Opening night of “L.A. Rebellion: Creating a New Black Cinema” featured the screening of new prints of two films by Julie Dash, Daughters of the Dust (1991) and Four Women (1975). The series— organized by professors Allyson Field of UCLA and Jacqueline Stewart of Northwestern Univer- sity, with Jan-Christopher Horak, Director of the UCLA Film and Television Archive—comprises the first large-scale retrospective of the alternative black cinema movement in los angeles. The program is part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980, the unprecedented collaboration, initi- ated by the getty foundation, bringing together more than sixty cultural institutions from across southern california to tell the story of the birth of the los angeles art scene.
