A Series in Collaboration with the Studio Museum in Harlem
December 2016 – February 2017
at The Maysles Cinema
Presented in partnership with The Studio Museum in Harlem, Studio Screen is a nonfiction film series addressing the on and off screen legacies of socially engaged cultural movements of the 1970s. Drawing thematic inspiration from two of the Museum’s current exhibitions, Circa 1970 and The Window and the Breaking of the Window, the selected films highlight the chosen methods and leaders people turn to when everyday injustices move them to protest. Each screening will be followed by a talkback session featuring local community organizers which will serve as a space for intergenerational reflection on contemporary protest practices and the ways history is present in all that we do.
All proceeds from the screenings will support the work of Maysles Cinema, at the MDC, a not for profit organization dedicated to the exhibition and production of documentary films that inspire dialogue and action.
