A Word: Lights, Camera, Revolution
Friday, 12 November
Decades before Moonlight, Black Panther, or anything from Spike Lee, Black film artists worked through and around the studio system to bring their visions to the big screen. Now the Black Film Archive has brought together classics from 1915 to 1979. Its creator Maya Cade joins Jason Johnson on A Word to talk about the importance of African Americans connecting with movies from the past.
Guest: Maya Cade, creator of Black Film Archive and audience development specialist for the Criterion Collection
