Documentary ‘Hometown’ set for Tuesday showing

TERRE HAUTE — Tom Roznowski’s documentary “Hometown: A Journey through Terre Haute” is scheduled to be shown Tuesday to celebrate the end of Indiana State University’s Community Semester Series called “Our Town.”

The showing is set for 7:30 p.m. University Hall Theater.

The documentary, for which Roznowski received a local Emmy nomination in 2005, will be followed by a discussion by Roznowski and the documentary director, Susanne Schwibs.

Roznowski is a writer and performer whose work in music and media reflects his fascination with everyday life. A lifelong observer of the American experience, he created the “Hometown” series, which encompasses more than 450 episodes airing on radio station WFIU. His writing and appearances in three public television specials have resulted in three Emmy nominations and a 2012 Golden Eagle Award from the Council on International Nontheatrical Events.

Roznowski’s albums of original music have garnered five star reviews in Maverick Magazine and extensive radio play in both the United States and Europe.

During the evening, one ISU student with the most consistent attendance at Community Semester events will win a $100 Barnes & Noble gift certificate. John Murray, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, will offer concluding remarks, including an announcement of next year’s theme.

Photography works of students in Fran Lattanzio’s ARTS 235 class will also be displayed. Each student selected one building downtown to photograph, capturing the identity of the building.

The evening will conclude with a public reception in the University Hall Atrium. Admission is free.

The presentation is being co-sponsored by the ISU Center for Community Engagement and WFIU.
