West Building Lecture Hall  

Introduced by Patty Zimmerman  

Unearthing lost knowledge and histories, highlighting shared experiences, and centering on the traditions and practices of storytelling, this program includes shorts from community media centers such as Appalshop, Kentucky; Paper Tiger TV, New York City; and Scribe Video Center, Philadelphia. Titles included are by makers who view participatory community media as a tool for self-expression, education, and social change, such as Cruisin’ J-Town (Duane Kubo/Visual Communications, 1974) and Herb Schiller Reads the New York Times 712 Pages of Waste (Paper Tiger TV, 1980), among others. (Total running time approximately 98 minutes)
