The documentary form is at its essential home when documenting resistance and a common form of resistance is rooted in questions of community land ownership. The concept of community land has long been at conflict with modern urban development, most especially when connected to social justice and race relations issues.

The notion of capturing the identity of place, and the connection of place to a people and a culture, will be examined in this panel discussion with filmmakers Scott Hamilton Kennedy and Sara Roque.
