February 20 This is America: High Art
Film Streams' repertory series curated by Ira Madison III

Film Streams' winter repertory series, curated by culture writer Ira Madison III, corresponds with Joslyn's special exhibition 30 Americans--the first major exhibition in Omaha to survey the work of contemporary African American artists, featuring work created over the past three decades by nationally and internationally recognized artists of color. 30 Americans offers a challenging--and at times disconcerting--account of race in the United States, and how our shared history continues to shape the ways we interact and engage with our fellow citizens today. 

This is America complements the vision and mission of this groundbreaking exhibition. The series includes ten provocative films that use innovative form, technical mastery, and daring subject matter to represent a spectrum of experience.
