    Calling My Children Gail Farrow, a devoted mother and wife, died when she was just 27. She left behind four young sons, Ronald Jr., Frank, Kenny and Benny, and her husband Ronald. David Binder began photographing Gail and her family in 1987, documenting Gail's last year of life and her family's early adjustment to continuing without her. With insight and honesty, his film and photographs explore the pieces Gail left-photographs, letters, guidance and memories... Twenty years after her death, Gail's hopes for her family collide with the reality of their lives. Calling My Children is a testament of a family's life and a mother's love. duration 29:08   STEREO TVG

    Independent Lens [#1415] Detropia Detroit was the birthplace of the middle-class; a great city that came with the guarantee of the American dream. Today, the Motor City is suffering from a bad case of post-industrialism. Hit with the deadly combination of myopic executives, corrupt politicians, severe racial tensions and a lack of innovation, Detroit now stands as a shell of its former self. And according to an increasingly loud chorus in the media, Detroit is "dead." But look a little closer and find that Detroit just may be the ultimate incubator for fresh ideas - a Petri dish of creativity borne out of frustration and unwillingness to give up. With quintessential American pluck and grit, this city just may rise from the ashes thanks to a dynamic cluster of innovators, entrepreneurs and proud, self-proclaimed "hustlers." duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG-L (Secondary audio: none)

  • 7:00 am
    Frontline [#3110] Outlawed In Pakistan When Pakistani teenager Kainat Soomro accused four men of gang rape, the courageous young woman did not put her suffering behind her. For this unforgettable documentary, which premiered at Sundance, filmmakers Habiba Nosheen and Hilke Schellmann spent five years tracing both Kainat's odyssey through Pakistan's broken justice system-and her alleged rapists' quest to clear their names. The result is a powerful and nuanced profile of courage in a society where rape victims and their families are often considered dishonorable and subjected to humiliation, poverty, and mortal danger. duration 56:46   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)
