Los Angeles Filmforum at MOCA Presents Arthur Jafa's Dreams Are Colder Than Death

Screening

In person: Saidiya Hartman 

Arthur Jafa’s documentary Dreams Are Colder Than Death (2014) asks what it means to be Black in 21st-century America. Interviewing Black specialists and uncommon folks about what they think—and more importantly, what they know—Jafa captures a stream of the Black consciousness and a kaleidoscopic glimpse at Black American life. Among the film’s participants is Saidiya Hartman, Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University. Hartman introduces the documentary and engages in Q&A following the screening.
