Short Doc: Invisible City

A rough cut of several interviews featured in this short doc about the impact that police violence in Chicago has had on residents of the city.

Gone But Not Forgotten

My video report on a community quilting project memorializing the victims of police violence in Chicago

Excerpt from the full report published on Atavist:

As part of the project, organizers put together six quilting circles in communities across the city this fall. Residents from surrounding neighborhoods gathered to embroider the names of victims on six point stars (modeled after the stars on Chicago’s flag). They discussed questions of transformative justice, police accountability, and community safety.

Chicago resident Krupa Patel said being in the circle gave a familial vibe to the process of reconnecting with quilting, a family practice in her home country of India.

“We’re stitching the names on cotton, which has historically been used to make clothes to keep us warm, and also picked by our enslaved ancestors. We are resurrecting this fabric and repurposing it by memorializing people.”
