While World War II films typically picture the end of the war as triumph, World War I movies reflect that ghastly absurd logic, and tend to end on notes of waste, loss and futility.</p><p>Most WWI films are anti-war, and there’s no such thing as triumph.</p><p> Fri, 11 Jul 2014 11:00:00 +0000 Howie Movshovitz 58745 at http://www.kunc.org Poignant Cinema Sprung From 'The War To End All Wars' The New Sound Of Young Nashville: Three Country Artists To Watch http://www.kunc.org/post/new-sound-young-nashville-three-country-artists-watch <p>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PBZDQSS2Zc</p><p>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lz1WvrABH2Q</p><p>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LLg6ksGp29g</p> Fri, 11 Jul 2014 09:00:00 +0000 NPR Staff 58762 at http://www.kunc.org The New Sound Of Young Nashville: Three Country Artists To Watch For Two Sisters, A Family Bond Tightens In Bullet's Wake http://www.kunc.org/post/two-sisters-family-bond-tightens-bullets-wake Kai Leigh Harriott, 14, is paralyzed from the chest down, the result of a stray bullet that hit her when she was 3. She was sitting outside on her porch in Boston with her older sister, Aja David, who was babysitting her at the time.<p>It was around the Fourth of July, when the sound of fireworks is common. "All a sudden that was the sound, although it was different. It was a gunshot," says Aja, now 25, on a visit to StoryCorps. "Someone was shooting. Not at us, but in our direction.
