IU Cinema: “Naked Acts” film

07:00 pm to 08:30 pm
IU Cinema, 1213 E. 7th St.

“Imagine that your grandmother was Dorothy Dandridge, your mother was Pam Grier, and you wanted to be an actress. Who would you be?” With Naked Acts’ story of a young actress struggling against pressure to perform a nude scene on screen, writer/director Bridgett M. Davis sets out to examine the impact on self-image of “the dominant film portrayals of Black women in this country’s cinematic history” and “to get beyond the limitations placed on our bodies by our racialized past.” (16mm presentation)

Bridgett M. Davis and Renée Cox are scheduled to be present.

Sponsored by Black Film Center/Archive, College Arts & Humanities Institute, the Kinsey Institute, Departments of American Studies, Gender Studies, English, and African American and African Diaspora Studies, the Creative Writing Program, and IU Cinema.

Cost: Free, but ticketed
