FREE FILM : USA will be coming through Kansas City. We are so excited to host them and support their cross country project.
They will arrive sometime on August 20th and will head to other parts of America on August 22nd.
This is your chance to be a part of something big. So, dust off any old 35mm film camera, come and pick up a roll of film photograph what your America means to you. It may mean family, friends, city icons, your spiritual journey, your personal life journey, the city, the country, food, anything that you feel would fit your idea of what this country is to you.
When you arrive at the All Souls parking lot look for the the airstream. Then, fill out a little bit of paper work, pay a small shipping fee if you want your film back, because, of course you do. Go out and shoot between Tuesday the 20th and Thursday the 22nd, bring the film back to Free Film : USA. They will process your film then choose images for the final exhibition to be held in New York. Your name will follow your images.

a conceptual photography project distributing and processing 35mm film across the country for free
Departing New York City at the beginning of August and returning in the middle of November, the FREE FILM team will travel by road with converted mobile darkroom Airstream trailer to 15-20 cities across the country to distribute and process rolls of 35mm black and white film for free to anyone interested in participating in the project. Given a due date and the prompt phrase ‘red white and blue,’ participating photographers will have the opportunity to shoot their roll as an expression of what that means to them — the words, the phrase, the place, the dream, the reality.
Whether the photographer takes this opportunity to focus on their unique personal experiences that shape their life in America, or chooses to interpret the prompt more broadly by focusing on the tone, concept and connotations of the phrase ‘red, white and blue’, the end product will be an incredibly sincere amalgamation of different view points, forever saving these two short months of the USA in black and white film.
