Live from Bethlehem                        37min

Out of the ashes of the second Intifada, the Ma’an News
Agency came into existence as the only independent news
network in the Palestinian Territories. Live from Bethlehem is

hate-filled propaganda and are revolutionizing media in the
Palestinian Territories.

The Road to Fondwa                         40min

Up against centuries of oppression, an unforgiving
mountainous environment, decimated natural resources, and
a centralized state government that offers little or no
development assistance to rural communities, the people of
Fondwa have taken matters into their own hands. Leaders
and dreamers and dedicated workers. Children, mothers,
priests, and students. Haitians, Cubans, Americans and
French - all pitching in for a better tomorrow. With
unprecedented access to the entire Fondwa community, The
Road to Fondwa weaves the seasoned voices and stunning
imagery of Fondwa into a tangible story that challenges the
status quo of international development and seeks to inspire
a new paradigm of international cooperation - one founded
on true partnership and understanding.
