Mario Van Peebles Won’t Stop Making Films That MatterBy Allison KugelSeptember 26, 2018 *Born of a revolutionary bloodline to activist filmmaker, #MelvinVanPeebles, you could say that #MarioVanPeebles was born to make films that nudge our #socialconsciousness and encourage us to answer questions we hadn’t thought to ask. An #actor, #director and #writer, Mario Van Peebles’ first foray into acting was playing a younger version of his father Melvin’s character, Sweetback, in the senior Van Peebles’ most notable film, 1971’s #SweetSweetbacksBaadasssssSongBaadasssss Song pioneered a new era of #AfricanAmericancinema throughout the 1970s. It was this small role in his father’s groundbreaking film that set the stage for Mario’s life and career. He would continue to be driven to add to his father’s earlier legacy with films that push audiences out of their comfort zone and question socialandsocietalboundaries. One theme that run through much of Mario Van Peebles’ work is the assertion that we all have the #righttobe #fullyrecognizedhumanbeings, but more provocatively, how do we react when we feel that right has been infringed upon? Some might call Van Peebles an iconoclast, coming for long cherished, yet often potentially destructive social norms and institutions, while remaining inherently likeable to his fans. The secret, he says, is in the characters he writes, directs and sometimes portrays; they are complex portraits that make us look at the #grayareasoflife while being entertained. As a #filmmaker, he has an endless fascination with American culture, with all of its bumps and bruises. And as he states, “America is often referred to as ‘the melting pot.’ If you take immigrants from all over the world with different beliefs and bring them together you get conflict and sparks, but from that cultural [suffuse], you also get great music and art.” In his latest independent film, #Armed, written, directed and starring Van Peebles, he plays a former U.S. Marshall who has fallen on hard times after he led his team of under-cover agents on a raid that went horribly wrong. Now, suffering from PTSD and other mental health issues, as well as a somewhat warpedsense of ⬇

