“Old South” Documentary Screening

Hope is 30 years old and fighting to save her historic African American neighborhood from encroachment by an elite white fraternity, one known to fly a Confederate flag and hold an annual antebellum parade. On one block in Athens GA two communities steeped in history – one black, one white – strive to keep their respective legacies relevant in a changing American South, and the nation as a whole. “Old South” provides a window into the underlying dynamics of race relations that influence so many American communities. And ultimately inspires hope, reflection, and a crucial step forward.
This screening is offered through a partnership between Elsewhere’s South Elm Curatorial Initiative, the International Civil Rights Center and Museum, and Petunia Productions. “Old South” is currently screening in community gardens along the Eastern seaboard as part of “The Healing Spaces Tour”, funded by Wave Farm and NYSCA.

Artist Talk with Samara Smith
Samara Smith, a documentary media practitioner and educator, creates site-specific mobile media projects in and about public space. Her work utilizes mobile strategies–such as, locative games, sound-walks and augmented reality–to invite the “people formerly known as the audience” to actively explore common urban spaces. She has designed projects for Manhattan’s garment district, downtown Brooklyn, midtown Manhattan, Westwood, LA and the Queens Museum’s Panorama. Her work has been featured at Open Engagement and the Conflux Festival, as well as exhibited at the Hammer Museum and at Hunter College. She is currently working on a sound-walk documenting Occupy Wall Street’s transformation of NYC’s Zuccotti Park.
