    Finding Refuge The efforts of one dying woman to preserve her Native culture don't end when she passes, but prompts a renewal in finding pride in that culture. She confronts the violent event over two centuries ago that began the destruction of her people and the shame that colonialism created. duration 25:19   STEREO TVG

    Visa Dream This program tells the touching story of one family's experience gaining entry into the United States. Representatives from the US Consulate demystify the visa process and illuminate the reasons why they approve some applications - and deny others. The film's main characters are Ramon and Aurora Chavez, an elderly couple living in Jalisco, Mexico, who have not seen their children in 16 years. They are a family divided, connected only by photo albums and phone calls.
    The daughters may not visit Mexico because they do not possess the necessary documents; going there would mean forever leaving behind their spouses, children, homes and lives. One daughter tearfully explains the hardships many immigrant families endure as a result of this prolonged separation. Ramon, the patriarch of the family, would rather live in Mexico but he longs to reunite with his family, who live 2500 miles away in Los Angeles. In order to visit, they must secure a tourist visa, an expensive and difficult proposition.
    Previous attempts proved unsuccessful but the Chavezes decide to try again after years of postponement. A camera crew follows them step-by-step through the application process, which begins at the US Consulate two hours away in Guadalajara.

    Global 3000 [#911] Trump and the Future of Israel US support for a two-state solution in the Middle East was once taken for granted. Donald Trump has rejected this doctrine.

    Nature [#3107H] Ireland's Wild River The Shannon is Ireland's greatest geographical landmark and the longest river. It is both a barrier and highway -- a silver ribbon holding back the rugged landscapes of the west from the gentler plains to the east. On its journey south, the Shannon passes through a huge palette of rural landscapes; where on little-known backwaters, Ireland's wild animals and plants still thrive as almost nowhere else. For a year, wildlife cameraman Colin Stafford-Johnson lives on the river -- camping on its banks, exploring its countless tributaries in a traditional canoe, following the river from dawn to dusk through the four seasons, on a quest to film the natural history of the Shannon as it has never been seen or heard or experienced before. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Independent Lens [#1707H] No Mas Bebes (No More Babies) No More Babies investigates the history of Mexican-American women who were coercively sterilized at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center during the late 1960s and 1970s. Many of the mothers spoke no English, and were pushed into tubal ligations in the late stages of labor - often based on little more than the question "More babies?" The program follows a group of mothers, young Chicana lawyers, and a whistle-blowing doctor who stood up to powerful institutions in the name of justice. duration 56:16   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)
