POV #87 highlights two new Canadian docs: The End of Time by Peter Mettler, and The Fruit Hunters by Yung Chang. James Buffin offers his personal take on Hot Docs 2012 with additional sidebars from veteran journalist Maurie Alioff. And another vet, the award-winning filmmaker and teacher Janis Cole, weighs in with analysis of some recent truly hot docs that have dealt with the female image, prostitution and sexuality.
We’re fascinated by Kevin McMahon’s recent National Post essay in which he proposed that the documentary should be considered to be Canada’s National Art. POV’s editor Marc Glassman and McMahon engage in a written dialogue on this important subject in the issue.
With articles by Peter Wintonick on international docs and Suzan Ayscough on filmmaker Laura Sky rounding out the issue, we hope you’ll join us by reading POV #87, available now! See the full table of contents here.
