Laura Poitras on "My Country, My Country"

February 10, 2008

Laura Poitras is a Peabody Award-winning documentary film-maker. Her latest effort's been short listed for the Academy Award. It's called "My Country, My Country." Poitras tells Jim Fleming she shoots in cinema verite style and based her film on the actions of an Iranian physician and his family around the recent Iranian election. And we hear clips from her film.
