July 19, 2015 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM


UCLA Film & Television Archive presents “Tell It Like It Is: Black Independents in New York, 1968-1986.”

Voices of the Gods (1985)
Directed by Alfred J. Santana.

A rare and sensitive social document, Alfred J. Santana’s film details ancient African religions practiced in the contemporary United States, critically illustrating the disrespect afforded these practices by American mass media.

58 min.

Followed by:
Let the Church Say Amen! (1974)
Directed by St. Clair Bourne.

Filmmaker St. Clair Bourne’s masterful documentary surveys the Black church in America through the perspective of a young minister-in-training, traveling from church to church. Comparing the sustenance afforded to some Christians, and the embattled position of some churches witnessing urban ills and the rise of ideologically opposed Black Muslims, Bourne’s protagonist stands on the brink of fascinating spiritual and social evolutions.

60 min.

FREE Admission for all UCLA students with valid I.D.!
