The Filmmakers: How Do They Cover Politics

How have documentaries changed our conception of politics? POV is public television’s premier showcase for independent documentary films. Throughout its illustrious history the series has been committed to dissecting political issues and illuminating the electoral process. This evening will bring together filmmakers whose works have challenged our conceptions of politics as usual. Each filmmaker will screen highlights of his or her work, and together they will discuss how you cover the political system, as well as obtain access to the private secrets of government.
