Chicago Artists Respond to the Aftermath of the 2016 US Presidential Election in New Documentary Web Series
On The Real Film (a Chicago-based company that produces documentaries, fictional films, music videos, and commercial videos) presents "Transition to Power," a documentary web series created as a response to the 2016 United States Presidential Election.
Created in collaboration with Sixty Inches From Center (an online arts publication and archiving initiative), "Transition to Power" dives into the aftermath of the election through the eyes of artists and creatives. In each episode, artists discuss their thoughts on how to move forward in this explosive and fragile political climate.
The first episode, "Livid + Motivated," features movement artist and arts administrator Felicia Holman who is celebrated throughout the city for her work with Honey Pot Performance, Arts Admins of Color Network (AACN), and Links Hall.
New episodes of "Transition to Power" will be released regularly between now and inauguration, with future episodes featuring a growing list of celebrated cultural producers including artist Tony Fitzpatrick, artist + designer James T. Green, architect Paola Aguirre, cinematographer + director Hannah Welever, and writer Rabha Ashry.
