Spring black film series at Doc Films at U of Chicago

30 March 2011 8:43 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Starting this week during the spring quarter on every Tuesday until May 31st, the Doc Film Society at the University of Chicago will screen a black film series of mainly rarely seen Hollywood produced black films and independently made “race” movies of the 1940′s: White on Black: Hollywood and Black Cinema

Some of the films in the series will include Spencer Williams’ Go Down Death (1944), Oscar Micheaux’s Within Our Gates(1920) and his gangtser film Underworld (1937) King Vidor’s MGM film (1929, one of the first sound films made) and Reet, Petite and Gone with the true innovator, and who many, perhaps rightly, claim was the real creator of “rock and roll”, Louis Jordan (1947)

And rumor has it that a certain annoying pest (better known as me) will host and introduce a few of the films in the series. All the films will start at 7Pm at Doc Films’ Max Palevsky »
