Award-winning filmmaker Ina Archer will share clips from her work that have to do with African-American film images. She will show some of her film, The Lincoln Film Conspiracy, which combines archival film footage, new video segments and digital image manipulation, collage and montage.
Based on the history of African-American independent silent and sound cinema, this fictional film is the story of an archivist who is investigating the disappearance of a collection of technologically progressive black films (that were previously abducted by extraterrestrials!).
Ina Archer is a 2009 New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) Fellow. NYFA Artist Talks are sponsored by the Brooklyn Community Foundation.
