- Reporter's Notebook: What's Next for General Taguba?
Major General Antonio Taguba has had more than his 15 minutes of fame over the past two weeks, culminating in his televised testimony yesterday before the Senate Armed Services Committee about his investigation into abuses of Iraqi detainees by US soldiers at Abu Graib prison. David von Drehle, staff writer on the national desk at the Washington Post, looks at what-s next for the by-the-book soldier. (This segment was broadcast earlier today on To the Point.)
East Meets West at the Cannes Film Festival
Michael Moore may make headlines at the Cannes Film Festival, which starts today, but the real stars of the show this year are movie directors from Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Thailand. No less than six of the eighteen films in competition are from Asia. Directors like Wong Kar-Wai, Hong Sangsoo and Takeshi Kitano have replaced the legendary French New Wave auteurs of the 1960's.

Chi-Hui Yang, director of the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, says creative financing and overcoming the "subtitle barrier" are helping Asian cinema come out of the shadows. Sara Terry guest hosts.
