For twenty-five years, the national satellite network Deep Dish TV has functioned as a nerve center for media makers reporting on—and from—the front lines of social struggle. It has developed innovative strategies that enable it to act as a clearing house for hundreds of hours of movement-generated, grassroots film and television, creating a network of producers and distribution nodes comprised of public access stations, community centers, union halls, satellite TV channels, and online venues. This program presents excerpts from two new series: Waves of Change explores global community media as a form of resistance to commercial culture; Behind the Bars, the fifth installment of the new series DIY Media: Movement Perspectives on Critical Moments, examines the "culture of incarceration" in the U.S. and features The Last Graduation, about the tragic end of college education in New York prisons, and Lockdown U.S.A, which asks why the U.S. has the largest prison population in the world. Presentations by Brian Drolet, Director, Deep Dish TV, DeeDee Halleck and Victoria Moldonado (Waves of Change), Mark Read (Behind the Bars) and Deep Dish media makers.
