Grey Area

Dir. Monona Wali
1982, 38min, 16mm

 

Monona Wali’s vigorously experimental UCLA thesis film deploys a complex meta-narrative strategy as it follows a young African-American news reporter whose life and art collide when she takes to the streets of Watts to make a film about the black community.

 
A Different Image

Dir. Alile Sharon Larkin
1982, 51min, 16mm

 

A black art student sets out to reclaim her body and self-worth from Western patriarchal beauty standards in this groundbreaking work by Alile Sharon Larkin, shot by fellow LA Rebellion trailblazer Charles Burnett.

 
 
 
Illusions

Dir. Julie Dash
1982, 34min, 16mm

 

Julie Dash (Daughters of the Dust) explores race and representation in World War II-era Hollywood via the story of a black movie studio executive passing as white and the African-American singer she hires to dub the voice of a white actress. What plays out is a profound, haunting deconstruction of Hollywood’s power to shape racial mythologies.

A blast of lo-fi cool from the 80s underground, the debut feature from Allison Anders is an offbeat road movie that travels from LA to Mexico during the waning days of the West Coast punk scene.
