    This may not be of much interest to those who don't watch the
independent films that air on the PBS series Point Of View, which is
a documentary series I highly recommend.  But for those who may have
an interest in discussing one or any of the films airing on this
season's slate, here is some info. on how you might be able to do so
on the 'net.
