When We Free – Film Teaser from J. Roxanne on Vimeo.

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. Black Feminist Film School is an initiation journey that will transform all involved toward the possibility of love and light amplified through film.

I invite you to join in and support in the ways that make sense for you. We are now accepting applications for our Summer Session. The application is due May 15th. The first in person session is the weekend of June 6-8, 2014..

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
