“This exuberant celebration of African American women and their achievements features interviews with Angela Davis, June Jordan and Alice Walker. Within the context of the civil rights, Black power and feminist movements, the trio reassess how women such as Rosa Parks and Fannie Lou Hamer revolutionized American society. A stirring chapter in African American history, highlighted by music from Prince, Janet Jackson, the Neville Brothers and the Staple Singers.”

Event Description
Because the ceremony must be found to give life to our poetic filmmaking dreams we are convening this “Production” workshop-playdate. This is a space to explore the foundational document in filmmaking – the script. We will work with scene’s from Julie Dash’s script and film Daughters of the Dust. In this conversation-workshop-playdate looking at the conventions of the film script, how some black feminists have used the form of the script and explore what form of blueprint/script and other documents might be useful for a black feminist approach to filmmaking.

black feminism the frame, not the limit
