When We Free: A Meditation on Faith and Liberation
Saturday August 1, 2015 4pm-7pm
Full Frame Theater, Durham, NC
Thank you for making this event a success! We sold out of tickets in less than a week. This is our first ritual screening. If you would like to know more about how it went and what exactly IS a “ritual screening” please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When We Free is a fiction film about a recently freed black community’s first camp meeting after emancipation. This revival takes place on a camp site and draws people from near and far all searching for one thing or another. In particular, they search for balance between the spiritual traditions they have brought across the Atlantic and those learned in the New World while in bondage.

The Poetics of Black Feminist Film (School) – Summer Session
Black Feminist Film School Summer Session is the answer to a prayer whispered by those who believe another world is possible as long as we can imagine it. It is an answer, a vision, a liberation.

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
