When I Walk
When I Walk

Tonight brings the premiere of the 27th season of PBS’ award-winning documentary series POV. The series (aired locally at 9pm on KLRU-TV) continues every Monday night throughout the summer and concludes the season with a special broadcast this fall of Drafthouse Films’ Academy Award-nominated film, The Act of Killing.

A local highlight is sure to be the July 14 broadcast of Getting Back to Abnormal by Louis Alvarez, Andrew Kolker, Peter Odabashian, and Paul Stekler – the department chair of UT’s Radio-Television-Film department, who was recently named Mentor of the Year by the trade publication Variety. The series opens tonight with Jason DaSilva’s When I Walk, in which the up-and-coming filmmaker receives a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and figures out how to adapt his personal and creative life to accommodate the demands of his disease. The remainder of the series is listed below; full descriptions can be found at www.pbs.org/pov.
