Their American-born daughters have different ideas and aspirations. These bittersweet contradictions form the core of the film as we watch the family sort out the rewards and the costs of pursuing the American dream.Sandra, the mother, grew up in the Dominican Republic, with 14 brothers and sisters, where there was no electricity or running water. She came to Brooklyn in 1975, all alone, seeking better work and pay. She and her husband, Bautista, hold two jobs each as hospital cleaners. Despite their long hours and relatively low pay, they provide their children with a comfortable lifestyle and the advantages of an American education.Their daughters represent the next generation of immigrants. Their eldest Monica (21), is an achiever who attends an ivy league college. She has an American boyfriend and has separated herself from the Dominican community , although she maintains close family ties. Aida (16) is a typical middle child, finding her way between the world of the streets and the ambitions of her parents. The youngest daughter Mayra (14) is a self proclaimed ""ghetto"" kid. She is failing in school and mainly wants to hang out with her friends. Sandra struggles to do right by each of them. Sandra s five-story house is filled with members of the extended family, grandmothers, aunts, uncles, cousins and attendant infants. Sandra realizes the irony that fulfilling her retirement dream will mean leaving her family once again.

Place matters","","30 min 25 sec","[u'Unnatural causes']","Why is your street address such a good predictor of your health? Latino and Southeast Asian immigrants like Gwai Boonkeut have been moving into long-neglected urban neighborhoods such as those in Richmond, California, a predominantly Black city in the San Francisco Bay Area. Segregation and lack of access to jobs, nutritious foods, and safe, affordable housing have been harmful to the health of long-time African American residents, and now the newcomers' health is suffering too. In Gwai's environment, petrochemical companies release tons of pollutants each year. But other environmental factors may pose a greater threat to his health. Richmond has higher than average rates of asthma hospitalization, higher rates of diabetes, and lower life expectancy. Not coincidentally, Gwai's area also has higher rates of poverty, lower income rates, and lower rates of educational attainment. Tobacco, liquor and fast food are everywhere, but fresh produce isn't. Quality affordable housing is hard to find, and so are safe places to play and exercise. Sixty-five years ago, Richmond was a boom town. During World War II, the Kaiser shipyard ran 24 hours a day. The war effort drew workers of all ethnicities. But when the war ended and the shipyards closed, thousands of jobs left. Many white families took advantage of federally backed home loans to start fresh in new areas, but discriminatory policies and practices excluded people of colour from those same opportunities. Between 1934 and 1962, less than 2% of {lcub}dollar{rcub}120 billion in government-backed home loans went to non-white households. In Northern California around the same time period, out of 350,000 federally guaranteed new home loans, fewer than 100 went to Black families. All across America, in cities like Richmond, African Americans were left behind in increasingly neglected neighborhoods. As social conditions worsen, so does health. Studies have shown, for example, that living in a disadvantaged neighborhood leads to a 50-80% increase in risk for heart disease, the number one killer in America. One reason is chronic stress. Worrying about violence, lousy schools, and unpaid bills; living in substandard housing or a polluted environment; not having good access to fresh food, reliable transportation, or safe public spaces, all of these have a negative, even toxic effect on health. In the Pacific Northwest, a neighborhood that was once much like Richmond, High Point in West Seattle, is emerging as a promising alternative. Community members, local government and developers took a radical approach in rebuilding this neighborhood, using federal funding to create a mixed-income community with health as its focus. Here, community gardeners grow and sell organic produce to other residents; neighbors socialize along clean, safe streets; children play in the park; and families with asthma breathe easily in specially designed homes. Although High Point isn't perfect, it's an example of what can happen when residents, government agencies, local officials, foundations and private business work together and take health into account. As Harvard's David Williams reminds us, Housing policy is health policy. Neighborhood improvement policies are health policies. Everything that we can do to improve the quality of life for individuals in our society has an impact on their health and is a health policy.","[u'Williams, David', u'Boonkeut, Gwai']","[u'Richmond', u'South Africa', u'Panama', u'David', u'United States', u'High Point']","[u'neighbors', u'heart', u'work', u'neighborhood', u'play', u'society', u'americans', u'social conditions', u'home', u'children', u'cities', u'asthma', u'housing', u'government', u'health', u'income', u'shipyards', u'housing policy', u'african americans', u'war', u'local government', u'life', u'families', u'risk', u'business', u'quality of life', u'food', u'african', u'reason', u'segregation', u'gardeners', u'foundations', u'african american', u'world war', u'loans', u'latino', u'neighborhoods', u'pollutants', u'colour', u'immigrants', u'suffering', u'american', u'time']","[u'Documentary films, television films', u'Documentary films']" "fod1000114051","stream","","Immigration Orphans: How US Policy is Hurting American Kids ","","8 min 33 sec","","More than 100,000 American children are affected by parental deportations each year.

He then shows the ways illegal immigrants find work -� by cloning other people's identities.He manages to secure employment using someone else's papers and asks is it ever possible to clamp down entirely on illegal immigration? We also focus on the ease with which forged documents can be obtained that give immigrants the right to work in Britain.

Huddled together in cold, flimsy tents and hounded by daily police raids, the immigrants struggle to survive with no food, money or peace of mind, but their determination to reach the promised land is unyielding. Samura meets Gus and Theo who have decided to swim around the fence and thus into Europe, an extremely dangerous method of entry which many have paid for with their lives. The next day news arrives that only Theo made it to other side. Gus was captured. Samura leaves the Moroccan forest and meets with Theo in Ceuta. Together they try to earn some money parking cars. Samura soon discovers a derelict factory known as the Longhouse where those on the run from immigration authorities live. The conditions are horrifying. For these people, the dream of Europe has already turned into a nightmare. Samura travels through several cities of mainland Spain where he begs, sleeps rough, performs odd jobs and learns inside tricks to survive as an immigrant. He encounters Thommy, a stranger of amazing generosity, who helps him raise money to continue his journey.He also meets people who try to con him out of his earnings. The world of the newly arrived immigrant, Samura soon learns, has at least as many pitfalls as ladders. Through a connection man, Samura crosses the Spanish/ French border, and onwards by train he reaches Calais. This is the hub for all immigrants trying to enter the UK. Samura is surprised to find living conditions and scenes of desperation as bad as those in Morocco. Arick, a Sudanese immigrant, explains: 'Every second, every minute I am trying to get to England. At least in London they treat you like a human being'�. That night, Samura and Arick break into a lorry heading for the UK. Once inside they must stay completely still, but after an hour of waiting they are caught and arrested. In the end, through astonishing circumstances, both Sorious and Arick do reach their final destination. It has been an incredible journey, but was all the suffering really worth it? 'Living with Illegals' is one of this year's most extraordinary documentaries. Offering unprecedented access and unique insights into the world of African illegal immigration, it raises important questions about the rights of individuals to seek a better life free of poverty and war.

