  • 12:00 am
    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.

    Across The Creek This program is a conversation among members of the Lakota, who are seeking ways to restore their culture after a legacy of colonialism. Offering a fresh perspective into the lives of the Sioux on the Rosebud and Pine Ridge reservations, the film looks at how these Sioux communities struggle to maintain tradition, while confronting the challenges of broken families, abuse, and poverty. By sharing their stories across generations, they hope to build a vision for the future. Produced by independent filmmaker John Cournoyer. duration 26:46   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    Finding Refuge The efforts of one dying woman to preserve her Native culture don't end when she passes, but prompts a renewal in finding pride in that culture. She confronts the violent event over two centuries ago that began the destruction of her people and the shame that colonialism created. duration 25:19   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)
  • 2:00 am
    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)

  • 7:00 am
    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)
