Schwartzman’s doc follows the romance between Gus and Jiyun–seemingly opposites in every way–who meet online and fall for one another. After a long email exchange of several months, the two decide to meet in person.
xoxosms airs with Only the Young, a documentary directed by Elizabeth Mims and Jason Tippet, about two skateboarding best friends Garrison and Kevin and Garrison’s girlfriend Skye–who deal with growing up, religion and their relationships with each other in a small Southern California town.
You can catch both on your local PBS affiliate at 10pm. Check out the trailer for xoxosms below. An interview with Nancy Schwartzman is in In Her Voice: Women Directors Talk Directing.
