  • 2:00 am
    Filipino American Lives [#101] Harana: The Search for the Lost Art of Serenade Upon his father's death, Florante, a classically trained guitarist returns to the Philippines after 12 years of absence. During his stay, he rediscovers the music of harana - a long forgotten tradition of Filipino serenading when men sang under the window at night to fearlessly declare their love for a woman.
    Intent on unearthing these unheralded songs, Florante travels to the remote provinces where he discovers three of the last surviving practitioners - a farmer, a fisherman and a tricycle driver. Astounded by their golden voices, Florante asks them to travel with him to perform and record these unknown songs. During their travels, the haranistas meet Brian, a shy young man who for years has been secretly in love with a schoolmate. The haranistas, who have not serenaded in the last 30 years, offered their services to serenade Brian's object of affection, resulting in one of the most tender moments of genuine harana captiured on film.
    Word soon spread around Manila of leatherly faced men whose style of untrained but sincere and expressive singing touch the hearts everywhere they performed, culminating in a series of triumphant live performances - from the small village to prestigious concert halls to recording the first authentic harana album in the last fifty years. But the question remains - can harana be restored to its former glory or is it doomed to vanish silently into the night forever?

  • 6:00 am
    Global Voices [#714] Here Comes Uncle Joe He is not their uncle, and his name is not Joe. But to the old ladies of An-dong, a rural community in southeastern Korea, Uncle Joe is almost the only contact they have with the modern world. As the young leave these rural areas to acquire higher education and to find high salary jobs in the cities, there are no services or people to support old people. In this situation, Uncle Joe becomes the only man for the old.
    However, his road taken isn't always happy. Because of their advanced years, Joe often encounters his old customer-friends' misery and death. Moreover, as he reflects on his life, he faces his inner conflict and shame. In this film, we see how Uncle Joe serves these communities with humor and attention, how love and friendship are infused in life, and how he overcomes his conflicts with his friends.

  • 7:00 am
    Doc World [#113] One Child The 2008 Sichuan earthquake, China's deadliest disaster in three decades, killed 90,000 people, including more than 5,000 children. Losing a child is an immeasurable tragedy for parents anywhere, but in China the effect is compounded by the one-child policy. This means that if you lose your child, you're often losing your one and only child - and with it the totality of your life's emotional investment. In response to the earthquake, China's government made an exception for those who lost their only child to conceive another. One Child follows the journey of these three families as they try to restore a sense of normalcy and struggle to move past the loss of their children. duration 56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
