Featured in the video are clips from Taylor Chain I & II, The Chicago Maternity Center Story, and The New Americans, with Gordon discussing the creation and audience response to all three films in detail. There are also some snapshots of current Kartemquin staff members and interns, plus a priceless shot of Gordon's High School Yearbook photo.
The Calling is a PBS mini-series and engagement campaign by Kartemquin's friends Kindling Group. Gordon was filmed and interviewed by Rachel Pikelny, a Producer on American Arab, Mormons Make Movies and A Good Man, and the video was edited by former Kartemquin intern Matt Lauterbach.
Chicago audiences can see Taylor Chain and a number of Kartemquin Films either directed or executive produced by Gordon Quinn later this year on WTTW as part of their celebration of our 45th anniversary. Get more information.
With a noted tradition of nurturing emerging talent and acting as a leading voice for independent media, Kartemquin is building on more than 50 years of history as Chicago’s documentary powerhouse.
