CHICAGO --The 22nd Annual Black Harvest Film Festival begins this week at the Gene Siskel Film Center and we take a look at several of the independent projects with a Chicago connection including: "The Big Chop," "Walk All Night: A Drum Beat Journey" "Saving Barbara Sizemore," and "All the Difference," which will air on PBS in September.
From August 5 through September 1, the Gene Siskel Film Center presents the 22nd Annual Black Harvest Film Festival, celebrating the best in contemporary independent filmmaking exploring the stories, images, heritage, and history of the black experience in the U.S. and around the world. Encounters with filmmakers are the festival's pride and joy, and this year we present more filmmaker appearances than ever, with more than forty scheduled as we go to press.
"All the Difference" makes its national broadcast premiere on the POV (Point of View) series on Monday, September 12 at 9 p.m. on PBS. For more on this documentary head to: www.pbs.org/pov/allthedifference/.