Beginning in the fifties, Rinzler sought out and encouraged folk musicians in the bluegrass, Cajun, shout and Native American traditions. In this film, performers such as Doc Watson, Pete Seeger, David Grisman, the Moving Star Hall Singers and Bernice Johnson Reagon, to name a few, throw heart and soul into song. They remember Ralph's friendship and support, as well as his enthusiasm for new talent. It was Ralph who convinced the Smithsonian Institute that a department should be created for American folk culture. Under his leadership, the Smithsonian produced the annual Folklife Festival and later purchased Folkway Records from Moe Ash, thus preserving American indigenous music for the enjoyment of future generations. The film is a rich tapestry of folk experience expressed in music and oral history. The civil rights movement, the labor movement, the troubles of farm workers, and the longing of immigrants -- all these are expressed in the folk tradition Rinzler helped preserve.","[u'Smithsonian Institution', u'Seeger, Pete', u'Rinzler, Ralph']","[u'United States']","[u'heart', u'civil rights', u'immigrants', u'labor', u'american', u'musicians', u'music', u'singers', u'research', u'friendship']","[u'Documentary films']" "fod100008549","stream","","The People's Army","1998","54 min.","[u""Tkuma: Israel's First 50 Years""]","Born in battle and ever struggling to survive, Israel requires compulsory military service for women as well as men.

The clothing design, retail and manufacturing business that he established in the small Victorian town of Warrnambool would, at its peak, encompass 55 stores around Australia and employ over 2750 people. It was called Fletcher Jones and Staff, because the staff actually owned the company. Fletcher Jones set up the business as a workers' co-operative, based on principles of fairness, decency and integrity. His emphasis was on value, quality, service and scientific innovation but his primary concern was for people—both his customers and his workers—and they, in turn, were intensely loyal. This documentary celebrates the life of an inspiring man with bold and imaginative ideas, whose entrepreneurial skills and marketing acumen became legendary. It also looks at those who helped him achieve his dream, exploring his relationship with Japanese reformer Toyohiko Kagawa—one of the most remarkable social activists and thinkers of the early 20th century—and highlighting the vital contribution of migrant workers to the ragtrade. It's a story carried along on the tide of 20th century Australian history: the aftermath of war, the challenge of global capitalism, the impact of immigration and the rise and fall of modern industry.

The first city is Punta Arenas, located on the shores of the Straits of Magellan and the largest city in the region. Translated as ""sandy point,"" the city is also known as ""the city of red roofs"" because of its colorful skyline. It is the southernmost city in South America and reached its golden age between 1850 and 1914 due to its wool and fishing industries. Its imposing cathedral on the central square and its 19th century architecture reflect this boom time, and the memorial statue to Ferdinand Magellan recalls its history. We visit a sheep ranch and a rookery to see the penguins before heading north to Puerto Montt, a fishing center settled by German immigrants in the late 1800s. Situated on a narrow coastal plain with the Andes Mountains in the background, Puerto Montt is a tranquil city with an active fishing economy, and its German heritage is evident in its alpine houses with balconies. It is the gateway to Chile's Lake District, and the active volcano Orsano dominates the area.

The golden age of the lighthouse is over. Most lighthouses have been already automated or are scheduled to be automated sometime over the next few years. The golden age of the lighthouse dates from the 19th century. The expansion of trade, the birth of colonial empires, and the transportation of millions of immigrants all called for a better system of identifying coastlines. The lighthouses, solitary and beautiful, will survive, but lighthouse keepers are another matter. Victims of the electronic age, they are no longer needed when the lighthouse can so easily be maintained by automation in the modern era of technology. The documentary was filmed at the lighthouses of Ar-Men, Cordouan, Kereon, and Le Creac'h in France; Bonavista, Cape Race, Sable Island, and Pointe Amour in Canada; Bell Rock and Longstone in Great Britain; and, in the United States, Boston, Portland, Maine, and the Statue of Liberty, in New York City.","","[u'Canada', u'Czech Republic', u'Boston', u'Liberty', u'France', u'United States', u'Most', u'New York City', u'Portland']","[u'lighthouses', u'modern', u'transportation', u'age', u'immigrants', u'automation', u'lighthouse keepers', u'birth', u'history']","" "asp2796601-silf","stream","","The immigrant","","25 min","","Chaplin and Purviance are immigrants who meet on the boat to America, broke but in love.","[u'Chaplin, Charlie']","","[u'immigrants']","[u'Silent films', u'Comedy films']" "asp2542895-blsv","stream","","Black Americans and black immigrants","1989","27 min.","[u'Black studies in video', u""Tony Brown's Journal""]","This panel discussion, directed by Bob Morris, features black Americans and black immigrants.","[u'Morris, Bob']","","[u'discussion', u'immigrants', u'americans']","[u'Documentary films']" "kan1127535-127536","stream","","Issei : The First Generation","","50 min","","""Lost"" 1984 documentary, rediscovered and restored, about Japanese men and women who, at the turn of the century, immigrated to the West Coast of the United States.

This film seeks to broaden the discussion by turning attention to Indian immigrants, an emerging and essential part of the immigration conversation. Highly educated and rapid in their collective progression up the economic ladder, Indian immigrants are perhaps just what the doctor ordered for the American economy in thiscomplicated, globalized world.. Given the unique demands of this country's new-age, hi-tech economy going forward, Indian immigrants, who hold disproportionate numbers of degrees in science and technology fields, stand to be among the primary driving forces of American progress in the 21st century. In playing that role, this diverse group follows in a grand tradition that should be familiar to all Americans, evoking cultural pluralism, the immigrant experience and the American Dream.

Frustrated with federal inaction and rising border tensions, Arizona lawmakers ignite a national maelstrom by instituting SB 1070. The tough law is designed to make life so harsh for unauthorized immigrants that they will ""self-deport."" Supporters call SB 1070 a common sense law enforcement tool; opponents see it as a dangerous infringement of civil rights that would inevitably lead to harassment and racial profiling.

