  • 2:00 am
    An American Mosque This documentary follows a group of Muslim farmers in Yuba City, California, as they struggle to build their local mosque only to see it destroyed by arson. In the wake of the fire, questions abound: Who committed the crime? Is the arson an act of hate? How will the community respond and rebuild?
    Despite their loss, the film's central characters are unrelenting in their conviction that all Americans are entitled to a religious sanctuary and the right to practice their faith openly. Witness how they regroup and peacefully respond to this devastating crime, while members of other faiths show their support. As mosque projects come under attack and hate-crimes against Muslims rise across the country, this program offers a cautionary tale showing the human consequence of this intolerance.

  • 2:30 am
    The Committee This program chronicles the actions of the little-known Florida Legislative Investigation Committee (also known as the Johns Committee) that existed between 1956-1965.
    The committee was formed in 1956 in response to the Brown vs. Board of Education Supreme Court decision and amidst wide-spread anti-Communist fears in the country. Its initial targets were civil rights activists and members of the NAACP who were pushing for desegregation in Florida. In 1961, Florida Senator and Committee Chairman Charley Johns shifted the focus from civil rights activists to Communist sympathizers and homosexual teachers and students at state universities. During its existence, the Committee was successful in firing or expelling more than 200 suspected gay and lesbian students and teachers throughout Florida.
    Through archival footage and photos, and interviews with former students Rev. Ruth Jensen-Forbell and Chuck Woods, and retired police officer John Tileston, Jr., the documentary highlights the scare tactics used by the Johns Committee in its attempt to root out homosexuality and Communism on state campuses. Chuck Woods - who had been interrogated by John Tileston, Jr. as a student at the time - reunites with him publicly for the first time in 50 years to discuss what happened during that dark period in the state's history.

    Global Voices [#806] Whose Country? A young Egyptian filmmaker narrates this highly personal account of his interaction with a group of Cairo policemen over a period of 3 years - from right after the outbreak of the Egyptian revolution (in 2011) until the removal of ex-President Morsi by the military (in 2013). As he forms a close relationship with one Cairo cop in particular, the filmmaker recognizes he is entering into something that once was, for him, a previously forbidden circle: He is the son of a criminal investigator, but one whose father never confided in him about his difficult line of work.As the filmmaker gradually gains the policemen's trust, they begin to share with him their stories and first-hand accounts of corruption and abuse. They also express their hopes and fears about the direction the country is headed as the political landscape in the country undergoes turbulent change. Narrated in English by the filmmaker, Whose Country? reveals not only why police injustice was a widely reported cause of the 2011 Revolution but also how the perpetuation of injustice within the security forces itself led to widespread dissatisfaction amongst the lower ranks too. With the policemen blaming "the system" for making them behave they way they do, the filmmaker is forced to confront these Cairo cops - and himself - with questions of morality and guilt. duration 57:12   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
