Despite just two albums to her name, Amy Winehouse is one of the biggest music icons in British history. With a voice oft described as a combination of Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington, and Sarah Vaughan, Amy Winehouse was a pop star with soul; a once-in-a-generation musical talent whose appeal crossed cultural and demographic boundaries. But while her music made her a star, her chaotic personal life stole headlines.

Beyond the Lights

Remix: The Modern Black Experience in Film, Media, and Art

"One of the most pleasurable moviegoing experiences I had [in 2014] was catching Beyond the Lights in a suburban Southern California mall not long after it opened. It was the Tuesday night before Thanksgiving, and the theater was half-full, mostly with women. After the credits rolled and the lights went up, I drifted past a small group of white women who were still sitting and talking about the movie, which centers on a black female pop star. Most seemed pretty high on it, which suggests that the movie could do better than it has, if it could find its audience…I’m not sure why Beyond the Lights hasn’t found its audience. I like to think it isn’t racism." (Manohla Dargis, New York Times)

"People ask me all the time if I feel discriminated against as a black female director and I actually don't. I get offered a ton of stuff. But I like to direct what I've written. I feel what's discriminated against are my choices, which is to focus on people of color as real people. Those are the films that rarely get made and those are the films that take a lot more fight." (filmmaker Gina Prince-Bythewood, The Huffington Post)

Q&A filmmaker Gina Prince-Bythewood via Skype. Prince-Bythewood wrote and directed the widely acclaimed feature film Love & Basketball which premiered at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival. She won an Independent Spirit Award for Best First Screenplay and a Humanitas Prize for her work on the film. Her other directing credits include the HBO film Disappearing Acts and The Secret Live of Bees.

Amy

New Releases

"Amy is an emotionally stirring and technically polished tribute, its sprawling mass of diverse source material elegantly cleaned up, color-corrected and shaped into a satisfying narrative." (Hollywood Reporter)

Despite just two albums to her name, Amy Winehouse is one of the biggest music icons in British history. With a voice oft described as a combination of Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington, and Sarah Vaughan, Amy Winehouse was a pop star with soul; a once-in-a-generation musical talent whose appeal crossed cultural and demographic boundaries. But while her music made her a star, her chaotic personal life stole headlines.

Free Angela & All Political Prisoners

Remix: The Modern Black Experience in Film, Media, and Art

"Free Angela & All Political Prisoners may seem to take place in a distant past, but it resonates with improbable timeliness." (Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post)

A high stakes crime, political movement, and trial catapults a 26 year-old newly appointed philosophy professor at the University of California at Los Angeles into a seventies revolutionary political icon. Nearly forty years later, and for the first time, Angela Davis speaks frankly about the actions that branded her as a terrorist and simultaneously spurred a worldwide political movement for her freedom. The film received critical acclaim, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, and won the 2014 NAACP Image Award for Excellence for Best Documentary.
 
Q&A filmmaker Shola Lynch. In 2013, Shola Lynch was named the Curator for Film, Moving Image and Recorded Sound at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. As a filmmaker and curator, Shola has become a highly respected public speaker, lecturer and panelist on the subject of film and film history for universities, film festivals, and corporations. She is also working on a book based on her film Free Angela

Little Shop of Horrors: Director's Cut

After Dark

Since 1986 fans of this cult musical by composer Alan Menken and writer Howard Ashman have been grinning and singing along with Seymour, Audrey, and the “mean green mother from outer space.” But more than a handful have noted the out-of-sync happy ending, which was hastily added when test audiences gave a thumbs-down to the original. Now with that gone and 20 minutes of footage restored, here’s the whole thing again, as nature and Frank Oz intended. Want more Frank Oz? Take the family to see The Muppets Take Manhattan on 8/22 and 8/23 at noon.
