Ever The Land (Episode #603)

KQED World: Mon, May 21, 2018 -- 5:00 PM

Ever The Land explores the sublime bond between people and their land. For the past 150 years, longstanding grievances over extreme colonization tactics have defined the Ngai (tribe) Tuhoe and New Zealand governments relationship. In 2014 history was made when the Tuhoe's ancestral homelands were returned, the New Zealand government gave a official apology and Tuhoe built the first ever "Living Building" in Aotearoa, New Zealand as a testament to their values and vision of self-governance.

Being Bruno Banani (Episode #703H)

KQED World: Mon, May 14, 2018 -- 5:00 PM

Being Bruno Banani tells the unique story of the first and only Tongan Luger who managed to qualify in an amazingly short amount of time for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. Through his name he also acted as the first "living brand" using a completely new and disputed way to get around the strict IOC's Olympic advertising regulations.

Making Good Men (Episode #702)

KQED World: Mon, May 7, 2018 -- 5:00 PM

What would you say if you came face to face with your childhood bully as an adult? Maybe you have it all mapped out in your head, maybe you've practiced your speech a million times. Or were you the bully? Have you ever thought about whether you would acknowledge your past, given the opportunity? In this moving and remarkably told story, two high profile men, a former All Black rugby player and a Hollywood actor, reveal their unforgettable account of bullying with unprecedented honesty. It's also about how the cycle of abuse, which is all too often seen in New Zealand families, can and must be broken. Making Good Menis not a story of blame or humiliation. It is a path to forgiveness, redemption, reconciliation and ultimately to restoration.

Poi E: The Story of Our Song (Episode #701)

KQED World: Tue, May 1, 2018 -- 6:00 AM

Not many songs in the history of the Universe have the power to bridge cultures, save towns, change lives, travel the world, set records and give pride to a culture, a community, a language and a people. "POI E: the story of our song" is the unbelievable true story of a song that did and the man who did it - Dalvanius Prime. "POI E: the story of our song" is a film about the New Zealand entertainer Dalvanius Prime, who returns home to Patea from the cabaret stage of Australia to nurse his dying mother. Upon his return, he discovers that his community is suffering from the closure of the township's main industry, the Freezing Works. Dalvanius Prime teams up with the Maori language expert Ngoi Pcwhairangi and his family of ex--freezing workers, the Patea Maori Club. And together they bring a song to life, which affects the spirit and cultural pride of Maori and New Zealand forever.
