    Barefoot College This documentary from producer Bob Gliner examines a unique community based education program in rural India. Yet, while seemingly far removed from the American experience, it offers telling lessons for how the current debate around educational reform might be focused and curriculum transformed in the US. When we think about schools in the US, we generally think of places separated from the larger community, places where students go to learn. Like government schools in India, much of what is taught often seems to have little relationship to the problems students face in their day to day lives.
    In contrast, at Barefoot College, located in the Indian State of Rajasthan, education takes place off campus, in nearby impoverished villages, among all age groups, with a unique interdisciplinary curriculum intimately encompassing rural village life and the issues villagers must grapple with. Filled with stunning visuals, poignant and insightful interviews, this cross cultural documentary offers powerful insights not only in terms of addressing world poverty, but changing possible education outcomes here at home.

    Independent Lens [#1216H] Pushing The Elephant When civil war came to Rose's Congolese village, her harrowing experience included the nighttime arrest of her entire family, the execution of her husband and grim negotiations with guards which lead to her separation from her 5-year-old daughter, Nangabire. More than a decade later, after eventually resettling in Phoenix, AZ, with 9 of her 10 children, she is reunited with Nangabire. Rose emerged from her experience advocating forgiveness and reconciliation, and has become a pillar of strength for her family, community and as we see in this film, her daughter who is integrating into a new life in America. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
