NEW SERIES FROM DEEP DISH TV!
Uprooted: A Grassroots Examination of the Politics of Migration
The corporate media “debate” on immigration reduces the question to a false contest between human and civil rights versus security. Rather than have a contextualized, meaningful dialogue, the voices of those most affected by immigration policy are rarely heard while the opinions of Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and former CNN host, Lou Dobbs fill the airwaves.
will not only articulate a broad critical analysis of the immigration debate, but also showcase inspiring and moving portraits of those most affected by U.S. immigration policies, as well as those that are mobilizing to change those policies. The series will systematically debunk the nativist mythologies that fuel the rhetorical engine of the right wing pundits, while offering humane and hopeful solutions for how different peoples of different nations can share the one imperiled planet we all share.

The Many Voices of the Global Village
Deep Dish is producing a twelve part series entitled Waves of Change, which samples community media in dozens of countries. This series will be a survey of projects around the world in radio, television, theater, murals, comics and the internet-- forms of resistance to homogeneous commercial culture. The series celebrates the energy and success of community expression, but also looks at the problems of sustainability, the difficult interactions with political power, the stressful and sometimes dangerous lives of media activists and the ever-present potential of co-option by commercial interests.
DIY* Media: Movement Perspectives on Critical Moments
A screening and DVD series that is curated from the best material in Deep Dish TV's 22 year-old grassroots media archive. This project is animated by the idea that history is, fundamentally, competing sets of narratives that are selected by interested parties. The mainstream media curates a history for us that is frequently out of sync with the experience of social actors. This project is fundamentally about collecting and distributing the narratives that social movements have curated for themselves; telling the histories that are always in danger of being drowned out and forgotten.
