Q&A featuring multiple filmmakers

 
Black 14

Dir. Darius Clark Monroe
2018, 15min, DCP

 

In 1969, a group of 14 black football players at the University of Wyoming took a stand against racism in college athletics—and paid the price for speaking out. A tribute to the fearlessness of those who paved the way for today’s activist athletes.

 
Glucose

Dir. Jeron Braxton
2017, 13min, Digital

 

A hallucinatory meditation on free will, consciousness, and black identity writ in a hyper-kinetic, day-glo barrage of 8-bit-style video game animation.

 
 
 
Boneshaker

Dir. Nuotama Bodomo
2013, 13min, Digital

 

Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) stars in this dreamily poetic snapshot of an African family adrift in the Louisiana bayous gorgeously shot on 16mm.

 
 
Hair Wolf

Dir. Mariama Diallo
2018, 12min, DCP

 

There’s something strange in the neighborhood salon… She’s white, she wants braids, and she will touch your black hair.

 
 
 
Mulignans

Dir. Shaka King
2015, 5min, Digital

 

A biting, spot-on satire of gangster film machismo and racism set on a Bed-Stuy stoop.

 
 
Piu Piu

Dir. Naima Ramos Chapman
2018, 10min, Digital

 

A restless young woman yearns to escape the confines of romance in order to find her superpower.
