‘POV’s’ New Season 37 Lineup Features Oscar Shortlisted In the Rearview, and Stories Offering New Perspectives on Self-Determination, Politics, Survival and Identity By A New Wave of Artists Eager to Change the Game of Documentary Filmmaking


Brooklyn, N.Y. — June 3, 2024 — American Documentary’s multi award-winning show, ‘POV,’ America’s longest-running nonfiction series, enters its 37th season with a slate of 14 feature documentaries. These titles cover a wide spectrum of themes including socio-political culture, identity, economic inequality, surviving in a changing world, and the confluence between nature and science – largely told by an au courant generation of filmmakers offering raw, unique perspectives on social issues. This new wave of artists are bringing profound perspectives and a sense of urgency fueling the change of nonfiction films. Their style of storytelling marks a societal shift tied to the generational place they inhabit and is the spark bringing about new critical conversations.

This progression is the latest example of POV’s ongoing commitment to providing a public platform to showcase bold forms of documentary storytelling by directors with diverse voices and unforgettable protagonists with unique points of views. This season, over half of the films are by women, and a quarter are works by filmmakers of color.

In addition, American Documentary established a new partnership with DCTV and its Firehouse Cinema to bring a more holistic, robust experience to the world of documentaries and the communities/people who watch them. The allies will host branded screenings, panel discussions and networking events to acknowledge the artform and increase awareness of POV’s 37th season and upcoming 7th season POV Shorts slates (the latter to be announced later this year).

Erika Dilday, Executive Director, American Documentary and Executive Producer, POV and America ReFramed said: “POV stands for point of view, and each season we try to bring to our audiences documentaries that are both artful and artistic, but offer a unique viewpoint. In Season 37 we are really looking into contemporary issues and themes that we see as being at the front of what people are talking about right now. The geography and location of the stories may be different however, the world’s very much the same. What I find most inspiring is that stories by this season’s filmmakers not only reflect current cultural situations, but also address the question of what do we do next.”

As POV embarks on its 37th season, now more than ever before has the series stayed true to its “point of view” roots when it highlights unique, personal stories about dissent, coming of age, mental health, economic tensions, sexuality, interrelationship between science and the natural world, and identity.

The acquisition of the feature documentary, In the Rearview, by Polish director Maciek Hamela is the latest film to join the Season 37 slate. When Russia escalated its war against Ukraine in 2022, Hamela bought a van and volunteered to drive Ukrainian refugees to safety in Poland. Filmed almost entirely inside his vehicle, In the Rearview eschews depictions of carnage in order to capture the psychological costs and tragic consequences of the Russian invasion. It was listed among 15 films shortlisted for the 96th Academy Awards® in the Best Documentary Feature Film category.

Celebrated films previously announced include the season opener King Coal director Elaine McMillion Sheldon’s seminal film about the cultural roots of coal and its waning impact over a sector of American life, while also making space for a dream of the future to emerge. Who I am Not, sheds light on what it means to be intersex in a binary world, and is directed by Tünde Skovrán, produced by Andrei Zincă and executive produced by Oscars®/Emmy®/GLAAD Vanguard Award-winner Patricia Arquette. In Lin Alluna’s Twice Colonized, the filmmaker travels with Inuit lawyer Aaju Peter as she embarks on a personal journey to reclaim her language and identity after a lifetime of whitewashing and forced assimilation. The goal, to bring her colonizers in both Canada and Denmark to justice.

New additions to the lineup include the following:

As the world still mourns the loss of Alexei Navalny, Joe Piscatella’s Who’s Afraid of Nathan Law? presents an intimate portrait of one of the world's most recognized dissidents fighting for democracy against one of the world’s most dominant superpowers, China. The Body Politic, by director/producer Gabriel Francis Paz Goodenough, follows Baltimore’s idealistic Mayor Brandon Scott during an unprecedented election and throughout his first year in office as he faces obstacles implementing change for the community in the hope of saving his city from gun violence.

In the late-night summer self-portrait, Hummingbirds a co-sponsor with Latino Public Broadcasting, directors/protagonists Silvia Del Carmen Castaños and Estefanía “Beba” Contreras make magic of everyday moments coming of age on the Texas-Mexico border. In Jane M. Wagner’s Break the Game Narcissa Wright live streams every minute of her quest to be the world’s fastest Legend of Zelda™ player. But when her isolated digital existence begins to crack, Narcissa must decide her fate: will she embrace love and adventure in the real world, or will she be seduced again by the glow of the computer screen? Chloe Abrahams’ hypnotic The Taste of Mango follows the director as she probes raw questions her mother and grandmother have long brushed aside, tenderly untangling painful knots in her family’s unspoken past.

Edward Lovelace’s Name Me Lawand is a portrait of a young deaf refugee boy’s emotional journey as he learns British Sign Language and discovers how to express himself, who he is, and where he fits into the world. Is There Anybody Out There? follows director Ella Glendining’s global search for someone with a body that looks like hers, and explores what it takes to love yourself fiercely as a disabled person in a non-disabled world.

The push and pull between the natural world and modern civilization – with a focus on the changing nature of labor and what it means to survive – is the framework of Director Sarvnik Kaur’s Against the Tide; a tale of love, brotherhood and resentments against the backdrop of an adoring sea, which is turning adverse under the menacing effects of an all-pervading calamity called climate change. Fauna by director Pau Faus is a science fiction fable set in a forest near Barcelona, about an old shepherd and his flock who live alongside a high-tech laboratory for animal experimentation. Director Taku Aoyagi’s Tokyo Uber Blues, delivers an honest view of Tokyo from the perspective of a speeding Uber Eats® biker. The film is about gig labor, striking out on your own, and connecting in a burnt-out city.

Chris White, Executive Producer, American Documentary said: “At POV, we have a legacy of supporting notable filmmakers, but we also seek stories by emerging artists whose worldview and personal experiences differ from previous generations. Their approach to non-fiction storytelling by default is based on cultural shifts and their areas of focus are of the moment. Politics, the environment, personal and family evolutions, immigration and internationalism, and changes in systems of power are all topics deeply relatable to our audiences.

“Public media’s accessibility allows us to bring engaging storytelling to people from all walks of life. One overarching theme of Season 37's slate is how modernity brushes up against ingrained cultures and traditions.”

POV episodes premiere Monday nights and will be available for streaming concurrent with broadcast on all station-branded PBS platforms, including and the PBS App, available on iOS, Android, Roku streaming devices, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Smart TV, Chromecast and VIZIO.
