Indiewire talks to Independent Lens' founding producer Lois Vessen about the PBS documentary series' move to Monday night and some of the exciting films that'll be shown this season.

She says, "Our mission is to present filmmakers who are telling stories about communities that don’t traditionally get to tell their stories told, and in an election year that is more critical than ever when so much money is being spent on campaigning. It’s the wealthiest, the people who have the largest megaphone who get to dominate the news cycle, and it's critical in an election year and in every year that the small voices also have a chance to get out there. I think our series, with POV, is committed to making sure those stories get out there every year, every week, and PBS is the perfect home to do that."
