Hidden Movies: An Intro to the South Side Home Movie Project
View All Events
4:30pm - 6:00pm CDT
The South Side Home Movie Project is an archival and research initiative to collect, preserve, and exhibit amateur films from Chicago's South Side neighborhoods. SSHMP was launched in 2005 by Professor Stewart, and grew from the notable absence of home movies (especially from minorities) in the canon of film scholarship which is only now beginning to change. The project seeks to provide context and history for this historic neighborhood.
Supported by the University of Chicago's Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture, the Film Studies Center, the Women's Board, and the Office of Civic Engagement's Community Program Accelerator.
