Special presentation! Oscar-nominated ‘Cutie and the Boxer,’ a tale of love and art, Friday, Sept. 18 on POV

Zachary Heinzerling’s Academy Award®-nominated Cutie and the Boxer airs as a special Friday broadcast on POV on Sept. 18 at 10 p.m. (check local listings). 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 punches canvases with paint-laden gloves. 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.

In a nice coincidence, The Tate Modern in London is showing Ushio's masterpiece, ‘Doll Festival’ (1966) in its new exhibit, The World Goes Pop, Sept. 17, 2015 - Jan. 24, 2016. 
Cutie and the Boxer launches a trio of POV special presentations that explore how art shapes identity. Art and Craft on Friday, Sept. 25, tells the story of master art forger Mark Landis, and Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case on Friday, Oct. 2, looks at the world-renowned Chinese artist and his government's attempts to silence him.

Angy Rivera 

Sept. 21: Undocumented woman comes out of the shadows in ‘Don’t Tell Anyone (No Le Digas a Nadie)’

Since the age of 4, Angy Rivera has lived in the United States with a secret that threatens to upend her life: She is undocumented. Now 24 and facing an uncertain future, Rivera becomes an activist for undocumented youth with a popular advice blog and a YouTube channel boasting more than 37,000 views. She steps out of the shadows a second time to share her story of sexual abuse, an experience all too common among undocumented women. Don’t Tell Anyone (No Le Digas a Nadie) follows Rivera’s remarkable journey from poverty in rural Colombia to the front page of The New York Times. The film premieres Monday, Sept. 21 at 10 p.m. (check local listings) on POV during Hispanic Heritage Month. It is a co-production of ITVS and a co-presentation with Latino Public Broadcasting.
