Thursday

Pictured: program title graphic Aleut Story
In 1942, as World War II reached Alaska, Aleut Americans were transferred to government camps 1,500 miles away, where an estimated 10 percent perished. As they prayed for deliverance, "friendly forces" looted their homes and churches in the Aleutian and Pribilof islands. The surviving Aleuts eventually joined Japanese Americans in seeking wartime reparations from the federal government. Filmed on location in Alaska and Washington, D.C., this poignant, richly textured film contains rare archival images and compelling interviews with Aleut internment survivors - many of whom are speaking out for the first time in more than 60 years.

Pictured: General William Westmoreland and President Lyndon B. Johnson. April 4, 1968. The Vietnam War
“This Is What We Do (July 1967-December 1967)”

Ken Burns and Lynn Novick tell the epic story of the war as it’s never before been told on film. The 10-part series features testimony from nearly 80 witnesses, American and Vietnamese, bringing the war and its chaotic epoch viscerally to life. Tonight: Enemy body counts and American casualties mount as GIs chase an elusive foe and face deadly ambushes and artillery. While Hanoi lays plans for a massive surprise offensive, the Johnson Administration reassures the public that victory is in sight.

Friday

Pictured: Audience of inmates. Inside Peace
Inmates doing hard time in a Texas jail enroll in a Peace Class and struggle to discover their humanity and beat the odds as they put their lives back together from the inside out. Over the course of fours years, we follow three men who gradually begin to change the way they see themselves and their place in the world. Their road becomes even more treacherous when they leave prison and face a world that doesn’t always say “Welcome home.”

Pictured: Program title graphic with library building. Up From Ashes
What goes into building a Library? Concerned with sustainability, the developers of the Traverwood Branch of the Ann Arbor District Library took a unique approach to the building process by harvesting hundreds of ash trees devastated by the Emerald Ash Borer and reusing the trees in the construction of the building. 'Up From Ashes,' produced by KDN Films in Madison Heights, Michigan, captures each step of the Traverwood Branch construction process, a process that combined both primitive and modern construction methods.