On January 17th, 1999, Al Capone would have celebrated his 100th birthday. His exploits in the early part of the century have inspired authors, journalists and filmmakers. Myths have always been woven around the figure of Al Capone. Born in Brooklyn, he began his career in crime as protege to New York underworld boss Frankie Yale in the early 1920's, and then moved to Chicago where he made himself a multi-millionaire from the protection business, gambling, brothels, and speakeasies. He is most infamous for planning the massacre of seven members of a rival gang on Valentine's Day in 1929. This was also the year the Justice Department named Eliot Ness to form a special crime-busting squad which came to be known as The Untouchables. In 1931 Alphonse Capone was convicted on income tax evasion and began an eleven year sentence in the Federal Prison on Alcatraz Island. Capone died in 1947 and is buried in Chicago's Mount Carmel Cemetery. But who really was this man? How did this child of Neapolitan immigrants become the most legendary gangster of the Roaring Twenties. Using historical film footage, movie scenes, and dramatic recreations filmed on location in Chicago, Brooklyn, Ellis Island, Florida's Palm Island, and Alcatraz, Al Capone: The Untouchable Legend not only depicts the rise and fall of Scarface, but also looks behind the myths at the private family man. Interviews with Capone's nephew Harry Hart, and with Capone experts John Binder, Dennis Hoffman and William Balsamo all help to illuminate the social and economic milieu of the '20s and '30s that led to the rise of the Mafia.","","[u'Netherlands', u'Uruguay', u'Chicago', u'Florida', u'United States', u'Born', u'Brooklyn', u'New York']","[u'income tax', u'child', u'journalists', u'family', u'justice', u'prison', u'interviews', u'immigrants', u'crime', u'planning', u'income', u'tax evasion', u'biography']","" "kan1152965-152966","stream","","Roman Britain and the Origins of King Arthur","","","","The collapse of the Roman rule, arrival of barbarian raiders and settlers, and resistance to Germanic immigration serve as a backdrop to tantalizing mystery.

This lie enabled them to take possession of land occupied for thousands of years by Aboriginal people, yet the number of whites in Australia remained small until after the Second World War. In the post-war years, government sponsored immigration schemes brought many more Europeans to Australia. ""Populate or perish"" became the catch cry of those who sought to achieve their vision of a secure and booming Australia, a land which had plenty of room for everyone - provided they were white. After nearly fifty years of continuous growth, this documentary recalls the fear and insularity which shaped Australian population policy. Today many fears remain, but contemporary anxieties find expression in movements opposed to further population increase. Population growth takes the blame for the destruction of both the environment and quality of life. Yet there are those who celebrate a more crowded, bustling Australia, believing that growth is essential to a thriving and diverse society. They argue that the greatest threat to our natural, social and cultural landscapes is not the size or make up of our population, but the way we choose to live. Populate or Perish explores Australia's population debate, from Sydney and its suburbs to inland Tibooburra, from the populous Gold Coast to its near neighbour Byron Bay. What is revealed is not simply a question of numbers, but highly contested visions of Australia's future. A Film Australia National Interest Program.

(Made in LA)","","70 min","","Made in L.A. is an Emmy award-winning feature documentary that follows the remarkable story of three Latina immigrants working in Los Angeles garment sweatshops as they embark on a three-year odyssey to win basic labor protections from trendy clothing retailer Forever 21. In intimate observational style, Made in L.A. reveals the impact of the struggle on each woman's life as they are gradually transformed by the experience. Compelling, humorous, deeply human, Made in L.A. is a story about immigration, the power of unity, and the courage it takes to find your voice. Lupe Hernandez, a five-foot tall dynamo who learned survival skills at an early age, has been working in Los Angeles garment factories for over 15 years since she left Mexico City at age 17. Maura Colorado left her three children in the care of relatives in El Salvador while she sought work in L.A. to support them. She found that the low-paid work came with a high price - wretched conditions in the factories and an ""undocumented"" status that deprived her of seeing her children for over eighteen years. María Pineda came to Southern California from Mexico in hopes of a better life at 18, with an equally young husband. Twenty three years later, substandard working conditions, a meager salary and domestic abuse have left her struggling for her children's future and for her own human dignity. These three women, along with other immigrant workers, come together at L.A.'s Garment Worker Center to take a stand for their rights. Against all odds, these seemingly defenseless workers launch a very public challenge (a lawsuit and a boycott) to one of the city's flagship clothiers, calling attention to the dark side of low-wage labor north of the U.S.-Mexico border and revealing the social fault lines of the new globalisation. As seen through the eyes of María, Maura, and Lupe, the workers' struggle for basic economic justice and personal dignity yields hope and growth, but it is also fraught with disappointments and dangers. As the campaign drags on through three long years, meetings at the Garment Worker Center become more contentious and the women undergo dramatic moments of conflict and discouragement. But then the story takes a surprising turn, and the three women find the strength and resources to continue their struggle.

His goal was to obtain greater self-knowledge. Richard chose to live among the Crie and Inuit, and it was their vast open spaces that nurtured his need to be an artist. In 1927, he journeyed to Paris to study painting. There he encountered the Canadian painter Clarence Gagnon, who became his mentor. Upon his return to Canada in 1930, he resumed the life of a trapper in Manitoba. In 1938 he moved to Baie St-Paul (Quebec), where, until his death, he painted his colorful and luminous landscapes in a style characteristic of 1950's Quebec expressionism.","[u'Pelletier, Esther', u'Sauve, Linda', u'Richard, Ren\xe9', u'Rochelle, Joanne']","[u'Canada', u'United States', u'Swaziland']","[u'swiss', u'life', u'immigrants', u'landscapes']","[u'Documentary film']" "asp2787461-whiv","stream","","Free voice of labor :the Jewish anarchists","","55 min","","Focuses on the Jewish anarchists as disillusioned immigrants in American sweatshops.

Originally, influential liberals supported Dunkley's newspaper because they wanted reform but four years later a hardline crackdown saw his colleagues jailed and Dunkley hanging on by his finger nails. Set against the background of the country's first election in 20 years, DANCING WITH DICTATORS is an observational documentary about Burma from the inside.Those outside the country see the election as a sham - for many inside the country, including the paper's journalists, this is an opportunity they cannot afford to turn their back on - a chance for a step towards democracy no matter how limited. The film was made with considerable risk to the filmmakers and to the participants. The film-makers' presence during the election does not go unnoticed and four days after the vote they are deported, focussing attention on Dunkley. Shortly afterwards the hardliners strike again and Dunkley is arrested and charged with immigration offences linked to an alleged assault on a woman. He spends seven weeks in Burma's notorious Insein prison before being granted bail and appears in court over 20 times. Once free, he remains committed to regaining control of the newspaper and continuing the fight for freedom of speech in a country he has grown to love.

In Nicaragua several developers of luxurious hotels on beachfront property purchased four kilometers of land but are actually using over sixty kilometers. The local community is protesting but the national government is actively encouraging developers from abroad to build on the unpurchased land. Small farmers in Costa Rica complain that new resorts being built are environmentally unsound and using up the scarce water supply. The Dominican Republic has beachfront property that is being developed to resemble Cancun, Mexico. Many of the workers hired are Haitian immigrants who will work for lower wages than the Dominicans. People from this area sold their land cheaply and have now been forced into poverty. In Cancun, hotel workers are given 28-day contracts and no benefits; income from these lucrative resorts has not trickled down to the workers. Prof. Celina Izquierdo, Universidad del Caribe, Mexico, says that two distinct styles of life have developed there, that of the tourists and that of the locals.

