In the late 1960s, in the aftermath of the Watts Uprising and against the backdrop of the continuing Civil Rights Movement and the escalating Vietnam War, a group of African and African-American students entered the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television. These artists created the so-called “L.A.Rebellion” film movement. Beyond the films themselves, the “LA Rebellion” deserves a place in the history of cinema for its utopian vision for a better society, for its sensitivity to children and gender issues, for its questioning of power, its support for liberation movements of the Third World and of course for the expression of Black pride and dignity. We have the honor to have an in-depth discussion with two of the movement's leading directors.

Speakers: Charles Burnett, Larry Clark
Coordination: Jacob Skenderidis

The discussion will be held in English.
