Link Voices | Link TV
Link Voices is a unique collection of documentaries that show a range of perspectives, untold stories, and regional flavors. These films tackle topics including LGBT rights, homelessness, racism, and poverty through the eyes of the people closest to these issues. Enter the worlds of revolutionary artists, musicians, environmental activists, disabled individuals, and powerless communities.
Funding for the series is provided by grants from Millicent Bell, Alec Rhodes, and other KCETLink donors.
The film "Poverty, Inc." presents a fascinating analysis of how the over-reliance on aid charities inhibits real local economic growth in the developing world (Haiti, Ghana, Rwanda), and how NGOs profit from the "global poverty industry," creating a new type of economic colonialism.
I Am chronicles the journey of an Indian lesbian filmmaker who returns to Delhi, where being gay was -- until recently -- a criminal and punishable offense. After eleven years, she finally confronts the loss of her mother whom she never came out to.
