Synopsis

“L.A. Rebellion” refers to a critical mass of American filmmakers of African origin or descent, brought together at UCLA film school in the seventies, who envisioned a new independent black cinema sensitive to the real lives of Black communities and interrogating the onscreen representation of Black people in the United States: A revolutionary act of representation for its time.


This event showcases this body of work, which features UCLA alumni Julie Dash (Daughters of the Dust, The Rosa Parks Story) and Charles Burnett (Killer of Sheep, To Sleep With Anger).


Followed by a panel discussion including Dr. Clive Nwonga (LSE).
