    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.

  • 1:00 am
    Komora (To Heal) What would it take you to forgive the murder of your family? What would you do if you had to choose between your life and those of 400 children? How would you redefine family if you were the only survivor in yours? And how would you react when the people who tried to exterminate your people were released from prison and returned to your community? These are just a few questions addressed by interviewees in the upcoming documentary Komora: to heal. Komora is about the orphan survivors of the 1994 Tutsi genocide in Rwanda and the people who stepped up to raise them, whether they were older siblings, orphanage caretakers, or the orphans themselves when they had no one but each other. The film is directed by two friends. Emmanuel Habimana, a law student and orphan of the genocide, teams up with Natalia Ledford, an American independent filmmaker and university student from Nebraska. As Natalia narrates the story, Emmanuel takes them throughout Rwanda and halfway around the world as he interviews his peers, family, heroes, and even former killers. From them he hopes to learn what survival has meant for his peers across Rwanda and what it means for them today to live in a society where they must share their communities with killers. duration 59:00   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

  • 3:30 am
    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.

    Doc World [#105] Among The Believers Charismatic cleric Abdul Aziz Ghazi, an ISIS supporter and Taliban ally, is waging jihad against the Pakistani state. His dream is to impose a strict version of Shariah law throughout the country, as a model for the world. A flashpoint in Aziz's holy war took place in 2007, when the government leveled his flagship mosque to the ground, killing his mother, brother, only son and 150 students. With unprecedented access, Among the Believers follows Aziz on his very personal quest to create an Islamic utopia, during the bloodiest period in Pakistan's modern history. The film also follows the lives of two teenage students who have attended madrassahs (Islamic seminaries) run by Aziz's Red Mosque network. Throughout the film, their paths diverge: Talha, 12, detaches from his moderate Muslim family and decides to become a jihadi preacher. Zarina, also 12, escapes her madrassah and joins a regular school. Over the next few years, Zarina's education is threatened by frequent Taliban attacks on schools like her own. Aziz's foil is nuclear physicist and leading educational activist Dr. Pervez Hoodbhoy. He passionately opposes Aziz through his public appearances, lectures, and the media. Opposition against Aziz comes to a head in December, 2014, when Aziz insults a grieving nation by trying to justify the brutal massacre of 132 school children in Peshawar by the Taliban. The attack ignites a movement to end extremism in Pakistan's mosques and madrassahs. Led by Hoodbhoy and others, Pakistan's moderate majority focuses on Aziz and calls for his arrest. Intimate and shocking, Among the Believers offers rare insights into the ideological battles shaping Pakistan and the Muslim world. duration 1:26:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
