Stanley Nelson on "Attica" and a Retrospective

Stanley Nelson's latest film "Attica" was picked for the Oscar Documentary Short List. It's playing on Showtime and available free for a limited time on YouTube. In February, the Criterion Channel will present a retrospective titled "Black History Rising: Documentaries by Stanley Nelson." The collection covers five films: "The Black Press: Soldiers Without Swords" about African-American-owned newspapers; "Freedom Summer" on the 1964 Mississippi voter registration drive; and a deeply personal film about his family, "A Place of Our Own." Stanley looks back on his career in a wide-ranging interview with Pure Nonfiction host Thom Powers.
