Film: Shifting Perspectives on Los Angeles – Ghetto Film School

May 26 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$5

For the current exhibition Shifting Perspectives: Vertical Cinema, the Academy Museum formed a community partnership with Ghetto Film School, a nonprofit founded in 2000 to educate, develop, and celebrate the storytellers of tomorrow. The museum provided 15 Los Angeles–based filmmakers, ages 18–24, the opportunity to create works for the exhibition based on a prompt to document the cultural vitality of Los Angeles. Each one-minute film unveils a distinct lens on the city—personal to each filmmaker, yet reflective of their respective communities, neighborhoods, and homes. These films function as a unique preservation of diverse cultures and experiences in the expansive, ever-evolving landscape of Los Angeles, venturing from ancestral practices and traditions to the intricate ties between food, family, social dynamics, identity, and roots.

This program will showcase director’s cuts of each film, some with newly imagined sound designs and mixes, for an intimate glimpse into the soul of Los Angeles as seen through the eyes of its vibrant and talented young storytellers. This screening will also be accompanied by conversations with the filmmakers.

These fifteen short films will be screened in three thematic groupings, each followed by a conversation with the respective filmmakers.
