Uprooted: A Grassroots Examination of the Politics of Migration is Deep Dish TV’s multiplatform (web, tv, dvd) media project that challenges the mainstream media’s ‘debate’ on immigration by exploring the causes & consequences of migration.
Uprooted delves into the intersections between migration, labor, women’s issues, xenophobia, the prison industrial complex, neoimperialism & more. It is a resource for activists & organizers.
Uprooted is collaborative. We have an open call for submissions. We also facilitate the production of media. Deep Dish has a distinguished history of distributing media made by & for social movements. We collect and curate media produced by the grassroots: that means organizers & independent media makers on the ground who are living & breathing these issues!
Submissions will be featured on the Uprooted blog and distributed online. A 10-part series of one hour programs will be curated from licensed submissions and commissioned work. The 10-part series will broadcast nationally on public access TV, LinkTV, Freespeech TV and DishNetwork. The 10-part series will be distributed to universities, libraries and community organizations. Screenings & exhibitions will also be coordinated internationally.
