    @Home This documentary journeys through the landscape of a forgotten America, introducing the invisible communities of people living without permanent housing. It examines the crisis of homelessness through the lens of eactivist Mark Horvath, who harnesses social media's potential to democratize and empower the less fortunate.
    The program follows Horvath on a whirlwind road trip across the country, from Las Vegas to Arkansas to Pittsburgh, as he interviews newly and chronically homeless people in tent cities, under bridges and at by-the-week motels. These individuals challenge stereotypes by sharing their stories and revealing their simple but life-changing wishes for a place to live, a job and the ability to help others. The film also explores the toll homelessness took on Horvath, too, as he shares his fight to rebuild his life while devoting himself to helping others.

    Influenza 1918: American Experience [#1005] As the nation mobilized for war in the spring of 1918, ailing Private Albert Gitchell reported to an army hospital in Kansas.

    After Ebola: Preparing for a Pandemic The most contagious and deadly diseases in the world could be on our doorstep overnight. Would we recognize the symptoms? Could we treat the disease or keep it from spreading? An elite, specially trained group at the University of Nebraska Medical Center mobilized to face this reality late in the summer of 2014, when three patients infected with the Ebola virus were transferred to the hospital for treatment. The unit spent 10 years preparing for patients with dangerous, highly contagious diseases, but this was no dress rehearsal. It was a worst-case scenario - with possible deadly consequences. We examine preparedness and planning for a potential pandemic requiring quarantine and containment and lessons learned when those plans were put into action. duration 57:00   STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

    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)
  • 8:30 pm
    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
