Hey Bostonians... if you're not at all familiar with the work of black British filmmaker Isaac Julien, (we've highlighted some of his work on S&A, notably his allegorical snapshot of late 1970s London, Young Soul Rebels, which co-starred a young Sophie Okonedo, and the poetic documentary Looking For Langston), here's your chance to become familiar with the films of this contempary of other black British filmmakers previously discussed on S&A - notably John Akomfrah and Menelik Shabazz.

Hey Bostonians... if you're not at all familiar with the work of black British filmmaker Isaac Julien, (we've highlighted some of his work on S&A, notably his allegorical snapshot of late 1970s London, Young Soul Rebels, which co-starred a young Sophie Okonedo, and the poetic documentary Looking For Langston), here's your chance to become familiar with the films of this contempary of other black British filmmakers previously discussed on S&A - notably John Akomfrah and Menelik Shabazz.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Isaac Julien: Ten Thousand Waves, taking place in January at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, a lineup of Julien’s earlier films will screen for audiences, including 2001 Turner Prize–winners The Long Road to Mazatlán (1999) and Vagabondia (2000), as well as the aforementioned, Looking for Langston (1989).

As the program notes, Julien’s films relate experiences of black and gay identity, combining both visual and performing arts elements to create powerful narratives.

The event will take place on January 29th, 2012, with screenings beginning at 12 noon, and running through 5:30pm. Tickets are now available for purchase in advance, for those interested. And why wouldn't you be? Especially if you've never seen any of the man's work. These will be big screen screenings as well.

Julien founded the Sankofa Film and Video Collective, and was a founding member of Normal Films in 1991. He was a visiting professor at the Whitney Museum of American Arts, and most recently, he's had solo shows at the Pompidou Centre in ParisMoCA Miami and the Kerstner GesellschaftHanover.

Here's a trailer for Young Soul Rebels (1991), which was awarded the Semaine de la Critique prize at the Cannes Film Festival the same year:
