No Color Without Contrast from Kate Zambon on Vimeo.
Working with talented high school students from North Philadelphia at Taller Puertorriqueño's Youth Artist Program, filmmakers Joanna Siegel, Melissa Beatriz Skolnick, and Kate Zambon sought to capture the personal and artistic journeys of the youth through film. While facilitating collaborative film workshops with the students, themes of race/ethnicity, cultures, language, and identity emerged. Throughout this process of engaging in story development and visual representation, the students created a video of their own, while the filmmakers documented the process using metafilm techniques.
The project was done with support from the Lee Way Foundation.
