Split/Screen: February

A Focus on African American Women Filmmakers

The February edition of Split/Screen has a focus on African American women filmmakers, highlighting seminal films from the 1980s and current films from the past two years. Kathleen Collins’s semi-autobiographical feature LOSING GROUND from 1982 is considered by many to be revolutionary. It is certainly quite brilliant, erudite and funny. Another classic from the same year, the short film ILLUSIONS by Julie Dash (Daughters of the Dust), also with a female protagonist, tackles the invisibility of African Americans in the Hollywood system. Also included are two films, a feature and a short, by first generation African Americans that focus on conflicting emotions: the thrill of the new and the fear of losing the old: Ekwa Msangi’s FAREWELL AMOR and Natasha Ngaiza’s BLACKOUT. And finally, two films that refer directly and indirectly to ideas of Black Lives Matter: Ngaiza’s A MOTHER and Ashley O’Shay’s documentary UNAPOLOGETIC. Don’t miss the conversations we recorded with two of the filmmakers: one conversation with Natasha Ngaiza and the other with Ashley O’Shay. Passes on-sale now, individual tickets on-sale 2/12.
