century. When students take physical education at this high-tech middle school
on the Ewa plain, they don’t just play dodge ball or run laps around the track.
We learn how their innovative P.E. program is using computer technology to help
students get fit both physically and digitally.


Also Featured:

Maui High School on the Valley Isle explores the challenges of designing
schools to provide a healthy learning environment while keeping out intruders.
Architect Charles Kaneshiro, president of Group 70 International based in
Honolulu, shows the design elements he incorporated at Puʻu Kukui Elementary
School in Wailuku, Maui, to provide “zones of supervision” throughout the
multi-building campus.


On Hawaii Island, Hawaii Preparatory Academy students Mason Dupont and Jacob
McCafferty researched, designed and created a remote-controlled boat that can
be used to study marine life such as whales. The boat wasn’t created for a
traditional class in engineering or science, but for a self-directed,
independent study project.


Kapaa High School on Kauai tells us about a new program created by the Kauai
Humane Society to encourage the adoption of dogs. Volunteers take dogs from the
Kauai Humane Society on field trips to various places on the island to help
them meet potential owners.

Mount Rushmore

Tues., June 30, 9:00 pm



High on a granite cliff in South Dakota’s Black Hills tower the huge carved faces
of four American presidents. Together they constitute the world’s largest
sculpture. The massive tableau inspires awe and bemusement. How, and when, was
it carved? Who possessed the audacity to create such a gargantuan work? The
story of Mount Rushmore’s creation is as bizarre and wonderful as the monument
itself. It is the tale of a hyperactive, temperamental artist whose talent and
determination propelled the project, even as his ego and obsession threatened
to tear it apart. It is the story of hucksterism and hyperbole, of a massive
public works project in the midst of an economic depression. And it is the
story of dozens of ordinary Americans who suddenly found themselves suspended
high on a cliff face with drills and hammers as a sculptor they considered
insane, Gutzon Borglum, directed them in the creation of what some would call a
monstrosity and others a masterpiece.

culture become the site of today’s bitter and seemingly intractable struggle?
Was there a turning point when things could have been different? Weaving the
raveled threads of Arab and Jewish narratives back together, the film provides
new insights into events that took place in Palestine which presaged a century
of unrest.




Wed., July 1, 9:00 pm



See how the mixing of prehistoric human genes led the way for our species to
survive and thrive around the globe. Archaeology, genetics and anthropology
cast new light on 200,000 years of history, detailing how early humans
became dominant.



Discover the ancient humans living across Asia when Homo sapiens arrived.
Our ancestors mated with them and their genes found a home within our DNA.
More than that, they’ve helped us face down extinction.



When humans arrived in Australia, they were, for the first time, truly alone,
surrounded by wildly different flora and fauna. How did they survive and populate
a continent? There is a close cultural and genetic link between early Australians
and modern-day Aborigines; here the ancient and modern stories intersect as
nowhere else. The secret to this continuity is diversity. Intuitively, early
Australians found the right balance between being separate and connected.
