The documentary of the Harrison Street area neighborhood in Elkhart, Indiana (“Our Italian Neighborhood”) has been completed, and will be available on DVD by June 15, 2011! It can be purchased online at www.StoriesRetold.com or at various local businesses (listed on the website). This Italian emigration experience is not unique to Elkhart, and if you are Italian (or even part Italian) you will be able to relate to the stories and experiences no matter where your family settled in America. Even if you’re not Italian, you will find yourself ordering spaghetti or pizza while you watch!
The documentary includes conversations with 20 people who grew up in our around that neighborhood. During production, all of the people were asked the same set of questions, each was interviewed separately, and none of them had heard or seen the interviews of the others. It is amazing to hear the commonality of their responses!
There are 7 DVDs available in the set, all of which can be purchased separately or in “packages” to keep the price low. Visit www.StoriesRetold.com for more information and to make a purchase. Also, encourage your friends to do the same since the production of future documentaries depends upon your support through purchases. Thank you!!
