GMU Visiting Filmmakers Series: Through a Lens Darkly March 16

Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People
Monday 16 March 4:30pm | Johnson Center Cinema
Screening and discussion with director Thomas Allen Harris and producer Deborah Willis

b2ap3_thumbnail_GMU-throughalensdarkly150211.jpgThe first documentary to explore the role of photography in shaping the identity, aspirations and social emergence of African Americans from slavery to the present, Through a Lens Darkly probes the recesses of American history by discovering images that have been suppressed, forgotten, and lost.

Inspired by co-producer and GMU alumnus Deborah Willis’ book, Reflections in BlackThrough a Lens Darkly casts a broad net that begins with filmmaker Thomas Allen Harris’ family album. It considers the difference between black photographers who use the camera to define themselves, their people, and their culture and some white photographers who, historically, have demeaned African Americans through racist imagery. The film embraces both historical material (African Americans who were slaves, who fought in the Civil War, were victims of lynchings, or were pivotal in the Civil Rights Movement) and contemporary images made by such luminaries as Roy DeCarava, Gordon Parks, and Carrie Mae Weems.  For more information, visit http://fams.gmu.edu/articles/7972
