Description

SPIRITS OF REBELLION (ZEINABU IRENE DAVIS, 2016, 1 H 40 MIN, DOCUMENTARY)

Director Zeinabu Davis will be in attendance for this event

'Screening followed by discussion + Q&A with director Zeinabu irene Davis, facilitated by members of the Black Cinema Collective.'

ABOUT THE FILM:

SPIRITS OF REBELLION provides the context and history of a group of filmmakers who came out of the UCLA film school with an agenda. Though they were of very diverse origins and with divergent ideas, these media artists shared a desire to create an alternative to the dominant American mode of cinema. The hope of this group was to realize a cinema of informed, relevant and unfettered black expression. The LA Rebellion filmmakers collectively imagined and created a black cinema against the conventions of Hollywood and Blaxploitation films by attending to the quiet moments of everyday life in their communities, and paying homage to the dignity of their characters.

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR:

Zeinabu irene Davis is an independent filmmaker and Professor of Communication at University of California, San Diego. SPIRITS OF REBELLION is her latest release and won the African Oscar for Best Diaspora Documentary at the African Movie Academy in Nigeria. Recently, SPIRITS... also won Best Feature Documentary and an Audience Award for Best Film from the BlackStar Film Festival in Philadelphia.
