In October 2010, Mr. Behler was selected as the Regional Director for the Detroit Region and led the restructuring efforts, as Detroit was one of the six regional offices to close in 2012.

A film biography of Marlon Riggs, the gifted, gay, black filmmaker who produced documentary films addressing issues of identity among Afro-Americans and gays. Clips from his films show how he evolved a unique experimental documentary style, mixing poetry, criticism, the personal and the political.
