Barbara O. Jones, whose legend would be formed with her role in Bush Mama, brings to life Haile Gerima's charged daydream of a woman activist in chains. Seething with the political current of the early 1970s, Child of Resistance provides great company for a second mid-length film screening tonight-Brick by Brick, which documents black residents of Washington, D.C. coming together to avoid being bought out of their homes.
Accompanying these two hard-hitting films are three shorts that capture the politics of place: O. Funmilayo Makarah's L.A. on My Mind, Melvonna Ballenger's Rain and Carroll Blue and Kristy Kang's The Dawn at My Back: Memoir of a Black Texas Upbringing. * contact the Venue listed below for ticketing information
