Black Radical Imagination

Filmmaker and programmer in residence Amir George of Chicago's Black Cinema House, which I previously profiled HEREand Los Angeles based curator Erin Christovale, are jointly presenting a screening of short films they call Black Radical Imagination: A Futurist Film Showcase next week in Los Angeles.

The screening will consist of screenings by various filmmakers, including George himself, along with films by Akosua Adoma Owusu, Adebukola Bodurin, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Anansi Knowbody.

And, as you might be saying, what is a Black Radical Imagination Futurist Film Showcase?

Well, according to George and Christovale, it is designed to "invoke a futurist aesthetic of the black image on screen. The visual pieces delve into the worlds of video art, film animation, narrative storytelling, and new media. Each artist contributes their own vision of a free changing world in a post modern society."

They go even further to add that: "The screening will include a roundabout dialogue with the audience members and featured filmmakers to further ponder black radical imagination. These conversations are set in place in order to shift the way in which our identity is defined on screen and how these stories affect our ever-changing global culture."

The screening will take place on Saturday February 16th starting at 7PM, at the Papillion Institiute of Art, located at 1835 S. Main Street in L.A.
