MOCA's film program 'Screen: Black Radical Imagination' celebrates black women filmmakers
Shout-out to Instagram Stories, because that is how I found out about a wonderful new slate of film programming presented by Black Radical Imagination in partnership with MOCA, the Los Angeles-based contemporary art museum known for hosting cutting-edge exhibits and film programming, such as Double Conscience, Kahlil Joseph's double-screen projection of his film m.A.A.d.
Screen: Black Radical Imagination is a three-month long online film festival curated by Jheanelle Brown and Darol Olu Kae, which features short experimental films. One director's work will be featured at moca.org/screen every two weeks from March through the first week of June. And much to my delight, all of the films except for one are directed by Black women:
From March 17 through April 1, dana washington's excellent short Under Bone will be streaming. Black Radical Imagination has other screenings with other institutions planned for the rest of the year so stayed tuned.
