We’ve been busily working away this summer on a series of StoryCorps shorts that will air on POV, the PBS documentary program. Each episode uses original StoryCorps audio recordings, capturing the powerful and poetic stories of everyday people. The six shorts take viewers from an intimate conversation between a boy with Asperger’s syndrome and his mom, to a Brooklyn couple remembering how they fell in love and recognizing that they now must learn to let go, and several other memorable places in between.
The StoryCorps shorts will air with selected feature-length films starting on Tuesday, August 17. We’re working on more StoryCorps shorts that will air on POV in 2011. Many thanks to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, who is funding the series. It has been a dream project!
We’ll share more about the cartoons in future posts, but for now here is the schedule:
“Danny & Annie”
“Q & A”
“Germans in the Woods”
