HBO Documentary Films continues its commitment to groundbreaking films in the second half of 2012. From an in-depth portrait of Ethel Kennedy by her daughter, to Rosie O'Donnell's DON'T DIVORCE ME! KIDS' RULES FOR PARENTS ON DIVORCE, to a moving look at dyslexia from James Redford, HBO showcases works by top directors who tackle thought-provoking topics.

Upcoming HBO documentaries include (in chronological order):

DON'T DIVORCE ME! KIDS' RULES FOR PARENTS ON DIVORCE (Sept. 20) spotlights children ranging in age from five to ten who have met the confusing, often-painful challenge of their parents' divorce. Combining candid interviews, drawings, songs and photos, this insightful film gives kids a chance to share poignant stories of how divorce has impacted their lives - and offer helpful advice to their parents. Executive produced by Rosie O'Donnell (HBO's "A Family Is a Family Is a Family"), this heartfelt, upbeat documentary shows how children comprehend and cope with the separation of their parents, suggesting ways adults can make this difficult transition easier for their kids. Directed by Emmy(R) winner Amy Schatz (HBO's "Classical Baby").

THE LATINO LIST: VOLUME 2 (Sept. 24) focuses on a remarkable group of Latino notables as they share candid personal stories in intimate interviews with NPR correspondent Maria Hinojosa, offering a unique glimpse into the vibrant and burgeoning culture of Hispanic America. Directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders (HBO's "About Face: Supermodels Then and Now" and "The Black List"), the film spotlights individuals from a variety of backgrounds and professions who have richly contributed to the fabric of contemporary society.

ETHEL (Oct. 18) celebrates the remarkable life of Ethel Kennedy, the wife of Robert F. Kennedy, highlighted by revealing and little-known anecdotes from those who know her best: her family. Directed by Emmy(R)-winning daughter Rory Kennedy (HBO's "Ghosts of Abu Ghraib"), this personal portrait is the first film made about the Kennedys from within the family. The film features candid interviews with Ethel - her first extended interview in more than two decades - and her children Kathleen, Joe, Bobby, Courtney, Kerry, Chris and Max, spanning her political awakening, the life she shared with Robert Kennedy, and the years following his death, when she raised their 11 children.
