POV Short Cuts

Episode Guide »
Short is sweet as POV presents brief documentary encounters -- including an Academy Award nominee, a Student Academy Award winner and the return of StoryCorps. "The Barber of Birmingham: Foot Soldier of the Civil Rights Movement" by Gail Dolgin and Robin Fryday: James Armstrong, whose Alabama barbershop has been a hub for haircuts and civil rights for 50 years, celebrates the election of the first black president in this Academy Award-nominated short. "Sin Pai-s (Without Country)" is a winner of a 2011 Student Academy Award. This film, by Theo Rigby, explores one family's complex and emotional journey involving deportation. The oral-history project StoryCorps brings intimate conversations among friends and families to life in touching, often hilarious animated shorts that are sure to strike a chord in all of us. "Eyes on the Stars," by Carl McNair, tells the story his brother Ronald, an African-American kid in the 1950s who set his sights on the stars. In "Facundo the Great," Ramon "Chunky" Sanchez recounts how the new kid at school became a hero when his teachers could not find a way to Anglicize his name. In "A Family Man," Sam Black talks to his wife about his father, an enduring lesson and the power of a look.
