Independent Lens looks at Soul Food, Art and Education in January


One of the things we love about being a public television station is the ability to bring you documentaries and features from independent filmmakers – especially through shows like Independent Lens, which is moving to Monday nights on CET and will continue to air on Thursdays on ThinkTV16!


The next Independent Lens, airing at 10pm tonight on CET and 10pm on Thursday on ThinkTV16, will be Soul Food Junkies. In this documentary, filmmaker Byron Hurt looks at the long-term impacts of eating soul food, the kind of food he grew up with and that has had a profound effect on his life and southern community.


The next couple of Independent Lens episodes include Beauty is Embarrassing on January 21/January 24 and The Revisionaries on January 28/January 31. For more information about Independent Lens and the 2012-2013 season, visit
