Additional Information

This major film exhibition by the UCLA Film & Television Archive celebrates an historic artistic movement of Los Angeles-based African American and African filmmakers who met at UCLA from the 1960s to 1980s and worked to forge a cinema that would be responsive to black communities. The Archive will present more than 50 film and video works, most of which have never screened theatrically, many in new or restored prints, and often with the filmmaker present.

'Medea' (1973): Caldwell's Project One at UCLA, 'Medea' is a collage film that explores the information that permeates into a child before it is born.

'I & I: An African Allegory' (1979): Weaving experimental, dramatic and documentary styles, Caldwell’s 'I & I' is a moving meditation on reciprocity.

'Child of Resistance' (1972): Inspired by a dream Gerima had after seeing Angela Davis handcuffed on television, 'Child of Resistance' is an abstract and symbolic film that follows a woman imprisoned as a result of her fight for social justice.
