L.A. Rebellion: Creating a New Black Cinema - Jan/Feb Tour Dates In Philly, Toronto & NYC
2
LA Rebellion

We covered this retrospective, which began its tour in the fall of 2011, in LA; as I just learned, it was rebooted a few months ago, and continues to travel the country, with stops scheduled for Philadelphia, Toronto and in NYC; so those who live in those cities, you're strongly encouraged to make an effort to attend.

Representative works from UCLA Film & Television Archive's groundbreaking "L.A. Rebellion: Creating a New Black Cinema" exhibition will screen in select North American cities, showcasing new prints and restorations. A milestone in American cinema, the L.A. Rebellion began in the late 1960s when a number of promising African and African American students entered the UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television. From that first class through the late 1980s these filmmakers forged a unique and sustained alternative Black cinema practice in the United States. Their frequent collaborations with other students of color and engagement with cinemas and concerns of the Third World created fascinating, provocative and visionary films that have earned an impressive array of awards and accolades at festivals around the world, in addition to blazing new paths into the commercial market.

In total, 36 titles will be screened.

Our writers on the west coast, Brandon Wilson and Nijla Mumin, reviewed several of the films, and interviewed talent, for S&A. I'll likely repost all of them in the coming week, timed to coincide with the Philly, Toronto and NYC dates.

The overview and complete lineup speak for themselves, so click HERE to head over to the home site for the series.

More dates and venues will be added as the tour continues; Philly, get ready, because you're up next:

     
January 5 – January 26, 2013 Philadelphia, PA International House Philadelphia
January 31 – February 19, 2013 Toronto TIFF Cinematheque
February 2 – February 24, 2013 New York, NY Museum of the Moving Image
