Celebrating its 11th year, Harlem Stage on Screen (formerly The Harlem Film Festival), features a selection of the most engaging and innovative new films and videos created by Harlem-based filmmakers, including the award-winning documentary American Blackout by Ian Inaba and Jean Phillipe Boucicaut; Revolution as Art which presents two new works about Lorraine Hansberry and the world premiere of One People by Al Santana and Laura Fowler.
A special highlight of the festival is the New York premiere of the documentary Some Kind of Funny Porto Rican by Claire Andrade Watkins. This enlightening, distinctive film focuses on the little known Cape Verdean community of New England. The film The Youngbloods Jam in Harlem, underlines one of its most driving new voices in Harlem’s Jazz scene. The Youngbloods will also perform at the third annual Women’s History Month presentation with New York Women in Film and Television.
Films presented on Sunday emphasize new, exhilarating work by up-and-coming independent filmmakers, along with revisiting audience favorites—this year the classic 1989 film A Raisin in the Sun with Danny Glover and Esther Rolle.
Each program is followed by audience dialogue with filmmakers and/or actors. Tickets are sold by program.
