  • 6:00 am
    Sol Solomon Tapatia Uyarasuk was a charismatic young Inuk and an amateur acrobat, musician and poet, who in recent years had become a rising star in the world of circus arts. A member of troupe Artcirq (Arctic Circus), Sol traveled around the world performing in Mali, Mexico, across Canada and in France.
    His upbringing, however, was unusual. Sol was raised by his grandmother, Rachel Uyarasuk, who lived a nomadic lifestyle on the territories of Baffin Island in Canada. The values imparted to Solomon, raised in the arts and traditional Inuit culture by his grandmother, deeply influenced him.
    This documentary is a moving tribute to Solomon, who was found dead in the Igloolik police station in 2012 at the age of 26. The locals suspect murder but the police suggest suicide. Solomon's family and friends are still waiting for an official answer regarding the circumstances of his death.
    As the documentary investigates the truth about Solomon's death, it sheds light on the underlying social issues of Canada's North that has resulted in the region claiming one of the highest youth suicide rates in the world. The film explores how the pain of suicide has affected the people in these small northern communities and their resilience and determination to create a better future for their people.

  • 7:00 am
    Salsa! The Dance Sensation Dubbed by many the most popular social dance in the world, it is practiced today by people of all ages, ethnicities, and cultures. In South Florida, this Latin-flavored dance, infused with Caribbean and African roots, is performed with distinct passion and artistry. From the nightclubs to the performance halls, from senior centers to salsa schools, the dance that began as a folk tradition has exploded into the mainstream. Today, an array of stories, histories, and traditions are recounted on dance floors across the region.
    This documentary delves into the dance as an art form, as a bonding agent, and as a chronicler of history and family tradition. From the top performers at the Miami Salsa Congress to salsa school students, it reveals the compelling stories behind this cultural phenomenon. From Casino-style to Colombian, from Puerto Rican to Dominican, the varied forms of the dance help delineate cultural identities, while also creating connections and friendships.

  • 7:30 am
    Compadre Huashayo Inspired by the Ecuadoran huashayo, an individual appointed to hire musicians for a special celebration, Grammy-winning Western classical composer Gabriela Frank - a member of the multicultural and genre-bending Silk Road Ensemble - decided to recreate a traditional Western composition and use only South America's native instruments. The resulting piece, "Compadre Huashayo," is a lively and intriguing cultural blend of tone and style.
    This Emmy-nominated documentary follows the story of this custom-designed composition, which fuses stylistic traits from two different musical traditions. It captures Frank's trips to local villages for inspiration, the workshopping of ideas across two continents, rehearsals with the 40-member ensemble La Orquesta de Instrumentos Andinos (Orchestra of Andean Instruments), the collaboration with award-winning Chilean conductor Alejandra Urrutia, and the sold-out opening night in the Ecuadoran capital of Quito. In interviews, Gabriela speaks about the project's tight four-month turnaround and the challenges of scoring a symphony made up entirely of indigenous instruments. Orchestra members - some of whom were self-trained - discuss undertaking the challenging, yet rewarding piece, and the deeper meaning behind the project.
