Home Movie Day + Modernism Week Teaser Reel
November 1, 2020 - March 22, 2021
2019 marked the first ever HMD in Palm Springs, CA. It was a great event with lots of community participation and amazing support from our LA friends. We thought of it as a practice-run for 2020, when we hoped to partner more closely with Modernism Week (Feb 15-21) and local libraries and historical societies. This short teaser reel, which we will be pushing out on social media with the assistance of our local cultural center/independent movie theatre and the PS Public Library, features footage from the California desert and gives viewers a sense of the HMD mission.
