Portrait of Jason

Shirley Clarke
1967, 105min, DCP

 

In one of the simplest and most radical documentaries ever made, raconteur, hustler, singer, and man about town Jason Holliday holds court in front of Shirley Clarke’s camera for nearly two hours. In a mix of confession, fabrication, plea for pity, and act of defiance, Jason describes the inner and outer life of a gay black drifter making his way through mid-century America.

 
Syvilla: They Dance to Her Drum

Dir. Ayoka Chenzira
1979, 22min, digital

 

This tribute to innovative dancer-choreographer Syvilla Fort sheds light on a pioneering black woman artist who influenced a generation of dancers.
