Bay Area


Lineup [work in progress]: Connecting films based on shared themes or elements, so that one flows naturally into the next (as opposed to screening by category)

Khombo -> Pressure -> Checkmate -> Dream: all youth perspectives, follow with Fat-shamed? (body-image issues relevant for teens as well) White tee -> Real bogeyman: same artist and thematic material Real bogeyman -> Chainwheel -> Showdown: theme of resisting police state OR, Chainwheel -> Afrikatown -> Aunti Frances -> Pueblote -> Showdown Follow Showdown with Ballad? (military theme) Ballad -> Consequences: both about returning veterans and their POV, follow with Safi? (islamophobia relevant to war schemes) Follow Safi with White tee? (theme of persecution) OR The Choice -> Safi, theme of religious persecution
