Kannapolis: A Moving Portrait

In this new project commissioned by Duke Performances, acclaimed composer, singer, and violinist, Jenny Scheinman invites us into the captivating visual world of Depression-era filmmaker, H. Lee Waters. From 1936-42, Waters documented over 118 towns in the Carolinas, Virginia, and Tennessee in a collection he called “Movies of Local People.” Waters travelled from town to town, filming people going about their lives in the small town South, then worked with local movie theaters to screen his silent shorts, inviting his subjects for a wholly novel experience—to see themselves on the silver screen.
