*Kartemquin Films Event

John Phillip Sousa Hall
Gordon Quinn and Justine Nagan, Artistic Director and Co-Founder and Executive Director respectively of documentary powerhouse
Kartemquin Films explore the role documentary film plays in journalism, investigating and reporting events, and the power of docs to build awareness and
initiate action that can inspire change on a local as well as global level. The conversation will be interspersed with clips from Kartemquin's vast archive as
well as works in progress. Among Kartemquin's best known films are HOOP DREAMS, the recipient of every major critics prize and journalism award;
AT THE DEATH HOUSE DOOR; THE INTERRUPTERS and A GOOD MAN. For over 45 years, Kartemquin Films has been making documentaries that examine and critique society through the stories of real people. A proud recipient

of one of eight international 2007 MacArthur Awards for Creative and Effective Institutions, Kartemquin has been described by the Chicago Reader as a
“documentary powerhouse” and in 2010 was honored with the Altgeld Freedom of Speech Award for “unflinchingly holding up a mirror to American society.”
