Documentary on LaPorte, Indiana: Upcoming Screenings

For Jason Bitner (Found Magazine, Cassette From My Ex), it all began with the discovery of 18,000 photographs in the back of a local diner in LaPorte, Indiana. From there, he not only published a book… but he also successfully raised over $12,000 to fund a documentary film, focusing on LaPorte.

And here’s a little bit of info: the editor that Jason’s working with, Joe Beshenkovsky, won an Emmy last year for his work on an episode of This American Life. Nice!

The film premiers at a festival in Indianapolis, at the Museum of Art. And there are a few screenings in (of course) LaPorte, Indiana as well. I’m sure more dates will crop up, so visit the film’s website for up-to-date info and future screening times.

  1. Man, this looks fantastic. As soon as you hear about it coming to Chicago, let me know!

  2. I will definitely spread the word when it comes to Chicago. As a backer on Kickstarter… I’m not sure if I’ll be among the folks who get tickets for the LaPorte screenings… but if I do, I’ll be tempted to make the trek out there.
