The documentary series Out of the Blocks has received critical acclaim for its artistic vision and journalistic innovation; each episode hinges on a simple structure: One City Block, One Hour of Radio, Everyone's Story. This operating principle has taken producer Aaron Henkin into unsung and often-maligned Baltimore neighborhoods. His agenda, purely, is to hear people tell stories about their own lives in Baltimore. The result is a journalistic collage of unacknowledged humanity. A choir of life stories becomes the chorus of a city block. In this evening's talk, Henkin will discuss the genesis and the impact of this pioneering documentary format.
