Reelblack founder Mike D. will participate in a post-screening discussion.

Screening will take place at 5:30pm at the African-American Museum, 701 Arch Street.

Late Summer | Dir Ernie Park | 2012 | 57 mins runtime

Nadia lives in a small house in rural Tennessee with her mother Sonya, who is recovering from a recent illness. Torn between staying at home to care for her mother or move several states away to a good university, Nadia spends her summer trying to decide between family obligation and personal growth.

“If Yasujiro Ozu could set a film in the Black South, it might look a lot like LATE SUMMER, Ernie Park’s glowing adaptation of films like Ozu’s Late Autumn. Park not only riffs on Ozu’s tales of family love and social belonging, he crafts a kindred poetic language, one born little by little, over time in Nashville.” - Christina Ree, Pacific Arts Movement

After the screening a panel discussion will take place featuring local African American and Asian American filmmakers. Topics will include shared experiences as underrepresented minorities working in the entertainment industry and the potential for future collaborations between our two communities. Greater Philadelphia Film Office’s Director of Marketing and Multicultural Affairs Nicole Giles will moderate this panel.

Panelists:
Nuala Cabral- BlackStar Film Festival Youth Program Coordinator
Mike Dennis- Reelblack Founder
Eiko Fan- Philadelphia Museum of Art, Sculpture Teacher, Performance Artist
Boone Nguyen- Scribe Video Program Manager

      If you park on the lot next to the museum you can get a discount. I think it's 6 dollars.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
