Arctic [electronic resource]: Don't Forget Your Passport

Mike Philpott boards a former Soviet spy ship and travels to the outer limits of Canada's Arctic Circle. From Nanisivik, he cruises Lancaster Sound in this storied "land of the midnight sun." When he's not dodging wild polar bears, Mike is photographing giant icebergs from his inflatable boat.

His final stop is the remote Inuit community of Pond Inlet where he learns the ancient art of throat singing.

Galileo [electronic resource]: Europe's Satellite Program Falls Victim to International Wrangling

Galileo is Europe's ambitious satellite navigation project, designed to rival the American GPS, and invigorate European transport and communications infrastructure. Given the control which satellite navigation has over modern society, a question mark always lay over the wisdom of allowing America a monopoly on the technology. Thus, Galileo came into being. While it seemed to offer massive potential for modernization of Europe's communication system and started as an exciting, forward-looking scheme, before long it descended into farce, the result of clever American diplomatic maneuvering and destructive inter-European wrangling. From conspiracy theories to question marks over the future of the E.U. as a viable body, Galileo is a yarn worthy of its controversial namesake.

The Last Outpost: Afghanistan

The Last Outpost: Afghanistan tells the story of the U.S. effort to build up the Afghan army, America's only real exit strategy. Shot from the ground and on the frontlines, the film chronicles the war through the portrait of two Afghans and an American soldier in an embedded team of 130 Afghans. The two cinematographers/directors, Tim Grucza and Yuri Maldavski, spent a month and a half with the soldiers in a tiny outpost by the Pakistan border looking into Waziristan. Ultimately, the film is a look at the absurdity of the war and the impossibility of the fight. It will also explore the psychology, motivation, and identity of soldier allies fighting a common enemy but radically opposed in their cultures and ways of life.
