Appalshop@40: Classics from the Collection is a television series on the KET Kentucky Channel showcasing some of the best film work produced since Appalshop began as a training program in 1969. The series is being repeated on Sundays at 11 pm and Saturdays at 10 am. Click here (www.appalshop.org/tvseries) for a complete listing and schedule.
Featuring a variety of characters, topics, film styles, and production dates, Appalshop@40 reflects both the place-specific nature and universality of Appalshop media work. The films in the series include some of Appalshop’s earliest productions (Coal Miner: Frank Jackson and In Ya Blood) as well as a series on the history of the region (Strangers and Kin, Long Journey Home and Beyond Measure) that was made in the 1980s/early 1990s. A number of the individual films have been preserved and remastered as part of the work of the Appalshop Archive.
