L. A. Rebellion has become the most common term used to describe a group of Los Angeles-based African and African American film artists recognized largely for their work produced between the 1960s and 1980s, when most of them met as students in UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television. The term denotes an evolving group of many admirable facets. Among these were the diversity of its creative expressions, and the importance of women’s voices within the group. That same diversity, even among the women of the “L.A. Rebellion themselves” is underscored by this program of new restorations, two of which are premieres not included in the Archive’s 2011 program “L.A. Rebellion: Creating a New Black Cinema.” In their variety, however, all three films have in common not only an African-American woman’s perspective, but also a focus on the process of coming to consciousness.
