Are international aid programs in Africa undermining the very communities they aim to help? POV's documentary "Good Fortune" tackles that question head-on in an eye-opening way that brings answers from the point of view of those receiving aid—specifically two Kenyan communities, one urban, one rural. How do lofty Western ideals of international aid truly play out on the ground? Director Landon Van Soest didn't shy away from finding the real answer—and if you tune in to the national broadcast premiere on Tuesday, July 13 at 10pm on PBS, you can find out too.
