In an unprecedented collaboration between Chicago's top documentary organizations, MPEF, in partnership with Kartemquin Films, Siskel/Jacobs Productions, The Kindling Group, and Free Spirit Media, is developing a multimedia documentary project about the CPS closings that have ignited heated debate and protests in Chicago for the past several months. In addition to a feature documentary, we plan on producing a series of web videos to chronicle the events surrounding the closings as they roll out. We have been fortunate to receive a generous seed grant from the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation. Melissa Sterne and Rachel Dickson are co-producing.
