Documentary Screening: Stranger with a Camera
June 3, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm$8
During the 1960s, filmmakers from around the world came to Appalachia to document the dire conditions of the region’s poorest residents. In 1967, tension between media and community led to an extreme and tragic response, when Eastern Kentuckian Hobart Ison shot and killed Canadian filmmaker Hugh O’Connor, who was in the region to document conditions of poverty. Stranger with a Camera revisits this tragedy as a way to examine the relationship between media-makers and the communities they portray in their work.
