Synopsis:
Iesodo (YAY-sa-doe) is a wise white dove whose name means “The Way of Jesus”. He and his feathered friends bring your favourite New Testament stories to live in a whole new way. In the episode Unto Us a Dove is Born, festivities are in full swing as the flock prepares to celebrate Iesodo’s birthday! The Cypress Tree is decked out with holly berries and excitement is in the air. Everyone gathers as Rocky shares the story of this amazing day, and how it changed their lives forever.

Dove Review:
The Iesodo series continues with this tale that deals with the joy of lesodo’s birth. Just as Jesus is the joy to the Christian world, Iesodo is the joy to the bird world.

This episode, Unto Us a Dove is Born, is a parable comparable to the story in the Bible regarding the birth of Jesus. The birds get ready to celebrate Iesodo’s birthday but when a new law is given they might have to change their plans. While the birds prepare for changes the story of Iesodo’s birth is revealed.

This is a wonderful animated series filled with music and a story that will entertain the entire family. We are proud to award these two tales the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages. — www.dove.org

TREVOR NOAH: WELCOME TO AMERICA

Summary:
Trevor Noah, South Africa’s favourite stand-up comic, went to America to chase his dream. Not only did he find fame as host of The Daily Show, but he also found a new hobby: Racism-Spotting! Filmed at The Lincoln Theatre in Washington, DC, on the American leg of his Lost in Translation tour, Trevor brings his unique worldview and global analysis of American culture to the forefront. From being sold out by a Middle Eastern guy on a plane over an Ebola scare, to trying to figure out why there are no Mexican Jedi in the Star Wars films, Trevor pokes fun at his experience of life in America as a foreigner.

Review:
After watching Welcome to America, it is understandable why Trevor Noah is South Africa’s favourite stand-up comedian, and has now found fame in America as the host of The Daily Show, with his razor-sharp wit and heightened sense of ‘Racism Spotting’!

Noah’s success can be attributed to the fact that he does not try to be funny, and never uses profanity to raise laughter. He has the natural ability to be funny, using oodles of charm, refined wit, and intelligent reasoning to turn the absurd reality of humanity inside out, leaving plenty food for thought as he provokes and challenges conventions.

Filmed as part of the Lost in Translation tour at The Lincoln Centre in Washington DC in 2015, Noah is truly “a thinking fan’s comic, on a global scale!”

Some of the hilarious highlights include Noah’s observations about the police force, how he became a token during the Ebola scare on a flight from South Africa to the States, a laugh-out-loud journey into Kentucky, and his observations about the American culture.

Moviewise says: Although Trevor Noah’s shows are enjoyable, it must be cautioned that he can be rude and some of his statements are not for the faint-hearted. Some content may be objectionable, and we advise viewers to be cautious, especially with younger viewers around.
