Black Cinema Then and Now: 25 Years After The New Black Wave

In 1991, African American filmmakers launched several influential films: Boyz in the Hood (John Singleton), Daughters of the Dust (Julie Dash), New Jack City (Mario Van Peebles), A Rage in Harlem (Bill Duke) and Jungle Fever (Spike Lee). Twenty-five years later, where is black cinema now, and how much more needs to be done to foster African American filmmaking and stories?

Panelists: Prof. Allyson Field (moderator), Qasim Bashir (Destined), Matthew Cherry (9 Rides), Julie Dash (Daughters of the Dust), and Sam Pollard (Two Trains Runnin’)
