Season 5, Episode 27: Sumo East and West

5 May 2003
"Sumo East and West" is a feature documentary about Americans in the ancient Japanese sport of sumo wrestling. Sumo is not only the national sport of Japan but a centuries-old cultural treasure that is literally part of the Shinto religion. Yet this highly traditional world is facing profound changes due to the postwar influx of foreign images and ideas in Japanese culture. At the same time other changes in sumo are being prompted by its growing popularity in the West, where its adherents are lobbying for sumo's inclusion in the Olympic Games even as other promoters are arranging amateur sumo tournaments in venues like Las Vegas casinos - tournaments that not surprisingly bear little resemblance to the sport's Japanese forebear. "Sumo East and West" takes us into this world through the story of Wayne Vierra of Hawaii, aka Kamakiiwa, a former professional sumo wrestler in Japan whose pro career was cut short by injury, but who rebounded to become a champion in the growing world of amateur sumo. The film also features the Hawaii-born superstars of professional sumo: Konishiki, Jesse "Takamiyama" Kuhaulua, and Akebono (the first non-Japanese to reach the exalted rank of yokozuna, or grand champion) .

11 January 2005
The remarkable teacher Albert Cullum broke the mold for the boring, uninspiring public school teachers in the 1950s and 60s. This film depicts how he inspired his students of all ages through movement and imagination, and how he challenged them to want to learn more through acting in theatrical productions of the classics. The productions were unconventional by every school standard, but gained recognition throughout the state for being groundbreaking and inspiring.

Season 7, Episode 14: July '64

14 February 2006
In the 1950s and 1960s, Rochester, New York became known as a successful city with a thriving business community and few problems. On the other hand, large numbers of poor black southerners had been moving to the city in the recent years. Those black citizens were largely denied the good jobs at local factories. These underprivileged citizens also felt themselves the victims of excessive police scrutiny, as well as police brutality. On a summer night in July 1964, there were altercations between the police and African-American Rochesterians. Those events escalated into riots. Over several nights, Rochester stores were looted and the streets were scenes of chaos and violence. Governor Nelson Rockefeller called out the National Guard to help the police keep order.

Season 8, Episode 18: Stolen

30 January 2005
In March of 1990, two thieves dressed as Boston police officers gained entrance to the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum in Boston Massachusetts and successfully executed the largest art heist in modern history. Among the thirteen priceless works stolen was Vermeer's "The Concert" one of only 35 of the masters surviving works. Not a single one of the works has been recovered. STOLEN is a full exploration of the Gardner theft, and the fascinating, disparate characters involved: from the 19th century Grand dame Isabella Gardner to a private detective obsessed with finding the art to a terrorist organization with a penchant for stealing Vermeers.

Season 8, Episode 27: La Lupe: Queen of Latin Soul

2 March 2007
A born rebel and innovator, Lupe Yoli aka La Lupe or La Yiyiyi was renowned for her emotional performances. Her renditions of classics such as "My Way," "Fever" and "Going Out of My Head" were known worldwide. But beyond her musicianship, celebrity and scandal, Lupe Yoli was also a single mother of two, a survivor of domestic abuse, a Santera who later became a Christian Evangelist speaker. Shot in New York City, Miami, La Habana and San Juan, this documentary evokes two groundbreaking cultural periods through rare archival footage -- pre-Revolutionary 1950's La Habana and the burgeoning Latin music scene in New York City in the 1960's and 1970's. The documentary begins with her funeral in 1992, attended by fans, family and the whole of New York's Latino music aristocracy and follows her from poverty to celebrity and back again. La Lupe Queen of Latin Soul tells La Lupe's story through character driven interviews in first person anecdotes, in an oral history much like those found in a folk ballad or a bolero. She was born in a small rural town in Cuba in 1936, one that La Lupe herself loved to describe as "so poor that no one knew it existed until I got famous". Her older sister Norma Yoli describes her as "just another black girl from Santiago", one who loved to imitating the singers she heard on the radio. One of these was Olga Guillot, Cuba's reigning bolero singer - our Latin Frank Sinatra. When the rebellious teenage Lupe wins a radio contest, much like our present day's American Idol, she gets to meet Olga Guillot in La Habana and to sing on the radio. By 1957 La Lupe was the rage in the thriving competitive nightlife in La Habana. Rare archival footage showcases Lupe's peers - Perez Prado, Beni More with Mongo Santamaria, a young Celia Cruz. Helio Orovio, the noted Cuban musicologists describes La Habana in the late 50's as having the most "intense" nightlife in the midst of the onset of Cuba's revolution. Lupe's gay following adores her, and the avant-garde follows. A newspaper headline appears: "La Lupe Divides Cuba in Two". While her inimitable style is described as one befitting the revolutionary times, the headline was a prescient one: like many artists at the time, she leaves Cuba: "there was no room in Cuba for me and the revolution." La Lupe arrives penniless in New York City in 1962. She befriends the world-renowned Afro-Cuban percussionist Mongo Santamaria, and records with him. Mongo proudly recalls how he introduced La Lupe to "an American" jazz audience and how Tito Puente stole La Lupe from his band once she became the "hottest thing". La Lupe and Tito Puente went on to record a mayor hit in 1964, a Latin classic: "Que Te Pedi" (What Did I Ask of You). Fred Weinberg, La Lupe's favorite recording engineer recalls their collaboration and the early recording sessions. "She was like a hurricane coming in" with Tito urging him to just "start recording". For the next four years they recorded classics and toured the Latin music circuit at the time, in the US, Venezuela, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Panama and Spain. Ralph Mercado the Latin music impresario (who was also Tito Puente and Celia Cruz's manager) recounts their falling out with the hit "Oriente" where La Lupe herself sings: "Tito Puente kicked me out". La Lupe had gotten too big and Tito had begun to record with Celia Cruz. Striking out on her own in 1968 La Lupe appears on English language television shows. In a present day interview of Dick Cavett, her appearance on his show is put into context for an audience watching in 1973 - though her performance remains thoroughly contemporary. Johnny Pacheco the composer, arranger and music producer recounts the birth of Fania records and the origins of "salsa", the new Latin music sensation. By 1975 La Lupe's career is on the decline while Fania has a new rising star -- Celia Cruz. By 1985 Lupe Yoli has rebounded from a descent into homelessness. Having taken on the preacher's pulpit she recounts this period in her evangelical testimonials. Ahead of her time and often described as the first performance artist and a long-time gay icon, La Lupe's story is universal in its appeal; with the current boom in Latin pop music, it is also timely in trying to discover who Lupe was. The documentary is also a collective portrait of mid-20th century Latin musical history.

