Thursday on Worldview:

We examine Saudi Arabia's efforts to stem the tide of change sweeping the Middle East.  The country hopes to form a coalition with its five Persian Gulf neighbors. Joseph Kechichian of the Middle East Institute weighs in.

And, Worldview film contributor Milos Stehlik talks with Lebanese director Nadine Labaki about her film Where Do We Go Now? It tells the story of a rural unnamed village inhabited by both Muslims and Christians who co-exist with an uneasy peace. The film opens in Chicago on May 18.

On Global Activism, independent filmmaker Jason Glaser tells us why he put filmmaking on hold and started the La Isla Foundation. The organization is dedicated to stopping the epidemic of kidney disease in Chichigalpa, Nicaragua.
