    Navajo Math Circles This program follows Navajo students in a collaboration with mathematicians. Using a model called math circles, the students stay late after school and assemble over the summer at Dine College in Tsaile, Arizona, to study mathematics. The math circles approach emphasizes student-centered learning by putting children in charge of exploring mathematics to their own joy and satisfaction. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Changing Seas [#901] The Future of Seafood It is estimated there will be two billion more people on the planet by mid-century. To feed this booming world population, more fish will need to be farmed than ever before. One way to increase fish production in a sustainable way is to move aquaculture operations offshore - where there is plenty of available space and strong currents flush out the pens to avoid polluting sensitive ecosystems. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Changing Seas [#902] Toxic Algae: Complex Sources and Solutions Lake Okeechobee was once the blue heart of Florida, pumping fresh water down to the Everglades and beyond. But now that a dike and canal system control its flow, water releases from the lake periodically create putrid mats of blue green algae. Scientists think water pollution is to blame, and if something isn't done about it there could be irreparable damage to the environment, the local economy and people's health. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Changing Seas [#903] The Fate of Carbon For millennia, the exchange of CO2 between the oceans and atmosphere has been in balance. Now, with more anthropogenic carbon-dioxide in the atmosphere, the oceans are taking up more CO2 as well. This additional CO2 is negatively impacting sensitive ecosystems through a process called ocean acidification, and scientists worry how changes to the ocean environment will affect the way carbon is cycled through the seas. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Changing Seas [#904] Majestic Mantas The remote Revillagegdo Archipelago off Mexico's Pacific coast is a hotspot for giant mantas that interact with awe-struck scuba divers. Scientists are studying the local population using photo ID techniques and acoustic tags which track the movements of these mysterious fish. They are also conducting experiments to see if the filter-feeding rays are impacted negatively by microplastics, tiny pieces of toxic trash that float in the ocean. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Bard in the Backcountry A behind-the-scenes look at a summer of Montana Shakespeare in the Parks - from first read through to final performance. The documentary chronicles a summer season with a cast of 10 actors as they journey more than 6500 miles to perform Shakespeare in the rural towns of this vast region. As these young actors travel hundreds of miles every day to set up their stage, don their costumes and perform their roles, they learn about the discipline of a traveling company, the generosity of spirit needed to become part of a team, and the sheer magnitude of the terrain found across Montana.
    The landscape itself is a primary force in the players' experience as they perform each night in a new location. The tour leads them into the lives of residents in these communities, some as small as 14 people. Many of the people encountered are loyal fans who have seen Shakespeare rendered every summer for 40 years.
    At the heart of the story is a sense of transformation for the players and for the residents of Montana whose lives have been touched by this beloved company. The film reveals the mutual impact the traveling tour has on these young actors and the people who put in the effort to bring Shakespeare to town. This journey provides a glimpse of the relevance that classic Shakespearean theater still holds for the townspeople across the region.

    Chaplains [#101] Part 1 Through personal profiles, this film explores the daily life of chaplains throughout society, from their role in the military and the workplace to their work in prisons and behind-the-scenes of NASCAR. With a tradition dating back centuries, chaplains today are on the front lines - often in the midst of life and death situations - where the questions are the deepest, and the need for spiritual and pastoral care the greatest. The film provides a window into religious diversity in America today and the murky nature of the American principle of separation of religion and state. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Nature [#3203] Invasion of the Killer Whales A remarkable new story is unfolding in the Arctic, one that has never been told before. As the ice shrinks, the polar bear is struggling to survive in a fast melting world. Polar bears are great hunters on ice but recently their home ground is vanishing from under their feet. Although classified as a marine mammal, the polar bear is not adapted to hunting in the water despite being able to swim huge distances. And they are certainly no match for the world's greatest aquatic hunter -- the killer whale. In the last few years, scientists have started noting an ever-growing number of killer whales in Arctic waters in the summer months. More and more have been attracted to these huge hunting grounds by the growing expanses of open water. And they are attacking exactly the same prey animals as the polar bears: seals, narwhal, belugas and bowhead whales. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Doc World [#114] Out Run As leader of the world's only LGBT political party, Bemz Benedito dreams of being the first transgender woman in the Philippine Congress. But in a predominantly Catholic nation, rallying for LGBT representation in the halls of Congress is not an easy feat. Bemz and her eclectic team of queer political warriors must rethink traditional campaign strategies to amass support from unlikely places. Taking their equality campaign to small-town hair salons and regional beauty pageants, the activists mobilize working-class trans hairdressers and beauty queens to join the fight against their main political opponent, a homophobic evangelical preacher, and prove to the Filipino electorate that it's time to take the rights of LGBT people seriously. But as outsiders trying to get inside the system, will they have to compromise their political ideals in order to win? Culminating on election day, OUT RUN provides a unique look into the challenges LGBT people face as they transition into the mainstream and fight for dignity, legitimacy, and acceptance across the globe. duration 56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
  • 8:00 pm
    Stateless Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Duc H. Nguyen follows the stories of Vietnamese refugees who have been living in a condition of statelessness in the Philippines for 16 years while awaiting a rare opportunity for resettlement in the United States. Many may be familiar with the mass exodus of Vietnamese refugees following the 1975 fall of Saigon, but most do not know that there are still Vietnamese refugees seeking asylum today.
    This program follows the stories of refugees such as Nguyen Phuc Trong, who has unsuccessfully attempted to escape from Vietnam numerous times since 1975. The great risks that refugees like Phuc Trong take are centered around their anticipation and hope of an opportunity for resettlement. In Manila, lawyer and activist Trinh Hoi and his legal aid center team help the nearly 2000 Vietnamese "long-stayers" resolve the legal limbo that has rendered them stateless.
