POV has just announced the slate of documentaries for its 25th season on PBS, starting in June.
Since POV went on the air in 1988, it has championed the documentary art form, offering filmmakers a venue to take creative risks. It’s where you’ve seen work from documentary greats including Errol Morris, Jonathan Demme, Albert and David Maysles, Michael Moore, Freida Lee Mock, and Frederick Wiseman.
This year’s films reveal humanity’s faith, courage, and resilience. Remarkable individuals challenge authority and their own limitations to indict a dictator, keep investigative journalism alive, rebuild after Katrina, and find strength in love.
