    P.O.V. [#2010] Made In L.A. Los Angeles is now the country's center for apparel manufacturing, but many of its factories bear an eerie resemblance to New York's early 20th-century sweatshops. "Made in L.A." follows the remarkable journey of three Latina immigrants working in L.A.'s garment factories and their struggle for self-empowerment as they wage a three-year battle to bring a major clothing retailer to the negotiating table. This intimate film offers a rare and poignant glimpse into the "other" California, where immigrants in many industries toil long hours for sub-minimum wages, fighting for an opportunity in a new country. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 2:30 am
    P.O.V. [#1906] Al Otro Lado (To The Other Side) The proud Mexican tradition of corrido music-captured in the performances of Mexican band Los Tigres del Norte and the late Chalino Sanchez-provides both heartbeat and backbone to this rich examination of songs, drugs and dreams along the U.S./Mexico border. Al Otro Lado follows Magdiel, an aspiring corrido composer from the drug capital of Mexico, as he faces two difficult choices to better his life: to traffic drugs or to cross the border illegally into the United States. Interspersing performance footage by corrido superstars with the day-to-day struggles of Magdiel as he embarks on an uncertain journey, filmmaker Natalia Almada paints an illuminating portrait of the narcotics underworld, illegal immigration and the corrido music that chronicles it all. An Official Selection of the Tribeca Film Festival. By Natalia Almada. duration 56:35   STEREO TVPG

    POV [#2413] Last Train Home Every spring, China's cities are plunged into chaos as 130 million migrant workers journey to their home villages for the Chinese New Year in the world's largest human migration. This film takes viewers on a heart-stopping journey with the Zhangs, a couple who left infant children behind for factory jobs 16 years ago, hoping their wages would lift their children to a better life. They return to a family growing distant and a daughter longing to leave school for unskilled work. As the Zhangs navigate their new world, "Last Train Home" paints a rich, human portrait of China's rush to economic development. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    POV [#2909] From This Day Forward Meet an American family coping with one of life's most intimate transformations. Sharon Shattuck's father came out as transgender, living as Trisha.

  • 6:30 am
    P.O.V. [#1407] In The Light of Reverence Devil's Tower. The Four Corners. Mount Shasta. All places of extraordinary beauty - and impassioned controversy - as Indians and non-Indians struggle to co-exist with very different ideas about how the land should be used. For Native Americans, the land is sacred and akin to the world's greatest cathedrals. For others, the land should be used for industry and recreation. Narrated by Peter Coyote and Tantoo Cardinal (Metis), this program is a beautifully rendered account of the struggles of the Lakota in the Black Hills, the Hopi in Arizona and the Wintu in California to protect their sacred sites. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVG
  • 8:00 am
    POV [#2508] I'm Carolyn Parker: The Good, the Mad, and the Beautiful In 2005, Academy Award-winning director Jonathan Demme set out to document the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Katrina and the rebuilding of New Orleans' Lower Ninth Ward. When he met Carolyn Parker, what began as a historical documentary morphed into a vibrant character study of the courage and resiliency of this fearless matriarch and civil rights activist. "I'm Carolyn Parker: The Good, the Mad, and the Beautiful" is Demme's account of Parker's five-year crusade to rebuild her beloved neon-green house, her church, her community -- and her life. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 9:30 am
    POV [#2414] Where Soldiers Come From From a snowy, small town in northern Michigan to the mountains of Afghanistan, this film follows the four-year journey of childhood friends who join the National Guard after graduating from high school. As it chronicles the young men's transformation from restless teenagers to soldiers looking for roadside bombs to 23-year-old combat veterans trying to start their lives again, the film offers an intimate look at the young Americans who fight our wars, the families and towns they come from -- and the way one faraway conflict changes everything. duration 1:26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 11:00 am
    P.O.V. [#1403] My American Girls: A Dominican Story In vivid verite' detail, this program captures the joys and struggles over a year in the lives of the Ortiz family, first-generation immigrants from the Dominican Republic. Both funny and touching, Matthew's film captures the rewards - and costs - of pursuing the American dream. From hard-working parents who imagine retiring to their rural homeland to fast- tracking American-born daughters caught between their parents' values and this own, the film encompasses the contradictions of contemporary immigrant life. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG

When opposition to the "overnighters" reaches a boiling point, Pastor Jay makes a decision with shattering consequences. By Jesse Moss. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

[#1803] Street Fight This program follows the turbulent campaign of Cory Booker, a 32-year-old Rhodes Scholar/Yale Law graduate running for mayor of Newark, New Jersey, against Sharpe James, the four-term incumbent twice his age. An urban David and Goliath story, the film chronicles the young man's struggle against the city's entrenched political machine, which routinely uses strong-arm tactics to hold onto power. The battle sheds light on important questions about democracy, power, poverty and race. When the mayor accuses the Ivy League-educated challenger of not being "really black," the campaign forces voters to examine how they define race in America. By Marshall Curry. duration 1:26:00   STEREO TVPG-L
