POV

Recommended Posts

For discussion of the PBS POV series of documentaries

POV has had a couple of interesting docs so far this month. The first one, "The Neutral Ground", broadcast on July 5, takes a look at the controversy of Confederate monuments by comic CJ Hunt. I have not finished that yet, but it's pretty interesting. The second, "Landfall", broadcast on July 12, looks at Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria hit and the capitalism vultures that descend and the residents have to take care of themselves when the government doesn't seem to be able to act. Some pretty eye-opening stuff and your heart go out to the people who suffer

Some interesting docs upcoming this month: "Stateless" (July 19) looks at the tensions between Haiti and the Dominican Republic; "Mayor" (Jul 26) profiles the mayor of Ramallah in the West Bank of Palestine

August: "Pier Kids"  (Aug 2) profiles Black homeless queer and trans youth hanging out at Christopher Street, NYC for safety
