A sequel to the sold out programs of the same name that took place in 2014 and 2016, Echo Park Film Center will project five short 16mm films about race and space in Los Angeles from the UCLA and USC film archives, this time focused on African Americans in the city. We’ll show the much-loved film Felicia (1965) again, which tells the story of an amazing young woman growing up in Watts in the 1960s and was recently named to the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress. We will also re-screen a rare documentary about a subject who identifies as neither straight nor gay, neither male nor female. New films to the program include a documentary about Venice shot by a UCLA student in 1968; an Academy Award shortlisted documentary about a man living in a makeshift encampment near Chavez Ravine, shot by a USC student in 1970; and a documentary about an Afrocentric community school in South Central from 1974. Introduction + discussion by Dr. Marsha Gordon (North Carolina State University). Curated by Dr. Marsha Gordon, Dr. Allyson Nadia Field (U Chicago), + Dino Everett (USC), who will also project.
