New Black Wave showcases films by Black filmmakers that push cinema's conceptual and aesthetic boundaries to explore deep-rooted emotions within the African Diaspora. Back for its second edition, the films in New Black Wave Vol. 2 remix public and personal archives to reveal new meanings within familiar images of Black life in America. We bear witness to the absolute and overwhelming freedom exhibited in Black expression and the ever-present power of Black culture. The show features brilliant films by Michèle Stephenson and Imani Dennison, Julie Dash, Ja'Tovia Gary, Paige Taul, Jenn Nkiru, Moïse Togo, and Darol Olu Kae. The screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmakers and curator and writer Taylor Renee Aldridge of the California African American Museum (CAAM).
