Mother of the River: A Film by Zeinabu Irene Davis

Film Screening


6:30pm to 7:30pm




Join us for a screening of Mother of the River, a film by LA Rebellion director Zeinabu Irene Davis. Mother of the River is set in the 1850s and tells the story of a young slave girl who befriends a magical woman in the woods called 'Mother of the River.' Through their friendship the young girl learns about independence, honor, humility and respect for others. This is a rare portrayal of slavery from a young woman's perspective. There will also be a discussion about the film and the LA Rebellion led by a UCLA Film & Television Archive curator.
