Home Sweet Gone (1993), part of Housing and the Way We Live

From the crack epidemic of the 1980s to the stop-and-frisk encounters with police today, young people use their cameras to tell the stories of their times. Spanning three decades, this extraordinary documentary series capture moments in New York City’s history through the fresh but unblinking eyes of emerging teen filmmakers from the Educational Video Center’s (EVC) Youth Documentary Workshop. Portraits of struggle and resilience, these award-winning short films brim with life and speak to us with as much honesty and immediacy today as they did when they were first created.

Each program will be followed by Q&As with the producers and participants. This series is presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center in partnership with the Educational Video Center.