It is the southernmost city in South America and reached its golden age between 1850 and 1914 due to its wool and fishing industries. Its imposing cathedral on the central square and its 19th century architecture reflect this boom time, and the memorial statue to Ferdinand Magellan recalls its history.

Situated on a narrow coastal plain with the Andes Mountains in the background, Puerto Montt is a tranquil city with an active fishing economy, and its German heritage is evident in its alpine houses with balconies. It is the gateway to Chile's Lake District, and the active volcano Orsano dominates the area. We visit Orsano National Park and Emerald Lake created by the volcano and then travel north to Valparaiso, the most cosmopolitan city of the three. Once a major stop for ships traveling between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans before the Panama Canal was built, Valparaiso remains an important seaport as well as cultural center for the region.

When Moises Serrano was just a baby, his parents risked everything to flee Mexico in search of the American dream. Forbidden to live and love as an undocumented gay man in the country he calls home, Serrano saw only one option: to fight for justice. Serrano is like the thousands of other young people growing up in the United States with steadfast dreams but all the cards stacked against them. The film chronicles Serrano's work as an activist traveling across his home state of North Carolina as a voice for his community, all while trying to forge a path for his own future. In the fall of 2016, presidential candidate Donald Trump is preaching damaging rhetoric towards immigrants and in North Carolina progress is unraveling as discriminatory laws continue to oppress the LGBTQ community.

The United Nations estimates that more than one million children are forced into sexual slavery each year. Some of them are trafficked into Australia. This powerful documentary follows former police officer turned private investigator, Chris Payne as he investigates this shocking crime. As a member of the Australian Federal Police, Payne headed Paper Tiger, a special operation aimed at combating sex trafficking in the mid 1990s. For a decade, he has been haunted by the case of ""Nikkie"", a young Thai girl found working in a Sydney brothel. Her rapid deportation stopped the police investigation in its tracks. Now Payne is back looking for answers...and Nikkie. How did she end up in that brothel? What happened to her afterwards? Payne follows the trail of evidence from Australia to Asia. Along the way, he meets the parents of Phuongtong (Noi) Simpalee, another Thai ""sex slave"" whose death in an immigration detention centre in Sydney made headlines. Through these stories and Payne's own experiences, Trafficked provides a disturbing insight into the international sex trade.

Shot in India and Australia over several years, the interactive documentary tracks a study abroad journey from Jalandhar, India to Melbourne, Australia. In 2009, before the international education crisis hits, we experience the phenomena of a bustling education-migration market extending from India to Australia, and interrogate the context that led to its rise. Louis Dai (co-director), as the son of Vietnamese boat people, provides a compelling narrative lead as he weaves the experiences of student-migrants into a larger Australian immigration story. What we hope to achieve through the telling of this story is the documentation of an avoidable tragedy that ruined the lives of thousands, undermined a largely successful industry and ruptured Australia's international reputation. It is our hope that in the future policies surrounding potential migrants and international students will have a greater humanist focus, in recognition of the enormous contribution that international education brings to the nation.

In a simple but highly suggestive manoeuvre, we hear Kafka's short story, ""The Building of the Great Wall of China"" being read over searing images of concrete walls, maps, barbed wire and armed guards, which chart the ominous security culture that aims to protect EU citizens from the perceived threat of mass immigration. These synchronized juxtapositions comprise a visual essay that reflects on concepts of power and exclusion, and map out some of the darkest undertones in the European project. With nationalism, isolationism, and authoritarianism on the rise, the ominous tones of The Great Wall recall dark episodes of the past, and suggest that physical walls are not likely to build real legitimacy for power.

More than five million people came to Australia, transforming it into the most multicultural country on earth. However, this was never meant to be. For much of the 20th century, successive Australian governments pursued a policy of deporting and barring entry to any race of people they considered undesirable. This was known as the White Australia policy. Admission Impossible is the true story of the behind-the-scenes political forces and propaganda campaigns that attempted to populate Australia with ""pure white"" migrants. The fear of being ""swamped"" with Asian immigrants kept this policy in place for over seven decades. This compelling story of how the shifts and upheavals in Asia, from colonial control to emerging new nations, caused great unease in Australia and strengthened the government's resolve to keep Australia ""white"" and ""European"".

In 2013, the Senate passed a comprehensive bill that included giving undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship, but it died in the House of Representatives. President Obama then took executive actions to protect some of them from deportation, but the courts blocked their implementation. So what should the United States do? Should it give undocumented immigrants a chance to earn citizenship through a process that would include paying a penalty and passing a security check?

