Through A Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People - Soon Showing at Film Forum.

A compelling documentary, from the looks of the trailer alone, by filmmaker Thomas Allen Harris that looks at the visual history of black people in America through the power of photography.

On one hand, Harris delves into the world of black photographers in the United States who have used the camera to define themselves and re-create narratives that speak to African-American experiences and audiences on a fundamental level. On the other hand, the film looks at how the same medium of photography was used as a political and propagandist tool to demean and continuously oppress America’s black population through racist imagery. 

The film was inspired by Deborah Willis’s book, Reflections in Black,and sheds light on the profound importance and influence of how art can be used both as a form of empowerment and suppression. 

Through A Lens Darkly is will be on show at New York’s Film Forum from August 27th until September 6th
