First Aired: November 27, 2000

“In Harm's Way,” documentarian Jan Krawitz's meditation on how a violent act (a 1985 sexual assault) upset her assumptions about fear and safety, and how those assumptions---formulated as she grew up in the 1950s and '60s---were evolving anyway. “Carved Heart” follows Alaskan Native American Stan Marsden as he garners community support for building a totem pole in memory of his son, who died of a drug overdose in 1991. Filmmaker: Ellen Franksenstein.
