On the April 7th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with reporter Safa Al Ahmad about her FRONTLINE documentary The Fight for Yemen. Her on the ground and often dangerous reporting from Yemen takes a rare and close-up look at Houthis and their rise to power. How did the Houthis gain power? As violent feuds tear Yemen apart and the death toll rises, what are the prospects for its future? What questions do you have about Yemen? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.


On the February 3rd edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about Saudi Arabia’s domestic and regional policies. Following the death of King Abdullah, the kingdom has been hailed as "an Island of stability in a volatile region." How did Saudi Arabia react to recent popular uprisings in the Arab world? what drives its policies? And what’s in store for its US-Saudi relations? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.



The world is united in grief over recent attacks on French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo. Meanwhile, Muslims are facing violence in the aftermath. Many have denounced it, including the family of a Muslim police officer killed by the gunmen. And many Muslims say what’s needed is a dialogue between civilizations to understand each other on a human level. One way to do that is through sharing ancient art.

We’re used to making movies here in California, but there are still places in the world where that art form is rare. Like in Saudi Arabia, which recently submitted an entry to the Foreign Film category of the Academy Awards for the first time ever.
