Feb 23, 2015

Oscilloscope producer Debra McClutchy discusses the restoration of Kelly Reichardt's debut feature "River of Grass". In the run-down, torpid area between Miami and the Everglades, a dissatisfied housewife, Cozy, and Lee Ray, the live-at-home handyman she meets in a bar, are involved in an accidental shooting. Thinking they have committed murder they decide to flee, but their natures and bank balances ensure they don't get very far.

Documentary filmmaker Marshall Curry with his new film "Point & Shoot". Matthew Vandyke leaves his home in Baltimore to help rebels in Libya overthrow dictator Muammar Gaddafi. With a gun in one hand and a video camera in the other, Matthew records the struggle for political freedom and personal transformation.

Journalist David Thorpe confronts his anxiety over sounding gay by talking to LGBT icons like Dan Savage and George Takei, and exploring the cultural history of the gay voice in film and television in his documentary, "Do I Sound Gay?"

Filmmakers Joe Brewster and Michèle Stephenson follow their son and his best friend through the U.S. educational system.
