    Independent Lens [#1614H] Kumu Hina Over the course of a momentous year, Kumu Hina, a native Hawaiian mahu (transgender) teacher, inspires a tomboyish young girl to claim her place as leader of an all-male hula troupe, as she herself searches for love and a fulfilling romantic relationship with an unpredictable young Tongan man. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Denial: The Dad That Wanted to Save The World Denial falls squarely into a long tradition of documentaries that start by examining one subject before an unexpected twist complicates and enriches the initial investigation. Starting out as an important exploration of energy use and abuse, the film soon takes a sharp turn into the politics of gender identity. The energy debate and transgender issues, two thorny topics that at first glance seem miles apart, are ultimately united by the struggles of one man trying to confront issues that most people would prefer to ignore. duration 54:40   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Washington Week [#5651] Every once in a while, one moment makes Washington pause. Partisanship melts away, if only for that brief moment. This week it was a charity baseball game, an annual tradition that pits Republicans and Democrats against each other for a good-natured competition and America's favorite pastime.
    * Everything changed early Wednesday morning when a gunman opened fire on the Republican team practicing on a suburban field. Rep. Steve Scalise, the number three Republican in the House of Representatives, was critically injured along with four others.
    * As the game goes on and Washington returns to its usual squabbles, the investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential election has expanded to include President Trump.
    * Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly looking into whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice in the Russia case after firing FBI Director James Comey. Just one day after the shooting when Trump praised all the public servants working in government, the president took to Twitter to bemoan the "very bad and conflicted people" investigating him. On Wednesday the Senate voted 97-2 to restrict the president's ability to roll back sanctions to punish Russia for interfering in the 2016 election.
    What does this unusual week tell us about civility, credibility and trust in Washington? Robert Costa will discuss with: Alexis Simendinger of Real Clear Politics, Jeff Zeleny of CNN, Erica Werner of the Associated Press, Geoff Bennett of NPR, and Adam Entous of The Washington Post.

    America Reframed [#326] Before You Know It With humor and candor, thisprogram celebrates the bold and brave lives of active gay senior citizens who have witnessed unbelievable change in their lifetimes: from the Stonewall Riots and gay liberation to the HIV/AIDS pandemic and gay marriage rights. The film introduces us to Dennis, a gentle-hearted widower in his 70s who explores his sexual identity and fondness for dressing in women's clothing under the name "Dee," and becomes a resident at Rainbow Vista, a gay retirement community outside of Portland, Oregon. In Harlem, New York, we meet Ty, an impassioned activist for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights, who hears nothing but wedding bells once gay marriage legislation passes in New York; and, Robert, known as "The Mouth," who was born and reared in Houston, Texas. The son of a Southern Baptist preacher, Robert always knew he was a "sissy." But in Galveston, Texas, he is a feisty bar owner who presses on when his neighborhood institution is threatened.
    Born before the modern gay rights movement, Dennis, Ty and Robert have become pioneers in an unprecedented "out" generation of elders. They are also among the estimated 2.4 million LGBT Americans over the age of 55. While some gay Americans adhered to the cultural norms of earlier times, others became activists and made it their mission to live out, loud and proud. Each has faced discrimination, neglect and exclusion. This film reminds us that while LGBT elders face a specific set of issues, aging and its challenges are universal.

    i go home This powerful documentary chronicles the role institutionalization played in the life of people with intellectual disabilities in 1960s America. Using the story of Pennhurst State School and Hospital in eastern Pennsylvania as an example of the abuse and neglect that was taking place on a national level, the program details how those with intellectual disabilities were treated in society, the resulting changes that were needed, and the community-based efforts in place today. Archival photos and footage along with interviews with people with intellectual disabilities, advocates, researchers, scientists, parents, social workers, and many more help raise awareness about the issue and shine a light on the struggles and triumphs of the disability rights movement. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

Only recently discovered, snub-nosed monkeys are hauntingly beautiful primates, gentler than others of their kind. Elfin-like, they seem both childlike and wise beyond their years. The family is led by a formidable fighter and his fighting force who guard a troop of 8-10 families.

They only exist on this one island. Learning that their numbers have dropped dramatically, he makes a return visit to find out why and to see if he can help. Teaming up with a local expert and making a film about them and their plight allows him to share their story with the local schools and communities in the hope that a new understanding of the wonderful creatures in their midst will make them want to help, as well. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
