About This Series

Independent Lens is television's largest showcase of independent documentary film, introducing a new documentary film each week from among the best independent filmmakers working today – creating an independent film festival in your living room. In its thirteenth season, the series will feature an Oscar “shortlisted” film, several International Documentary Association Award winners, and SXSW, Sundance, and Tribeca winners, in a diverse slate of films that will take you to practically every corner of the United States, from Hawaii to the Gulf of Mexico, as well as Afghanistan, Africa, and Haiti.

“From explosive conversations about race in America, to the ongoing war in Afghanistan, to communities dealing with poverty and unrest, our winter/spring line-up features provocative explorations into many hot-button issues of our time,” says Independent Lens Deputy Executive Producer Lois Vossen. “We’ll continue to spark conversations by presenting independent voices and perspectives to help bridge gaps that threaten to divide us.”
