The two films in this series are presented in conjunction with a Fall 2016 undergraduate course offered through The Media School—Ethics in Ruins: Images and Aftermaths in the American Mediascape—which focuses on the social presence and visual persistence of “ruins.” This series was made possible by support from Eric Sandweiss and the Department of History, Poynter Center for the Study of Ethics and American Institutions, the Center for Documentary Research and Practice, the Black Film Center/Archive, Justin Hodgson, and IU Cinema.
