WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- In the late 1960s the look of Hollywood cinema began to change. It was called the L.A. Rebellion, a time when a large group of African American filmmakers studied at the UCLA film school. These students showcased African and African American life.
This era in cinema is being celebrated at the National Gallery of Art. Writer and film director O. Funmilayo Makarah joined us on Wednesday to explain the movement and talk about the legacy of the L.A. Rebellion filmmakers.
