“POV” to air young Austinite’s film

Matthew Odam

Austinite Elizabeth Mims’ compelling documentary “Only the Young,” which the Austin High graduate co-wrote and co-directed with college classmate Jason Tippet, will air on “POV” on KLRU Monday, July 15 at 9 p.m. The documentary, which had its world premiere at the Austin Film Festival in 2012, made the National Board of Review’s year-end list of best documentaries and was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award. The slow-moving film about three teens coming of age in Southern California was shot on tripods, giving the documentary the visual quality of narrative filmmaking.
