Ethnographic Profiles From A Global Perspective

Streaming Video - 2006
Rate this:
Weaving a worldwide narrative of rites of passage, this program takes viewers into the lives of six children and adolescents, all of whom are undergoing critical stages in their transition to adulthood. Widely varying experiences from Russia, China, Malaysia, Uganda, the Dominican Republic, and Canada's Baffin Island produce a startling picture of the political, social, and economic issues that surround growing up. An Inuit boy's first hunt, a young Russian's involvement in a right-wing hate group, and an obligatory weeklong military boot camp for a 15-year-old Chinese girl-these and other stories show the differences and the unity of human development around the world.
