A Surreal Life

« previous episode | next episode »

Thursday, February 24, 2005

In this week’s Underreported series we look into the relationship between Cuba and Venezuela. Cuban historian Jane Franklin outlines the economic and security agreements that have recently been signed, and explains what this relationship means for Latin America and relations with the U.S. Then, Leonard talks to Sister Rose Thering, the subject of the short documentary "Sister Rose's Passion." The Oscar-nominated film traces Sister Rose's work battling anti-Semitism and challenging the official Church doctrine that blamed the Jews for the death of Jesus. Next, Michael Taylor, co-curator of the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s current exhibit on Salvador Dali, joins us for a discussion of Dali's life and career, and his relationship to the larger Surrealist movement. Finally, Philip Short unravels the disturbing events in the life of one of the century's bloodiest dictators--Pol Pot.
