Memory Chain

Memory Chain is a series of documentary shorts. Each installment features a cirkut or panoramic photo taken somewhere in Indiana between 1919 and 1930. These photographs portray individuals in face-to-face community. They represent a brief instant in the lives of individuals whose names are unknown to us and whose time on earth has since passed.

Remarkably, this flash of human experience has made its way to us and offers us a chance to consider our own times: how far we've come and perhaps how far we've wandered off.

Memory Chain is created, written, and narrated by Tom Roznowski. The Director is Susanne Schwibs. Editing and Post-production engineer is David Gonzales.

Memory Chain is made possible by grants from the Hollie and Anna Oakley Foundation, the Indiana Humanities Council, and the Indiana Arts Commission. Support is also provided by the Indiana Historical Society and the Vigo County Historical Society.
