My Neighborhood


In a year-long initiative, WTTW/Chicago PBS explored the intricacies, challenges, and voices of the local Pilsen community. It aired as a 60-min. documentary, followed by a live town hall, produced in collaboration with Univision Chicago. After the premiere, WTTW hosted a series of events across Chicago and partnered with the Chicago Public Schools to host a video production workshop for high school students to produce short documentaries about their neighborhood experiences. The project will culminate in a youth film festival.
