Event description
See a selection of original films about Indiana created by five award-winning Indiana filmmakers in Indianapolis!

About this Event

In 2019, five award-winning Indiana filmmakers were chosen by Indiana Humanities to create short documentaries examining the ways Hoosiers experience urban and rural identities today. The films—about a dance instructor in Gary dealing with the city’s disinvestment in arts education, about a rural community newspaper in Wayne County filling the gap caused by media consolidation, about a southern Indiana composting business that hires the formerly incarcerated to transform the land and their lives—complicate our ideas about who lives in Indiana and what they’re up to. Featured filmmakers include Dan Rybicky and Ryan Gleeson of Chicago’s Kartemquin Films, Emmy nominee Pat Wisniewski and Tom Desch, Bloomington-based duo Mitch Teplitsky and Gabriel Lantz, and Chad Perdue.

See the trailer here.


Please note: The screening will include a brief intermission between the third and fourth films.

Pat Wisniewski and Tom Desch

One man's journey from Sundown to Sunrise as he and his family integrate an all-white Indiana town in 1968. By breaking the color barrier, they also helped transform the town and place it on a trajectory of inclusion.


Ryan Gleeson

Follow a week in the life of a small-town newspaper in Wayne County, Indiana, for a look at how rural journalism is practiced today and why it matters.


Dan Rybicky

A dedicated dance teacher continues working with and inspiring his current and former students even after learning the nationally recognized arts high school in Gary, Indiana where he has taught for decades is being closed by the state.


Chad Perdue

A look at the experiences of mixed-race and non-white Hoosiers who live in rural and suburban communities.


Mitch Teplitsky and Gabriel Lantz

In southern Indiana, a married couple decide to leave academia to start a composting business — employing ex-offenders along the way. Now they're on a mission to avert a looming waste crisis in Indiana, and beyond.
