TEDxPhilly - Tanya Hamilton - Night Catches Us

TEDxPhilly receives a behind-the-scenes look at Tanya Hamilton's highly anticipated December release, Night Catches Us. Hamilton explains the connection between her rearing and the movie's setting. Beginning her career telling stories through painting, Tanya moved to filmmaking and writing. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, Hamilton's first feature-length film, Night Catches Us, is a study of he black community surrounding the Black Panther movement in 1970s Philadelphia. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPhilly, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPhilly event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
