Screening: South Side Projections

May 10, 2014 @ 4:00 pm - 4:50 pm

Chicago-based amateur filmmaker Warren Thompson’s Camera on Chicago, filmed over many years, documents the city’s intense postwar growth. According to the Chicago Film Archives, which maintains an archive of Thompson’s work, it “is a continuing effort to record some of the events, characteristics, problems, and glories of Chicago. Footage includes architecture, sculpture, housing, Lake Michigan, Chinatown, parades, Maxwell Street Market, and the people of Chicago. Thompson captures life and culture from the most affluent to the poverty stricken.” Steve Krakow, creator of the “Secret History of Chicago Music” series in the Chicago Reader, will curate a soundtrack of Chicago-made music for this silent film, using songs that alternately complement and comment on Thompson’s shots.
