Join Carnegie Museum of Art and 90.5 WESA for the premiere of "No Place but Home," a documentary short by Ryan Loew and Matthew Newton that examines Braddock-based filmmaker Tony Buba’s storied career, as told in his own words.

For more than four decades, filmmaker Tony Buba has chronicled the good, bad, and absurd in his hometown of Braddock, Pennsylvania, establishing an unmistakable filmography that foregrounds the plight of the working class while defying simple classification.

After the premiere, Buba presents a selection of his films, including Betty’s Corner Café (1976), Washing Walls with Mrs. G. (1980), Mill Hunk Herald (1981), Fade Out (1998), Ode to a Steeltown (2007), and a never-before-seen short. Following the screenings, Buba discusses his films and answers audience questions.

The Double Exposure Series, part of Carnegie Museum of Art's Time-Based Media Project, presents contemporary perspectives on pioneers of the past. The series features artists, preservationists, curators, and scholars discussing the legacy of avant-garde film and video of the 1960s–1980s, including works in CMOA's permanent collection and beyond. With funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Time-Based Media Project is a multifaceted initiative focused on stewarding the museum’s film, video, audio, and computer-based artworks into the future, as well as catalyzing research and discussion in the field.
