We are thrilled to partner with REDCAT on the program Let It Be Known, a collection of experimental short films that explores the confluence of intersectionality and speculative fiction, curated by Erin Christovale.

The program, a Los Angeles premiere at REDCAT includes: Moon Tendon (2013) and Playing Possum (2012) by Jamilah Sabur; Big Gurl (2006), a stop-motion animation by Lauren Kelley; The Golden Chain (2015) by filmmaker Buki Bodunrin and graphic novelist Ezra Claytan Daniels; A Feeling Like Chaos (2015) by artist Suné Woods; The Origin of the Blues (2013) by Ariel Jackson; and My father and I dance in outer space (2011) and Two (2010) by Wura-Natasha Ogunji.  A discussion will follow the screening, moderated by Kara Keeling, Associate Professor in USC’s School of Cinematic Arts.

This event is part of Clockshop’s Radio Imagination, a series of programs and artist commissions exploring the legacy of Octavia E. Butler. Special thanks to Bérénice Reynaud.
