    Global Spirit [#208] Rumi & The Sufi Path of Love How did a 13th century Sufi mystic from Central Asia become the most widely read poet in the United States? Why did UNESCO declare 2007 as "the year of Jalaluddin Rumi"? This "Global Spirit" program brings together two distinguished studio guests from different cultural traditions: Sufi sheikh Kabir Helminski of the Mevlevi Sufi tradition, and Iranian filmmaker and multi-lingual website host Parisa Soultani, who presents portraits of Rumi "lovers" from her "gathering of lovers" project. This program mixes knowledgeable, in-depth conversations with evocative film segments from Turkey, Iran and the USA to explore the depths of Rumi's poetry and teachings. Host Phil Cousineau explores questions such as: What does Rumi's poetry and message have to offer to raising religious tolerance in today's world? What does Rumi's perspective offer to discussions of extremism? What is Rumi's concept of divine Love or "Iskh"? and How is this love similar or different than what other great teachers, such as Jesus taught? duration 58:28   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    My Neighborhood: Pilsen This engaging new 1-hour documentary is an intimate street- level look at what community engagement and activism has done for one Chicago neighborhood: Pilsen.

    Head of Joaquin Murrieta For over a decade filmmaker John J. Valadez searched for the remains of Joaquin Murrieta, a legendary Mexican outlaw who blazed a trail of revenge across California until he was caught and decapitated in the summer of 1853. A hundred and sixty-two years later Valadez believes he has the head. So he embarks on a quixotic, cross-country road trip through history, myth and memory to bury the fabled head of Joaquin Murrieta. Along the way he discovers chilling parallels with his own family story and eventually realizes that the head he will bury is only symbolic. And yet its power as a metaphor remains. Using new ground breaking scholarship and working with a team of leading historians from across the country, The Head of Joaquin Murrieta provides a dissenting view of American history from a decidedly Chicano perspective. Deeply personal, irreverent and entertaining, the film tears open a painful and long ignored historical trauma that has never been explored on American television: the lynching of Mexican Americans in the west. duration 29:00   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
