I've been a big PBS viewer since I was little but it's especially important to me to support KPTS, the only public television station in Kansas, since our state legislature has approved a measure to cut funding by 50%. (If you live in Kansas, why not use this form to relay your displeasure about this to the Governor?)
Anyhow, I wanted to tell you about Independent Lens, the weekly PBS series that is your in-home independent film festival. Tonight's featured documentary is The Horse Boy, the story of an autistic boy who finds his connection to the outside world through horses. The Horse Boy gives insight into the autistic mind first in Rowan's native Texas and then on his epic journey through outer Mongolia to seek guidance from traditional shamanic healers.
Be sure to check your local listings tonight for The Horse Boy.
Disclosure: I received a DVD of this film to preview.
