A free virtual screening of POV: Portraits and Dreams

Thursday September 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

A black-and-white photograph of a boy holding a wire attached to an old camera while seated at a table next to his teacher, Wendy Ewald, who has her hand on the top of the camera.

You’re invited to a special screening of a new documentary from POV called “Portraits and Dreams”.

Thirty-five years ago, photographer Wendy Ewald published the book, Portraits and Dreams: Photographs and Stories by Children of the Appalachians, a collaboration between her and her Letcher County students. She asked them to photograph the things closest to them, including their hopes and dreams. “It opened up a whole new way of making pictures for them,” she said.

In “Portraits and Dreams,” a new film from Appalshop, Ewald returns to Eastern Kentucky to visit her former students.

You’re invited to a virtual film screening on Thursday, September 17 at 7pm (6pm CT). We’ll have a special introduction from one of the film’s producers and a Q&A session following the film.

This event is free, but reservations are required:

After registering, you’ll receive a confirmation email. Closer to the event, you’ll receive another email that includes a link to the event.

This event is made possible by a grant from American Documentary (POV), with funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
