Black X: African Diaspora Experimental Film Series (Pt 1)- Short Films + Q&A
The afternoon portion of the Black X marathon of African Diaspora Experimental Film features many short films, a Q&A with the filmmakers and a reception.

Full Day Pass for only $5 more available at:

'Dialectic Dialation'
(Tocarra Thomas, 2009, 4 min.)
A mesmerizing, formal abstraction based on the mechanics of human perception.

'Rope Tricks'
(Tocarra Thomas, 2008, 4 min.)
A beautifully filmed, but disturbing allegory about repression and self-liberation.

'ReProgram: Episodes 1-10'
(Shani Peters, 21 min.)
A group of 10 videos which unites characters from The Cosby Show and Good
Times with members of the Black Panther Party. The sitcom families, both icons
of economic extremes within the black community, are inexplicably united as
one family. These figures, both fictional and historical, interact in "episodes" that
loosely relate to the Panthers' Ten Point Program, which called attention to issues
such as healthcare, housing, and police brutality.

'Reckless Eyeballing'
(Christopher Harris, 2004, 14 min.)
Taking its name from the Jim Crow-era of black criminals staring at white
women, this hand-processed, optically-printed amalgam reframes desire by way
of everything from D.W. Griffith to Foxy Brown and Angela Davis.

(Ina Diane Archer, 2004, 3 min.)
"RW" creates a dreamscape comprised of characters from American gangster
movies, black musicals, and 1950's era black women that questions the nature of
racial identity.

'Hattie McDaniel'
(Ina Diane Archer, 2002, 6 min.)
A media collage meditating on the legacy and cultural meaning of the academy
award winning actress Hattie McDaniel.

'X  The Baby Cinema'
(Robert Banks, 1992, 4 min.)
A media collage commentary on the legacy of Malcolm X and the
commercialization of it through the film by Spike Lee.

'MPG: Motion Picture Genocide'
(Robert Banks, 1997, 4 min.)
A visually stunning, hand-painted, film collage responding to the violence toward
women and people of color as depicted in the mainstream cinema.

'The Fullness of Time'
(Cauleen Smith, 2008. 52 min.)
In Smith's groundbreaking science fiction allegory, A "sister from another planet"
is sent to earth to explore the terrain and learn our ways. In the process, she must
make sense of the passage of time, the enormity of loss, and the new landscapes
of New Orleans.

Panel Discussion with directors Cauleen Smith, Tocarra Thomas, Shani Peters, Ina Archer, Christopher Harris. Moderated by Bill Jennings, Professor Radio, Television, Film at Hofstra
