Long-time Spike Lee editor (as well as director and producer in his own right) Sam Pollard, has been a busy filmmaker lately. His feature documentary for PBS, Slavery By Another Name, made its debut at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, in the documentary competition section; and most recently we reported on his teaming with Melissa Haizlip to produce the feature documentary Mr. SOUL!: Ellis Haizlip and the Birth of Black Power TV.
