    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.

    Washington Week [#5713] The Trump administration's disaster response is just one setback for the president this week. Several cabinet members are under fire for spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on chartered planes. And in the GOP Senate runoff in Alabama, Mr. Trump and Republican leadership's chosen candidate was defeated by Roy Moore, the controversial former chief judge of the state's Supreme Court.
    Turning the page from the scrapped efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, President Trump rolled out the Republican plan for tax reform. The tax framework leaves a lot of details left to be worked out later, but it would reduce the number of tax brackets to three with the rate for high-income earners dropping nearly five percent. It would also raise the level for the standard deduction and child tax credit while repealing the alternative minimum tax and estate tax. Democrats immediately slammed the proposal as looking out for wealthy Americans.
    Robert Costa will discuss the week with:
    Jeff Zeleny of CNN
    Susan Davis of NPR
    Yamiche Alcindor of The New York Times
    Michael Scherer of The Washington Post
    Plus, on the Washington Week Extra: President Trump's week-long criticism of players who kneel in protest during the national anthem at NFL games has had Americans debating race and justice, protest and patriotism, and the limits of free speech. Our panel will discuss the ongoing controversy and share some of the comments posted by Washington Week viewers on Facebook.

    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)
