A Chat With Glendora  (2010, 58 minutes, digital video)
Glendora Folsom Buell is a physicist, philosopher, and self-made
television personality who continues to create weekly public access
television programs at age 81.  In this feature documentary portrait,
Glendora describes the early days of local broadcast and cable TV and its
connection to her search for God, justice, and happiness.  As she prepares
for her death and plans her funeral throughout the course of the film she
attempts to preserve the legacy of community television and the everyday
local voices that she has captured in her six-decade career.  The film seeks
to uncover the unique power in Glendora’s self-representation and
solidifies the importance to preserve all of our stories and to write our
collective histories.
