One of our favorite documentaries of the year, Margaret Byrne's masterful Raising Bertie chronicles several years in the life of several young inhabitants of Bertie, North Carolina. The plight of the rural black poor is seldom seen on the screen, and Byrne has painted a compelling portrait of a community. She joined us recently to talk about the film.
