Welcome to OVEE
Indie Lens Pop-Up Preview | Independent Lens | PBS
The 2021-2022 Indie Lens Pop-Up lineup includes five new documentary films that fight for greater diversity, equity, and inclusion, and ultimately a richer understanding of society today: Storm Lake, from filmmakers Jerry Risius and Beth Levison, is the story of Pulitzer Prize winner Art Cullen and his family who deliver the news to their Iowan farming community through their biweekly paper, The Storm Lake Times—come hell or pandemic. In Missing in Brooks County, filmmakers Jeff Bemiss, Lisa Molomot and Jacob Bricca take viewers inside Brooks County, Texas, where migrants go missing more than anywhere else in the U.S. The film follows community activist Eddie Canales, who runs the South Texas Human Rights Center, as he helps families find loved ones who disappeared after crossing the border. In a Midwestern state caught between harsh drug sentencing and rising incarceration for women, Apart by Jennifer Redfearn and Tim Metzger, paints an intimate portrait of three unforgettable mothers—Tomika, Lydia, and Amanda— who rebuild their lives after being separated from their children for years. Writing with Fire, from filmmakers Rintu Thomas and Sushmit Ghosh, chronicles the work of India’s only all-female news network as they strive to cover the country’s inequities even as they themselves work within a male-dominated news system. Debbie Lum’s Try Harder! takes an in-depth look at a prestigious public high school with a majority Asian American student body, fiercely competitive seniors share the dream, and the stress, of getting into a top university. The students proudly own their identity as nerds and tell their stories with candor and humor despite the pressure, but how do they define their identities outside of acceptance letters?
