L.A. REBELLION

Sat 13 Jan 13:30 Rio Cinema, Dalston

‘L.A. Rebellion’, coined by Black Film Review’s Clyde Taylor, refers to a critical mass of American filmmakers of African origin or descent brought together at the UCLA Film School in the late ‘60s. They envisioned an alternative to Hollywood, a new independent cinema sensitive to the real lives of Black communities and interrogating the onscreen representation of Black people in the United States - a revolutionary act for its time, with an enduring legacy.

This event showcases this body of work, which features Charles Burnett (Killer of Sheep, To Sleep With Anger) followed by a panel discussion including Dr. Clive Nwonga (LSE).
