Tune-in alert! Chilean women share stories of love, loss and change in ‘Tea Time,’ Monday, July 27 on POV

Can we talk? The answer has been a resounding "yes" for a group of five Chilean women who have gathered once a month for the past 60 years to speak their minds—and reveal the current state of their hearts and souls. In an abiding ritual of friendship and survival, these now-elderly Santiago women have come together for tea and pastries—and talk—during an era of intense social and personal change. Director Maite Alberdi, granddaughter of one of the group members, captures their intimate, charming gatherings in Tea Time, which has its national broadcast premiere on POV on Monday, July 27 at 10 p.m. (check local listings).

"Tea Time takes us through a rite of friendship and shows the importance of traditions and celebrations and how rituals can help life make sense," says Alberdi. Want to get the full experience and make some delicious Chilean pastries? Find recipes on the PBS Food Blog.

Ai Weiwei gets his passport back!

Yesterday, Chinese artist Ai Weiwei tweeted 今天,我拿到了护照, which in English translates to “Today, I got the passport.”  According to The New York Times, he "was given back his passport...after being barred from traveling abroad since he was detained in 2011 in Beijing." The Chinese government had not only kidnapped and imprisoned the world-renowned artist in a secret location for protesting its policies, but after his release in 2011, it conducted a show trial on baseless charges and kept him under house arrest for a year.

Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case, a stunning and stirring documentary by Andreas Johnsen, dissects the persecution and shows how the government’s attempts to silence Ai Weiwei have turned him into China’s most powerful artist and an irrepressible voice for free speech and human rights around the globe. See the film on POV on Friday, Oct. 2 at 10 p.m. (check local listings).

From "The Look of Silence," directed by Joshua Oppenheimer

Doc Talk on POV's documentary blog

"My films are not about the crimes that happened in 1965. They are about impunity today." Joshua Oppenheimer on ‘The Look of Silence’ and revisiting the Indonesian genocide
Filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer (The Act of Killing) tells Doc Soup Man Tom Roston about the making of his new documentary, "The Look of Silence," which begins a theatrical run this weekend.

A few things to note before you watch 'The Look of Silence' this weekend
"It’s all fairly straightforward. But then, suddenly, the film takes a radical turn."

And in case you missed it...

Take Care, Mr. Elson’: Watch the documentary and go behind the story with journalists from The New York Times
Emma Cott and Abby Goodnough discuss reporting on the effects of the Affordable Care Act on one chronically ill man in Louisville, Kentucky, and what his story says about the United States healthcare system in 2015.

Albert Maysles: Conjurer of real life
Pioneering filmmaker Albert Maysles passed away earlier this year at the age of 88. POV’s series creator Marc Weiss remembers Maysles for his profound influence on him and generations of documentarians.

New documentary discoveries from Hot Docs 2015
"What stands out most for me are two small films," says Roston. "They’re small in the sense that they’re low budget, and there’s been very little talk about either one. Maybe that’s part of their charm — they felt like discoveries."
