still from Charles Burnett's Killer of Sheep (1977)

This fall the UCLA Film & Television Archive will celebrate the filmmakers of the L.A. Rebellion in the retrospective L.A. Rebellion: Creating a New Black Cinema.  All the details have not been released yet, but mark your calendars for the one-day symposium that will take place on November 12 at UCLA.  BFC/A director Michael Martin is scheduled to participate.

The UCLA Film& Television Archive’s director, Jan-Christopher Horak, has written a few blog posts on collecting related films and organizing the program.  You can find them HERE, HERE and HERE.

We’ll keep you posted about the final program.

About BFC/A
