Event Details

Scribe Video Center presents a premiere screening of 2020 Precious Places projects on Thursday, January 21, 2021 at 7:00 PM.

Now in its 17th year, join us for the premiere of eight new films made collaboratively by community groups across Philadelphia. Each story captures the oral histories of a special place in our city, exploring sites of memory and spirit. This year’s films document The Germantown Potter’s Field by Afrocentricity International, The Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz and Performing Arts located in South Central Philadelphia, Pier 53 on the Delaware River by Friends of Washington Avenue Green in South Philadelphia, James Shuler Boxing Gym in West Philadelphia, Northlight Community Center in Roxborough-Manayunk, Dahlak Paradise by the Selam Committee in West Philadelphia, Stephen Smith Tower Apartments in Belmont, and the Freedom Theatre by the Disappearing Heritage Historic Group in North Philadelphia.

The films will be followed by a post-screening discussion with this year’s Precious Places groups, viewable on Scribe’s Crowdcast platform and Zoom.



(Thursday) 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
