    The Blueprint: The Story of Adventist Education This program focuses on Seventh-day Adventist education, the third-largest private-school system in the US and the second-largest in the world. More than a century ago, Adventist Ellen White championed the now widely used "whole person" approach to education that encompasses body, mind and spirit. This "blueprint for education" specifically emphasizes skilled training, healthy living and community service within a safe, faith-based environment.
    This program ventures into the classrooms of a few of the nearly 1000 schools across the United States operated by Adventists. In many cases, these schools provide students sanctuary from troubled home lives, tough neighborhoods and negative influences. Profiled schools include: The Bronx-Manhattan School in New York, The Holbrook Navajo Indian School in Arizona, Spencerville Adventist Academy in Maryland, Fletcher Academy in North Carolina, Pinon Hills School in New Mexico and Columbine Christian School in Colorado. The film also features interviews with school administrators, teachers, students, historians and education pioneer Parker Palmer, author of The Courage to Teach.

    America Reframed [#409] Dog Days Dog Days is directed and produced by Laura Waters Hinson and Kasey Kirby, a filmmaking duo based in Washington, DC. After losing his job in 2009, Coite Manuel sets off to build his dream business with the help of two unlikely women: Deane, his harp-playing aunt, and Siyone, an East African hotdog vendor and single mother of four. Staking his meager life savings on a vision to revive Washington, D.C.'s dwindling hotdog vending community, Coite faces bewildering challenges, from hostile city regulations to an entrenched local monopoly to the sudden popularity of food trucks. Even though success doesn't come easily, the characters fight to maintain hope in the face of adversity. Filmed over the course of four years, Dog Days follows its colorful characters as they navigate the contentious underworld of street food in the nation's capital. A captivating portrait of American entrepreneurship, Dog Days explores themes of immigration, vocation, and the power of perseverance. Featuring original songs by indie artists such as Sleeping at Last, Zach Williams, Andy Zipf, and others, Dog Days journeys to a world where the top dogs of big business meet the underdogs of street food in a comically serious caper about the promise and struggle of the American Dream. duration 1:56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

    Summer Hill From the late 19th century until the civil rights movement, the black people of Cartersville, Georgia (near Atlanta) lived exclusively in the Summer Hill section of town. The documentary SUMMER HILL is a compelling look at the influence of one small, tightly knit community - its school, churches and civic leaders - on its residents. Despite poverty, racism and limited opportunity, Summer Hill - and its segregated school - flourished for four generations. Summer Hill produced Georgia's first black Supreme Court justice; a famous Motown songwriter; teachers, ministers, doctors, lawyers and other professionals; and many others who have made major contributions to their hometown and to society. In their own words, the people of Summer Hill tell the empowering story of their community, and reveal its lasting legacy of hope. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Our American Family: The Mays The first half of the 1900's represents the last era of American life that, for most families, began largely unchanged from the generations that came before. Courage brought 17-year-old Jacob May to the US from Germany in 1879 in search of a better life. That same courage enabled his family to rescue 200 Jews from Nazi Germany. Moving from poverty to prosperity, the May Hosiery Mill grew through three generations to contribute commerce and compassion within the Nashville community and beyond. Deeply committed to one another, bolstered by good humor, theirs is a story of fearless hope and courage. duration 29:00   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Jewish Film Showcase [#102] Carvalho's Journey A real-life 19th century American western adventure story about Solomon Nunes Carvalho, an observant Sephardic Jew born in 1815 in Charleston, South Carolina. In 1853, traveling with John Fremont's 5th Westward Expedition through Kansas, Colorado, Utah, and California, Carvalho became one of the first photographers to document the sweeping vistas and treacherous terrain of the far American West. Living alongside mountain men, Native Americans, and Mormons, Carvalho overcame enormous odds to produce beautiful art: daguerreotypes that became the lens through which the world experienced the West. The film interweaves stunning HD digital and 16mm film landscape cinematography, rare 19th century photographs, Carvalho's surviving artwork and daguerreotypes, and interviews with scholars and artists, including modern day daguerreotypist Robert Shlaer who recreates Carvalho's original daguerreotypes on location. The documentary is narrated by award winning actor Michael Stuhlbarg (Boardwalk Empire, Steve Jobs) with original music by Jamie Saft (composer, Murderball). duration 1:28:15   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)
