    2501 Migrants: A Journey Each day, thousands of primarily poor and young Mexicans abandon their native homes in search of jobs and the promise of a brighter economic future. In their wake, they leave behind the hollow footprints of a cultural and domestic abandonment. This documentary explores questions of art and indigenous community in the context of global migration. It chronicles the personal experience of Oaxacan artist Alejandro Santiago. After more than a decade living abroad, Santiago returned to his village, only to find a virtual ghost town of abandoned houses, empty streets and deserted farm fields. Santiago's sense of emptiness inspired him to search for answers through his art. In response, he created "2501 Migrants," a monumental installation art piece comprised of 2501 life-size clay sculptures, with each statue symbolizing a migrant who left his village. duration 55:37   STEREO TVPG

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1705] THE SUPREME COURT AND LEGISLATIVE PRAYER - As the US Supreme Court starts its new term, one of the cases it will hear concerns the constitutionality of prayers opening public government meetings. As Tim O'Brien reports, although chaplains may offer invocations at the opening of legislative sessions, a Federal appeals court has ruled that the prayers that have opened the meetings of the Greece, New York town board violate the law because one type of prayer - in this case, overtly Christian - dominates all others. How the Court rules could determine the boundaries of separation between church and state.
    PAKISTAN POLIO CAMPAIGN - Polio, a scourge that once killed millions around the world has been all but wiped out because of the polio vaccine. But in 3 countries, including Pakistan, it remains endemic.
