LACMA is now preparing for the construction of its new building for the permanent collection, which will include a new state-of-the-art theater with greater projection and sound capabilities. Throughout construction, FILM at LACMA programs will continue in collaboration with a variety of partners at venues throughout Los Angeles County. 

To receive the latest updates, sign up for the monthly Film email.

Reserve your spot for virtual film programs and post-screening conversations between filmmakers as they discuss representations of Black joy and resilience in film, particularly against the historical backdrop of framing Black themes through lenses of tragedy and oppression. The series will shift the Black narrative in film from suffering to triumph and achievement as well as reframe Black representation in film during these socially fraught times.

Films are paired with pre-show shorts by emerging filmmakers curated by NewFilmmakers LA.

Presented on Slipstream in partnership with ASU Film Spark, the Sidney Poitier New American Film School, and NewFilmmakers LA.

All screenings are free. RSVP required.
