A Dream is What You Wake Up From

Dirs. Larry Bullard, Carolyn Johnson
1978, 50min, digital

 

Who has access to the American Dream? Dedicated to radical Afro-Cuban filmmaker Sara Gómez, this urgent, stylistically bold mix of documentary, fiction, and historical reenactment profiles three black families—at home, school, work, and community meetings—to illuminate the African-American struggle.

Your Children Come Back to You

Dir. Alile Sharon Larkin
1979, 27min, 16mm

 

One of the most distinctive voices to emerge from the LA Rebellion in black filmmaking, Alile Sharon Larkin illustrates the economic struggle of an African-American single mother from the point of view of her young daughter. Featuring cinematography by Charles Burnett. “If there’s any other film as tender as this one, I haven’t seen it.” — B. Ruby Rich