Fredericka Carolyn "Fredi" Washington(December 23, 1903 – June 28, 1994) was an African-American stage and film actress, civil rights activist, performer, and writer. Washington was of European and African Herritage, being one of the first people of color to gain recognition for their film and stage work back in the 1920s and 30s. Washington was active in the Harlem Renaissance (1920s-1930s), her best known role being as "Peola" in the 1934 version of the film Imitation of Life (1934), in which she plays a young light skin woman who decides to pass as white.Her last film role was in One Mile from Heaven (1937), after which she left Hollywood and returned to New York to work in theatre and civil rights activism. In Imitation of Life; Washington played a young, light skinned black woman who chose to pass as white to seek more opportunities in a society restricted by legal racial segregation in some states and social discrimination in others. As Washington had visible European ancestry, the role was considered perfect for her, but it led to her being typecast by filmmakers. Moviegoers sometimes assumed from Washington's appearance–her blue-gray eyes, pale complexion, and light brown hair–that she might have passed in real life. In 1934 she said the role did not reflect her off-screen life, but "If I made Peola seem real enough to merit such statements, I consider such statements compliments and makes me feel I've done my job fairly well."She told reporters in 1949 she identified as black "Because I'm honest, firstly, and secondly, you don't have to be white to be good. I've spent most of my life trying to prove to those who think otherwise ... I am a Negro and I am proud of it." She was outspoken about racism faced by African Americans. She worked closely with Walter White, then president of the NAACP, to address issues facing black people in America.Together, with Noble Sissle, W.C. Handy and Dick Campbell, in 1937 Washington was a founding member with Alan Corelli of the Negro Actors Guild of America (NAG) in New York. #blackhistorymonth #frediwashington #africanamericancinema #vintagecinema #vintageblackactresses #blackhollywood #immitationoflife
Evelyn Preer, born Evelyn Jarvis (July 16, 1896 – November 27, 1932), was a pioneering African-American stage and screen actress and blues singer of the 1910s through the early 1930s. Evelyn was known within the black community as "The First Lady of the Screen." Evelyn Preer was one of the first African-American actresses to transition into Hollywood films with sound. Preer had been called the hardest-working woman in show business. After convincing her stern, religious mother to let her study acting, Preer was discovered by the "father of black film," Oscar Micheaux. She landed her first big appearance in Micheaux’s film "The Homesteader," which was about a depressed black wife whose husband left her for a mulatto woman he believed to be white. After her remarkable performance, Preer would be cast in serious roles, uncharacteristic of black women in film of the time. She would become part of the renowned Lafayette Players acting troupe. Preer's success as an actress led her to productions where she performed with Duke Ellington and Ethel Waters. By the 1920s, she was a crossover actress, breaking onto the big screens of white theaters, while still making history on Broadway. Preer was the first actress to star in a black non-musical play for Broadway, "The Chip Woman's Fortune." Micheaux and Paul Robeson simply called her "the best." Race relations were tough in the entertainment business for Preer. In some films, she would only be allowed to be the voice of white actresses singing in white films. Yet, due to her light complexion, she would have to wear dark make-up in some performances so the audience would know she was black. Preer died at age 36 from post-partum illnesses and double pneumonia in 1932. Her legacy was left in a number of hit jazz records, in Hollywood films, Broadway productions and an unknown number of voice-overs of which her voice was given the face of a white actress. #evelynpreer #blackhistorymonth #africanamericanactresses #africanamericanfilm #africanamericancinema #blackfilm #blackcinema #blackhollywood #OscarMicheaux. #TheFirstLadyoftheScreen #thehomesteader #withinourgates
Ethel Moses (April 29, 1904 – June 1982) was an American actress and dancer, billed as "the black Jean Harlow". She is best known for working in films by Oscar Micheaux. She was born in Staunton, Virginia and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the daughter of William Henry Moses and Julia Trent Moses. Her sisters Lucia and Julia also became performers; their brother Bill taught at Hampton Institute. Their father was a prominent Baptist preacher in New York who disapproved of (but did not prevent) his daughters' stage careers. Ethel attended the Nannie Helen Burroughs School in the District of Columbia. In 1924 she made her stage debut as a dancer in a show called Dixie to Broadway. She won a beauty contest at the Savoy Hotel in 1926.In 1929 Ethel Moses was voted the "Shapeliest Chorus Girl" on the New York stage; her sister Lucia placed second in the same poll. She was in the company of a Broadway revival of Showboat in 1932. She danced at the Cotton Club. and toured Europe with the Cab Calloway band In the mid-1930s, she began working with filmmaker Oscar Micheaux; her first film role was as "The Bronze Venus", an artist's model who is seen nearly nude on screen, in Micheaux's Temptation (1936). The pair followed that success with Underworld (1937), in which Moses plays a college student, and God's Stepchildren (also 1937), in which she played two characters. Finally she was in a remake of Micheaux's silent picture, Birthright(remade in 1939). Moses also appeared in several musical shorts, including Cab Calloway's Jitterbug Party (1935). Ethel Moses left show business by early 1940 Her nephew is Robert Parris Moses, a civil rights activist and educator. #blackhistorymonth #ethelmoses #africanamericancinema #africanamericanfilm #africanamericanactresses #blackactreases #blackcinema #blackfilm #goneharlem #birthright #oscarmicheaux #theblackjeanharlow

Directed by Barbara McCullough in 1979 and made in collaboration with performer Yolanda Vidato, Water Ritual #1 examines Black women’s ongoing struggle for spiritual and psychological space through improvisational, symbolic acts. Shot in 16mm black-and-white, the film was made in an area in Watts - LA that had been cleared to make way for the I-105 freeway, but ultimately abandoned. By making “water,” Milanda evokes the numerous female water-based figures in African-Diaspora cosmology as she attempts to expel the putrefaction she has absorbed from her physical environment, while symbolically cleansing the environment itself. Structured as a ritual for Barbara McCullough’s “participant-viewers,” Water Ritual #1 honors Black/Third World women’s beauty and self-possession, and has been recognized as a pioneering work in Black feminist and experimental filmmaking. Although the film reflects a chain of abandonments— the city has turned its back on the Black community, residents have vacated their homes, and the deserted homes leave remaining folks like Milanda stranded and desolate—McCullough suggests that sites of urban blight can be activated as consecrated ground.

