Ciné Salon: Time Frozen
Ciné Salon Fall 2019 looks back to look forward.


Pioneer African-American cinema percolated confrontational racist views. Oscar Michaeux’s 1919 groundbreaking silent feature lifted the lid; and an obscure 1959 jazz documentary featuring Su Ra blew it up.

FILMS:
Within Our Gates (1919) Oscar Michaeux 80 min; Jam Session (1942) Josef Berne 3.5 min; The Cry of Jazz (1959) Edward Bland 34 min. TRT 117 mins.
