Thursday, October 12: The Black Maria Film Festival
Various directors | Animation/Experimental/Documentary | 101 minutes | USA/Netherlands/Poland, 2016
Film ratings: POC, W, F, I, EC
Black Maria is an international juried film competition. It has embraced its mission for 35 years by focusing on short films including those that shine a light on issues and struggles within contemporary society. The touring programs always include provocative works. The festival advances and exhibits the work of diverse filmmakers from across the U.S. and around the world. These artists often represent an under-served constituency who might not otherwise have the opportunity for live public exhibition nationwide or abroad. The festival will be screening a curated selection of animation, documentary, and experimental shorts. A discussion led by Professor Rob Todd with a few of the directors, including Assistant Professor Paul Turano, will follow the screening.
All screenings start at 7:00 pm and take place at Emerson’s Paramount Center Bright Family Screening Room, located at 559 Washington Street, Boston. Seating is first come, first served. There is no advance registration.
