ARRAY @ The Broad: Ashes and Embers

REDCAT and The Broad present ARRAY @ The Broad

Series: ARRAY @ The Broad

ARRAY @ The Broad is an ongoing series featuring classic and contemporary films curated with an eye toward the intersection of art, history and cultural identity. With the cinematic image as the centerpiece, the series will engage audiences through post-screening conversations with a spectrum of artists and scholars for an immersive exchange of ideas and insights beyond the screen that enliven many issues addressed by artists in the Broad collection. ARRAY, founded in 2010 by filmmaker Ava DuVernay (SELMA), is an arts collective dedicated to the amplification of films by people of color and women filmmakers.

Ashes and Embers Film Screening

A disillusioned veteran of the Vietnam War attempts to come to terms with his past and his current place as a black man in America in director Haile Gerima's Ashes and Embers, 1983. Winner of the 1983 FIPRESCI Prize for Forum of New Cinema at the Berlin International Film Festival, this little seen screen gem will serve as entry into candid dialogue about nationalism, liberty and race relations explored from the artist viewpoint. Engaging the audience in this conversation is a high-profile quorum of actors, musicians and scholars selected by the filmmaker and ARRAY founder Ava DuVernay, who will also serve as host for this second gathering in this ongoing film series. Tickets are $20 and will be available beginning Thursday, Dec. 17 at 1 p.m.
