Old School Adventures from EnglewoodSouth Side of Chicago

2_Elaine Bowen_300dpiElaine Hegwood Bowen, Old School Adventures from EnglewoodSouth Side of Chicago, is a veteran journalist and native Chicagoan born and raised on the South Side. She has covered both Chicago's urban and suburban communities. Elaine has been writing for the Chicago Crusader newspaper since 1994. In her book, Elaine shares her recollections of what life was like growing up in Englewood, decades before the term "Chi-raq" was thrown into the urban vernacular, when her parents migrated to Chicago in the early 1950s and purchased a home in 1959. She grounds her stories in exciting childhood adventures, as well as the cultural happenings of the time, discussing such issues as Dr. Martin Luther King, race riots, and integration. She provides a glimpse into what the neighborhood was once like. Elaine has taught at City Colleges of Chicago and Roosevelt University, where she earned undergraduate and graduate Journalism degrees. Her book, and its universal theme, has been covered in local and national broadcast and print media. In her spare time, Elaine covers local and national film festivals, including Tribeca and the Chicago International Film Festival, and pens movie reviews forwww.filmmonthly.com. @englewoodelaine



TAKIN' PLACE

NY Premiere

6:30pm

Chicago's South Side is rarely portrayed in the media as a place of beauty and positive energy. Ravishingly photographed, TAKIN' PLACE colorfully captures the aura of the Washington Park and Englewood neighborhoods from the chaos of a joyous Fourth of July in the streets to girl talk in the intimate confines of a beauty salon. Director Dowlatshahi, whose career encompasses work for Al-Jazeera, National Geographic, and the Discovery Channel, takes a fly-onthe-wall approach to discovering everyday life and culture on the South Side in all its glorious diversity and complexity. Directed by Cyrus Dowlatshahi, USA, 2015, 84 min, documentary in English
