Filmmobile Presents: Race & Space V: Women of the La Rebellion
KAOS Network
6:30pm - 9:30pm
Beginning in the late 1960s, a number of promising African and African American students entered the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, recruited under a concerted initiative by C.Z. Wilson to be more responsive to various communities of color. From that first class through the late 1980s, and continuing well beyond their college dayts, to now, these filmmakers came to represent the first sustained undertaking to forge an alternative Black Cinema practice in the United States. Tonight’s program includes a short films by Ijeoma Iloputaife, Barbara McCullough, Alile Sharon Larkin and Storme (Bright) Sweet.

The Public School & Alpine Recreation Center (3 minute walk apart)

Left in LA is a one-day feminist, trans, queer, anti-capitalist event. Left in LA will be a gathering of creative, inspiring, and political activists/organizers on the gender peripheries of the left. While the morning workshops are geared for those who are just starting out, this day is meant for people who already identify as "on the left." We will also be centering discussion on non-binary and femme folks and their experiences.

Action! presents Nobel Nok Dah & films from Ethnocine Collective
Echo Park Film Center
7:30pm - 10pm
Nobel Nok Dah offers an intimate view into the lives of three refugee women from Burma, whose migratory paths cross in Thailand and eventually meet when they resettle to central New York. Drawing upon methods of feminist oral history and ethno-fiction, the film traces glimmers of subjectivity that complicate any singular narrative of the refugee experience. As camera movements follow the textures of everyday life and work, a weave of sensorial fragments immerse audiences in women's narratives of self, place, and belonging. SCREENS WITH 2 OTHER FILMS. SEE LINK FOR DETAILS!
