Interviews include renowned figures from the Buddhist, Christian, Jewish and Muslim faiths, including Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel, Buddhist master Tich Nhat Hanh, the Reverend James Forges, as well as best-selling authors Thomas Moore and Marianne Williamson.

9/29                     7:00pm                Raging Water    

ETV's film "Raging Water" explores the effects of the historic "1,000-year flood" on South Carolina. As a potential rain event turns into a catastrophe, South Carolina is faced with overwhelming rainfall, 19 deaths, the breach of manmade structures, the failure of water systems, and floodwaters that swept into an already engorged river system. The water traveled downstream through nearly half the state, where floodwaters caused agricultural devastation and the destruction of entire neighborhoods including Clarendon, Berkeley, Charleston, Georgetown and Horry counties. Boat and helicopter rescues, compromised roadways, threatened archeological sites, damage to the famed Cypress Gardens, loss of housing, and the threat of mold become subjects of the story, as do "lessons learned" and recovery efforts faced by the city of Nashville after their similar 2010 flood. "Raging Water" is by Emmy Award winner Mark Adams. His previous documentaries for ETV include The Vanishing Generation, Over Here, A Look Back at NatureScene, Carolina Caught, and Space Heroes.

9/29                     6:00pm                Her Voice Carries*

Short description: The stories of heroic women are told through their own words and the street art of Sarah Rutherford.

HER VOICE CARRIES shares the stories of five quietly heroic women, told through their own words and the street art of international mural artist Sarah Rutherford. The film chronicles Sarah's unique creative idea: to identify ordinary-yet-extraordinary women whose voices are inspiring and uplifting, and create large-scale murals representing each woman and her experiences. The intent is to celebrate different women from diverse communities and to paint their portraits in neighborhoods outside the ones they call home. By some measures, these women are from one of the hardest hit areas in the nation-Rochester, New York, a city facing serious challenges related to concentrated poverty. What the statistics don't reveal is the often-unknown work of women in these communities to create safe and stable spaces inside the chaos. This film captures how these community builders - in the time of #MeToo - are using their voices to empower and call attention to social issues impacting the women in their communities, including sexual harassment and domestic violence, gender identity, race relations and immigration.
