Bold, independent works from our L.A. Rebellion collection can be seen in @bamcinematek's “Say It Loud: Cinema in the Age of Black Power, 1966-1981” series, happening now through August 30!
In the late 1960s, a group of African and African-American students entered @ucla_tft as part of an Ethno-Communications initiative designed to be responsive to communities of color. Now referred to as the "L.A. Rebellion," these mostly unheralded artists created a unique cinematic landscape, as—over the course of two decades—students arrived, mentored one another and passed the torch to the next group. In 2011, the Archive launched a major effort to identify, preserve and share this important part of film history. #LARebellion
