Seen your share of European and American cinema? Want to check out films from the other 85% of the world’s population? Join philosophy major Thomas Finan as he explores movies produced outside of the Western canon.

Pioneering Senegalese filmmaker Ousmane Sembene directed this controversial drama which deals in part with the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation, which is still practiced in a number of African nations in the name of “purification.” Six girls who are scheduled to undergo the traditional purification ceremony escape, and four make their way to the home of Colle Ardo Gallo Sy (Fatoumata Coulibaly), a wife and mother who is sympathetic to their dilemma. Colle casts a “moolaade” spell, which will bring harm to anyone who attempts to hurt those under Colle’s care. Moolaadé was awarded the Un Certain Regard prize at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival. []

ICE-Vision 10th Anniversary Edition: Style Wars

ICE-Vision 10th Anniversary Edition*: Style Wars (Silver, 1983)
Thursday, September 24 at 6 PM
Lamar Dodd School of Art Room S150

Style Wars is the legendary hip-hop documentary and a timeless film classic, the indispensable record of a golden age of youthful creativity and exploding hip hop subculture.

Directed by Tony Silver, and produced by Tony Silver and photographer Henry Chalfant, Style Wars was awarded the Grand Prize for Documentaries at the Sundance Film Festival in 1984. With the abridged one-hour broadcast premiere of Style Wars on PBS and Britain’s Channel Four in 1984, the world received its first full immersion into the phenomenon that had taken over New York City.

The urban landscape had been physically transformed by graffiti artists, who invented a new visual language to express both their individuality, and the voice of their community. Meanwhile, MC’s, DJ’s and B-boys were rocking the city with new sounds and new moves, as street corner breakdance battles became performance art.
