Double Exposure: Take Two
June 1st and 2nd , 2019
Presented by Creatively Speaking
Twenty-four years ago, the Creatively Speaking Film Series was founded with the mission of elevating the work of highly regarded independent filmmakers of color. With this motive held uncompromisingly close, “Double Exposure: Take Two” brings to the forefront works from across the African Diaspora. Films born of African American, African and Caribbean origins find their place in this program, reaffirming Creatively Speaking’s commitment to changing the cultural narrative, one image at a time.
This program headlines the three feature films Uprize!, King of Stage and Double Play, and an arresting collective of short films. Love, revolution, wealth, disparity, history and the legends that create it, satiate this exhibition, to be witnessed and engaged with. We invite you to join us for affective and nuanced conversations with filmmakers and film enthusiasts following each program in this weekend series.
Curated by Michelle Materre and the Creatively Speaking team, at the behest of the ever-evolving and ever-inclusive future we wish to see.
