Oscar-winning director Jonathan Demme tells us about filming a series of documentaries about people struggling to recover in post-Katrina New Orleans. But first, we get an update on Laos on our first Underreported feature. Then, we take a look at Japan's pro-whaling campaign. And Nathan Englander tells us about his debut novel about Jews in a troubled Buenos Aires. Plus, the life of Ralph Ellison--before and after Invisible Man.
