Season 26 opens with "Homegoings," which profiles Harlem funeral director Isaiah Owens, the son of a South Carolina sharecropper whose fascination with burials began as a boy, while also examining the traditions of African-American funerals.

"5 Broken Cameras" relates the story of Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat, who bought a video camera in 2005 to record his and his wife's new baby, and wound up using it to also document his village's protests against Israel's security fence, which cut through the community's farmlands, and the expansion plan of a nearby Israeli settlement.
