Christine Turner’s feature documentary Homegoings, which explores the African American funeral home tradition, told through the eyes of a Harlem funeral director, made it’s broadcast TV premiere on PBS’ POV series, last night, Monday, June 24, 2013, at 10 pm, kicking off the 26th season of the award-winning POV.
The acclaimed film also opened yesterday, for a 1-week theatrical run (June 24-30) at the Maysles Cinema in NYC, in an exclusive U.S. theatrical premiere, with each screening happening nightly at 7:30 pm, Monday through Sunday, except on Thursday, June 27, when it will take place at 4 pm only.
Each screening will be preceded by StoryCorps: A Selection of Short Films, a series of oral histories recorded by the award-winning organization and animated by the Rauch Brothers.
But if you’d rather watch the film at home, or you don’t live in NYC, and you missed its broadcast on PBS last night, you’re in luck, because PBS has made the entire film available for viewing online, via its website.
It’s embedded below, so check it out. I missed last night’s PBS premiere, so I’ll be watching it online in the next 24 hours.
