Opening Monday, April 17th, from 4:30PM - 6PM
An introduction to the work of one of the CSRPC’s Faculty Projects-in-Residence – the South Side Home Movie Project (SSHMP) with Jacqueline Stewart (Professor, Cinema and Media Studies) and Candace Ming (Project Manager/Archivist, SSHMP).
The South Side Home Movie Project is an archival and research initiative to collect, preserve and exhibit amateur films from Chicago’s South Side neighborhood. This project grew from the notable absence home movies (especially from minorities) in the canon of film scholarship which is only now beginning to change. The project also seeks to provide context and history for this historic neighborhood.
Supported by the University of Chicago’s Center for the Study of Race, Politics, & Culture, the Film Studies Center, the Women’s Board of the University of Chicago, and the Office of Civic Engagement’s Community Program Accelerator the South Side Home Movie Project is both a film preservation project and a visual history of Chicago’s South Side neighborhoods.
The South Side Home Movie Project was launched in 2005 by Jacqueline Stewart, professor, Cinema and Media Studies, University of Chicago.