At White Center Heights Elementary School, located just south of Seattle, Washington, the students speak twenty-seven different languages and come from fifty different countries. Eighty percent of the students speak no English at home and ninety percent qualify for free or reduced lunch. As schools grow more diverse across the country, White Center Heights appears more as a window into the future of education rather than an anomaly. In fact, what is more unique is the positive approach to the daily cultural challenges. Here, differences are embraced and conflicts resolved. In addition to tackling issues such as poverty, and language barriers, school staff are faced with many young children who have already experienced the trauma of war and loss. From countries such as Somalia, Iraq, Eritrea, Laos, Vietnam, and El Salvador, the student population is a reflection of the rise in immigration of refugee families from war-torn areas. Filmed with no outside narration, A Family Of Many Nations presents children, teachers, parents, local residents, and education experts talking openly about the school and home experience of students at White Center Heights. Emerging as the instrumental force behind the school's dynamic atmosphere is the principal, Greta Salmi; she demonstrates how to lead our students with empathy and intelligence in a complex new world. The microcosm of White Center Heights serves as an inspiration and an example for the kinds of opportunities which exist for developing successful, diverse communities in the 21st Century.","[u'Coughlin, Todd']","[u'Eritrea', u'Seattle', u'El Salvador', u'Washington', u'United Kingdom', u'United States', u'Vietnam', u'Somalia', u'Laos', u'Iraq']","[u'atmosphere', u'family', u'intelligence', u'schools', u'home', u'education', u'children', u'lead', u'addition', u'refugee families', u'population', u'war', u'families', u'students', u'immigration', u'communities', u'inspiration', u'empathy', u'language', u'refugee', u'face', u'english']","[u'Documentary films']" "kan1130798-130799","stream","","The Roosevelts, The Rising Road (1933-1939) : An Intimate History","","1 videos file 120 min","","Franklin Delano Roosevelt's 1933 presidential inauguration comes during the nation's worst economic crisis – the Great Depression. Banks have failed and savings accounts have been wiped out, so to explain the banking system and how it works, Franklin Roosevelt gives his first ""fireside chat"" to the American people. In fourteen and a half minutes he calms the public, and by the next Monday people begin to redeposit their money, thereby averting a crisis. This begins his first one hundred days in office, the most productive in presidential history. Fifteen major bills are passed, social programs are instituted, and the federal government – which up to this point has been a mostly passive observer of the people's problems – becomes an active force in trying to solve them. Eleanor Roosevelt takes to her new role as First Lady with energy and purpose. She holds weekly press conferences for female reporters only and embraces controversial social programs, such as a planned community for unemployed coal miners in West Virginia. And throughout her time in the White House, ER is an ardent supporter of civil rights and never allows the struggle against segregation or the outrage of lynching to be far from the president's attention. Many Americans know that Franklin Roosevelt has polio, but the extent of his disability is minimized, with his movements in and out of buildings, cars and crowds carefully controlled – and forbidden to be photographed or filmed. Whether they like him or not, Americans are fascinated by FDR and his family, but most are unaware of the complicated relationship between the President and his wife, or the domestic difficulties of their five children. And no one, not even Roosevelt's closest associates, are aware of the importance that his sixth cousin, Margaret ""Daisy"" Suckley, has in his life. Since first becoming reacquainted in the early 1920s, she has become not only an occasional companion but a trusted confidant, someone with whom he shares the burdens of his office and his disability in a way that he cannot do with anyone else, including his wife. By the spring of 1935, President Roosevelt launches three sweeping new social programs and presses Congress to act before they adjourn for the summer on an additional six more. Two of these are among the most important pieces of legislation in American history – the National Labor Relations Act, which guarantees labor's right to organize and bargain collectively; and the Social Security Act, which provides the elderly and the unemployed with old-age and survivor's insurance. But despite everything FDR has done, the United States is still in its fifth year of Depression and a group of presidential challengers begin to foster their own ideas on how to save the country's economy. After the Supreme Court declares the National Recovery Act unconstitutional, and with his landslide victory in the 1936 Presidential election, Franklin Roosevelt attempts to shore up his other New Deal reforms by devising a plan to ""pack"" the Supreme Court with judges sympathetic to his mission. The legislation is unpopular and is allowed to die, but alienates many of his Democratic allies. By 1937, FDR sees that the economy is steadily improving, and with the fear of inflation spurring him on, he decides to slash relief and public works funds so that the budget can be balanced. An economic recession follows, which some call the ""Roosevelt Recession."" During the 1930s, most Americans deplore the events unfolding in Europe under Hitler and Mussolini, but many do not want the United States to become involved. While an isolationist Congress shrinks the army, limits immigration and enacts the Neutrality Acts, FDR believes, as Theodore Roosevelt had, that the United States has an important role to play overseas. As Hitler's demands increase and the harrowing events of Kristallnacht in 1938 and the invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1939 take place, FDR begs Congress to allow arms sales to Britain and France, but the proposal is watered down in the House and never reaches the Senate floor. Even as the King and Queen of England visit America in 1939 to foster sympathy for Britain as it faces the growing threat from Nazi Germany, FDR still faces a country reluctant to ready itself for war.

Clínica de Migrantes counters the often dehumanizing and highly politicized rhetoric surrounding America's immigrant population, providing a compassionate profile of patients at Puentes, many of whom have left their families behind to come to America and perform physically exhausting labor for meager wages. Poverty-stricken and without medical insurance, the patients at Puentes often have nowhere else to turn for medical care. In addition to the patients, the film follows the tireless clinic staffers who treat around ten thousand patients each year with limited space and even less funding. As it plans a larger facility to accommodate its rapidly increasing demand, Puentes' executive director Dr. Steve Larson and his team must find a way to keep their practice running in spite of obstacles at every turn. Highlighting the admirable doctors, their patients and the bonds built between them, this inspirational, thought-provoking film forces us to consider whether America can continue to keep basic necessities from the estimated eleven million undocumented immigrants living within its borders.","","","[u'rhetoric', u'families', u'bonds', u'addition', u'light', u'immigrants', u'space', u'labor', u'running', u'patients', u'cost', u'filmmaker', u'population']","" "kan1322171-322172","stream","","Reunification","","86 minutes","","In this deeply personal award-winning documentary that gives an insider view on the contemporary immigrant experience, divorce and family psychology, and the personal filmmaking process, filmmaker Alvin Tsang reflects on his family's migration from Hong Kong to Los Angeles in the early 1980s - fraught with betrayal from his parents' divorce, economic strife and communication meltdown between parents and children. This poetic exploration of many unresolved years moves moodily across different channels and modes, bending into labor histories and Hong Kong's colonial trajectories.

For four years, we have followed the lives and progress of several artists from LA's Skid Row, reported to be the largest concentration of homeless people in America. We use several techniques to tell the stories including cinema verite, interviews and narration. Spontaneous moments from their lives, intimate interviews and their evolving artwork and life's progress are documented. We meet oil, acrylic and watercolor painters, charcoal, pen and crayon sketchers and collage makers. Some artists find their art supplies in garbage cans and dumpsters. They draw on old paper bags. Many have joined art workshops led by dedicated and remarkable artist/social workers and are given paint, canvases, frames, easels and the technical, creative and supportive guidance to create stunning, often therapeutic, works of art. Several of these art workshop members have shown - and sold - their work in downtown Los Angeles galleries. Their tight-knit Skid Row community nourishes their artistic abilities. Art changed their lives dramatically. One woman told us that coming to the workshop is the only reason she has for getting up in the morning. A directionless hustler has become a known, respected painter and employed community leader. A shy immigrant who creates, in classic primitive style, riotously colorful scenes from his childhood in a tiny Mexican village has suffered a major setback - he's been admitted to art school at University of California, Berkeley, and awarded a scholarship but can't attend due to his immigration status. One artist was a 12-year old runaway from an Indian reservation in 1941 and has been on the streets of Skid Row ever since. Art has given their lives meaning and a reason for existence. There are many stories among the artists of LA's Skid Row and unimagined talent to bring to the attention of a wide audience. By Letitia Schwartz and Judith Vogelsang. Reviewed by Robert A.

Each group has a different way of dancing and different reasons for going to the dance clubs. In scenes at the clubs these differences are apparent. However, salsa clubs are also important and popular places for interaction between Japanese and Latinos, places where learning between the two groups and a greater cultural appreciation of one another can occur.The video examines two types of salsa clubs in Japan. One draws more Japanese and the other draws more Latinos. The key difference between the two is the purpose for going. In the clubs that draw more Japanese, there is a greater focus on dancing well -- on looking good. Most of the clientele are students of salsa and some enter competitions.The clubs that draw a largely Latino crowd have more of a ""party"" atmosphere. Some of the clientele are great dancers, others not. Some even learn how to dance salsa in Japan, because it's not in fact a universally ""Latin"" dance. The main attraction of these ""parties"" is the chance to get together with other Latinos, blow off steam, and have a good time.""Salsa in Japan"" briefly recounts the history of salsa for those unfamiliar with the dance and examines the many connections between Latin America and Japan through interviews with people involved in the salsa world.This energetic, vibrant, and accessible video will reward viewing and stimulate discussion in any class dealing with issues of multiculturalism and immigration, and in a wide variety of courses in Japanese and Asian studies, Latin American studies, and cultural anthropology.

