Zora Lathan and Iman Uqdah Hameen: On Black Interiority
Drawing on the extensive holdings of the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC)’s Earl W. and Amanda Stafford Center for African American Media Arts, this program is dedicated to the interiority of Black life. The screening pairs the experimental works of Zora Lathan (approx. 15 min, 1974-75), who uses her family as her muse, and the short film “Unspoken Conversation” (24 min, 1987) by Iman Uqdah Hameen, which explores a Black woman’s journey as a wife and mother. Join us to view these rarely seen treasures, and hear the filmmakers discuss their works with NMAAHC curator Rhea Combs and media conservator Ina Archer, with your questions welcomed as part of the closing conversation.  

This program is part of “Viewfinder: Women’s Film and Video from the Smithsonian,” a monthly virtual film screening and conversation series sponsored by the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative, Because of Her Story. This first sequence of selected works reflects on interiority—a particularly timely topic during this global pandemic. Visit WomensHistory.si.edu for more information about upcoming events in this screening series.
