Project produces and distributes its own documentary films
and videos, and provides facilities, training and other support
for independent producers, artists, activists and organizations
working in video and other electronic media. Its purpose is to work
towards democratizing access to the media, and to provide the resources
necessary to put the power of media in the hands of individuals
and organizations working to further important social, political
and artistic purposes. EP coordinates and
supports progressive organizing efforts, and operates a media center with access to video
and computer facilities in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Founder and Oscar-winning
documentarian, Barbara Trent, speaks at universities and other institutions
to help people become more critical
consumers of the media and to shed new light on the social and political
issues facing us today. EP also operates the Old Oak Homestead as a center for learning and practicing sustainable living methods.