Season 9, Episode 24: The Cool School

10 June 2008
The Cool School is an object lesson in how to build an art scene from scratch and what to avoid in the process. The film focuses on the seminal Ferus Gallery, which groomed the LA art scene from a loose band of idealistic beatniks into a coterie of competitive, often brilliant artists, including Ed Kienholz, Ed Ruscha, Craig Kauffman, Wallace Berman, Ed Moses and Robert Irwin. The Ferus also served as launching point for New York imports, Andy Warhol (hosting his first Soup Can show), Jasper Johns and Roy Lichtenstein as well as leading to the first Pop Art show and Marcel Duchamp's first retrospective. What was lost and gained is tied up in a complex web of egos, passions, money, and art. This is how L.A. came of age.

25 November 2008
The Atom Smashers chronicles the search for the Higgs boson: a yet-undiscovered subatomic particle that could explain how matter, and therefore life, can exist. To find this "god particle," top physicists at Fermilab use the Tevatron, a four-mile-long, forty-year-old particle accelerator buried beneath the Illinois prairie. However, a new, more powerful accelerator at Europe's CERN laboratory looms on the horizon... Part science, part international competition, and part human drama, The Atom Smashers watches its captivating characters in and out of the laboratory as they race along the intersections of politics, culture, and the possibility of the discovery of a lifetime.

Season 10, Episode 9: Grey Gardens: From East Hampton to Broadway

18 October 2007
This 50-minute documentary unfolds the creative journey of Albert Maysles' cult classic, GREY GARDENS - from non-fiction film to spectacularly mounted Broadway musical. Captured in the 1975 Maysles film, GREY GARDENS, the indomitable Edith Beale and her daughter Edie, aunt and cousin to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, were revealed to be a most unique and engaging mother daughter act - inhabiting a folie à deux built upon powerful interdependence, quirky eccentricity, courage, devotion and love. Their essence and their story soon catapulted them to cult icon status, an ironic counterpoint to Mrs. Onassis' own such status, and culminating in the ultimate homage: being portrayed on the Broadway stage. The documentary will feature behind-the-scenes footage of the show's rehearsals, performance and insightful interviews with the creators and cast, as well as a revealing interview with Albert Maysles and relevant insights from Beale authorities, devotees, cultural commentators, audience and fans.

21 April 2014
Story of the 2 legendary recording studios in the Muscle Shoals area, on the banks of the Tennessee River. Producer Rick Hall overcame poverty and tragedy to create FAME Studios, where blacks and whites in segregated 1960s Alabama produced some of the most soulful music ever. The best music of Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett and many others was recorded there, backed by the mostly-white Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, aka The Swampers. When psychedelia turned white audiences away from soul music in 1969, The Swampers moved nearby, starting Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, at 3614 Jackson Highway, where Southern rock sprang after studio guitarist Duane Allman convinced Pickett to record "Hey Jude." Pilgrims to the banks of the "singing river," such as the Rolling Stones and Alicia Keys, help tell the inspirational story of Hall and the Swampers.

My Life... Disoriented

19 October 2006
Life gets turned upside down for Kimberee and Aimee Fung when their father decides to leave his well-paying corporate executive job in San Francisco and move the family to Bakersfield to live with their grandparents and help out with the family business, a massage parlor called "Touch of the Orient." If the social pressure of starting a new high school in the middle of the school year wasn't enough, Kimberlee and Aimee are only two of a handful of Asian American kids at North High. They are constantly challenged by having to make choices that ultimately affect how their peers perceive them as they try to find acceptance.

The New Americans

29 March 2004
The New Americans follows four years in the lives of a diverse group of contemporary immigrants and refugees as they journey to start new lives in America. The detailed portraits--woven together in the seven-hour miniseries-- present a kaleidoscopic picture of immigrant life and a personal view of the new America. We follow an Indian couple to Silicon Valley through the dot-com boom and bust. A Mexican meatpacker struggles to reunite his family in rural Kansas. Two families of Nigerian refugees (including the sister of slain Ogoni activist, Ken Saro-Wiwa) escape government persecution. Two Los Angeles Dodgers prospects follow their big dreams of escaping the barrios of the Dominican Republic. A Palestinian woman who marries into a new life in Chicago only to discover in the wake of September 11, she cannot leave behind the pain of her homeland's conflict.
