Edward Said surveys the situation in the Middle East, heavily criticizes Yasser Arafat's decision-making, advocates for a new generation of Palestinian leaders, and defines Israel's role as an occupying power within the conflict. Neuroscientists Dr. Matthew Wilson and Dr. Jonathan Winson share their research on the connection between dreaming and memory and how learning can be impaired by repeated interrupted REM sleep. Filmmaker Allison Anders introduces her film, "Mi Vida Loca," about Latina gang members in Echo Park.