Modern transport and communications have resulted in a world that is wealthier, healthier, more mobile and better informed than ever before. Throughout history new trade routes have proved to be double-edged swords, opening the way to wealth as well as terrible dangers - among them revolutionary ideas and terrifying pandemics. In their quest for silver, the Romans lay down roads across Britain. They have built a giant empire, spanning three continents, building roads to facilitate troop movements, tax collection and, crucially, trade. This vast road network means travel in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa is safe for the first time. The Christian messenger Paul uses Rome's roads to carry the message of a sworn enemy of the Roman state. He's spreading the word of a religious rebel, Jesus Christ. The Christians take advantage of Rome's infrastructure to spread their message. But another Roman trade route allows a far more sinister threat to travel back: disease. Around 300AD Roman explorers reach the capital of China. Rome's desire for silk has linked East and West for the first time. For over a thousand years after the Romans visited China, the world is struck by wave-upon-wave of pandemics. Smallpox, plague, measles all spread, killing millions. In the Age of Discovery, Europeans travel to the New World carrying guns and something even more powerful: a deadly cocktail of diseases, to which they themselves are immune. Spanish soldiers under the command of Hernan Cortes enter the Aztec capital Tenochtitlan. They unwittingly transmit smallpox and flu to their hosts. 95% of them die. The great Aztec and Inca empires collapse, and Europeans take control of the Americas and their wealth. European settlers in the New World establish giant plantations farming sugar, cotton and tobacco. But the Europeans diseases have decimated the Native American population. There are not enough people to work the land. The settlers' solution is to import slave labour. But the North and South clash over the freeing of slaves. Slavery ends up tearing North America apart. It leads to The American Civil War. However, global trading networks allow millions of immigrants from across the world to pour into America. This hungry new workforce turns America into a superpower. The age of mass migration has begun. It creates new connections, and a demand for fast, mass travel to and from all parts of the globe.","[u'Meyers, Eric']","[u'Romania', u'United States', u'Inca', u'Roman', u'Rome', u'China', u'Spain']","[u'work', u'modern', u'africa', u'trade', u'migration', u'spanish', u'roads', u'soldiers', u'smallpox', u'cotton', u'wealth', u'travel', u'capital', u'farming', u'european', u'east and west', u'desire', u'trade routes', u'diseases', u'measles', u'plantations', u'silk', u'explorers', u'christians', u'building', u'age', u'immigrants', u'slavery', u'american', u'history']","[u'Nonfiction television programs', u'Documentary television programs']" "kan1121501-121502","stream","","Beyond Borders","","","","Beyond Borders moves past the headlines and takes an in-depth look at the hot-button issues of legal and illegal immigration.

Winner, Best Documentary, Hollywood Black Film Festival. Is there a politics of knowledge? Who controls what knowledge is produced and how it will be used? Is there ""objective"" scholarship and, if so, how does it become politicized? These questions are examined through this groundbreaking film on the life and career of Melville J. Herskovits (1895-1963), the pioneering American anthropologist of African Studies and one of the most controversial intellectuals of the 20th century. How did this son of Jewish immigrants come to play such a decisive role in the shaping of modern African American and African identities? Herskovits emerges as an iconic figure in on-going debates in the social sciences over the ethics of representation and the right of a people to represent themselves. This quick-paced, carefully researched documentary traces Herskovits' development as a scholar to the shared African American and Jewish experiences of exile, exclusion and political oppression. Faced with resurgent racism and persistent discrimination in the early 20th century, black and Jewish intellectuals grappled with a common question: could they retain their distinct ethnic identities and still participate as equals in American life? Prominent scholars like Princeton philosopher, K. Anthony Appiah, and Columbia University historian, Mae Ngai, explore this paradox not only in historical and contemporary terms, but through their own experiences as people of color. Lee D. Baker, a cultural anthropologist at Duke University, locates Herskovits at the heart of a transformation in anthropology which continues to this day. 19th Century anthropology grew out of European colonialism and too often provided a pseudo-scientific justification for its subjugation of non-Western people. Physical anthropologists drew specious correlations between anatomical features and supposed behavioral traits of the various ""races."" By the time Herskovits arrived at Columbia University, the Jewish anthropologist, Franz Boas, was revolutionizing the discipline. Boaz used impeccable research to demonstrate that different didn't mean inferior. Herskovits became a vigorous advocate for ""cultural relativism,"" the idea that cultures should be understood from the inside, on their own terms, not the anthropologist's. This provided strong academic backing for the anti-colonial and anti-racist movements of the day and laid the groundwork for today's critical cultural theory. In the late 1920's, Herskovits turned his attention to Africa at a time when other white scholars insisted there was nothing to learn there. During field work in Benin, Surinam and Trinidad, he shot thousands of feet of film (some shown in this documentary) revealing undeniable similarities between African and New World planting techniques, dance, music, even everyday gestures. Harvard historian and co-producer, Vincent Brown, explains how this proof of cultural retention across the African Diaspora refuted the common wisdom that all ties to Africa had been lost in the traumatic rupture of the Middle Passage. Johnnetta Cole, President Emerita of Spelman and Bennett Colleges, current Director of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African Art and an early student of Herskovits, recalls how empowered she felt by Herskovits' ""discoveries,"" even though black scholars had been writing about these same ideas for decades. But a number of African American intellectuals like sociologist E. Franklin Frazier openly attacked Herskovits' contentions. They worried if black Americans were seen as distinctively ""different"" it could provide a further rationale for the segregationist policies they were fighting. For example, if, black, female-headed households were a continuation of African matriarchal tradition, as Herskovits contended, not the result of persistent discrimination and poverty, the struggle for progressive social reforms might be undermined. North Carolina Central University historian, Jerry Gershenhorn, author of Melville J. Herskovits and the Racial Politics of Knowledge, explains that Herskovits, despite his left-wing sympathies, insisted scholarship should be ""objective"" and apolitical. He even secretly sabotaged W.E.B. DuBois' life-long project, the Encyclopedia Africana, on the grounds that it would be propagandistic. The film reveals, however, that American anthropology was often entangled with political power. During the Cold War, wealthy foundations and government agencies funded the development of ""area studies"" to support ""anti-insurgency"" and neo-colonial ""nation-building"" strategies in the Third World. In 1948, Herskovits established the African Studies Center at Northwestern, the first at an American university. And he became openly political, campaigning to head the State Department's Bureau of African Affairs. But he was denied a security clearance on the grounds of membership in 17 ""communist front organizations"" as defined by the House Un-American Activities Committee. By the end of his life, Herskovits' own research had become a tool for social movements he could not have anticipated-and might not have welcomed. His daughter, historian Jean Herskovits Corry, recalls how his seminal work, The Myth of the Negro Past, was embraced by the Black Panther Party and Black Nationalist students of the '60s. Ironically, Herskovits may not have understood the scope of his own influence. When he asked the great Martinican poet and philosopher, Aimeé Césaire, the meaning of negritude, the world-wide political-literary movement known as the ""Great Black"" Césaire replied: ""You yourself are one of the fathers of negritude. Read The Myth of The Negro Past!"" The film raises unsettling questions, asking who has the authority to define a culture, especially if people from that culture are denied the opportunity to engage in the scholarly discourse of defining themselves. Vincent Brown provocatively sums up Herskovits as ""the Elvis of anthropology,"" a man who appropriated African culture, but simultaneously mainstreamed its study into the American academe and popular consciousness. Herskovits at the Heart of Blackness will challenge students to think of ""knowledge"" as a socio-political construct, shaped by the implicit values and underlying power dynamics of the society in which it is produced. It calls on each viewer to ask ""Who controls my cultural identity?"" As a result, the film promises to become a core text in Introductory Anthropology, Cultural Anthropology, Sociology of Knowledge, African Studies, African American Studies, and Race Relations classes.","[u'Cole, Johnnetta', u'Boas, Franz', u'Baker, Lee D.', u'Ngai, Mae', u'Appiah, K.

