    America Reframed [#211] Drivers Wanted This program reveals the impossibly eclectic community inhabiting a taxi garage in Queens, New York. Each day, a million New Yorkers depend on the anonymous faces behind the wheels, the men who tirelessly drive the city that doesn't sleep. The film follows Eric, a new immigrant from China with a fresh start in America. With dreams of his own business, and a wife and two young sons to support, he turns to a simple job - driving a taxicab. But the easy route proves to be a Herculean struggle for Eric, who can neither speak the language of his customers nor navigate the city's 6,174 miles of streets. Along for Eric's ride, we meet classic New York personalities, including the city's oldest taxi driver, the rumored inspiration behind Danny DeVito's Louie DePalma, and a melting pot of immigrants with dreams of making it in America. duration 54:16   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Carhenge: Genius Or Junk? Outside Alliance, Nebraska, a whimsical monument rises from the desolate prairie. Fashioned from 38 spray-painted vintage automobiles stacked and buried upright, the structure known as Carhenge faithfully replicates its British counterpart, Stonehenge. This humorous documentary examines how this quirky monument challenged one community's definition of art, freedom of expression and appropriate land use. It charts sculptor Jim Reinders' efforts to save his creation from being dismantled. In addition, scholars, historians and artists provide insight into how this public art installation continues to beckon bemused visitors to this small Midwestern town each year. duration 26:46   STEREO

    Black Kungfu Experience, The This program introduces kungfu's African-American pioneers, men who challenged convention and overturned preconceived notions while mastering the ancient art.

Their compelling stories illustrate how kungfu began as - and remains - a unique crucible of the black experience. In particular, kungfu's themes of the underdog triumphing against the odds resonated in black communities across the United States. duration 56:44   STEREO TVPG
