Tonight: 11 DOCUMENTARY FILMS / AMERICA AT A CROSSROADS

The following is a PBS schedule with links that documentary filmmakers, in particular, may be interested in noting for April viewing…..

Robert MacNeil is Host of AMERICA AT A CROSSROADS/Premiering April 15 to 20, 2007

quote
“*America at a Crossroads is a major public television event premiering on PBS in April 2007 that explores the challenges confronting the post 9/11 world, including the war on terrorism; the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan; the experience of American troops serving abroad; the struggle for balance within the Muslim world; and global perspectives on America’s role overseas.

Each night, series host Robert MacNeil will provide context to the compelling stories and provocative points of view to be shown throughout the week. The series of 11 independently produced documentaries is scheduled to launch on Sunday, April 15 and will run nightly through Friday, April 20, 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. (ET). Additional films will air as specials following the premiere.

Aimed at creating a national dialogue surrounding the crucial issues explored in the series, an extensive media and outreach campaign in more than 25 communities accompanies the series. The campaign features screening events with the filmmakers and their subjects in discussions with United States military personnel, leading policy experts, leaders of the Islamic community, scholars from across the country as well as members of the public. Integrated Web and educational initiatives further extend the campaign.*":http://www.pbs.org/weta/crossroads/about/

I will try and catch the one on Indonesia. Thanks very much for the information. For some reason directv cut off my PBS channel and gave me some rural square dance channel and more sports. I rarely watch anything so I didn’t notice.

You are very welcome, Marc and Paul.

When I first got directv, Paul, PBS cames with a package called “The Works” along with nbc, abc, cbs, fox east and west. Wow, a rural square dance channel…I can see them now in their little costumes, boot scootin’ around…lol. My mom would love that channel.

Bill, thanks for letting us know. I will keep an eye out for your images and the others.

Should be an excellent series with MacNeil at the helm.
