, Tom gets far more than he bargained for. Struggling to explain China and get beyond the stereotypes, Tom realizes he's on a journey of self-discovery, torn between his own competing loyalties to the U.S. and China. "Xmas Without China" is a playful yet poignant exploration, on an intimate level, of America's increasing interdependence with China in a time when, as President Obama says, "the relationship between the United States and China will shape the 21st century." duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    Pride & Joy Filmmaker Joe York spotlights the tradition-bearers of Southern foodways while presenting intimate portraits of men and women who grow, prepare, and serve Southern food and drink. Along the way, he asks and those tradition-bearers answer important questions about American culinary culture. Travelling from Virginia to Texas and ten states in between, he examines themes related to foodways, sense of place, civil rights, gender, family dynamics, and diversity in the modern American South. What do foodways tell us about what it means to be a Southerner? How and why do traditional foodways endure? As America's ethnic and racial make-up shifts, how do regional foodways change? A diverse and eclectic cast of characters populates Pride & Joy. Farmer and novelist Dori Sanders makes mouths water with her luscious peaches. Dairyman Earl Cruze has unlocked the secret of a lasting marriage by way of buttermilk. The Hardy Family argues that boiled green peanuts are a world-class delicacy. These are just three of the farmers, artisans, and cooks whose stories offer insights on the South's complex history and bright future. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG
