Lynn True, Lumo filmmaker

We’ve long admired The New York Times‘ “One in Eight Million” Web series that incorporates photo slideshows of regular New Yorkers with audio interviews. This past week we were excited to see a slideshow about one of POV’s alums! Lynn True is a documentary filmmaker and the editor and co-director of POV’s 2008 film Lumo, which related the moving story of the recovery of Lumo Sinai, a 20-year-old Congolese woman who was raped by marauding soldiers. According to The New York Times, Lynn has followed the New York Giants since her college days, “partly to relieve the pressure of her work as a documentary filmmaker.”

Congratulations to Lynn on a cool feature and on being one in eight million!
