[Virtual] Shorts with Filmmakers dream hampton and Nailah Jefferson
December 10 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM PST
Join us for our final installment of The African Diaspora Film Club. Modeled after our African Book Club, we meet to discuss a film, two films in this case, that we have all viewed in advance of the discussion. The conversation will be moderated by Cornelius Moore, a longtime director at California Newsreel and film series curator at MoAD. We will be choosing a selection of films, some previously screened at MoAD. You may have already seen it, or this may be your first introduction. In either case, join us for a lively discussion of the film.
This month we will discuss two short films with filmmakers dream hampton and Nailah Jefferson. FRESHWATER (dream hampton, 2022, 10 min) is meditation on Detroit unveiling the fluid nature of memory in familial legacies. DESCENDED FROM THE PROMISED LAND: THE LEGACY OF BLACK WALL STREET (Nailah Jefferson, 2021, 22 minutes) ponders how Black Wall Street might have influenced the nation had the Tulsa Race Massacre never happened. The film offers an intimate look at the tragedy’s lingering economic, psychological, and emotional impacts through the lens of several family descendants.
