The second annual Talking Pictures Festival starts tonight in Evanston, IL, and Kartemquin is honored to have two films in the event: No Crossover: The Trial of Allen Iverson and Prisoner of Her Past. Both films will be followed by followed by discussions with their respective directors Steve James and Gordon Quinn. Prisoner of Her Past Producer/Subject Howard Reich will also attend.
The Kartemquin presence at the festival doesn't stop there however. Also playing at the festival is Hearing Images, a short film directed and produced by former intern Matt Lauterbach and shot and co-produced by our Admin and Media Assistant Dinesh Sabu (also a former intern). Current intern Shu Ling Yong is a house manager for one of the festival venues, and Communications and Office Manager Tim Horsburgh will also be facilitating discussion at select screenings.
Steve James will also present the keynote speech at Inspire Films' annual Symposium on Social Issue Media tomorrow night at Northwestern University.
Come on out to Evanston this weekend and say hello to us!
