Twenty-three years ago, the Creatively Speaking Film Series was founded with the mission of elevating the work of highly regarded independent filmmakers of color. “Double Exposure”, highlights work from across the African Diaspora – African American, African and Caribbean films -- reaffirming Creatively Speaking’s commitment to changing the cultural narrative, one image at a time.
The films in this program are an array of genres: a love triangle, the biography a living legend, a political drama, little known history lessons, contemporary social issues and speculative fiction from the not too distant future are presented, compared and contrasted. We invite you to join us for in depth conversations with filmmakers and film enthusiasts following each program in this weekend series.
Special guests include Ernest Dickerson, Lisa Cortes, Juney Smith, & Woodie King, Jr., Angelique Webster, Darius Clark Monroe and Kazembe Balagun.
Curated by Michelle Materre and the Creatively Speaking team.
