L.A. Rebellion

MARCH 124, WEEKENDS (FRIDAYSSUNDAYS)
Major support by Humanities Washington

Join us in March 2013 for four weekends of powerful film experiences, shared stories and in-depth conversation about race, cinema and history during L.A. Rebellion.

At a unique time and place in American history, a critical mass of filmmakers of African descent came to the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television to make movies and produced a rich, innovative, sustained, and intellectually rigorous body of work. Occasionally called the "Los Angeles School of Black Filmmakers," this group of mostly unheralded artists created a unique cinematic landscape, over the course of two decades in the 1960s and 70s, as university students worked, mentored one another and passed the torch. The group's significance is far-reaching, with their emergence set in the aftermath of the Watts Uprising and against the backdrop of the continuing Civil Rights Movement and the escalating Vietnam War.

They came from Watts. They came from New York City. They came from throughout America or crossed an ocean from Africa. The filmmakers of the L.A. Rebellion achieved excellence while realizing a new possibility for "Black" cinema, one that explored and related to the real lives of Black communities in the U.S. and worldwide.

Special thanks to our Humanities Advisors Tamara Cooper and Ralina Joseph. Presented in association with UCLA Film & Television Archive and supported in part by grants from the Getty Foundation and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The series is curated by Allyson Nadia Field, Jan-Christopher Horak, Shannon Kelley and Jacqueline Stewart.
