Dissent! - L.A. Rebellion
DISSENT! Talk with Billy Woodberry & Barbara McCullough - after screening Bless Their Little Hearts
“The black experience, in some ways, is particular, but in that it is also universal”, says Billy Woodberry. What does it mean to cinematically represent and consider “black experience”? How can one, at the same time, wage war on the prevailing raciological orthodoxy in cinema, and escape from the burden of representation that tends to befall films that grapple with the lives of the discriminated and marginalized? And how does one prolong that struggle, in cinema as elsewhere? In this session, we will talk with Billy Woodberry and Barbara McCullough about how these challenges have been addressed in their work, and in the L.A. Rebellion movement.
In collaboration with UGent.
