Filmmaker and programmer in residence Amir George of
Chicago’s Black Cinema House, and Los Angeles based curator Erin Christovale,
are presenting, again, a screening of short films they call Black Radical
Imagination, coming up this time around in Oakland, CA.
Imagination was designed by George and Christovale to
“invoke a futurist aesthetic of the black image on screen. The visual
pieces delve into the worlds of video art, film animation, narrative
storytelling, and new media. Each artist contributes their own vision of a free
changing world in a post modern society.“
The Imagination screening, presented by Michael Orange ofthe Brooklyn Film and Theater Company and Anyka Barber of the Betti Ono Gallery, will take place on Sunday Oct. 6th from 2-6PM at Betti Ono in Oakland, located at 1427 Broadway.
After the screening there will be a panel discussion with
George and Christovale, moderated by Bay-area writer and visual artist D. Scot Miller.
