Vintage Movie Night with Richard Hall: Films About Immigrants and Refugees
  • Vintage Movie Night with Richard Hall: Films About Immigrants and Refugees
  • From early 20th century silent films encouraging immigrants to assimilate to World War II films about refugees and post-war classroom films about the topic, see how America’s ideas about immigrants and refugees have changed — and not changed — over the the past century.

    ABOUT THE PRESENTER​

    In addition to being Co-Host of the Documentary Roundtable and a Docs In Progress teaching artist, Richard Hall is also a documentary shooter, editor, producer, and history buff. He is co-producer of American Feud, a documentary which explores historical and contemporary perspectives on liberalism and conservatism in the United States. He is also a shooter and editor for American Artifacts, a program of C-Span.

    ABOUT DOCS IN PROGRESS
    Docs In Progress is a nonprofit arts organization dedicated to building community through documentary. We do this through a variety of programs including classes, workshops, filmmaker roundtables, and screenings of both in-progress and completed works. We have presented screenings of alumni and community member works in Takoma Park as part of the We Are Takoma program since 2012. Find out more about other Docs In Progress programs.

    Admission is FREE thanks to the support from the City of Takoma Park’s Takoma Park Arts cultural series and the Maryland Film Office. Docs In Progress is also supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Maryland State Arts Council, the Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery County, the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation, and people like you.