Their stories are set in the context of a city-wide school reform and community organizing movement in Oakland, California. The small-schools movement began as an effort to improve education in Oakland's flatlands, where the majority of immigrants live, by creating new small autonomous schools and involving parents and community members as leaders in reform. The video explores parent participation in the reform through the eyes of the five parent researchers, and reveals unexpected lessons about the barriers to community participation. The video also chronicles the personal transformation of each of the mothers as they evolved into vocal advocates and skilled educational researchers, and the impact that their research had on the new small school. The video thus tells two intersecting stories as one: the story of the parent researchers in Madres Unidas, and the story of the new small school they helped found. In elaborating on the process undertaken by the women, the video shows how the experience of engaging in research was tremendously empowering and transforming for them. The video itself not only generates new knowledge about school reform, but the process of making it also leaves a group of Latina mothers with new powers to act. In the end, the video is a strong testament to the value of participatory research as an alternative method that expands the possibilities for democratic participation and social change. 'Madres Unidas'� will generate discussion in a variety of courses in sociology, ethnic studies, social psychology, education, Hispanic-American studies, cultural anthropology, and women's studies.

Using rare archival footage and re-creations based on meticulous research, the dramatised documentary takes viewers into the corridors of power to show how Labor Party leader Ben Chifley took on and defeated the growing forces of communism in Australia. The film examines the complex issues that the conflict raised and introduces the major players in the dispute, including Attorney-General Evatt, Immigration Minister Arthur Calwell, Chifley's ""spin doctor"" Lloyd Ross and his brother Edgar Ross, a Communist Party executive and driving force behind the strike. It portrays a fascinating era of Australian history rarely seen on screen. A former train driver from Bathurst, Chifley was a working-class hero, a Labor Party icon and ""man of the people"". But his actions flew in the face of Labor values and tradition when he believed it was in the interests of post-war Australia. Chifley introduced draconian laws to prevent unions accessing funds to support the strike and sent in the army to replace striking miners""""so defeating the Communist Party leadership that controlled the militant union. It was a battle he was determined to fight and win in the interests of the nation, despite knowing it would probably cost him government. A Screen Australia Making History production.

Besides the standard curriculum, much of their time is spent mastering the new language and exploring their relationship to their new society and to one another. The teachers and the principal are sensitive to the conflicts students face between clinging to their cultural roots and assimilating. Although students often gravitate to others from a similar culture, they learn at the school to respect one another's differences. School is a very open environment, with free-wheeling discussions on all aspects of their lives. Innovative teaching methods are encouraged. Discovering that standard English instruction (ESL) bored the kids, a teacher turned the class into a comparative linguistics lab. He had them examine the structure of their own languages, using that as a base to learn the new language.

However, this optimism quickly faded as thousands of ex-servicemen and unskilled civilians swelled the queues of Britain's Labour Exchanges to form part of a growing underclass of unemployed. When films and glossy brochures appeared at labour exchanges promising a new life, a new start, and ""your own dairy farm in Australia"", unsuspecting Britons scrambled to be on the next boat bound for ""paradise"". They travelled to the other side of the world to Western Australia under a hastily conceived immigration program known as the Group Settlement Scheme. The venture was a joint initiative of the British and Western Australian governments designed to attract a much needed labour force to develop the South West region of Australia, while at the same time easing a pressing unemployment problem in Britain. But the new residents were destined for disappointment. Many settlements were doomed to fail from the start. The soil was frequently too poor to grow suitable pastures, cattle died from wasting disease and settlers faced malnutrition and increasing bad debts, forcing many to walk off their land. Most wanted to return home but few had the money to do so. Those who stayed were determined to survive. Despite the hardships, they gradually cleared the bush and turned it into pasture, developing the South West into the ""land of milk and honey"" it is today. Group Settlement is a little-known episode in Australia's history. No Milk No Honey brings this history to life through the reminiscences of those who struggled and eventually prospered in their new land.

Although the United States generally supported Salvadoran president Jose Napoleon Duarte, the two countries disagreed over immigration reform. In 1987, the U.S. government tightened immigration controls, calling for the deportation of illegal immigrants who had entered the country since 1982. This would have overloaded the Salvadoran infrastructure and would have also greatly decreased the amount of money coming into the country from family members abroad.

The Caretaker is a short film about the relationship between an immigrant caretaker and an elderly woman in the last months of her life. Joesy, a Fijian immigrant, works long hours providing live-in care for 95-year-old Haru Tsurumoto. Through intimate and quiet scenes, we explore Joesy's complex relationship with Haru. The two respect one another, because at different times, both have felt like outsiders in the U.S. - Joesy as an undocumented immigrant who fears she could be sent back to Fiji, and Haru as a Japanese American who was sent to the internment camps during World War II. The Mayor is an intimate portrait of a small-town Southern Republican Mayor and his profound and unexpected connection to a mixed-status family of Mexican immigrants. Paul Bridges, the conservative Republican Mayor of Uvalda, Georgia, speaks fluent Spanish and is integrally connected to the Latino immigrant community in his town. Bridges has been a major part of the Hernandez family's life for over a decade and many of the members of the family are undocumented. After the State of Georgia adopts harsh anti-immigrant laws that make it a criminal act to drive or house undocumented people, Mayor Bridges stands up for his community and the Hernandez family both at home, and on the National stage.","[u'Rigby, Theo', u'McLean, Kate']","[u'United States', u'Georgia', u'Fiji', u'Spain', u'Mexico']","[u'bridges', u'life', u'world war', u'mexican', u'family', u'latino', u'portraits', u'back', u'elderly', u'japanese', u'short films', u'american', u'immigration', u'spanish', u'films', u'respect', u'camps', u'criminal', u'war', u'generations']","[u'Documentary films']" "asp3644103-marc","stream","","POV.

