As Above, So Below

The 11th in the ongoing series of the Chicago screenings of the L.A. Rebellion touring film series, will continue on Thursday June 6 with a screening of a newly restored print of filmmaker Larry Clark’s  1973 feature film, As Above, So Below.

Recently rediscovered and considered by many to be one of the most “politically radical films of the L.A. Rebellion movement” Clark’s film spans several generations and decades as it chronicles the political consciousness awakening of young man from his childhood in Chicago during the mid-1940’s though his stint in the Marines to adulthood as a politicized radical.

The film has been compared to Ivan Dixons’ film version of Sam Greenlee’s incendiary novel The Spook Who Sat by the Door

And the filmmaker himself, Larry Clark, will be present for the screening and as well as for the Chicago L.A. rebellion screening (the final one for the series) of his feature film Passing Through on June 7 (More details about that screening to come soon)

And along with As Above, So Below, there will be a screening of Don Amis’ 1974 short film Ujamii Uhuru Schule (Swahili for Community Freedom School) which details a day-in-the-life portrait of an Afrocentric primary learning academy located in South Los Angeles that focuses "on the virtues of the three Rs — Respect, Righteousness and Revolution".  (Or The Good Old Days as I like to call it)

The screening starts at 7PM and will take place at the Block Cinema on the campus of Northwestern University located at 40 Arts Circle Drive in Evanston IL.

Northwestern University professor and curator of the L.A. Rebellion film series, Jacqueline Stewart, will introduce the films and conduct a Q and A with Clark afterward.

Attendance is FREE, but tickets will be distributed on a first come, first served basis, so get there as early as you can.
