This Saturday, Chicago Film Archive, in collaboration with the Jazz Institute of Chicago, will present JAZZ AND THE L.A. REBELLION at Chicago Filmmakers.
The L.A. Rebellion refers to a new generation of black filmmakers who studied at the UCLA Film School from the late 60s to the late 80s and created a Black Cinema that was an alternative to classical Hollywood cinema. The body of work produced by these filmmakers maintained a consistent focus on the African American experience and black artistic life.
Also undergirding many of the films that came out of this movement was the influence of Jazz. JAZZ AND THE L.A. REBELLION is a collection of three essential short films by filmmakers Charles Burnett, Julie Dash, and Ben Caldwell, presented as part of the Jazz Institute of Chicago's 50th anniversary.
Total runtime is 88 minutes and tickets are just $8. Follow the link in bio to purchase! 12/14 @ 7:00 PM
