    20th Anniversary Celebration of the New Wave of Black Cinema
    NY Times Magazine

    In 1991, The New York Times Magazine ran a cover story about the unprecedented number of black films released by Hollywood. Produced both inside and outside the studio system, these films heralded the arrival of a new generation of filmmakers, including Spike Lee, John Singleton, Mario Van Peebles, Robert Townsend, the Hudlin brothers, and Matty Rich. The films released that year, including Boyz n the Hood, New Jack City, Jungle Fever, and Straight out of Brooklyn, sparked a cultural explosion that still reverberates.

    Author and filmmaker Nelson George will present a keynote address at the Museum of the Moving Image including clips from key films of the era and followed by live interviews onstage via Skype with major filmmakers from the period. John Singleton is confirmed.

    The program will conclude with a town hall discussion, organized with the assistance of Sheril D. Antonio, Associate Dean at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts and led by key faculty members.

    Joining the discussion will be filmmakers, film programmers, critics and journalist to critique and comment on the trajectory of black cinema over the past twenty years, its impact on American culture, and its future direction.
