"A common theme in Kartemquin docs is that making a living is a political matter. Simpson skillfully adapts that perspective to rural Africa, where investing in wildlife links the Masai and others to the new globalism." — Bill Stamets, Chicago Sun-Times
Ahead of our 50th anniversary celebration on June 24th at the Harris Theater Rooftop, we open our archives to the Chicago public with the exhibition “Kartemquin Films 1966-2016: Democracy through Documentary” opening on May 21st and running through August 20th at Expo 72 (72 E. Randolph St, Chicago, IL, 60601).
On September 9th, hundreds of PBS stations across the United States will air Milking the Rhino, the award-winning 2008 Kartemquin film by David E. Simpson and Jeannie Magill. The film will then stream for free for 30 days on the PBS website. Check here to see if your PBS station is showing the film.
