As PBS sets its sights upon our country's most celebrated Performing Arts with the PBS Fall Arts Festival, and the City of Houston opens its doors to one of our nation's premier Film Festivals "Cinema Arts Festival Houston", HoustonPBS brings back the Emmy nominated series of specials "A Conversation On..." focusing on the union of Art and Cinema. With the CAFH going on, Channel 8 has a rare opportunity to bring together producers, film makers, artisans, and aficionados from the world of visual, performing and literary arts. Together, they use their talents to explore these media and bring them to life and preserve them on the big screen. Host and producer Ernie Manouse takes these guests on a journey of exploration of this medium, how it helps us as a community to celebrate the arts, what is learned when these art forms come together, and why we as a community are better off when the arts are recognized and celebrated. Guests scheduled to appear: Trish Rigdon, Executive Director/Houston Cinema Arts Society; Ford Gunter, Art Car: The Movie; Lynn Hershmann, Women Art Revolution; Peter Esmond, Trimpin; and Braden King, Here.
