Through a Lens Darkly

Full Frame Documentary Film Festival: Through a Lens Darkly at Carolina Theatre - 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Nasher Museum fans will recognize many of the artists featured in a documentary presented by Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People is a unique examination of the way black photographers—and their subjects—have used the camera as a tool for social change from the time photography was invented to the present. The film illuminates the ways that Deborah Willis, Carrie Mae Weems, Lorna Simpson, Anthony Barboza, Hank Willis Thomas, Lyle Ashton Harris and Glenn Ligon have challenged popular culture’s definition of “blackness” and “black people.” Director Thomas Allen Harris will take part in a Q&A session after the screening. Tickets are $15
