Watch Jimmy Kimmel's Gentrified Brooklyn Send-Up 'Do the White Thing'

24 October 2015 8:52 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jimmy Kimmel Live! wrapped up a week of Brooklyn-filmed episodes by reflecting one last time on how much the borough has changed since Jimmy Kimmel's childhood here decades ago. To illustrate how different Brooklyn is now, Kimmel reimagined one of the greatest films about the area – Spike Lee's 1989 classic Do the Right Thing – as the gentrified Do the White Thing, an all-star sendup of Bedford-Stuyvesant's hipster transformation.

In the sketch, many of Do the Right Thing's famous scenes and characters are lampooned to reflect the neighborhood's current »

Watch Bree Newsome Tell Her South Carolina Story (Video)

3 July 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

I'm sure you're all aware of filmmaker and activist Bree Newsome's bold act of defiance in South Carolina last week; if not, what rock have you been hiding under? A Google or Twitter search of her name will get you all caught up.  Or you can also watch her tell the whole story on any of the TV shows she appeared on yesterday, which was apparently media day for her. She was interviewed by Amy Goodman for Democracy Now, by Chris Hayes on MSNBC, by CBS News, and several others, seemingly ending the day with an appearance on Larry Wilmore's late-night show, "The Nightly Show," on Comedy Central. She even now has her own Wikipedia page. I've embedded the »

Extending the Window: A Conversation with Ken Jacobs

30 June 2015 5:41 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Ken Jacobs. Photo by María Meseguer.This past June in A Coruña, Spain (S8) 6th Mostra de Cinema Periferico hosted a retrospective of Ken Jacobs. A legend of experimental filmmaking, this New Yorker gave a master-class about the influence of abstract paintings on his work, presented a broad selection of films in his filmography to the audience, and premiered New Paintings by Ken Jacobs (2015), a new film performance using his famous Nervous Magic Lantern, consisting of a series of abstract slides that he projects with a special device of his own creation. The program focused on Jacobs’ first films, close to a kind of Brakhage-like documentary style, the long series he made along with Jack Smith as an actor/performer, and his experiments with 3D, both in film and digital formats. After all these screenings, we had a coffee or two with him and talked about the films in the program. »

Watch: Ava DuVernay's Gracious, Humble Response to 'Selma' Oscar Snub

28 January 2015 11:50 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Speaking with Democracy Now!'s Amy Goodman at Sundance yesterday, "Selma" director Ava DuVernay responded to the furor surrounding the film with characteristic grace, paying homage to the "giants, real, bold, brave Americans of color, and otherwise, all kinds of people, who marched for something that was really important" before addressing Hollywood's systemic failure to make room for diverse voices. (Watch the full interview below.)    Acknowledging that the film's Best Picture nomination is "nothing to sneeze at," DuVernay argues that the problem is not the Academy per se, but the fact that "Selma" was the only strong Oscar contender this year to feature people of color in prominent roles in front of and behind the camera: [T]he question is: Why was Selma the only film that was even in the running with people of color for the award? You know what I mean? I mean, why are there not—not just black, »

Ava DuVernay Says She "Never Expected" to Get an Oscar Nomination + Talks Katrina Project

28 January 2015 8:18 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

"Selma" premiered in London last night; but before she made her appearance there, last week, Ava DuVernay gave a four-part, hour-long video interview to Amy Goodman, for the progressive "Democracy Now," in which they talked about the Oscars, "Selma" and a few other things. Among the interesting tidbits shared in the interview, Ms. DuVernay revealed that she never believed or expected that she was going to get an Oscar nomination for Best Director, and had been, in fact, telling people just that, since last fall, even though everyone (including myself) did not believe it. But, naturally, she is very disappointed that David Oyelowo was passed »
