ITVS in the News

Posted on September 30, 2011

A sampling of coverage from USA Today, Boston Globe, Chicago Sun-Times, and more…

USA Today: The 99 aspires to teach Muslim principles Superman has been espousing the virtues of truth, justice and the American way for decades. It's 99 virtues and a global way, however, that power the Muslim-inspired superheroes of The 99. 

Boston Globe: Bringing Wampanoag Back to Life A documentary about the near-miraculous recovery of the Wampanoag language, after it had not been spoken for generations of the Native American tribe, will be introduced by award-winning filmmaker Anne Makepeace before its screening Saturday in Plymouth.

Documentary Magazine: The Perils of Peacemaking: Women in War as Agents of Change One theme that Women and Girls Lead focuses on, and which Women, War & Peace emphasizes, is women and girls as agents of change. It's not only a time-tested storytelling trope, but it steers viewers away from the uninspiring, and often repellent, image of women as eternal victims. 

Chicago Sun-Times: Barn Dance documentary explores country radio's Chicago legacy You don't have to be square to dance to the cultural beat of The Hayloft Gang: The Story of the National Barn Dance
