1. After living in America for 20 years, Jian Ping finds the courage to write the story of her childhood in Communist China. How her father, a high ranking government official was arrested and falsely accused of treason, her mother persecuted, her family scorned and banished to live in a primitive mud hut, with no water or heating in a cold remote area of northeast China. The traumatic experiences of The Revolution had a lifelong impact on Jian leaving it difficult for her to express her feelings. There is a disconnect between Jian and her free spirited American raised daughter, Lisa. Jian wants Lisa to read her story, to understand her heritage and her mother. For years, Lisa has no interest in reading the manuscript. Growing up as an all American girl with freedom and comfort, Lisa does not identify with her Chinese roots. During the 2008 Beijing Olympics Jian’s father is gravely ill. The two women travel to China to see him for the last time. Lisa decides to read her mother's book. Will this journey into the past forge a better understanding between mother and daughter? Mulberry Child teaches us the human capacity for courage and endurance, and how the events of the past can haunt our future.

    Directed by Susan Cooper.

  4. Life is precious. Water shouldn't be.

    In Western Province, Kenya, women and girls spend long hours fetching dirty water and firewood to boil the water to make it safe to drink. Cholera, typhoid, and other waterborne disease threaten the lives and livelihoods of whole communities unlucky enough to have only dirty water to drink.

    Vestergaard Frandsen distributed nearly 900,000 water filters across the province, but it wasn't charity, it was smart business. Watch what happens when four million Kenyans have access to clean water in their homes and how it impacts their lives, especially of women and girls.
