Passing Through
L.A. Rebellion

Mar 15

(Larry Clark, USA, 1977, 35mm, 111 min)

New 35mm print!

Friday, Mar 15 at 08:00PM

Larry Clark's poignant film follows an African American saxophonist, recently released from prison, who struggles to preserve his artistic integrity as he awakens to racial consciousness via encounters with the elderly "Poppa" (played by veteran actor Muse). The film's score, arranged by Horace Tapscott, features music by Eric Dolphy, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane and Sun Ra, along with a live performance by the Pan African People's Arkestra.  

"Potent underground L.A. neorealist treatise." LA Weekly

When It Rains
(Charles Burnett, USA, 1995, 16mm, 13min)
"On New Year's Day, a man tries to help a woman pay her rent and learns a lesson in connecting with others in the community. Ayuko Babu, founding director of the Pan African Film Festival of Los Angeles, assumes the lead role in a pleasingly empathic reading."- Shannon Kelley
