Regeneration in Digital Contexts: Early Black Film


In this full-day conference on November 15, 2013, the Black Film Center/Archive convenes an interdisciplinary group of scholars and moving image archivists to discuss the new methodologies and questions emerging through recent scholarship in early black film, and to consider how we render a film as an object of study in transformative digital environments. Shola Lynch, curator of the Moving Image and Recorded Sound Archive at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, is scheduled to present the keynote address. 

In conjunction with the conference two films, The Flying Ace and Within Our Gates, will be shown at IU Cinema.
