Join us at Scribe Video Center in Philadelphia for a presentation of selected films from the archive of the South Side Home Movie Project (SSHMP), an initiative to collect, preserve, digitize, exhibit, and research home movies made by residents of Chicago’s South Side. Launched by Jacqueline Stewart, Professor of Cinema and Media Studies at the University of Chicago in 2005, the SSHMP is both film preservation and visual history of Chicago’s South Side neighborhoods. JACQUELINE STEWART IN PERSON

Cost: $10, $8 Students/Seniors, $5 Scribe members

Stewart is a three-term appointee to the National Film Preservation Board (NFPB), which advises the Librarian of Congress on policy, and is the Chair of the NFPB Diversity Task Force working to ensure the films chosen for the National Film Registry reflect diversity and inclusion.
