Sauti: Refugee Girls Speak

A documentary that profiles five teen-aged girls in a Ugandan refugee settlement.

The film, told in the voices of the refugee girls, witnesses the power of girls struggling for agency and self-determination against the odds, and inspires audiences to reframe their ideas about the daily realities, hopes, and dreams of refugees.

Latino Americans: Empire of Dreams

This series tells the story of early settlement, conquest and immigration; of tradition and reinvention; of anguish and celebration; and of the gradual construction of a new American identity from diverse sources that connects and empowers millions of people today. The series covers the 1500s to the present day.

See how the American population is reshaped by Latino immigration starting in 1880 and continuing into the 1940s: Cubans, Mexicans and Puerto Ricans begin arriving in the U.S. and start to build communities in South Florida, Los Angeles and New York.
