The LA Rebellion: Creating a New Black Cinema film series tour, which S&A has been on-top of since its debut at UCLA 2 years ago, continues its travels, this time, making a stop in Atlanta (GA) beginning this weekend, October 25 and running through November 24, 2013.

The ATL instalment of the series is sponsored by Emory University’s Department of Film and Media Studiesliquid blackness, for Georgia State University’s Department of Communicationand the Atlanta Film Festival, in association with UCLA Film & Television Archive and supported in part by grants from the Getty Foundation and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

The series is curated by Allyson Nadia Field, Jan-Christopher Horak, Shannon Kelley, and Jacqueline Stewart.

Atlanta will be the last city to host the tour, which comprises of ground-breaking films made by the “LA Rebellion” school of black independent cinema - the collective of filmmakers including the likes of Julie Dash, Haile Gerima, Charles Burnett, Larry Clark, and Billy Woodberry who were film students in Los Angeles in the 1970s.

The tour features seminal films like Dash’s Four Women and Daughters of the Dust and  Gerima’s Bush Mama among many other innovative short, experimental, and feature-length films.

Liquid Blackness, a newly launched research initiative on blackness and aesthetics of the Department of Communication at Georgia State University, will host “Conversations” with filmmakers, students, and scholars at local venues and coordinate an interactive social media experience.

All films will be presented at Emory University's White Hall, with the exception of the opening night, which will take place the Plaza Theatre.

All screenings are free of charge.
