SSHMP + Arts + Public Life via Facebook Live
Thursday April 9 @ 7pm
South Side Home Movie Project invites you to tune into Facebook Live with Arts + Public Life every Thursday night at 7pm to experience a unique program of vintage home movie footage from the South Side Home Movie Project, sound-tracked by some of Chicago’s top DJs.
This week DJ L O Kari will be spinning an all-vinyl set inspired by scenes of kickbacks and turn ups in the home movie archives, themed “The Pedagogy of Joy,” reflecting a time when we’re all “between the grooves.” Featured home movies include clips from the Pitts, Frazier, Merrifield, Alsup-Smith, Maxwell, Patton, Buford and Ellis Family Collections.
