The final film in the Ethnographic Film Series will be Oak Park Stories at 7 p.m. November 16. The free screenings will be at 7 p.m. in Schroeder Hall, room 138.
Oak Park Stories is a series of experimental, reflexive, and digital ethnographies that attempts to explore a 40-year-old social experiment in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park, a community that is internationally renown for its attempts to promote ethnic diversity and integration.
The series explores politics, folktales, challenges, and tolerance through film. Discussions organized by the Department of Sociology and Anthropology follow the films.
