The 30-minute interview, which took place on site in Cleveland, centered on his film, which recounts the lives of German POWs imprisoned in Kansas during World War II. The prison camp in Concordia, Kan., operated from 1943 to 1945 and held more than 4,000 prisoners. It is now primarily a cornfield within the small town, though its signature guard tower remains.

"Prisoners of Plenty" was completed in 2009.
