Young, Gifted, and Black: Michael Schultz Celebrates 50 Years in Stage and Screen
Join the Black Film Center/Archive and Indiana University Cinema as we celebrate the 50-year career of filmmaker Michael Schultz. The series marks a reunion as well, taking place 30 years after Schultz’s previous visit to Indiana University with his wife and creative partner, Gloria Schultz. Young, Gifted, and Black brings to the big screen a selection of the award-winning director’s most exuberant films from the dawning years of the hip-hop age. For more information on additional Michael Schultz celebrations, please visit www.indiana.edu/~bfca/events. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.
The series is sponsored by the Black Film Center/Archive; IU Office of the Bicentennial; Archives of African American Music and Culture; The Media School; Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs; and IU Cinema.
