On Tuesday night, POV co-presented the New York premiere of The Way We Get By (which will air as a POV November special on PBS) at the IFC Center in Greenwich Village. The screening was a part of Thom Powers‘ venerable Stranger than Fiction (STF) documentary series, and capped a full New York day for Boston-based filmmakers Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly.

Earlier in the afternoon, we hosted them at DCTV’s downtown studio for their official POV on-camera interview. Several minutes of the conversation with Aron and Gita will be broadcast after the premiere of their film in November on PBS stations, and a video podcast hosted by POV’s Director of Production and Programming Chris White will be available for download here on our website. Be sure to check back this summer for more details.

Watch the trailer for The Way We Get By! You won’t want to miss it when it airs on POV in November.

Aron and Gita’s film has been garnering rave reviews everywhere they screen it, and Tuesday night was no exception. You can read a very insightful review of the film at Pamela Cohn‘s Still in Motion blog and see pictures at the STF website.

We also send special thanks to Camden Film Festival co-founders Leah Hurley and Ben Fowlie, who were on hand to help present the film and orchestrate not one, but two after-parties. If Tuesday night was any indication, their doc festival this year (October 1-4, 2009) will be a lot of fun.
