POV’s Season 26 opening film, Homegoings by Christine Turner, will be available for digital rental via Vimeo on Demand beginning February 18, 2014.

The Vimeo on Demand release follows a successful year since Homegoings‘ World Premiere at the 2013 Documentary Fortnight at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Homegoings, a stunning exploration of African-American funerals through a moving portrait of a man and a people – and of the faith, hope and history that sustain them in the face of death, received a 2014 Cinema Eye Honors nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Nonfiction Films Made for Television.
