The Resilient Spirit

Banned in Afghanistan under the Taliban, photography has enjoyed a second life there after the 2001 US invasion. A new documentary film explores the hopes and fears of four Afghan photojournalists as the US prepares to pull out of the country at the end of this year. Also on the program, how cadaver sniffing dogs from the US are bringing relief to typhoon-ravaged Filipinos. We hear about an American scholar who set out to save Tibetan literature, and we discover why cinnamon rolls are so hot in Libya. Plus, American-style hip hop artist J-Me, celebrates the end of censorship in his native Burma.
