A Different Image + Selected Short Films
L.A. Rebellion

Mar 03

(Allie Sharon Larkin, United States, 1982, 16mm, 112 min)

Sunday, Mar 03 at 08:00PM

Anyone who's ever prayed for a film to drive a wedge in outdated Hollywood portrayals of womenand particularly of African-American women in a white-dominated societywill be as liberated by A Different Image, as the film's protagonist Alana builds a self-image that defies men's ideas of pursuit. Striking at cultural barriers to women's expression through an uplifting portrait of a lady, A Different Image quietly raises the specter of any individual's ability to bust out of cultural expectations.

Also showing are Monona Wali's Grey Area, which collages the philosophies of a poor community and of a "socially responsible" corporation; Zeinabu Irene Davis's Cycles and Barbara McCullough's Water Ritual #1: An Urban Rite of Purification.

WATER RITUAL #1: AN URBAN RITE OF PURIFICATION is preservation funded with a grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation's Avant-Garde Masters Grant Program funded by The Film Foundation.

Tonight's program is part of our month-long series L.A. Rebellion. Read More >>
