 POV Shorts Season 6 Unveils New Dimensions in Storytelling

Embark on narratives that crisscross our world, touching deep emotional chords. From Denver City’s oil-driven pulse and LA’s tinderbox streets, to intimate odysseys of redemption, revelation, and rebirth. Immerse yourself in these four new episodes, each offering a distinctive voice. 

Included in this season is SOL IN THE GARDEN, a short documentary awarded a California Documentary Project grant in 2022. 

Synopsis: After 16 years of incarceration, Sol is released from prison, when she discovers that coming into her own freedom can be as challenging as living behind bars. Through a community gardening collective of formerly incarcerated horticulturalists in East Oakland, Sol strives to recover her humanity and sense of self.

All shorts are available now on pov.org and the PBS App.

This project is supported by a California Documentary Project Grant.
