Private Violence (9pm, HBO) - This documentary by Durham filmmaker Cynthia Hill, makes its HBO debut (it premiered early this year at Sundance and also played at Durham’s 2014 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival). In the documentary, Hill tells stories of domestic violence through the experiences of survivors, including a North Carolina woman who was kidnapped and beaten by her estranged husband, and a justice advocate who offers victims a place to turn for help and works to see that perpetrators are prosecuted. (Note: Hill is also the Peabody Award-winning filmmaker behind “A Chef’s Life” on PBS.)
