Our critically acclaimed documentary In the Game by Peabody-Award winning filmmaker Maria Finitzo’s is racking up screenings this spring, with upcoming appearances at New Zealand's Doc Edge, Chicago Latino Film Festival, Minneapolis-St.Paul Film Festival, Ashland Film Festival; at Governor's State and Stanford Universities; and at the prestigious Women Deliver and ASU GSV 2016 conferences.
Since its release in 2010, Prisoner of Her Past continues to engage communities across the country. To date, the film has been broadcast more than 510 times in 140 markets across the U.S.
As Howard Reich writes in a new update, "It all began as a Chicago Tribune article in 2003, evolved into a book in 2006 and became a documentary film in 2010 – and the story shows no signs of slowing down. The audience only seems to grow."
Kartemquin and The Black Cinema House will partner on "Chicago: Segregated City", a screening and discussion of three of our classic films about race in Chicago, along with an exclusive sneak preview of 63 Boycott, our in-progress film about the 1963 boycott of Chicago Public Schools by thousands of African American parents and students.
