ACTION! CINEMA AS CONNECTION PRESENTS ALIMA LEE & FRIENDS – PORTALS I: A GESTURE TOWARDS NEW BLACK FEMME SCREEN NARRATIVES

Saturday, October 13 at 8 PM

Doors 7:30 pm; FREE ADMISSION!

This free screening is part of ACTION! Cinema as Connection, a free series presenting political documentary films and workshops. Curated by Penelope Uribe-Abee, ACTION! is made possible with the support of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Program:

Portals I:                                                                                                                    a gesture towards new black femme screen narratives. (2018)

Portals are openings, specific entrées through which something might be viewed or moved:  elaborate and glamorous in of themselves — the destination is elevated by the threshold itself. In fantasy, portals operate as a symbol for cataclysmic change, the moment after which the protagonist’s worldview is not the same.

Alima Lee and Mandy Harris Williams present Portals I: the first dispatch in a series of short experimental documentary films that feature black women who challenge the narrative of how the world sees them. Featuring punk band, FUPU (Fuck U Pay Us), Artist/Educator Shani Peters, Stripper/Activist Gizelle Marie, and Filmmaker Ja’Tovia Gary.

Throughout this body of work, distinct attention is given to the inner dialogues of thought and the tactile experiences of women. Considered as portraits, her subjects do not reside in isolation, but move in conversation with their surroundings and with the interactive circuits of the filmmaker.
