Tune-in: ‘The Storm Makers,’ a chilling exposé of Cambodia’s human trafficking underworld, Monday, Aug. 31 on POV

Written and directed by French-Cambodian filmmaker Guillaume Suon, The Storm Makers has its national broadcast premiere on Monday, Aug. 31, 2015 at 10 p.m. (check local listings) on POV. Featuring brutally candid testimony, The Storm Makers is a chilling exposé of Cambodia’s human trafficking underworld and an eye-opening look at the complex cycle of poverty, despair and greed that fuels this brutal modern slave trade. The film tells its story from the perspectives of a former slave whose return home is greeted with bitterness and scorn by her mother; a successful trafficker—known in Cambodia as a “storm maker” for the havoc he and his cohorts wreak—who works with local recruiters to funnel a steady stream of poor and illiterate young people across borders; and a woman who has sold to the recruiter not only local girls, but also her own daughter.

Sept. 18 on POV: ‘Cutie and the Boxer’

Stay tuned Friday, Sept. 18 at 10 p.m. (check local listings) on POV for Zachary Heinzerling’s Academy Award®-nominated Cutie and the Boxer, winner of the Directing Award: U.S. Documentary at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The film is a moving account of the chaotic and unconventional 40-year love affair and creative partnership between action painter Ushio Shinohara and his wife, Noriko, also an artist. Ushio, who punches canvases with paint-laden gloves, is famous in Japan and in Manhattan’s art circles, yet wider recognition has eluded him. Noriko, 21 years his junior, put her artistic ambitions on hold to be a wife and mother—and an assistant to her demanding husband. Now, Noriko’s acclaimed “Cutie” series of drawings, depicting the relationship between the title character and a volatile figure named Bullie, is turning their world upside down. Read more.
