Global Voices  "Welcome to the World"  Is it worse to be born poor than to die poor? 130 million babies are born each year, and not one of them decides where they'll be born or how they'll live.

Among B-Boys   Christopher Woon's first documentary feature explores the intersection of rugged urban b-boyin' (breakdancing) and the traditional roots of Hmong culture. But instead of the usual generational conflict, Among B-Boys unveils a story of the modern and the traditional actually affirming each other, visually weaving between the older generation's memory of ethnicity and war and the younger generation's toprocks, footwork, freezes and power-moves. Woon focuses on three breakers - Impact and Vlln of Underground Flow, and Sukie of Velocity/Soul Rivals Crew-who reveal the path towards b-boy cultural citizenship in America, but continually steer us back to their families, history and community. D

Outdoor Idaho  "Climbing Idaho"  Today's rock-climbing enthusiasts support climbing gyms, clubs and advocacy groups - no longer the exclusive band of wanderers of just a few decades ago.
