Patricia Zimmermann, Professor of Screen Studies and Codirector of the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, presented We Tell: Fifty Years of Participatory Community Media at Indiana University’s IU Cinema.

The cinema, known as one of the top university programming venues in North America, is screening all six programs of exhibition over a two month span. Zimmermann presented “Environments of Race and Place,” with collaboratively produced works spanning 1967 to 2017.

We Tell is cocurated by Zimmermann and Louis Massiah from Scribe Video Center, with research and archival assistance from the XFR Collective.  It is currently slated to screen at over twenty venues across the United States in the next six months.

We Tell: Fifty Years of Participatory Community Media, a national touring exhibition five years in the making, is a thematic collection of short documentaries produced by community media entities from across the US.  It chronicles the hidden histories of place-based documentaries that arise from specific locales, communities, and needs for social and political change.

The exhibition as well as the research,  archival, and curatorial work to mount it are supported by major grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Ford Foundation, and Independence Media.
