Black Sun, White Moon: Exploring Black Cinematic Imaginations of Space
This year marks the 50th year since Neil Armstrong’s moon landing. In honor of this “giant leap for mankind,” the Black Film Center/Archive and IU Cinema present the Black Sun, White Moon film series. As the films bring us vibrant celestial images and narratives of unique human achievement, we invite audiences to also discuss the relationships between space travel, socioeconomic inequity, and communities of African descent. Black Sun, White Moon was curated by Terri Francis, associate professor in The Media School and director of the Black Film Center/Archive at Indiana University. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.
This series is sponsored by the Black Film Center/Archive, Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and IU Cinema.
