Chicago Hearing Summary with Extended Features

DVD Released February, 2011

 

The 66-minute Chicago Hearing Summary with Extended Features was released in February 2011. In eight video clips, we summarized the four and one-half hour event and added music, animations, maps, photographs and video footage to illustrate the realities that were verbally reported at the Hearing. We plan to distribute the printed final report and a Summary DVD with Extended Features to members of Congress, other government officials and the mainstream media. You can embed these videos in your website or web page by going to the experiencecatcher channel on You Tube [www.youtube.com/user/experiencecatcher].
