April 30-May 1: Eye of the Storm: The Films of Michelle Parkerson


Join Scribe Video Center Tuesday, April 30 and Wednesday, May 1 as they present a series of retrospective screenings and a Master Class to celebrate Michelle Parkerson’s groundbreaking film work. Among the first African American women filmmakers to explore the intersections between race, gender, LGBT sexual identity, and class, Michelle Parkerson’s impressive body of work contains portraits of some of the most extraordinary artists of the last half of the 20th century, including the jazz musician vocalist Betty Carter, the a cappella innovators Sweet Honey in the Rock, and the extraordinary poet/essayist Audre Lorde.

Presented in partnership with International House Philadelphia, Third World Newsreel, Women Make Movies, Department of Film & Media Arts at Temple University, Leeway Foundation, and BlackStar Film Festival.
