#TBT I Am Not #AngelaDavis I think I'm going to post this every week during #WomensHistoryMonth because I'm shocked & disappointed at how many people, college students even think I am Angela or she is my mother. Look at her, now look at me AND please watch the amazing doc #FreeAngela by #SholaLynch

You're here! Follow along on Twitter and with the hashtag #StoopSeries for our conversation on Black Women in Media hosted by @sil_lai with @aleostar @kiernamayo, #SholaLynch, and @charisseiscool

About that screening, gathering, science-dropping session at Facebook last night! "Free Angela and All Political Prisoners" @freeangelamovie #sholalynch #revolutionary

What can I say? Her beautiful personality and smile flows right on out every time she speaks. Such an accomplished yet extremely humbled woman. Was so honored to be in the presence of her and so many other educated, successful black and brown doc-filmmakers and enthusiasts. Can't wait to see her next documentary #13th

#ThinkCinematic on #InternationalWomensDay. #ACinemaOfWomen: #SholaLynch's homage to #AngelaDavis revisited. #52FilmsByWomen... - 'Remarkable poise and dignity are among the characteristics that #FreeAngelaandAllPoliticalPrisoners, the new #documentary by #director Shola Lynch (#Chisholm72), conveys most strongly about the professor, activist, #icon and force of nature at its center. The subject of songs by #musicians including #TheRollingStones and #JohnLennon and #YokoOno, at the age of 68 Davis still glows with the charisma, warmth and fierce #intellect that brings the film’s extensive archival material—from personal letters to lectures to her extensive FBI files—to life. Lynch’s #film, whose producers include #JayZ, #WillSmith and #JadaPinkettSmith, is a valuable complement to studies of Davis’s books and speeches, which remain all too resonant and relevant today.' - ©Livia Bloom. #FilmMakerMagazine.

#ThinkCinematic on #InternationalWomensDay. #ACinemaOfWomen & Pratibha Parmar's #AliceWalker: #BeautyInTruth... - “Part of the problem with Western #feminists, I find, is that they take after their brothers and their fathers. And that’s a real problem.” – Alice Walker

#PratibhaParmar’s homage to Walker in ‘Beauty In Truth’ is symbolically a rebuttal of what she terms ‘historical amnesia’.. That the narratives of #women like Alice Walker are broadly excluded from the cinematic canon of American iconicism is director Pratibha Parmar’s personal protest mission... There’s a whisper of divine intervention to be read in the close proximity releases of ‘Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth’ and #FreeAngelaandAllPoliticalPrisoners,’ the forthcoming feature-length documentary by director #SholaLynch. With both projects helmed by #womenofcolour directors, and with #AngelaDavis as the ever-present contributor to both #films (and also previously the focus of Pratibha Parmar’s 1991 documentary ‘#APlaceOfRage’), there’s a distinct sense of thematic revival intensifying around political discourses of #Blackwomanhood and the desire to see expansive representations of women of colour embodied in contemporary American screen-culture. Through this new cinematic rediscovery of womanist narratives via Alice Walker and Angela Davis, there is perhaps a connected critical mass that helps to contextualise the recent runaway successes of women-centered projects from directors #AvaDuVernay and #DeeRees to #IssaRae’s ‘Misadventures of #AwkwardBlackGirl,’ all the way to the polarizing phenomena of #ShondaRhimes’ ‘#ScandalABC'... If the complexity of an artist’s private life is said to mirror the content of their art, then it’s worth noting whom in ‘Beauty In Truth,’ Alice Walker cites as her most influential literary forebear. For Walker, it is in reading #HarlemRenaissance writer #ZoraNealeHurston that she first derives a “sense of Black people as complete, complex, undiminished human beings.” - © @JanaSante. #Indiewire | #ShadowandAct.

Look at her, now look at me AND please watch the amazing doc #FreeAngela by #SholaLynch

Shola Lynch's feature documentaries focus on revolutionary black women: FREE ANGELA AND ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS on activist Angela Davis, and CHISHOLM ’72 - UNBOUGHT & UNBOSSED, the Peabody-winning portrait of the first woman to run for President. Both films continue to be extraordinarily relevant in this era. Lynch is also the film curator @NYPL Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.

