POV Executive Director Simon Kilmurry unveils the 2010 POV season preview reel.
Experimental, poetic, personal, courageous, uncompromising, enchanting, profound, funny and emotional — these are just a few of the adjectives that come to mind when I look at the list of films that make up POV’s 23rd season. And to give you a taste of that, we’ve produced five minute preview reel — which includes a new opening sequence that gives POV a fresh look.
From Agnès Varda‘s elegantly amusing memoir to Laura Poitras‘ unflinching camera lens; from the protests of William Kunstler to the courageous voice of Daniel Ellsberg; from a look at South Africa that you won’t see during the World Cup and a struggle for justice in Mexico, to the power of dreams and the unique visions of artists — these are stories that you need to pay attention to and that just might change you.
Later in the year we’ll take a look at what makes a family with three stories about adoption. And, get ready to check out a delightful new series of animated shorts from NPR’s award-winning StoryCorps.
So, grab a cup of coffee, turn up the volume (loud) and click play — and let yourself be transported to other worlds.
