The Revealer: Clue 3

In this clip above, it may appear to be a regular violin that the woman is playing.  But as we said in clue number one, sometimes looks can be deceiving. Can you guess how the instrument was made?

We will reveal its origins in this week’s episode of The Revealer, Thursday on Back|Story. Share your guess in the comments section below, and we'll give on-air credit to the first person to guess correctly.

Telling the story of Haiti: After the Earthquake

American filmmaker Jon Bougher was in Haiti when a powerful earthquake struck the island nation two years ago. At the time, he was making a film with Roman Safiullin about two activists and their work in Port-au-Prince. You can watch a clip from “Bound by Haiti”, seen above. The earthquake affected Jon deeply and he’s now training young filmmakers to make short documentaries about life in Haiti since the disaster. You can watch Isha Sesay’s interview with Jon about the project below. And this isn’t the first time Jon has been on Back|Story. He appeared on the show last year to talk about another powerful documentary he co-produced called “Unnoticed: Children of Kabul”.
