Reviving and Reviewing the “Race Film”: Borderline

Wed, February 14, 2018 7:00 P.M.
International House Philadelphia, 3701 Chestnut St.

Southerners new to Philadelphia via the Great Migration in the first half of the 19th century found the city’s few unsegregated movie houses venues for entertainment and community engagement. There, films made by and for African Americans were screened. Co-presented by the Wolf Humanities Center at the University of Pennsylvania and Penn Cinema and Media Studies, in collaboration with International House Philadelphia, this series revisits these cinematic works and their creative influence on later filmmakers.
