In collaboration with Black Cinema House, film historian and scholar Jacqueline Stewart presents a screening of 8mm, Super8mm, 16mm films, and home videos (VHS or mini-DV) as part of an ongoing study of the history and culture of Chicago’s South Side. This screening calls attention to the wealth of information that can be discovered through these artifacts of everyday life and public events from the perspectives of South Side residents. By viewing these films, audiences will see aspects of family and community life often left out of history books.
Included as an extension of the Green Line Arts Center project within the Forms of Imagination exhibition, this screening demonstrates the kind of film events that will be included in the future art space’s programming.
Presented by Arts + Public Life and the South Side Home Movie Project and Black Cinema House.
