Nick Forster (Film and African American Studies) will moderate a discussion (via Skype) with Elaine Brown, former chairperson of the Black Panther Party following a screening of the film, “Seize the Time,” (Antonello Branca, 1970 Digibeta). The screening will take place on Friday, Sept. 27, 4pm, at Whitney Humanities Center, 53 Wall St.
“Seize the Time,” which rarely screens, is an Italian film that blurs the lines between narrative and documentary; its focus is the Black Panthers (view a trailer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YN3Qgqe6UQ).
Film Studies and the Italian Dept. are hostng the screening which is part of a film series they have cosponsored this fall that explores themes of politics and activism in the 1960s and 1970s.
