Join South Side Home Movie Project and Experimental Station for an ALL AGES evening of viewing historical and contemporary representations of personal life on the South Side through home-made movies, discussing how we capture and archive media in the current era, and creating a joyous sound effects score collaboratively for a vintage cartoon.

• Watch Breaking Barriers, a high school student film that examines how the South Side is viewed vs. how it is, using footage from SSHMP and cell phone videos.
• See the original home movies used in Breaking Barriers, including the 1963 Bud Billiken Parade!
• Discuss how we create and archive photographs and video in the current era.
• Create sound effects for a cartoon shared with the SSHMP by one of our members.

Bring your home movies for inspection and assessment and ask about free digitization services!

This event is part of Experimental Station’s Intergenerational Perspectives Series. Families are welcome. ExperimentalStation is wheelchair accessible.

LOCATION: Experimental Station, 6100 S. Blackstone, Chicago
