This week on Artworks,
The PRIDE Film Festival returns to Bloomington, Indiana this week for four days of celebrating the cinema of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community. We’ll speak with the Buskirk-Chumley’s Executive Director about what’s on the schedule and how the festival has grown since it began in 2004.
Also on the program, we’ll find out how archivists and researchers are preserving our recorded heritage at two Indiana University facilities, the Black Film Center and Archive and the Archives of Traditional Music.
And finally, a conversation with food author and farming advocate, Gary Nabhan, who recently visited Bloomington as part of the Bloomington Eats Green conference.
