In this episode of "film-maker" we feature two documentaries. A school for special needs children in Guatemala takes center stage in Tony Mendez's "A Traves de sus Ojos" [Through Their Eyes]. And film-maker Jimmy Evans brings us "Naturally Selected" an up close look at what it means to lead an all-volunteer organization in one of the nation's least civically-minded big cities.
South Florida PBS is pleased to launch filmÂ·maker, a film series for emerging filmmakers from which we acquired, broadcasted, and distributed their work, in addition to providing mentorship. With the support of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, the film maker initiative served 40 artists and reached an audience of over 2. 4 million in the South Florida region. Participants ranged in ages from 22 to 78 and represented cultures from around the globe. The 40 projects featured in film-maker include documentaries, narrative works, music videos, and more. These films will make you cry and laugh; they will entertain and inspire you.
