On the next Your Call, it's a special edition of our Friday Media Roundtable. This week, a panel of progressive independent filmmakers join us to discuss how documentaries are changing the mainstream media conversation. We'll be joined by Jeffrey Springer, co-director of Plagues & Pleasures on the Salton Sea, David Redmon, director of Mardi Gras: Made in China, and Laurie Walters, head of film acquisitions for Ironweed Films. What was the best documentary you saw this year? How much power do documentaries have to create social change? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar.