“Moonlight” (2016) may be Barry Jenkins’ most well-known film, especially after having received three Oscar wins in 2017 (which included the historic mix-up when the incorrect winner for Best Picture was incorrectly announced for “La La Land”). But do you know about the other films in Jenkins’ oeuvre? Doctoral student William Fech is teaching the yearly “Film Directors” course this fall, which will which provides a concentrated focus on four filmmakers of the instructor’s choice. Alongside Jenkins will be the works of Kelly Reichardt, Corneliu Porumboiu, and Mira Nair. . Pictured is a film still from Jenkins’ 2008 debut feature, “Medicine for Melancholy”. . . . . #AfricanAmericanFilm #AfricanAmericanCinema #AfricanAmericanFilms #BlackFilms #BlackFilmmakers #BlackFilmmaker #BlackFilmsMatter #IndependentFilm #IndependentCinema #AmericanFilm #AmericanCinema #MedicineForMelancholy #BarryJenkins #WyattCenac #TraceyHeggins #Cinema #Film #CinemaStudies #FilmStudies #GraduateStudies #GradStudies #MelHoppenheimSchoolOfCinema #ConcordiaUniversity #Montreal

These 3 recent films have made a huge mark in the world of African American Cinema. All of these films have amazing stories that discuss important topics within African American culture. Moonlight by Barry Jenkins was a beautiful character study and romance film. About a young man growing up being affected by both his environment and the people around him. While also discovering himself as a gay man. Get Out by Jordan Peele was a creepy and darkly comedic take on liberal racism. Done through a story about a black male visiting his white girlfriend’s family. Only to have very intense events happen to him. Black Panther by Ryan Coogler is an amazing comic book film about one of Marvel’s famous heroes. Which shows King T’Challa (AKA Black Panther), having to keep the peace in his country Wakanda. While also having to deal with enemies trying to bring down both him and the throne. I love each one of these films and understand the impact they have made in African American Cinema. How these films are ranked in my eyes: 1.)Moonlight 2.)Get Out 3.)Black Panther What are your thoughts on these films?
Boyz n the Hood (John Singleton, 1991): Heartfelt and heart-wrenching 'hood drama which plays out as more of a slow-building, slice of life tragedy than a sensationalistic crime film, with knockout performances from Ice Cube and Cuba Gooding Jr. as a pair of young men facing the every day pressures of racism, poverty and violence in South Central LA. Fancy That!: Following the release of Boyz n the Hood, John Singleton became not only the youngest person to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Director, but also - shamefully - the first African-American. #filmoftheday #boyznthehood #johnsingleton #hooddrama #sliceoflife #icecube #cubagoodingjr #academyaward #bestdirector #africanamericancinema

IN THE NEW YORK GROOVE: KATHLEEN COLLINS was one of the the first African American woman to write and direct a fictional feature with LOOSING GROUND in 1982. Predictably she faced enormous hurdles, on one hand no one wanted to give money to a woman of colour to make a film which was assumed to be of “niche” interest at best. On the other, the fact that Collins was a collage professor and French teacher also flew in the face of audience expectation that African American films should be about people struggling in the ghetto. Instead the film represented her world of of middle-class black intelligentsia. Speaking to the point of representing black identity in 1984 she said "If you’ve been the notion of sin incarnate and you’re now trying to correct that balance, what do you do? You make black people into saints...Neither one is true. Neither one is reality. Both are tracks to dehumanize you.” Losing Ground depicts the full world of her female protagonist in such a way that @indiewire commented "over three decades later, is not only a testament to its timelessness, but also is sadly indicative of how scarce complex depictions of the inner lives of women — specifically black women — are, in contemporary American cinema; especially when handled with such majesty.” Sadly Collins was lost to us in 1988 at the young age of 46 due to breast cancer. Her film was a lost gem until it was revived by a 2015 screening at Lincoln Center and then happily made available by @milestone_films, blessedly restoring Collins to her rightful place in the cinematic canon. . #kathleencollins #femaledirector #gamechanger #newyork #womeninfilm #africanamericancinema

