Planet Takeout Launches!
Fortunes, altars, crab rangoon, stories of immigration and neighborhood change…Planet Takeout is a participatory documentary project about the Chinese takeout as a vital cultural crossroads in Boston and beyond. The project experiments with an innovative interface, using immersive videos as pathways to personal stories and collections of media contributed by participants across the world. The project is produced by Val Wang, Kelly Creedon, WGBH, AIR and Zeega. Planet Takeout is part of Localore, a nationwide production of AIR in collaboration with Zeega, with principal funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
