'Reflections Unheard: Black Women In Civil Rights' Conversations + How To Host/Request A Screening Of The Film

"Reflections Unheard: Black Women In Civil Rights"

Clips below featuring director Nevline Nnaji discussing her feature documentary Reflections Unheard: Black Women in Civil Rights - a film that's traveling the film festival and film screening series circuit, and a film that you can request or host a screening for.Details on how you can do that can be found on the film's website HERE.

The film focuses on the marginalization of black women between the Black Power and Feminist ideologies of the 60s and 70s, up to the present day.

It recently screened at the New York African Diaspora International Film Festival's a month ago, which was followed by a brief Q&A with the film’s Director, Nevline Nnaji.

Nnaji completed the film in March of last year, and, before that, hosted a pre-release screening at Tulane University alongside MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry for her course “Black Women and Politics in the South.” The first clip below includes footage from the Q&A that followed that Tulane screening, with Harris-Perry and Nnaji, in which the filmmaker shares the hurdles she had to overcome when it came to copyright and institutional ownership of black images, while in production on the film

The second video, an hour-long conversation, includes a panel discussion that followed the international premiere of Reflections Unheard: Black Women in Civil Rights, at the London Feminist Film Festival last year. The conversation is moderated by Brenna Bhandar and features director Nnaji, Hayley A. Reid (a fellow documentary filmmaker) and Sunera Thobani (visiting fellow at LSE Gender Institute).

Nnaji says that she plans to continue traveling with the film to universities, festivals, and organizations all over the world, so it just might be coming to a theater near you. Although, you don't have to wait for it to come to you, because, again, you can request a screening of the film, or host a screening. All the necessary info on how to do that, as well as for more information about the film and other upcoming screenings, visit http://reflectionsunheardfilm.com/.

First, watch film trailer immediately below for a glimpse at what to expect. Underneath it, you'll find a piece of the Tulane Q&A with Harris-Perry, followed by the full discussion that came immediately after the film was screened at the LFFF in 2013:
