Summary
"The group of Black filmmakers that have come to be known as the L.A. Rebellion created a watershed body of work that strives to perform the revolutionary act of humanizing Black people on screen. The filmmakers in this group met as students in film school at the University of California, Los Angeles, between the late 1960s and the mid-1980s."--booklet. This collection contains this broad representative sampling of their projects, as were exhibited in the film exhibition.
