Tony Buba's 50 year-long practice of filmmaking in Braddock and North Braddock honors an ever-evolving neighborhood of individuals whose lives tell the stories of how industry and economic injustices shape our region. Buba’s films and archives lift up the humanity of the many ways generations of residents who live, work, and organize in Braddock continue to imagine possibilities of more just futures.

Bring your friends and your neighbors as we honor Tony!
