SATURDAY, JUNE 15 from 4:00-5:30pm | The Conga Room at L.A. LIVE
An increasing number of independent filmmakers are exploring issues of what it means to be “American,” presenting a more diverse picture than is typically seen in the multiplex. In this Obama Age, aspects of American life that have not been visible on movie screens are now being exposed by a new crop of directors. Join us as these filmmakers discuss race, social alienation, sexuality and the intricacies of drawing an American identity outside of the margins.
Panelists include Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station), Ava DuVerany (Middle of Nowhere, Venus Vs.) and Grace Lee (American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs). Sponsored by HBO.
Hosted by Blackhouse.
Free and open to the public. RSVP Here »
