In Our View: Films by African American Women

A Year of Women in Cinema

Presented by Roxbury International Film Festival and The Color of Film

Friday, December 8 – Thursday, December 14, 2017

The Brattle is excited to help kick-off the 20-year celebration of the Roxbury International Film Festival with this co-curated program. From 1982’s pioneering LOSING GROUND to the recent Oscar-nominated hit SELMA, it’s clear that African American women have a unique – though frequently overlooked – voice within cinema. This program highlights both of the above titles as well as DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST by the legendary Julie Dash, the locally shot LIFT (starring an early-career Kerry Washington), Dee Rees’ arthouse breakout PARIAH, the incredibly charming sports romance LOVE & BASKETBALL, and many more. Please join us for this special program celebrating diversity in filmmaking!
