Race & Space in Los Angeles V: The Women of the LA Rebellion
August 4, 2017 @ 6:30 pm – 10:00 pmFree
LOS ANGELES– In continuing the series on Race & Space in Los Angeles, this installment turns its focus towards the women filmmakers of the LA Rebellion. Beginning in the late 1960s, a number of promising African and African American students entered the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, recruited under a concerted initiative by C.Z. Wilson to be more responsive to various communities of color. From that first class through the late 1980s, and continuing well beyond their college days, to now, these filmmakers came to represent the first sustained undertaking to forge an alternative Black Cinema practice in the United States. Tonight’s program includes short films by Ijeoma Iloputaife, Barbara McCullough, Alile Sharon Larkin and Stormé (Bright) Sweet. Special thanks to program partners California Humanities, the Hugh M. Hefner Moving Image Archive at USC, KAOS Network and LA Freewaves. FREE EVENT! This project is made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit www.calhum.org.
