Stephen Smith

University of North Carolina Press

Stephen Smith wants you to hear history. He’s made excellent work across a broad spectrum. He produced an aural portrait of the playwright August Wilson; he uncovered war crimes in Kosovo. Some of his best docs, and those he most loves to make, explore twentieth-century history. Stephen traces the short life story of recorded sound, this magic we take for granted. And through his own pieces, like “Song Catcher, Frances Densmore of Red Wing”; “Remembering Jim Crow”; and “White House Tapes: The President Calling,” Stephen shows how radio can blast us into another time, “past the rope-line of textbook history.”
