Babel

Loading...
A wealthy American is touring Morocco with his wife. The two become the focus of an international incident also involving a poor Moroccan farmer who is struggling to keep his two young sons in line and his family together. A San Diego nanny, with her employers absent, makes the disastrous decision to take her charges with her to a wedding in Mexico. A deaf-mute Japanese teen tries to deal with a relationship with her father and the world in general that has been upended by the death of her mother. It's about a gun. It's about communication - or the lack of it - both intercultural and intracultural. Raises issues like terrorism and immigration, and is as basic as husbands talking to their wives and parents understanding their children.

Poto and Cabengo

Grace and Virginia are young San Diego twins who speak unlike anyone else. With little exposure to the outside world, the two girls have created a private form of communication that's an amalgam of the distinctive English dialects they hear at home. Jean-Pierre Gorin's polyphonic nonfiction investigation of this phenomenon looks at the family from a variety of angles, with the director taking on the role of a sort of sociological detective. It's a delightful and absorbing study of words and faces, mass media and personal isolation, and America's odd margins.

Living on the Fault Line

As a microcosm of "Main Street America," this program focuses on the self-proclaimed City of the Future? San Diego, California? Which has hitched its star to the promise of aggressive new information-age companies and rapid globalization. Companies that have moved manufacturing operations to Mexico are examined, along with the negative effects such moves have had on Mexican and American workers. In San Diego, we meet winners like the entrepreneurs who are creating their own tomorrow, as well as those Americans who are having trouble earning a secure tomorrow by loyalty and hard work. We see the high-tech elite as well as blue-collar factory workers and white-collar middle managers, forced into downward mobility or temp and part-time jobs. One special feature of this program is the pe [...]
