POV Celebrates 25 Years on PBS in 2012 with Powerful Slate of New Films That Reveal Humanity’s Faith, Courage and Resilience Remarkable Individuals Challenge Authority and Their Own Limitations to Indict a Dictator, Keep Investigative Journalism Alive, Rebuild After Katrina and Find Strength in Love

Award-winning Documentary Series Moves to Thursday Nights; New Season Premieres June 21, 2012 at 10 p.m. on PBS

Launched in 1988 to showcase new and challenging point-of-view documentaries on PBS, POV (Point of View) has grown to become American television's longest-running series dedicated to contemporary nonfiction programming. POV films have won virtually every major film and broadcasting honor, including Academy Awards®, Emmys® and Peabodys. In its 25 years on public television, POV has featured dramatic and provocative accounts of contemporary life that — like the season opener,My Reincarnation— provide unparalleled access to half-hidden worlds of timely interest. Some, like this season's Granito: How to Nail a Dictator, even alter the course of history.

POV moves this year from Tuesdays to Thursdays on PBS, and the series begins its 25th season on Thursday, June 21, 2012 at 10 p.m. (check local listings) with award-winning filmmaker Jennifer Fox's My Reincarnation, the story of a father's spiritual persistence and a son's spiritual awakening. The regular season runs through Thursday, Oct. 18 and continues with two special presentations in the fall and winter, respectively (dates and times to be announced): Reportero, which conveys the urgent story of journalists risking their lives to expose the truth; and Girl Model, a cautionary tale that follows a complex supply chain of young models that stretches across Siberia, Japan and the United States.

Also this season, El Velador (The Night Watchman), Nostalgia for the Light and The City Dark push the boundaries of the documentary genre to unlock the secrets of the night sky—in the silence that follows the violence of Mexico's drug war; in a Chilean desert, where astronomers explore the universe and women reclaim their dead; and in America's cities, where the glare of technology just might be making darkness a thing of the past. And Oscar®-winning director Jonathan Demme, whose Cousin Bobbypremiered on POV in 1993, returns with I'm Carolyn Parker: The Good, the Mad and the Beautiful, a story of personal triumph after Hurricane Katrina.

Again, this is just a sample of what to expect; for the full POV 2012 lineup, click HERE.
