Join Scribe Video Center and the Institute of Contemporary Art at Penn to celebrate new works from Scribe’s 2022 Documentary History Project For Youth program. Each year, youth participants create short documentary films as a way to explore some aspect of the social, political, and cultural history of Philadelphia. This year, our teens reflected on New Visions of Philadelphia– grappling with pertinent themes such as gun violence, disability rights, Philadelphia’s unique music scene, and more in our current post-pandemic era.

Filmmakers include Anwar Alcide, Shelby Allen, Ny’leema White Bond, Kamani Bright, Finn Busser, Carlos Carmona, Bernard Cross, Kameron Palmer, Sylvan Prey-Harbrough, Chase Morrison, Alfie Safier, Malaya Ulan and Cedar Walton.
