Chameleon Street

As Tambay said three weeks ago here in his item about the recent London BFI screening of Wendell B. Harris' 1989 film Chameleon Street...you haven't seen it yet?

I agree with him 100%. Seriously? You claim to be so serious about black films and Harris' film is one of the most fascinating and unique independent black films ever made. And yet you have't seen it? 

Why sir! You are a fraud!

But seriously, it's a truly incredible film and if you're in the Chicago area, you'll have an opportunity to see it soon when the Black Cinema House in Chicago will screen the film on Saturday March 9th starting at 7PM.

The film will be introduced by Michael B. Gillespie - Assistant Professor of Film at the School of Interdisciplinary Arts, School of Film, and Department of African American Studies at Ohio University; he'll also lead a discussion afterward.

Professor Gillespie wiill discuss Harris and how "the independent origins of the film continue to challenge our understanding of black film. He will also discuss the exhibition/reception history of Chameleon Street to demonstrate the ongoing need to think about the idea of black film in more challenging ways. The opposition that the film experienced serves as a poignant example of when a category becomes a limitation."

That is so true since Chameleon Street defies categorization.

To reserve a seat for the screening (since seating is limited) go HERE.

Here's a film clip:
