UnionDocs Video Podcast

UnionDocs is a documentary arts collaborative in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Our activities vary in form - we work in video, sound, text, live performance, music and photography, both independently and in combination, online and off. This video podcast promises an eclectic collection that expands beyond what can easily be called 'documentary,' we use the term because it implies an engagement with the subject of reality.

DisLocation Premiere

The Documentary Bodega is Opening Soon... For a taste, here's a new edit of the DisLocation premiere. For three days, UnionDocs welcomed Sudhir Venkatesh, professor of sociology at Columbia University and director of Columbia's Center for Urban Policy and Research, as he presented his documentary film DisLocation for the first time. The screening included a discussion with several subjects of the film and a photography exhibit which remained installed at UnionDocs through the spring. An interview of Venkatesh was collaged with other UnionDocs audio recordings in a radio broadcast on WKCR FM NY. In February 2002, families living in the Robert Taylor homes on Chicago's Southside were given a 180-day notice of eviction. In six months, the community that had been their home for generations would be demolished. DisLocation chronicles the lives of families forced to relocate from the high-rises. It is an attempt to understand how tenants cope with the loss of their home (and their collective identity) and start their lives over in new residential communities. This conversation with some of the tenants who took part in DisLocation was edited by Alex Marvar.
