  • Black Cinema House, Stony Island Arts Bank 6760 South Stony Island Avenue Chicago, IL, 60649 United States (map)

CMP continues our support of the Chicago International Film Festival with another special event -- co-presenting a special panel on a current pressing issue in doc filmmaking at Black Cinema House. 

Responding to the harrowing police shootings of unarmed African Americans and wider racial injustices in America, Black Lives Matter has become one of the defining social movements of our times. How important is media to their message, and how can filmmakers best tell the stories of contemporary civil rights struggles in the black community? We check in with the following filmmakers and activists on the frontlines of the conflict:

  • Anton Seals, Jr.
  • Damon Davis ("Whose Streets?")
  • Aemilia Scot ("Shot")
  • Charles Alexander Preston (Church on the 9)
  • William Calloway (journalist/activist)
