    88 Days in the Mother Lode: Mark Twain Finds His Voice Through Mark Twain's own words from his letters home, his short stories, books and his autobiography, discover how three months is California's Sierra Nevada Mountains led to the writing of "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" and helped transform Sam Clemens into Mark Twain.
    In November of 1864, just days after his 29th birthday, Samuel Clemens posted a $500 bail bond for a friend with money he didn't have. The friend jumped bail and Clemens had to escape San Francisco. He sought refuge in a cabin on Jackass Hill in Tuolumne County. He would spend the next 88 days on the hill and in nearby Angels Camp drinking a little, smoking a little, mining a little and listening a lot - to people and the stories they told.
    More than just "the place he heard the story about the frog," Clemens' 3 month stay in the Sierra Nevada Foothills would help change the course of his life and he would write about his time there in stories, sketches and essays for the rest of his life. Filmed on location in Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties where the actual events took place, this documentary takes an in-depth look at those pivotal 88 days in the life of Sam Clemens and the career of Mark Twain.

    Mark Twain's Journey to Jerusalem: Dreamland MARK TWAIN'S JOURNEY TO JERUSALEM: DREAMLAND retraces Mark Twain's footsteps as a cub reporter on a bold adventure sailing around the Mediterranean and throughout Europe in 1867, with Jerusalem and the Holy Land as his ultimate destination. Narrated by Martin Sheen, the documentary reveals Twain's deep rooted and complex relationship with religion. Having regularly attended church services as a child with his devoutly Christian mother, and thoroughly educated on Christianity and the Bible, his childhood imaginings of the Holy Land are confronted with a vastly different reality; the monuments, cities, and landscapes aren't as grand as the Scriptures led him to believe. He also finds himself disillusioned by the poverty and squalor he witnesses beneath the "splendor" of European culture. The film chronicles Mark Twain's exploits on his landmark journey and establishes Twain as the voice of America - funny, sarcastic, and powerfully opinionated. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    The Verdigris: In Search of Will Rogers When singer-songwriter Beau Jennings set out to make his latest album, he thought the subject would be about his experiences in Brooklyn, NY, his current home. However, as Jennings worked on the album, he was drawn to a childhood hero of his - the legendary entertainer and political commentator Will Rogers. After writing several songs about the American icon, Jennings decided to further explore the source of his inspiration with a cross-country road trip, resulting in the sentimental documentary THE VERDIGRIS: IN SEARCH OF WILL ROGERS. Named for the river Verdigris that runs through the Oklahoma hometowns of both Rogers and Jennings, the documentary is a unique rendering of Rogers' legacy. Jennings retraces the steps of the legendary Oklahoman, visiting locations where significant milestones occurred in Rogers' life, performing original songs about those events, and interviewing people who shaped or were influenced by the "Cherokee Kid." duration 57:35   STEREO TVG

    Rudy Maxa's World [#110] Buenos Aires, Argentina The style and verve of one of South America's most beautiful capitals is the focus of this episode that highlights Argentina's national dance, the tango, as well as the energy that its diverse population brings to the urban landscape. The HD lens brings to the fore the graceful and classic architecture of Buenos Aires, exemplified by the San Telmo neighborhood whose Sunday market is traditionally closed at sunset by an impromptu street band that marches through the streets, collecting dancers and revelers with its insistent drumbeats. At local tango parlors called milongas, Buenos Aires residents, known as portenos, lend an air of authenticity to the dance that grew up in the working class neighborhoods of the city. We wander the famous Recoleta cemetery in downtown Buenos Aires, where incredible monuments to the departed, including Eva Peron, feature winged angels and other fantastically decorated crypts. Meet a 70-year-old ice cream maker from Sicily who never misses a day's work. And explore the underground art scene that's finding a home in Buenos Aires. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Johnny Cash's Bitter Tears Based on Antonino D'Ambrosio's book A Heartbeat and a Guitar: Johnny Cash and the Making of Bitter Tears, this film tells the story behind Cash's lost Native American-themed concept album and his unique collaboration with folk artist Peter Lafarge. With the still largely unknown recording, Cash placed himself in the middle of the fervent social upheavals gripping the nation in the mid-1960s; facing censorship and an angry backlash from radio stations, DJs and fans for speaking out on behalf of Native people, Cash decided to fight back. The film also chronicles the reimagining of Cash's highly controversial 1964 record on its 50th anniversary, as recorded at Nashville's historic Sound Emporium Studios by such artists as Kris Kristofferson, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Norman Blake, Nancy Blake, Rhiannon Giddens, Gillian Welch, Dave Rawlings, and The Milk Carton Kids, working with album producer Joe Henry and legendary studio musicians Dennis Crouch, Patrick Warren, and Jay Bellerose. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Grand Coulee Dam: American Experience Grand Coulee was more than a dam; it was a proclamation. In the wake of the Great Depression, America turned from private enterprise to public works - not simply to provide jobs, but to restore faith. The ultimate expression of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, Grand Coulee played a central role in transforming the Northwest; it was the largest hydroelectric power producing facility in the world when it was completed in March 1941. After WWII, a vast irrigation project made possible by the dam helped turn the barren deserts of central Washington into rich farmland. But the dam prevented access to one of the greatest salmon rivers in the world. Deprived of the salmon - their most important resource - the native people who lived along the Columbia witnessed a profound cultural decline. Featuring the men and women who lived and worked at Grand Coulee and the native people whose lives were changed, as well as historians and engineers, this film explores how the tension between technological achievement and environmental impact hangs over the project's legacy. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

The Iroquois people play a ceremonial game of lacrosse, referred to as the "medicine game" - a very important medicine ceremony played to ward off sicknesses from the tribe. The obstacles in the brothers' way are frequent and daunting, but their love for the game, each other, and their family's unyielding determination propels these young men towards their dream. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Racing The Rez For the Navajo and Hopi, running is much more than a sport, it is woven into the cultural fabric of their lives. Encouraged by their elders, many Navajos and Hopis begin running at an early age - to greet the morning sun, to prepare for a ceremony or simply to challenge themselves in the vast, southwestern landscape. In the rugged canyon lands of Northern Arizona, Navajo and Hopi cross-country runners from two rival high schools vie for the state championship while striving to find their place among their native people and the larger American culture. Win or lose, what they learn over the course of two racing seasons has a dramatic effect on the rest of their lives.
    Combining interviews with verite-style shooting, this documentary offers a rare view into the surprising complexity and diversity of contemporary reservation life, from the point of view of five teenage boys on the cusp of adulthood. It follows Ryan, Dennis, Billy, Johnny and Joyai from the classrooms to their remote, un-electrified homes, from grueling runs across canyons and mesas to their ultimate day of reckoning - the state meet - and beyond.