What a gift! The historic and soul stirring #DaughtersOfTheDust kicks off the amazing #BlackWomensCinema series entitled #OneWayOrAnother featuring films from 1970-1991 for, by and about #BlackWomen at #BAM from Feb 3-23. The series line up is filled with rarely seen gems and very important stories of our realities and histories. I was so happy to spend my Nana's birthday, who was a proud daughter of South Carolina with #geechee / #gullah roots, immersed in the lush and visually stunning world #JulieDash reflects in this film. This film tells stories of pain and beauty, the power of legacy and the strength of the intergenerational fabric of the African American family that has sustained us in this country for hundreds of years. I'm so thankful I finally got to see this film. It was followed by an awesome discussion with writer/director/producer #LeslieHarris of #JustAnotherGirlOnTheIRT and #SholaLynch of #Chisholm72 (THIS IS WHY BROOKLYN IS MY HOME! SERIOUSLY, TO BE SURROUNDED BY ALL OF THIS! 🙏🏾). Thanks for another fun night out on the town @luciaisabel 🙌🏾

ANGELA YVONNE DAVIS
THE VOICE OF A WOMAN
"FREE ANGELA & ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS"
By Writer & Director: Shola Lynch

#thevoiceofawoman #angeladavis #activist #scholar #freeangela #documentary #film #sholalynch #director

#ThinkCinematic #Cathartic #Resistance #Film Playlist Vol 3, lovingly curated for all those sitting out the pomp & ceremony of #Inauguration2017. Proceed directly to 👉 #SidneyLumet's #12AngryMen on #Netflix for a better understanding of American imperialism & other male pursuits + #documentary #filmmaker #SholaLynch's pre-#13TH ode to social justice and more specifically #activist #AngelaDavis via #FreeAngelaandAllPoliticalPrisoners (because no such thing may likely ever happen again, post-#Obama) + #IvanDixon & #SamGreenlee's #TheSpookWhoSatByTheDoor + #TheStepfordWives 1975 (because it somewhat puts this day in terrifying #cinema-of-post-#feminist-apocalyptic-#patriarchy context, eh?). OK good luck! ✌

#ThinkCinematic 👉 kicked off #ACinemaOfWomen #52FilmsByWomen 2017 #cinema trip with #AndreaArnold's #AmericanHoney. Next up- revisiting #SholaLynch's sublime #documentary #Chisholm72: #UnboughtandUnbossed. Amped to hear via #ShadowAndAct that #AnikaNoniRose is onboard for the #biopic! [#WomenInFilm #BlackWomenInFilm #BlackWomenInHollywood #WomenDirectors #WomanWithAMovieCamera....] 👉 - “Portrayed by #TonyAward-Winning #Actress, Anika Noni Rose, #CHISHOLM embodies the keen sense of justice and community, embracing her fold like a warrior. Always meticulously dressed, pearls in place, watched adjusted to the second, Congresswoman #ShirleyChisholm metamorphosed to do #America’s business. With a colorful team of cohorts by her side, #Congresswoman Chisholm personifies the bold educated #Brooklynite with her roots firmly planted in her #Caribbean heritage, hurdling humongous odds in a system structured for whites and males only. With an efficient producing team, Creative Monster Production’s Bryan Gambogi ('Blue Jasmine’/ 'King of Beasts’ Documentary), Grant Anderson (‘Green Hornet’), Debbie Brubaker (‘Big Eyes’), Barbara Bullard, social innovator, and an award-winning writing team, Armistead Johnson and Montserrat Mendez, CHISHOLM will be eloquently developed, changing the paradigm of how we ourselves can be a ‘Catalyst for Change.'” - S&A

#ThinkCinematic on #ACinemaOfWomen & #AliceWalker's #BeautyInTruth 👉 'The thing I was most proud of this year? Writing about the creative thing I love most- #cinema. So chuffed to get to do it for #ShadowAndAct on #indieWIRE too. Having Ms Alice Walker as a 1st assignment was tough. The woman is complicated. And conflicting. And her mind is marvellous. Director #PratibhaParmar captured that well. And her telling me that she thought I got that too was a huge frickin' honour. So in the spirit of #52FilmsByWomen......
