In the 1970s, Chicago journalist and artist Anda Korsts helped pioneer the guerrilla television movement, and worked on a series of media exposés as part of the national video collective Top Value Television (TVTV) and founded Videopolis, a Chicago organization that put video in the hands of everyday people. She also produced hundreds of tapes, many in collaboration with makers around the country, including a groundbreaking television series called It's a Living, inspired by Studs Terkel's Working. The event features videos and television clips from across Korsts's career and a discussion of her continuing legacy today.
