MicroCinema: A String of Pearls – The Films of Camille Billops and James Hatch
Pay-What-You-Can screening of short films presented by Indie Memphis and Crosstown Arts at Crosstown Theater
Indie Memphis and Crosstown Arts are proud to present three films from A String of Pearls: The Films of Camille Billops and James Hatch. Newly restored, these three shorts, Take Your Bags, Older Women and Love, and Suzanne, Suzanne, highlight the longtime creative partnership of artists, writers, and filmmakers Camille Billops and James Hatch.
Many of the six films they made together pull from and explore Billops’ specific point of view, her life, and the lives of her family. These films are singular, deeply creative, and incisive in their examination of the stripping of culture and identity because of slavery (Take Your Bags), the experiences of love and dating later in life (Older Women and Love), and the deep ripple effects that abuse has on a relationship between mother and daughter (Suzanne, Suzanne).
We’re grateful to Malkah Manouel and Third World Newsreel for making this MicroCinema possible!
