On this last day of the New Voices in Black Cinema Festival (presented by ActNow Foundation and BAMcinematek) are some extra special treats as French hip-hop soul duo Les Nubians are present for the screening and Q&A of Joshua Atest Litle's The Furious Force of Rhymes (along with some other great potential guests). See the full schedule below. Tickets are available at: BAM.org/NewVoicesinBlackCinema

Day 3 was madly successful with the replay of The Tested, short film screenings that included Jerry Lamothe's The Tombs (with his hometown of Brooklyn truly representing!), the work-in-progress screening of Joshua Bee Alafia's Let's Stay Together to an extremely positive and uplifting crowd, and of course NVBC's 'New Black Classic' screening of Theodore Witcher's Love Jones, which is a MAJOR delight if you've never seen it on the big screen - the crowd roared during the opening credits and as Q&A moderator Warrington Hudlin noted (I'm paraphrasing) a largely Black audience commenting (as they often do!) throughout the film really makes it extra special.

In Our Heads About Our Hair (2012) 75min --  2pm
Directed by Hemamset Angaza
Khamit Kinks natural hair salon owner Anu Prestonia offers this refreshing perspective on black women’s hair—from the point of view of black women—while advocating for the acceptance of all hairstyle choices.

Hemamset Angaza and producers Anu Prestonia and Maitefa Angaza in person

Directors Lena Waithe, Nicole Franklin and Kristina Thomas will be joined on the panel by filmmaker Kobie Brown (From Fatherless to Fatherhood). Noted youth advocate and mentor Rev. Alfonso Wyatt also sits on the panel, which is moderated by Marcus Littles of HeyLittleBrother.org.

The Furious Force of Rhymes (2010) 84min -- 6:50pm
Directed by Joshua Atesh Litle
Spanning four continents and six countries, The Furious Force of Rhymes examines the impact of rap as transnational protest music with adherents as diverse as French Arabs, East German skinhead punks, and West African feminists. Each individual shares their story of how a movement born out of the
oppression of black Americans touched their lives.
Joshua Atesh Litle and Les Nubians in person
