Program explores non-violence As recent events at Tiananmen Square, the Berlin Wall and throughout Eastern Europe have demonstrated, political movements struggling against repressive governments are increasingly choosing alternatives to armed insurrection. Filmmaker Ilan Ziv anticipated these extraordinary historical developments by exploring the emergence and effects of popular resistance in three volatile areas- Chile, the Phillippines and the Israeli - oc- cupied territory of West Bank. "People Power," the first documentary to probe this trend, will air on Tuesday, Sept. 11, at 10:30 PM on Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN). Ziv, Israeli by birth, eagerly joined the Israeli army and served for three-and one- half years in an elite paratrooper unit, fight- ing during the bloody 1973 October War. Soon afterward, he moved to the U.S. and became a filmmaker documenting, among other subjects, liberation struggles around the world. He recalls in the f'dm, "freedom fighters who saw violence as their only option shaped my political outlook and that of my generation." But, he says, after years of wit- nessing firsthand the bloodshed of guerilla war, "I found myself wondering if Che Guevara's road to justice could have been mistaken, and if Martin Luther King's choice of non-violence could be more than simply a moral option - could it be an effective political strategy?"

Each of these ideas is played out against three of the major people-government conflicts of the current era: the 1988 plebescite on the continued rule of Chilean dictator General Pinochet; the Intifada, or uprising, of Palestinian civilians against the Israeli military occupation of West Bank; and the 1986 revolution against Ferdinand Marcos in the Phillippines.