"Norbit" Released today in 2007 This is one of those love/hate movies. On one hand there are many slapstick and cheap jokes in this film on the other hand that is why you would watch. While not some of Eddie Murphy's best work, Norbit is still a hilarious film for Eddie Murphy diehards. Mr. Murphy plays multiple characters as always which delivers. Mild-mannered Norbit (Eddie Murphy) has had it rough since the day he was left abandoned at a combination Chinese restaurant/orphanage. Recently forced to marry the shrewish glutton Rasputia, he is at wit's end. Then his childhood sweetheart, Kate (Thandie Newton), moves back to town, and he tries to figure out a way back to his true love.
Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins" Released today in 2008 in the USA A lot of Black folks call it "Acting Hollywood" or "Being on some Hollywood ish." Roscoe Jenkins has changed, his lifestyle, his wardrobe, and even his name. As a child, RJ Stevens (@martinlawrence) was the awkward brunt of numerous jokes. Now, RJ is a successful talk-show host who dispenses advice and encouragement to millions. When his parents ask him to come back home for their anniversary, RJ vows to show everyone how much he has changed. Unfortunately, RJ's plans are no match for his Southern relatives.
"The Color Purple" Released February 7, 1985 in the USA. A classic tale spanning forty years in the life of Celie (Whoopi Goldberg), an African-American woman living in the South who survives incredible abuse and bigotry. Celie's abusive father marries her off to the equally debasing "Mister" Albert Johnson (Danny Glover), things go from bad to worse, leaving Celie to find companionship anywhere she can. She perseveres, holding on to her dream of one day being reunited with her sister in Africa. Oprah in her first film role gives an academy award nominated performance as Sophia.Based on the novel by novel price literature winner Alice Walker. Directed by Stephen Spielberg.

"Barbershop 2: Back in Business" Released February 6, 2004 in the USA. This sequel to the blockbuster 2002 film returns to the Chicago barbershop owned by Calvin Palmer Jr. (@icecube).

Bojangles" Released  February 4, 2001 in the USA. The late great Gregory Hines stars as the incomparable trailblazer Bill " Bojangles" Robinson in this biopic. Mr. Robinson broke down many barriers in this country not only in entertainment but also politics as well. This film is definitely worth a watch during black history month. Tap dancing legend Savion Glover as well as Kimberly Elise also guest star.
KILLER OF SHEEP // “An American masterpiece, independent to the bone” (@nytimes). Feb 7 & 9 #yvrfilm #thecinematheque #blackhistorymonth #charlesburnett #africanamericancinema
"Mississippi Masala" Released February 5, 1992 in the USA. An Indian family is forced to relocate from Idi Amen led Uganda to Mississippi in the USA causing a culture shock to say the least. This romantic drama stars Denzel Washington as African American Mississippian business owner Demetrius who falls in love with Mina played Sarita Choudhury. The film follows their love affair and the perils and struggles they face culturally.
"Something New" Released  February 3, 2006 in the USA. As an African American I remember the controversy surrounding this movie when it was released. It definitely started a dialogue in the black community. This romantic comedy stars Sanaa Lathan as African-American career-minded Kenya McQueen. She is set up on a blind date with Caucasian architect Brian Kelly played by Simon Baker. The film follows their love affair and the perils and struggles of interracial dating in the United Sates.
"Good Fences" Released  February 2, 2003 in the USA. Danny Glover, Whoopi Goldberg, and Mo'Nique star in this movie about an upwardly mobile African American family struggling with racism and prejudice in the 1970s. Goldberg won an  NAACP Image Award for her role as the solid and resilient wife of the stressed workaholic Glover.

"Which Way is Up?" Released February 1st 1979 in Denmark/November 4th 1977 in USA Richard Pryor is the standard for comedy. In this film, he pulls triple duty. Pryor portrays down on his luck migrant worker Leroy Jones and family patriarch curmudgeon Rufus Jones. He is also backsliding collection plate obsessed Reverend Lenox Thomas. Leroy loses his job and moves to the city to better the life’s of both him and his family. After this hilarity and drama ensues. Historically this movie clearly influenced future comedians and films such as Eddie Murphy in Coming to America/Nutty Professor and Martin Lawrence’s sitcom Martin. Definitely a classic worth checking out in our book. #RichardPryor #WhichWayIsUp #Movies #Cinema#BlackHistoryMonth #BlackPanther #BlackCinema#BlackMovie #AfricanAmericanMovie #Comedy#AfricanAmericanCinema #BlackComedy #Comedian#Film #BlackHistory #FilmBuff
