Two films produced in collective contexts will be shown. Kartemquin Films has been producing documentaries in Chicago for over 50 years: WINNIE WRIGHT, AGE 11 (1974) tells the story of a working-class family living in Gage Park, Chicago, where African-Americans are increasingly moving to the previously mainly white district. Pacific Street Films was founded in 1969. FRAME-UP: THE IMPRISONMENT OF MARTIN SOSTRE was made in 1972 about the Puerto Rican owner of a bookstore in Buffalo, who is wrongly sentenced for drug possession and assault and is incarcerated in Attica.
