  Black Cinema 1: Image and Mirage, Meaning and Identity

Friday, April 8th
PCC Cascade Campus | 705 N Killingsworth | Terrell Hall Auditorium, Room 122
Doors at 7pm, Films at 7*:30pm*
$8 Suggested at the door, but no one turned away for lack of funds.

​Attempting to engage with both the experimental films of black artists 
addressing race and the African-American community here in Portland, we 
are partnering with the BCC: Brown Hall to create programming that looks 
to contribute to larger movements towards equality and an end to 
state-supported brutality.

Included in the program is, /Black Bullets/, which pays tribute to the 
act of revolt. Inspired by the Haitian revolution, it was filmed on The 
Citadel, a mountaintop fortress that has become a sign of freedom and an 
icon of Haiti. While /Reckless Eyeballing /is a hypnotic inspection of 
sexual desire, racial identity, and film history. In Cauleen Smith’s 
experimental biography, marginal representations of black female 
identity are transposed on images and locations spanning vast spaces, 
places, and time. /American Hunger /functions as an audio-visual 
meditation on the constructs surrounding African-American cultural 
identity while simultaneously examining an identity that spans hundreds 
of years, and thousands of miles. And /Medea /is a collage film that 
explores the information that permeates into a yet unborn child. Sounds 
provided by Jonny Cool Stargazer.

This series is supported in part by the Multnomah County Cultural 
Coalition and the Arts Equity Grant with the Regional Arts & Culture
