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.
