POV is an anthology of independent productions focusing on a variety of topics: social commentary, history, politics, health, and the environment. The award-winning POV (a cinema term for “point of view”) series is the longest-running showcase on television to feature the work of America's best contemporary-issue independent filmmakers.

POV: "The Act of Killing"

Nominated for an Academy Award, “The Act of Killing” is as dreamlike and terrifying as anything that Werner Herzog (one of the executive producers) could imagine. The film explores a horrifying era in Indonesian history and provides a window into modern Indonesia, where corruption reigns.
