Film Love is an on-going Atlanta film series at The Eyedrum Gallery and occasionally at other venues as well. Its stated goal is to provide “access to great but rarely-screened films, and promotes awareness of the rich history of experimental and avant-garde filmmaking.” Over the years I’ve been to many really great screenings of films that are not released anywhere on DVD or VHS.
This year Film Love is presenting a series of movies about African Americans’ struggle for civil rights. The Civil Rights on Film series starts this Friday, February 20th and features four nights of rare films on African-American life, 1941-1967. To learn more about the films, please visit their website. Many of these films are not available anywhere else, so don’t miss this opportunity! Note: the films will be screened at three different locations, so check the website for where each movie will be held.
