Thursday, April 25, 7pm
Logan Center Screening Room 201
Introduction by Sergio Mims
Jamaa Fanaka, 1976, 35mm, 100 min, new print!
This portrait of a young Black woman from the South adjusting to life in the big city riffs on (and remakes) the Blaxploitation genre; unlike the superheroics of a Coffy, Foxy Brown or Cleopatra Jones, Emma Mae's remarkable proficiency at kicking ass derives from her ability to tap into a wellspring of Black women's latent powers in order to protect and serve her own.