Latino Americans is driven by the human dramas of individuals' struggles and triumphs, successes and disappointments, featuring interviews with close to 100 Latinos from the worlds of politics, business, military, academia, literature, and pop culture, as well as deeply personal portraits of Latinos who lived through key chapters in American history.

Standing in opposition to the vigilantes are humanitarians, organized to prevent migrant deaths. Confronting the growing crisis, they too find themselves on the wrong side of the law.

Broome attracted Japanese, Malay and Filipinos to work in pearling and shipping Darwin drew Timorese, Pacific Islanders and Chinese to the gold fields and market gardening Cairns attracted Chinese and Islanders (some indentured) who established farms and businesses In 1901 the southern founding fathers of Federation introduced legislation to discourage mixed race liaisons, and deport Asians and Melanesians with the Immigration Restriction Act and Pacific Islanders Labour Act. Early entrepreneurial spirit was replaced by Aboriginal missions and bureaucracies. The 'white Australia' policy was born and lasted 70 years, but the north found ways to keep their cultures alive.

Under the Hammer follows the lives of Sydney buyers, sellers and real estate agents from week to week over an extended period of time. The stories unfold through observational sequences and interviews with the main players at critical points in the drama. What motivates the real estate agents in matching buyers and sellers? In Under the Hammer, the agents, often seen as mysterious and inaccessible, allow us to watch as they candidly discuss and apply their tricks of the trade. We see the tension and manipulation involved in closing the deal, as well as the highly-sophisticated techniques used in selling by auction. For buyers and sellers the auction system is often a perilous journey into uncharted waters. For them, there's more than bricks and mortar at stake-it's their dreams, their memories and the single biggest investment of their lives. Under the Hammer is there with them at the dinner table, at the open house, at the meeting with the agent and of course just prior to, during, and after the auction. This is a series which captures not only intimate emotional moments but the displays of bravado, happiness, shock and disappointment as the hammer goes down.

Kennedy as the country's first (and so far, only) non-Protestant, non-Anglo Saxon president. The series, filmed in both Ireland and America, follows the rise of Irish-American political machines in cities like New York, Boston, Kansas City and Chicago and features contributions from Pulitzer Prize winning authors such as Robert Caro and Jack Beatty.

The three-part series tell the story of six unique and powerful Irish-American politicians whose ancestors all came to America as impoverished Irish immigrants. The Irish, by the very process of coming to America, changed the country. They were the first immigrant group in the US who seized upon politics as a means of making a living and they left a permanent mark on the American political landscape which stills resonates today. The series opens in New York in the mid 1800s with the story of Richard 'Boss' Croker, it continues in New York with the story of Alfred E. Smith. The series also covers the Kansas Machine with the story of 'Boss' Tom Pendergast before moving on to Boston with James Michael Curley, to Chicago with the Major Richard J. Daley Story and ending with the John F.

But those causes are not what we might expect. While we pour more and more money into drugs, dietary supplements and new medical technologies, Unnatural causes crisscrosses the country investigating the findings that are shaking up conventional understanding of what really makes us healthy or sick. This is a story that implicates us all. We're spending Two trillion dollars a year and rising on healthcare, more than twice per person than the average industrialized nation. Yet American life expectancy ranks 29th in the world, behind Costa Rica. Infant mortality? Cypress, Slovenia and Malta do better. One third of Americans are obese. Chronic illness now costs American businesses more than One trillion dollars a year in lost productivity. It turns out there's much more to our health than bad habits, healthcare or unlucky genes. The social conditions in which we are born, live and work profoundly affect our well-being and longevity. Unnatural causes is a medical detective story out to solve the mystery of what's stalking and killing us before our time, especially those of us who are less affluent and darker-skinned. But its investigators keep peeling back the onion, broadening their inquiry beyond the immediate, physical causes of death to the deeper, underlying causes that lurk in our neighborhoods, our jobs and even back in history. The perpetrators, of course, aren't individuals but rather societal and institutional forces. And theirs are not impulsive crimes of passion. These are slow deaths the result of a lifetime of grinding wear and tear, thwarted ambition, segregation and neglect. But this is also a story of hope and possibility, of communities organizing to gain control over their destinies and their health. The good news is that if bad health comes from policy decisions that we as a society have made, then we can make other decisions. Some countries already have, and they are living longer, fuller lives as a result.;Video 1. When the bough breaks: The number of infants who die before their first birthday is much higher in the U.S. than in other countries. And for African Americans the rate is nearly twice as high as for white Americans. Even well-educated Black women have birth outcomes worse than white women who haven't finished high school. Why?.;Video 2. Place matters: Why is your street address such a good predictor of your health? Latino and Southeast Asian immigrants like Gwai Boonkeut have been moving into long-neglected urban neighborhoods such as those in Richmond, California, a predominantly Black city in the San Francisco Bay Area. Segregation and lack of access to jobs, nutritious foods, and safe, affordable housing have been harmful to the health of long-time African American residents, and now the newcomers health is suffering too.;Video 3.

They have lower rates of death, heart disease, cancer, and other illnesses, despite being less educated, earning less and having the stress of adapting to a new country and a new language.

In What is an American?, Simon Schama looks at the bitter conflict over immigration in American history. Who should be allowed to enter America and call themselves an American has always been one of the nation's most divisive issues - and it continues to be so at this election. He traces the roots of this conflict to the founding of America. The early settlers were themselves immigrants but they saw America as fundamentally a white and Protestant nation. Simon looks at the key events that challenged this view: the annexation of parts of Mexico in 1848 that made 100,000 non-whites American citizens, the immigration and subsequent expulsion of the Chinese in the late 19th century, and the massive immigration from Eastern Europe during the industrialisation of the Twenties. Each time there have been those who have insisted America must stay white if it is to stay true to itself, and each time they have been defeated by the sheer force of history. John F Kennedy defined America as a Nation of Immigrants in 1964 and Simon argues that the candidacy of Barack Obama represents the final triumph of the vision of America as a multi-ethnic nation.
