    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)

    Nine to Ninety Every morning after taking a long list of medications, 89-year-old Phyllis Sabatini does her calisthenics and goes on a long walk around the Palm Desert neighborhood where she lives with her husband, daughter, and granddaughter. "Grandmom" may only be 4' 7,'' but she still stands tall as the head of a close-knit Italian American family struggling to come to terms with the declining health of its aging parents. Phyllis is facing her last chapter with courage and determination, but her 90-year-old husband Joe seems to have given up; he's detached and prefers to sleep most of the day.
    Phyllis loves her family. She especially relishes the time she spends with her granddaughter, Jacqueline. But she sees how much strain taking care of her and Joe is putting on their family. As she watches her daughter struggle to care for everyone from 9 to 90, Phyllis makes a radical decision to move into assisted living. Phyllis Sabatini realizes that leaving home is difficult at any age, but she learns that sometimes, the best way to say "I love you" is to say "goodbye."

    Passing On Deceased. Departed. Passed away. No matter how you say it, it happens to all of us. More than 2.5 million people will die in the United States this year. One big difference between the quality of those deaths is where they occur. At home surrounded by family and loved ones, or in the Intensive Care Unit hooked up to pulsing machines with blinking lights. The difference usually comes down to whether you passed on your dying wishes before passing on? Death is as much a part of human existence as is life, yet it remains a mysterious, often taboo subject. This documentary explores end-of-life through a series of compelling and sensitive stories that will engage you emotionally and provide you with valuable information. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
